Recent guest reviews

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

Stayed at this motel for a week whilst holidaying in Tasmania. Rooms are fully renovated. It is practical with a small kitchenette, microwave, mini bar fridge, plenty of storage areas, Samsung TV with DVD player etc. Tastefully decorated. Good Actil towels. Wrest Point Casino is a short walk across the street. There are a variety of cafes, restaurants, banks, Coles, Woolies, Petrol Station all about a 10 to 15 minute walk away in Sandy Bay. A bus stop is close by which takes you into Hobart CBD. A small carton of fresh milk is provided on request. Helpful staff member in Reception area which is open until 7pm daily. Would stay again.

I stayed here for a conference at Wrestpoint, had the 3 br. Apartment (actually at 425 Sandy Bay Rd). Full kitchen, dinette, washer, living room. Beds were comfortable, but back bedroom could use a space heater (got chilly at night). The front room is kinda noisy because of the road, but you also have an amazing view of the river. It's quieter in the bedrooms. WiFi was spotty, went from good Netflix streaming to can't even get email, but that happens in hotels too. Mostly it worked OK. I would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. It was close to the Wrest Point casino. The rooms don't have a wiew of the bay as I thought. The room is clean and comfortable. The motel is not to far from the city. $12-$15 in a cab will get you into the city or there is a bus stop out the front.

Nice welcome,big room with the Queen Mary2 sailing down the Derwent when we opened the blinds.Locality is spot on,we even walked back from the city(then again we are Queenslanders).A cooked breakfast option would be nice.

Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are a reasonable size and clean and tidy. Cleaning staff are also friendly. Bus stop close by to get to city and Salamanca markets. We also discovered the Riverview snack bar at the casino. Cheap eats with a view within walking distance. Downfall was the hard bed. View not bad.

Shacked up here at 429. Good facilities and fairly central to everything. Our room is good however the bed is hard and we wake up with a sore back. Shower is great. Wash basin is small. Kitchen is fine. There is a view out over the harbour and up go Mount Wellington. We would stay here again.
