Loved it

Posted Aug 26, 2016
It's an amazing place to live in. Love the location and it is situated at close to most of the place that I wanted to go. Situated on a quiet street and you have an amazing view of Mount Wellington on one side and the river on the other side. I would recommend people to live there as I had a wonderful experience in that place.its is affordable and the best part is the toilets are clean and this lodge believe in environmental products

Frequent Guest

Posted Aug 11, 2016
Pros: Darren at reception is very friendly and helpful.
Location: Location of this property was excellent for my purposes.
I have been a frequent guest over the last 2 years and I have stayed in most of the rooms in the main building on the top level, ie standard room or room with a view(room 1). Most rooms are comfortable, there is one room that I will not stay in because I don't find the bed comfortable, room 14. Room 1 is a large room with 2 walls of windows overlooking the water. In winter it is a cold room and the oil heater is not able to heat the room unless the heater is left on all of the time. I would suggest that a proper TV antenna connection in Room 1would be really good as it currently has an old pair of rabbit ears which is on top of kitchen shelves and it gets moved by housekeeping which then requires me to stand on a chair to try and fix the TV reception. TV reception in this room is affected by the opening and closing of the door to the balcony and the movement of the metal furniture on the balcony that is used by the smokers. Overall this property is showing its age and it could do with some renovations including upgrading the windows so all of them can be opened and then closed easily and they can be partially opened and stay open when there is a wind.

Value & Comfort

Posted Jul 16, 2016
Linens were clean and there was bed heating as well as a separate heater to keep you warm during the winter. Checking in & out was smooth and speedy. Just a short drive to city centre & overall a great value for the price I paid.

Would recommend

Posted Jun 19, 2016
Nice location 5km or so from the CBD. Clean and comfortable room, helpful staff and a very reasonable price. Unless you're looking for 5 star luxury, I would definitely recommend that you give this place a go.

Stayed overnight as had a day-trip to MONA. Arrived late and the service at reception was very helpful. Room was exactly what I needed, comfortable double bed, bathroom with all soaps and lotions included, and a television. Only downside was that the heater did not heat the room as well as it could have, was a little cold.

Good for an overnight stay.

Posted Jun 5, 2016
Pros: Price was very competitive.
Cons: The addition of a cafe or even a vending machine.
Location: Very little nearby unless you have a car. The location is beautiful right on the banks of the Derwent River.
Very basic but you get what you pay for. Electric blanket didn't work and no where to eat close by. If you are staying for more than a night you will need a car as there is nothing around the area. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

景色が綺麗

Posted May 25, 2016
また泊まりたい、景色が綺麗だった!スタッフも親切で部屋も広くて清潔、スーパー等が遠いのが難点でタスマニア自体、レンタカーなどが必要だと感じた!

Great value

Posted May 13, 2016
Clean and in good condition. Close to river (as the name suggests). We caught the bus to town. Only a short 12 minute drive in the car to Salamanca. Excellent value for money
