Put a night at Geeveston during our 2 week Tassie road trip & this place has definitely exceeded our expectations in every way! Vintage setting with modern amenities- bedroom/bathroom were very clean & well maintained (nice heated shower & electric blanket); service here was even better! The new owners here (as of late 2016) really made a difference with their...

Helpful owners. close to all amenities. They even hung out my hiking gear to dry. I stayed here after an exhausting 5 day trek in the South West World Heritage area. The bar is good, free barista coffee made by the owner himself. Helpful family run business.

You made your booking for a family room with Booking.com,...

Cute, quaint boutique hotel. Comfortable bed. Advertised as $100 per night for two people on the website including continental breakfast, however is actually $110 for two people without breakfast. Wifi advertised but extremely slow in our room.

Exquisitely fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented by the owner. We had lunch with Reisling in front of the fire. Then we went for our walk up in the Hartz Mountain. Huon Valley is the pick of places in Tasmania.

Our salmon comes fresh from Huon aquaculture, just down the road, and has never seen a freezer. We love the Huon Valley, and the Hartz is one of our favourite getaway walks so it...

Cosy and comfy olde worlde feel. Great idea to have coats for sale in the sitting room as it was so cold. Self serve continental breakfast was great and plentiful. Hostess was helpful and friendly. Room a bit cramped for 3 adults Reasonable price. Great position in the main street.
