Walton House was built in the first decade of the twentieth century and was transformed into Bed and Breakfast accommodation in 2005 after renovations and additions to the original house.
We have created a luxurious environment at an affordable price with great attention to detail, to ensure that each guest has every need met to ensure his/her comfort. Whether it be a holiday stay or a special occasion guests are treated to luxury linen and towels, homemade treats, complimentary port and chocolates and a mini bar. Each room has heating and cooling, comfortable lounge chairs and tea and coffee making facilities. With prior communication we provide wine and cheese platters, gift vouchers and restaurant bookings for those special occasions. We can also liaise with local operators, take tour bookings and promote local attractions and activities.
Breakfast is served in the guest dining room at an agreed time between 7 and 9am. Guests enjoy cereals, homemade bread and muffins, croissants, yoghurt, freshly cut local fruit as well as seasonal fruit from our own trees. A delicious cooked breakfast is available at a small extra cost if preferred. Guests enjoy the social aspect at the breakfast table but can also enjoy the privacy of their rooms – being dutiful without being intrusive is a delicate balance and one that we are careful to manage.
After breakfast we enjoy highlighting the many wonderful places to visit in Southern Tasmania by marking places on a touring map and telling our guests a little about each place. We like to ask what they enjoy doing and seeing so we can tailor their day to suit. There is nothing better than returning to Walton House B&B after a long day exploring the area and either lounging in front of the fire with a glass of wine or port or retreating to a warm room to watch a movie from our DVD selection or exchange a book from our book swap. Guests are welcome to use the dining facilities for dinner – there is a microwave and outdoor barbecue for use.
For guests who prefer a longer stay we also offer a laundry service at a very reasonable price. Walton House B&B is a home away from home and one which guests remember fondly and often return.
