The location of the motel next door to the historical site is really about the only positive thing I can find to say about this place- other than it has convenient parking which is the least one would expect from a Motor Inn. It has dismal accommodation that is shabby and well beyond its sell-by date. The breakfast was presented...

This motel is located overlooking the historical site, is very basic in its offering, no internet. Food was good but the bar service was poor. The motel is due to be redeveloped and is showing signs of lack of maintenance.

Set right on the edge of the historic Port Arthur site, it has its own private gate which your room key allows you to access the site through. You can buy tickets to the site from reception which allows you to avoid the crowds at the main gate. We stayed in a Spa Suite and the room was great, good...

The rooms with a verandah give you a great outlook over the site. Staff were friendly. If you intend to eat there book in to...

Great location for the historic sights. Accommodation is as you'd expect for a motor inn, but you have a lovely decking area out front which is so peaceful. Didnt want a full meal in the dining area so we had a bar meal which was great and the staff were excellent - couldn't have done more.

Nice little motel in a great location. Backs on to Port Arthur historical site so walking distance. We did the ghost tour one night and walked around the next day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay here. Restaurant was also nice with an amazing view.

We were doing the (excellent) 3 Capes Walk and really, really wanted a spa at the end. We booked one here five months ahead, and asked for and received written confirmation. When we arrived, we were given a pokey, old-fashioned room without a spa, or even a bath. Thinking this was a mistake, we went back to the manager and...
