              Good Value”

              I was visiting Port Arthur Gaol complex and wanted a reasonably priced Motel away from Port Arthur. Parson's Bay Retreat was far enough away to provide a peaceful location. I had a pleasant evening meal at the Local Tavern and a good priced breakfast at the Port Arthur general Store next day.

              Nice, spacious cosy rooms

              We stayed at the Parson's Bay Retreat before visiting Port Arthur. It is a lovely family run motel in a nice quiet area. The rooms were spacious, well equipped and very clean, with a special mention going to the excellent bathroom facilities. Only stayed one night but found the staff very friendly and accommodating and would recommend staying in this beautiful spot.

              Comfortable stay, patchy Wifi”

              We stayed in the family self contained unit for 2 nights. The place is only around 15 minutes to Port Arthur Historical Site. The room is clean and there is ample storage in the bathroom. Water tasted a bit funny and its colour was yellowish, perhaps that’s the water around the area? Wifi was very patchy, which was quite annoying. But other than that, we enjoyed our stay in this retreat.

              Nice Motel, comfortable room”

              Very comfortable & spacious room, friendly staff.

              On arrival we were delighted to be given an upgrade from a standard double to a studio room. We expected to have a small fridge in our room, but with the studio we had a kitchenette to, so were able to self cater. There was heating in the room which was needed since bad weather arrived during our stay. The free WiFi worked well. I was very happy to be able to wash & dry clothes in the laundry. It was 'coin in the slot' but half the price of the facilities available in our Hobart Hotel. I also used the clothes line outside for drying. We appreciated the range of DVDs available for our use. We did not use the restaurant because we self-catered, so I can't comment on that. The staff were very friendly. It wasn't super close to Port Arthur, but only a short drive away. In summary, for us it was a totally good experience.

              we had a fantastic time at parson's bay. the motel room is very comfortable, good bed and there is a kitchenette, which we weren't expecting! the grounds are nicely kept and it's convenient to be able to drive to the door of your own accommodation - makes for a short path for heavy luggage! the staff were very helpful as well. definitely the best value accommodation we had in tasmania.

              Beautifully cooked meals! Spa, Pool, Sauna, Quiet area

              Initially planned to stay for one night, but as soon as we put our bags down we decided to stay for an extra night as we felt at home with good facilities. This place is most definitely great value for money. The staff were very professional and helpful. The room was a good size, very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Location is terrific for us. Only a short drive away from Port Arthur. We had a really nice walk around the surrounding area and visited the goats in the back paddock. There is a tennis court, heated pool, spa and sauna which we didn't make use of but looked very appealing. The food in the restuarant was superb! Everything was cooked and presented beautifully! Tasted terrific and was an excellent value with low prices with quite a good variety of choices. We ate dinner here both nights. Didn't even think about going anywhere else.

Only a short drive away from Port Arthur. We had a really nice walk around the surrounding area and visited the goats in the back paddock. There is a tennis court, heated pool, spa and sauna which we didn't make use of but looked very appealing. The food in the restuarant was superb! Everything was cooked and presented beautifully! Tasted terrific and was an excellent value with low prices with quite a good variety of choices. We ate dinner here both nights. Didn't even think about going anywhere else.

              a place not far from Port Arthur”

              All hotels around Port Arthur are booked except this one which is an apartment style retreat about 15 minutes drive away. Overall it is good. Has everything you need. The cleanliness can be better esp the closets.

Ilan the owner was the nicest man he was very accomodating and gave Us a beautiful bowl of soup yum! Highly recommend staying here only improvement I would love to see is the pool refilled but water shortages won't allow. Spa looked and felt inviting but didn't use.

              Best motel I have ever stayed in”

              Very clean and bright room, lovely place

              We stayed in this motel for 2 nights. There is swimming pool, sauna and spa for guest usage for free. BBQ facilities available for us to have fun. There are chickens and ducks around and they approached us for food. There is a balcony behind the room and right after that it is the natural grassland and forest. We saw wallabies and other small animals in the grass at night. Free wifi and microwave available and we just love the experience there.

              Quiet comfortable stay in a warm room and very clean room. Staff were friendly and very welcoming. Great location to the water, and surrounding beaches. Will be heading back soon. Restaurant was closed but rated it high as receptionist was more than helpful in pointing out surrounding restaurants and shops.

              Stay here - amazing spot”

              This was our favourite place to stay in our two week tour of Tasmania. The Cabin was spacious with two amazing bedrooms, a living area, and full kitchen. They even had a huge stock of movies that we could borrow and watch with our family. The rooms have a great view and are close to several calm swimming beaches as well as a short drive into Port Arthur. I wish we'd stayed here longer.

              We checked in very late. The owner of the property is informative and helpful. ”

              Don’t get upset if some how end up with late check in without prior notice to property manager. Stilll you can access the property by ringing a bell if you find the reception is unattended or closed. Property manger Is cooperative, nice and knowledgeable. We got a studio room and was fully equipped including stove, microwave, fridge. It is a nice calm place, close to nature.

              Good location and easy to find. Close to Port Arthur and Tasmanian Devil Sanctuary and the beach. Safe and quiet. Everything was very easy and the staff was nice. Clean. Nice rooms. Good facilities. Good value for money. The spa isn't great but good enough for a short stay. Would stay there again.
