Loved it. Thank you for making part of our honeymoon special. Awesome accommodation, great food and wonderful staff. Add in the location, views and wildlife and it all comes together beautifully. Cheers

This was our honeymoon destination and it was absolutely magical. Incredible setting with remarkable views. Great walks and cycle routes all around you. Fantastic set up too. The staff were amazing and always available to help. Thank you team for making our honeymoom special.

Pumphouse Point was a wonderful getaway with excellent service from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. The personal touch was appreciated as well as the amenities on offer. The only downside was our visit was for only one night. Highly recommended.

Unique accommodation set in such a scenic backdrop. You are in one with the wilderness but with the great comforts of all the amenities. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will come back. There is not much to be said about the food (dinner) but it gives you a chance to socialise with other guests. I love the idea of the Larder and Honesty Bar. Great selection of wines and spirits. Lovely staff and the best freshly baked sourdough I've had.

Pumphouse Point was one of the best places we've stayed in Australia. The rooms are done very well and in keeping with the Pumphouse history. Staying in the Pumphouse on the end of the pier was very unique and recommended over the shorehouse. The communal lounge areas by the fire and the honesty bar make you feel like the place is your very own living room overlooking Lake St Clair. The communal dining provides a great opportunity to meet people from all different parts of the world. The food was plentiful and tasty. We took the helicopter arrival option from Hobart which provided a stunning view over Lake St Clair on arrival. The hotel arranges a car for you to drive back if you don't want to go both ways by helicopter. Plenty of walks can be had nearby, unless of course you've just completed the Overland Track!

Such an amazing one of kind place to stay. I treated my parents for their wedding anniversary and I’ll remember it for the rest of my life. The surrounding wildlife and walks were great, free rowing boats and bikes. Each room had fridges and bars, chock full of local food and drinks. A real foodies delight. Loved the social communal dining experience too, really brought the place together. Lovely friendly staff too, made our stay the absolute best. Oh and the pump house… what a place, just look at the photos

Words cannot describe Pumphouse Point. The trek through the Tassie wilderness alone is spectacular, but the care and attention that has gone into this retreat is far and away the best I have experienced in Australia. We stayed as part of a wedding party that had full access and booking of the venue, and with only 18 rooms the event was intimate and extremely special. The staff were incredible and so helpful, I could not recommend Pumphouse Point any higher if you're goal is an amazing trip in the fresh wilderness of Tasmania.

Outstanding, exceptional amazing place to stay. Top class welcome, pick up from car driven to hotel. Very friendly staff, amazing food, breath taking gorgeous views, really top class high end living it up life for a few days. Can't say anything negative about our experience at all, was brilliant and will definitely be back, possibly the best place I've stayed at yet.

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.

Irene W.



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

Guillaume M.



Great location, great service, great food! We loved our time there and especially all the fresh made bread!

Silke P.



Do yourself a favour and visit this place. It is magical.

Luke M.



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

Jack J.



Most wonderful place. One of the best places I have stayed at in over 40 years of traveling. Jack Jennings

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.

Holly G.



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.

Keira S.



Nothing short of breath taking! No small detail was missed. Make sure you get the complementary freshly baked sourdough, yummmm! Thank you to the whole team for making our 1st wedding anniversary so special for us

Matt T.



The most picturesque hotel in Tasmania. Absolutely stunning.

Bryce T.



Second time visiting this wonderful place, and it still took my breath away when we arrived. Great service, and a truely unique experience! A 'must do' if you live in or are visiting Tasmania.

Julie W.



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.

Mark S.



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.

Mark S.



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.
