Great Overnight Stay

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Aug 2022via mobile
Check in was super easy and when we arrived and found our room I was a little worried as we were in the very old looking rooms. However the inside has been completely renovated and looked amazing. Stayed one night with the pub/club next door for dinner and breakfast served down stairs of the hotel. Great location, great facilities and lovely staff. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at The Argosy for the first time having disembarked from an evening/night arrival on The Spirit of Tasmania.

The Argosy is a convenient find being adjacent to the river and as we discovered we were not the only ones 'off the boat' doing a late check in so there was a little queue at the entrance.
The lady in reception was FANTASTIC calm and polite whilst processing the deluge of arrivals heading her way. Remained calm and helpful throughout even when a rather annoying guest kept interupting her whilst checking other guests in.

Room was easy to find with good sized allocated parking space near room.
Main room was large and spacious with good storage and facilities, bathroom was bright and modern.
Although in the more industrial part of Devonport and close to the main Bass Highway we had a quiet night and a good sleep.

Breakfast in the motel bistro was great too (see separate review)

I would definitely recommend The Argosy and stay here again if I needed too.

We hired the room for one night on our way back to Melbourne after a holiday in Tasmania. We booked it because it is close to the ferry, however it was much more than that. It was a room in the newer part of the motel clean, large, good facilities, quiet (with the door closed) and efficiently run.
We will stay her again if we come back to Tassie.

Room tip: Get one of the newer rooms

We chose the motor inn as it was close to the Spirit's port which made it quick to get to when we arrived in Devonport. The motor inn is located on the river port area and next to the Bass Highway. We didn't have any problem with traffic noise during the day and it wasn't bad at night either. It is close to drive into Devonport shopping area where there is a Coles and Wollies supermarkets. Our room had had some refurbishment but it seemed to be half done with paint flaking on the ceiling and power points in user unfriendly positions. The bathroom had been refurbished but needs to have a better clean of the ceiling as there is some mould starting.

The bed was very comfy. There is a guest laundry on site but we didn't use it.

There is a bistro on site which serves pub food at a reasonable price and what we had was very tasty.

This hotel is situated in East Devonport which is close to where the Spirit of TAS leaves.

Stayed here with extended family, while the rooms are small, they are super clean and offer the usual amenities.

Reception customer service was helpful, friendly and very efficient.

It’s motel environment, your car is parked outside your room for easy access and a short walk to the local onsite local pub which is very popular with locals.

Bottle shop and several cafes nearby, it is situated on the other side of the city but a short walk or drive across the bridge to take you to the mall etc.
