Tamar Cove Motel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Beauty Point
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 March 2017

Tamar Cove Motel is dated. It's ready for a complete overhaul. Having said that we found the rooms clean and livable. Very handy to every part of Beauty Point. The staff were friendly and helpful and there's a restaurant on the property.

Room Tip: Have a look at your room first. Don't take the room next to the kitchen.

My wife does a lot of cooking and doesnt put up with rubbish food! The scallop pie was excellent (according to her), which is praise indeed. I tried a taste and I agree!

I had the seafood chowder. It was served tepid, to put it nicely, but as it had taken a short while to arrive I was putting up with it. However the chowder was that good, it was a shame not to have it served at the proper temperature. So I got it heated up without any problem.

The chowder was as close to perfect as you could get. It was thick and tasty, but not overpowering. Plenty of seafood, in fact it seems to have been made with the end result in mind (rather than perhaps saving a penny or two and cutting corners). Im making myself hungry just writing about it!

The last seafood chowder I had that was this good was around 10 years ago in San Francisco.

We booked a table for 4 Sunday lunch time and three of us had good meals but the vegetarian......not even "not so good". She was served over cooked spaghetti with what appeared to be tomato sauce straight from a jar with 4 small slices of tasteless parmesan on it. to begin with it actually looked like a tin of spaghetti tipped into a plate.
Thank heaven the poor girl had some dips and house fries because the only vegetarian dish on the menu was frankly appalling.

I hate bagging a great venue but that was worse than poor.

The accommodation is fine for the money you pay. The rooms are not huge, but clean and comfortable. Very convenient for a short stay. The best part is the restaurant located about 20 meters from your room. Here you can experience the true Tassie produce prepared both traditional or modern way. The chef knows what people like, the staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodation. Only the breakfast is little expensive and it would be nice to have a choice of simple continental breakfast too.

Booked this property after seeing reviews on trip advisor. Number 2 in the area apparently.

Unfortunately I think the ranking of the accommodation has been falsely calculated as it's mainly the restaurant reviews that are positive which gives a totally false ranking. The actual accommodation was well below what was expected.

The rooms are basically tiny hot boxes with no air con. Absolutely no room to move. Approximately 12 inches of room around the bed and a tiny coffee making area. Zero privacy as rooms are situated in direct view of the restaurant. Had to sit in the dark as the window coverings are black vertical blinds.

Bed very uncomfortable with flat pillows.

Tiny bathroom with small shower. No room to move.

Backpacker standard at best. $129 per night is extortion.

Be warned.

Hi Peter, To say our rooms are similar to a tiny tin box is as ridiculous as the exaggeration of the 12 inches around the bed.
No, the rooms are not air conditioned, however, we get very few days here that require that and find the room fans are usually sufficient. Contrary to your experience, most guests enjoy the new Queen mattresses and find them very comfortable.
Unfortunately, if your discomfort is not bought to our attention, we cant possibly know and have the opportunity to rectify the situation. After all, we do strive to ensure all our guests enjoy their experience with us!
Kind regards
