Tasmania is well worth visiting - so much to see and do and all in a compact area unlike mainland Australia.
The photos I saw of this place are a little misleading as they give the impression that your room has a view over the sea - that may be applicable to one or two apartments but certainly not the majority.
The unit was spacious and clean and had all the amenities one might need but the building itself is a little 'tired' as an Estate Agent might say.
Being at the back of the block farthest away from the road meant we certainly did not have a sea view but it also ensured that road noise was kept to a minimum.
Accomodation prices in Australia are not cheap and Hobart is one of the more expensive places to stay but Motel 429 seemed a reasonable option without being a highlight of our Australia trip.
