We stayed at the Pumphouse and they recommended the pub for dinner. It was a pleasant surprise to find great food in a remote setting. Do your self a favour and order the Sri Lankan curry, amazing!!!!

It's old world and honest. Old fashion rooms but at a competitive price and attached to a great pub. If you want a place to escape, have a mid afternoon nanna nap then a great afternoon you have found it. In the heart of Tassie wilderness and a great find. It's good honest accommodation.

This is a great pub and place to eat. Beautiful rugged building with its timber columns reaching to the ceiling and stone open fire place. Meals are beautiful and scrumptious. Very filling. Glass of wine or a beer, no problems. Pool tables x2 and a place to entertain the kids. Staff are very friendly and on a cold night out...

We didn't stay at the hotel but ate there for two nights. Excellent menu and food, congratulations to the young chef. Service was also very good. A good wine list was on hand as well. Very convivial hosts who shared the history of the area. Would highly recommend.

We finished our overland track a day early and found ourselves staying at Derwent Bridge Hotel for a night. The owners were very kind and even gave us toothbrushes since we'd lost ours. The rooms were comfortable with an extremely efficient heater. What made our visit was the head chef. We were lucky to have a chance to chat with...

What an enjoyable stay at this hotel with fantastic food and company. Walked in not knowing what to expect and enjoyed the whole experience.

Really well appointed huts, that were recently modernised. As we were stopped in the park the stay costs included extra park pass for one day. Great well marked walks, although seasonal lack of platypus or echidna sightings were compensated for by shy wallaby and very up front pademelon. Almost wished we were doing the long distance walk. Did not manage...

The roads had been closed and were impassable due to heavy snow and a large number of tress across the roads. The team at The Derwent Bridge Hotel were accommodating and despite having no electricity and limited supplies they managed to provide rooms and food for the many other people stranded for the night. Well done to the team and...
