Fair 4,0
The hotel is ok, the restaurant is terrible.
Robert, au2 night romance trip
Very good 8,0
Not too bad
Good for a cheap stay but felt that we were a nuisance as we weren’t forking out money. Showers are very small in the cheaper rooms don’t use if claustrophobic! Feet hung off the double bed. No wifi at all but it says they have. Didn’t want new towel so put do not disturb sign, but that was ignored and things moved around! Food wasn’t brilliant and unorganised and flustered Grounds are old too. But the air, being close to the site is great

Seen better days...
This place is a 60s style "motor inn" designed mainly for one-night stay tourists of the Port Arthur site...the proprietors are nice enough, but don't need to care about generating repeat business...rooms and their appointments are clean but very plain and shopworn...the wifi system is barely functional...we'd recommend staying in a place further south, driving into PA for the day only...

Fabulous location. GREAT food in restaurant onsite. Amazing views over port Arthur historic site, but the property is needing refurbishment. Tired and dated.
