I phoned the motel and booked a room for the one night. Helen the owner was very obliging and extremely polite in her manner. The motel room was very lovely and clean. We even thought of staying another night but didn't due to time. The bed was very comfortable and highly recommend the motel.

Very interesting town to look around. On the highway before the town there was a billboard advertising rooms at the Ross Motel for X$ (can't remember exact price - but very cheap) when we got there you couldn't even get a camp site for that price, The motel room was many times the price. The people were very friendly and... More

Stayed here for business purposes, quaint location and facilities. Setting is right on the river. Welcoming host. Kitchen facilities are a little limiting however. Would recommend and would stay there again.

Hello Rob, thankyou for your comments. The rooms are not for cooking a full meal in and are appointed with light meal utilies, however, we do have alternative budget accommodation that does allow you to do the big cook up. Hoping there is a next time for you to stay and we can show you the alternatives. More

Stopped overnight here between Hobart & Launceston. This motel is the only one in town (other than cottages and B&B's) so did rely on previous reviews on TripAdvisor to guide me.

We arrived without a booking on a very cold night and were more than happy to take the only room still available which was a twin. The room was spacious and clean, and eventually it proved to be comfortable as well. While it was not surprising that it would not be pre-heated given that it was not booked, it did... More

Clean, quiet motel in a very beautiful historic town with a variety of dining choices just a short walk away. Perfect overnight stop if you are travelling in Tassie and you want to see some of its history. Great photo opportunities to take shots of early settler churches and a superb convict built bridge. Recommended.

I was a lone female traveller, traveling for work. I felt comfortable and safe here. Room was clean and up to date. It was cold weather and the heater kept the room nice and warm. I was able to walk to the nearby Man-o-ross hotel for dinner.
