We can’t offer you the moon and the stars at The Menai Hotel, or a gown and slippers. What we can promise you though is a comfortable, clean room with reliable hot water, free WiFi, Foxtel, LCD TV, microwave oven and a bedside alarm clock radio, all within easy reach of most things that brought you to this part of the world. Every room also provides a refrigerator, tea and coffee facilities, a private bathroom, heaters and electric blankets as well as a writing desk. Toasters, irons and hairdryers are available on request. Some rooms have satellite TV. Our rooms are perfects for the business traveller, for a getaway for two and also for families in need of somewhere to rest their heads while they make their way around our beautiful island. Ample free parking is provided in site. The Menai restaurant is open 6 nights a week (Monday – Saturday) for evening meals, commencing at 5:30PM. Guests enjoy discounted meals, with 50% off on Monday to Thursday, and 25% on other nights. Loi’z Bar is the ideal spot to enjoy a cold beverage and friendly service. It offers a dart board and 8-ball tables as well as a cosy wood heater fired up on those chilly evenings. Counter meals are available six nights a week. We are just a 10-minute walk from the middle of town, where you can visit The Burnie Arts and Function Centre, or an extra few minutes will take you to the waterfront boardwalk where you can watch the Penguins returning to their nests any evening around sunset. By car we are about: 5 minutes from Fern Glade Reserve 15 minutes from Emu Valley Rhododendron Gardens 20 minutes from Guide Falls Alpaca and Animal Park Cradle Mountain is about an hour and a half away, as is The Tarkine Wilderness region. A slightly shorter drive will take you to The Nut at Stanley. Brochures are available to help you plan your next tour and it may be worthwhile to have a chat with your host, Leigh Newman to pick up some of the finer points about the island home he knows so well.
