This motel looks quite nice from the outside and has great views but that is where it ends. The room was like something out of 1970, very very dark, furnishings were old and had seen better days. The worst part was it was so cold. I stayed in this motel in March/April and the Tasmanian weather was not that cold... More

Thank you Review, I a disappointed that your stay was not up to your expectation. We are always interested in comments and I need to say we have reacted to the cold weather, perhaps the coldest it has been in 15years. The Motel has recently purchased and upgraded heating in the room. We have also changed our linen suppliers to... More

First stayed in 1970. Only things that appear to have changed since then is a new flat screen TV and an inadequate heater. The bathroom still has the outdated shower over bath with a tiny heater that did not work. The room was freezing all the time. It was a cold night but the small panel heater ( set to... More

We stayed one night and were desperate for accommodation on dark. From the outside looks nice and comfortable. Manager was great, friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately the room was cold as the heater didn't warm it up. No electric blanket on a king size bed and no heating in the bathroom. We froze! We wore our beanies extra clothing and thick...

The people running the City View Hotel in Montagu Bay are the most helpful and pleasant people you could find. Nothing's too much trouble for them. You get the most beautiful glimpse of Hobart from the Hotel and the city itself was only 5 minutes away.

The provisions here were just what we wanted. Comfortable clean beds, regular daily cleaning and towel replacement, wi-fi access and TV. If you happen to speak to reception or management, or have a SatNav getting here is no problem. Neither is anything else for that matter. Sure the place is old, but our room was well maintained. Would recommend if... More

Do not stay at this place. We were given one of the un-renovated rooms, pictures of which which don't seem to have made it on to the website!!!!!! The room was grotty, stains on the furnishings, benches and in the cupboards. The shower was filthy and no amount of carpet deodoriser could ever hide the mouldy smell which pervaded the... More

A blast back to the 70's at todays prices. Still in original condition with scratchy old towels, a plastic bowl to wash your dishes and no house keeping. I dont mind staying in hotels with only the basics, but I would like to pay accordingly. No where to plug in your bedside lamp but thank god the bed was clean.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the City View. We do understand that our advertised out of the 60s, and up to date whilst keeping true to the era. Having said that we do have housekeeping service and do not understand why you would have had a problem. We keep our rate well and truly lower than the... More

room wasnt very clean plus the bathroom looked like it just had new towels put in and that was it ,very out dated and strange - staff very rude and charge you before you even arrive so you dont get the chance to pay cash. there are so many more places closer to the city to stay.
