Stayed at Merre Be's overnight on business. Got the key taped to the front door and went to our warm room, the heater was turned on. Pleasant surprise and found everything we need in the room (tea, coffee, iron, etc). Strong water pressure in the shower, clean bathroom, the beds have electric blankets. Choice of restaurants along the same street... More

My family and I stayed here for dark mofo, which happened to be my birthday. We arrived in the evening, it was FREEZING, (middle of June) and although the owner knew we were coming she had not turned on any heating in the room, on looking we found one ancient panel heater to heat a twin room for 3 people....

It felt a bit like we were staying at our great Aunt's place. The room was ok but the furnishings were dated and we felt like we had no privacy. We were woken up at around 8am in the morning by a staff member ironing sheets just a couple of metres outside our door. We felt like we couldn't even... More

The room was nice and it would have been a pleasant trip if it wasn't for the place's complete disregard to the customers. Promised WiFi non existent, was working but password unknown. Contacted manager who said that a person attending the site would supply password. Person attending site said Manager had password. So no wifi and all it would have... More

While the position was great. Close to every thing in Sandy Bay. Our stay at Merre Be's was just ok. The owner had just cook her nights meal just before we arrived and our room smelt of her cooking all night. Couldn't get rid of the bad smell. The pictures on the web site make it look better than it... More

Recently I needed to book accommodation in a centrally located part of Hobart. I searched Sandy Bay and decided Merre Be's suited but after reading the reviews had second thoughts. However, when I related this to someone else they mentioned that their friends had stayed there and it was very good, so I took the chance and was pleasantly surprised.... More

What a delightful heritage accommodation! The owner was extremely helpful and friendly, allowing us to leave our baggage there whilst exploring around Salamanca Place on the day we were departing. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. We especially enjoyed the amazing spa bath. Affordable accommodation in Sandy Bay and we will stay there again if returning to... More

On closer examination we thought there was breakfast however were told she does not do this any more even though in lonely planet it said it had a full buffet breakfast . It had... More
