Brilliant hosts, great dining given the situ ( produce quality is high ), comfy rooms, superb large parking arena for the weary traveller in larger fleet. Only downside, some noise from surrounds of a night and shower cubicle was a tad tight, overall excellent experience and highly recommend!

Jean M, Owner at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your great review. We do actually have plans for enlarging the showers but have not had the opportunity to make it happen yet, still in the planning stage, but will get there. We really appreciate your comments and hope to see you again soon. Regards, Jean and staff

"Pleasant stay will return."

12/08/2018

Visiting Hobart on family matters this was a perfect place to stay. The rooms were clean and well appointed although the outlook from our window was not to be raved about. Our room was on the road side yet very quite. What was exceptional though were the staff - always welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We ate breakfast and dinner here and the food was always fresh and flavoursome. The only down side is if you wanted to go elsewhere for dinner you needed a car to get to them. There was plenty of onsite parking so despite being nearly full when we were visiting we had no problem no matter what time we returned to the hotel. If you stay here a car really is a must as it is somewhat out of Hobart (approx. 9km).

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. We really appreciate your score and your comments. Letting other guests know the importance of having a car is very important, it will make their stay more enjoyable. I am pleased you found us and our staff helpful, we all enjoy our guests. Hope to see you again. Regards, Jean and staff

"A Revelation for a City Motel"

5
28/07/2018

In general, most city motels are just a cheap alternative to their larger downtown cousins and as such, your expectations about facilities and service are normally not too high. We found the Balmoral to be a revelation. It is definitely somewhere we would book into again by choice, not just the financial advantage. Our two rooms were very well equipped, meticulously clean and the welcome received upon check in was outstanding. Despite its closeness to the main road, we heard almost no noise most of the night. We really enjoyed dinner and breakfast in their restaurant. Good home style cooking, well prepared and very tasty. Its location is within a very short drive of downtown Hobart and the only thing to keep in mind is that it is inward towards downtown, as their is no gap in the centre median at that spot. Well worth a stay if looking for affordable accommodation in Hobart and you will get more than expected.

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Good morning Frozen Aussie. Thank you so much for your great review. All of us here at the Balmoral try our hardest to make every guests stay the best it can be so your comments are very much appreciated. It is really rewarding for us to hear such good things. I hope we see you again. Regards, Jean and staff

We have been there for the 2nd time and it is always a pleasure to be there as we have celebrated Christmas- in- July celebration. The decoration is the best that I have ever seen in any venue ever before. The staff is friendly and courteous and the food is always fresh and very tasty. We even had a bottle of wine delivered to our table.

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your kind words. It is always a pleasure to see our Christmas in July guests and look forward to seeing you again. Regards, Jean and Staff.

This motel is situated within a short distance of most parts of Hobart, which made it very easy to get to the places I needed to go quickly. Even though it's relatively budget priced I was very pleasantly surprised, having stayed in others that cost a lot more. The room was a good size, clean and well laid out, the restaurant is top class with very good food, and their

"Very comfortable establishment run by friendly, consumate professionals."

23/06/2018

We have now stayed at the Balmoral twice, months apart. To be greeted with the same exacting standards on both occasions show that the management / owners have years of experience in the industry. The polished, friendly service from the booking through to checkout could only come from years honing the craft of hospitality. The delicate balance of being welcoming but understanding of tired well travelled guests who want for a warm comfortable bed, a steaming hot shower and a warm filling meal. What a refreshing, positive experience. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed with everything one could want. Whilst right on the highway the noise is a gentle hum and isnt distracting in any way but the location allows the perfect quick run directly into the city. The food menu changed from our previous stay and both times the meals were delivered promptly by the a gentleman who was born to welcome guests. Polite, friendly and a wealth of information. The menu caters for all tastes and cannot be faulted. We are so very relieved to find a perfect accommodation solution for when we visit Hobart.

