Reviewed 13 August 2010

When I booked it, I thought that this place was in Hobart. It is far away. Accessible by car only. Bus service is sporadic and on Sunday, almost non-existent. $60+ taxi from airport - no other option. Downtown Hobart hotels have shuttle bus from airport available - much cheaper.
Dated 1960s interior with some non-working outlets. Tennis court and pool are in name only. Decrepit tennis court with sagging net; pool is 4ft by 12ft and full of dirt and leaves.Room cold with electric heater only
Pluses: cheap, fairly roomy, clean, expensive in-house restaurant (no other option) but extremely nice waiting staff, friendly helpful reception

and service. Yes, we are 10 minutes drive north of Hobart CBD at Rosetta, and we do recommend our guests have their own transport or hire car for this reason. Please note that we consider our Restaurant to have options for every budget. For example, our full continental breakfast buffet is only $9.50 per person, and our lunch & dinner main meals start at only $14.50 for our hearty River Burger with chips, stepping up to schnitzels and roast of the day which are only $17.50-$19.50. We also have a lunch 2 course special for only $17.50. We do also cater for more premium meals such as fresh Tasmanian seafood and Tasmanian yearling steaks. Since your stay, we have re-tightened the tennis court net and scooped the winter debris from the pool. Please note that the current day temperature is between 9-15 degrees only so the pool isn't used this time of year. We do apologise however for the unkempt appearance and have rectified the matter. Once again, thanks for your feedback and the opportunity to respond.

Stayed in a one bedroom Villa. It was clean, comforatable and well equiped for the self catered holliday maker. Ther is a BBQ by the river and a great place to enjoy the evening. Check out the restaurant. The food is good and of generous proportion.

We stayed in a one-bed villa for 6 nights. The location is good if you have a car. It is next to the Brooker Hwy, which gets you around Hobart and the surrounding areas. Suprisingly even though it was near the hwy it was very quiet.
The villa was clean and comfortable. It had a washing machine and clothes line. We stayed with our one year old and there was plently to keep him busy. There's a basic playground and heated pool, as well as ducks outside your front door!
We would definately stay here again.

This motel is really not that bad of a place if you are on a tight budget. We were looking for an inexpensive place and this fit the bill perfectly. If you are just looking for a place to sleep, then this is all you need. The rooms aren't 5 star, but are enough for basic needs. Plus it was nice to open the back door and have the river right there and a nice view. The staff was nice and helpful. And the Cadburry Chocolate Factory was very close. What more do you really need?
