I had a lovely night staying at Stony Rise Cottages. The hosts Cliff and Fifi were wonderful friendly hosts and cooked the most amazing hot breakfast in the morning
Thank you Steve.
A quality historical building which is well maintained. We were greeted very warmly and made welcome. We were even assisted the next day on where we could visit. We were also grateful in the assistance given as our vehicle needed a small repair the next morning.
Thanks Gordon and trust the vehicle repair was OK.
Great first night in Tassie – just off the boat. Beautifully decorated in heritage style bedroom and lovely gardens. We had a warm and comfortable sleep thank you!
Thanks Carmen. So glad your stay was enjoyable.
Lovely welcoming accommodation perfect after our trip on the ferry. Very comfortable room, would recommend to others
Thank you Ed, come again.
Thank you for your kind help and assistance with our booking / stay. I greatly appreciate you going above and beyond!
Extremely well appointed and comfortable cottage – everything you need is provided and the hosts went above and beyond to ensure our holiday went well. Very good setup with small children as the cottage has its own backyard as well as books and colouring pencils. Breakfast was superb and is highly recommended. We are so glad we chose this property as it was the perfect base for us in Devonport.
So glad you enjoyed your stay Jackie.
My partner and I stayed here on our last night before heading back to Melbourne, first impressions was amazing, the owners are very friendly and helpful with anything you may need! We had a amazing stay and will 100% recommend to family and friends. Will be staying here again when we come back!
Cliff & Fifi were wonderful hosts. We took a room with ensuite and it was beautiful. The room was very large with a heated bathroom floor (luxury).
There is lots of little touches of luxury at Stony Rise Cottage.
We only stayed the one night and as there were three of us we booked the cottage with seperate bedrooms, a shame we didn’t have more time as the cottage ammenities were many and well set up for a longer stay. Will defiantly use this Bed n’ breakfast again if we’re passing in the future.
Thank you and hope to see you again.
Wow factor in the Magnolia Room. Every item you could require already thought of! Excellent Art Deco fittings/lamps. If there ibvs a 5 Star rated B&B this would be it. Recommended at good value.
Would stay again. Committed owners provide instant support!
Thank you Philip for your generous review…hope to see you again.
Great place and easy convenientl location. Room was very tidy and clean.
Thanks Adrian for taking the time to review us.
Perfect place to stay fifi and cliff were very welcoming and helpful on arrival. The room was amazing and comfortable, will definitely be staying here on my future visits to Devonport.
Thank you Tamika.
Unfortunately, our stay was not what we had hoped for.
We were catching the ferry in the morning, and although paid for bed and breakfast, did not receive breakfast.
I think it may be useful to know for those catching morning ferries that no breakfast is provided.
Even a little continental breakfast would have been really appreciated.
Having said that, the room was reasonable and the bed comfy.
No ensuite, so have to share the one bathroom with others
No fridge in room or use of one in the establishment was another letdown, a shame because the cottage looks so great online.
This is a disappointing review because it contains a number of inaccuracies which we would wish to clarify as follows:-
1. The booking for this guest did not include payment for breakfast.
2. Booking was made by the guest through the Booking.com platform which sets out clearly that breakfast is additional to the room price and that the room shares a bathroom.
3. Our website also is clear that the Oak Room shares a bathroom and that breakfast is an additional extra.
4. Our room rates are structured in this way as our guests often have an early morning departure to meet the ferry sailing schedule. That allows us to reduce the room rate by excluding the breakfast cost.
5. Price for the room also recognizes that the room comes without an ensuite.
6. Reference to the absence of a fridge in the room is noted. We are in the process of adding fridges to rooms. Presently three of our rooms do have a fridge, but unfortunately not the Oak Room as yet where Mr and Mrs Chartres stayed.
It is hoped that these comments do go some way toward clarifying the guest comments. We have endeavored to place all relevant information on the booking platform websites, on our own website and are continually reviewing it to ensure its accuracy.
A hidden little gem on a lovely property We had a relaxing overnight stay Beautiful room ,warm and cosy Our host Cliff was friendly and made us feel very welcome Highly recommended
We appreciate your comments Simone, thank you.
