“Thanks for a great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in January 2013. Our stay was enhanced by the fantastic service we received, not only in the motel itself but in planning our activities. Our room was clean bright and judging by the way the cleaning staff were working in adjoining room, room presentation is given a high priority.
Thank you for ensuring a great visit to the area and a particular thanks to Melissa.

Room Tip: Since all rooms face the waterfront they were all in a great position.

Hi BarbaraL

Thanks so much for your comments about your stay with us. I will be pleased to pass on the feedback to the housekeepers as they really do take every effort to make the room just right. I've even heard them debating the best angle to put the compendium for maximum guest appeal and ease of use! So yes, they take their jobs seriously and will be very happy to hear that it was noticed.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your feedback.
Hopefully, we will see you this way again soon

Regards
Cyndia

We were in a family room (Queen bed + single bed), which would sleep 3 adults, with views of the river. Room was small and had a mini fridge and a microwave. Ensuite was clean and had a shower cubicle. Toiletries were provided. We purchased wireless internet in the room for $7.50 for a day and internet connection was fast. Breakfast was good with quite a variety. The manager is very friendly. No issues with check-in and check-out. Good value for money.

Hi dashYac

Thanks for your comments on your stay with us. We are delighted you felt we offered good value for money as we do really try to offer our guests good value and an enjoyable experience. Whilst being an older style motel our rooms are a bit smaller in comparison to modern hotels, we nevertheless aim to make them as functional, comfortable and clean as possible.

Thanks again for taking the time to post a review.

It is obvious that the owners take every care in making their guests feel at home, little details such as chocolate drink, director chair, tissue papers and entertainment. We stayed one night and borrowed their kayaks to paddle in the river, and watched the sunset. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is worth a return visit.

Hi antonyT

Thanks for the feedback on your stay. I am so pleased you took the kayaks out that night as it was really picturesque and you got front row seats! Next time you will have to take the bikes!

Look forward to seeing you again some time

Only stayed one night but found this motel to be very nice.

The rooms are equiped to a high standard and really clean. Our rate included Continental buffet breakfast which was one of the best we had on our Aus. trip - cheese, fruit, cereals, juice, toast, crumpets, pastries, etc etc. Wifi was free in the lounge/dining room.

Staff were really pleasant and welcoming. Lovely position by water.

Hi westmoreland

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Brekkie is our main thing and I always try to make it as scrummy as possible! I'm so pleased you enjoyed it and our property. As for the cleaning, our cleaners are a crack squad who have been with us for years and take a lot of pride in what they do! Very little escapes their eagle eyes!

Hope the rest of your trip to tassie was enjoyable!

Cyndia

I have always liked this little motel. It is just one of those places that appeals. I quite often did work trips up that way and stayed there whenever it wasn't booked out.
Nice comfortable, quite place to stay with happy helpful staff.
What more could you want for a good nights sleep?

Room Tip: All rooms face the river. I have stayed in most of them and they are all good.

They say the Sequel is never as good as the Original, well after a one night stay eartlier this year we vowed to come back for a longer stay which we have just completed and "The Waterfront" at Wynyard delivered with flying colours. The Owners of this Motel must be heartily congratulated on their wonderful, professional, young staff members who were in charge whilst they were away. The room,beds, linen, little extras, cleanliness and yummy breakfasts were exemplary. We dined in-house twice for dinner and whilst the menu is simple the food is top class, fresh, tasty, plentiful and well presented this was also complimented with some lovely Tasmanian wine. Room service is also available. This Motel is a "little gem", if anyone can find fault here then all we can say is that they are extremely hard to please and perhaps wouldn't be happy anywhere! Thankyou so much for making our stay so delightful. Barbara and Kevin

Room Tip: Go Deluxe, not that expensive and the little extras are a treat!!
