How to Get There
My wife and I booked a second-floor room overlooking magnificent Lake St. Clair in this renovated, eighty-year old hydroelectric plant, impeccably designed inside like a three-story edgy ship. The exterior was left virtually untouched. Located at the end of a long cement quay, you can see one of the old turbines deep below through sturdy plexiglass on the first floor. A complimentary breakfast is included in the dining hall on shore. Tasmania is full of cool surprises, but as hotels go, this one belongs on a marquee. Nearby is an incredible one hundred meter wood sculpture of stunning realism called "The Wall," carved over a decade by Aussie artist Greg Duncan.
The Pumphouse been on my bucket list for a while now. The location is amazing, there is nothing quite like waking in the early morning being greeted by all that nature has to offer, while enjoying luxurious accommodation. Only had a couple of nights here and would have loved to have more. It's truly a place where you can relax and wind down. Loved our position on the water, the opportunity to relax by the fireplace, head out of the communal lounge and stand on the balcony out on the lake was wonderful. This place lived up to my expectations. Can recommend the shared meal experience, the 9.15am tour of the pumphouse, the walks along the trail paths (keep an eye out for the resident echidnas, wombats, platypus), and bike rides. Thank you to the wonderful hosts and staff who made our stay very enjoyable.
My sister and I stayed at Pumphouse for 2 nights and loved it. We were in room 10 on the top floor of the Pumphouse and had ever changing, amazing views - water all around us, stars at night, swallows landing on our windowsill. We had a meal in the restaurant on one night and really enjoyed the shared dining experience. We loved the walks in the immediate area, particularly a new one from Pumphouse Point along the lake edge to the Visitor Centre and back. We loved using the lounge areas, breakfasts were lovely and the staff were all charming and attentive. What a fabulous place - we would love to come back one day but stay for longer.
Many great things about this hotel: amazing lake view, lots of activities, daily menu from neighboring award winning farm. But what we loved and felt was the most authentic about this place were the couple the manages the property, Gabby and Craig. They are warm, helpful, so hospitable, offered us great tips and recommendations on what to do that were spot on. We will definitely recommend this place to family and friends! But do book early as they only have 18 rooms, availability can be limited.
Where else can you sit in front of a roaring log fire, with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot Noir, looking out over Australia's deepest lake towards the mountains? We stayed in the Pump House itself, in a beautifully fitted room with every convenience we could wish foor. The in-room larder was filled with delicious foods and we thoroughly enjoyed the hot bread which arrived less than 10 minutes after we requested it. Service throughout our stay was outstanding. The weather was rather wet, and we and our fellow guests made frequent use of the electric buggy service between the shore house and the Pump House - it may be only 500 metres but with the rain coming down sideways we appreciated being able to call up the covered transport!
Shared dining was fun - we met lovely people from all over Australia and further afield.
This is NOT a lodge type establishment, with a starred Michelin chef on tap and an a la carte restaurant. Instead, the aim is to provide a taste of what Tasmania has to offer and we felt it was well done on both nights of our stay.Wines are also reasonably priced. DO put aside time to go with the GM on a tour of the Pump House - 9:15 each morning, and DON't miss going to the Wall - just a short drive away- another unique bit of Tasmania. Excellent walks from the VIsitor Centre,,and you can get out on the lake itself in one of the Pump House dinghies - very much alone with nature. Thoroughly recommend as a truly unique place to stay.
