A lovely, charming old villa that has been well appointed to provide a B&B experience. My room had a private bathroom and a very comfortable bed with good quality linen. Little extras were provided happy by the host and owner, Jenni. I happily recommend this place and would stay there again.

Amazing stay. Jenny & Tony have upheld and created a beautiful house with a century of history. Jenny has spent years in hospitality and it shows in their attention to detail. Bookshelf with waters, coffee, homemade banana bread whenever you like. Maps. Netflix at disposal. Comfy beds. Both Alan & Jenny in an earlier life were NZ tour guides and have possibly the best recommendation ever. Warm, kind, authentic.

We loved our stay. Our hosts were so welcoming and anticipating all our needs. Everything was clean, comfortable and tasteful. Jennie's gluten free banana bread was amazing. It is a pleasure to see this old villa so loved, and restored from previous owners' alterations. They have a genuine love and feel for the house. We felt totally at home and over three nights we had great sleeps in the comfortable bed.

Jennie and Tony were very welcoming. Jennie organised to pick us up from the bus and throughout our 3 night stay Jennie and Tony went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Very comfortable accommodation - kind sized bed, huge bedroom, lovely breakfasts and Jennie and Tony were very good company.
Thank you Jennie and Tony for your hospitality.

Thank you for your review.
It was really lovely to meet you both, and seeing pics of your lovely country location in Tasmania.
We hope your flight and ferry trip back to Tasmania was a good one.
We will keep in touch.

Jennie and Tony have owned this B&B for the last eight months. Jennie welcomed us giving us a tour of the B&B and history of the house, so lovely that she used to come here as a girl when it was Tea Rooms.
We were in the front room which had a lovely king bed and lots of room for our bags. The ensuite had everything we wanted!
It was lovely to sit in the lounge and enjoy a bottle of wine and beers that we brought with us, kept cold in the guest fridge in the hallway.
There was room to park our car out the back and the kitchen area, shared with hosts and other guests, was warm and welcoming. I especially loved the date scones and coffee on arrival.
This B&B is a great place to stay and a fabulous alternative to a hotel stay!

Hi Jill,
Thank you for your wonderful review.
We hope that your trip via Tane Mahuta and Omapere went well, and get to do everything you planned in the BOI during your last few days of this trip.
If you are ever up this way again, we would love to have you stay.
Kindest regards
Jennie and Tony
