    Superb

    The room I had appeared to have been recently renovated as the bathroom was immaculate, the bed linen and covers were high quality and the carpet was unmarked and very good quality.

    Very good

    Good size room. overall a bit neutral about the place.

    Disappointed that the rooms had no sea view - although there was a great one from the lift!

    Fabulous

    Inside was clean and we had the option of cooking our own meals. The place was very private and although it appeared full we did not see many people.

    We arrived after 8pm, so while looking forward to a cup of tea there were no tea bags in the apartment and it was too late to ask at reception. Also we couldn't see the windows were open, thus the first night we had a lot of traffic noise in the room.

    bed was comfortable

    1. not enough car spaces had to park away and walk very late at night 2. NO AIRCONDITIONING and was very very very hot and stuffy. 3. Shower recess to get into was impossible for me was very high and very very narrow. 4. Lift was broken in morning No signs on lift and we were 3 floors up not very impressed with motel will not stay again.

    We had one of the older rooms but it was as clean as we have ever found in a Motel room of it's age. Having just returned from a stay in a less than clean apartment on the Gold Coast we were very, very impressed!!

    Superb

    Great location, practically across the road from Wrest Point Casino where we were attending a show. The beds were very comfortable. The rooms though not really large were still spacious in their own way with a more than adequate kitchenette. Mini bar prices were quite fair.

    The main thing I did not like was that the remote control did not work, meaning when I was relaxing watching TV in bed I had to get up to turn it change channels/turn it off - would rewake me when I would prefer to have drifted off to sleep and the timer switch the TV off. Quite minor, but one of the luxuries I like. No views, but not a priority and for the price I paid for the accommodation, I was more than happy and impressed with room.

    its got easy access onto to roads and off as well. lots of parking and you don't get blocked in either

    you do hear the traffic all nite but you are next to a main road

    Very good

    The ease for a mature person with walking problems to have a lift, and to be able to relax and look at the panoramic view, with easy access to places of interest, to be able to drive easy

    The lack of plates, for older people to bring back to room and have dinner,as we are all not able to get out at night to buy meal, also need more coffee and biscuits would be lovely, and that could be done on request upon arrival for the seniors or offered even more appealing,

    Very good

    Location to Sandy Bay and a nice walk though to cafe in Battery Point. Clean room but very basic motel style accommodation. Noticed a lot of the guests had cars parked at the motel so parking availability a positive for those who need it.

    Overpriced for motel style accommodation. Can do better in Hobart.
