My daughter recently stayed with a school group. They stayed in The Mansion. There was one shower for a large group, peeling wallpaper, threadbare blankets, damp odour, holes in plaster in cupboards. Quite a few in the group has dietary issues included vegan and vegetarian. Those concerned did not accommodate these issues at all and appeared to be annoyed by...

Room we had was very basic and small, had tv fridge mini bar etc. The room size reflected on the price so no complaints. The meals were fantastic along with the service and friendly staff. I would probibly go a bigger room next time with seating in it, however I would stay again.

Well what can you say, its a budget motel with an awesome view, bed was okay, a little on the soft side , the water pressure was good, rooms are very small and dated, walls are very thin , you can hear everything, the breakfast cart is so noisy , maybe put on rubber wheels .

Wonderful View alone makes the stay worthwhile. Stayed at the more updated 2 b/r & older single rm lodging. The 2b/r is a modern attached unit with kitchen, dining room, lounge & lge bathroom. v/good. The single room was more 50's vintage, the same age as the Queen Elizabeth sculpture/memorial adj. Noisey & Very Small & Cramped. The staff where...

Riverfront motel is in an ideal location which overlooks the Derwent river with great views. Mona museum and winery is just a 15 minute walk away and the Cadbury chocolate factory in Clarmont an hours walk the factory is now closed to the public but still a good walk with good views. There is a metro bus you can catch...

We spent 2 nights here, after a trip to Freycinet area, and were really happy. Easy access of the A1 highway. Can be a bit noisy from the highway, and not a lot of insulation between rooms, though we were lucky on this front. For the price though you get a fantastic view of the Derwent which was so beautiful...

We were not able to get a larger room, so we were somewhat squashed for our three nights in Hobart, but found the room adequate and good value. We were very pleased to have a guest laundry and took advantage of that. The parking was difficult for our room. This is a huge place, with very large grounds, so probably...

One night quick stopover for 3 of us. Room seven looked across the water and offered a great sunrise (exactly like the picture). This is an old motel that has been refurbished very well. Rooms quiet, spacious, very clean. Very comfortable beds. Parking outside the room. Friendly staff. Free local newspaper. It has a bistro that we wished we had...

We needed a last minute hotel, and found this one at a great price. It is an older, cosy hotel but it had everything we needed including a guest laundry. The staff were all very friendly and our room service was quick with good size meals at a reasonable price. Definitely worth a look.

although quite close to one of the busy roads into the city of Hobart the noise in the room was not noticeable, quite sound proof in fact. The same couldn't be said for some of the neighbouring guests who may not have stayed in a motel before and unaware that its nice to be quiet for other guests comfort too....
