“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

Booked, not expecting much for $200 for the night. WOW....my mistake. We had a 2 bedroom (+2 bathroom cabin) lakeside cabin which was sensational. Kitchen and lounge facilities which we did not need as the dining facilities were great. We arrived to pouring rain and propped in our cabin for the afternoon, then went to dinner early. The only downside was that we woke to no water as there was a burst main during the night. We had to be on the road reasonably early but were delayed, hoping the water would come back on. Needed a shower but soldiered on without. It did delay out trip somewhat, but we got a free breakfast in compensation.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms require a walk to the Restaurant/Sports Bar. The room itself was great, but take a...

After the daily grind of work we were in need of a weekend away just the two of us so after a quick internet search we diecided that Tall Timbers Smithton was the choice .
We had heard good things about this establishment from other people and friends that had stayed here which made the choice easy and after a very wet drive out to smithton ( about 1 1/2 hours ) we had arrived .
Easy to find as the road signs were all clearly marked and after checking in which was easily done without any fuss we were shown where our unit on the lake was , although it was a bit of a maze to drive around we eventualy found the right one and it was every thing that we had expected and more , the unit was very large and offered all the mod cons that you would expect from a 5 star withan out standing view over the small man made lake via a private balcony ( very nice ) and a huge bathroom , after settling in we made our way over to the restuarant for tea and were pleasantly supprized by the size and design from the vaulted ceilings to the way everything was done in timber ( Very Impressive ) .
The food was exellent and severed in a very timely manner although breakfast was a bit of a dissapointment with the options only being fairly limited .
All in all Tall Timbers represents a great place for a weekend escape or that short getaway and is centrally located to take advantage of the local attractions at a very good price .

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the lake

Stayed here with a group for one night. Set in beautiful surroundings. Rooms are little cabins which were very large and clean. We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and I can't speak highly enough of the staff. There were 2 large groups there the same night and all our meals were served in record time, perfectly cooked and presented. All of the staff were courteous and helpful with any queries, even when the wrong meal was delivered to one of my table. It was quickly replaced with the right food. It was so quiet at night, I slept like a log. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again if I am in the area.

Certainly a surprise given the size of the township. Facilities are good and the pool is excellent. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and comfortable although the night we stayed was very warm and there was no air-conditioning - however given that this warm night was the exception in this part of Tasmania it was understandable and tolerable. The in-house pizza's were yummy and an on-site bottle shop also very handy. Generally a great little motel in a rather remote part of Tasmania. We booked in Wotif and had to be considered excellent value for monet

Room Tip: Pick one away from the lake as the birds were very noisy!

Standard room clean and tidy after you beat through the flies in the room.

Internet access was sloooow even through you pay a premium price by the hour.
Unlimited access to the internet is very cheap now. Access should be included in the rates. They should get with the programme..

Room Tip: None really alll the rooms were the same. Good full breakfast

I stayed here recently for business purposes. To be honest being a country town that whilst services a big area, it is all quite remote so there are not many options. My room was a standard type of hotel room, clean, comfortable and whilst a bit outdated, was good value for money. The main building which houses dining, gaming, bar etc is lovely and I could see how this would be appealing for families. It also houses a lovely pool which I didnt use but it looked very nice. I do think free WiFi should be included as the hourly rates were very costly. I would stay again for business purposes but may prefer to stay a little further out of the town in a B&B for leisure time or travelling with my hubby.

Room Tip: There really is many to choose from, the spa rooms would be lovely and the rooms that overlooked the...

We stayed at the Tall Timbers recently for one night. The facilities were pretty much what you would expect from this standard of accommodation. Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are bungalow style and include tea and instant coffee making facilities. WiFi is not free (which I think it should be) but this tends to be standard in Tasmania.

We tried the bistro which had reasonable, but not great, food with generous portions. There is a pool and barbecue facilities and the grounds have lots of trees and gardens.
