We booked ourselves into a (indoor, heated) pool side family room, stayed for 6 days and were very happy. Clean rooms, towels changed daily (if required), complimentary pool towels, friendly quiet atmosphere - exactly the right thing when touring with kids. We used St. Helens as a hub from which to undertake daily motorcycle tours around Tassie's Northeast/Midlands. Rides started early, we were back at the hotel by late afternoon - and there's nothing more relaxing than dropping the gear and hopping into the pool to stretch those sore limbs. The hotel provided the right service for us at a great budget price. It's no resort, but we didn't need resort. The kitchen offers dinner specials (bar meals) for $12 (fish'n'chips, lasagne, lambs fry, asian food platter, etc) which is good value and tasted great. Kids can eat at bar until 6pm, we got there a bit late and they let us orer at the bar and then served our food in the bistro dining room. Other than that, they provided us with a micro wave in the room so we could cook up our own spaghetti dinners (Nigellas Lemon Linguini, amongst others- oh yeah!) and breakfast omelette - all of which helped us to keep the costs down.
If you call them direct, they can offer a better room rate than the one you'll get through the usual booking agents. Very helpful & friendly staff. The motel is a bit dated, and the room furniture is from the 70's, but this time we weren't looking to be pampered at a modern & fashionable 'hot spot'.
