Beautiful, just beautiful. I fell in love with my wife over 30 years ago and this has been a very special place to celebrate those 30 years. We celebrated our 20th in Tasmania and now our 30th. We will be back her to celebrate our 40th. Just love this island, it’s a reminder of our home of birth in Ireland. Thank you so much for this beautiful room.
We certainly didn’t arrive as we left! This calm, serene and peaceful setting has worked it’s magic and has set the scene for our 35th wedding anniversary week in Tasmania.
