This ppty is way up the hill from the town, inaccessible with out a car, from Salamanca, any restaurants and bars or nice resort area of Sandy Bay. Reception closes at 8 pm if you lucky. Do not go to this place, unfriendly, unhelpful, don't wish to spend more of my time on it. DONT GO.

We chose this motel as everything else was booked out at the time but my wife and I were excited to try vintage style accommodation. From the looks of the motel you could be forgiven that you were walking into a Fawlty Tours set complete with 1950’s wallpaper and paintings. Interestingly there are real VHS tapes to watch!.

I enjoyed staying in this hotel. I found it to be clean and comfortable. Being historic it fitted with the theme of my weekend so I didn't mind the historical aspect of the hotel. Its not too far out of the centre if you are reasonably fit its walkable. Theres plenty of parking if you have a car. I loved... More

Our room was warm and cosy but everything is well worn and there was a musty smell each time you entered the room. Bed and pillows were comfy and bedding and towels of good quality. Tea, coffee, biscuits and fresh milk were supplied. Bathroom was very good with a bath though quite cold.We could not get WiFi in our room.... More

First impressions are not good. But how many times have been told about judging a book by its cover? The motel wings are built around an historic Hobart building. Everything from Reception to the rooms reek of the 1970s, but in a positive way. Where else can you get videos to play on the in-room VCR? The room itself was... More

I thought from the moment I walked into Reception with its throw back to some forgotten age and my introduction to the room with chandeliers and wall paper that I wasn't going to enjoy my stay. But the room sort of grows on you. Even with power points that didn't work and a heater with a broken thermostat it wasn't... More

We stayed 3 nights at a Spa Suite in this hotel. Decoration is so elegant. The room is very spacious and comfortable. There is a kitchen with microwave only so that you cannot cook. The old building is located on a hill but only few minutes drive to the city. The view is great and the air is so fresh... More

Quiet location with friendly helpful staff. Well equipped room with microwave, fridge and toaster. It is old fashioned, which added to its charm, even a bath. Parking available on site. Ask for directions to stores, restaurants etc