Jean M, Owner at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your very kind words. We really appreciate your comments and both the staff and ourselves look forward to seeing you again when next in Hobart. We would also like to thank you for taking your valuable time to write this comprehensive review, it not only helps us to know we are performing well, but also gives our staff a "pat on the back" that they deserve. Thank you. Regards, Jean and staff

"Comfy & Friendly - but no chair"

16/05/2018

Booked this place directly and the owner (I presume) was very helpful, and left key out for me, due to late arrival and early departure did not meet them.... The room was bight and airy and the bed comfy, all and just what I wanted. Only complaint, and I may fit into a small category, but there was no chair to work at the desk....not a big deal, but not much fun working on a coffee table....gives me a sore back

Jean M, Owner at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. I can only assume you were the gentleman I spoke to on the phone last night as your user name does not always show your surname. I am so sorry about the work space, as I explained when you booked we were close to full and only had standard family rooms left. As promised I moved you to an executive family room, when something opened up, so at least you would have a nice king bed. None of our 2 family rooms have desks and chairs suitable for our corporate clients, normally we do not put corporate guests into these rooms. I am sorry I could not put you in one of our other rooms which is set up with work space, suitable chairs, lighting etc. As the storm damage to Hobart has taken all of these type rooms for relief workers we were in a position of only having a leisure family room availble. I do hope you will stay again when we can show you a corporate room and make you comfortable. I really appreciate your comments on the other things in the room and also the remarks about our conversations that night. Again I am really sorry I could not give you a corporate room for your booking. Regards, Jean Manager/Owner

very nice place, out of Hobart about 8 ks. clean and tidy, wifi, good dining room, car parking, anything one would want. Possibly easier to find with a GPS as it is on a major divided highway and we went passed twice. Being on a down slope hill it could be missed.

I was looking for some last minute accommodation in Hobart around New Year's time and found this one. Its reasonably priced and located around 6-7 km from Hobart waterfront.The front desk staff are very attentive and they try make you feel at home. The rooms were reasonably sized and clean as well. One can take a quick taxi ride/Uber to go to the Hobart pier from the hotel. All in all, a nice stay at a short nice in Hobart area.

The bathroom and bathroom floor as well as the living room floor - full of pubic hairs, long hairs, cut finger nails..... It looked like the room wasn't cleaned in a long while. Bed sheets were not clean. All in all a bad experience. No come back!

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
I am very sorry to hear of your experience with your room. We pride ourselves on our cleaniless normally and cannot understand what has happened here. If we had have known at the time we could have changed your room (if one available)or at least corrected what was wrong. Again I apologise for your dissapointment. If you feel that you could stay again please ring me directly. Regards, Jean Muller, Manager

This is our second stay at Best Western Balmoral Hobart and we enjoyed it just as much as our first stay. Our room was so comfortable and clean with everything that we needed. Continental breakfast had so many choices and the restaurant is great. The staff are all so friendly and helpful and our meals in the restaurant were delicious. Thank you for all making our stay so pleasant and when we holiday in Hobart again we will most definitely be staying with you. What a great start to our Holiday.

"Good Motel in central location"

4
28/09/2017

Been a couple of years since our last visit and glad to see things had not deteriorated, room was a good size with king bed, comfortable lounge, tea and coffee making facilities. Bathroom little dated but clean and everything required was provided. WiFi was good speed and easy connection. Front desk staff very friendly and welcoming. Cooked or continental breakfast available, efficient and courteous service and reasonably priced food with good servings and plenty of extra's to start off a long day. One suggestion would be to replace the ageing pillows which were quite hard and uncomfortable. But if looking for a reasonable priced motel in central location with plenty of parking and restaurant available on site would happily recommend.

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. Its always nice to see returning guests and good to hear that our constant renovations are appreciated. Sorry to hear about your pillows I will look into that immediately. Hopefully we may see you back even if its in a couple more years like this time. Regards, Jean and staff

01/09/2017

Good value for money on a deal that we got which included a continental breakfast. Breakfast pre-purchased is a good value option as well. Clean rooms for the age. Suprisingly quiet considering location on a very busy road. Restaurant on site for those who don't want to venture out. Parking was "snug" outside rooms with not much space to open doors.

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review

As I have mentioned before, this motel is great value for visitors to the Hobart area especially coming in from the north of the state. Easy to find on the Brooker Highway.

