“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2010

What a fantastic homestead!!! Everything about our stay here was perfect, and I never thought I would say that about any hotel or resaurant for that matter. The Head of house (Dylan) greeted us as VIP's and gave us a personal tour of Quamby. The rooms were perfection and within minutes we unwound into the allure of the estate. Our every need was tended to and the chef's food (Tom) and his dedication to us as guests at the estate was without question. My wife and I live in Tassie and we are planning our next winter break with the team at quamby within the next few weeks...... can't wait. I would reccomend Quamby to any one looking for a luxury, well priced short break and definately one for all the foodies!!! Great golf course to.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2010

Falls under the title of an "Historic Homestead" very old by Australian standards,1830's.
Very expensively restored, with luxury modern bathrooms.Surrounded by 64 hectares of good landscape 25 minutes from Launceston town and airport.With 9 hole golf course,tennis,snooker.Free WiFi.
Now the HQ of the group called Anthology (www.anthology.travel)who aim to be all things to all travellers .Offering long distance walks,Bay of Fires,Cradle Mountain,and Wilpena Pound (in South Australia).
At Quamby this leads to a difficult mix of guests,the sedentary like me and the manic long distance walkers who come and go using the estate as their base.
We were greeted by the very charming and able Liz Frankham and given a house tour.The star attraction is the Anglo-Indian architecture of the flag stoned verandah - you need good weather to enjoy it.
The bedroom count is soon to be expanded and this could be trouble as the public rooms are not large.Not sure if there is a head cook as new people kept appearing and dinner was of limited choice with a poor wine cellar.The menu repeated the third night.Noise from the kitchen tends to fill the building but the staff are charming.Recorded "musack"can intrude.Please don't ask for a cooked breakfast: it seemed to shock the staff when I asked for an egg.
Upstairs a fine landing led to our room which had one of the best bathrooms I have ever used.The bedroom tends to be over warm and the small window was difficult to reach.A fan for the summer would help.There is no room phone,but a great ipod clock radio.More cleaning was needed.The shampoo not restocked in three days.The car park lay out is confusing.
The room rate is a shade high,but the old building is well renovated and the views and trees great.