Very pleasant experience. Have never stayed at B&B before and was very impressed. Room decor was lovely, service impeccable and the rooms were very comfortable. Clifford (the host) was very friendly and talked to me early on the morning of departure. My only suggestion to him, was a small fridge in the room, but other than that I loved staying there. The grounds are beautiful, a property I’d love to own/live in myself all the time. Thank you for a memorable stay.
Neil, thanks for your very generous comments.
After a warm welcome by Fi and Sorcha we had a great overnight stay in the Magnolia room. Comfortable, clean and such a beautiful room. Our elderly dog Lola was well catered for and was able to sleep comfortably in our ensuite in a comfy bed provided.
Thanks Steph, glad you enjoyed it.
Fifi& Cliff are very nice and friendly. They helped a lot when I stay in Devonport for first time. The room is tidy and elegant. Bathroom is clean and bedroom is warm. Fantastic experience staying here！I will stay here next time when I come to Devonport.
Thanks Ashley, glad you succeeded with your test.
Lovely stay with Cliff and Fifi. Great accommodation and breakfast and wonderful hosts. We’ll be back. Kind regards Rob & Ailsa.
Thanks you Rob for your kind comments….looking forward to catching up.
What an amazing place to rest your head. After a very long drive, we were lucky enough to find stony rise cottages. We were greeted at the door by the owner and sorcha the adorable pup! Checking was quick and easy and the owner is just beautiful. I REALLY wanted a bath, the heater was already on and the bath was just glorious! Candles and radox ready to use! Would recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing night away. Love bron and AJ x
Thanks Bron, it was a pleasure to have you and AJ stay with us….best wishes
Fifi and Cliff are great hosts, the rooms are comfy and you really feel like at home. Me and my partner really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you Csenge.
Fi and Cliff, are to be commended for their warm hospitality and efforts, in presenting each room with an individual theme.
This lovely little gem of a bygone era, nestled amongst, more modern houses,
is a welcome relief from everyday type accommodation .
My wife and I enjoyed our brief but very pleasant stay.
Those 12 foot high ceilings with beautiful rosettes, brought a warm tear of nostalgia to my eye, as it so closely resembled my Grandfathers long gone
Farmhouse. Dee and Donald McDonald
Thanks Don. Your comments are truly appreciated particularly in the current unprecedented times.
Both my partner and I would like to thank Fi & Cliff for their hospitality, Stony Rise is a lovely B&B, from our accommodations, through to breakfast the next morning, nothing was too much trouble, loved the selections of spreads for brekkie.
Thank you very much Fi & Cliff, we look forward to our next visit to Stony Rise Cottage.
Regards and Thanks
Luke & Kathy.
Your very generous comments are much appreciated Luke. We hope to see you again.
Thank you Cliff and Fifi, the room was beautiful, the bed was great. I slept like a log. See you again soon.
Awesome home, only got to stay one night in late out early. Clifford is a very personable host with a deep knowledge and appreciation for this historic homestead.
Ray T. Brisbane.
Thanks Ray, it was a pleasure to have you stay.
My stay of a few days was relaxing and enjoyable in the carefully and thoughtfully decorated cottage. Cliff and Fifi were the perfect hosts. I certainly will be staying there on my next visit to Tasmania
Lovely comments Edna….we hope to see you again.
What a wonderful B&B, Our Hosts Cliff and Fifi could not have been more accommodating. Beautiful House and Gardens. We loved our ample breakfast, cooked by Fifi, with her home grown and home made preserves. and lets not forget to mention the breakfast conversation. We left knowing that we would go back again.
Thank you for your lovely comments.
What a place to stay while in Devonport, central to the attractions of this great area. With wonderful hosts Fifi and Cliff and the attention to detail at their breakfasts is amazing with nothing being too much trouble.
It was a pleasure to have you and Marilyn stay Kev. Best of luck in the competition.
Stony Rise is just wonderful – there’s no other way to put it. Comfortable beds, delightful and engaging hosts, beautiful gardens and a lovely breakfast cooked to our liking with fruit and jams grown/made onsite. 10/10 would recommend.
Thank you Desiree….so glad that you and Michael enjoyed your stay.
