    Simple But Pleasant”

    Cozy Rooms, Generally Clean & Friendly Staff.

    We arrived at the Silver Hills Motel quite late at around 7:30pm (late for Tasmania) and check-in was no issue. The staff were friendly and asked us if we wanted to eat in the Hotel Restaurant. None the wiser, we declined thinking there would be food in town. Big mistake, everything closes early in Queenstown! Lucky enough we we able to find a grocery store which sold Pizza cooked fresh which did the Job! We were also the last ones who managed to get a Pizza! In terms of the room, the room had a good view and was cozy. The heater worked a treat and the room was furnished with a bar fridge and microwave (which came in handy). The bathroom probably needs to be updated but was generally clean. Generally speaking about Queenstown, if you don't eat early, then bring some 2 minute noodles because the next closest food store is an hour away.

    The motel is sufficient and conveniently located in Queenstown. They also provide a microwave for those who do not want to eat at the ensite restaurant. Would be perfect if the room offers utensils and microwaveable plates, but the friendly staff is more than happy to lend you some from the restaurant if you request from them.

    Not a bad Motel accommodation for a small town”

    Internet, friendly, attentive and accommodating staff, well priced

    This motel was a good find, thanks to the help of other reviewers on Agoda. Although we had booked a deluxe queen room, on arrival, James (the receptionist/manager) gave us an upgrade to queen +1 bedroom. The room facilities were quite basic, yet sufficient. On arrival, we had some issues with the bar fridge not working properly, however it was replaced after it was brought to managers attention. The motel has a self service Laundry (coin based washers and dryers, ironing board). Washing powder was free. The room I stayed at was located on 1st floor. Some nights were cold. The beds are equipped with electric blanket if required. Also, there is a electric heater in the room. The motel restaurant food was more on the expensive side. The initial night of checkin, we had dinner at this restaurant as we were not familiar with Queenstown. Later found alternative choices. Limited choices in the Queenstown makes this motel a more suitable accommodation, convenient and useful than others in the area.

    We stayed for a night during our travels through the wilderness areas of Tasmania. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant provided an outstanding meal. It was so good we did not need breakfast! The rooms are a bit dated and need refurbishment, but was very clean and the bed quite comfortable. All in all, a good place to stop in Queenstown.

    Good value and location for us in Queenstown worked well after a long day coming across from the mid lands, would have been too far to get to Strahan in one day. Queenstown made for an interesting base to catch the heritage train ride which was well worth the trip, and to explore the interesting landscape from lookouts nearby..

    It was a pleasant 1 night stay. The staff was friendly & well-equipped to help us out with our enquiries, even though it wasn't related to the motel. We were given a family room with a kitchenette, which was well-equipped for us to use. It allowed us time to relax in the room without the hassle of looking for eateries at odd hours, which was really good as we were travelling on a tight time budget.

    Beautiful views, helpful staff”

    The hotel was already closed up for the night when I arrived late afternoon, but there was a phone that directly called the manager who came to open the hotel right away. She was very helpful with directions to services. The room itself had a heater and electric blanket, and WiFi worked for most of the time from within the room. There was a kettle, microwave, and fridge, with tea/coffee and milk. A bit pricey for the area, and out of season. Would recommend a stay here overall.

    Quiet but Run down ”

    Quiet,Great Staff and Cleanliness. Good Restaurant

    Tired and very claustrophobic rooms. Definitely not worth the money and I am surprised how they could charge the rates they do. The rooms are tiny, my room was Queen Deluxe and measured about 4x5 meters.Very dark with wood paneling and all wood type features dominating room made for closed in feel. Bathroom had modern type shower but was tiny.( I dropped soap and had to open door and get out to bend down to retrieve it. Hard bed,lousy TV reception and only Telstra mobile reception here BTW.Flaking paint and wood rot on the outside,badly needs refurbishing. On the plus side the restaurant serves awesome tucker.Try the Bourbon Rib-eye steak served with Scallops and prawns in a white parsley sauce. Wort The $45 Yummmmmmy.The manager and staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing is out of their way to help you. Great Laundry and very clean rooms with linen and room cleaned and vacuumed daily.

    Disappointing experience”

    Fresh linen daily. Polite service staff. pPositioned close to town.

    I have stayed in many hotels in my life and am fully aware of the usual welcome that can be expected. I was taken aback by the offhand attitude of the manager upon arrival.I asked about breakfast facilities. His reply was "cooked breakfast would be available on days when his chef turns up. Otherwise, they could always rustle up some continental." The facilities at the motel were very poor. I am not writing this in any hysterical manner, but would recommend you take a visit to the motel to check your willingness to go on using it on your website. Thank You
