Nice Cosy Motel”
Great location in Sandy Bay. Good place to have a morning or evening stroll with great view of Tasman Bridge and Derwent River. Room features a unique built-in bar counter next to the window, nice feature. Bathroom is also equipped with a heater which is a really good feature to use after a shower in a cold weather.
Customer service (Trish) was superb, was contacted on the evening before check in as I was still on the road. Fantastic, big, clean and bright spacious room with modern facilities well equipped. Free parking is in the premises and has a lift. Plenty of eating places close by and the supermarket is not too far from the hotel by car. Highly recommenced for anyone visiting Hobart
Best location. Sandy bay view. Clean and spacious. Very nice stay there.
Great views. ”
The three (only) riverfront rooms have a rare unobstructed view of the mountain, the river and the nearby casino. Three of Hobart’s postcard views. The rooms are large., with crockery, toaster and microwave. Sofa and dining table. Clean, plenty of parking and 5-10 minutes south of the CBD.
Value for money, clean, highly recommended”
Although the motel was not located in town, it was conveniently located within 10 min drive from town. Room was very clean. Most importantly, the heater in the room was great, being able to keep us warm in the cold winter. There's also a heater in the toilet which was very useful when showering in cold winter nights. The room was also clean and huge. Me and my girlfriend were pleasantly satisfied with our stay at Motel 429. Will highly recommend this to friends who will be travelling to Hobart.
Good location, clean room and good facilities”
Checkin is easy, Room is clean and tidy. Beds are comfortable and the heater worked well. The wifi is also strong. There was also full cooking facilities provided, except the stove is too near the bed.
Great location and good price.”
I like this Motel 429 bcuz of its location, friendly and very nice staff. The staff was very cooperative and welcoming their guest. If i visit Tasmania and come to Hobort this would be my place to stay.. i recommend my friends and family this Motel.
Good location with ample car park inside premise. Short walk to amenities and food.
The lady at the counter when we arrived was so helpful and accommodating. We felt welcome. The locat”
Location excellent. Cleanliness excellent. Facilities excellent. Comfy bed. Very reasonably priced. Has a lift. Allowed us to leave our car there after we checked out so we could catch a bus to the market. So accomodating A little road noise but we don't have any usually as we live rural.
Clean and friendly staff”
Room was one that has not been updated so we were concerned but it was just fine. Staff was very helpful, and the room was clean. All rooms were occupied but we never heard a sound from anyone even though on semi-busy road no road noise in room. Bathroom is small but rest of room was roomy. Short drive to city and across from casino that has good dining options. Would stay again
Clean, friendly & close to everything. Very helpful to overseas travelers as what I witnessed, other places of accommodation could learn from here. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND 429 Sandy Bay road to all travelers. Thank you for a great stay
Comfort within budget”
It was nice staying with Motel 429 given its beautiful bay view, and pleasant neighborhood. The room was OK for one, although I won't recommend it for couples. The location isn't too bad given that it has a bus stop not far away, with fairly frequent services. Price wise, it's not too dear, but it isn't competitive either.
Great room with nice amenities!”
Love the location of the hotel, right in the heart of Hobart with water front view. Bed was nice and comfy - bathroom has a heater which makes it more comfortable getting out of the shower. Love the mini bar - great selection of drinks with very reasonable prices! Highly recommended !
Keen on Motel 429”
Our stay was really good. I requested and payed the extra for a waterview room. The view was not as described in the advertising and it was obstructed by trees. It was clean and tidy and comfortable. Overall was good.
This motel was clean and good size.There is a small open kitchen with microwave which comes handy.Just a short drive to Salamanca market.If you check in late after 6 pm,remember to call them and they will provide you with a password to retrieve your room key from the keybox just outside the front desk. No hassle at all.
Just love it!”
Good place to stay in hobart. It a great value of money. Anyway, staff wiil be in office only 8am-7pm so if you want to check in early or check out late, you have to call them. I was check out early so i called staff, they let me left key card under the office's door.
Quiet, comfortable stay”
I checked in late at 1am so was only there for 9 hours but was very comfortable and easy to get to and from. Excellent location down the road from Sandy Bay and the Salamanca Markets. The receptionist was very friendly and helped me with my enquiry.

Good value stay.”
Enjoyable stay in this medium-sized hotel. Really suits self-drive stays, as it's easy to navigate from. The casino is closeby for dining options, although Sandy Bay shopping precinct has plenty of options too. A coffee plunger in the room was a useful touch.
No frills accommodations, don't expect luxuries”
Stayed here as nothing else (that wasn't ridiculously expensive) was available. A little difficult to get around from here as it is on a relatively remote stretch. The front desk was nice, got us one of our rooms quite early. Rooms were nothing to shout about, and the outside corridor got soggy when it rained. However, when we were going to leave very early morning, the front desk was closed so we weren't able to check out properly and pay for the internet. Luckily we had already pre-ordered a taxi to the airport.
