We spent two nights at Hamlet Downs and were treated like royalty, even had the Queen Room. Very comfortable and homely place to stay, the breakfasts and dinners were delicious, cooked to perfection and using local produce.

Received a warm welcome and the evening meal was amazing, served in our private sun room overlooking the lovely garden. The room and grounds were awesome. We enjoyed a lovely walk around the grounds after dinner. We really enjoyed our brief stay and felt totally relaxed. We didn't want to leave.

Stayed in King Room, which had great views from the sunroom over the beautiful gardens and ponds. A great property with easy access to Mt Field National Park and southwestern wilderness. Our host Jennifa made us feel welcome and cooked fabulous meals, from local produce; well worth the additional cost. Strolling around the property was relaxing; watched platypus forage in...

We felt like family due to Jennifer's warm hospitality. The characterful old house was comfortable and warm. Jennifer's home cooking, if you book the evening meals, is excellent and rated among the best food on our holiday and her sourdough wholemeal bread at breakfast time was to die for. The garden is amazing and the location of the property, close...
