Well priced hotel above the Watefront area in Hobart. Mini bar is the most reasonbly priced I have ever been too! Reccomend getting the free ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as the hotel is beside a busy roundabout. Friendly tasmanian service. The hotel breakfast is very reasonably priced as well. Fantastic stay!

Location is convenient to town. One nit to pick: Internet speed varies quite a a bit: from 0.4 to 4 Mbps. plenty for emails and such but not enough for... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. The room was to a high standard, we were very impressed. Our beds were made everyday and bathroom cleaned. Hotel has free wifi which the teenage son took advantage of (lol). The hotel is within walking distance to CBD, Dockside, restaurants and Salamanca markets. A good location to base yourself. The...

Found this hotel through Trip Advisor and asked travel agent about it, ex Tasmanian, she was in agreement and said well worth staying here. Glad we did, it was within walking distance of the main parts of the city, nicely appointed. Room was comfortable with a lovely huge shower. We were on the 1st floor, a few steps from the... More

This is the second time we've stayed here as visitors to Hobart and I'd return again. The hotel is well located, about 15 minutes walk to Salamanca and 5 minutes into the centre. Rooms are spacious, light and spic and span. The Breakfast buffet is reasonably priced, with good variety. The dinner menu is inexpensive, but not particularly exciting. Staff... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel, it was clean, the bed really comfortable, staff helpful and friendly, location pretty central, we were on the 4th floor and not near the lift (which would be noisy I reackon) so street noise wasn't a problem. Good value for money for a short city break.

We had a one night stay at this good motel. The room was clean & tidy. The king bed was good. A couple of down lights did not work and I could not log on to the free wifi. Breakfast was good value and nice food. The staff were friendly & helpful. We had three rooms and everybody was happy
