Great location. Friendly staff and very clean room with comfy beds. Stayed with 3 kids and there was heaps of room. Pizzas for dinner were amazing and we all loved them. Pillows are comfy and I'm very fussy! A better place to stopover than anywhere in Strahan. Check out the legendary oval next door and the museum too.

Checked in late afternoon; reception was good and the guy scribbled on a map to give us an idea of what's what around town. Dinner wasn't being served this night which was a bugger because that's why I booked the place. They were doing their pizza and fish 'n' chip take away menu though. We headed to another restaurant at... More

We stopped in Queenstown on our way through for 1 night and were just looking for budget accommodation to put our heads down. On arriving here we were given an upstairs room that was large and clean with the heating already on. The bed was very comfy and to top it off they make pizzas that can be purchased at... More

This bathroom of this motel is not accessible for a wheelchair user. I had pre-booked and was told that the shower was a large one - my partner who uses a manual wheelchair and a shower chair was not able to access it. We had to go and find another hotel. Staff were polite about us not staying.

I stayed with 6 mates last week on a motorcycle trip. I found the owner to be rude and felt like we weren't really welcome. He didn't appear to be a fan of motorcyclists. We had to park our bikes a certain way in front of the room ?????? We went to dinner ( smorgasboard ) with a bus tour... More

Husband & I arrived dripping & soaking wet on motorcycles (understatement of the year!). No problem at all to them. All staff & management most helpful and friendly. Big plus for the heater on in the room. Were told that they had a buffet dinner available with the bus clients and it was excellent. Room and fittings etc were fine.... More

Like many country towns in Tasmania, Queenstown is very isolated and the motel was a welcome oasis for a comfortable stay which was reasonably priced. This was our second ever stay in a motel and the standard of accommodation was better than what we expected. There was a sofa and a small table with 2 chairs as well as a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The West Coaster Motel, situated in Queenstown on Tasmania's West Coast, is a 60 room, recently purchased, family run property and a perfect base to come back to after exploring the rich history of this unique part of Tasmania. 5 minutes walk to the ABT Wilderness Train Station, the Galley museum and the centre of town, you will enjoy the newly upgraded rooms from the modern Superior rooms with ipod docking clocks, to the warm Deluxe ground floor rooms, the convenient kitchenettes and the spacious 2 Bedroom Suite complete with king bed. All rooms have new linen and bedding, flat screen TV and DVD players, Mini bars & Room Service, Tea & Coffee, hairdryers. Queenstown has also had a complete overhaul of the water system and now delivers clean, clear water to all its residents and visitors alike (we have purchased white linen to prove this!). Enjoy a beer or wine in front of the fire in our Lounge/Bar then settle in to either the buffet dinner or select from the a la carte menu for a delicious home cooked, affordable meal. Book your train or Gordon River cruise direct with us and see what else our region has to offer from our helpful staff and brochure stand. We welcome you to the West Coaster and hope you have a pleasant stay with us. ... more   less
