One of the few motels we stayed at which had breakfast included. It's just outside Burnie (5 mins) and is right on the beach. The rocking chair in the room was a nice touch and the bed very comfortable. Overall everything was clean and tidy and priced accordingly. The motel is just across the road from a small inlet which... More

This was our first night of our driving holiday in Tasmania. It had everything we needed and was very reasonably priced. We received a nice, friendly greeting and it wasn't too far from Burnie and places to eat. It was great value budget accommodation.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and the service and friendliness of the reception staff was outstanding. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The motel is very quiet and not too far from a supermarket and a few other shops. We had dinner in the Jetty Restaurant and our meals very excellent, I have to... More

We arrived early to the motel without calling first. I asked if it were possible for us to check in or at least leave our bags. The front desk girl was so friendly and helpful. We checked in and off we went exploring thanks to all the info brochures in the foyer. The room was clean and comfortable, a good... More

Although a quiet venue and very clean, these premises are very tired and in need of renovation. Admittedly there was a new handbasin in the bathroom, but everything else was uninspiring. Very old towels are used when quality towels are so cheap to buy nowadays. The beds were not comfortable and the hot water was so cool that you could... More

Very accommodating people who despite my late arrival time due to flights, prepared and kept a meal for me. This is the type of attention to detail and service most chains forget about. Thank you. Amenities included TV, radio, panel heater (which I needed and was on as I entered the room), towel rail heater that was also on so... More

This is an excellent motel on the bank of the beautiful Cam river, and close to Somerset beach. I've now stayed there twice, and the rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable. The restaurant serves hearty meals. The motel is central to trips to Circular Head (Stanley, Smithton and the Edge of the World) and the West Coast (Strahan and Queenstown).... More

The motel is older style one but with nice, albeit small, rooms that are clean and well maintained and enough updates not to feel dated. Tariff is quite modest considering the standard of the rooms.
