This hotel is right on Port Arthur, walk straight through the gate, very comfortable, free bottles of water, great view whilst having a great dinner, nothing real flash about this hotel, but good accommodation the thickest towels, ever go again will stay here and really enjoyed the late wander through the gardens of Port Arthur late afternoon, very reasonable price...

My partner and I stayed here recently. We stayed in the Officers Row which had over look of the Port Arthur site. The room, while small, was clean and comfortable. It was very basic, but you are not visiting the area to stay in the room. The Inn also had a restaurant which served basic pub food and local seafood.... More

Stayed here doing the package, day pass / ghost tour/ accommodation & dinner. Room is nothing fancy but comfortable and has a split system for heating & cooling. Service from Audrey & husband is typical good old fashioned country hospitality. Dinner was OK at best, had 300 Gram Porterhouse Steak, mine was under cooked and wife's was about 150 grams.... More

We stayed here for one night on a package deal to see Port Arthur. At first we didn't know what to expect, so when we booked Audrey from the Motor Inn explained everything that was included. To our surprise we were offered the ghost tour, 2 course Dinner (which was very tasty) day tour of the site as well as... More

really close to walk into Port Arthur but rooms are very small and basic, bed was extremely uncomfortable, hard springs and making a lot of noise, we had 2 x rooms between 2 couples and fridge was not working in 1 room. Glad it was only a 1 night stay to visit the ghost tour. Dinner meal was fantastic

not a 5 star accommodation but very much 5 star for service, attitude and helpfulness. would recommend to all. and what a fabulous site for History if you are into that (Port Arthur I mean). country setting, plenty of local walks available, nice setting with local wildlife (safe) in view of the dining area.

Stayed for two nights. Staff were lovely and extremely helpful. Rooms were just basic. A microwave would be good in the rooms though. Other then that you have great views from restaurants and from your room depending what room you get. Not to mention their resident ghost that likes to make an appearance or two making things happen in your... More