07/08/2017

We stayed at The Best Western on the Brooker Hwy which was convenient, parking available & no real issues from highway noise. My main negative feedback would be that the Best Western needs to replace all its old lumpy smelly pillows with new ones, it was rather unpleasant to put your head on each night. Some stains on the lounge, nails sticking up between the joins in the lino & carpet, towel rail was falling off, tiles fallen off had been fixed back to the wall with screws etc. My husband found some long hairs in the bed and in the bathroom which made him question how good the cleaners were. kitchenette was clean and very handy. We had plenty of hot water for showers. Service at reception was lovely.

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your feedback. I do apologise for your problems with the pillows etc in your room. It is always good to receive feedback, it allows us to relook at what may need attention in our rooms. We are continuously renewing and replacing items in each room and in fact the pillows in our superior and executive rooms have just been replaced. I will attend to replacing the standard room pillows immediately. As for any hairs you found I can only apologise, our cleaners are normally very good. I am glad you found the service and lack of traffic noise good and hope we see you in the future. Again thank you for the feedback. Regards, Jean and staff

"Value for money "

29/07/2017

If your wanting to stay somewhere just out of the city this offers great value for money. You are right on the main road in/out of Hobart; yet accessible to everything , but it is still quiet, comfortable and clean.

This was our 3rd time that we celebrated Christmas in July at the Balmoral Motor Inn and we have not been disappointed. The food was excellent and the deserts are also very yummy.

The place is well kept, lovely host. We were pleasantly surprised by the standards and upkeep! Loved the place to the max. The toilet is a little small but that's ok, it's still a decent size for me! The shower is the type with removable shower head! I love everything about the room, though I stayed on the second floor, it was easy! The laundry service on site were great! They have both washer and dryer! The best part is the breakfast, though it's a simple one, it at least gave us a good head start! If I visit Tasmania again, would come back and stay here again!

Well, let me firstly say I would recommend this little motel to anyone who needs accommodation, even if your staying in Hobart as it's only 10 min drive. The staff were very friendly and excellent to deal with. The room it's self was extremely clean and the bed was nice and soft. We had breakfast each morning in the dinning room and was able to have conversations with the owners, that's not something you can do at other motels. Overall we were extremely please and would stay here again no questions asked.

"Great property with a friendly staff and really good beds"

15/04/2017

Just spent Easter weekend at the BW Balmoral Inn. This trip was my first to Tasmania and I wanted to see the MONA and do some hiking. I booked 2 nights here & would recommend this motel to anyone. Location is good for going to MONA and hiking if you don't want to be in the downtown area (and don't want to pay for parking, etc). More of a suburban than urban location - so you may have to drive to do things, but it's easy to get anywhere. I went to Salamanca Market & MONA yesterday - I checkout this morning after breakfast and will head to Mt. Wellington to go hiking. The front desk reception is open til 9:30pm, after that, there's a drop box for your key and you have to call the desk for information. The front desk lady was extremely nice and friendly. I don't know if this is a family run operation or not, but I get the impression it is and I think they take great pride in their work here and they take great care of their product. If it's not a family run operation, they've done a great job with their hiring. They have a restaurant here - with continental or hot made-to-order options. Very friendly & good staff there. I only had breakfast, but they have dinner as well. They have a mini-bar in the room with a few snacks and beverages. Internet connection is strong throughout the building - I was able to watch a movie on my iPad with no buffering - which doesn't always happen with hotels. I was in Room 24, which is on the 2nd floor of the hotel - great room, spacious with a sitting area and a shower with fantastic water pressure and a really good bed with down comforter, a small 2-person dining table/desk, and a sofa with coffee table. I would definitely stay here again & recommend. As a Best Western Platinum elite, I received a welcome amenity and an upgrade to an Executive Room. I'm a Platinum with Hyatt, a Gold with Hilton, and a Gold with Starwood and I rarely (if ever) get upgrades at any of those chains, so continually impressed by Best Western as my budget chain when traveling. This experience at this hotel builds my loyalty to the brand. This hotel is good people running a good product.

