This place brought back lots of memories for us. We honeymooned in Tassie 35 years ago and Lufra was one of the places we fondly remember. The overall stay was pleasant, food in the restaurant was excellent. The room we stayed in was clean and fresh but the general decor and furnishings in the common areas and reception were in...

Great views from the window and we went to the bar that was also very old but warm. The beer was agreeably cold! Reckon I would stay here again as there... More

This was our third stay at Lufra since the rooms are excellent for our family and the staff friendly and helpful. The kitchen is well set up for all we needed to look after ourselves and we could get our clothes washed after our days bushwalking.

Stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment, 2 couples for a week-end away. The second floor apartments have a nice-sized balcony with a small outdoor table and chairs, that looks across the beach and water - stunning location. Apartment itself was in excellent condition and very clean, kitchen was well-fitted out, full-size fridge, stove, stove-top, microwave, dining table. There is a 2-seater... More

We stayed 1 night in a new King Apartment. Great outlook and comfortable. Staff very friendly and willing to help out with requests. Well priced meals. The weekend we stayed a reduced menu was offered as the meal area was booked out for a Blues Night. Still good
