      We stayed for two nights in this Motel, Room 30 was a bit oppressive to the breathing, another lake side room on second floor was much better. BUT, lot of insects flew into room after we turned on lights :-( Truely hope you can install the mosquito screen fo r the great windows. Thanks.

      Quiet location but you need to have a car”
      It is only a few minutes to New Town and less than 15 minutes to North Hobart / Hobart. The room is very basic but all facilities are there. Bed is comfortable and bathroom contains all amenities. Shower gels, hand lotions etc are from dispensers. There is a communal kitchen if you want to cook. Reception and cleaning staff are very friendly and helpful. There is enough parking space in the Lodge and there is also street parking. For the price you pay compared with the price in the Hobart CBD, it is value for money.

      Very cute and comfy hotel”
      Everything is good according to the hotel standard. The decoration is well designed. I like it. The only problem is 1 there is not enough parking space. if you return after 9 pm, you are most likely have to park on a street. Additionally, a wooden corridor floor making a noise which can disturb other guests when I return late night.

      Comfort at its best”
      Very quiet and relaxing environment, very accommodating and friendly staff, and great room with all amenities in place
      Public transportation is not so efficient in the area. There is a bus stop near the hotel but the interval is every hour and during the weekends there is no public transportation. We have to walk to the main road which is around 20-30 minutes walk where one can ride buses in 10-minute intervals. The hotel nonetheless is very comfortable and serene. The view is really nice, you can see both the river and mt. Wellington from your room. The staff is also very friendly and supportive.

      Even though i called to confirm THAT DAY our key wasn't left out for after hours check in like we were told it would be. We were woken up to a man screaming vile things at a woman and when I told the staff they said "oh well that man has now checked out". Not a great response to potential violence against women.

      We were placed in the "Heritage Cottage" which appeared to be the original house on the site & converted into a number of rooms. Although it is an old building, it was a large, clean & comfortable room with a very comfortable bed. We would use this Motel again if the need arose.

      Decent place to stay but needs to be updated”
      This place looks nicer on the photos. Single room I booked was quite small and the bed not too comfortable. There was only one window but as the room was on the ground floor I didn't feel safe having it opened because someone could easily enter the room while sleeping as the window was right next to the door. Anyone could reach the door knob. The whole place needs to be updated. It is as clean as it could be taking this fact into account. Location isn't great. If you don't have your own wheels, forget about sleeping here. With car it is 15min drive to the centre of Hobart.

      We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Hobart. It is a nice location that we found easy to get everywhere from here. Our only complaint is the communal kitchen, which was closed until 9 am on the weekends. Our children were up at 7 and starving, so the timing was less than ideal.

      Disappointed ”
      The room we were supposed to check in was dusty as someone left the window open for 5 days as per the reception guy. This wasnt mentioned when we were checked in by a lady who told there was someone who stayed before just previous evening. I requested to clean the room and bedsheet as we were allergic to dust. But the lady didnt even bothered to make our bed properly. I requested for another room to be told that all the rooms were full whereas the signboard said vacancy. We were just staying out the whole day and avoiding to go back to the room to avoid sneezing. Even though we were tired from the journey, we barely slept due to dusty room. No rubbish bin in the bathroom. No scrub to do the dishes only dishwashing liquid was available. Stay at waterfront lodge was the only annoying thing that we faced during our Australian journey.
