This is hard to fault for the price. Our room was reasonably clean, freshly painted and spacious with new carpet. Nothing flash but we'd stay here again. Well located just a four minute walk from the centre of town and set back off the main road which is far from busy. The Queen River flows behind the motel in lovely... More

Good basic clean accommodation with a little stream running out the back. Double or family rooms. Value for money - they have electric blankets. The continental breakfast delivered to the room is quite expensive though.

Very comfortable room, clean and quiet. Extra bonus that they where doing their takeaway menu. When we booked was told that they were not cooking but they recommend any alternative venue. Glad they cooked the food was great. Owners very friendly and helpful regarding the sites, venues and locations in the town. Great nights stay.

The location of this motel is perfect; only 300 metres from the centre of Queenstown so it makes for easy walking to and fro. The two bedroom room, with capacious separate bathroom was comfortable and fitted out with everything we needed. The view from the picture window was wonderful: a running clear water rivulet amidst lush green trees and flowering... More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights. The room was warm and inviting and the beds were really comfortable. The kitchenette was perfect. We enjoyed a drink in the lounge and I was delighted to be served by my lovely ex student Cheynne. This motel represents amazing value for money and we will definitely be back.

Clean and quiet. Lots of little extras in the room. Pleasant 5 minutes walk to the main street of Queenstown. Free parking. Paying wifi (although it was fairly cheap). There's a restaurant on location that serves pizza among other things, but I didn't try it.

Initially, we had chosen West Coaster Motel for its location (roughly between Strahan and Cradle Mountain) and price ($300 for 3 nights). When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to see a kitchenette of decent size, large bathroom and very clean and tidy sleeping area. As travellers, a kitchenette was very welcome since we could make our own breakfast quickly... More

Just stayed the night before we took our trip the following day on the wilderness rail. Room was comfortable and clean. Bed comfortable. Restaurant was nice but disappointed the night we arrived we were informed the meat truck had not delivered so the only other options were pretty much deep fried foods or pizza. Otherwise couldn't fault.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The West Coaster Motel, situated in Queenstown on Tasmania's West Coast, is a 60 room, recently purchased, family run property and a perfect base to come back to after exploring the rich history of this unique part of Tasmania. 5 minutes walk to the ABT Wilderness Train Station, the Galley museum and the centre of town, you will enjoy the newly upgraded rooms from the modern Superior rooms with ipod docking clocks, to the warm Deluxe ground floor rooms, the convenient kitchenettes and the spacious 2 Bedroom Suite complete with king bed. All rooms have new linen and bedding, flat screen TV and DVD players, Mini bars & Room Service, Tea & Coffee, hairdryers. Queenstown has also had a complete overhaul of the water system and now delivers clean, clear water to all its residents and visitors alike (we have purchased white linen to prove this!). Enjoy a beer or wine in front of the fire in our Lounge/Bar then settle in to either the buffet dinner or select from the a la carte menu for a delicious home cooked, affordable meal. Book your train or Gordon River cruise direct with us and see what else our region has to offer from our helpful staff and brochure stand. We welcome you to the West Coaster and hope you have a pleasant stay with us. ... more   less
