We stayed here for two nights for the football in May. As most reviews have said it is a little bit away from the city centre, about a 10 minute walk down to the centre. The trip back up is a bit of a trek, but we caught a taxi for around $7.00 to save us the walk. The rooms... More

Stayed there for a night in January 2015. The hotel is a little bit away from the city centre but on a quiet street. It was good to see that the period features are nicely retained. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Given that the hotel is at an elevation, one gets a beautiful view as well. Overall, good value... More

We have stayed here before and it did fulfill our needs but the old comfortable beds have been replaced with new ones from readymix. The plumbing is a little noisy, I could tell that the guy above prostate was in good condition. Would I return? probably not I would rather pay a little more and get a bit more perhaps... More

Stayed here because the reviews on Trip Advisor were positive and my preferred options were all booked (due to the Arts festival that was on at the time). I will add another positive review to the list. The motel is a little bit out of the centre of Hobart but within walking distance (I did have a hire car and... More

Good location, walking distance to city and large rooms, however, our room smelt of cigarettes and the additional bed was broken. Also house across road had noisy/abusive men partying for 3 days straight.

Not what expected, we got an upgrade to a huge apartment which was part Irish BB/English home stay. Check in staff we very helpful with late arrival and we got upgraded, so it was great start. They knew the flight was delayed and when we checked in there was milk in fridge and heating was on, nice touch. The apartment... More

This is a motel oozing an old world charm. If you're looking for a homely experience, here's one waiting. High on a hill looking out towards Sandy Bay, you'll find a clean and functional place offering off-street parking. A blast from the past, almost in a time warp. You'll feel instantly at home at a budget to suit.

Receptionist was lovely, even allowed us to use the laundry after hours. Room was nice and clean. It's perched on a hill so we wouldn't recommend walking to and from the city. Very quiet surroundings, definitely had a peaceful stay. Lots of amenities i.e. microwave, oven, hotplates, huge tv with lots of channels to choose from, fridge, nice lounge area... More
