This hotel has character plus, and the new owners can see the potential. It is warm, cheap, clean, has a great kitchen/common room for guests, and is an excellent jumping-off point for Corinna or the Western Explorer. Waratah itself has a pretty interesting history - good museums. Internet a bit wobbly when I stayed there, but the owners are tackling...

A new family have bought this hotel and they are very excited about it. They couldn't do enough for us during our stay, cooking a special vegetarian meal and even feeding us a delicious dinner when the hotel wasn't opened for meals. The decor hasn't changed from the 60s, but that's part of its charm. It was very clean and...

New owners have rejuvenated this pub literally overnight! Very friendly knowledgeable, competent bar staff who coped brilliantly with a first night rush. If this is a sign of things to come, and word gets out, then they're going to be rushed off their feet! Food was very well prepared and the burger on offer will fill all but the biggest...

This Pub has just been taken over by new owners. Tonight was the first night they put on a light meal. It was alright but has a away to go. Buns on hamburgers needed to be a bit more toasted but I'm sure this will improve. The Pub was full of locals and travellers I look forward to seeing how...

It would pay the traveller to call the hotel first to see what facilities are available before booking. Don't pay the extra for the "waterfall view" as the view from the window will play hell with your neck vertebrae. Also be aware that the double room is a double bed pushed in to the corner of a single room. Consider...

Closed when I arrived, clear notice on the door of the number to call. Called the number and was welcomed in within the minute.Lovely hostess could not have been more helpful even offering to microwave my soup as she showed me the coffee room and bathroom and then my room. Looks as though the ladies facilities have been recently updated,...

We happened to be here the day the new owners took over, so can only go by our experience, and that we were well looked after. Owners were friendly and helpful, just a bit lost as we're finding there way. Friends ate here and said the meal was normal country pub standard.

The Bischoff Hotel is the only one in town and it is in fair order throughout.It displays a number of architecturally insensitive updates that have occurred since its construction at the turn of the century. We found our room to be small but quite clean as was the ensuite.I understand there is at least one room with a spa that...

We arrived in the afternoon at 4pm. The hotel was locked and nobody around. We rang a mobile phone number which was mentioned on the door. We waited for another 10 min in the cold and rain. Finally the lady arrived and gave us the key to our room. The log fire was only lighted around 6pm, and only one...

I have read through a few other reviews which all seem to have to same feel for the place that we had. We arrived, as a group of three couples, at approximately 5.00, to locked doors? The weather outside was freezing, which is exactly why we travel to Tasmania to feel the difference, but standing on front door for too...
