The Bischoff Hotel is a unique Heritage Building located in the Historic tin mining town of Waratah Tasmania. We offer a range of accomodation to suit a variety of needs. Feel yourself stepping back in time with the eclectic mix of styles and eras on display. From 100 year old pressed tin ceilings, antique features, retros 80's carpet, and a collection of weird and wonderful relics, tribute to the many stories and memories contained within the walls. Within the township the Hotel is perfectly situated to capture the stunning views of Waratah's wild and natural beauty, overlooking the iconic waterfall which runs centrally through the town. Old world charm providing a relaxed, comfortable and inviting atmosphere. We are at the Gateway to Cradle Mountain National Park and the heart of the Tarkine Wilderness. All guests are welcome to take advantage of our downstairs bar and dining areas. We invite you to experience this authentic and unique Tasmanian Hotel!

Owner not tolerant of children. Meals are average. It’s just a pub, that has NO outdoor seating area. Better to go to the coffee shop next door. Very friendly staff with great coffee and a large variety of food.

It is unfortunate you were unsatisfied with your experience with us. Yes we are a Pub offering counter meals. We are unable to offer outdoor seating as it is a Heritage building and are restricted by its construction. We do appreciate feedback however would like to vouch that we are always tolerant of well behaved children in the company of a responsible adult. We agree the cafe does make fantastic coffee and has a good selection of cafe fare. The owners are lovely people and we are happy you were able to enjoy your time there.
