Budget stay in awesome location”

Food location laundromat

Stayed overnight here in a pool access room. The sign showed the pool closed at 9PM and the room information book showed 8PM though it was closed before 6PM which I was very disappointed with. The meals were great value and awesome. The room was large though beds uncomfortable and the shower didn't have continuous hot water. Overall good stay

Great views from Hotel”

great staff, fairly big rooms

Staff at Bayside Inn at St Helens was helpful and the room was spacious and clean. It was only a short walking distance to supermarkets and very convenient for us to go to Binalong Bay to view the orange lichen covered rocks. Breakfast was good too. Being so close to the bay also afforded us great views.

It was located very strategically. Sadly, there is no wifi in the room. The wifi at the reception area is very unstable. If you unlucky that the day you visited is on a rainy day, there is nothing much to entertain unless you like arcade game

Nice place”

The inn was right in town and not far from the sea with a playground nearby. Room facing the sea was spacious and though there were no cooking facilities, the inn cafe provided meals which were quite affordable. The lighting in the room was a bit dim but it didn't pose any problems.

Location good sea view”

The Inn has an unattractive exterior, but is located directly facing the sea and pier. The room is on the second floor, no lift, need to walk up stairs. The room has great sea view, with walk-out balcony. The sound barrier is not good, we can hear the noisy kids next door. The free car park is across the road. The restaurant on premise served delicious food with fairly reasonable prices and friendly service. We ordered fresh oysters, seafood chowder, scallops and prawn linguine, fish and chips, and a small mug of pale ale. We enjoyed the meal as we emptied all our plates. The inn is a short walk to the shops, bakeries, supermarkets, to the beach.

Large room, bistro downstairs, convenient location

We used Bayside Inn for a one night stopover on our way to Launceston. It is easy to find, clean, and having the bistro on the ground floor made it easy to get a quick meal without having to spend time wandering around town. We would happily stay here again.

room is big, with a small balcony, quiet surrounding, large bed with large TV that I can't see in other Tasmania hotel (usually very small tv like a computer monitor). It's a bit old, but it's quite clean. Try the St Helen cafe next to it, very fair price, good pizza and seafood box.

Impersonal but clean, comfortable”

Modern bathroom, marina view, large room

We wanted to say the Bay of Fires, and St Helens was a good place to find accommodation. The hotel appears to be an old 90s style family hotel, but the rooms were large, clean, modern, and the bathroom was great. We had a view over the marina, and could walk to nearby restaurants. No wifi, and parking across the street. St Helens itself is a sleepy town, and everything shuts early, but it's easy to get to the amazing Binalong Bay.

We had booked a town view room for two couples, but they were very shabby with broken curtains and not very inviting. We had international guests with us and reception kindly move us to river view and it was fantastic!! Sunny, bright, big,with 3 beds, table and chair, balcony. We loved it.

Great Location with very basic amenities.”

Close to the shops and beach.

The room was spacious and clean though the curtains required some repair as they were not hooked onto the rod as the tape had perished. This allowed lots of light to come in at night as well as the heat from the west in the afternoons. It was very hot weather and only had a fan - no airconditioning. The hotel was very quiet and even with families of children staying there, the noise was minimal. We ate at the restaurant and enjoyed our meal there. Parking was easy and the staff were friendly. There was a lot of good sightseeing in the area and easy walks ao well.

Located in the middle of the shopping area. Good view of the waterfront. Large rooms that accommodated a family of four very comfortably.

While the restuarant closed too early for someone from Melbourne, like all other restuarants in St. Helens, the service was welcoming. The reception staff were willing to be called back after closing time of 11pm, if some of our party arrived later.

Value for money central location something for all types of travellers

The hotel is located in the beautiful seaside town of St Helens on the sunny east coast of Tasmania.On the trip to this destination you will see some stunning views. On arrival at the hotel I am sure you will receive a warm welcome from the front office staff.They are also very informative. There are several levels of rooms available ranging from budget motel rooms to good rooms actually inside the hotel some with balconies and views of the sea. There is a heated pool gaming and betting facilities and the meals are excellent where the world class local seafood is showcased. Although this establishment could do with afacelift for price and location I have no hesitation in recommending it as a great place to stay.
