Business needs meant I needed a room in Hobart at last minute. My regular accommodation was fully booked and there were a couple of rooms available at the Hobart Tower Motel which is actually located in adjacent suburb of New Town. Interesting old motel dating from the fifties and housed in an historic house with attached units. Reception was okay-... More

Room was smelling musky needed constant venting. Smoking near our room made the smell come into the window. Room was not very clean the carpet needs cleaning and the bathroom needs cleaning, the cutlery was only wiped and had food left on them. We did get every day clean towels, shampoo and soap. The linen had black hair all over... More

We booked a room for my friend's parents who were travelling from China for the first time, via a booking website. Booking was confirmed. Some time after we were contacted by the booking website that the hotel had cancelled the booking - as the father's name was apparently listed by the hotel owner as being a female PRO...

This is budget accommodation, but satisfactory for our needs, which was a place to sleep and have a shower. Small room, beds OK. No extras such as tissues or biscuits. Handy to the city. We would probably stay elsewhere if there was other accommodation available for a reasonable price.

I've stayed here 4 times in the past 20 years and seen a lot of changes. This is (and has always been) a lower end of the market accommodation in Hobart. On this occasion, Hobart was 'booked out' and my usual choice of accommodation was long gone. I booked at 'the Tower' as an only choice. Current operators are very... More

After a long flight delay due to cancellation of scheduled flight in early morning, arrived Hobart around 1 pm. It was really frustration to check-in to a room not well prepared. It was very unusual situation. However when our dissatisfaction was expressed to hotel management they were very receptive and immediately arrange a another room with upgrade. Our initial impression... More

This is cheap and clean accommodation located about 5 minutes drive from the CBD. The rooms are spacious. The staff are friendly and willing to assist. It is a nice walk to the CBD from here as it is downhill.

You get what you pay for, no frills, wouldn't want to stay long term but did the job. Nice staff though and helpful. Is in a good location, fairly central, but can be a bit too noisy with the traffic noise.
