We stayed here recently after booking with the information centre. I am on forearm crutches. This motel has ramps but they are very steep and slippery if it rains. I ended up having to use the steps with assistance as I didn't feel safe. Bed was comfortable,(king), however rest of room needs updating. bathroom really outdated, missing part of the...

Having not booked anywhere in advance we were glad to find somewhere to stay in Hobart. Although the owner gave us directions, we missed the turn off, and had a frustrating time finding the motel - made it eventually. Ended up getting taxi's into / home from the city centre for dinner, to save the saga of trying to find...

This place is deceiving in that the rooms are better than the outward appearance. Yes the place is a tad old, but the rooms have been updated within a budget. The important bits (bed, TV, bathroom and appearance) have been done well and a very competitive tariff for Hobart (we know, as we stay a lot in Hobart!). Hobart has...

Arrived and told we should have rang and booked because booking.com get paid a commission etc. (probably didn't need to know that) then got sarcasm because we asked for our travel partners room to be near if possible. Then dip inside floor of room with lip on other side which caused my son to hurt and bruise his toe! Bathroom...

The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and we where also able to have our dogs stay with us in the room, which is very hard to find. We will definitely ne staying here anytime...

I could not believe it, my friend and I booked online and stated that we would be arriving at 4pm. On arrival at 3.30pm after travelling hours to get there, we entered the office & were not so kindly greeted, we were quite rudely told our room had been sold as apparently my credit card hadn't worked, no apologies no...

My recent stay here was a memorable one but will never stay here again The first room I was given had a shower in which the tiled floor had numerous colours with a shower curtain but nothing on the floor to contain the water so after taking a shower with little water pressure the bathroom was under water.

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and tidy room. However, shower water pressure was not great, and be aware there is no air conditioning in any of the rooms. My room had no windows I could open either, so I had to set up a fan in front of my open front door.
