The motel's website describes this as a "no frills accommodation." This is a good value for a budget motel. Our ensuite room was clean, quiet, comfortable, secure, and you could easily make a simple meal in its small kitchen, though we dined out. There was a hob, fridge, microwave, sink, dishes, cutlery. Parking was right in front for easy unloading...

After we had dropped our companions at the Roteburn Trail Station it was only a short drive to this motel which we had chosen for its location and moderate rates and we were not disappointed.The one room unit had a very comfortable bed, enough space to sit and chat and have breakfast, a small but tidy bathroom and an inviting...

This motel meets all the requirements for a quiet night after 4 days riding. Nothing special, but a comfortable bed, wifi and an easy walk to restaurants. Reasonable price and much quieter than Queenstown. It would have been ideal for the night before we started if we had known and perhaps the riding company should advertise it for that..

If you need a room for a hot shower after a trek or climb in this area then this is the spot for you. Facilities are basic and the whole building in dated but it is a safe haven for the weary tramper/climber. My mate and I had 2 or 3 nights here whilst suffering in the nearby mountains and...

We booked this online the night before our arrival, and got there about 5. The host was friendly and efficient and we found the unit clean, the super king size bed very comfortable, and really appreciated the two lazy boy chairs provided for us. They have a very active policy of recycling and conservation with clear instructions and receptacles so...

Glenorchy is way, way from the beat and rush of everyday life. This motel does a great job putting everyday life behind you. It is a very homey kind of place, with a small garden around the office area. Even though it's on the main drag, it is quiet. It's with in easy stroll of Glenorchy's town center as well...

We arrived in Glenorchy after doing the Cascade Saddle and Rees track. After checking out a few other places in Glenorchy, which we found either too expensive or poor value for money, we found the Mt Earnslaw motel. It was just what we needed, our own space, clean and cosy, quiet and a comfortable bed with big fluffy pillows. Good...

We recently stayed at this motel, in a very large room with a very clean and modern bathroom. The room was quiet, had some nice seating outside, and was located centrally in Glenorchy. We were surprised to find the motel in such a good state, since LP describes it as 'dated'. I can only disagree with that and highly recommend...

A friend and I recently stayed at the Mt Earnslaw Motel in Glenorchy. The small compact unit was all that we required, excellent value for money.
