The hotel is conveniently located and meters away from Salamanca market. The room was ok with enough space though a bit old. went out for shopping and came back to the room and noted one bed was not done and towels still where we left them. seems that the room was not made at all. Food at the pub was... More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights. The absolute best part was the great location and free secure parking. The room was clean, a little old but good price and comfortable. Plus we didn't know it included a continental breakfast. But get in early, it was over before 9am. The staff were welcoming and we'd stay here again.

My family and friends were hungry and decided to pop into the Welcome Stranger Hotel. We all had a counter meal. Rump steak & veggies, steak with chips and salad and pizza. The meals were scrumptious and each serving was large. The price was quite reasonable too.

The welcome stranger is a pub accommodation which is in an excellent location. Short stroll to the shops or to salamanca / waterfront zone. admittedly the decor is a little dated but at less than 80$ we had a comfortable bed, small tv and reasonable bathroom. there is off street parking. Would return if the prices stay low.

Nice and cheap, with brekky as well. The staff extremely helpful and courteous. We stayed here for two nights and would've stayed for more only they were booked out. We booked up the rd, but came back here at night for their wood fire pizzas... Beautiful.. Recommend to everyone.

I stayed here for one night, en route to Bruny Island. I was a tad worried that, as a 60-something single female traveller, the "pub ënvironment mightn't work. I needn't have worried. I received a really friendly welcome and immediately felt very comfortable. The room was reasonably basic, but very clean, bright, and all you need it to be. The... More

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

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
