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

It's a motel and that's it. Nothing big nothing special. Some of the staff can be bit grumpy but than there is the view, which is spectaculair over the old prison. A good place to have a drink with a view, but the rooms are oldish and can use an upgrade.

Look this isn't a 5 star motel so don't expect it. It's basic, but our rooms (interconnecting family) were neat and clean - plenty of space - bathroom tidy overall perfectly adequate for an overnight stay. You have direct access to the Historic Site via a keyed gate which was handy as we did the ghost tour.

An older motel, but that added to its charm. Our room was not large, and only had room for one chair, so it was in to bed for tv. The owner was very friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast was included in our tariff, and even though there were only a few people staying (it was late August), a full... More
