Not far away from Hobart CBD at all

Posted Nov 28, 2017
The motel was closer to the CBD than we thought with a Coles and Kmart just up Risdon Rd. The motel itself was clean and the hotel staff were friendly. The space in the rooms were limited but to be expected. Only fans in the rooms, although we found the opening the window provided cooler airflow. Motel parking was limited, but parking was provided in the free land next door. Would come here again if travelling in a group.

Excellent Value

Posted Nov 12, 2017 on Wotif
This small motel just out of Hobart is tucked away in an obscure suburb with water and mountain views for rooms only on one side of hotel. Friendly staff.Easy to book in and responded quickly to our need for a replacement kettle. Brightly painted and furnished it is a cheerful place to stay. Bed a bit hard but linen was good hotel quality. Not perfection in terms of cleaning but fine. No cooling for our room facing west which warmed up considerably even on a 21 degree day, but there is a fan on the wall. The overflow parking on the vacant lot next door reflects the underlying rough and ready aspect of this budget hotel. We got a Wotif deal for our stay here and quite pleased overall with the comfort level. I would stay here again.

lovely view, comfortable room

Posted Nov 6, 2017 on Wotif
We had a lovely view from our room. The room was comfortable, clean, and we appreciated having 2 rooms (a door between the main room with 1 bed and the bedroom (3 beds)) so the kids were not in the same room as us.

Value for money accommdation

Posted Nov 3, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: Close to city, clean and value for money
Cons: Change bathroom automatic exhaust to manual operation as it is too noisy and also freezing even after having a hot shower. Only drawback!
Location: Close to city and Mona museum.
This was very economical accommodation close to Hobart city when compared to inner city rates. Room was basic but clean and comfortable and staff helpful. When looking for an economical accommodation in Hobart close to the city I would recommend to friends.

Nice place to live

Posted Oct 27, 2017
The staffs are very friendly. Room is exactly the same as shown on the photos. Close to city but need a car. Have microwave and fridge which is excellent! Bed is soft but not my preference. Wi-Fi is a bit slow. Overall this is a nice place to live!
