We didn't stay at the accommodation here. We arrived late one evening and was after some alcoholic beverages. All bottle shops were closed : ( But they obliged us with some take always. Good friendly service. The lady bar staff even put in some plastic glasses. A nice greeting from Hobart. Cheers!

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!

The welcome stranger could have been a very good find indeed, it is in a great position, offers off street parking [if you have en-suite accommodation]. Rooms are dated but in quite a nice way with timber fittings and fresh paint, a modern tv and small fridge provided.Room no 6 was spacious enough and very clean. The bed comfortable and... More

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
