Situated next door to historical site with a key to access the site which allows you to walk to the entry point rather than driving. It also gives you access when the crowds have left. The rooms with a verandah give you a great outlook over the site. Staff were friendly. If you intend to eat there book in to...

Great location for the historic sights. Accommodation is as you'd expect for a motor inn, but you have a lovely decking area out front which is so peaceful. Didnt want a full meal in the dining area so we had a bar meal which was great and the staff were excellent - couldn't have done more.

The Inn is in a great location right on the edge of the Port Arthur historic site.The whole place is simple not luxurious but clean and comfortable. The views from the restaurant and our room were stunning. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff friendly. The free wifi only works close to the office (it is a...

Nice little motel in a great location. Backs on to Port Arthur historical site so walking distance. We did the ghost tour one night and walked around the next day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay here. Restaurant was also nice with an amazing view.

We were doing the (excellent) 3 Capes Walk and really, really wanted a spa at the end. We booked one here five months ahead, and asked for and received written confirmation. When we arrived, we were given a pokey, old-fashioned room without a spa, or even a bath. Thinking this was a mistake, we went back to the manager and...

This place could be amazing!! But it's not! The location is five star, right above Port Arthur historical site, however rooms are at the best, very basic, after a trek around Port Arthur of some 15 Klms it would be nice to come back to the motel room for a hot shower, but that is impossible as the hot water...

We arrived without a booking and was offered a room for about $110. I was worried with it being so cheap but was pleasantly surprised. Our room had everything we needed (TV, heater, coffee making facilities, parking outside the room) and was clean. The Port Arthur site is literally a stone's throw away. The only negative about this place is...

This is a 3-star hotel and is OK for a 3-star hotel. The rooms are basic. The heat was good and the beds were comfortable, and had an electric mattress paid. Only cereal, yogurt, fruit, and other cold things were on the breakfast buffet. It is right next door to the Port Arthur prison. Colorful locals frequent the bar. We...
