This place is very very noisy and a little bit scary . Had some bloke drop bottles off the balcony smashing at our front door. Asked him to stop it and got threatened by his trady mates. Real nice.

We stayed in a family room for 1 night. Despite the noise and smoking fume from the neighbouring room, the accommodation was pleasant in that many facilities are provided. Electric blankets on the single beds were great for the cold night and there was also sufficient space in the room for a comfortable and homey feel. Although there were a... More

Basic motel with basic amenities. Staff were very friendly and helpful. You could hear the traffic from the motel room, however it was not overbearing. Rooms were clean and tidy, with the ensuite fresh. Meals were of good value.

Stayed in a double room and other family in a family room for 5 days. Rooms quite spacious and a reasonable price. Carpet could do with replacing, had a few stains but as with the rest of the room it was very clean, bed was comfortable. If you are wanting dinner in the restaurant particularly on Friday or Saturday it's... More

Pictures look a bit different to the actual rooms. The showers were great, hot and high pressure water. Rooms could do with a makeover, but we're reasonable. Carpet manky, old looking kitchen cupboards and doors, but towels super fluffy. No river views from most (?) of the rooms.

Stayed just one night so as to attend a birthday party down the road, and was very impressed. The room is very much as I remember the motels of the 60's and 70's- large and only basically furnished, but clean, comfortable, and very good value. The furnishings were pretty new. Bathroom good- clean, excellent shower pressure. Reception is in the... More

Free wifi is awesome, given straight away during check in. Good for overnight stay and room is well equipped for longer one too. Some may not like the appearance from the outside? Nearby tavern/pub is a bliss.

Was a lovely clean room. Plenty on space. Had a small fridge and kettle and toaster with cutlery and tea and coffee provisions. We ordered breakfast to be delivered to our room and it was on time and hot which was very nice. Only a 10 minute drive out of launceston cbd and 35 minutes to Beaconsfield.

Lunch today as a local living in Trevallyn. I was appalled at my lunch which arrived after 20 mins was advertised as Roast!! Turkey and Ham. My meal was stone motherless cold, smothered in gravy which was cold and congealed. Vegetables and one potato 50mm and definitely Un- Roasted. Two mouthfuls and pushed to one side until my overseas guest... More
