Trying too hard with the dining, they don't cater for bogans like me but the rooms are nice, the building is beautiful. Great if you just want to bum around and take in the scenery.

Very enjoyable visit. Beautiful room with lots of Tassie food and wines/beers in your own larder and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the company of some of our tourists at a shared evening meal which was enjoyed by all. This place should be on everyones bucket list… the most relaxing place, yet many walks if this is what you are looking for. Loved our two night stay

Spectacular accommodation, mediocre dining experience. Room and views were perfect, however poor food quality and communal dining were a big let down.

Stunning location and I really loved the design features and detail. We stayed in one of the top rooms of the pump house which was lovely however was also quite warm and stuffy due to the warm weather and lack of ventilation. Not many vegetarian options in the larder in the room for my partner though the fresh bread and communal dining experience + excellent wine was great. I think if I went again in would be in the cooler months.

The Pumphouse is in an incredibly beautiful location and is well furnished with some beautiful rooms. It is quiet as quiet can be, has great log fires and some lovely local wines and spirits. I'm not giving it a 5 as at times ghe service could be a little lacking: I gof ghe impression that the staff member who checked us in wanted to be somewhere else as we arrived late, and the team in the dining room could have been more helpful at times. That said, I do recommend it.

UPDATE: 29/10/2017 ================= Since posting the original review below (rated initially as 1-star), I have been contacted by CEO Simon Currant who has taken the time to explain their position in greater detail and to offer a voucher to the full value of our accommodation in recognition of the mishandling of the situation. This is a very positive outcome and this simple gesture has repaired a total loss of faith in the brand. Since we are yet to experience the accommodation first-hand, a rating is not possible. Once we have stayed at PP I will update this review again and hope that the 3-stars becomes five! TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN! ======================== This is not a review of the accommodation because we were prevented from staying there. It is however a cautionary tale to would-be travellers contemplating making the trip to this remote part of Tasmania in winter or spring when conditions are treacherous. BE WARNED — the hotel has a 'snow policy' which they will enforce without regard to your travel safety. Such was our experience. We got caught in heavy snow en route to Strahan where we were booked for 2 nights before stopping for 1 night at PP and then continuing to Hobart. We were 80km into a 180km drive from Burnie to Strahan in heavy snow when we encountered a multi-vehicle pile-up which blocked the road. Not being in a 4WD we made the decision to turn back. The State Emergency Service closed the road behind us.

Beautiful. Amazing. The hotel is bucket list stuff. Very expensive but it's a nice treat for a special weekend away.

Absolutely amazing! Beyond the location, which is as the photos show, just breathtaking. The staff we're lovely, the rooms we're luxury and the group dinner and honesty bar are such nice touches. It was really like waking up in a dream.

An amazing place to stay. Definitely one for the bucket list for locals and visitors from elsewhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay. The surroundings, rooms, lounge areas, food and drinks are first class. Love the concept of sharing your meal with fellow travelers. The small things have not been overlooked (such as quality toiletries and extra large towels) The staff are welcoming and helpful. The tourists we spoke to were all equally as impressed. Fabulous to see first class accommodation available in one of Tassies most beautiful locations.

I really wanted to visit this amazing place and maybe have a beer. Access is for guests only. So if you're planning a visit you better book a room. :)

Lounges where you can be toasty and warm. Library from which to read or sit in you room if the weather is inclement. Otherwise get out and walk. Mountain bikes are also available for use and some row boats.

Amazing spot! Unreal wilderness experience. Renee and Josh are super friendly. I think everything you need is there. Including platypuses, kangaroos, birds and other outdoor excitement! One of a kind!

Creating a boutique mini-resort in a disused pump-house and associated infrastructure, a unique part of Tasmania's hydro-power electricity generation era (1930's-50's), standing both in the wilderness whilst looking across a lake to the wilderness, was a stroke of creativity, resourcefulness and visionary. Engaging the right designers — sympathetic to the concept of retaining the 20th century, functional, industrial look-and-feel externally while making the internal fit-out practical yet luxurious — was probably more good management and good taste than good luck; it works so well. (This is, after all, the 'era of authenticity'. ) The hospitality arrangements — because the staff have been as carefully selected as all the other design elements — are clever, generous, professional and sensible. It was too wet and bleak* during our stay to do much walking, bike-riding or boating, but the magnificent log fires and convivial company of our fellow-vacationers were probably more enjoyable and interesting anyway. (*To be fair, the near mid-Winter sleet was intermittent — meaning we could walk the lake shoreline, while watching out for the next rain-squall — and when the rain-cloud lifted, we had freshly-snow-covered mountains to exhilarate us. ) All the while, we were surrounded by white-horses breaking on a dark, choppy lake; in fact, our luxurious accommodation was 250meters out in the middle of the lake. An exhilarating, refreshing and memorable stay.