Jean M, Owner at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your great review. It was lovely meeting you and although only a few of us are actual family, the rest of the staff are like our family. Most have been here for up to 16 years and others have come, gone and come back since they were 15yr olds. We are extremely lucky to have such caring staff. We all really care about our guests comfort and their loyalty to the brand. Having been a BW property for over 30 years this is also like a family to us. Again we really appreciate your kind words and do hope we will see you again in the future some time. Regards, Jean and staff

Friendly staff, motel looks ok, a little old but does the job. Bedding was comfortable and clean as was the room. There is no pay tv which was dissapointing. Wifi was very good as the breakfast was also nice with a surprising amount of items available. Would stay there again but would choose a hotel with pay tv before this one.

Jean M, Manager at Best Western Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a comfortable night and good breakfast. I am sorry that our lack of pay tv did not suit your needs. Regards, Jean and staff

"A good basic motel"

Stayed two nights when we arrived in Tassie. Staff were friendly and efficient. The stairs were a killer with our big bags but we managed. Good clean room with good ammenity. Small shoer but nice shower outlet. Bed was okay but nor great. Overall very happy, good room value. Not in the town, not really near anything of interest that I could see. Car parking is quite tight and the place seemed to be very busy so parking got interesting with a larger car but there is nothing to complain about with free parking. Had dinner in the restaurant one night and the food too is quite basic but edible and of sufficient quantitiy. A good little bar with a good selection as well. Waitress was friendly. Nothing outstandingly good nor bad to say.

Awesome place to stay! First holiday in a long time, unfortunately, one of us got sick, cutting into our time only to share with the other as the first got better. Staff were very helpful and supportive, the restaurant was a delight, parking was close and the king size bed was extremely comfortable. Central to everything, and easy to find. We will go back again to do the things we planned before we got sick.

This is our second stay at the Best Western Balmoral and I wouldn't stay anywhere else if just needing a motel room. The beds are extremely comfortable and the sheets are so fresh and clean. The rooms have been updated and have a decent size tv, couch, table and chairs, ironing board and iron, mini bar and more. The bathrooms are ensuite style but all you need. No cold showers here! There is a restaurant on site which also offers room service for breakfast and dinner. Meals are well priced and there is a special of the day which is very inexpensive .. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Close to the entertainment centre but also not too far from the city. Although it is situated right on the busy Brooker Highway the double glazed Windows ensure the rooms get no traffic noise. Also a bonus is free Wifi .. Will be back again

Jean M, Owner at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review

On the highway but completely insulated from traffic noise by thick glazing. Good dining facilities and excellent value nightly specials. The roast dinner is to die for and is everything you really really wished for in a baked dinner at your local club or pub but never got. Super clean rooms and ultra friendly staff and owners. This is a winner. So close to Hobart and excellent shopping facilities very close nearby. Plenty of parking. Free laundry facilities with current model washers and dryers plus free detergent (never experienced this before). Plus free WiFi and a business centre with Internet and printing facilities - all at no cost. Unreal! Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Have been using this motel for many years. The only complaint is the amount of wifi that is on offer. I travel extensively around Australia and it's only here that I have a limited download. Appart from that I like the location and the staff, that's why I keep coming back.

Thank you so much for your review. It is always great to welcome you back. I did not realise that you were having wi fi problems, please let me know next time and we will look at it.

Spent 2 nights here and after reading other reviews it was what I expected. It was very clean, comfortable bed and pillows and nice shower. It had everything I needed. Little bit of traffic noise but very minor. The service at reception is very friendly and professional. I ate at the restaurant and the meal I had was like the rooms, basic but very nice, once again the service was great. Food a bit overpriced but convenient as it was 20meters from my room. Hotel a great location for me, I would definitely stay here again

Pleasant hotel with good location. Rooms all clean and, whilst not necessarily well appointed or luxurious, have all the basic amenities, and with big comfortable beds, and a high standard of cleanliness. What stands out for me though, is I stayed in the Wrest Point earlier that week in Hobart, and would choose this every time over that simply because every single team member here genuinely cared, was personable and gave great service. From enquiring about whether I wanted to join Best Western (first time I've ever been asked after staying at Best Westerns) to asking if I wouldn't mind our privacy being disturbed when bringing breakfast to the room. Location also is great with only a few km's to the middle of Hobart, 25 mins to the airport, 10 mins to MONA, and 30 mins to Mount Wellington. Basically, pleasant little hotel made great by a great team.

