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

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. Three legged cat... More

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

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

We were very pleasantly surprised with this little gem while travelling up the East Coast of Tasmania. Arrived unannounced and no booking to be greeted by the genial owner who proudly showed us one of her rooms with views to the mouth if the river at a very affordable price. Rooms were beautifully appointed we were more than impressed ,... More

Always ready to welcome a weary traveller! Thank you so much for your kind words. At the risk of being repetitive, we try to provide what we would like to find ourselves when travelling. Clean, cosy, friendly & nicely appointed accommodation. The bed must be comfy and you need a good shower & a very high proportion of our guests... 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...

Thank you soo much! I remember the lovely chat we had and discovered that our husbands where born on the same day, the same year and were about to both celebrate their birthdays.

Perfect is a high score, but for the value for money - well...very comfy bed, hot shower, comfy lounge, roomy unit, very friendly hosts, fabulous location - right on the edge of the lagoon at Scamander...a sand bank away from the ocean and white sand beach. And friendly 3 legged cat that accompanied me on sunset and sunrise photo excursions.... More

Hi Gaylene, Sorry it has taken so long to reply to your review & thank you for the beautiful photos you sent, including one of Gidget the 3 legged cat who manages to charm all of our guests.
