We stayed there on a Saturday night and was very impressed. We arrived around 10pm and the room had the heater put on for us, as it was cold. The room was clean and modern and very good for a family. We had a standard room that had 2 singles and 1 bunk. I would recoomend this Hotel.

We are regulars at the restaurant here. Highly Recommended. Fresh, quality food with something for everyone. We have all tried steak, seafood and pasta and enjoyed all of it. Good service, small but interesting selection of wines and decent fresh servings of food. We also enjoy desert!

We stayed here on January 3 and 4 in Room 30. Hobart was either booked out or outrageously expensive because of some boat race (!) and Taste of Tassie and we were simply marking time until we could find a home to rent to start our new life in Tasmania. I expected a lot more for $160 per night in... More

Thoroughly enjoyed two nights in deluxe twin room with fabulous view over Kingston and the Derwent Estuary, clean room with small, adequate kitchenette, with toaster, kettle, microwave, utensils, and frig,freezer.Beds were comfortable. Quiet location even though friendly staff warned that there may be noise from the highway to Huonville. Hired a car so 'out of town' location was no problem.... More

Room was only decent. Bed was clean. Cups were not clean. No bread toaster. No microwave. Garden bugs were in my room (i thought they were bed bugs). Shower is small area. Minimum facility. Wifi was given free but inaccessible from my room. You have to walk to the reception to get a better connection. The room has a modem... More

Stayed for two nights and recommend this place to anyone. Rooms were good, definitely clean. Meals, first night battered seafood, excellent 2nd night 500g steak, cooked medium, perfect, think i will have put on weight. Staff were friendly and provided great service, gave us free real milk for our morning coffee, will definitely stay here again

We were very uncomfortable at this Motel NOT really a Hotel. Uncooperative management, ONLY view from room was the roof of the room in front. No comfortable seating, TV in wrong place, had to move table and chairs to get into single bed, inadequate shower stall, toilet running constantly. Southern Lights is billed as having views from every room. NOT... More

paid $160 per night in a 3-bed room (1 king bed and a double-deck bed). overpriced and could've found a better/cleaner/bigger/cheaper place to live. What's worse, it's near a tomb grave... No room service on the first day after 10am. Someone (not room attendant) knocked the door at 9ish offering room service, but we were sleeping at that time. So... More
