THE PENGHANA DIFFERENCE
Penghana offers old world hospitality in a tranquil, elegant environment with 21st century comforts. To stay in this National Trust property is an experience in its own right.
Penghana is not a hotel with 24-hour reception. In fact, we don’t even have a reception desk. It is a private residence that is fully accredited as a hosted accommodation venue.
When you call Penghana you actually get to speak to the owners of the business. As we don’t want you to miss out on the iconic award-winning experiences, we happily share our knowledge of what to see and do and we can also make a booking for you.
We personally welcome you at the front door when you arrive. We settle you into your accommodation. We don’t leave a key in a box, and there’s no codes or hand-scribbled notes.
Penghana’s original upstairs VIP suite overlooks the township of Queenstown. It offers a bedroom with two queen beds, separate bathroom and toilet and private sitting room, which can be used to accommodate another person.
Whichever option you choose, you can be assured of a good night’s sleep in extremely comfortable beds. You’ll find creature comforts such as plunger coffee, homemade cake, bath robes and a complimentary chauffeur service to/from dinner. Guests staying in our ensuite rooms enjoy the ambience of our stately dining room when they come downstairs for their silver service home cooked breakfast.

SHARED GUEST FACILITIES
Two of our B&B suites have their own private sitting room spaces while the other two share a private upstairs lounge. All guests have access to the downstairs formal lounge, as well as the ballroom (provided it is not booked for a function). Here you can enjoy the pianola and our range of board games or enjoy a drink from our licensed wine bar which features Tasmanian wines, craft beers and even Penghana’s own house wines.
In the summer months, guests can enjoy the garden, the stunning views, and have a barbecue or picnic on the lawn.
Penghana has ample safe, free onsite parking and undercover space to safely accommodate motor bikes and bicycles.
We have added a secure storage and work area for mountain bikes.
There is a public charging station in the car park which services the carpark adjacent to the nearby Queenstown Station. At Penghana we have an outdoor power point available for overnight charging of guests’ electric cars.
Free high-speed Wi-Fi is available for guests throughout Penghana.
WHOLE OF VENUE HIRE FOR SPECIAL EVENTS
The layout of the house is perfect for friends or family groups, special events, small conferences, meetings, corporate retreats, exhibitions and ‘not quite eloping’ weddings, when you book for up to 12 adults with all the organisation done for you.
