We (group of 6 women) stayed for 2 nights recently. All 3 rooms had double beds which were so comfortable. Rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Will be staying there when we return.

Have stayed a few times now. Always clean and tidy. Friendly staff. Good location to café and Woolies. Easy trip out from town. Close to Casino if you are inclined. Like the rooms which we can park directly outside.

The rooms are very clean and tidy - for the price I would have expected nicer finishes. I wouldn't say the 'gym' or sauna was a selling point. No weights what so ever and the machines are old and dilapidated. Planned to train but it wasn't possible here. Overall it was comfortable but pricy for what it was

We stayed at Motel 429 the night of arrival in and night before departure from Tasmania. Each time check in was very easy and we got a pint of milk for our coffee. My brother and i were traveling together so we needed to queen beds. We both agreed that the beds were very comfortable. Location is not exactly central...

We had one of the freshly renovated rooms. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and provided. I would highly recommend. As an extra bonus, street food vans would set up across the road each night which made for a convenient meal/snack. My only very minor criticisms are that the freezer part of the fridge did not keep our...

We used to stay here quite a bit until the prices went up in line with the renovated rooms. While we have not experienced the older unrenovated ground floor rooms I have read about, there seems to be quite a variation between even the renovated ones. We got room 309 on the 3rd floor and while reasonably large and modern...

The lady in the front office was very kind and friendly. She allowed me to check in a little early. The room was neat, clean and most importantly nice and warm. I always judge a place by the bathroom, and the bathroom was great, fitted out with a good new shower, and clean fluffy white towels. The only negative was...

Modern looking, clean well situated accomodation just outside of Hobart CBD. Lovely views overlooking the bay and Wrest Point Casino almost directly opposite. Onsite car parking is at a minimum at present due to construction works however some road parking appeared to be an option. Hotel has a lift, vending machines and after hours security access options. Happy with the...

Much more than a motel. Quite classy and well presented. There was milk and tea coffee provided. Mini bar was very reasonably priced - $4 and $5 dollar beers as an example. Toaster. Very pleasantly surprised and will return.

Don't let the exterior fool you. The rooms are new and modem looking with modern decor. Nice and clean with a great view from the upper floor rooms. The glass lift also gives a nice view over the bay and towards the casino. The ground floor queen rooms are smaller but for us travelling as a couple they were fine....
