A bit quirkyPosted Mar 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is an old country house decorated by someone who loved furnishing it with oddities. You could find something interesting on every square foot of wall. The furniture was an interesting eclectic mixture. The grounds were lovely. Dinner and breakfast were excellent. It's a place you won't forget.

The highlight of my tazzy tourPosted Feb 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is a family run hotel but it is not quite a hotel and not quite a BNB. Here you will have a room with a lock on it, but it feels more as if you are a guest of the family. I realize all reviews are personal and not everyone will like what I like, but I loved this place. I could have stayed for months, and the other guests I met said the same. Its a beautiful old house where they make their own wine and the bread is all homemade and the dinners are incredible. Its quirky, and its creaky, and it's just perfect. If you are looking for a high-class modern hotel with everything spotless and perfect, look elsewhere. But if you want the best sleep of your life and to feel home while away, this is a place that you will not forget.

A great place in the areaPosted Dec 30, 2012
A great place to stay, the Hawley Bay is just outside the Hawley House, and the house staff are very nice and helpful.

Magical placePosted Mar 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
We loved this place. It is a world of dicovery within its self! Wish we had more time to stay. The meal we had was one of the best,in the three and half weeks we were in tassie.It was so relaxed and the host and hostess were charming,friendly and very helpful. It was great also to meet their dogs and they have horses as well.Next time we will stay at least a weak as the beach and gardens were magical.Definatley one of our favorite places we stayed.

A great walk back in time stay w/all the mod-consPosted Mar 1, 2012
Pros: The closenss to the beach and the are well decorated rooms
Cons: the receptionist
The old homestead is peaceful and beautiful with a view of the ocean from most rooms. Rooms are decorated with antiques and well thought out art pieces. The rooms are very comfortable and offer all the comforts one would expect from a more up-market accomodation. There are ponds, a vinyard and walks on the beach all available to enjoy. It is only 23 minutes from the Spirit of Tassie departure point in Devonport and the management supplied us with a lovely tray of breakfast items to have in our room as we needed to vacate before normal dining area breakfast is served to catch the ferry. The receptionist might of had a bad day as she was pretty abrupt.

Faded gloryPosted Feb 24, 2012
Great location and great potential, but they seem to be struggling. Cleanliness and maintenance need to be improved and the garden needs a lot of work.

Hawley House - Lakes & WineryPosted Jan 21, 2012
Pros: Lakes and garden
Cons: Rooms are a bit tired but that adds character
Hawley Hoause is a quaint hotel in a historical house/estate with magificient gardens and lakes. We arrived at 7.00pm and left early the next morning to catch the Spirit of Tasmania to Melbourne. The brother and sister managing Hawley House were very helpful and agreed to accept us as a very late booking for dinner on Boxing Day. Good meal and great company.Hawley House also has it owns winery and we can recommend their 2003 Pinot Noir.

Very DisappointedPosted Apr 28, 2011
A very expensive hotel for the quality of the room and service given. Unfortunately, we found many faults with this hotel: their was no working internet connection, the tap in the bathroom dripped continuously, and a light bulb was not working in one of the lights. The shower pressure was grossly inadequate and I decided to leave washing my hair until our next stop because the water from the shower head was so minimal. The furniture and mirrors in the room were layed in dust, the bed linen was old and not of usual hotel standard. We booked a balcony room with sea view which was more of a "glimpse" than a view and the balcony was shared with 3 other units, offering dirty plastic chairs to sit on. On our first day, the room was not serviced until 3pm and then only the towels were changed, the bed was left unmade and the toiletries and tea/coffee were not replenished. The worst thing for me however, were the chipped mugs in the room. The entire hotel had a shabby, rundown appearance and was generally unkempt, even the flowers in the vases in the dining room and our own room were dead. We were very happy to leave the hotel and move onto others on our trip around North and West Tasmania, all of which were cheaper and of a far higher standard of service and cleanliness than The Hawley Beach Hotel.

Hawley House, historic home, Hawley Beach, N. Tas.Posted Mar 24, 2011 on Hotels.com
A wonderful experience as a guest in a historic family home full of interest and treasures, with a structured garden full of vistas and surprises, and wildlife, including even an old chapel, in a fabulous seaside location with an easy coastal walk and great scenery. Our hosts were welcoming, and breakfast included home-baked bread, and eggs, honey, raspberry jam, etc. from the property. Freedom to wander in the house and garden was appreciated. Bathroom was up-to-date with separate bath and shower. View from our upstairs room was magnificent. Not for those expecting a hotel with all mod cons and impersonal service, but highly recommended for those who appreciate heritage, and the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful old family home, fantastic garden, and great location.
