Very good 8,0
We spent two nights. The proximity to Port Arthur Historic Site was great. The room was spacious, basic kitchen appliances but the vanity basin was where the fridge & microwave were. The same basin you cleaned your teeth was where you washed your cups. The unit was clean & tidy.

not so family friendly
the room had a nice view, but it was a very run down building.hardly family friendly as the tennis courts was over grown and no net up.

Disappointed in the Villa's.
Stayed 2 nights here, in a two bedroom Villa with Showered Bathroom. Unfortunately this place really needs a lot of Maintenance. Musty Smell, Very dated furniture, rotten boards on the Veranda. The water is discoloured and we didn't drink it, they do supply bottled water for drinking. You have to park at the rear and wheel your Bags around to the front to enter your Room. The Hotel itself is an Antique, the atmosphere is good, lots of people visited for Dinner, with a Fire Place. The Food was very good.

Good location but old & need revamp
The whole place need revamp or reno. It’s pretty old. Atmosphere is good surroundings by trees & water. Room is clean but old, toilet smell, TV and remote not working. WiFi only at the bar & restaurant. Foods was great. There is only one staff (lady) that really doing everything by herself.

Lovely position
The view is just lovely, and the room quite spacious. Having said that, the hotel is needing a lot of work, with grass and shrubs growing from the gutters, lots of gardening maintenance to be done, and getting on top of the water issue, for we had no water at all on Sunday morning (the office opens at 12pm, so we couldn’t report it).

No communication no water
All taps were leaking. Water was brown no notifications or signs about why or whether it was drinkable or not. Water Pump broke and no notification so no showers. Lady was very rude at the check in desk. No ph. Number to call when problems occurred. Number on website was not current and disconnected. Not enough plates for my family only 3. Room for 4. Every other motel booked in I received some sort of communication prior, email or text message. With information on what I needed to know. I received nothing from this place. Overall, will not go back.

Was ignored by the receptionist until my partner also spoke to her. Reception doesn't open until 12pm. You could connect to the wifi but no internet and they didn't tell us. Water was yellow and not for drinking. Found that out later as well and went to reception to get more bottled water. Overall horrible service.
