“Great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We had a great holiday, the kids loved feeding the ducks, the pool, the playground, the BBQ & they loved the special kids meals at the restaurant. The hotel is great value for money & our villa was large & spacious. We had an issue with a sensor light going on during the night, but once we reported it, it was fixed same day. The staff at reception were fantastic & VERY helpful & the food at the resturant was just beautiful. The only negative was that we were in the villa closest to the road, so we had a fair amount of traffic noise, but trees have been planted along the fence line, so as soon as they grow, that issue should fade away. Great stay, thanks so much.

Room Tip: Villa 57 is closest to the road, so gets a bit noisey, the other villas & the motel rooms would...

The room is spacious - comes with a large double bed and single bed, and is clean. The springs in the double bed are not so good anymore and you tend to slide to one side of the bed. It is fully equipped for both hot and cold weather with fan & heater ready in the room. The baggage area has enough space for 2 medium suitcases to be opened at the same time. The toilet and bath area is tight - toilet bowl behind the door and the shower area does not give much elbow room. But the view from the balcony (outside the entrance door) is nice. Lovely to sit out and have a cuppa or a glass of wine. Location wise - very near MONA and Cadbury factory.

Room Tip: Get one of the rooms in the first floor of the main building (ie. your room is directly above the re...

The views from the end of the row of motels is breathtaking with a view over the river to the mountains, we often just sat there with a glass of wine admiring the view.
The Motel Restaurant was excellent if you stuck to the beef dishes and we had a superb filet mignon that would not be affordable in the UK.
The room was a bit dated but very clean and comfortable, we were very pleased overall.

we had two families staying in the riverview house and it was fantastic. a classic, sprawling art deco house complete with centre courtyard and huge windows. the lap pool was a bonus for the kids and was surprisingly warm. reasonably priced and recommended

We found the motel to be clean, easily accessible to Hobart without the Hobart prices, close to MONA and the Cadbury factory. The meals we had at the restaurant were delicious. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location is great too right on the river and cutest ducks to feed. Loved it

Room Tip: The rooms along the river would be awesome plus they also have bigger family cottages to rent

My wife and I stayed for a week at this motel visiting friends and family over Christmas 2013. Our room was an older style motel room but for our purposes very functional. The room looked straight out onto the river and the motel is only some 10-12 minutes from the city centre and 5 minutes from MONA and good value for the price (about $90 per night). There are no flyscreens on the doors or windows so could be hot in the summer--it was relatively cool while we were there. Staff were very friendly. There is also an excellent, well priced restaurant attached to the motel and villas. There is no doubt better accommodation in Hobart but the location and price make it very competitive.

Room Tip: Motel rooms facing the river would be best.

Good location with quick and easy access to all the attractions Hobart has to offer. Some views of the river to be had depending on the unit you are in. Lap pool for the kids to play in was a bonus. However, the unit we stayed in was not clean at all. The walls were scuffed and paint was peeling on the wardrobe door in the main bedroom and two screws/bolts were sticking out of the wall in the lounge room. The kitchen benches were greasy and grimy, there was glass on the carpet found by my youngest child. Kitchen floor was sticky and the overall smell in the kitchenette was that of rotting garbage due to the location of the rubbish bin at the back of the unit - had to keep the windows closed. Sheets in bed were clearly not clean as we found ourselves itching and scratching throughout the night. Very disappointed in the quality and cleanliness of the unit. If they were trying to go for third world shabby chic then they have achieved it.

Room Tip: Don't bother - find another motel.
