In Hobart for three nights with wife and three grandchildren. Had stayed at the motel four years ago and was well pleased then. Chose to stay at the Unit mainly because the numbers. Fantastically furnished three bedroom apartment as part of the motel, with fully equipped kitchen and washing machine. Access straight on to Sandy Bay Road, but double glazing defeated all the traffic noise - quiet and peaceful. The grandchildren were impressed with the television sets in all the bedrooms. If you don't want to drive or Uber/taxi into the CBD there's an excellent bus service almost just outside. Good restaurants close by and just across the road - almost - from Wrest Point Hotel/Casino.

Stayed here as part of a business trip. Room was really nice and private. Loved the contactless check in/check out process. Room was very modern and clean, plenty of parking and a bargain for the price.

I'm so impressed with this accommodation provided. Amidst all of the turmoil of the Covid-19 crisis, I was panicking because I'd booked several nights non-refundable rooms for myself, my partner, and my parents (two rooms). I contacted the owners and immediately got a refund on the rooms. I'm astounded with this gesture of good-will, especially considering many of the big chains are acting completely selfishly and keeping people's money. I cannot wait for all of this to be over so we can visit Tasmania and stay in an honest establishment.

Chose this motel as it was close to the Casino where we had booked for christmas Day lunch. Easy walking distance even for a not so fit person. Roo s great size, lovely to have the small lounge and dining table,. Had the room with d Stairwell by reception, great spot for the luggage. Comfortable bed, mini bar prices very reasonable, especially for water and non alcoholic drinks. the staff are friendly and and helpful the bed is very comfortable,good size tv, modern fixtures and fittings,it represents excellent value for money.
