We stayed here for ten nights to be close to Hobart, without actually being in Hobart. It was an ok room, and what we expected for the price. But the bathroom was shithouse. Water somehow got all over the floor under the sink, there was no fan in bathroom which meant steam and mildew and condesation on the floor and... More

Charged me for a room I didn't use even though I called the day before to cancel. Apparently that wasn't "24 hours notice". What is wrong with you people? I would never book again now and would not advise anyone else to do so regardless of the quality of the hotel room. Poor customer service which should not happen in... More

Good location, pretty good rooms (clean and light with a nice view over the water to Hobart CBD), all in all quite good value for money. It is however quite tricky to get to and if you miss the one and only turn off its a bit of a roundabout trip to get back in. Only negative feedback would be... More

This motel is great value for money.. The room we had was quite large with a view over the river, it was clean and comfortable with all required facilities. Access to and from the motel took a bit of getting used too, however the manager gave a few clues as to which lane to stay in and what signs to... More

At first bit disconcerted by the location but came to realize that the Motel was very accessible and being close to but not in the city suited us really well. The motel fittings are in the process of being upgraded but have to say the king size bed was new and extremely comfortable. It was great being able to sit... More

This motel is not new, but is clean, comfortable, convenient to Hobart and Eastern Shore and is remarkably quiet despite being beside the Tasman Hwy. The triple rooms look west to Mt Wellington range and the city. They have a private balcony overlooking a tree studded paddock which made our stay very relaxing. These rooms are are airy with plenty... More

Great views. Really difficult initially to find and complicated to get back to Hobart but worth it once you work it all out. Very clean rooms with everything you need. Furniture very old and worn bur bed wonderfully comfortable with good linen

We needed to be at the airport very early the next day so our requirements were basically just a cheap but decent place to put down our heads for the night within a reasonable drive of the airport and City View fitted the bill very nicely. The bed was huge with good quality linen and there was a little table... More

Friends had stayed here years ago and recommended City View...unfortunately the tone was set when we saw the 'Budget' sign....the location is great high on a hill overlooking the city which was lovely despite the smoke from the nearby fires.....it was also rather tricky to get to (even with a GPS) if you are driving as it took longer than...
