    The convenience and the quickness in response to our booking...........all in all the stay was excellent

  • Couple

    We loved the old house where we're staying in. The have a motel part and a lodge part, so if you're in to romantic, you must stay in the lodge (house) part, it's lovely! =)

    When we checked in it wasn't as clean as we expected for the style of the motel. And by not clean we mean, they never cleaned under the bed and our socks were dirty when putting our shoes of at the door and walking to the bed. That says enough. =) But that's the only downside and they can improve that. ;)

    Location , it was handy & very close to Hobart plus cheap

    The walls between the rooms are like paper so you can hear everything if you know what I mean,because of that we left at 7.30am Also there is no nylon curtains so you actually have to close the fabric curtains during the daylight, as all guest walk past the room, we thought we where getting a lake view but none of the rooms have this unless you have a turtle neck, our view was the carpark. You get what you pay for.

  • Couple

    Very comfortable, very reasonable price.

    Some noisy people in other rooms late at night.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    It was quiet and convenient to where we wanted to stay in Hobart.Facilities in our room were excellent

  • Single
    3.2

    I did not like anything aobut this stay at Leisure wood. It was way too far from Hobart that cost about $20 by Taxi and no one around in case you have an emergency

    I got locked out of my room after hours due to a huge commotion in the hallway from someone down the hall at 2am then no one would answer the "after hours" or emargency phone to let me back in. I spent the rest of the night in the lobby.and only at 7:30 am did someone answer my call after hours of calling. Do Not Rent from this low cost Motel

  • Single

    quickly and efficiently booked in and given same level access. great views and quiet accommodation.

  • Single

    No one clean my room and the bathroom had bload stain on the walls

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    It was an excellent location at a very good price.

    Room was smallish and carparking was limited.

  • Couple
    4.2

    The room we had was infested with beetles, we checked in and checked out the following day

  • Older travelers
    3.8

    The staffs manor is very poor and I would never stay there ever again or recomend any to stay ther

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Plenty of room. Good shower. Heating (very important to my wife!)

    No complaints

  • Couple
    7.4

    It's worthy, clean room. The view is very good.

    The kitchen, I would rather say it is a canteen. And they dont even have a knife can cut the meat.

  • Single
    4.6

    It was relatively cheap

    Even though I stayed in the higher cost apartment, there was no parking available - all spaces full - had to park up on the road

  • Single
    8.2

    i have stayed here before but this time i had a different room. it was very much worth the money and would reccommend to anyone wanting a cheaper weekend away or even for business. close to the city approx 10 to 15 drive depending on traffic and very close to beach walking tracks that go all the way to the tasman bridge. i will stay here again

    i liked its easy access to the city waking tracks and easy going atmosphire
