The building is in need of repairs. Great location as it is across the road from the white sand beach. We had a good view of the beach from our top floor balcony. The room as very old and tried, but clean. First placed we stay in years that had an old style TV. No wifi. The free continental breakfast...

It's hard to positive at all about this place. The view is good, but not amazing. For the price it is extremely bad value. The view is of open beach across a lagoon and is certainly the highlight. The rooms are disgraceful. It might be fine that the hotel is going through an upgrade (although I could see no evidence...

Stayed here on a fairly warm night, had no aircon or even a fan to cool down! The view is a 5/5 and is in a good location for an afternoon walk down the beach. Also has a nice pool that looks well maintained, a coin operated laundry facility, a bar, bistro and bottle-O.

We had one night at this property and didn't really have a high expectation - Lonely Planet had given us an idea of what to expect. This place is a reminder of the old style motels most aussies have experienced when travelling with families when younger. However, the rooms here have been renovated, BUT have not aircon. On a hot...

We stayed here Xmas week the room was old but very clean and comfortable. Rooms had balconies overlooking the coast which was great as it is a vast expanse of beach and sea. The room wasn't air conditioned so when the wind dropped it was a little warm - but I think the weather was unusually warm for Tassie. The...

Called into this Hotel on our way around the coast to see what their accommodation was like. The receptionist was extremely helpful and advised us that rooms were gradually being updated. We decided to stay in one of the updated rooms which was excellent value for the price. This is such a fantastic location just across the road from the...

We only dropped in for a meal when staying in town at another motel. The meals are typical of a pub or club and we weren't at all adventurous, each having roast of the day which this particular evening was pork. That said the meal was a delight. Cooked to perfection and the serve size was just right as was...

I stayed in a queen river view room which appears to be a more updated room based on others comments. Very comfortable and clean. Little balcony with amazing views across to the beach. Very small bathroom with walk in shower but still functional. Old box type TV but didn't really use it so no big deal. Friendly staff. Nice meal...

Stayed here not knowing what I was getting into!! Actually saw a cockroach crawl across the floor. The room was very old and unclean. Stains on the lamp and bedding.. the whole place had quite a musty smell. Gorgeous view, but did not want to stay in the room for a second longer than we had to.

We previously stayed at another venue in Scamander and thoroughly enjoyed our stay but decided to try this motel. I was a little disappointed. Having known Scamander since a child after spending many years holidaying on a local property I was keen to visit the town again and travel down memory lane. The staff were very pleasant and our meals...
