Reviewed 7 April 2012

We recently enjoyed our third stay at Tynwald, the building and the authentic country house style is perfect. The hosts Pat and Gary make us ever so welcome, they even remember our names!!!! The meals are superb, breakfast is fine quality local food. The bedrooms take you back in time, and the lounge is a divine spot to enjoy a pre diner drink or a late evening glass of port. Everything at Tynwald is first class. Gary and Pat are marvelous hosts, this is true old english style bed and breakfast, We are looking forward to visiting gain next year, thank you Pat and Gary, the oatcakes are ace!!!!

This is an absolutely delightful experience. As other reviewers have said, it really is like stepping back in time. We found a picture of Tynwald in a brochure and decided to travel in a direction that took us there and what a joy. We don't usually select older style B&Bs but we are so glad that we did with Tynwald.

The setting and building is very special and Pat is a priceless gem in herself. The rooms are spacious and so authentic, and many little touches from your caring hosts. Make sure you stay in for dinner. The evening lights and ambience of the dining room brings the home to life. The Staffordshire Oatcakes for an entree still have my hubby purring and the meal was as you would hope for from the accomplished chefs, Pat and Garry.

Admittedly this loved home is showing it's age and gives you an insight into the maintenance needs of these old manors and you won't be getting luxurious bathrooms......but you will get wonderfful hospitality, a comfy and cozy bed, an insight into the riches of the period and an experience that is truly precious.

Oh and surprisingly one of the best WiFi spots we had on our entire Tasmanian trip.

Room Tip: We stayed downstairs and both rooms there looked good. We did not see the upstairs rooms so can'...

Walking into Tynwald is really a strip back into time. It is antique heaven..
The biggest point of difference is the owners and hosts are both qualified chefs.
The rooms are old school charm, after visiting Woolmers I feel like I am staying there. The house built circa 1830, is charming yet due for repair.

This us well worth the visit and the stay.

We recently stayed at Tynwald Estate over the Australia Day long weekend. We were warmly greeted by Pat and Garry who were attentive hosts and made our stay that even more memorable with their generous hospitality & fabulous food. We shared a laugh or two :-) and overall couldn't recommend this place highly enough!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Waterfall room which had a great spa bath

After seeing photos of Tynwald I changed our plans to stay one night in Hobart and one night here, instead of both nights in Hobart. We arrived at Tynwald to find an envelope at the front door with our name on it and a key for the back door inside. Pat apologised that she wasn't there to meet us but to please let ourselves in and make ourselves at home and our room was number 3 at the top of the stairs. We found our room which was facing the river and had access to the large balcony that goes nearly the whole way around the house. The view from upstairs stretches for miles across the hills. We went into town to have a look around and when we came back Pat had also returned and there were some pretty good smells coming from the kitchen. Pat is a very easy person to talk to, interesting but a good listener too and she didn't push us into having dinner at Tynwald but we are so glad we did. Garry is the head chef and our main meals were brilliant. Pat is a pastry chef and her chocolate raspberry risotto is amazing.They make all their own bread and have an excellent coffee machine. There was another table of 4 dining but we felt like we had our own chef and waiter and the experience was sublime. Breakfast next morning in the original kitchen was cooked to order and the home made hash browns are excellent as is the leaf tea and real coffee. We were in no hurry to leave and once again enjoyed a wonderful conversation with Pat.Their little cat Tommy was very sweet and the whole 'Tynwald experience' was one I hope we can repeat again in the future.

Room Tip: Upstairs facing the river offers great views.

Great old historic house with the ruins of the old flour mill, including the original millstone, onsite. Room we stayed in had access to the verandah, so had a beer on arrival watching the view, very nice. Pat and Gary, the hosts, were great in accommodating our kids. They are both chefs, so dinner and breakfast were superb, especially the pork, the most tender I've eaten! Thommy the cat provided great entertainment for the kids, sorry Thommy. Thank you Pat and Gary for your kindness and generosity during our stay.

I would advise anybody travelling to Tasmania to make a bee line to New Norfolk. We travelled to that location and had made a prior booking for Tynwald Manor. The old world charm is beyond belief, it is a complete step back in time. Our hosts, Pat and Garry, were the best hosts i feel we have encountered in our many trips. Nothing was too much trouble, the Meals were out of this world, and the wine cellar was extensive. There are no words to express our gratitude to Pat & Garry for their warm hospitality and freindly advice to many questions we posed in regard to the New Norfolk area.
Any travellers who miss this opportunity to partake in sheer excellence need their heads read.
Our best to those two wonderful people, and we will be heading back down that way on another occasion.
John Merryl.

Room Tip: All rooms were great.
