“Love it”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Our 3rd stay at The Waterfront and we feel like part of the family. Justin and Cyndia have an exceptionally wonderful staff, we love Melissa and her team, they are so friendly, efficient and obliging and we thank them wholeheartedly for the way that they look after their guests. We notice the improvements that have been made to the rooms every time we visit. Sitting outside our room in the afternoon sun watching the locals stroll by and sharing a greeting is a delight. The meals in the dining room are simple fare but prepared to perfection. Once again "well done Guys" you have our vote for best accommodation in Tassie.

Room Tip: Choose a King Size Delux, the price is super reasonable, the beds A1, parking right outside the door...

Hi ralphie012

Thanks so much for your kind words. The team will be stoked as they love it when our customers have a great time and appreciate our service. It's not too much of an effort for any of us, as we all love what we do, and I'm so pleased that this has been your consistent experience each stay. In a nutshell, we like to think we provide an experience for our guests that we would like to have. And whilst we don't have a lot to spend on big refurbs, we hope the little things we do make the difference. And of course goes without saying, we treat our guests like friends ! Hope to see you this way again soon. Thanks again

An older motel that has been restored. The rooms are a bit on the small size however, for an overnight stop was perfect. Rooms are airconditioned and comfortable. Motel staff were absolutely first class and could not do enough for you. If you don't want to go out at night there are some light meals available together with a bar and lounge with a log fire which in winter would be really cosy. The continental breakfast in the morning was also great.

Not an expensive motel, however first class service and comfortable in a quiet spot beside the river. Definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms face the river and would say that they are about the same.

Hi janipots

Thanks so much for the review and taking the time to share your experiences. We strive to keep the motel updated without sacrificing the integrity of the era from whence it came! Some of our rooms have air conditioners, but not all as yet, but we are working on adding in some air conditioners in the next year to a few more rooms. We are so glad you enjoyed brekkie and your experience with us. It really makes our day when customers are happy with our product and our service. Thanks again, and hopefully see you this way again sometime.

Booked this Motel partly based on having viewed their quirky website and the idea of staying in "an oldie but a goodie". Great rooms very comfy yes original 60s décor in some rooms but spotlessly clean and a great spot on the river. Melissa was terrific, helpful and friendly. Loved the breakfast in a warm sunny room full of books, games and other "bits". Thankyou for a great stay.

Hi toy mum

Thanks for taking the time write about your stay. So pleased we fulfilled on the promise! Yes, we are proud to be an oldie but a goodie. We love what we do, so giving great service is all part of what we enjoy about our motel. Along with the fact we think our motel pretty cool, and hopefully getting better as we do more and more.

Hopefully see you this way again soon.

I booked this motel because I wanted to near the tulips, I was bowled over by the caring staff. Melissa is a treasure and even made sure we had dinner when we arrived, after the kitchen had closed. The rooms were definitely 60's but sooooo comfortable, the beds had been replaced with such great beds it made it hard to get up in the morning. Plenty of hot water in the showers, made freezing days bearable. The breakfast was brilliant, fresh fruit, fresh coffee, cooked breakfast was so yummy. The service was excellent, my mum and I felt very spoilt, and put the coffee machine to good use. The other surprise was the position exactly as described, right on the river, we walked along a lovely path and were able to look out over the river to the golf course while eating breakfast, or having a light meal at night, their steak sandwich was fantastic. I travel to Tassie often, and will definitely go back to this lovely place. Thankyou The Waterfront you made our holiday just that bit more special

Hi paper city quilts

Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your experience with us. We all love what we do, and melissa will be thrilled that you enjoyed your stay as we all aim to make everyone's stay memorable. Even more when we can make your holiday just that bit more special! Well, I guess we are spoiled as we enjoy the view and close proximity to the water everyday, so I am always pleased when others come to stay and enjoy the experience as well. The steak sandwich is a popular choice on the room service menu, so I'm glad you got to experience it! We use local produce to make it the best that tassie can offer between two pieces of bread!

Hope to see you this way again soon

This is a small 1960's style motel sitting on the river at Wynyard. Looks can be deceiving and despite the old style outside, the deluxe rooms are not only affordable but very modern and comfortable. It is obvious that small things are important. The most important part of any hotel is the bed and the beds are super comfy with soft mattress toppers and excellent pillows. Stay for breakfast and enjoy the daily fresh mixed muesli. Friendly people giving old fashioned service.

Room Tip: Go for a deluxe room-the extra is nothing and the upgrade of the rooms is excellent.

Hi Flash Hobart_Tasmania

thanks for your review. Its so nice to hear when people appreciate the little extras. We spent a motza on upgrading all the beds recently and the positive feedback has been well worth the spend, and frankly why wouldn't we- its our business after all! Glad you enjoyed the muesli, lovingly created by myself and Lorna our cook!

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

We overnighted here to sample the delights of the tulips at Table Cape. The motel proudly proclaims that it is an authentic 60's motel but with every possible improvement so long as the ambience is maintained. The location is great, right on the river and, yes, the motel is amazingly comfortable and delightful. Bed great. Staff great. Used to be a fan of motels and am now a fan again!

If you love 1960s style you'll appreciate the retro character of this cute drive up motel. I love this era so was like a pig in mud with this this preserved gem. The hotel was affordable and we loved the brekkie. Staff were excellent and super friendly.....great experience all round

Hi peterandjosephine

So glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the retro appeal of our property. I'm a fan of the era, so am doing everything I can to preserve this gem, without sacrificing quality or comfort. We have recently renovated some of the bathrooms and luckily were able to save the original tiling and the mix of old and new works well I think. It can be challenging at times, but we're up for it, especially when it can be appreciated by others like yourselves.

Thanks again for taking the time to review our little motel and hopefully we will see you this way again soon.
