We stayed at the Argosy motor Inn in March 2014 ....It was very reasonable and so convenient when we had just arrived off the Spirit of Tasmania.......... 2 mins drive! We were tired and don't want to have to drive anyway at 7.30pm . On arrival the reception staff member was welcoming and efficient. They had a lovely huge bistro... More

Sorry you had a cold night Lyn & guess you would notice it more than most, being from Darwin. Many of our rooms have been renovated & we do have two 'standards' of accommodation, so yes - it does pay to ask a few questions when making your reservations. thank you for staying with the Argosy More

The Argosy is an old motel located close to the Devonport-Melbourne ferry terminal but even closer to the Bass Highway! The rooms are 70s style motel layout but were clean and tidy. Bathrooms need a refresh but there was plenty of good hot water and the bed was quite comfortable. Parking is available right in front of your room and... More

Three of us stayed here overnight as we had an early sailing with the Spirit of Tasmania across to Melbourne. The accommodation needs updating but the lady in reception said they are progressively refurbishing the units. We were in one of the rear units so the street traffic did not bother us. Once in a while we could hear the... More

Absolutly disgracefuf, staff lack any personality, meal was a disgrace could not recommend this establishment if I was paid to. Need to get some decent chefs who can cook. Terribly slow service, would be equal to the worst dining experience one could imagine.

After staying here on our Tassie trip three years ago, and finding it good value, we decided to use it again on our recent March 2014 trip. Clean, Friendly Staff, reasonably priced, excellent bistro, and excellent location for our needs. Not only was the bistro extremely good value, service was excellent, and our 3yo Son has never seen such an... More

Room was clean and comfortable but bathroom was very small and unpractical. The rooms are very dated and are in need of modernisation. Checking in was a bit of a hassle- staff could not even print me a receipt. Over all not too bad.

We apologise if there were issues when you were checking in. If payment is made on arrival it is policy to issue a receipt. The bathrooms are smaller on our older rooms, however we consider they are priced accordingly. Thank you for visiting us. More

Food is boring, uninspiring and not worth the money you pay. We went during the school holidays to take advantage of the kids dinner special and play area - this is about the only worthwhile reason for going. I would rate the children's $2 meals better than my $24 chicken filo with veg - Cold, dry, creamy potato, peas, corn... More
