“Don't believe everything you read...”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Had an ok stay here in August, but really disappointed by the advertised amenities that don't hold true for the winter months. The pool is FREEZING, not the promised 30 degrees, internet didn't work, restaurant closes early, reception closes early, bistro closes early, laundry closes early, so don't plan your day by the advertised times. Essentially by 8 pm there's nothing to do but stay in your room and watch tv, which was a cheap unit with only 11 channels so choices were limited. Movie channels were nice, but easily go on the fritz. With no one at reception we had to figure out how to fix it ourselves. (Change the channel for 5 seconds then change it back, and voila! You need to keep doing this for the remainder of the night tho...)
The beds were comfy, with pretty bedding and separate bed warmers for each side of the queen bed. Bathroom was nice, great heat lamp but slippery tiles in the shower.
Room was clean, location was great, you can hear penguins chattering across the highway, all in all an ok stay. But there were nicer places near the beachfront that were less expensive. Will try them next time.

A good, clean comfortable room. Good laundry facilities - pay for washing, drying free. We had one of the rear units - a bit cheaper & quiet, but misses the coastal view. Easy walking distance from the beach & village centre.

Room Tip: go for a front room if you want coastal views, a back room if you want quiet & slightly cheaper...

We stayed here for one night on our tour around Tasmania. Our room had been renovated and was clean and comfortable. It overlooked the outdoor swimming pool which we made use of. In the evening we had a pleasant meal at the seafront Bistro Bar Restaurant.

It makes a good stopping over point especially if you want to visit the nearby East Coast Natureworld.

I stayed here with my boyfriend and two other friends while we were hiking in the region. The room was clean and comfortable - what you would expect from a Best Western. What we didn't expect was to be laughed at by a front desk lady.

Us: Where could we get some breakfast nearby?
Her: Hahaha! Breakfast? After ten o'clock? Hahaha! Well you might want to try the bakery in town! Hahaha!

or

Us: Do you know when is high tide?
Her: Hahahaha! I have no idea! Hahaha! Maybe you could go to the ocean and look! Hahaha!

It was comical, although it never really feels good to be laughed at so much. Could I have my dignity back?

While there is a hotel attached, accommodation is in a motel. Everything worked and the food was more than adequate. What you would expect in a small country town.

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view rooms.
