The crew at Elphin are great. They're accommodating beyond need and provide a very reliable stay - quiet, good location, clean and with all the amenities. If there are any short comings, it's only that the place is a little dated. But they never disappoint and are super helpful.

The staff at lphin were excellent and as helpful as can be. The room was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our four days there. The hotel is easy walking distance to the galleries and museums. Beware of people making false complaints this is an excellent business well run.

We booked in to stay for 6 nights in April because it advertised fully self contained and free Wi-Fi. Upon arrival we unpacked our ports and were quite satisfied with the room we were given. It quickly became apparent that the Wi-Fi did not work, as soon as you logged on it would drop out. We went to reception to... More

Dear Wendy, I am sorry to read of your disappointment during your recent stay at Elphin Villas. We did have issues with our Wi-Fi during April dropping in and out in which we have installed 2 new receivers to overcome the brick exterior walls interfering. In regards to the shower pressure/blocked shower head, I can only apologize for the inconvenience.... More

The room was nice and quiet but had not been updated in years... Felt like I stepped back in time to the 70s.. I had to call the hotel because I paid in advance then was charged again on checkout. They should have noticed that I paid twice. Maybe they thought they could get away with it?

Dear Terence, Thank you for your review although I am a little confused with your reference to our motel rooms being 70s style as they were only completed after year 2000 and are one of our most popular room styles, especially with our business travellers. My apologies for the second charge upon arrival to our property. I have looked at... More

We travelled with friends for a return visit to this motel as we loved it so much the first time. Unfortunately we could only fit in one night on our trip but it was just as we remembered - fabulous! As luck would have it we got the same upstairs villa as last time, which made it even more special.... More

Five of us stayed in one of their three-bedroom townhouses. It was the best value for money motels/hotels we've stayed in in Tasmania. Room comes with spa, kitchen and comfortable beds. Could not complain. The receptionist was extremely helpful too, showing us places to eat, attractions and places to avoid. Close to city centre and shopping centre literally across the... More

Clean large rooms. Close to town and shopping. Beds were very nice with good night sleep Check in was quick with friendly staff. Air con in room was exelent. Motorbike friendly and off street parking. Only one bad thing was the yapping mutt of a dog next door at 6.00am in the morning. Would stay there again when in Tas

We stayed for one night so we could go to the AFL football. It was perfect. Clean sunny, well equipped and best of all is the location. This was a short drive to Aurora stadium, but was well within walking distance. (That would have avoided the long delays leaving the carpark)A large supermarket is located nearby. With the football, it... More

I recently stayed at the Elphin Villas with my 2 daughters (12 & 8). We booked a two bedroom apartment and were very happy with this accommodation. The room was clean and well maintained with excellent facilities for us to make our own breakfast. The staff were friendly and as I rang and booked I chose a bottom floor apartment... More

In the 36 years of staying in motels this would be the worst. Small, noisy and a definite waste of money. To top it off, theres a night club that rages over the road until 3am in the morning. The old Tassie truly gone for good.

Dear Carol, I am sorry to hear of your disappointment during your recent visit to our property. One of the biggest selling points for our Villas, is our quiet location. I am not sure about your reference to a night club, as there is not one in the area. The closest public venue is the indoor tennis centre. I hope... More
