Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our first night in Tasmania...an older property that has had a good, basic renovation of their rooms - easy to find, close to town, clean, good tea/coffee making facilities, parking at the door, comfortable bed for the night and a busy bistro right on your doorstep! Everything you need for a one night stay.

Only there for a meal - first night in Tasmania so needed to sort out a meal and this was closest to our accommodation (Air BnB). Place was almost booked out but staff rallied around and sorted us a table. ordered food and wine and enjoyed our evening - food was very good and service was excellent. A bit noisy but they were busy with a number of parties going on.

I ordered garlic scallops, although they are not harmful i was looking forward to white cooked scallops not fleshy cold raw scallops. Very dissapointing. I didnt even get through the first mouthful.

I hope that you raised this with the staff at the time so they could try to address. If not, please feel free to contact our manager to discuss on argosy@goodstone.com.au or 03 6427 8872. We would appreciate the opportunity to address.

Everything you would want from a Motel. A great location, not only for the ferry, but also near facilities. Motels are so spacious here in Australia, and this one in Tasmania is no different, lots of room.

Close to Spirit of Tasmania terminal. Good accommodation although the rooms are rather small. Very clean and tidy. Lovely meals in the bistro or the bar. Breakfast was also available. Great staff in reception. TAB on site and pokies. I do highly recommend.

Very convenient location to the Spirit of Tasmania. Old motel that has been recently renovated, nice bathroom, basic renovation of the room, the room is much smaller than the photo’s description and did not look like the photos, ok for 1 night

Thanks for the feedback Geoff. Do note that the main images on the site you booked through do show our Suite Rooms, not the standard Queen you booked. But the images on the room selection are showing the standard rooms and also state the smaller size (meterage) compared to the suites. The standards are smaller rooms and priced accordingly. We apolgise if the main banner images gave you an incorrect expectation of size. I am glad you enjoyed your stay regardless and found the motel convenient for your trip

Jackie booked us in helpful and great customer service skills, we had a large room with a small balcony looking out to the river. Nice and close to the Spirit which meant we could book ourselves in have lunch in the bistro and just relax for the rest of the afternoon
