Accommodation categories

General information:

Because everybody has different comfort needs and available funds we offer the choice of different accommodation categories. Apart from the accommodation the tours are identical. We prefer small, privately owned and friendly places, against big sterile hotels. Every accommodation we use is different, in fact it is a cross-section of accommodation styles what’s available in Tasmania, like bed & breakfast houses, motels, apartments, cottages etc.
We have spend a lot of time and effort to find outstanding places in each category and will only send you to those where we would stay by ourselfs (and in many cases already have and loved it). Many of our guests have said they got a higher quality than they have booked.
If uncertain what accommodation category is most suitable for you, we advise you to book the better category in order to avoid possible disappointment. This is particularly true if you have not travelled in Australia before as in Australia the standard is in general lower than in Europe for instance.
Please note: The difference between the categories does vary depending on location. At some locations some categories may not be available. Some categories may not be offered on curtain tours. Depending on the category booked, you may have to prepare your breakfast by yourself. Sometimes the food is supplied by the host, otherwise we provide it (guided tours only).

Executive category

This category is for people who like to add luxury to comfort. You will usually be staying in the best accommodation available in the given area. We would like to point out, however, that in many locations this very high standard is not available and will than be substituted with 'comfort category' (see below).

Comfort category

Designed for guests who like comfort but don't need pure luxury. We have selected 'feel-good' places for you, many with a 4-star rating. They are all different but all have some kind of very special flair. All the rooms have shower/toilet apart from one or two possible exceptions. Typically there is a gourmet breakfast served.
In rare cases, where this style of accommodation isn't available it may be substituted with our "Economy" category.

Economy category

This is ideal for guests who do not require a high standard accommodation.. Many of the properties have a 3-star standard and are frequently used by locals. The facilities are often relatively simple and not necessarily modern, but very clean and have a certain charm.
Altogether very good value for money. It is quite likely that you have to prepare the breakfast by yourself. However, food is usually provided. Where this style of accommodation isn't available it will be substituted with our "comfort" category.

Hostel / Budget category

This is for guests who don't mind sharing a room with others. You will stay in hostels in a dormitory (meaning a room shared with other guests). In some properties only mixed dorms are available. There are only shared facilities. You can not expect to have everything sparkling clean. Bed linen are supplied but towels may not, so please bring your own. You will have to prepare your breakfast by yourself with your own food.
In those locations where there is no hostel available you will stay in a basic hotel or motel in your own room. If you are travelling alone you have to pay the listed single supplement for those nights.
If you are travelling with a partner and want a private room at all times, you should consider our Budget or Economy category.
