Message from adult leader:

Well it is only 2 days into the tour and we have covered a lot of ground walking everywhere. The weather has been bitterly cold, but our girls have been extremely tolerant and just got on with things - thank goodness for the wardrobe items of gloves, scarves and beanies that have really come in handy! We're …

Message from adult leader:

The First Light opening ceremony has come and gone. Despite being tired and bleary eyed, our girls were keen as mustard to perform but it was not to be.

The weather gods were against us and it turned out to be a wet, windy and cold afternoon. We've had some bad weather in Auckland recently but this was …

After 6 hours on the boat and 6 hours on the bus, our tired, smelly group were standing before Tildy, the receptionist at the Hotel Astor in Hobart. Tildy is a larger than life character that has to be met to be believed. Suffice to say, the style of the lovely Astor and the character of the lovely Tildy had me thinking I had stumbled onto the set …

We arrived in the afternoon in Hobart via a Virgin Blue plane from Brisbane. We spent about an hour finalizing our two food bags that were to be airplane dropped in Melaleuca. Tassair, a small local airline, operated flights in Tasmania and served a lot of trampers who wanted to fly in to Melaleuca and start the South Coast track there. They also …

http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/recreation/ tracknotes/scoast.htm l Up at 6am, easy when in Calgary it is 12 noon! Gorged on free continental breakfast. At 7:30am we rushed out of the Astor Hotel to the bus station and got onto the first of our two buses towards Cockle Creek. The teary banter between the two bus drivers (one was a trainee) and a surfer …

    Loved our stay at the Astor

    We loved the Astor Private Hotel because of Tildy, who runs this place so well, but has such a wonderful sense of humor that will entertain you. The hotel is within walking distance of Salamanca Place and the waterfront. There is free parking and a substanial continental breakfast in the breakfast room. Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Great home-away-from-home hotel

    As a group that comprises 61 adults and children, I have to admit that our circumstances and requirements were not what you would consider normal. However, for a hotel to be able to accommodate our requirements and even exceed our expectations is the reason that we've given Astor a 5-star rating.

    The hotel is not exactly modern in terms of decor and facilities but the qualities that we were after were: central, clean, warm and secure (when you have 42 young charges, security is paramount). We got what we wanted and more.

    Being able to book out the entire hotel has been a great advantage to our group as it means that we can use the facilities as if we were 'at home', without having to worry about other guests. This has been of great benefit to us.

    The decor and facilities can best be described as 'quaint'. It exudes old school charm and might not be everyone's cup of tea, especially if you've stayed at plush 5-star hotels. But for the qualities mentioned above, this hotel certainly delivers in spades.

    And I've saved the best for last: Tildy, the owner of the hotel, is the reason that this hotel is so highly rated. She made us feel welcome from the get-go, and has worked so hard to feed and house us in a professional but personable way. No request has been too arduous. She does not make you feel bad about asking for something. Her personality is larger than the nearby Mt Wellington, and she is just a lovely person who makes you feel like part of the family. It's hard to describe; you just have to book and stay at this hotel to experience what I mean. Tildy, you are the best!
