Our second stay here, just as enjoyable as the first

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Apr 2024
Not stayed at the Argosy for a couple of years, had an excellent stay last time staying in one of their standard ground floor queen rooms.
This time opted for a king suite which was in a separate block from the ground level rooms. The room was on the ground floor with first floor rooms above, I assume this is the case with all king suites eg a ground or first floor option, perhaps best to book over the phone if matters exactly what room you have.
Large spacious and modernised room everything neat and well presented and with a multicompartment waste bin so you can separate your recyclables and non recyclables.
Heard a bit of noise from the room above but nothing I haven't experience before...sound of water running/shower etc.
The motel clearly states that there are no room specific allocated parking spaces on site, but there is plenty of parking including large open area at the bistro end of the motel. I would say the parking area near the king suite area we were on was probably a little tighter than the rest of the motel spaces. All off street though and very convenient.
Handy for access to Bass Highway, no major noise though even from the highway and very easy to find if you have just arrived off the Spirit of Tasmania. If you are checking in at the motel NOT having arrived off the boat I'd suggest you check in from advertised check in time through to 5pm-ish if you can. If a boat has just arrived in the evening there can be a lot of people checking in at once, gets a bit busy.

Staff helpful and friendly I would happily stay at The Argosy again and would recommend. On site food service very good too, see separate review of bistro for dinner.

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.

My wife and I used this motel after getting off the Spirit of Tasmania, we were both tired so were happily surprised by the motel.Plenty of space in the room and the shower was great.The TV was the biggest I've seen in a hotel/motel

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.

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.