It is a neat and tidy motel where the owners/managers take great pride in decorating the dining room for Christmas in July. In fact this must have been the most decorated commercial venue that I have ever seen before. The food however- we had Barramundi, was not fresh and had quite a few bones. The coffee was more like dishwater, weak and tasteless. Unfortunately their coffee machine was out of order. However, the nibbles and vegetables plus the desert was excellent. The service was obliging and very friendly.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. It was great meeting you at one of our recent Christmas in July functions you attended. Also thank you for your lovely comments on our decorations, we pride ourselves on putting the best presentation for our functions and guests. I am sorry you did not enjoy the fish or the coffee but am pleased that the rest of the meal and function was enjoyable. Hoping to see you again at another function in the future.

Dated motel that needs a little money spent on it however the road works on the Brooker highway at the door must made it hard to attract customers, and it is due for completion NEXT year! Not a good start when you find a hair on the bathroom floor!! reported to staff / manager. Good nights sleep. Restaurant o/k but had a curry on menu--no rice!!

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay. I do remember speaking to you regarding the hair and thanking you for making it known to me. Again I apologise for this. With regards the curry, we always have rice available if a guest requests it, so please feel free to ask for any special requirements you may require if dinning with us again. The roadworks outside are unbearable I am sorry. It has caused so much trouble for our guests and ourselves and even more things are happening each day. They do promise that our side of the road will be finished by the end of this July, so lets hope this promise will be kept. I am pleased you had a good nights sleep and again thank you for your patience with the roadworks. Regards, Jean and staff

My partner and I booked into this motel as we had a last minute change of plans. The motel staff were more than accommodating and gave us a better rate than provided online and an upgrade to a king room. They also threw in a complimentary continental breakfast!! Upon entering our room quite late that night, we were very impressed that a staff member had taken the time to turn the heater on before we even checked in. That's just fantastic service! The room was very neat, tidy, warm and comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable we had ever slept on. We dined in the restaurant the next night and the meals provided are just amazing. The service was great and the waiting staff greeted you with a smile all night. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit to see family in this area. Would highly recommend if you are after a quiet and comfortable nights sleep.

04/03/2016

Well we stayed here simply because Hobart was just about booked out and what accommodation that was available was extremely expensive. Plus it was more or less in the end of town that we needed to be in I was a bit reticent about it but it actually is fine inside. My room was quite large with a lounge chair as well as a dining table and two chairs. The bed was a king split and probably a little too firm for me but I think the majority of people would find the beds quite comfy. The bathroom was quite small as was the shower stall (no bath) but there was ample supply of fluffy towels and some toiletries. There is a mini bar as well and free wi fi which was very welcome. The hotel has a restaurant on site so you can get buffet breakfast ($10) or a cooked breakfast ($20). Staff in the dining room very obliging and friendly but the "buffet" was pretty basic and coffee was just out of a vending type of machine. I didn't touch the coffee or any of the other items in the "buffet", instead I would just order poached eggs on toast. So I was paying $20 for just two ordinary poached eggs on white bread toast. I did think that was a bit rich, thank goodness costs were being covered by my Company. We didn't eat here at night but I did see that they had $15 dinner specials, which apparently change every day. Only very small gripe was the road noise. You are right alongside Brooker Hwy and, whilst the traffic does die down in the week small hours it is quite loud most of the time and starts at about 5am. So that wasn't very conducive for me to getting a good nights sleep. I was in a ground floor room, though and I did see that the upstairs rooms have a glassed-in corridor so it's possible that the upstairs rooms would be a bit more insulated from the noise. I have to admit I was overall pleasantly surprised, and it turned out to be an OK place to stay.

