We checked into this place and found the room comfortable, sure, it needs a little updating, you can hear traffic noise and pub patrons, but for the price, you cannot complain about that. the beds allowed me to sleep very comfortably. As I was ill, management allowed us to check in early and provided a fan as it was unseasonably...

Tried to eat there 3 times over two weekends. Once, they were closed (lunchtime), next (Saturday dinner) would not take a reservation although many tables empty. Eventually on the Sunday night we got in. They were nearly empty and struggled to handle the numbers - no wonder they tried to keep the numbers down the night before!!! Food was just...

The unit was spacious and satisfactory. There was cutlery and crockery. The food and service at the bistro was good, but breakfast not available. There were two serious problems; Despite three approaches to the management I could not get the "free wi fi" to function on my modern laptop or my phone. To my amazement not a single ABC channel...

We called in for dinner one evening following the change of ownership and were pleased to see that there were improvements being made from what was a very poor hotel. We all had a meal and were pleased with the service and quality and quantity of the meals presented. There is still a way to go for Blue Waters but...

Very comfortable rooms. Bunks for family were great to keep space and have enough beds! Convenient location restaurant and bar. Beach made for a beauty walk both in evening and morning. Small park nearby. Would definitely go again.

We drove up to Orford from Primrose Sands, nice drive and we really like Orford. Nothing much there but the hotel is really great for lunch. In fact one of the best we have been too since being in Tasmania. The meals are reasonably priced and tasted great. The view is also very nice and the staff lovely. Definately returning.

The staff were great, they took the time to have a chat while we sat at the bar, yet were efficient when a few other patrons arrived. The rooms were great also, nice safe accomodation. The food was simply amazing. My Chicken Parma was that good, i had another the following day. My wife's seafood was reportedly some of the...