Highly recommended, The property is outstanding and the service we received from fifi and cliff was amazing. The home cooked breakfast was fantastic!! Just like mum would cook !! Most of the food is home grown, one must try the passionfruit and Tomato jam. The fruit served is home grown and bottled by fifi. We certainly will be returning in the near future. 5/5
Thanks Carol for your very generous words.
Excellent and friendly B & B. Our room was lovely and comfortable. Beautiful grounds to walk around as well. Breakfast, with our friendly hosts, was superb…including home made fruits and preserves.
Thank you Fi and Clifford for making us feel so welcome !
Thank you Simon (and Sue) for your kind comments.
Recommend a stay at Stony Rise.We enjoyed being pampered by Cliff and Fifi in this beautiful B&B. The garden setting added to our peaceful stay with full country breakfast an optional extra.Proximity to Devonport ferry and surrounding attractions a plus.
Thank you Julie. Fifi and I are very glad you enjoyed your stay.
Cosy and clean. Would definitely recommend.
Very pleasant stay in clean and cossy, professionally run Cottage.
Thanks Peter for your kind comments.
I recently stayed a few days at Stony Rise Cottage. I was greeted warmly by the hosts, Fifi and Clifford. The room I stayed in was nice , friendly room.
I also enjoyed a tasty breakfast.
Thank you Juergen.
My friend and I recently stayed overnight at Stony Rise Cottage. We were greeted warmly by the hosts, Fifi and Clifford. The room we stayed in was warm, inviting and comfortable. I would be very happy to stay here again.
Thanks for your very kind words…..Best wishes……Fifi & Clifford
Thankyou for a lovely relaxing stay- our family of three really enjoyed the cosy room and all the thoughtful little touches made it feel like home. It was a great welcome to our Tassie Adventure.
Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay, thank you…….Regards….Fifi and Clifford
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our few days around Devonport and our accommodation at Stony Rise Cottages. The room was appropriate and comfortable, the ambience was refreshing, the hospitality was very welcoming, and the breakfasts were as good as any we have experienced through a lifetime of travel.
Thank you Fi and Cliff.
Elva and Kev.
Thanks for your very generous review. It was a pleasure having you stay with us…..Best wishes…..Fifi and Clifford
Had an absolutely wonderful stay at Stony Rise cottages. Fifi and Clifford are superb hosts and Fifi’s full breakfast with home grown fruits and home made jams is divine. Would definitely recommend for guests looking for the warmth of home, away from home.
Thanks for your thoughtful review. We loved meeting you and your Mum and hope to see you again one day.
Cliff and Fi are fabulous hosts and would recommend Stony Rise cottages for overnight accomodation. The rooms are of good size and the hosts are very accomodating to your needs. Both Fi and Cliff serve a beautiful breakfast that is enough fuel for the day.
Thank you for your generous comments…Very best wishes……Clifford
Thank you once again Clifford and Fi for a great stay in your very special Magnolia Room. Both times I have appreciated all the charming touches you have given the room and property as a whole. It is evident this has been a labour of love, and your guests enjoy it also. It is such a great location too, as I found everything I needed to be close and convenient. And the fact that you also live on the premises meant that I felt safe at all times.
Thanks again, hope to see you both one day!
Thank you Beatrice and best wishes for your sea change…..Clifford
Thank you for a lovely stay.
Friendly hosts who have the best breakfasts going around.
will stay again when working up on the coast 🙂
Very comfortable rooms and very easy to find. Hosts Fifi and Cliff were very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was great and the conversations around the table were friendly and inspiring.
Recommend to all whether it be business or holiday.
Had a delightful stay at this quaint place! Agree with all previous glowing reviews!
A great stay last week. Terrific accommodation/breakfasts and even better hosts – Thanks Fifi & Cliff.
This place is a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. Everything perfect and more. Friendliness and cleanliness was superb. Will definitely return here. It truly captured my heart.!
Beautiful accommodation, lovely grounds and conveniently located. The hospitality was also exceptional. Highly recommend place to 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.
Missed doing my rating the first time.
Just needed to chill out and relax midst a busy two days and here is the perfect place to do so! Quiet, extremely comfortable and special historic restored ambience. Thank you!
It was a pleasure to have you stay with us Alwyn….hope to see you again……Clifford
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.
Thank you Liz…glad you enjoyed your stay……Clifford
Five stars ( I can’t make the website go above 4.9).
