Our Annual AGM and Ausmas Dinner was once again held at this great family owned motel. As usual, wonderful Tasmanian fresh produce and great wine from the bar. Friendly warm service provided by the staff and owners. We all look forward to our next function there.

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.

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.

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

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.
