Pelican Sands turned out to be much more than we expected. We stayed in the waterfront queen studio. As you walk in, the view through the large window is amazing. Because we arrived after hours (around 5:30 pm), we pretty much picked up the keys, got to our studio, and headed to the beach to look for/chase the Pelicans. There... More

Expected this to be a standard motel accommodation, but the revamp they have done is fabulous! The rooms has been tastefully renovated. The ability to walk to the beach to see all the birds was lovely and the restaurant was fantastic. We felt a little less homesick with the visits from Gidget the three legged cat. The rooms featured bold,... More

What a lovely review, thank you very much! Scamander is a real jewel of the East Coast of Tasmania. We are always pleased when our guests enjoy their stay with us. This is our 8th summer here and we have undertaken considerable refurbishments and it is still a "work in progress"; there is always something to do. It is rewarding... More

Great value accommodation, clean, comfortable, recently renovated and right on the Scamander estuary great for bird watching. Restaurant next door served a delicious dinner. Guy on check in very friendly but wasn't owner - we didn't meet them but only stayed one night. Some of the appliances (hair dryer, heaters) had seen better days. Beds very comfortable.

We visited Pelican Waters while touring the east coast of Tassie. Unfortunately we were only able to stay one day but what a great location, fantastic hosts and the restaurant food was great.You won't find a cleaner motel and the bed was very comfortable.

For a couple of cat lovers missing our pets at home, Pelican Sands catered to our every need by supplying a complimentary cat! On our arrival we were met by Gidget, the tabby/tortie 3-legged hostess, who escorted us to our room and made sure we were happy with our lodgings, which of course we were! Our studio room - which...

We stayed in the spa room for the long weekend and had a great stay. This self-contained room was neat, clean and modern and, once we had the heaters running for a bit, nice and warm. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was excellent. There was tea, coffee and milk for us when we arrived and the water... More

Thank you for your review. It sounds like you had a relaxing & wonderful time. The Spa Studio is proving popular - where else can you sit in a Spa & overlook the beautiful waterfront.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment in February 2014 with our son. The apartment was beautifully presented, spotless with lovely accessories and furnishings. They supplied a cot and all linen at no extra charge and were the most wonderful hosts for my husbands birthday. Amazing view lying in bed viewing the beach across the river. Thank you :)

We stayed here in a 2 bed apartment on our trip between Coles Bay and the Bay of Fires. The owners are lovely people, who obviously take pride in their motel. The 'apartment' was an excellent set up. 2 bedrooms; kitchen and a decent size bathroom. Parking was adjacent. Views of the water were from the kitchen and the main... More

Just the most wonderful place to stay and venture out from to see other attractions on the east coast of Tassie. Fabulous view of the lagoon and beach from our room. We had the 'spa room' which was great-totally functional although compact. Maureen and Graham are most likeable and friendly owners of Pelican Sands. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3-day stay. Highly...