Clean and tidy room. Really friendly and helpful reception. Attention to detail facilities – everything you could ask for. A lovely stay. Thank you!!
Cliff and Fifi made us very welcome. It was home away from home – very clean and comfortable. We had a choice of having our own bathroom or a shared bathroom. They were also helpful in planning our next trip
We enjoyed our night’s stay at this quaint period home. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Room was comfortable and everything was nice and clean. Note it is a shared bathroom. Was ok but prefer our own en-suite but very clean
This house has the comfort of home, no matter where you come from. Cliff and Fifi are friendly and welcoming, and their home is utterly charming! Our highlight was how comfortable the bed was. Will definitely be staying here again in the future
An extremely warm welcome from hosts Fifi and Cliff. Both couldn’t have done more to make us feel at home. Great night’s sleep in a comfortable bed and a huge breakfast of locally sourced and grown produce that kept us going all day!
I’m loathe to give Stony Rise Cottage a sparkling review because then EVERYONE will discover Devonport’s treasure accommodation!
Have just had my second stay at Stony Rise Cottage with seriously fabulous hosts Fifi & Clifford. It’s been more than delightful & I can’t speak highly enough of every aspect…in fact, all you have to do is relax, unwind & enjoy! I would also recommend the home cooked breakfast! Wowie!!
First Class & 5 Stars all round!
It was a lovely – clean, cute and welcoming.
Clifford also advised my friends, who were travelling on within Western Tasmania, about where they could go, which was helpful.
I would stay there again.
Enjoy the charm of this traditional homestead, host Cliff and Fifi ensured that we felt welcomed, provided tips for dinner in town and a traditional breakfast($18pp) the following morning including bacon, eggs, field mushrooms and fresh fruit picked from their trees.
The ensuite room was spacious and provided every comfort. A wonderful breakfast and enjoyable time spent with hosts Fifi and Cliff
Absolutely the best. Fifi and Cliff are just wonderful hosts. Food just fantastic and the home is certainly a home away from home. You cannot go past this.
We loved it so much we travelled back and stayed another night. The breakfast is one you will not forget and the friendly Fifi and Cliff provided us with an excellent a most comfortable room and facilities.
We were very happy with our stay and enjoyed meeting Cliff and Fifi
Very comfortable and peaceful
Recommend highly to all
I had a wonderful time here.
Fifi and Cliff were friendly and most helpful.
I would certainly recommend them.
For me, it was home away from home.
My daughter and I had a most enjoyable time at Stony Rise Cottage. Fifi and Clifford were wonderful hosts. Our room was lovely. Breakfast was delicious. Fifi took us for a tour around the gardens. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed the most lovely of stays with Clifford and Fifi. Beautiful gracious property, peaceful garden, wonderful breakfast and spacious rooms with amazingly comfortable beds. Clifford and Fifi are so warm and accommodating and felt like family from the moment you met – so hope I get the opportunity to stay with them again. If you are travelling through the area then do yourself a favour and stay here – one of the best experiences you will ever have.
An amazing property. Very picturesque. The rooms are beautiful, clean and the beds are very comfortable. You must have breakfast. Everything is organic and tasty. Clifford and FiFi are lovely and friendly hosts.
stayed 6 nights, both of us had a great time. cliff and fifi are excellent hosts good conversationalists and charming erudite people. the room was outstanding high ceiling and well set up. the breakfast is sensational Christine did not want to leave. we will definitely be back. the gardens and grounds are great and the air is sweet,, we loved it
What a wonderful place to stay…… Fifi and Clifford are absolutely delightful and make you feel so welcome the moment you arrive, we will be back again and hope to bring some family
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.
Great stay here for one night. Hosts were friendly and helpful and I felt right at home. Breakfast was generous and tasty and will be staying again.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.
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.
Thanks Terril and we would like to see you again also.
Fantastic Friendly Hosts. Accommodation was spot on. My wife Deborah and I considered it to be the best place we stayed at in our 10 day trip of Tassie. Thank you Cliff and Fifi. We will be back.
Very much appreciated John.
Thankyou to Fifi and Clifford for the lovely stay at Stony rise cottage in Devonport Tas. We had a very warm welcome and the stay was very comfortable the place has beautiful gardens and the house has lots of charm. The beautiful smell of bread cooking gave it that extra mile.
