Great breakfast
Fantastic breakfast, service and location right by Platypus Walk. A great place to stay but our rooms was hot and small with thin walls so we heard snoring from next door all night.

Home-made stewed fruits
The room we stayed in was spacious and comfortable, but the bathroom had obviously not been used (or cleaned) for a while - resident daddy long-legs spiders and webs present, some dust under the claw-footed bath and quite a dust collection under the bed. However, the towels were changed after our first night and bed made up (unsure whether sheets were changed or not). Cooked breakfast was set but good - poached eggs, toast, mushrooms, tomato, bacon. Home-made stewed fruits were delicious - rhubarb or apple and blackberry. Small/basic selection of cereals - weet-bix, cornflakes + 1 other (just right?).

Cambridge House is a lovely heritage property set in beautiful grounds which go right down to the Kermandie River. If your lucky, like us, you’ll catch a glimpse of the resident platypus. Our room, The Giffen, was spacious, immaculate & spotless. The bed was very comfortable & we slept soundly in this peaceful haven. It is handy to the shops & great restaurants in Geeveston. I recommend ‘The Bank’. Karen & Glen we’re welcoming hosts & the breakfast was hearty & delicious. We look forward to returning to stay here again & highly recommend it as a comfortable stopover.

The managers were engaging and breakfast was just great The stairs to your room were a little steep, especially with a big bag and the acoustics between downstairs and upstairs not so good but overall a great place to stay

Relax and support the locals!
Don't get me wrong this was a lovely chance to rest and relax. But the accommodation is a bit tired. Our bathroom was across the hall & wasn't convenient, especially at 3am! Also very small. The furnishings are traditional with the heritage theme, but could use some updating. As with most B&B's it was a bit noisy, you can hear the other people. Glen & Karen cooked a beautiful hot breakfast! Karen was very friendly and helpful too. There is a creek close by with is a lovely walking track. Yes we would stay here again, but ask for a different room next time. One with a bit more space. Pretty cottage, pretty garden.
