    A short but very enjoyable stay

    We stayed one night in the Oak Room, which was very comfortable. The bathroom facilities and lounge were well appointed.

    Clifford was a wonderful host and prepared the most amazing full breakfast featuring a cornucopia of his home-grown produce. Simply delicious.

    Would happily recommend a stay at Stony Rise Cottage to friends and family.

    What a wonderful place to stay. Cliff and Fifi were such incredible hosts that could not do enough for us which made our stay such a memorable one. We felt very welcome and the house and our room were truly amazing and so well set up. The bedroom was spacious with a very large comfortable bed along with a tastefully designed en suite (including a heated floor). We totally recommend Stony Rise Cottages to anyone travelling to Devonport as it was one of the highlights of our trip and if every back in Tasmania we will definitely be visiting again.

    Comfortable friendly stay

    Stayed here for two nights for a nearby meeting, the thing I judge on are cleanliness, sleep quality (especially pillows) and breakfast. All these were great and better than most accommodation that I have stayed in. Lost 0.1 for a little traffic noise in my room, not enough to disturb sleep but noticeable. Grounds are beautiful and relaxing. Easier if you have a car but only a short taxi to town.

    I had a wonderful stay, (all be it very short) at Stony Rise. Fantastic hosts Fi and Cliff make you feel extremely welcome – they feel more like old friends than people you have just met. The facilities are gorgeous. Clean, beautifully presented, with all needs provided for. The gardens are stunning and relaxing. The cooked breakfast was delicious and included jams and preserves from the properties own fruit trees. All in all, a delightful place to stay, that I would recommend to all. I hope I get the chance to go back and spend some more time there.

The rooms are comfortable and warm, the bathroom very well appointed and I felt very welcome in the guest lounge where I could make a drink and sit in comfort catching up on emails. This accommodation is well situated, close to town with beautiful grounds, especially in spring! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

    This is a beautiful location, a stylish older style home with quality fittings and a magnificent garden to enjoy and relax in. Cliff and Fi were outstanding hosts giving us their attention and support during our stay. We had two little children with us and this was never and issue for them. In fact they welcomed us into their home and our children played with their grandchildren. We also had our own privacy and areas to relax in including a lounge and sunny balcony. The location was perfect for our connections to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service, and to down town Devonport.

    Clifford and Fifi are wonderful hosts. Their B&B is charming and very comfortable. The bedrooms and amenities are large, comfortable and clean. The lounge is elegant and comfy too. The little added extras like bottled water and chocolates bedside and a very well equipped bathroom were greatly appreciated. Do yourself a favour and stay for breakfast with Clifford and Fifi, they are lovely people and their breakfast is sensational (best strawberries ever!! and Fifi’s home grown tomatoes were awesome but hard to keep on your plate, whoops, sorry about that) and great value. We had a wonderful time and only regret that we weren’t staying longer. The proximity to The Spirit of Tasmania berth is an added bonus if you are sailing the Strait by day.

Great set up for a couple of teenagers in one room and parents and younger child in another plus a lounge area to watch TV/DVDs or just relax. Bedrooms are very spacious and free Wi-Fi meant our kids were extremely content! Gorgeous grounds to wander throughout or take advantage of the back porch and enjoy a drink, which we did. Short drive to the city centre for dinner and a drive around the Mersey Bluff area.
