Reviewed 24 May 2014

A very good motel, comfortable rooms well away from the rest of the business (the usual Aussie entertainment, pokeys, bar and restaurant) so room wasn't affected by any noise. Conveniently situated 10 minutes from Hobart Airport and only a 15 minute drive to Hobart CBD. So far, this is a five star review but we were let down by it's failure to resolve the WIFI problem we experienced despite valiant efforts by it's staff. That was frustrating, but to us, important (we note previous reports highlight the wifi problem, so it's not new)

Room Tip: 16 ground floor rooms with their own park space. Short walk to bar and restaurant. If WIFI is import...

Stayed here for 2 nights on my way home to Sydney as it was close to the airport. It was very clean and comfortable and wasn't expensive. Loved the close proximity to the tavern as it was a short stroll from my room. The food was good and very tasty. Really enjoyed my stay here.

Close proximity to the airport and Hobart. Very impressed by the décor, comfortable beds and spotlessly clean throughout with modern bathroom. It was great having the Tavern on-site and the meals were excellent and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for a wonderful stay, and we would definitely recommend this to anybody whilst in Tasmania.

we stayed for 2 nights in a queen/single room with 3 of us at a cost of $145 so wasnt expensive. The bed was very comfortable and was relatively quiet. The tavern was average food prices and quality (approx $25-$30) and relatively busy. The downside was it was in the middle of nowhere with nothing else around so one night is definitely enough. My teenage son definitely not impresssed at not being able to connect to wifi even though we were given a code to access it.

Room Tip: All rooms looked to be the same

Stopped here on Good Friday for one night and was very impressed with the decor, cleanliness and comfort. Had a Queen bed plus a single bed in our room and both were very comfortable and with plenty of pillows and warm blankets. Spotless bathroom with modern fittings as well. Very good value motel a short drive from the airport.

Our first time here. My husband and I visited during a heat wave so the air conditioning was very good. Because of the mainly cool climate some motels do not have air-conditioning. It does have wi fi but not a consistent or strong signal. Good motel to stay for access to Hobart airport. The room wasn't serviced during our two night stay but all amenities very clean and close to their dining room which was convenient.

Thank you for your positive review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, in particular the air conditioning during the heatwave would have been essential! The venue is in a great location and close to the airport, with new modern rooms and an excellent bar, bistro, function centre, gaming room and bottleshop.

Thank you again for your comments and we hope to see you back in Hobart in the future.

The rooms are new and spacious, clean and very comfortable.
The units are located at the rear of the Hotel but are not exposed to the regular hotel customers.

The meals at the hotel are what you would describe as basic but conveniently located if you don't expect cordon bleu.
The accommodation however is superb!

Room Tip: The units/rooms at the rear are the quieter ones.
