Looks good from the road, but thats about it, rooms were dated, dirty and poor lighting. Restuarant was overpriced, dark and dingy, but food was ok. Its within a good distance to Port Arthur, but nothing else really there, just this place in the middle of the bush. I wondered why this place had vancancies when everything else on the peninsular was booked out, now I know why.
Despite other reviews, we had good service, big main course, and being farmers we need big feeds. The garlic and cheese bread was delicious and desert was fantastic. A really creative atmosphere.
Stayed two nights in a motel room in Middle of August. The room was adequate for the nights we stayed. It was cold outside and had no problems with the heater in the room. The bed was comfortable and the room clean when we arrived. Its not a 5 star motel so did not expect to much.
Had dinner at the restaurant both nights. Have no complaints about the quality or quantity of the food served. The service was alright even considering they had 90 teenagers in for tea on the first night. The service did not change for the second night.
There was not many people staying at the motel at the time we were as it was low season. I have no complains about the place and would go back.
We had a fairly spacious room on the second floor of the motel with a nice view of the woods. Which was nice. But they were still standard issue rooms with no character and not feeling really very clean. There was barely any furniture in the room and the lighting was dismal. The heater was small, noisy and not very efficient. They said there was internet connection. but you had to walk outside in the courtyard to get passable reception. Even then these motel rooms were probably better than the rooms in the lodge, which was full of noisy teenagers when we were there. And yes, check your bill when you check out. We had booked the rooms on the phone a few days earlier and I strongly suspect they charged us more than the price they quoted.
Their dining room looked noisy and the menu unappetizing, so we decided to stay away. Which was lucky for us based on the experience of others. The only very good thing they did was to recommend to us the “Lucky Ducks” in Nubeena, several miles away. This place turned out to be a simple wayside cafe but with surprisingly good and imaginative food. The menu was limited but one dish we had was cold salmon, smoked quail, paté, a nicely tossed salad, and French bread
Stayed in one of the motel rooms and for the price it wasn't anything special. Bed a little uncomfortable, particularly for two nights.
If you can go else where for meals as there were not all that good. Service fairly shoddy and check your bill before you pay. If you want to buy anything from the bottle shop go early in the evening as it closes fairly early.
Plenty of other places to go for breakfast, a little coffee shop up the road or one of the B&Bs that has a cafe attached.
