Initially we were disappointed with the room as it seemed quite outdated, but the beds were very comfortable and there was a good hot shower. It was difficult to get accommodation in Strahan, so Zeehan was a good alternative.

Motel room and bed quite comfortable and clean. Meal at the Restaurant was adequate. The Museum in the town has a excellent history of the area with many pictures and equipment on display. We were heading to the Pieman River boat the next morning early so was a good stop off point.

My partner and I enjoyed our stay, Management was fantastic and helpful. The food was lovely and we chatted to the Manager for some time about the area and other locations and things to do in Tasmania whilst on our holiday. The room was clean although dated and could do with a makeover. Would definitely return for another stay when... More

My husband and I were both totally shocked by the attitude of the Manager (Tony) on our arrival. There was no welcoming smile or friendly hello as we would have expected. Just a query - 'name?' I made some comment regarding the area and there was just a grunt in reply. I mentioned that I used to work at the... More

I stayed here recently for a night with my family, and I was quite surprised with how clean the room was. Firstly, the couch and chairs were dirty, well it wasn't too dirty but you could tell that someone had been there. Secondly, the kitchen utensils were dirty. The knives and forks were dirty and looked like they were washed... More

There was nothing wrong with this hotel, but it was expensive for what it is, the management seemed used to dealing with hydro and mining contractors and seemed more interested in getting rid of me than trying to make me feel welcome. Decent dinner, but I couldn't bring myself to try the cooked breakfast despite paying for it.

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.
