Accommodation categories


General information:

Considering that guests have different attitudes regarding their personal comfort needs and available funds we offer the choice of up to 5 accommodation categories. Apart from the accommodation the tours are identical. In general we prefer small, privately owned places, against big sterile hotels. We have chosen a cross-section of accommodation styles that reflect what’s generally on offer in Tasmania, like hotels, motels, apartments and 'cottages'. 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).
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.
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.

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.

Budget category

For guests who insist on a room for themselves but don´t mind to have it very basic. This is quite basic accommodation with sometimes just hostel standard, not always cleaned to perfection, but you always have your own room with fresh linen and towels supplied. Usually shared facilities. Where this style of accommodation isn't available it will be substituted with our "economy" category.

Hostel category

This is for guests who don't mind sharing a room with others. You will stay mostly 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 very clean rooms. 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 many locations are no hostels available. In these locations you will stay in a hotel or motel of our budget or economy categories. 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.
