“The Foreshore Tavern Accommodation is excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2012

We stayed in the Foreshore motel rooms in March 2012 and we were very impressed. The Queen room we booked was lovely, the bathroom was spacious and clean and the service was fantastic. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a well priced and lovely motel close to most major attractions in the Hobart area.

Room Tip: If possible I would ask for a room in the second row back from the tavern as they have a better view...

We overnighted here at the Foreshore Tavern, Lauderdale before our following day flight from Hobart airport. An internet deal gave us a price of A$90 for the night, including a continental breakfast delivered to the room fridge on the evening of our stay. Which was great value for such a pleasant stay.

The hotel overall, looks modern or well renovated, with the motel type rooms being very new and modern. The rooms are 2 blocks of single storey buildings, with car parking out from of each room. Handy to back the car up near the door, open the boot and unload straight into the room.

The room consisted of comfortable queen size bed, single bed, long low wall unit with area for suitcase, small cupboard (with toaster, tea, coffee, etc supplies), bar fridge and 2 chairs for writing at. On the wall was a flat style tv with all free to air digital channels. Large floor to ceiling window and glass door, let light in with the door opening on to a small enclosed verandah. Good curtains provided a barrier from the morning sun. A feature painted wall behind the beds is a nice touch. Air conditioning is provided in the room, which is rare in many Tasmanian hotels.

Bathroom was spotless, with floor to ceiling marble tiles, quality toilet, glass door to shower alcove and sink sitting atop a bench. Quality shampoo and conditioner provided along with motel type, tiny soaps.

My only negatives, which are minor, there is no soap holder at the bathroom sink, so the soap either slides around on the bench, or becomes a plug in the sink. Also it would be nice to see a couple of nice prints/pictures on the walls.

The rooms are located away from the main hotel and it was quiet in the room overnight, providing for a good sleep.

I enjoyed staying here and would be happy to do again.
