We spent a night here in March 2015 and we were very impressed. The room was excellent, very clean, spacious and well presented. Only a short walk to the local pub for a delicious meal. We would happily stay here again when traveling in Tasmania. Highly recommended.

We visited Ross over Easter during our tour of Tassie. Its a great stopover point between Hobart and Launceston ... beautiful bridge to visit just before sunset, and a pretty town where time has stood still. This motel (attached to the caravan park) is clean and very well located by the river - a very pleasant stay.

At $34/night grossly overpriced. 2 toilets,2 showers(coin operated), 1 washing machine, 1 dryer(doesn't work) and a dusty site! Amenities were clean. It's a pity for the town of Ross that the caravan park will not encourage the travelling public to stop and spend time in the town, which is solely a tourist town.

We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the Ross Caravan Park. The dryer in the laundry that was not working during your stay with us has now been repaired but there was a sign on the dryer advising that the Motel would be more than happy to do any drying that might have been required...

We spend one night here, and the motel room was immaculate and was nicely furnished. Austar was available. It is very close to the main street of Ross and if you cut through the caravan park you find the local pub with a 5 min walk. We would happily stop here again if ever pass that way again.

We went to the Ross Motel on recommendation from friends. The Motel suits the character of the town and is situated on a quiet street beside a river that is spanned by a historic bridge. Great local shops and eateries. The manager was a good humoured man and sort to compensate us for a less than ideal stay of 2... More

Hi - we are really sorry that your experience at the Ross Motel didn't live up to your expectations but we are really pleased that you have pointed out the issues to us.

We were recommended the Ross Motel by the Tasmania Tourism Centre in Hobart as Ross was the perfect half way point to Launceston. What a lovely place. We arrived earlier than expected and could check in straight away which we appreciated. The room had free WIFI, was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and approachable. It is also within... More

We only had one night at this wonderful motel. It was clean, very comfortable, quiet and perfectly positioned. We were supplied with a continental breakfast in the room. We walked all over Ross town and surrounds from here. Had we known we would've stayed longer, as there is so much to see in this area. Perfect!

This property is approx 10 years old and still looks in immaculate condition. My room looked very smart and was well equipped. Also a very smart clean bathroom. My room also had a view of the river. No food service at the motel but it is only a few minutes walk to the centre. 2 bakeries serve great breakfast snacks.... More

On top of my priorities for a good motel are a quiet, dark room and a comfortable bed. Ross Motel scores 110% here and 100% for everything else. Add a quiet walk around a historic and interesting town and it all makes for a great stay. Strongly recommended.

Our room was very well appointed and very clean. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. We stayed for three nights and Ross was a great base for discovering the area. Would definitely recommend this motel to friends.
