We stayed at their sister accom. I think it was white beach. Kids play park. Beach near by. A short 5 min drive from the historical site. Lovely quant clean little cottage. We enjoyed our stay and would come again. Next time would love kid free and to stay at the motor inn and do the ghost tour.

It was a dated but clean room. Good for one night, and easy access to Port Arthur. What was a must-try was the restaurant on site. Homely delicious food with a good view and wonderful staff. I think it was Audrey, and she was very friendly. We had the best Guinness pie there.

The motor inn is right at the Port Arthur site with your our entrance to Port Arthur and a restaurant with a fantastic view of the historic site and bay. The bar is friendly and rooms are comfortable and warm. A must see. The motel can arrange all tours with discounts on most things and free access to Port Arthur...

You cannot get a better location to explore the Port Arthur Historic Site. Rooms are basic but clean with everything you need for a short stay. Meals are 10/10 - the seafood chowder is great as was the Guinness pie! Phill in the restaurant was knowledgeable and provided superb service, could not ask for a better waiter, would come back...

Loved it. Started my tour of Tasmania here, and although I arrived without a booking, the staff were only too helpful in sorting me out for my perfect start. OK, the place is dated, but that is part of the character of the landscape. Much preferable than some modern concrete structure with no sympathy for the environment. Room had all...

We spent a night at the inn. Quite easy to check in even though we were late, the lady at the restaurant handles it for you. Room Was comfortable and very clean. The only issue is the lack of phone reception in port Arthur in general. The restaurant seemed quite busy and requires a booking as they get fairly booked....

A great view from the restaurant however the meal I ordered did not meet my expectations. My beef schnitzel was OK but I could not eat the vegetables as they were not cooked enough. The waitress also called me 'darl'.

Could not have been better located, staff were very helpful and explained & booked trips for us. Rooms were basic but very clean Great views from the restaurant and the food was good. Not a 5 star resort but we'd stay there again when we come back to Port Arthur

Room excellent, overlooking the historic site. Access to the Port Arthur grounds through the gate just along side our room. Staff friendly, very helpful ensuring we had all the information needed to make most of our time there and then made the bookings on our behalf. Restaurant for dinner very busy with bus load of people in yet our dinner...
