Simply gorgeous

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This delightful boutique luxury hotel is situated on the edge of the Derwent River in New Norfolk. Built in the 1800’s by convicts, the building once was used for a “Young gentlemen’s school”.

The hotel is more like a refine B&B with nine rooms, each named after the history of the building. Our room was upstairs called the “Sarah Schaw” suite, which was very spacious with queen size bed, tea and coffee facilities, mini bar, TV, DVD player, two ultra modern chairs, working desk and coffee table. The best feature was our working open fireplace, which we used every night whilst sipping wine. (Very romantic).

The bathroom was modern and well appointed. Our plantation shutter windows had gorgeous views of the river. Downstairs are more suites and two large sitting rooms. One room consisted of a massive plasma TV and two enormous couches for relaxing in and another working fire-place. There is also a dining suite for playing cards or chess. Free port was available on the sideboard. The other sitting room had lovely comfortable furniture with magazines, games, and books to entertain you with. The breakfast room was off the large sitting room.

The building is situated on a large suburban block with gorgeous maintained gardens. There is a sauna and spa located next to the parking area. The art work by Fiona Dempster is also very impressive and the mixture of antique with modern furniture blends into a striking interior.

If you are into luxury B&B’s then this hotel is perfect. This hotel is in a good position if you want to explore the South West region, the Mt Field National Park is on your doorstep. For dinner you have a few options such as dining at Veranda’s or the local pub, both within walking distance from Woodbridge.

Tip: Woodbridge on the Derwent is not in Woodbridge but is located in New Norfolk. New Norfolk is located approximately 30 minutes west of Hobart, on the beautiful Derwent River.

Unique Quality: A delightful boutique hotel offering excellent river views and comfortable cosy rooms.