I stayed here for 4 nights as a holiday in Hobart. The room was excellent as was the food in the Restaurant - well priced, especially the $15 nightly 'special'. It was really nice to have an 'on the spot' cooked breakfast as opposed to the 'buffet' cooked breakfasts I am normally used to. The bed was extremely comfortable and the Mini-Bar items were at near 'pub' prices. The Wi-Fi was great. My room was upstairs so I had to 'muscle' my luggage up as there was no elevator or ramp - a 'minor' problem. Overall a 'wonderful' experience in no due part to the excellent friendly staff. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay.

We started our family trip (6 adults and 2 children) in Hobart and stayed at the balmoral and were very happy, all 3 rooms were spotless and comfortable the continental breakfast was very generous. Spent another 5 nights in different motels and were more the happy to be back at the balmoral for our last 2 nights!!! Will be back and so will our friends. Thank you guys for your hospitality.

We stayed at the Balmoral as it was hard to get accommodation in Hobart at this time of the year but much to my surprise our room was rather nice. The room was lovely and clean and the king size bed was really comfortable. The rate was very reasonable considering it is peak tourist season and the rate included continental breakfast. It is only a short drive to Northgate shopping centre and the cbd is less than ten minutes away. They also have a restaurant if you want to eat there with reasonable prices plus the restaurant is also nice and clean and the room is quiet nice. Has plenty of parking just outside your room. We stayed in a king room.

Manager very pleasant and accommodating; eat all you can continental breakfast a plus but this place is really tired; our room (12) was small, bathroom had hair on floor and beds not overly comfortable. Two star at best. Won't be a return customer.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations but am pleased you found our manager and breakfast were good. Even our standard rooms, like yours, should be comfortable and clean, So I really apologise for this. I do hope that perhaps you would consider trying us again in a superior or executive room next time and have a better experience, if you mention this at the time of booking we will gladly give you a complimentary upgrade. Regards, Jean and staff

Great motor inn situated in the outer suburbs of Hobart, very close to the Derwent Entertainment Centre. Super friendly staff, lovely comfortable bed and the best pork cutlet on garlic mash I have ever eaten. Will definitely return.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. It is great to hear that our staff were their normally friendly selves and that they were helpful. Also thank you for your lovely comments on our restaurant, the pork cutlet is a favourite of mine too. See you next time and thanks again. Regards, Jean and staff

We stayed two nights everything was clean and comfortable. The only thing was a lack of power points to charge the phone. There were plenty of clean towels. We also had a nice meal in the restaurant It was nothing flash but arrived promptly and was well cooked. Also had room service on night two which arrived promptly. Despite being on the highway the room was quiet. I'd stay here again.

Lovely couple run establishment Restaurant on site we had a pleasant dining every time we went Rooms really clean Housekeeping services on spot Had enough bathroom amenities for the time we were here Was able to get milk whenever we needed it from reception Housekeeping was helpful when we just needed tea and coffee Only downfall was bed was a bit too hard for us but that's just personal preference

A very comfortable stay. Lovely new, clean rooms. Welcoming reception. Breakfast nothing to rave about, but enough to start you off on the day. Would recommend to others and would also return if in the area.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I will share your comments on our rooms with the staff as they work very hard to make the guests stay as good as it can be. When lovely remarks like yours are made it is very rewarding for all of us. Thanks again. Regards, Jean and staff

"Comfortable Accomodation But a Fair Way From Central Hobart"

05/01/2016

We found the Accomodation at Balmoral Motor Inn to be very comfortable at an affordable price. It is about 7 Km from the city which does mean planning your day carefully. There did not seem to be any amenities close by. The motel staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here if you do not want to pay the high prices required to stay in central Hobart. Although we did arrive at the peak of the holiday season.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay with us. It is very pleasing to hear you were comfortable and that the price was right. I agree a car is essential for our location, which is great for attractions such as Mona, Richmond etc. Hope we will see you again. Regards, Jean and staff

"Good spot"

31/12/2015

We visited MONA which is just down the road and found this motel to be very convenient. The room we were given was near the highway, I commented that I am a light sleeper and the staff cheerfully upgraded me to a quieter room. I was impressed by this. The room was large and comfortable, good bed, chairs and table, TV etc. lots of complementary goodies in the bathroom and lovely fluffy towels. You would need a car to stay here but I found it very easy to get to the centre of town (10 min and it was Xmas week). My Tassie friends thought it was very out of town although it seemed an easy place to navigate from. A large shopping centre is 5 min away with all you could want even a cinema, woollies etc. great spot, convenient for MONA and good for town. Really friendly and professional staff

