We stayed for 3 nights recently. It's an old standard pub with some accommodation upstairs. A bit noisy due to the late trading hours but the deliveries at 3:30 am are the most annoying. Woke us both up two mornings in a row. Our pillows were a bit dirty and had mildew on the cases. The manager quite happily found... More

Five of us chose to stay in a family room with bathroom ensuite here. Not expecting much we were pleasantly surprised with a very comfortable, spacious, airy and clean room. Despite being a Saturday night it was not noisy or particularly crowded. All staff we met were friendly and welcoming, from the cleaners to breakfast staff and in between. Price... More

Great location, it only takes a few minutes to walk to Salamanca market - be sure you visit Hobart on a Saturday! Staff is friendly and helpful and there's free wi-fi in the bar downstairs. The bar is also a restaurant; just don't eat pizza there. My room, number 8, was nice but had a drawback: the window glass in... More

I read a few reviews on here before deciding to go: it was pretty much as expected. Rates vary by the hour as my partner and I both checked availability on our phones within half an hour and she found the same room in the same hotel for $89 instead of $120. So it pays to book late and risk... More
