We've past this seemingly older style Hotel/Motel on a number of occasions when visiting Tasmania but seldom stop. Luckily on our last occasion we chose to look that little bit closer.
It soon became apparent that changes were being made. The frontage looked a bit better, new air conditioning units appeared in view, electrical wiring protruded from the eves. 'Dam' we'd better take a closer look AND to our surprise the bar areas are completely renovated and stylish, the menu indicated that the Chef was a thinker! with prices that no-one could complain about.
It was decided that we look at the accommodation. First impression - not good - the outside appearance needs attention but again we had received verbal assurance that the interior was renovated. Inside we found a totally renovated room, everything but the walls has been replaced, painted, new everything and more.
The staff in the hotel were just great. They know how to talk, laugh, joke and be efficient. Prices are good and by the number of locals eating the evening we dined there, they realise what a good deal this place is!
Every positive comment previously made, we agree with!
It's obvious that ownership/management is undergoing upgrades as finance permits.
Even if you don't wish to stay over or have made other arrangements stop by and see what imagination and professional approach can make.
My only regret is that I did not get the name of the dark headed lady who was referred to as 'the boss' within the dinning area. She was wonderful and capable of making everyone in attendance feel as though they belong there, while operating and managing other younger members of staff.
