Stayed one night,we had been recommended the Welcome Stranger as the location was near the Salamanca markets. The room was basic but very clean. The room was a touch stuffy and could use an overhead fan and or a security/fly screen on the windows to allow in the night breeze. The hotel staff were friendly and went out of their... More

Just stayed here again for the fourth time over New Year and once again it was an enjoyable stay. The management and staff greet you warmly and whilst the rooms aren't 5 Star the staff certainly are. Having said that, the rooms are clean and comfortable and are gradually being renovated. The location is really handy,the hotel is close to... More

Rooms were clean staff were very friendly bed could be a queen size than a double in one room. Breakfast was ordinary was hoping for a hot breakfast given the choice. Was situated very close on where we had to go. Would stay again if we were in Hobart again

We used the family room. The beds were comfortable. It was clean. The bathroom needs to be re-done. The bath had been painted by hand and the paint was flaking off. The decor was dated. Lot's of traffic noise which could be negated with investment in window glazing. It is clear that the owners are investing as little money as... More

We stayed here at short notice due to needing to access St Helens Private hospital which is just around the corner. We arrived around 7pm and the bar staff were so friendly and welcoming. We immediately began to relax. We ordered a late dinner that was very cheap but reasonable food for the price. Easy-listening music and a few couples... More

Lovely place to rest our heads and have a great meal. Very well priced, we received an upgrade which made the room less expensive. Wonderful meal and the room was very clean and spacious. Tom was a great manager and a wonderful host. You cant go past this lovely hotel at such an amazing price. Thank you!
