We were booked to sail from Devonport the next morning, so it was excellent to be so close to the Spirit of Tasmania. Only one night, with an evening meal and breakfast the following day. The room faced the water. For a one night stay it was sufficient.

Booked this motel as it was right next to the spirit of Tasmania ship. We had a king room, but it was very small and most disappointing was the king bed had the big gap in the middle where two single beds join, they need to rectify this problem. Parking was a problem when we were told we could park... More

From the outside, like everyone has said, the hotel is scary. Looks like perhaps it is used for very short term hire (if you get my drift). The room I had was small, a little tired but clean enough and had everything you would want. The service was outstanding and the basic pub food was brilliant, worth every cent and... More

We ate dinner at the Bistro & I can honestly say it was the best meal we have had in our 2 weeks in Tassie. I read the reviews & went with trepidation but it was close to the caravan park so gave it a go. Decor was lovely & modern, menu was comprehensive, meal sizes were huge & absolutely... More

I was booked here when I visited Devonport for work. The rest of my work party stayed at The Gateway (a true hotel) & for some odd reason, I ended up at the Edgewater. Best way to describe Edgewater is a Pub/motel. First bit of advice - if you are flying into Devonport airport - book your taxi ahead of... More

Edgewater is not flash. It is basic, roomy, clean, well serviced, comfortable, quiet, and a decent laundry. It also has facilities in the rooms that allow guests to look after themselves if they don't want to go to the very friendly pub food restsurant. Don't whinge, it is reasonably priced for what it is. It is lovely to be so... More

Rolling up I could help but think I had booked a motel that rents rooms by the hour, but with clean rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff and right next to the spirit of tasmania I was pleasantly surprised.

My wife freaked when she saw the place from the outside - we almost kept driving, even though we had already paid! The room was ok, but it is (IMHO) on the "wrong" side of the river - if we had stayed on the other side, we could have waklked around the city. Functional, but basic.
