I have been staying at this hotel during my travels over the past 10 years. I keep coming back because the hotel provides a professional service, excellent rooms and bedding and is located in a quiet street that allows me to work without noise. This hotel is clean and the room and hotel facilities are exactly what I'm looking for... More

Stayed here at start and end of Tassie holiday after travelling across on the ferry. Weather was quite hot and with no air conditioning in room, sleep was difficult. To my surprise, no insect screens on front windows, so air flow was only possible if you didn't mind the insects. When I questioned the owner why no screens, he responded... More

We spent 11 nights at Barclay. We found it to be very out dated and depressing, as it was work related we didn't have a choice but to stay. First night room 17 partied until 2am so we had to call manager, he was prompt and quietened them down. Another problem we had was the toilet only having one button... More

Three of us recently stayed in the three bedroom cottage. It is actually a house situated across the road from the motel. It has been simply and nicely renovated, and has the most beautiful country garden, full of flowering plants. Everything is supplied in the kitchen you could need and there is also a barbecue and outdoor entertaining area outside.... More

I stayed here while on a motorcycle tour around Tasmania. Level ground and can park right outside the room. The room service hot breakfast is excellent quality and value. The rooms are clean and well presented. Customer service is very good. I will certainly stay there again next time I’m in Devonport.

We recently state here nice motel and in a good position, walking distance to town. Although I did not swim there is a nice looking in door pool and mini tennis court. The main downside of this place was the smell of vomit in the bathroom and one of the bedrooms. When we checked in we did not notice this... More

Stayed for one night and were very happy with our accommodation. Breakfast was great, nicely cooked! Have been in tassie for 4 days now and that was the best breakfast regarding taste, quality and price! Staff (male) was very helpful and allowed us to check in earlier as we were tired after our very rocky crossing on the ferry! We... More

Planning ahead for a Sunday evening arrival from Melbourne with 'Spirit of Tasmania' a couple of self-catering foot passengers face a problem....no buses meet the ferry and the riverboat to Devonport doesn't ply its trade on Sundays.
