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.

We thought this place was great - might need some little things fixing but apparently being pulled down next 18 months..

Jet lagged and weary
Had a nice time overall. The main issue I had was that we were not allowed early access to the room despite the fact it had been cleaned. Having spent 35hrs travelling, you would think that the owner would go the extra mile to accommodate us but we were given the key and told to wait an hour. Nobody entered or left the room while we sat outside it waiting in the car.
