Traveled to Hobart for a two day conference with 5 other people and this hotel had been booked for us. I found this to be very comfortable, clean and the bed was divine to sleep in. If I Ever have to visit hobart again I will definately stay again. Thanku so much.

Clean hotel and comfy bed. Bathroom is very small and not very accessible. Quite dangerous if you are a senior. The room served us for what we needed for the 4 days we stayed. Close to Wrest Point Casino and lovely view.

With a name like Motel 429 you couldn't be faulted for thinking this wouldn't be much of a motel…but you would be wrong. We booked using a third party internet source which always concerns, however the friendly desk clerk had all our reservation in order and we were quickly checked in. Our room was on the third floor at the... More

We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit...looks old from outside but when you step inside its the WOW factor with sweeping views over the Derwent river. Beautifully renovated, spacious and bright..couldn't be better. Close to Wrest point and close to an excellent fish and chip cafe for a casual meal. Would definitely stay here again.

'Finding the motel was easy, as it's on a main road out of Hobart CBD. It's located in a quiet area, residential houses adjoining on three sides. Mountain view to Mt Wellington from the balcony side, and opposite the motel is access to waterfront and a short stroll to Wrest Point casino. A 5 minute walk to Sandy Bay Village... More

Great location, rooms are decent size for a family of four, clean new finishes, nice small kitchenette came in handy and the shower was absolutely amazing, lift to all levels is handy and a nice touch, laundry facilities also nice when staying more than a few nights which we did. All in all well equipped convenient and comfortable stay

My husband and I stayed in Sep 14 and will never stay again. We asked for a balcony suite as my husband is a smoker and what we got was straight out of the 70s! The hip bath in the bathroom had such high sides that my husband requested a stool for me to get in and out of the... More

The room was very nice and extremely clean. The process for arriving at night when the office was closed was simple and straight forward. The location is good, with a bus stop to Hobart city centre only a 2 minute walk away. Free wifi which was handy. I would happily stay again.

I was in Hobart overnight and wanted an inexpensive hotel with guaranteed parking. This was a great choice. My room was on the third floor - refurbished rooms with excellent heating, lots of warm bedding, and a view of snowy Mount Wellington and of the Derwent River/Wrestpoint Casino. I booked through the Qantas website after booking my flight and received... More
