This isn't a bad hotel but is probably better for families rather than business travelers. I stayed here over night the room were pretty large but a bit on the dated side. Everything was clean but the bed was a bit hard. The main issue for me was no restaurant which forced me to venture out for some of the worst Chinese food that its been my misfortune to eat lol! Over all though its ok.

I stayed here for business for 4 nights recently. It is an older style motor inn. However was very clean, and well maintained. Is a light out of the CBD however this provides a quite and peacefull sleep. It is a nice walking distence to the coast, beach precint and lighthouse.

Room Tip: Best to have a car when staying here

We had no reservation - but had to find a place to stay before catching the Spirit of Tasmania back to Vic the next morning on a day crossing. (I don't recommend it and wouldn't do a day crossing again - boring.....)

An older style motel with older style decor and furnishings.

It was spotlessly clean with brilliant facilities for families - games room and sporting equipment, plus a pool.

The room we were allocated was fantastic.It was huge... and very quiet at the rear of the facility.

Can't comment on the breakfast as we left before this was available...

Would definitely stay here again. It is away from the town slightly and in a quiet suburban street

Spent two nights in the 2 bedroom unit. We liked look of this place on the net and one of its reviews from an American hypnoyist read best in Australia! That's a big rap to put on your own site. We booked two nights in the two bedroom unit,upon entry the outside looks tidy and clean but on entry into our unit the first thing to hit is how old and dated everything was from the furniture to the bed linen the sheets were old some had small holes in them and black spots . Our son tried both single beds and started to itch he finished up on the worn lounge. The pillows had been around a long time and were terrible. We notified the cleaner in the laundry the next day and she was very pleasent and said she would have better sheets put on but our son chose to spend another night on the lounge . My wife and I had another restless night wrestling the worst pillows we both finished up with aching necks . What was going to be a nice two night getaway turned out to be two rough sleepless nights,we are glad to get home to catch up on some sleep . The owners need to buy new pillows sheets and blankets. Upgrade the beds and furniture and another thing I noticed was no smoke alarms on the ceilings.

We booked a room at the last minute and ended up in the executive apartment. This is huge and very well kitted out. The second bedroom with two single beds in very long and thin but the rest of the apartment was excellent. The swimming pool is great for families. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet.

We stayed here for a night - booked online based on price and the pool.

Room was clean and tidy with a large bathroom (also spotless). Queen size bed with a decent sized TV and kitchenette with a toaster, kettle, tea and coffee. Lots of handy information in a folder with where to eat, what to see etc. in and around Devonport. The pool was 28 degrees (stated) but felt a lot warmer - was a good size and had clean amenities including a shower/toilet.

The location is close to Devonport CBD - about a 3 minute drive.

It was in a quiet location and was quite quiet - although there were only a few other cars there at the time.

Would have no hesitation to stay here again for the price we booked at ($110/night).

It is so difficult to find decent accommodation in Devonport. I booked this property based on reviews and recent advertisement but was not confident that it would be a good choice for a solo female traveller. I am pleased to say that my stay at here was very pleasant. The rooms had been refurbished; they were simple but taste, more than comfortable. The room was large as was the bathroom, even if it was a little dated. Most importantly, for a Motor Inn it was very quiet. Not having a restaurant onsite wasn't really a concern as you could order breakfast baskets through Reception and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. As a corporate traveller, I would have liked internet access as the wi-fi on offer was very expensive. The property itself was very impressionable with a pool, tennis court and neatly manicured lawns. Despite my initial reservations, I would definately recommend this property and will use it again in the future.
