My husband and I stayed here on our travels through Tassie and found it to be very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was superb with homemade bread and black currant jam. We would highly recommend this B&B

Explorers Lodge was a happy surprise. We spent 3 nights and the service of Liz and Nigel is outstanding. They take the time to ensure each guest's needs are catered for. Our room was small but quiet, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was beautiful - everything is local and fresh. Would highly recommend a stay here.

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.

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.
