We stayed her for two nights. Room is spacious but outdated. Bed was ok. Fridge a little dirty/old. The wifi was only in the restaurant/bar but even there it did not work. We went out to Felons for food as we did not really like the look and feel (sticky) of the restaurant. It is not much more then a... More

This is one of the few places to stay near Port Arthur. My accommodation was more like a housekeeping cottage without a kitchen. It was clean but basic with lino floors and a prefab shower. The main building is mock Tudor with a "ye old" dining room full of horse brasses. The food, however, was excellent. Dinner was delicious and... More

Other accommodations were booked and this was our only choice which turned out to be not so good. The room, while large and with a nice view of the lake, was not air conditioned and had only a fan stuck on the wall which was taped so that you could not adjust it. The door was not securely sealed and... More

Had an excellent deal and great room obscured by trees but nevertheless very nice lookout. Our room was very spacious with table and chairs together with sofa to relax. The kitchen was small and shared with the bathroom sink?? There is supposed to be free internet in the restaurant but we couldn’t connect at all. We ate in the restaurant... More

This is spacious accommodation in a handy location near the Port Arthur site which wont break the bank. And as it was only a place to rest our weary heads, it didn't matter that it was so dated it bordered on glum. The menu didn't entice though we did enjoy a few drinks at the friendly bar after dining elsewhere.

There is usually one positive you can find from a bad hotel but here there was none, this hotel was nothing short of awful. we traveled around Tasmania staying at many hotels during our ten day holiday and must say this was the worst hotel we stayed at, in fact its the worst hotel we have stayed at in many...

Accomodation was great with great views. Meal was nice and staff very friendly and accomodating! Value for $$. Bed was comfy and great utilisation of space. Dinner was a tad of a wait, but, they were busy so was happy enough. Excellent understanding of food allergies.

You can't miss this typical building on the way to port Arthur. The recommendations of the choices for my drinks could be better but maybe I did not make myself clear that I was not familiar with any of the Aussie drinks on offer. The food was allright. Sleep was excellent, cold, dark and quiet room with fresh air, enjoyed... More

This hotel is unique to the Peninsula both in style and substance. We stayed in a two bedroom cabin which although in need of a little upgrading was clean, comfortable and very well equipped if you wanted to be self contained. I highly recommend eating in the hotel which is an honest replica of an old English pub. The food... More

The outside was really cute & the view over the water was so nice. The staff were very friendly. The food was more quantity less quality. It was in a good location (near Port Arthur) and it had a bottleshop on site which came in handy! It was an ok stay.
