Good place to recharge with a drink and pub-style lunch. We enjoyed the muscles and steak sandwich. Short stroll down the road to the Glenorchy Lagoon Boardwalk.

We ate here for two nights and were happy with the results. The best dish was certainly the rack of lamb. The drinks prices were fair also.

This is a great place to eat in Glenorchy. The fish, rack of lamb and steak were brilliant and beautifully presented with an excellent reasonably priced wine list. Lovely ambience.

The food in this somewhat shabby hotel is outstanding. We ate there on two occasions and every dish was superb.

Room was like a disgusting students bedroom...the door caught on the scarred, stickered and dirty desk when you opened it, the floor was covered in dust and hair and there was even old food under the desk.

**The sheets were clean though thank goodness.

In order to check in we had to loiter at the bar which was bursting with locals who had to alert staff to our presence.
Staff member was kind and helpful but clearly stretched and we had to make our own way to find where we were staying. When we did work it out, our room wasn't the self contained affair we'd booked but a tiny room, squashed into a building with 3 or 4 other rooms where each rooms door literally blocked that of another's room! and onto a grubby, crowded small kitchen/diner.
Everything was so grubby we went straight to bed without even trying the toilet. In the morning some other folk burnt up a greasy breakfast which filled all the rooms with an acrid smell.

An unpleasant stay and not the accommodation advertised.

Backpackers is not advertised as a ''self contained affair""but is a cottage with rooms in it containing a kitchen, showers, toilets ,lounge area all under one roof.. As all rooms were full, the kitchen area and eating area was being used and would not be clean as it is in the morning. You also checked in before Back Packers was fully cleaned.
As checking in is not at the bar you were unfortunately at the wrong place and probably should have walked a few more steps to the restaurant/checkin area where check in is.
Yes, you would also have to make your way to the room unless you are disabled when we would assist. Signs clearly mark ''BackPackers Cottage'' which is well signed, as after all it is Backpackers and Porters are not provided.
As for the doors they meet fire regulations and obviously do not open on to each other or you would not get in.
Unfortunately we cannot recommend that customers refrain from making food smells when they are cooking as odourless food is not yet on the market.
Next time we suggest that you stay in a hotel
