        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

        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.

        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.

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.

        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.

        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.

        Value for money, gorgeous views

        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.
