Host Information

9.8
Host review score

Penghana is a Heritage listed property built in 1898. It was originally owned by the Mt Lyell Mining and Railway Company and was home to 11 General Managers up until 1994, when its ownership was transferred to the National Trust. The house has a rich history and is a fine example of yesteryear grandeur including ornate fireplaces, lead light entrance, magnificent blackwood staircase, attic and spacious rooms. Penghana has operated as a B&B business since mid '90's with current owners of the business (Steve and Karen) in residence since 2015. Today Penghana B&B is well known for spoiling guests and offering a memorable B&B experience with silver service.
Steve and Karen moved to Tasmania to purchase the Penghana B&B business back in December 2015. Under their stewardship they have brought new life to the house updating many facilities and decor as well as adding creature comforts and little extra touches for their guests. When you stay at Penghana you will enjoy silver service, homemade fruitcake, local plunger coffee and find hosts who will not just give you a key on arrival but give you a true welcome, show you around the house and the facilities available. If you need a dinner reservation, assistance with booking a tour experience, some laundry done, a little local knowledge on what to see/do on the next leg of your trip, you'll find the team at Penghana obliging.
