Enjoyed our stay here very much, had 3 nights to explore the area and found the motor inn to be exactly what we wanted: not expensive, clean, comfortable room, friendly service and good food at reasonable prices. Perfectly located overlooking Port Arthur historic site, sitting on the deck with a wine enjoying the views is a fantastic way to wind... More

Stayed 2 nights mid June 2014..Room was extremely clean and very cosy.. Lady at reception was more than helpful. Location perfect for exploring the ruins of Port Arthur. We purchased a package which included a dinner, we were so impressed with meal we went back the next night. Great service.

Chose the two day package and was pleased with the value. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff and the dinner we had was tasty. It was the middle of winter but the heater kept the room warm. We were both very pleased and plan to stay longer next time.

Port Arthur Motor Inn is located right on the park. We bought a package which included continental breakfast, dinner, park entry and ghost tour. The food was superb and the staff were so friendly. We only had to walk from our rooms to the gate at the motor inn and enter Port Arthur tourist park.

We stayed at the motor inn and chose to do so as part of a package which provided entry to a ghost tour at the site and dinner before hand. The price we paid was reasonable and the value expected. The two saving graces are the location of the motor inn to the site and the male manager who was... More

So the rooms are dated and basic but the showers run full of hot water and the beers pumps full of draught. Audrey runs a tight ship... Playing receptionist, bar tenders, house keeping and cook! Location is perfect for visiting the historical site... If I'm being honest, the more recent dark history detracts from the cultural experience. Do your pre... More

Port Arthur Motor Inn has some great packages available. They put one together for me as a solo traveller and I was very happy with the price. The room was basic but clean and had great heating. The dinner I had at their restaurant was nice but on busy nights like when I was there, they could definitely benefit from... More

I don't know why the tap water has yellow color. The white plastic kettle has black color inside maybe due to the water. Also, the spoon in guest room has rust on it. I've stayed for 1 night at Saturday, June 7th 2014 with my family, and never stayed at any other hotels in Port Arthur before. So, I can't... More
