Couldn’t believe you could access the historic site here and walk in!

So useful!!

Audrey was amazing.

Fantastic Location

Older motel but well kept in an excellent location, rooms were large clean and comfortable with everything provided.

Bar and restaurant on site were excellent and much appreciated at the end of a long day (thanks to Tassie Roads).

Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The staff were lovely and accommodating. We had booked elsewhere but moved here after the first night because the other motel was so poor.

Great food at the restaurant, comfortable, clean and a great spot.

Late arrival in Port Arthur

We were frantically trying to find a place to stay as we had just come off Maria Island and Heading to 3 capes walk. I found it on and there was a room. I booked at 5.30pm and we arrived at 7.30ish. We hadn’t eaten. We found Audrey in the Restaurant serving and she quickly came and sorted us out and offered to make us dinner even though the kitchen was closed - so we could eat. The food was yummy and the local wine was excellent. We took it all up to our room and had a very comfortable night! Thanks everyone we were very grateful! We will be back on our next trip to the 3 Capes Walk.

Comfortable stay in Port Arthur

We booked this after a last minute change of plans left us with nowhere to stay for the night and this was the only available place in Port Arthur, but we were pleasantly surprised with how comfortable and nice the place was! Our room was spacious and clean, the on site restaurant was a big plus and we had a delicious dinner and dessert there, and there are great views from the restaurant overlooking the historic site. Really good value for money.

Port Arthur's Finest

Nestled on the Tasman Peninsula, overlapping the Port Arthur Historic Site, the Port Arthur Motor Inn is the "jewel in the crown" of accommodation venues in Port Arthur.

For whatever reason for wanting to go to Port Arthur, be it in transit during a drive around the State, just a quiet get away, or maybe a business trip, it does not matter. The Port Arthur Motor Inn has it all for you.

Managed by a very courteous, friendly and extremely capable lady Audrey, you will find that all your needs will be met during your stay. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well maintained. There is an excellent Dining Room with a huge selection of dishes available and very well prepared and delicious, and there are comfortable lounges if you wish to avail yourself of a very inviting open fire. There is a small bar on site.

Sit outside and take in the spectacular view of the Port Arthur Historic Site in your very front yard! Who needs WiFi?

Great Value!

We took one of the deals on offer at the Port Arthur Motor Inn, including accommodation, a two course dinner at the restaurant, breakfast, a two day pass to Port Arthur and the Ghost Tour. It was a great deal - everything you want in one price, and economical at that.

Our room was lovely, overlooking the ruins from our picture window and verandah.

Audrey, the jack of all trades, behind the bar and at reception, was lovely. She made sure everything went well.

On reflection, we spent so much time looking around Port Arthur (and our ticket included the introductory walking tour and the harbour cruise) that we could have stayed an extra night.

Heartily recommended.

Perfect location for exploring

This is an older motel style property. Because of this, it is in the best location for overlooking the Historic Site. I have never seen so many diners taking photos from a restaurant! Great meal with a beautiful view. Rooms are quite adequate with comfy bed and good shower. Very friendly, helpful staff.

Great value and location

The Port Arthur Motor Inn was a wonderful place to stay following our Three Capes Walk. Clean, comfortable and a great location. The historic site can be seen from the hotel. It was lovely and quiet, and the hotel staff were very helpful.

Fantastic location, clean room, friendly service and all the amenities you could want. The hotel is conveniently located on the historic site and your room key opens a gate which lets you into the direction which was very convenient for the ghost tour. On site laundry, restaurant and bar with plenty of parking makes it very handy.
