My mantra "It was only $100 a night". Our Chalet had a plaque proudly stating it was opened in 1986. The decor has not changed since (only $100 a night!). But management proudly state that their motel rooms have been updated, how I wish we were in one of those. The bed in our chalet was dreadful, 3 nights of... More

We stayed here many years ago but friends stayed earlier this year and by the sounds of these reviews nothing has changed much. Its not an upmarket place to stay but you only have to sleep there and it close to everything I suppose. The restaurant was very average but it is close to the accommodation so that's a bonus...

We arrived , and were seated right near the bar , well away from the fire , there were only 2 other tables occupied .The room was a... More

I chose this place off the internet – not much choice of accommodation in Port Arthur from what I could see. I was a little disappointed when we got there. Room wasn’t clean and there were cobwebs too  It was only for one night and it was cheap and cheerful. I don’t think id stay here again but it... More

Its a great location to visit Port Arthur but Im afraid there is not many other great things. Pillows very old and lumpy, as was the bed. Walkways and balconies quite old and need refreshing. Restaurant did not have a great feel about it and staff were not rude but not approachable either. Quiet location. Was keen to go for... More

Upon arrival we waited for 15mins at the reception counter for service. The only staff member we could see was serving/talking to about 6 other patrons at bar - she looked at us several times and we received no acknowledgement. I don't think it should take 15mins to serve 6 people, it seemed quite plain that she did not want... More

We had stayed previously & opted to stay again with our travelling companions due to the location close to the Port Arthur Historic site. The staff were pleasant & helpful, we stayed in the 2 bedroom unit at the back of the complex beside the Honeymoon suite & found the walls quite thin late at night. Our unit was clean... More

A bit dated I would not stay here again for a few reasons. The floor is in need of repair and quite bumpy, the bathroom sliding door sticks and all decor is very old and dated. The customer service in restaurant is very ordinary, while the owner is nice enough they lack effort and seem very unsure. There are gaps... More

My wife and i had a very enjoyable meal, our meals were beautifully cooked and the amount was huge. We had sticky date for dessert and it was the best we have ever eaten. Good value for money. We will be going back again.

We decided to stay here for one night because of its proximity to Port Arthur and we are so pleased we did. The room rate was quite reasonable, the room itself was comfortable with a lovely view out over the waterway at the rear of the complex. As an added bonus, on a stroll around the grounds we came across... More
