When planning a visit to Port Arthur I decided to stay at the Port Arthur Motor Inn. The Port Arthur Motor Inn has received mixed reviews on Tripadviser and from my perspective I believe many to be unfair. The Port Arthur Motor Inn is an older style motel typical of what you find around rural Australia. It does not market... More

Great value, we paid only 98 for the night in high season. Accommodation is clean and basic - standard motel, and a bit dated. Receptionist was cheery and helpful. Good place to stay overnight if traveling around on a budget. We didn't eat at the motel.

The hotel is right next to the port arthur historic ruins so it's very convenient if you want to visit. However, we were led to believe by one of the staff members (during two separate conversations) and from reading the guest information book in the room that our room key gave us access to walk around the port arthur grounds....

We found this to be a really convenient accommodation option for exploring port Arthur. The motel grounds go straight on to the site and you can purchase tickets there too. It was good to be able to spend all day at the site knowing there was no drive ahead. We had dinner there too. Book ahead to get a window... More

Stayed here 1 night. Arrived in the afternoon and used the access to the historic site to wander around before our dinner and ghost tour. The dinner was nothing fancy, but was quite good. The breakfast was ok, but the eggs had run out and were not refilled, so we only had cereal and toast. The room was clean and... More

The location makes this motel the only reason to visit. Food in restaurant was beyond bad, and service was average. Wine was quite good which I needed to numb the pain of the price of the terrible food! Hopefully I can find somewhere else to eat breakfast tomorrow so as to avoid the restaurant for round two

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
