We stayed in one of the motel units for 2 nights overall (one at the beginning and one at the end of our trip in Tasmania). The rooms were adequate - nothing special, but clean, facilities worked, etc - you get what you pay for ($90/night). They could get quite cold in the winter though as there is only some small electric heaters by way of heating. Fine in the summer however. The motel is suitable for those with their own transport, as it is some way out of the centre of Hobart. It is very close (1km) to MONA. We had some issues with noise - how peaceful your stay & sleep is depends on the other guests as the walls are not thick. On the first night, the guests next door to us had a problem turning off the lights in their rental car and made enough noise in dealing with the problem to wake us up (although were apologetic). On the second morning, our neighbours (an older couple) decided to start watching TV at 7.30am - the lack of insulation meant that we could hear it too. On asking they also apologised and switched it off, allowing us a little more sleep. However a lack of insulation for sound and cold is pretty normal for some bizarre reason in Australia, so this place is not out of the ordinary at all.
