    A real gem on the Derwent near MONA.”

    A classic 50s motel in the Derwent that has been maintained in very good condition. The staff are professional, attentive, friendly and helpful. A excellent dining room for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Much better than I expected for such low rates.

    Enjoy a bit of Retro.”

    This was our favourite place and one of the cheapest. It takes you back a few years but we loved that, not too fancy. The Staff fantastic, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the meals and breakfast were top notch. It is right beside the river close to everything so do yourself a favour we will return if ever back in Hobart

    Suggest to include the number of bath room & toilet info.for those villas. As we booked a 3 bedrooms villas and found only one bathroom/toilet for a group of 9 (audlts & kids) upon check-in. We are lucky with friendly staff who help us change to 4 bedroom villas with 2 bathroom/toilet. Highly recommended this 4 bedroom villas if you have a group to stay, this villas is facing the lawn & lake, lovely environment for vacation.

    We rented total 3 villa and they arranged the villa next to each together. It was really convenient for us. The villa is in good size for 5. We cooked our own breakfast and dinner with the kitchen utensils provided. The view by the river front is really beautiful and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Villa without view”

    Fully furnished, still new and spacious

    We were given a 2 bedroom villa without view, one bedroom faced water tanks litter with birds poo, the consolation is the villa is clean and fully furnished. We were given free wifi vouchers but reception was so poor that it is as good as not having wifi.. Towels are clean and beds are comfortable with electric blanket, heater, electric fan and air condition. The walk along the river is beautiful with black swans, hunting ducks, rabbits and many birds and sculpture too along the river bank. People in Hobart are generally warm and friendly!

    Calm and Accommodating”

    1. Amazing riverside location 2. Complete Amenities 3. Near to Glenorchy city for supplies

    The villa we stayed in is a in good condition albeit a little old but very clean throughout ... Some of the kitchen utensils (ie. oven grill)do need replacement but all other appliances are very useful ... One more thing, because this area is accessible to public, maybe a little security measure would be sufficient just to make sure unwanted situation.. In overall, wonderful experience ...

    The bed was comfortable, but I had a difficult time falling asleep because hotel is right next to a major highway. The noises from vehicles on the highway were quite bad. Once I fell asleep, I was okay. You clearly need a vehicle to get to this hotel. It is locatedaabout 7-8km from Hobart.

    this is a clean, simple motel with friendly staffs. rooms are not big but clean and quiet, even though it's located close to the brooker highway. the restaurant serves excellent beef at reasonable prices as it's owner also owns a cattle ranch with grass fed cattles so the beef is fresh and well grilled to our liking.

    It was ok for the price, however most disappointing was the shower didn't work.”

    The house looked impressive from the outside, but inside was disappointing. Could do with some matinee a fresh coat of paint and a few nice paintings on the wall to brighten it up a bit. Facilities were good, full kitchen, lots of room and the beds were comfy. Unfortunately our shower head was blocked? And only let out a small trickle of water. We weren't able to have a shower, did let reception know bit we weren't offered any compensation or apology for not being able to shower. Location is good if you are going to Mona, only a few minutes away. About 15 minutes drive to the city. It is located on a busy highway so the traffic was pretty loud but I slept through it so all good.

    Beautiful Location On The River”

    Stayed here for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom villa. Positives: Villa was spacious and clean but old and tired looking except for the bathroom which looked quite new. Full kitchen was a bonus Great location close to Mona and Glenorchy Plaza. Not too far from Hobart CBD. Staff were friendly and welcoming Beautiful view of the river Comfortable beds Negatives: Not enough coffee and tea provided for the duration of the stay Only 2 toilet rolls provided for 5 adults No fresh towels provided during the stay Not enough privacy at night, no blind in kitchen, just a curtain, very hot in the afternoon/evening. No flyscreens on windows Unit 58 needs some work.

    OLD ROOMS ”

    We paid for and stayed in a budget room. The electricity went off when you put the electric blankets and the jug, and heater on at the same time. So the electricity needs to be looked at. The rooms are cold even with a heater. The bathroom is exceedingly cold with the air vent at the top of the room. The room, however, was very clean. The beds changed each day. The staff were nice. Could do with more coffee and tea sachets for the people staying there. Very noisy with lots of people staying there.

    Motel with Limited Staff Resoure”

    The Motel is good, not fantastically equipped compare to others locations we have booked, They are just beside the river therefore you can get great view with the ducks and seagulls running around your backyard. One issue we had during our stay, the glass shower door was dislodged from the hinge when we came back one night. My wife called to the reception and the lady told us that she is too busy and cannot help. thereafter, she just refused to answer the phone at all. Only late in the night where one staff came over and check the situation and offered some additional floor towels so that we can dry the floor as the water spilled into the hall. Do also note that there is only one BBQ pit for the whole entire motel, At the time we used it, it was not well maintained with ants and food scraps all over the place.
