It was fine for a night and was clean which many places in Tasmania are not. Cooking utensils are basic. Microwave, weird little grill/oven that takes forever and 2 little hobs. Main bedroom was comfortable. Problems are it is right next to the main road and juggernaughts do use it. They started at 5.30am! The doors and windows are not sealed and there are big gaps, making it not only draughty but allowing a million moths in. The kitchen was just swarming with them from 9pm onwards, meaning you had to sit in the dark to stop more coming in.
If you just need somewhere for a night or 2 and aren't going to spend most of your time there then it is fine.
