As we didn't book sufficiently early, this hotel was the closest we could find to Hobart in early January. Some reviews I read about the manager, Tim, were quite offputting. Tim might well come across as abrupt to some people (can't we all?), but I found him to be very hospitable & a really interesting individual. Just ask him about some of the flags flying around the motel or better still, ask him about Vietnam (the beautiful country, not the pointless war).
The motel itself is of maybe a 1950s vintage. The dining room has been completely renovated & is a thing to behold. The rooms are clean, comfortable & it appears that they are being renovated, bit by bit, as budget allows. eg the sink unit in our bathroom had been upgraded to a modern unit. The carpets & paint in our room were immaculate. I found the beds a bit hard, but my wife would say that I make this complaint about just about any motel, anywhere on the planet.
New Norfolk is a nice little town & if you visit New Norfolk you must stop in for a drink & a feed at The Bush Inn. So much history & beautiful home cooked style meals. Probably the best food we ate in Tassie. We didn't eat at the Junction Motel's restaurant (only because we fell madly in love with the Bush Inn), but we will next time we stay. The menu looked great!
