“See if you can solve the mystery of Elizabeth Buscombe’s missing jewels. Legend has it she hid them somewhere in the house in 1860, but couldn’t remember where. They have never been found…”

Head Chef Kurstin Berriman showcases the best of the Coal River Valley with a menu that is opulent yet refined.

Our kitchen uses seasonal produce from the garden, orchard and celebrates farmers and producers of South East Tasmania. Our convict-built cellar is home to local award-winning  wines.

We serve breakfast and dinner daily, and provide a tailored picnic lunch on request.


“Come for the gourmet dinner and stay for an amazing breakfast! We only had one night but what a treat. Modern, clean and comfortable rooms with super friendly staff – nothing is too much for them. This is the way a private hotel should be run!! 5 stars” – Stephen P.
