Review of Motel 429
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Mar 2024
Situated across the road from the shore and a short drive from the centre of Hobart, this proved to be a good place to stay. The road was not so busy that there was significant traffic noise. There was plenty of parking with a mix of spaces under cover and in the open.

All of the rooms were accessible from open walkways that could be reached by a lift or stairs. My room was large, clean and equipped with everything I needed - fridge, microwave, table and chairs, sofa and good wifi. The bathroom, which had a shower, was well maintained although there was a need to repair a soap dispenser.

Overall, it was a good place to stay and somewhere I would be very happy to return to.

Good location, quiet and on the waterfront. Battery Point walkable about 30mins. On a good bus route into town.

Reception staff very welcoming and extremely helpful.

If we return this will definitely be our first choice.

Booking.com made no mention of laundry and a gym on site. If I had known this I would not have looked at other options in Hobart.

Great to have a fridge and microwave and utensils in the room.

Good choice from me and extremely happy with our stay.

Room tip: Had onsite laundry and gym which were not mentioned on booking.com Added bonus for us as I was going to walk 45 mins to laundrette

Beautiful comfortable suite of rooms perfect for a few days away. Love that the room has a sitting area with couch, table and chairs. Plenty of room for luggage. plenty of off street parking. Has the most amazing water pressure in shower, shower is a little small. but the water pressure makes up for it. Cant find any real faults. Perfect spot for a business trip.

We stayed at Motel 429 from 30th December 2022 until 3rd January 2023 and the room was very clean, spacious and reasonably priced. The service we received was first class and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend this Motel which is 10minutes by bus to the City Centre. Would we stay there again, most definitely.
