A great place to stay, only a few minutes off the main road. We travelled from Wynyard via the beautiful Hellyer Gorge but other routes are from Burnie, Cradle Mountain and Rosebery. We stopped off and enjoyed our stay. Plenty of history here much of it shown on the walls of this hotel. It was a joy to meet the hosts who greeted us so warmly. Our rooms had been recently refurbished, one of which had a pleasant outlook over the main waterfall of the town. Thank you so much, from Keith & Judy xx

Had a pit stop while touring the Tarkine at this old hotel, full of history, funny stories, local characters, photos, history, and wall displays - including the largest fresh water crayfish we have ever seen. The beer was cold, the view of Waratah Falls through the window magnificent, and the service efficient, witty, and hospitable. It's always good to get the "feel" of a place through its local and the Bischoff doesn't disappoint.

Stayed one night and really impressed. We had a deluxe room and it was overlooking the town waterfall just beautiful. Room was spotless and seemed to be recently renovated. Tea and coffee, milk and biscuits provided. Lovely bed linen and towels. Toiletries and hair dryer also provided. Had dinner that night and husband impressed with the Friday night pizza and chicken wing night. But also full menu available.. Wi fi available. Staff friendly. COVID safe restrictions adhered to. Waratah is a pretty town with a couple of museums and lovely to walk around the lake and the waterfall in the middle of town. The hotel did offer to provide a continental breakfast for a small cost but we went next door to a little coffee shop called Mushroom Cafe. The hotel is a great place to stay if exploring the west coast as it is nestled between Cradle Mountain and Corinna. Nice to be able to support a more local community.

A hidden gem very much off the beaten track; so worth the 45 min drive from Burnie. The owner and staff are genuinely interested in you having a great stay. We had the lovely downstairs spa suite - plenty of room and the bathroom was recently renovated and spotless. View of the waterfall, cosy and warm. And if you can, stay Friday night when they do pizza, most generous toppings I’ve seen anywhere and absolutely delicious. EV owners are well looked after with Tesla and Type 2 charging on the house. Planning our next trip there already.
