Checked into the motel, opened the door of our room and almost died at how dated, ugly and gross the room was. It also stank old and musty. The towels supplied were incredibly old and tattered and looked like they were about 50 years old. The sheets were rank, looked like sheets from the 50's and were so old they... More

Staff were excellent, room was nice but there was no wifi or internet access of any sort which is pretty poor these days, intermittent phone signal in the area (not the Motor Inn's fault, I have complained to Telstra but been fobbed off). Room was clean and tidy, however there are old emergency evacuation procedures on the wall asking you... More

We stayed on 22nd of November in 2013 and I called them to book for the night during the day. She was very nice over the phone. The lady met me at the reception but had to run to serve at the bar as well, when she learned that we were three single students 2F1M staying over she even gave... More

We stayed in room 21 - the last at the end of the building. I was savaged by fleas - dozens of bites. I suspect that someone asked for that end room to bring their dog in and let it sleep on the bed. The meal was so basic it rates as high school cooking class level at best. The... More

I travel extensively and stay regularly at hotel and motel accommodation in Aus and around the world both for business and pleasure, I feel I have a sound knowledge of what it takes to run a good motel. These guys ticked all the boxes during our stay, some comments posted here are clearly made by people who have no idea... More

Wanting to spend a romantic weekend with my fiancee I booked and prepaid for premium accommodation with expectations of wonderful views of the historical site. Instead we had views of silverbirch trees obscuring any view of Port Arthur and any view was only of a couple of roof tops. Our stay went from bad to worse. The noise emitting from... More

Room 1 was clean and comfortable. Little could be seen of the historical site. Very noisy room as the HWS must be located immediately outside to service all the rooms at all hours. We'd arrived at 6.30pm after a long trip and were looking forward to a meal in the restaurant. Although the restaurant seemed empty we were told that... More

We spent two nights here. It's very simple, but the room is comfortable, clean and neat. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom small but clean and tidy. Great shower pressure. There are no telephones; small t.v; tea and coffee facilities. We chose this site because it is the only Motel that is on the Port Arthur Historical site. If you purchase tickets... More

My husband & I booked a Port Arthur Ghost tour package which consisted of one nights accommodation, a two course meal & a nightly guided ghost tour. The Hotel sits high on the hill overlooking the Port Arthur penal settlement site. First impression of the hotel was very old & rundown, but very clean none the less. Our room had... More

Researching the internet for an overnight stay on a Saturday night, I found some distressing feedback on this venue. As it was for an overnight stay, my husband and I booked a room in the "Officers block" with low expectations. Upon arrival the reception was closed as reported by others on tripadvisor. This was unfortunate but not devastating. We found... More
