    I stayed here for a couple of nights in a private room before doing the Overland Track. It was a great location to do some last minute shopping and groceries (all in walking distance) and quiet so I could get a good sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would be staying here again in a couple of weeks if only they had some smaller girls’ rooms of say 3-6 beds available.

    This place is great if you are using it as a base to explore the rest of Tasmania. But its not got much atmosphere if you are looking to spend a little longer or meet people.
