Perfect location to discover the Port Arthur Historic Site. Hotel is literally on the back of the site, providing easy walking access to the site for all day and night tours. Staff were extremely friendly and willing to assist where they could. The room we stayed in was quite dated. Bathroom was quite awkward in it's layout. We were after... More

Room was not overly clean, restaurant had dirty chairs, main meal and dessert had to go back, not as ordered, they did fix it up promptly without fuss. Location was great in relation to the Historic site.

The location and view of the hotel is a must stay over other option in Port Arthur. You can actually see the historical site right in front of you from the main dining room. The dinner was quite nice but a bit pricy and the waitress apparently needs more training because she doesnt know what the food on the menu... More

My family and I dined here on a very busy night it seemed, I must commend the staff that were on ,as they were very short staffed on the night, as told in conversation with the manager, we did wait a short while for our meals, under the circumstances we understood and were happy to enjoy the view whilst we...

We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Rooms were spacious clean and comfortable. Ideal location for visiting the Port Arthur Historic site as hotel guests have special access to the property. Not a good idea to walk back to your room alone after a ghost tour though! Great value for money.

After a fantastic full day at the Port Arthur site, we had one night in this motel. The staff in the office were welcoming and efficient. The room was older style however it was clean and presentable but the hall and room smelt of some (cleaning?) chemical which was pretty unpleasant. The room and bed were comfortable. Inclusions were basic,... More

the only problem we had upon arrival( 3pm) was reception was closed and we had to go into the bar, to find someone to check in, once this was done, our room was bigger than what we were expecting as once again we opted for a cheaper room, the bed was very comfy and having access to the historic site...

Rooms are clean but outdated and are of an average size for a motel of this type. Staff were friendly enough without being over the top. Location is fantastic with access to the back gate of the historic site provided with your room key. Only disappointment was the restaurant. Breakfast was what we expected for $10 and we really appreciated... More

It was great location, easy walk to and from Port Arthur historic site. I liked the fact I had a gate key. The room was basic and clean, but in all met with expectations. The staff were friendly enough, having said that I only spoke when we checked in and checked out.