Was very enjoyable!
Your very kind and generous comments are appreciated, thank you.
This was one of the best places we stayed in during our 9 days in Tassie. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and Clifford was very friendly and offered good advice on places to eat around the area. Thoroughly enjoyed our night here and would definitely stay again
Stony Rise Cottage Bed and Breakfast has a wonderful, warm feeling, matching the welcome from the hosts who were very helpful, providing a list of places locally where I could eat. 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.
Warm welcome, lovely little extras that were much appreciated, and a super breakfast menu!
Thank you Clifford and Fifi for welcoming us into your beautiful home. We enjoyed everything about our stay, especially spending time with you over our delicious cooked breakfast! The beds were so comfortable, the bathroom was clean and spacious but most of all our hosts were delightfully friendly and helpful.
Great proximity to Devonport and also the ferry. Cliff made sure we were well looked after and comfortable.
A great way to start our holiday in Tassy – gracious hosts and a beautiful, comfortable home… and a delicious breakfast.
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.
Was a wonderful way to finish our holiday in Tassie. The home was very comfortable, clean, and relaxing and in a great location. Made to feel right at home by caring hosts. Would luv to stay again on next visit to Tassie.
Thanks for your very kind remarks and we hope to see you again……Clifford (and Fifi)
Clifford and Fi made us very welcome upon our arrival at Stony Rise. The B&B is in a great position and a short drive from the ferry terminal so is an ideal place to stay. Clifford gave us good advice on places to eat in the area especially as our stay coincided with a public holiday. There rooms were all comfortable clean and well appointed. We woukd definately recommend to fellow travellers!
A lovely house and gardens. Wonderful hosts and very welcoming. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.
Place was great hosts are amazing couldn’t do enough for you highly recommend very clean Peter
Majestic property and the very best of hosts who went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. Does not get any better.
Fifi and Cliff were a very warm couple with a lovely place and we enjoyed staying there with the family. The grounds were gorgeous and we loved bringing our dinner back and eating on the verandah. We had a lovely table and chairs in our room where we had a quiet read before bed. It was a very positive experience.
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.
We had a lovely stay in this beautiful accommodation. Our hosts very very welcoming and helpful. We would have no hesitation in booking another stay and will recommend to our friends and family if they are looking for a place to stay in Devonport.
Was a really great place to stay. Very homely folk. There home was beautifully decorated. The garden lovely and the vegie patch great. We recommend this BnB . They were so welcoming and helpful.
Lovely and comfortable, very convenient location, wonderful friendly hosts.
We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Cliff and Fifi were most welcoming and warm. The property is rural and very quiet but only 10 minutes from downtown Devonport. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it.
We have enjoyed our stay at Stony Rise B&B. Guests are recommended to try the home-made breakfast, which is generous and delicious.
Lovely, helpful people and a beautiful place to stay.
A spacious, spotlessly clean home to stay. Lovely and welcoming host and hostess.
Lovely place to stay. Friendly, helpful hosts. Beds were really comfy and being able to have a bath was amazing. The 10 minute drive to the spirit of Tassie, just off the freeway, was really convenient, and being 1.5 hours from cradle mountain was really handy. Thank you for having us.
Clifford and Fifi and just lovely! They are welcoming and accommodating to your needs in regards to checking in and looking around. The house is amazing and beautifully decorated. You will love it.
A very clean and comfortable place to stay with nice little touches like good quality toiletries and a variety of teas. We were only there one night before catching the ferry home, so a great spot for the early morning start.
Fifi and Cliff heartily welcomed our family of 5 into their home. 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.
Thank you for your very generous comments. We are very glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay. We trust that the rest of your holiday was just as enjoyable……best wishes for the new year…….Clifford & Fifi.
We stayed at Stony Rise Cottages during October 2017. Fifi, Cliff and Sorsha were very friendly and accommodating. Great with the kids too. The rooms were clean and comfy and they put on an excellent breakfast as well. We highly recommend staying at Stony Rise Cottages.
Hello Natalie and Paul,
Thank you so much for your very positive review. Fifi and I try to make the stay of our guests as comfortable and relaxing as possible….Best wishes….Clifford (and Fifi).
