This little gem of a place is superbly situated at the start of the Murchison Hwy to head off down the west coast. It was very comfortable, quiet and just perfect for a good night's sleep before you head off on the long trek south west. The staff were lovely and I would thoroughly recommend anyone to stay there.

We had continental breakfast each day, this was delivered to the room each evening so you could have it at a time convenient to yourself (fruit juice cereal & toast - toaster... More

stayed here on a short business trip to Tasmania. Wasn't quite what i expected from the reviews and photos I saw before booking. Its a little out of the way on the expensive side compared with others i looked at and if you are looking for something quiet it will suffice. Restaurant down stairs was convenient but a little on...

Great little place to stay, was clean, modern, freshly painted, bathroom was what we needed and the room was just comfortable. Perfect place to stay that is not expensive and is comfortable, we were there for four nights and enjoyed it. The restaurant 'The Jetty' is fantastic too! Was not expecting it to be such high quality but we enjoyed... More

A very pleasant stay for 2 nights while on business. Despite being somewhat dated, this motel shone because of top class customer service, clean & functional room, quiet & convenient location. Having a library of DVDs to loan was a great idea. Staff displayed good local knowledge & appropriately suggested options & ideas for local dining, tourist routes & attractions.... More

Had a lovely one night stay after coming off the ferry. Room was clean and comfortable AND the staff were super friendly. As we checked out the lady gave us some fantastic local knowledge to help us get the best out of our day.

The friendly and informative greeting at reception by proprietor Cindi Forsyth set the standard for my stay. My room was recently refurbished with everything I needed for an overnight stay.

Staff at reception were welcoming and friendly, the room had almost everything you could ask for. I found the bedding to be very comfortable. Breakfast was ample and very nice. Only issue (sorry) is no reverse cycle air conditioning which meant the room was very cold. It was a cold winter night but that is what we expect in Tasmania.... More

Our party of 40 spent two nights at the Lodge and we found it very good. The management were extremely helpful and ensured our stay was enjoyable. Would be quite happy to return on a future trip to Tasmania. Ideal central point for visiting Stanley, Cradle Mountain etc.
