There were 4 in the group and, although, we were given interconnecting rooms, I found the 2 rooms too old. The second shower did not have a soap holder which I found totally unacceptable. The bathroom had a towel holder but it was too high. The single beds need replacing as it was too old as well.There were no racks to hang the clothes in the bathroom. The rooms definitely need renovation and I definitely would not recommend this motel to friends or family. I would prefer to pay more for a newer/slightly better place.

I am sorry you were obviously disappointed with your stay at our Property. As you have chosen to leave an anonymous review, I have no indication as to the rate you paid for what must have been our advertised ECONOMY Family Inter-connecting rooms. I assume it was well under $100 per room which, for Peak Tourist season in Tasmania, would normally be considered very reasonable. We have this option available with the intention of providing low cost accommodation for families holidaying in our area. Generally our guests who choose this option are wanting a clean and comfortable place to lay their heads without blowing the budget. Should you decide to stay with us again in the future, I would suggest you opt for our Standard, Executive or Superior rooms, these are of course at a higher rate but offer the comforts you obviously expect. A 1/5 score is rather low when I assume your room was to our usual high standard of cleanliness, endless hot water in both bathrooms, free internet, free movies, etc... Tip for future travel - if 'Economy' is the lead-in descriptor, please don't misread it for Luxury.

The location is really great, just over the road from a typical Tasmanian pristine beach, and on the other road a very pleasant river/inlet. The hotel is basic but ok, as you'd expect from this vitage. Owners were great, we had a problem late at night and they were right on it, were happy to get it fixed no worried.
