“"Great Tassie Hospitality at a Great Price"”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

A group of seven motorcycle buddies touring around Tasmania stayed at the Junction Motel for a night. The rooms were very comfortable with all the amenities you need. We had dinner in the restaurant - 4 course buffet meal for $25 a head and full cooked breakfast the next morning. The food was excellent and unbelievable value - would definitley recommend stopping off at the Junction Motel if you are passing through New Norfolk.

After reading the reviews we didn't know quite what to expect of the manager Tim but he was friendly and offered a lot of advice about things to see and do in the area. It's an old style motel and showing its age in some areas. We had a queen sized room, a bit of an odd shape but plenty of space. If you like standard beige/chocolate decor you'll be disappointed - the room had an eclectic mixture of sofas, side tables, vertical blinds and paintings. Not sure why there was one tooled leather side table in the toilet while its mate was beside the bed. The biscuits on the tea tray were past their use-by date. We did get a chuckle from the board showing 10% discount to Collingwood supporters. Free wifi was a plus and it worked well - if only all places did this.

Many thanks for sharing your thoughts on us at the Junction...sorry about the out of date biscuits, but were glad that you enjoyed the quirky décor and the free wifi. Thanks for saying Were not the standard type of bland accommodation and we feel our value for money rates and location together with the décor of the motel and I think that's why we have doubled turnover in the past couple of years. we Collingwood people must stick together !! Ha Ha.
Once again many thanks for your review and hope to see you again if visiting our beautiful Island Home

My 17 year old son and I stayed two nights in July at The Junction Motel in New Norfolk whilst on our two weeks holiday travelling around Tasmania and we can both say that we really had a truly enjoyable, relaxing and very comfortable stay whilst there. The owner/manager of the motel by the name of 'Tim' was the perfect host in every way possible, he went out of his way to make us feel extremely welcomed at all times. Nothing was ever a problem for Tim which was really great to see!! My son and I stayed in a very neat, clean and comfortable motel room just near to the Front Office/Reception area which consisted of a lovely, warm and cozy queen and single bed with electric blankets, a wall heater in the room which worked beautifully and on both mornings we were served with a wonderfully hot, home-styled, hearty cooked breakfast which was conveniently brought to our motel room. On both nights we had dinner in The Junction Motel restaurant which had a really lovely, warm and intimate atmosphere about it with interesting decor neatly positioned around the restaurant for us to admire and appreciate whilst sipping on a nice drink and enjoying our heavenly dinner. I can honestly say that it was the best priced quality dinner that my son and I were both very fortunate to have had the true pleasure of enjoying whilst on the whole of our two weeks holiday in Tasmania. We could help ourselves to as much or as little food as we liked, from a buffet/carvery style 'Four Course' dinner menu for a mere $25.00 per person (for House Guests), which was the best quality/value dinner that we have pretty much ever come across. Every thing we ate was truly delicious and very satisfying:) All the staff were extremely friendly and a real pleasure to deal with at any time.
We will definitely come back and stay at The Junction Motel again, when we book our next holiday to Tasmania. Thanks so much to Tim and his staff for making our two night stay at The Junction Motel, a truly enjoyable and memorable occasion....we only wished that we could have stayed for much longer.....and to anybody else who is considering staying in New Norfolk for a night or two or even a week or more, we can highly recommend staying at The Junction Motel!!

Discovered by accident driving past and needed somewhere to stay. Wow we were surprised warmy checked in after being offered to have a look at the room.. Clean and comfortable with everything you need and it was only $88. Restaurant offered a buffet...well Iwe dont normally do,but we were very surprised with the Decor, Quality food and service for $25...Highly reccommend .Dont know how they make any money,I think the passion the staff have is why they were so busy . We stayed an extra night in New Norfolk to experience it all again..Well done

Very conveniently located on the main road. I was worried that it may be a bit noisy but I had one of the back rooms upstairs and it was fine. The room had a great Eastern Decor and was very clean and comfortable.

Tim is a great host and the buffet dinner for $25 for 4 courses was excellent. He can tell you where all of the local ingredients have come from and the mussell stirfry was amazing!

I could have stayed in Hobart but for the extra 20 min drive it is much nicer staying out in the country and he scenery is amazing.

I would definately stay here again but for a few nights on holiday to soak up al of the attractions in the area of New Norfolk.

Friendly welcome. Helpful manager gave us local information & map. Superb large, comfortable room with everything we needed, including good WiFi connection (1st hour free, then payment required). Lovely big bathroom. Nice short walk by river from motel. As the motel restaurant was closed, we ate at the New Norfolk Hotel - nothing fancy but we had a good, reasonably priced meal. Definitely recommend.
