Zeehan is the town to stay only as a place to bed down on a road trip! The hotel room itself was very basic for $125. In the middle of no where. Bistro didn't open until 6pm with no room service for dinner. At this time of the year with hungry travellers opening at 5pm would have been good. Pros,...

After a long day's drive from Launceston to Arthur River and then via Hellyer Gorge to Zeehan this was a welcome sight. The room was fine, well presented and clean. Only problem was that wifi, while thankfully free, was only available in reception and the bistro. Fortunately being in a room close to the bistro, I only had to step...

Asked for our credit card number when we booked even though we intended to pay via eftpos. After leaving having paid in full, they recharged us using our credit card number. How dodgy can you get? This place was the only low point in our 2 weeks' holiday in Tasmania

We had one night at the hotel . The managers were very friendly and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The motel style accomodation we stayed in was clean and tidy. Dinner was very nice as was the breakfast.

Drove from Tasman Peninsula in one day as had made a phone booking (including credit card given) but when we arrived, the booking had not been recorded so we had to drive to Burnie (closest place with available accommodation that night). The Manager was helpful in trying to source alternate accommodation but should not have happened in the first place....

We arrived in Zeehan after a long days travel. There was a group of us and we were all made to feel welcome. Our rooms were all upstairs as a bus group had taken all of the downstairs rooms. The room we had was very spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. It was a cold night but...

Stayed over night at the this great hotel. Had a great meal in the Bistro. Had a great sleep in a very comfy bed. Had a great shower in the morning. Recommend this hotel. Not sure what some of the other travelers are talking about. Do you really need WIFI every where you go? Get over it. (Alan)

Dear BroomeStormz, I am very disappointed to read your poor review of stay at Heemskirk Motor Hotel. We apologise that we were unable to serve you more drinks while you were drinking in our bar. The law states we are unable to serve guests that are visibly intoxicated, so we suggested water, coffee or a meal. After this this you...

Fantastic stay, our accomodation in Strahan had double booked, this place was fantastic. Great last minute booking, bistro was fantastic, ice cold beer and wine and one of the friendliest places we have stayed at in Tasmania. Would happily stay here again.

After a wonderful experience in Strahan, we arrived in Zeehan for an overnight stay with a big gasp! Do towns like this really exist? There should be a sign at the T junction coming in to town saying 'This town is not equipped for tourists, keep driving'. The motel is very basic and old. Certainly not worth $140 per night.

Thank Julie B
