“Loved it - lovely hosts, peaceful pretty setting”
Reviewed 11 April 2011

The hosts, John and Anne, are lovely and accommodating without beinf intrusive.

They have a little schnauzer called Ollie who quietly pokes around the backyard, and when invited (but only when), comes up for a pat. Most importantly - he doesnt bark and doesn't leave a mess in your yard!

The units were very comfy for my girlfriend and i, and our friends shared the adjacent unit and loved it too.

The street is quiet and pretty and only a stone's throw from town, the water and the ferry wharf.

Thanks John and Anne - we'll definitely be back!

Reviewed 5 November 2010

This motel is situated in the pretty backyard yard of an old Devonport home. It is in a quiet location less than 5 minutes walk to Devonport restaurants and ferry terminal. The hosts are friendly but unfortunately the room was a bit tired and needed some repairs ( damaged paintwork, torn curtain, old linen). The overiding negative was the paper thin wall between the units. Our neighbours were up at 5.30 am and we were woken by the male commenting "What are you doing up so early?" Our thoughts exactly!
