Beautiful scenery. Comfortable rooms. The bathroom layout was a little tricky with an open shower and glass door leaving little privacy. Food enjoyable but limited. Menu known ahead of time or given a choice of 3 mains would be ideal.

Every time I looked up the mountains had changed. Waking up surrounded by water was the most tranquil and refreshing experience. Add yummy food, new friends and staff that would bend over backwards to help, what's not to like!

Do not be fooled by the glamour shot of the pump house on the jetty as that is the only glamour you get, everything else is average. We did enjoy the delicious and generous picnic lunch served with hot crusty bread each day but the rest was what you would get at a basic RSL. Spending your precious time with strangers for dinner and breakfast is not for everyone so beware as you have no option and eating times are very regulated.

Dear kittym102021, Thank you for taking the time to leave a TripAdvisor Review. We’re really pleased you enjoyed the all-inclusive larder and our hot sourdough bread. We’re sorry to hear that you weren’t aware of our communal dining experience, this is something very unique to the Pumphouse Point experience and something our guests find really special. While it may not be for everyone, we do make this very clear on our website and in pre-stay emails to ensure our guests are all comfortable with this part of the experience. We like to make everyone here feel like guests into our home, so naturally, there is a set time everyone is welcomed for drinks and for dinner that we’ve found suits our guests best. Glitz and glamour is certainly not what we strive for at Pumphouse Point; there’s nowhere we elude to being 5 star or luxury. We aim to offer a unique retreat in stunning industrial heritage buildings, immersed in world heritage wilderness, with friendly and authentic service, something that can’t be replicated anywhere else in the world. However we’ve gone through your feedback in detail as a team, as we're committed to continual improvement, and we hope that you choose to return one day and have a better experience here in the wilderness. Regards, The Pumphouse Point Team

This was our fourth visit to Pumphouse Point and it gets better and better each time we stay! The team do a terrific job and you can be as active or relaxed as you choose. The dining is worthy of a feast so remember to wear your stretchy clothes. Enjoy the best of Tasmanian wine, spirits and gourmet delights. It's a magical and memorable holiday experience.

Pumphouse Point is the most incredible place we have ever visited. The staff are incredibly friendly and it was so nice to share the experience with other guests during pre dinner drinks and dinner. The view is stunning! It honestly feels like you are somewhere in the Swiss Alps! We will definitely be coming back.

An absolute must stay location. Nestled in the surrounding mountains of Tassie’s Lake St Clair National Park, Pumphouse Point exceeded our already high expectations. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with additional wood fired communal lounge areas the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink while taking in the breath-taking views.

Our first breakaway since lockdown and boy what a relaxation treat! Gorgeous landscapes, excellent service and pure personal indulgence. Loved meeting other people in the communal areas and sitting in quiet spaces to let the afternoons just happen.
