“What a great place to stay”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

I stayed for one night in Paddy's Flat and couldn't fault it. It had everything you'd need for a very comfortable visit but what I loved
just as much as the inside was being able to sit and watch the river flow by. The units are hidden from the road and you can't hear any traffic. Such a nice place.

Reviewed 12 February 2013

We were so pleasantly surprised when we opened the door to our "Willows" room. We did not book in advance although we did use Google to find the location. Veronica (the owner) was extremely friendly upon checkin. The room was lovely, clean and with all the comforts of home and some added extras... a real find at an extremely reasonable price. We loved our stay and would happily recommend to others.

Three of us and a 3 year old child were visiting Hobart and wanted to stay somewhere outside the city. New Norfolk is very close and picturesque and easy to get to from Mona. A well equipped kitchen, lovely breakfast supplies and gardens leading down to a private little jetty.Comfortable furniture and relaxed owners.

The reviews of this accommodation vary greatly, clearly different expectations and perhaps different units. We stayed in 'The Willows' for two nights at the end of an anti-clockwise two weeks around Tasmania - wonderful to pull up short of Hobart after coming through from Strahan in rain.
Out of Hobart, yes, but an easy drive of an hour to the airport and 20 minutes from MONA. A pleasant country town - find Pulpit lookout for views (across the river) and the point where the little Lachlan River enters the Derwent for platypus and other wildlife. A great walk built along the river bank.

Our unit - The Willows - was very comfortable and with subtleties of design which grew on us - not a classy first impression wearing off quickly. Very well equipped, quality appliances and with nice supplies of all the basics of cereals, bread, milk, eggs, juice... (Replying to the reviewer who was disappointed at supplies:– after circling Tasmania, surely she, like we, was travelling with favourite foods?)

BUT please note, this unit, with internal steps up to bed, down to bath and kitchen, IS NOT for people with mobility problems.

Room Tip: We chose The Willows as having more facilities than the riverside studio apartment which was a littl...

Such a great cottage. It had everything we needed - from bath robes to modern bathroom. I would highly recommend this place and you have a wonderful views of the river. They even have cereal, toast, milk, different condiments, tea and coffee in your room. Great value for your money.

I was disappointed from the start. Was looking forward to our river view when we were down graded from that to a room with a view of the main road and no continental breakfast as stated. Very upset, it was my birthday holiday.

The one bedroom apartment was comfortable, and well appointed. We stayed three days and never saw service . No towel change, no garbage pick up, no floor vacuuming, no toilet paper replacement, No way to light the barbeque. At $155 nightly we really expected more
