5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had 6 nights here last week and were very happy with our experience. The room was clean and modern and bright and the bathroom new and had a great shower. The hotel is opposite a large intersection but there is little noise due to the window glazing and the hotel will provide free ear plugs if you aren't happy!!... More

When booking this hotel we wanted something reasonably priced that would be walking distance to the centre of Hobart, and suit our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 girls aged 9 and 11). We chose this hotel purely on the Trip Advisor reviews and the availability of the family room at a reasonable price. From the outside it does... More

Had a lovely time in Hobart and was very pleased with the hotel, you are a bit out of the centre but not far to walk to the harbour area. They had great dining options with beautiful views and a nice late night bar with piano player. Rooms had everything you needed and staff very helpful. Would recommend to stay... More

Stayed one night on our arrival in Hobart. Hotel surrounds very clean, friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Room was very clean, prices for mini bar were very reasonable, probably the cheapest we have seen in many years of travelling. Would highly recommend, even though it is on a main traffic thoroughfare it is very quiet.

We stayed four nights at the hotel and we're happy with our choice. The hotel is well located. Close to all attractions and the MONA ferry terminal. Rooms are clean, have a comfortable bed and functional bathrooms. Staff was ok, nothing special really. Parking was included which was great! Would come back.

Stayed 3 nights in a hotel room.on 6th floor, with lovely views over the fountain. The room was so quiet you wouldn't know you were on a motorway. The staff were incredibly friendly and the hotel has made some very considerate choices (on $10 holding deposit on the card, mini bar priced and shop prices, free WiFi!). We haven't eaten... More
