Don't be fooled by the name; this isn't really a motel, more like an Air B&B. From what I saw, it just comprises two units in the backyard of a house in a residential road, just off the front at Devonport. Off road parking is just on the single driveway of the house and so your car can get blocked in. There is no reception. When we arrived, the owners were absent and had left us a note on the front door. They were also absent when we left next morning; so we never saw them. Therefore, make sure that you reserve a room here with the credit card that gives you the best exchange rate. We didn't but had no opportunity to pay with the pre-paid card that we brought with us for the purpose. Despite these negative points, our room was quiet, comfortable and well equipped with a great shower and full kitchenette. Soap and shampoo were present in dispenser bottles in the shower, but there was no hand soap on the basin, which was strange and a bit inconvenient. There was also no shelf in the shower for your own toiletries and the towels were pretty worn and a bit grey. These are pretty minor points, but could easily be rectified by the owners. The house is well located, being only a short walk from the harbour and all of the restaurants in Devonport and so this represents a very good base when staying in the area.
