Like: Value for money, car parked in front, warm room & bathroom, nice restaurant with fireplace, clean. USP: conveniently next to the Historic Site. Audrey was especially helpful & friendly. Not-so-good: a bit dated, but not an issue at all for the price paid.

Room was pleasant, clean and comfortable. Really well situated if visiting Port Arthur Penal Colony as the back gate of the site is next to the main entrance. Staff were mostly friendly, Continental breakfast reasonable but the coffee was crap.

The rooms are basic and the bathrooms dated, but they are also very clean and cosy.The staff are very friendly and the continental breakfast was good value,the position is perfect for visiting the historical site. We visited through the day then checked in to the hotel. A relaxing drink in the on site bar and then a lovely dinner at... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Close proximity to Port Arthur site is a great help. Easy access to site from a private gate. Onsite restaurant was of good standard but a bit pricey for pub style food. Beds were very firm but pillows ok. Toilet was blocked for our stay and shower very difficult to turn off so it leaked... More

Location, Location, Locarion! You couldnt ask for easier access to this beautiful historic site. Out the door, through the gate and you are on the grounds. The rooms are lovely. The bed, very comfortable. The bathroom, light and roomy. The shower, however! If they are going for that claustrophobic feeling of a Port Arthur prison cell, they have nailed it.... More

We stayed here for two nights, we hadn't book just rocked up. We were given the last room available which was the spa room.. their best room! The motel is a little dated (added to the charm, i thought) but well maintained and very clean rooms serviced every day, staff very friendly and Audrey is a hoot! Absolute perfect location,... More

We stayed here overnight and did not find it eye-catching! Our room was small-sized and furniture were quite old. Mattress was not comfortable either. There were a few rooms in a row - just back to back- and you could here others walking, talking, etc. Car space is just in front of your door; so your rest can easily get... More

We had a package pass which included food, accomodation and site entry. Accomodation was clean and very simple, quite old. The water is yellow and smelly but this is no fault of the hotel! This is anatural occurance and is fine to drink. Private gate to historic site but not great views. Food was excellent and home made. Owners friendly... More
