Tim was very helpful with things to do around the area and where to eat. We arrived on motorbikes with the weather getting bad. Tim offered his car because there is no car hire in New Norfolk. Great stay. Priced right.

We arrived just before 7pm, tired and exhausted, to be given an excellent room rate plus be in time for the 4 course $25 per head (in house guests) dinner. We were amazed by the quality and range of food on offer - the Junction Motel was considerably the best all round value for accommodation and food during our 3 1/2 weeks in Tassie. Rooms very clean, comfortable and well appointed and staff could not do enough for everyone.

Thanks Shauna, for your review of us at the Junction. Its great to hear that you considered us the best value on your Tassie trip, that's exactly what we are trying to achieve. We want to be known for exactly that. Being so close to Hobart we have to compete with the big chains and we are just a small business trying to give the best we can for the price..Once again Shauna many thanks and all the best for the New Year.

We were only looking for overnight accommodation, but it was so good we ended up staying 8 nights. Clean, comfortable, roomy - and easily the best value in Tasmania! Slept like a top every night. The owner, Tim, is a thoroughly nice guy, and cannot do enough to assist you. He is also a great source of local information. We dined in the in-house restaurant every night, and the food was excellent. Real home-style, good quality, well presented food, and the best value I have encountered anywhere. Parking at the door was great, and having laundry facilities was another bonus. Thanks so much Tim for making our stay so thoroughly delightful.

Very friendly and helpful staff (even tourist information was provided). Perfect for one night. Price level rarher high (via booking.com) compared to the standard equiped room. Trafic causes noise to some rooms.

Hi PM, many thanks for your review of us at the Junction. We do advertising our stand by rates out front of the motel and thats the same price you pay when booked direct with us, if booked through third party sites I have to pay between 10-15% commission, so that is why our double price is $95 on those sites rather than $88 as stand by. Hope that this explains it all a little clearer...once again many thanks for taking the time to review us

Having taken my car, for the first time, to Tassie, I had booked in for a foodie adventure at The Agrarian Kitchen just out of New Norfolk, so I needed accommodation nearby. I spoke with Tim and liked the sound of him - very helpful - loved the Collingwood supporters' discount! So I booked for 4 nights - what a great find - it made my trip to Tassie. Such reasonable rates - proves you don't need 5-star stuff to be happy and comfortable, having just spent 4 nights in Hobart. Tim was so informative, supplying a map of where eateries were, and the road to the Agrarian Kitchen. He apologised that the kitchen was closed for their annual leave - however, being a foodie, there was ample room in the 'frig for food and a microwave. The bonus was having a comfy settee and table & chairs - a heater for the cold nights and friendly staff and parking the car at the front door. Loved the place and will certainly recommend.

Where does one start when expectations are exceeded. Booked the Junction purely on price ( and good reviews), and found it to be easily the best little accomodation of our trip. Sure there are more fancy and stylised places, but if you dont demand 5 star everywhere you go, this is a great place to stay. Easy to find, right on the main (quiet) highway, the motel symbol is the first clue of what is on offer.
Tim has put a lot of effort in transforming an older motel into a homely, quirky & comfortable place to stay. Feng Shui is obvious, with the gardens & pots of plants & succulents all around. Each room is coloured differently, and the old time posters on the walls outside take us back to memories lived. The rooms have been renovated to what the building has allowed, and brightened with furnishings of colour & comfort. The table & chairs outside the room were handy too.
As for Tim, I suggest he start a "how to be a perfect host" school, many could learn from him. A genuine concern for our comfort, engaging conversationalist, and an ambassador for all the places to see. And he remembered our names. Very cool. The bar frige is fully stocked, and goods are at shop prices. Tell me where else you can get a stubby of beer from a motel room for $3.50.
At reception, every conceivable brochure of Tasmania is there, as well as local history. Tim even provided a map of the local eateries for us.
It was very pleasing to note Tims pride in cleanliness & comfort, the beds are sanitised regularly by a contractor, for the health & peace of mind of guests.
