Good accommodation to explore the West Coast of Tasmania on a budget. Queenstown has so much history and with all the new things happening on the West Coast its great to getaway for the weekend and just get lost in the serene landscape.

We stayed one night in Queenstown in order to ride the Wilderness Railway early the next morning. We were actually pleasantly surprised by the Mountain View Motel. Everything was spotless, the bed was comfy and the check in and out process simple. It's a bit of a walk into town so if that would bother you, stay at one of the pubs!

Bob, the proprietor was a really nice, sweet older gentleman. And that's where the nice begins and ends. A friend in Hobart was incredulous that we admitted to staying in Queenstown -- whatever for he asked? This is a town that was once (a long, long time ago) a thriving, mining driven locale. Long ago the mines dried up and the town has done its best to remain a relevant part of the Tasmanian landscape. The Mountain View Hotel shares in that attempt to remain relevant in a hospitality industry that has long sense left this property behind. Did I mention Bob was a really sweet guy? Well, he has to be because this Motel should have been bulldozed 25 years ago. When it's in the 30's (1 or 2 degrees Celsius) outside and your room has a hole cut in the wall to allow ventilation for a water heater, well you get the drift (literally). Once we got in the room and figured out the plug in electric heater that came with the room was not going to touch the cold air, we asked Bob for another heater. While sweet about the request, he did admonish me to try and not run the thing too much because electricity costs so much in Tasmania. I reminded Bob that there was a whole in the wall that literally was letting in the arctic air, he just asked to understand why the hole was there..... have I mentioned that Bob was a really sweet man? The two chairs in the room were circa 1970; the bedspread likely in that time period as well. I rather think that nothing has been changed for that length of time. If you're looking for cheap, this place ticks all the boxes one expects to find in the cheap category. This place might be great in warmer weather if you're looking for an older, tired, cheaper Motel 6. In the case of the Mountain View Motel, hopefully they won't leave the light on for you -- in fact, you'd be better off just driving through this town and not stopping at all.

We stayed for 2 nights, and found it fine for our needs. We just needed a decent bed and shower, as we were out sightseeing all day. It is reasonably priced, and the owners are really friendly and lovely.

We stayed for 1 night to ride the cog railway train in the morning. There's not much to do in Queenstown and this was the cheapest place. Still over price. A good price would be around 50U$. We paid around 90U$. It was not very clean and pretty ordinary.
