The Heemskirk is always clean. The staff are helpful and friendly. We were there for the Zeehan Gem and Mineral show and got to see the fireworks from our motel room - an added bonus. Always a pleasure to stay there.

the rooms are basic but clean, warm and comfortable. They offer a small TV, fridge and ironing facilities with clean and dry bathroom. Restaurant is great, faultless meal. Steak cooked to perfection and was a great cut of beef. Will stay here again!

The beds were fitted with electric blankets which we needed inspite of it being a summer month. The lounge had recliner sofas which was pretty great. Would stay here again. We... More
