We drove past this motel on a few different visits to Hobart and I tried not to get my hopes up about it's mid century facade with big glass windows complete with egg chair near the entrance. Surely too good to be true. But after some online research I discovered it's an actual untouched 1950s gem, with amazing original teak... More

The rooms are very basic with no hooks in bathroom to hang clothes and only a suction attached small towel rail that falls off even when only a small hand towel is placed on it. No shelf for toiletries and the window louvres are set in a semi open position making it cold when showering. Only 3 coathangers in the... More

This hotel is cheap and in a really really great location. We returned here after staying at Blue Hills last year because the location is so perfect. The hotel is nothing special, but we're not the type of people that want fancy stuff. Just a nice bed, clean room, good bathroom etc. Everything was cleaned each day and the staff... More

Great location for Salamanda Markets and dock area and city. Inconvenient parking and also steps to lug luggage into foyer and upstairs rooms. No lift. Basic plain room, clean. Close to traffic noise on road. Would have appreciated a toaster and crockery in the room and even a microwave.

We stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed our stay, so when we were returning to Hobart to did a bit of a look around for accommodation and found that Blue Hills Motel was still the best value for money by a long way!
