It's located on the edge of St Helens. The room was spacious for a family of 3. The wifi did not work in our room. The room was a bit tired but clean and tidy. The place had plenty of space to sit back, have a drink and relax; but it'd be stretching it if you are expecting a "resort"... More

I think this little Motel has had some unfair reviews lately. Yes it is older and wifi is only available in the reception but reception is huge with lounges and borders the restaurant. The rooms are clean and tidy with ample fresh linen. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful would recommend. St Helens is a sleepy town not... More

I booked the special accommodation and dinner deal for my wife and I and we had just come from a suite at the Launceston Country Club but we were not disappointed. Check in was easy and friendly. We opted for drinks on the deck while we used the in house laundry to catch up on our washing. Our "special two... More

After deciding to not stay at our first option in the area we had to make a quick decision to find another accommodation option. So we chose Tidal Waves. Glad we did. We had the whole resort to ourselves!! It was a quick one night stopover so we weren't looking for too much other than good clean and friendly surroundings.... More

We were excited about our east coast getaway. Upon arrival most of our hopes were dashed. How this place has a 4 star rating is beyond me. The restaurant was over priced and the meals average. The wine had obviously been opened some time last week and was undrinkable. The room while large with a niceish view was daggy and... More

was nice to have the Spa, and King size bed, Robes, everything else looked a bit dumpy that's why we paid the extra and stayed here, bit more than I wanted to pay, but you get that sometimes. I would probably stay again

Situated on the waterfront close to the town centre this well maintained property provides a quiet and comfortable stay. Friendly and helpful staff add to the appeal. I stay here regularly for work and am never dissapointed.

This particular hotel may have been a lovely family resort in the 1990's, but it now resembles a dated, dirty, horribly over priced dump. The decor is dated early 90's with plenty of dirt to go with it. The walls and doors are filty and desperately need a wash. There is cob webs hanging from ceiling. The bathroom floor is... More

This was the first place we stayed in on our 2nd trip to Tasmania. The reception was very classy and we were warmly welcomed. The room was comfortable, nicely supplied with usual provisions, very nice bathroom with a spa. The only thing we could fault was the mattress on the bed was a bit too soft for us, a bit... More
