The provisions here were just what we wanted. Comfortable clean beds, regular daily cleaning and towel replacement, wi-fi access and TV. If you happen to speak to reception or management, or have a SatNav getting here is no problem. Neither is anything else for that matter. Sure the place is old, but our room was well maintained. Would recommend if... More

Do not stay at this place. We were given one of the un-renovated rooms, pictures of which which don't seem to have made it on to the website!!!!!! The room was grotty, stains on the furnishings, benches and in the cupboards. The shower was filthy and no amount of carpet deodoriser could ever hide the mouldy smell which pervaded the... More

Thank you for your comments, It always disappointing to receive a review that I would consider not related to this property, however not knowing the guest I would like to say that I do not think that you are review the correct property. We are always looking at improvements take on board all reviews. More

A blast back to the 70's at todays prices. Still in original condition with scratchy old towels, a plastic bowl to wash your dishes and no house keeping. I dont mind staying in hotels with only the basics, but I would like to pay accordingly. No where to plug in your bedside lamp but thank god the bed was clean.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the City View. We do understand that our advertised out of the 60s, and up to date whilst keeping true to the era. Having said that we do have housekeeping service and do not understand why you would have had a problem. We keep our rate well and truly lower than the... More

room wasnt very clean plus the bathroom looked like it just had new towels put in and that was it ,very out dated and strange - staff very rude and charge you before you even arrive so you dont get the chance to pay cash. there are so many more places closer to the city to stay.

Room was ok, and easy to get key. Take care with instructions on how to get there - you will need them! We didnt stay long, just overnight and out again first thing in the morning..............................................

Have just checked in to my room. Reception was unattended but they anticipated me arriving early and so had my key in an envelope in a safe out the front. One phone call and I had my key. Excellent service. Great view outside my window of Hobart. The room is comfortable and clean, albeit a little dated (especially the bathroom),... More

About 5km out of city, tricky to find. Double bed, phone, large TV, full complement of plates etc, microwave. Clean tidy and quiet. Reasonable price. Good heater (a must in Tasmania), matching furniture, carpet OK. Short hop to the shops which is biggest complex in Hobart

We stayed here for ten nights to be close to Hobart, without actually being in Hobart. It was an ok room, and what we expected for the price. But the bathroom was shithouse. Water somehow got all over the floor under the sink, there was no fan in bathroom which meant steam and mildew and condesation on the floor and... More

Charged me for a room I didn't use even though I called the day before to cancel. Apparently that wasn't "24 hours notice". What is wrong with you people? I would never book again now and would not advise anyone else to do so regardless of the quality of the hotel room. Poor customer service which should not happen in... More
