least favorite hostel in Tassy ”
average stay, late check in not available after 9 to 10pm if that is what you are after, also beware they require your physical card details during your stay by taking a photo copy, this was not stated anywhere during their booking process and is a super dodgy business practice
Restaurant good. Good, convenient place for a short stay.”
Great position at beach side.
Room not very clean or comfortable
communal bathroom but felt very safe staying there”
The bed and room was clean - it was warm with a heater and new electric blanket. as a solo female traveller I felt incredibly safe - there was a working smoke alarm etc and I have stayed in budget places before and felt very unsafe. The neptune was warm and comfortable and good value for money and I would stay there again.
Value for money budget accommodation ”
Stayed at twin room. There were only 2 single bed, a sink and a chair. Bathroom was shared. Lights in washroom did not turn on. Few guests stayed at the hotel. Felt like we were the only guests. One room was set aside as guest lounge in which fridge, microwave and toaster were there for use. Free parking at the back. Small gaming area. The pub nearby is quite noisy. Luckily music stopped at midnight. Hotel may need renovation. Overall, great value for money if you just want a place to stay.
Comfortable budget accomodation”
This was all I was looking for for a one night stay. Low cost and no frills. It is close to Devonport for the ferry so a convenient budget stay.
Budget accomodation with a smile”
I was looking for an economic overnight stay having arrived late on the trans tasman ferry. I was warmly welcomed on arrival and quickly given acess to my room. Although small, it was more than adequate for a night's sleep. Only negative: restaurant was closed by 8pm.
Cheap, clean, simple, great location”
Room simple. It's clean. Just a bed, cupboard, sink, chair. Stunning walk on coastline just across the road. Sleepy little town atmosphere goes well with the atmosphere of the Neptune.
The carpets felt sticky under foot. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I only stayed one night.
Very budget hotel”
its good only if you don't mind to share the bathroom. room is clean though. next time if i go to penguin again i would prefer other hotel with ensuite. very good budget.
günstige Lage an der Nordküste Tasmaniens”
Das Neptune Grand Hotel bietet sich mit gutem Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis als Station für 1-2 Nächte für einen Aufenthalt an Tasmaniens schöner Nordwestküste an. Das Doppelzimmer ist recht einfach ausgestattet. Die Lage des Hotels zentral im Ort Penguin ist günstig für Einkäufe. Im Bistro des Hauses kann man abends sehr gut und preiswert essen. Das im Hause befindliche Casino stört nicht. Zu erwähnen sind die guten Parkmöglichkeiten direkt hinter dem Hotel.
В номере есть только раковина, туалет и душ общие на этаже. Хотя там чисто и все прилично. Нам было не принципиально, т.к. останавливались на 1 ночь. Но для длительного проживания не очень удобен. Нет завтрака в отеле, надо бегать искать по улочкам. Так что если вам проездом переночевать, то вполне достойное место.