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Good afternoon, Thank you so much for your review. We try very hard to make the guests stay as comfortable as possible and if that means an upgrade (where possible) we will. Thank you for mentioning this as most times guests do not acknowledge it. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again on another visit to Hobart. Regards, Jean and staff

"Terrific Service"

11/12/2015

I found the service at Balmoral Motor Inn to be first class. I made the booking on line and corresponded by e-mail. My flight was delayed but the Motor Inn handled everything smoothly. My room was clean and spacious and I slept wonderfully. The check-out process was flawless and the woman handling it had a warm and delightful manner. I would recommend this Motor Inn.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your review. Your comments show us that we are doing the best for our guests that we can. We pride ourselves on putting the guests first and it would appear we are succeeding. Again thank you very much, I will share your review with all staff members. Regards, Jean and staff

"Garden group accommodation"

09/12/2015

In November I took a large to Tasmania on a 12 day garden tour and prior to the tour 8 of the group organized a pre-tour and stayed at the Balmoral Motor Inn. Jean, the owner and David the manager, greeted us with enthusiasm and made us very welcome. Meals were of a high standard and the rooms very comfortable. The personal touch meant so much to the enjoyment of our stay. I would recommend this motel highly.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your very kind comments. It was a pleasure meeting you and your group and would look forward to seeing you again if you ever come back to Hobart. Thank you again. Regards, Jean, Tony David and all the staff

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you again for your wonderful review. It is always a pleasure to welcome you back. We really appreciate seeing you when in Hobart. I am sorry about the dog, we have had comments, apparently its a new "business" next door, so we will speak to him regarding the noise factor. My apologies for this disturbance and we do all we can to stop it happening again. Regards, Jean and staff

"Another very comfortable 4 nights at my favourite Hobart Motel"

02/12/2015

As usual the owner/managers, Jean and David went out of their way at short notice to make the same room available for me 4 nights in a row even though they were heavily booked at the time. This friendly obliging service has never changed over the many years that my late wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at this very comfortable establishment. The motel restaurant has the highest quality local food and wine on hand and is served to you by their very friendly staff. We could never wait to get back to stay there again and be made so welcome.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It is always a pleasure to see you and catch up with whats been happening. I hope we see you again soon. Regards, Jean and staff

"Very Welcoming"

27/11/2015

Had a school group of 78 spend two nights at this motel whilst checking out the sights of Hobart. What a huge demand on the managers, Jean + David, however they were always smiling and most accommodating. Our rooms were really comfortable. The main road traffic noise didn't effect our sleep at all. Jean has obviously spent a great deal of time setting up Christmas decorations in their dining room which created a lovely homey feel. Somehow they managed to feed the entire group at breakfast and dinner, without any fuss and bother, even catering for food allergies. We never left hungry. Thanks Jean and David.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on your groups recent stay. It was a pleasure having you and I am so pleased you enjoyed the meals and decorations, yes it does take some time but it is well worth it when I get compliments like yours. Thanks again. Regards, Jean and staff

"Not a bad motel"

23/11/2015

On quite busy road but that was no problem as it seemed to get busy early in the mornings and we liked to be up and out nice and early .Room was a nice size and very clean with a good comfy bed plenty of tea and coffee ect and had a well stocked mini bar .We ate in the Restaurant 3 times and the meals were not bad .We were a bit disappointed when one meal we ordered came with fries and when we asked if that one meal could come with Mash we were told in no uncertain terms "NO" which seemed odd as plenty of the meals that were being served came with Mash .in total we stayed there 4 nights and spent over $500 on our stay so I don't think a few Mashed potato were out of the question .All in all not a bad place to stay

