Truly a home away from home. Very comfortable accommodation with warm and friendly hosts. From the moment we arrived we were we were made to feel welcome by Liz and Nigel. The breakfast was excellent and set in a beautiful light filled room. This was by far the best accommodation we experienced in our eight days travelling throughout Tasmania.

We stayed only one night at the Explorers Lodge after a long 4 hr drive from the West Coast, the hosts were very welcoming, I msg ahead to say we were running late and would not arrive until 8pm but that was not a problem. The rooms were spacious enough slightly dated but clean and nicely presented, we stayed in... More

Liz and Nigel were very welcoming hosts. The rooms were spacious and well presented and the lodge and gardens were stunning. The breakfast was a treat with beautiful fresh baked bread with enough food to keep our 15yr old boy very happy. Great value for money. Wish we had had the time to stay longer.

We stayed at the Explorers Lodge in the self-contained 2 bedroom apartment. Very clean and comfy, and the hosts were quietly helpful, without being intrusive. They know nice places for walks. Fresh home baked bread was great! Would stay there again. Good value for money

Explorers lodge bed & breakfast has a lot of personality. Nigel and Liz,the owners, put a lot of heart into this establishment. They are very kind and friendly people and made a real effort to make our stay pleasant. Room was a bit small but clean and cosy.Also price-range was quite affordable.

We usually stay at resorts or hotels, but had a spare night on our way back to Hobart so booked into Explorers Lodge Bed & Breakfast. What a lovely find - and like other one night stayers, we too wished we had stayed longer there. We were made extremely welcome - our room was excellent, the breakfast next morning equally... More

Unfortunately we were only overnighters but this is a place worth staying longer at… just to be there and appreciate the ambience of the public rooms and garden. Our room was one of the smaller rooms but very comfortable and adequate with ensuite. There was a sense of living in a piece of history as it was the old manager's... More
