Stayed here for one night whilst on a business trip. What a little gem. Beautiful location, very quiet and comfortable.

Breakfast was terrific - I cant tell you how long it has been since I had bacon that crispy with the rind still on.

Hi terrybelle

Thanks for your review. So glad you found us and enjoyed your stay. The bacon is smoked locally by our butcher and we cook it in a very special way to achieve rind perfection!

See you again sometime for brekkie and a stay!

After reading all the reviews on trip advisor about this place, we chose it. I guess not everyone is going to feel the same way on arrival. On entering the driveway to the property, our glances towards each other in the car was "Oh no what have we done" on entering Reception, which is clean and tidy, we thought maybe it would be better than the boring looking exterior- We opened the door to our room, and NO it was just as plain and outdated as the exterior- Funky, Retro - No it is not- it is just plain outdated. I guess that because of the age and style of the buildings they need to make it sound quirky and fun- at the end of the day it is just outdated. The bed was saggy and soft -we thought the bed was the same age as the room on how saggy it was - although the date on the mattress says it was made in 2012- The Lounge/Dining area is about the only feel good experience of the motel. The location is WATERFRONT- and that is about all we felt it had going for it. For the money we spent, we expected more, considering we have stayed at many waterfront properties and this would not rate as value for money at all from our perspective.

Hi hadda holiday p

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your experience. Sorry it sounds like our place isn't your thing. Yes we are an older style motel, and we have a variety of rooms at different rates to reflect the aesthetic modernity of the particular room. So the cheaper rooms are more vintage than the more expensive rooms. But all rooms have the same age beds, around two years I think, and all have the same TVs, etc. The beds are designed to be inbetween soft and firm, so won't appeal to everyone, and by the sounds of it, not to your liking. I think also the toppers we put on make it feel a little softer than other motel beds. This is usually what most people, like about the beds, but again, not for everyone.

The outside of the motel is being updated as I type this, to the best we can manage within the confines of the 60s design of the property which we love. We feel like its fun and funky, but , again, not to everyone's taste.

Thanks anyway for your feedback, helps us to keep on top of our game.

Regards
Cyndia

We had two nights here as a rest and recoup in the middle of our Tassie driving holiday. This property is situated on a river inlet from bass straight. All the rooms (single story motel style building) overlooking the inlet so it's lovely to see the water every time you go to your room. The rooms were large. Ours being a disabled room had a large bathroom and huge shower good for a wheelchair If needed. They had a nice breakfast room where continental was included in our rate. You could order a cooked breakfast for an additional $7.50 if desired. Limited laundry facilities at a cost.

Fantastic view from rooms, friendliest staff that I have come across in a long time. The room was clean and the well equipped. The heater in the room is good size that heats the room quickly.. Close to town centre and close to parks for a short walk around the river edge.

I honestly don't know of a place that provides all the little things that make for a much more pleasant stay as what can be had at The Waterfront Wynyard. They have thought of everything, from the nice classy touches made to the linen to the hot chocolate mix that's provided on top of the boring old coffee and tea, oh and in their deluxe rooms they have Tim-Tams not your boring old motel biscuits :-)

There is a really nice pub/restaurant across the road within easy walking distance so you can park the car, go across for a nice meal, have a few drinks and wander back along the scenic waterfront.

The staff are really friendly and only too happy to assist with your requirements.

If you get the chance to stay in the Wynyard area stay at The Waterfront Wynyard. I promise you that it will be a stay that you will not forget for all the right reasons.

I honestly cannot fault The Waterfront Wynyard.

Room Tip: Stay in the deluxe rooms and you get Tim-Tams!

Hi sharkey-02

Wow, what a nice review! We try really hard to offer great service, good value and little extras in the room. Sometimes we get it wrong, sometimes we get it right! Thankfully we get it right more often than wrong. We have an older style property, but we don't think that should prevent us from offering great service and little extra touches that make peoples stay with us memorable.

Hope to see you this way again soon!

Great service from the moment we arrived, it was a chilly night and they had thoughtfully turned the heater on in the room for us prior to our arrival so it was nice and warm. We stayed in the deluxe room. The room was very clean - yes, this is an older hotel, it has been around for some time, but it has been well looked after and repaired as needed, and the bathroom was clearly renovated recently. The amenities provided are nice - good quality tea and coffee, hot chocolates and even a couple of tim tams. Plus a complimentary small box of famous L'Anvers chocolate truffles on arrival :)
I thought the bed was very comfortable, my husband thought it a touch on the soft side - which just goes to show you can't please everyone with beds.
Breakfast was oustanding - a good continental spread that included some lovely local ham and cheeses, and you could upgrade to hot breakfast as well for a very reasonable amount.
And of course, you can't beat the location right down on the waterfront, lovely to wake up to.

Hi dragonlass-aus

Wow what feedback to read. I'm so pleased you enjoyed everything, as we all try really hard to make people feel as welcome as possible, and the stay as memorable as possible. The king beds have an extra thick topper on them, which is feather, and kind of feels like a cosy nest! So not to everyone's taste I guess! We like to put a few little extras in our deluxe rooms, so I'm glad you enjoyed them!

Hope to see you this way again soon

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the The Waterfront Wynyard. The room was cozy, comfortable and very well equipped, we loved the complimentary chocolates. The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The restaurant/communal area was a warm and welcoming place to eat dinner and have a few drinks and the continental breakfast was amazing!

Room Tip: Don't miss the breakfast.
