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

The motel is about 1km out of town but steeply uphill, so a car is certainly needed if you are going to eat in town and then get back to the motel. Friendly greeting and smooth check in. The room was large and had everything you needed (fridge/microwave/flat screen TV) but it was sorely in need of refurbishment. It's all... More

The Mayfair has an old world charm which is sadly missing from most modern motels. Very spacious rooms with a queen and single bed, ( the most comfortable bed I have slept in for years) and a large flat screen television. The bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. A small refrigerator with a jug of real milk, tea and coffee... More

We were a little intrigued on checking in that we were going to be staying in a house at the back of the Mayfair. It turned out to be a late 70's / early 80's red brick veneer house which deflated our excitement momentarily but, once we got in & settled we realised that it was a really comfy, family... More
