Explorers Lodge is a beautiful property set in a gorgeous location. Our rooms were spotless, extremely comfortable and warm with lots of lovely touches to make our time there very special. The hosts were welcoming and generous. The breakfast was delicious. We highly recommend Explorers Lodge to anyone who wishes to stay in New Norfolk.

Peaceful and Handy to Hobart

Pros: We liked that it was small and enjoyed meeting other guests over breakfast to share travel experiences.
Cons: Our room would be quite warm to hot in Summer - no air-conditioning; only a ceiling fan.
Location: Near Hobart and the Mt. Field National Park
Very welcoming and helpful hosts. We were spoilt for choice at breakfast! Highly recommended!

New Norfolk,Tazmania

Pros: Could not ask for better hosts.
Cons: A bit more storage/ hanging space would be good ( said gently)
Location: About 30 mins from Hobart cbd. Is anywhere far in Tazzie?
Liz and Nigel went out of their way to extra helpful. The Continental Breakfast was not just good it was excellent, choices, fresh fruit, assorted jams and a choice of white, wholemeal bread or crosants. Guests lounge very good, lovely garden for a quiet beer or wine (byo) in the evening sun.

Lovely B&B

A charming B&B with charming hosts. The room was very comfortable with its own spacious bathroom. The nearby dining was fully stocked with teas coffee & biscuits. Good quality China and linen provided. Breakfast was a delight with fresh fruit croissants muesli toast and more. Liz and her husband could not do enough to make us comfortable. A thoroughly enjoyable stay
