We chose the City View as a base as we prepared for our hike. It is 15 mins from the airport and walking distance to a large shopping centre and a quite a few restaurants. The rooms on the higher side have sweeping views of Hobart across the river. It is just off the main,

Thank you for taking the time to send your comments. The Motel sent an email twice with full directions as to how to locate City View Motel. Full instruction is also on our web site. The Phone number you provided if it had been an Australian not New Zealand, one would have been sent an SMS with instructions as well. There are also 5 signs on the Highway with instruction to locate the Motel. With regards linen, thank you we will look into that. With regards to the sink, please understand that we are a motel not a serviced apartment, thus although we like to give more than a normal motel, yes we still have restrictions with how much to provide when our goal is to offer more than our room rate would suggest. (More services at the lowest price possible) Once again thank you for staying with us, much appreciated.
