The room was quite big with 2 queen beds and a kitchette. Continental breakfast was only $9.50 per person ( which was delivered the night before). The location was great...Right across the road from the water as well as only 5minutes walk from the casino.

We stayed in a deluxe self contained room on the first floor with car parking directly underneath the building which made for easy access to our room either by the stairs or the lift with a view to the river! The room had everything we needed for a short stay and it was very handy to have a mini kitchen...

What a lovely visit to Hobart. We searched for cheap accomodation and decided on this motel. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of staff and our really nice room, such awesome value. We definitely recommend and will be back!!

The location is fine. Room is clean And the reception is nice. The only problem is that the location is near the road, and car park just below the rooms. If you are looking for budgeted hotel, this is a good choice.

We (group of 6 women) stayed for 2 nights recently. All 3 rooms had double beds which were so comfortable. Rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will be staying there when we return.

Have stayed a few times now. Always clean and tidy. Friendly staff. Good location to café and Woolies. Easy trip out from town. Close to Casino if you are inclined. Like the rooms which we can park directly outside.

The rooms are very clean and tidy - for the price I would have expected nicer finishes. I wouldn't say the 'gym' or sauna was a selling point. No weights what so ever and the machines are old and dilapidated. Planned to train but it wasn't possible here. Overall it was comfortable but pricy for what it was

We stayed at Motel 429 the night of arrival in and night before departure from Tasmania. Each time check in was very easy and we got a pint of milk for our coffee. My brother and i were traveling together so we needed to queen beds. We both agreed that the beds were very comfortable. Location is not exactly central...

We had one of the freshly renovated rooms. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and provided. I would highly recommend. As an extra bonus, street food vans would set up across the road each night which made for a convenient meal/snack. My only very minor criticisms are that the freezer part of the fridge did not keep our...

We used to stay here quite a bit until the prices went up in line with the renovated rooms. While we have not experienced the older unrenovated ground floor rooms I have read about, there seems to be quite a variation between even the renovated ones. We got room 309 on the 3rd floor and while reasonably large and modern...
