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 place was greasy, dirty and stank and the kitchen area had grease splatters up the walls, there was a blow fly cemetery on the window sill in the lounge room and... More

Neat and cosy self-contained rooms. We were two couples travelling across Tassie when we booked here and stayed here on Dec 25th. The bathroom and kitchen were very clean. 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

We arrived at Heemskirk Motor Hotel after a long drive, in the middle of a camping holiday. Strahan was too full for our family of five so we rang through to the Heemskirk instead.
