“It's a motel”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stayed here after having stayed in some beautiful accommodation elsewhere in Tassie and despite the room being fine in regards to cleanliness etc the decor was a little disappointing and not very hotel/motel suitable. Some examples being the black towels and dark coloured linen on the bed, I felt a bit like I was staying in a teenage boys room. In saying that, my fiance loved it. There needs to be a fan installed in the bathroom too as there was condensation dripping off the walls when having a shower and a very fogged up mirror with the only window opening up to the car park. Overall this was an adequate place for a one night stay while seeing the sights of Strahan.

Not sure if there are new owners but we were thrilled with this accomodation! New carpet, spa bath, three options on the shower head, a small courtyard, king sized bed and ground coffee! Left our key in the door as we were late, the hosts couldn't have been more helpful!

Stayed here having stopped at a couple of hotels in town and been quoted $130 upwards for a room. Although I paid $125 here I wish I had paid the extra and stayed in town and would have been closer to places to eat and drink. The room itself was very nice, with parking outside the front door and a paved courtyard area outside the back door.. Free wifi which was good if you sat outside the room but patchy inside. King bed was very comfortable and the room had good quality linens and bath towels. The bath was a spa tub as well which was very nice. The onsite cooking facility is a microwave in the laundry room with nothing else available.

Booked this motel quickly whilst travelling, based on reviews
Have had good experience in all other accommodation booked this way but very disappointed with motel
Had wanted some cooking facilities and when I asked owner was told that there are none in motels as a rule ,but able to use microwave that was in the communal laundry
Laundry was not free ,and I believe internet was charged too
Room itself was perhaps adequate for an overnight stay ,tiny courtyard outside ,not too inviting
Carpet had a very noticeable stain on it ,quilt cover stained and marks on sheets and pillow cases,and sheets very creased
Generally felt uncomfortable with room and decided to check elsewhere for accommodation,we paid our one night fee as per cancellation policy and with visitor centre help found alternative accommodation
Which resulted in a very enjoyable stay in Strahan

We stayed in Strahan for one night as we were travelling around Tassie on a Inn Keepers Voucher package. Had a lovely stay, good sized room, large Comfy bed, nice and quiet, good heating and the hosts were really nice. We would definately recommend this place to anyone staying in Strahan.
