My fiancée and I were warmly greeted by Leanne and Don when we arrived, and Leanne gave us a tour of the immaculately clean and tidy house. Coffee and biscuits were available, and cake and biscuits were delivered to our room. Our room had a adjoining bathroom with a spa. Everything was super shiny and spotless. We took a stroll... More

Donalea is everything a B&B should be. Welcoming hosts that are helpful and not intrusive. The room was spacious and well decked out with all you would need. The breakfast was great. Most importantly, its situated in a beautiful area

Stayed in a delightful 2 bed unit. Was so nice, sorry we only had 1 night there! The owners, Don and Lea, were very welcoming, and provided fruit cake, chocs, apples, and breakfast food. It's in a lovely garden, with outside table and chairs, not far to drive for dinner, and to visit the Huon Valley. I'd highly recommend it,... More

Donalea is one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. We were there for two nights and could have happily stayed for two weeks. Don and Leanne have restored the house and the gardens so beautifully, you feel relaxed and peaceful as soon as you walk in.

Only booked two hours before arrival but Leanne was all organised. Great set up and Don has a lovely garden. Home made jams and bread for breakfast after a relaxing spa and a great nights sleep. Some helpful advise for our dinner and our forward plans.

This was a great way to spend 2 nights in the Huon. Don and Leanne make you feel at home and the view of the river is fantastic at any time of the day. The location is pretty central to all things Huon. Great location and place to stay
