“Unpleasant Stay”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We had the misfortune of paying for this establishment in advance so we were stuck here for two unpleasant nights. It was dirty, smelly and uncomfortable and our complaints were either ignored or fobbed off.

have stayed there once in july,and also once in aug.i was reluctant to go back because of the lady who is ''supposed'' to be running it.she made every mistake in the principals of quality customer service.janelle was v rude and made me feel guilty by even asking for a hairdryer ''god u guys want everything'' (v insulting)which was part of the initial service.i was feeling v uncomfortable even saying ''the heater doesnt work,im so sorry to hassle you''. I was feeling vulnerable after being in hospital,and 2nd time i arrived hoping would be better,first of all the tv didnt work and i had paid my money and needed to lay down and heal,waited 45 mins which was ''ill be there as soon as i can''.after ages,i just politely again asked if i could get tv looked at and Janelle said RUDELY ''i have bigger probs than a tv!''i was assertive and said ''pls,i knw ur busy but can u help me?''she was v flustered as she always appears to be,if not its v obvious that she is passive aggressively condescending and budget should review her performance.btw i am a soc worker working as an emplymnt consultant and very upset when she threw me a key to another rm very rudely. next rm to me had men coming and going ALL NITE- HARD TO REST.

Stayed only one night while waiting to pick up my rental Campervan. The room size was very large with a single bed and a double bed. Bathroom was larger than in most hotels. Nice size HD TV. The price was very reasonable in comparison to others I had checked out approx 70 dollars. The walk to downtown however is about 20 minuets as the area of the hotel has little or nothing to offer in the way of shopping or eating, if you have a car then your ok. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If coming from the airport without a car you can get a mini bus for only 15 dlrs.

This hotel is near to the North Hobart Stadium which is why we stayed there but the hills leading to the stadium are not bad going down but very steep coming back! The hotel is tired and old fashioned lacking any kind of ambience! The beds were small but quite comfy and the pillows were the best we have had in a motel. The shower base and the vanity basin were both cracked and looked pretty awful, could definitely do with an update. Cheap tea and coffee and artifical milk made us really pleased we were only staying one night

Room Tip: Every bit of outside noise can be heard in the rooms so they all appear the same

The rooms were clean but not serviced properly. Each day they emptied the bin but I had to ask for toilet paper and milk for my tea. They took towels for washing but did not replace them - I had to borrow some from a friend in another room as the reception had closed. Not all the rooms had heating that worked and one of the electric blankets in our room didn't work. Also the power pack for the other blankets didn't work.

We stayed here for 3 days/2nights. Motel is old and some people might find it unattractive. Motel is not far from the city centre which is in good location but their neon signs are turned off at night and you might miss your turn going in to motel. It is a very basic motel, good parking and have friendly staff. The shower temperature is not consistent, it fluctuates a lot. The bed is ok. I think it is value for money. We were there not for the motel but just make it our base for going around and to sleep after a long day of travelling.
