Reviewed 6 May 2014

I really liked this motel - had everything, very comfortable bed, great heating (very important on cold nights), and an excellent shower. We also had breakfast which came at our nominated time. Unfortunately we couldn't have dinner in the restaurant (closed on weekends), but the town centre is only a few kilometres away. The staff were very friendly and helpful, which is Important, especially if you are a first-time traveller to the area.

Stayed there on two occasions for four nights over two weeks. First stay was in a large single room with double bed- had everything I wanted. $85 a night. Peaceful, close enough to everything you could walk there. Owners / reception nice and friendly. Felt at home. Heaters were awesome. Second stay was a bigger 2 bed room unit with own kitchen and big living areas, big tv, nice bathroom even a nice entry. Plenty of blankets. $125 p/n. Room 18. Was like a house.
Compared to a caravan park near Mona that wanted $116 p/n for a 'deluxe' cabin with a tiny blower heater and extra $6 per person for for blankets and linen - value for money at the Junction for sure!
I'd recommend and happily stay there again. The buildings are older than some more pricey places but to be honest I liked it. It reminded me of the places you see on a tv show when your 'hiding out', which was exactly what I was doing- getting away from the in laws!! . Thank you Tim and crew for an enjoyable stay :)

Stayed: April 2014

We stayed at the Junction Motel for 3 nights over Easter in a double room with an extra bed for our 8 year old. It was a perfect place to stay to visit the MONA art museum which is a very easy 15 minute drive back towards Hobart. The rooms are classic motel but with a good size bathroom.
We had dinner the first night at the motel restaurant which has a truly extraordinary feel about it. Somewhere between Javanese 1930s stye and Twin Peaks. Delicious food and hearty serves. Fantastic!
Tim the manager is very knowledgeable about Tasmania and an excellent host. Loved too the small fresh bottle of unhomoginised milk on arrival and with the breakfast.
A great place to stay!

We stayed for one night in a basic double room. The staff were very pleasant. As advertised, it was eclectic in decor. The price was good, less than any of the others places we stayed in Tasmania. But, then again, the room was smaller the other places we stayed. It was also in need of some new carpeting, which was worn and stained. The bathroom, which was very large, smelled so that we had to keep the door closed at all times. Either the walls were quite thin or the people next door were really loud as we could hear a fair amount of their conversation. We did not eat at the restaurant, much to my regret, as I overheard others raving about the buffet.

Hi Beth, thanks for taking the time to review us here at the Junction,"getting what you pay for" is the exact marketing and price point we adopted when taking over the run down motel over 5 years ago..I wished you pointed out about the smell in the toilet we would have tried to solve or move you into another room.. we did have trouble last week with a nappy blocking the system...Hmmm could have been same night.. I hope that you enjoyed your Tassie trip and hope that the rest of your holiday to Australia was everything you hoped,
kind regards

Enjoyed my stay here for 2 nights at this amazing motel. coming from a different hospitality establishment I find this place very warm cosy, and great pit stop to unwind and relax. The rooms are amazing and just right, the restaurant has a very welcoming ambience to it and the food is amazing.... great flavours of the oriental in this beautiful picturesque restaurant (may i suggest evening drinks on the verandah with a great view..!!!!!! )the staff very professional and the owner Tim has this motel downpat to a T. I cant fault this place at all and yes I would highly recommend staying here for a night or 2. if you haven't stayed here before then you don't know what your missing out on......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Tim for being a very genuine open host.Thoroughly enjoyed the conversations and the welcoming down to earth vibe in the restaurant.
The professionalism and attention shown by your floor staff makes you feel that little bit special.
I agree the food is delicious and tasty as mentioned by numerous guest reviews and I love your restaurant "deco" as i felt it has a very comfortable feel and balance to it.
I had for dessert a cream puff and a lemon tart and both to me were perfect.Taste and sweetness not overdone.(delicious desserts and food so tasty)
The restaurant is a very welcoming room and i for one loved the decor and i hope others come to stay and enjoy a meal with a down to earth host with professional staff.

My room was equipped with all you need and more for a long or short stay.The Junction may be old and quirky but this means larger shower and room space and that is a good thing.My room(24) clean,warm,bed so comfortable.More here than some motels provide.
Euro? style basin in room but i found this to be a good thing also.
I finish by saying i definitely will stay here again and look forward to that day and too sample some more delicious food whilst staying in a comfortable room with great beds and great room service.
I mean no disrespect but give this place a try,leave egos at the door,enter and enjoy a great night in Tims restaurant and a restful sleep on very comfortable beds in clean rooms.

Room Tip: Room 24-you may hear a car or two early evening but not a real problem. Shower recess is roomy. Th...

Enjoyed my trip to this motel, the owner was the best host I have ever had. Not only was he consistently helping us throughout our trip in Tassie, ( recommending many good places to visit and eat), he allowed us to have an extra room for free since the motel was not busy. 5/5 stay I would recommend everyone to give it a go!
