“Unhygienic and poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Never again, so mouldy and dilapidated. Cleaners come in at their pleasure. Would not recommend to my worst enemies. Although it caters to the miners and everyone usually uses them just to sleep, we are still paying good money and should not be given a dump to stay in. More so that other than being such an isolating, lonely, constantly raining place, this accommodation adds to the depressing picture of Rosbery.

Hi Bessy D, i am unsure as to where you stayed as your name does not appear on our guest list anywhere. However - none of our rooms are mouldy - but as we are in the middle of a rain forest and it does constantly rain here and as a result the atmosphere does have a damp feel about it.
It would be much more helpful to your self and to others if you spoke to the management first about your complaints BEFORE going public with an unfounded criticism.

This is cheap accommodation and seems to cater mostly for single workers at the nearby mine, At 6an they all get up and go to work.
It took me back to my youth of staying in similar accommodation.
It will not be for everyone but it is cheap and it will be an experience of an accommodation style that I would imagine is dissapperaing fairly fast.
Hearty food.
I will stay there again
I have rated it vey good not becasue it is five star but because it is very good for what it is.

Stayed November 2010, traveled on business

HI MAL Tasmania,
THank you for your response - YES we are "a Little different" - we are an authentic original miners accommodation built by Electrolytic Zinc company in the 1950's and reflect the accommodation style of that era - as we say We are NOT a 5 star resort but ALL our beds are comfortable and our Home-style restaurant meals are hearty!
If you want a modern accommodation facility then that is not us - if you want to experience life as it was for the workers of the past and have a hearty meal for your efforts - then we are definitely your destination of choice! In saying that we do have updated housing especially some of our 3 bedroom buses and our 4 bedroom house.
