My partner and i Decided to call up on the day of to book a room for one night with our two sphynx cats, which was AWESOME!! Ended up staying 3 nights as we just didn't want to go home.. it was such a lovely place to stay. Have stayed here once before a few years back, has been updated since and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The bed is SO big !! Was so comfortable and the sheets and blankets were luxurious, the room was so well presented when we came in.. the black out curtains are also a great thing! Plenty of facilities to use, microwave, kettle, flat screen TV, toaster, lamps, iron, hair-dryer & a heat pump. Our room had a bath which I found amazing and the best shower I've had in a long time !!.. you hear the occasional car from the bathroom only as the window was open and heard no neighbours at all the entire time.. you could not tell it was just off the highway. The service was so great we got stocked up on fresh towels, milk ect and had all our rubbish taken care of each day! Oh and the location is convenient too with the largest shopping complex in tasmania just 5 minutes walk down the hill and just a short drive over the bridge to get to Hobart city. The view from the hotel is awesome too!!

We were meant to stay at this hotel, however due to the uncertainity and COVID-19 had to change our flights outs. We had a no refund policy, however the hotel did not balk at giving us a full refund. Forever grateful.

We stayed here for a few nights with our dog and it was pleasant enough for the price. The room was tidy and traffic outside wasn't too loud. The one complaint I would have is that we only got 1 small bottle of shampoo between us, which wasn't replaced when the room was cleaned.

I recently stayed here for 2 nights, whilst the location is fine, I was told by the manager that even though my “deluxe” room had mostly a view of the highway running in front of the motel that I wouldn’t hear anything as there was soundproofing. Not sure where this was, because the traffic noise was very loud, also the noise between rooms was off putting being able to clearly hear conversations, television and other noises through the adjoining door. All the light switches were filthy, and the bathroom whilst serviceable is nothing special, when using the shower the whole bathroom floor gets wet as there is no partition to prevent this. To be perfectly honest as a solo traveller I felt uncomfortable here and if I had had a choice I would have found somewhere else to stay.
