Location - tick. Check-in - half-tick (despite knowing there was a lot of parties due to check in there was only one person on duty at 3pm and wasting time on idle chat with each check-in partywhen there was a line of 4 parties waiting to check-in) The lift - half-tick (comes to a jarring stop each time) Clean sheets...

We got free wifi so that was handy. Code was given at reception. Rooms: We booked a standard room. Very roomy. Comfy bed - felt like memory type foam.... More

Just fabulous, on 7th floor, views spectacular. Clean rooms, ample parking. Huge tv. And the mini bar prices, cheapest I've ever seen...so reasonable. Was worried about noise as some other reviews mentioned this but being so high up couldn't hear a thing. Very modern, clean room well appointed.

We stayed 3 nights in a top floor superior room. I would recommend this place to stay in Hobart close to the docks (500m) and cbd. Good breakfast at very reasonable price. Our room was quite spacious. This is no luxury hotel but it is clean functional with helpful staff. Everything worked. After we learned the way to drive down... More

Our last night in Hobart before an early morning flight the following morning. Room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Hubby had twisted his ankle quite badly that afternoon and a request for ice was not a problem and quickly provided, as was room service so he could keep his food up. Food was tasty and really well priced. The staff... More
