Maxine and Graham are wonderful people with a real talent. They made us feel so welcome in their family home, whilst giving us privacy. There were 5 other couples staying the same night, yet we all received personal service and the house did not feel at all crowded. I honestly don't know how they do it!
We stayed in an upstairs loft room which was both quiet and comfortable. The house itself is on 3 levels and has the most amazing views of the ocean from the spacious dining room.
Included in our rate was a 3 course dinner which Maxine lovingly prepared for my husband, son and I (the other couples ate at the local pub, their loss, haaa). We had fresh chicken and vegetable soup, lamb shanks with vegetables and apple/rhubarb crumble for dessert and it was DIVINE! They also have a great selection of Tasmanian wines to chose from, all reasonably priced.
Breakfast was amazing. A huge array of choice. We had the 'maxine special' which was eggs with salmon and baby spinach but there was a choice of at least 10 other optionsfor hot food. Homestyle jams, King Island yougurt, home-made bread was among some of the other tempting offerings included for breakfast.
I was very impressed with Hanlon House and my only regret is that we only stayed one night. We will definitely return again. Stanley is a hidden gem.
