An older hotel but this is right on the site of the Port Arthur Historical Site. Rooms are dated but clean and beds OK. The restaurants meals were very nice and continental breakfasts offered for just $10. We were only booked in for one night but while we were looking at the Historical Site we realized we needed two days... More

We got a package deal with a meal, ghost tour and the room. Food was good and tour was enjoyable. Overpriced drinks ( $8.50 for local tap beer ). The room was just horrid. The old mattress and tiny bathroom was terrible. It appeared that no effort or money had been spent on this place and in such a great... More

An overly eager manageress ordered us into the bar to check us in, while shouting instructions at us. Do this and don't do that and if you want to eat you have to book, which we did and without going into details....it was not the stay we had hoped for. The food is very basic, the steak burned on one... More

Well located older style motel which also doubles as the hotel in town. No noise carried to rooms which are adequate size but dated. Close to historic sites snd the water. Good meal in dining room also. Family run business.

Un-renovated room. Not quite clean. Previous people's toothpaste all over taps! Service minimal. Great position at the back gate of Port Arthur itself. This place needs to promote the fact that the room key provides access to the grounds of Port Arthur itself. This is its unique selling point, so the management needs to inform guests when booking rather than... More

Port Arthur Motor Inn is the best location for visiting and access to the historical site. Our room was in Officers Row and we purchased the 2 night Tasman Peninsula experience. This is an older motel but our room was very clean and comfortable with views out over the lawns and historical site. As we had direct access to the... More

We would all agree that it is a convenient location if you want to walk to the historical site; however, for about +100 Dollars a night, you could find much better few kilometres away. The bathroom is rudimental. Not impressed. And you can clearly hear your neighbours. The day of our arrival the customer service was just basic but the... More

This was a nice motel with direct access to the Port Arthur Historical site. Our room was comfortable with 2 bottles of complimentary water. The outlook was nice overlooking the lawn area. Bedding was very good as was the bathroom. Good water pressure in the shower. Check in was efficient. We had free wifi but we had to use it... More

From the minute I stood waiting to check in I knew not to expect any friendliness but I didn't expect the blatant rudeness that I witnessed and then had to experience. The woman checking in guests is completely in the wrong job and has no clue as to what good customer service is. Then to top it off the racist... More
