About Orana House
Orana House was originally built in 1909 as a holiday home for the Pearce Family. In the 1950s it became a boys’ home and orphanage and then in the 1980s Orana was turned into a heritage-listed Bed & Breakfast. Orana House has become a home away from home for travellers for over 20 years.
Located just up from the esplanade at Lindisfarne Bay, Orana House offers fine views of the Derwent River and the Tasman Bridge, with Mount Wellington and Hobart in the background.
There is an enticing selection of in-house rooms in a variety of configurations, all furnished in a manner sympathetic to the era. The favourite would be the Ronald Pearce spa suite with its golden-canopied bed, spa in the ensuite, separate entrance and azure walls. Other rooms have lovely river views. The guest lounge has deep leather couches in front of an open fireplace, a DVD library and access to the wide verandah that is a perfect spot to relax with a drink, or a muffin provided with afternoon tea. Walk in the garden, pop over the Hobart's many attractions or tour north to Richmond and beyond. Just enjoy the peace and history offered at Orana.
