    Rooms are super small. But the most surprising thing was (I should have checked, but never had to check in the past for this basic necessit, prior to booking) that the room did not have Airconditioning or a fan. Luckily for us the weather wasn’t too bad.

    Needs sound proofing

    Stayed 4 nights for business trip.not once in 4 days was room cleaned,they said due to covid you have to ask for towels and room won’t be cleaned!!!!! There is no covid in Tasmania .trolley full of dirty laundry sat outside for everyone to admire.don’t recommend the cottage rooms as walls are paper thin and you can hear everything above you and next door. Night manager was helpful in sorting things out.

    Very clean basic accommodation, with a kitchen sink. A cheap price and free onsite parking, so all in all an excellent accommodation. Have stayed here before, and would stay again.

    Great value motel close to the CBD. Staff were only too happy to help. Everything was easy. Rooms well presented and clean. Carpark was full but just found a free spot on the street so no dramas.
