“The Price is Right”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Sure this place is a bit tired and dated, but at the end of the day its reasonably priced. I found the room to be spacious, comfortable and clean with a decent bathroom. Although I didn't use the sauna or pool they seemed alright. Breakfast was basic, but included in the price so can't gripe too much. The location is quite far out of the town centre but this is compensated by nice grounds with good views depending on the unit. Definitely worth the money.

Room was very ordinary although the view was pleasant. People using the balcony next door kept us awake. Worst breakfast I have ever had. Cheap cereal, cheap bread & instant coffee yuk!!!

We were on the late flight from Melbourne, so the manager had arranged to leave our key in the night box next to reception. We arrived late, 10:30pm and we were greeted by the night manager who helped us find our room. We were super happy about that.

The room was dated, but generally appeared clean. We proceeded to get ready for bed, in that time we found 3 different insects and bugs. The windows don't have screens, and I'm figuring that's how they got in. Walls are thin, we could hear our neighbor sneeze and watch TV.

With lights out, we laid our head down on a springy mattress and noticed the road noise.The back of our room faced a road with fairly steady traffic through the night. The hotel also happens to sit under the northern approach to Launceston airport, which probably is not usually a problem (no night flights) except the last flight of the night was delayed and screamed overhead around 12:30 AM.

We were constantly itching through the night in bed. Perhaps there were more than 3 insects in the room?

We didn't get a good night sleep between the bugs, the bed, and the traffic noise. We didn't even shower in the morning, we wanted to get out.

Spoke with the resident manager about the bugs and traffic/noise and he proceeded to argue with my comments. A sympathetic ear and an apology would have gone a long way.

I stayed here only last week for a few days.
The stay overall was very pleasant and clean.
The food was bloody GREAT not a bad word to say about the food!
Dave answered any questions i needed and gave great places to visit and see.
I would not have any hesitation on returning or referring anyone to the motor in.
Thanks for your hospitality!

Nice big room. But best feature was service. We booked from the road and they have easy directions and once there were happy and cordial. Also helped with advice on subsequent travel to Melbourne. Great bar and good crowd of locals there, too, who were happy to talk to us Americans.

We enjoyed our stay here. We had a 2 bedroom suite and this was just right for 2 adults and 2 kids. Our suite was spacious and clean, everything in perfect working order. The bathroom could use some updating, but it was clean.The beds are comfortable and it is very quiet here at night. Kitchen is well equipped to cook simple meals. The property is well maintained, clean and tidy. The proprietors are very friendly, helpful and well informed. The location is convenient to the airport and sightseeing by car. We will stay here again when visiting Tasmania.