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Good afternoon, Thank you for your review, I am pleased you enjoyed your accommodation. I must apologise though for the misunderstanding in the restaurant regarding the chips/mash incident. It was the $15 special for the day of Battered Flat head fillets and chips, which is a complete meal. The reason our waitress would have told you that no changes were available is because in the past we have had our "special" $15 meal go from this to "change the chips for vegetables and also change one of the pieces of fish to scallops etc" It then no longer becomes the "special:. Our waitress should have offered you a free bowl of mash to accompany the meal so you still got what you wanted and you could havenot eaten the chips. I will speak to her and explain one small addition is not a problem. Again I apologise for your problems in the restaurant and do hope we see you again. Regards, Jean and staff

Stayed upstairs and even though the motel is on the Brooker Highway, we didn't hear the traffic due to the glass closing in the corridor. Nice large room with a great bed. Would certainly stay here again and recommend to others. We didn't feel that the rooms were dated at all and enjoyed the size of the room to spread out and enjoy the sofa and coffee table

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you very much for your review. It is very rewarding to hear that the renovations we have been carrying out (ongoing for some years now) are appreciated by our guests. We try to make the guest experience the best it can be and for that reason we look for improvements like the glassed in balcony and king sized beds, new carpets etc. I am really pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you again for reviewing it.

"Comfortable but average"

01/11/2015

First impression when you drive into the car park is 70's style motel, and the dated décor pretty much continues this theme in the walkways and rooms. The staff on reception are polite and extremely accommodating, even offering an upgrade. The walkways smell musty and I would say that is because of the older style of carpeting. Despite being next to a busy road, it was quiet in the room. The room had a couch, table and chairs, mini bar, tea and coffee. The bathroom was a nice size, however the paint was peeling off the bathroom ceiling. The towels were on the small side, but were soft, unfortunately they were the wrong colour against the rest of the décor. The shower had good water pressure. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were lumpy. With a little TLC and a good update this motel could move successfully into the current times, and attention to simple things like ensuring the pen in the room wasn't broken surely is up to good housekeeping. I would stay here again but not before a refurb.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your very informative review.Unfortunately I cannot locate which room you had to check the paint in the bathroom, however from the decription I feel it must be one of the three standard rooms we have left that have not yet been renovated. We have not had the oportunity to renovate these yet because of demand for our rooms, but they are priced accordingly and will be done by next year. You mentioned you would come back when renovation had taken place, please feel free to come anytime, we would very much welcome you to our king rooms, some renovated 4 years ago and more every year since, photo's available via the website. Unfortunately these do cost more than standard rooms as you realise renovation is a must but quite costly. Again thank you for all your comments good and not so good, we know what you are saying and these last rooms will be done to the standard of 95% of our other rooms. We are conscious that cost to the guest is a great factor when booking a room and for this reason, surprisingly enough, our standard rooms are nearly always the first to go and we rarely hear from the guest that they are not good value for money. Regards, Jean and staff

A wonderful place to rest the weary head after enjoying the sights and sounds of Hobart. Close to all the interesting things and easy taxi distance if that's needed. Hosts are remarkable welcoming and go out of their way to ensure your complete satisfaction. Breakfasts are truly gigantic and perfectly presented. Jean and the team are very special.

We found the motel by chance and walked in hoping for a room. We were greeted with warm enthusiasm and made to feel very welcome. We stayed two nights. The host was on his last few days of cover so we didn't meet regular management but we were most impressed with how we were made to feel. We dined in the restaurant for dinner and again for breakfast. Room was very clean and well appointed. Cannot fault and will stay again whenever we get back to Tassie.

Jean M, Manager at BEST WESTERN Balmoral Motor Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you f ound our relief manager to be good and proffessional, all I staff work very hard in our absense and we really appreciate that. He always does a wonderful job for us and thank you for reassuring us of that. I am sorry we did not meet but hopefully when back in Hobart another time we may see you then. Regards, Jean and staff

My husband & I stayed here last night, it was a last minute planned trip to Hobart so we booked wherever we could get in. From the moment I walked into the reception greeted by friendly staff I knew we were in for nice stay. Our room was clean & well equipped it was the simple things like having plenty of tissues, soap, fresh milk etc that really made it stand out. We had a lovely breakfast this morning in the restaurant which was very yummy. We will definitely stay here again
