From the first step you are invited to step into their house, Remi and Ginette make their guests feel very comfortable. The rooms are large, well decorated and spotless. There are plenty of things to do in the region so the location just outside Sheffield is also perfect. On our first day we had planned to visit Cradle Mountain but...

After a fabulous meal in Devonport (at Mrs Jones restaurant), we stayed here on the way to Cradle Mountain. The owners are a French, foodie couple and we could easily have eaten here too. Place was meticulously clean with L'Occitane products in the bathroom. We were in the front bedroom on the right. Bed was firm and comfortable; bathroom was...

Stayed here for two nights, our room was at the front of the house and was nice and bright, bathroom was too small for the $170 a night price tag with no place to put things, water pressure was good, bed was comfy and thankfully had an electric blanket as it was very cold, we did have trouble with the...

Beautiful garden - a very relaxing place to enjoy delicious food. Despite the rain, still a nice view from the porch. Charming service and good value. We enjoyed home made soup and very tasty french desserts. Over all a lovely time and would recommend to all.

I am so glad we decided to stay here instead of Cradle Mountain. Having lived in France I have a soft spot for all things French, especially French food. Glencoe did not disappoint. Little did I know when I booked that Remi is one of the best chefs in Tasmania, renown for his restaurant in Hobart. Make sure you book...

We detoured to visit Glencoe for a lovely lunch, which was well worth it. The gardens are delightful and the cafe seating is outside under the trees, under the verandah or inside. It was great strolling around the gardens enjoying their many trees and plants. Whilst there we looked at the B & B rooms which are very French in...

We stayed at Glencoe as a part of a road tour of Northern Tasmania. The location was good just a short drive from Sheffield where you can buy your winter clothing at Slaters. The grounds seem a little run down and in need of attention but inside the house was otherwise clean and tidy. Our room was well presented if...
