Recent guest reviews

I stayed at the motel for four nights as i was attending a conference at the Casino and was impressed with the cleanliness and facilities provided by the motel. It is only a two minute walk to the casino and situated right across the road from Derwent River and Sandy Bay. It had a small kitchenette and public transport is also easy to access making it convenient to get into Hobart and the markets. A great place to stay for a short break.

This place is handy to a lot of venues about, the room was well set out, the bed was very comfortable , the shower had great pressure and was nice and hot, staff where friendly, the WiFi worked well , you could hear some of the road noise , but not enough to keep you awake.

A comfortable renovated room with nice bathroom, free parking and close to the casino. The beds were comfortable and the electronics modern and the staff lovely to deal with. Definitely worth a look if you are looking for affordable accomodation in Hobart in the Sandy Bay area.

Fantastic Room we had amazing views of the river Derwent, we stayed on the 3rd level, room was very clean & modern Really worth the money we will be back again. The check in staff were extremely friendly & helpful and it was only a 4 min walk to the Wrest Point Casino..........

Hotels accommodation was tight on this weekend due to multiple events in hobart and we stumbled across this venue Great price, tidy and clean with pleasant staff. We will be returning near casino and $12 to $15 dollar taxi fare from salamanca and central city represents grest value all round.

This motel is in a Good location. Spacious clean room and very warm. Considering we were there in winter. Ten minute drive to main restaurant and bar area. We requested an early check in as our flight landed early that morning. We got a reply minutes after requesting this. Would stay here again.

We stayed in a water view room at the front of the property. We booked our room expecting satisfactory accommodation as the lady was very upfront and explained that these were the 'older style' rooms and were subject to traffic noise (as they are at the front/roadside of the property). We preferred having a view across the water and didn't have an issue with 'older style' or a bit of traffic noise. We were pleasantly surprised - the room was great (we have certainly stayed on older) and had everything we needed and more. Room was spacious, beautiful view - particularly sunrise across the water, modern bathroom, heating, and appliances to provide self contained I.e microwave, toaster etc. Easy parking, lift to levels for easy access, great little fish & pizza cafe on corner down from Motel, only 5 mins back into Hobart, few mins to Sandy Bay shopping centre and opposite Casino. Highly recommend!

The price is good for the facilities offered. The bed and linen are clean. The heating is very good. Parking being free is a bonus. Just a note, the rooms nearest to the road may be a bit noisy for those who are light sleepers.

Great location almost opposite the Hobart Casino with a view over the Derwent. Very reasonably priced and very clean. We had a Queen room which had a small kitchen area with microwave, cutlery, crockery etc. very clean bathroom with the fluffiest towels! Parking available free. We had a very warm welcome at reception with some wonderful advise regarding the Dark Mofo event which was on in the city. This motel is one you would be happy to make your Hobart base for future trips. We will certainly be back.

So overall I was really impressed with the motel and would stay again. We used the car park and walked to Salamanca market which took about 30 minutes much easier than finding parking!! Room clean, bathroom clean, we missed out on having our room serviced somehow but front desk were happy to provide fresh towels which was great! Would stay again
