The motel is about 2.5km from Hobart Center situated in a residential area in North Hobart.

Our room was big with 2 rooms, 1 with a double bed and 1 with two single beds. There were a fridge and a coffee maker etc. The bathroom was big as well.

The room was quiet and the bed was good. We stayed there for 2 nights and slept well. Everything else worked fine during our stay with the exception of WIFI, which was unpredictable.

It is an old establishment. The room does show its age, but is clean. At $99 per night and with friendly staff, it is a very decent option for Hobart if you have a car.

I spent one night at the Argyle Motor Lodge before leaving Tasmania.

It is absolutely the cleanest hotel I have ever seen. Everywhere it is spotless. Every room had a parking place just outside the door. I had room 8.

There is a double bed in room 8, with electric mattress warmers. There is no air-conditioning but there is a heater which is silent. There is a hot water pot, toaster and a small refrigerator. There is no internet available. The towels are the softest and huge.

Lighting for reading in bed is fantastic.

The Argyle Motor Lodgeis is in quiet North Hobart. It is about 1.5 kilometers from the center. Argyle Street is a main road and about 2 to 3 blocks away there are shops and restaurants. There is in-room breakfast and dinner service but no restaurant in the Lodge. They cook on site. I hesitated and missed out on the roast of the day.

I cannot recommend Argyle Motor Lodge any higher.

Located in North Hobart, it is just approx. 10 minute drive from Battery Point (where you can find their famous fish and chips, seafood platter and Salamanca place where you can find great seafood and grill). The Elizabeth street next to Argyle Street is also full of different type of cuisine such as Indian, Japanese, Chinese, and also Subway, Crust Pizza. So need not to worry about meals. Even if you are lazy to get out from your room, they also provide breakfast and lunch of course you need to pay for that.

Room is quite comfy, clean and with decent size. Tea and coffee are also provided. Room is not really sound proof but given that guest next door didn’t make much noise, it’s still fine. Lots of parking space is available. They even provide insecticide just in case insects come in.

Some suggestions:
- Toilet floor is slippery after a shower, consider an anti-slippery mat
- The door doesn’t feel very safe even when there is a chain lock, consider a deadlock
- Consider providing toothpaste and shampoo, we thought it is the basic of every motel
- Provide wine glasses, we love to drink
- There is no WiFi internet :S

I enjoyed my stay as the staff were very friendly & helpful & my room was comfortable .I stayed 11 days & would do so again
Cooking facilities were available which was clean & adequate for holiday cooking. Parking at the rear of the Lodge was safe & enough space for cars & vans. Restaurants were near by as was a supermarket & easy access to the city.

We last stayed at the Argyle in December, 2012. Our room had a double bed and another room with two single beds. The manager is a lovely lady and always friendly and helpful. I had a conversation with her about why we were in Hobart (a family member was very ill in hospital), she kindly knocked some money off the room rate, to which we were extremely grateful, as it was an unplanned and un-budgeted for trip. The room was clean and tidy and there is parking for every room, which is very helpful, as some places don't have enough parking for their guests.
We have stayed at the Argyle probably half a dozen times now and are always happy with the rooms and service. It's not an overly flashy place, but we have stayed in three different room types there and they have all been well kept, the furniture is in great condition and it's always scrumptiously clean, which quite frankly, is all I care about. The breakfast is adequate and fairly priced and the hot food arrives hot!. Knowing that the rooms are clean, the owner/manager is helpful, friendly and kind and there is enough parking and the room rate is very reasonable, keeps us coming back when we are looking for somewhere to stay in Hobart, it is always the first place we call.

We stayed here to attend a function at the Friends School so the location was the main attraction. The rooms are small and space limited. It was quite cramped for a 5 night stay but would be fine for a couple of nights. Service dropped away as the days passed. Towels were not replaced and sink left uncleaned after the 3rd day. Ants in the bathroom.
