We stayed for a couple nights in August.
We initially booked a Hilltop Suite (i think this was the room type) which sounded nice and was a good rate. When we arrived the room was just average - very dated and just not overly appealing at all even for the price.
We upgraded to one of the cottages in the main street. The location was great but again the room was not that flash. Don't get me wrong it was okay and we enjoyed the spa but for the $160 off we paid during winter it was easily the least value we had at any accom in Tasmania.
This property would have been great 15 odd years ago but it is just tired now and in huge need of a total refresh.
During winter a lot of eateries were closed. The staff - which were by the way very friendly - only directed us to the two owned by the company (the pub and seafood place) and didn't even mention that anything else was open. Whilst i completely understand that they want to direct people to their eatieries i just think they should at least make us aware of other dining options in the town.
The second night we ate at Risby Cove which was fantastic and i would recommend. Perhaps next time we will stay there instead.
Having said all this, we did the Pure Tasmania World Heritage Cruise (owned by the same group) which was absolutely fantastic and one of the must do things in Tassie.
