Unfortunately I booked this on line. I always read the reviews of places, but this time got distracted and didn't. Said it was within walking distance from town, leisurely stroll. I don't think so! It took us more than 30 minutes at quite a brisk pace to walk into town. The room itself was disgusting. The floors were filthy, and... More

This is a hotel we visited in March 2014.The curtain rail fell onto the bed. The pulldown bed we slept on for two nights was dirty and ripped. The manager was unavailable from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning when we departed. The drawers were dirty, the freezer compartment of the fridge was broken and there was an opened carton of...

We have stayed here several times. You can get some very good deals. We only paid 75$ with a free drink. for the standard room which for Hobart in this location is very good value. Only 5 minutes walk into teh Nth Hobart restaurant strip and ample parking. Check in can be slow on occasions but was ok this time.... More

Disappointed with room. Dated and bit grubby in places. Booked without a lot of research because it is a Ridges hotel. On a positive, staff were lovely and helpful. Breakfast in cafe was nice and atmosphere relaxed. Just needs refurbishment or name change away from Ridges.

Should have paid more notice to the reviews already written. The Room I had was dingy and dirty, the exhaust fan in the bathroom was encrusted with dirt and fluffy bits, I was to afraid to use the in house tea and coffee facilities as I was unsure of cleanliness of the equipment given the state of the cupboard that...

I have stayed here a number of times as it is booked by work. Checking in after hours is very tiresome, waiting at the bar while the only worker serves drinks and then eventually gets around to the line of people wanting to check in is very ordinary. Rooms are generally very large but very 'old school'. Often rooms are... More

I booked a room and got a suite - a big bedroom with a comfortable bed and a lovely sitting room with a great view through a panoramic window down to the CBD in the distance and even beyond. Excellent value. Old fashioned, but not noticeably shabby. Meals were good; service lacked style but was willing and quick. The problem... More

1981 called, they want their hotel back!! If it wasn't for the warm friendly staff I would have rated this hotel poor. The staff were exceptional, always smiling, friendly with a nothing is too much trouble attitude. The bed linens and towels were always fresh and clean and the bed itself was extremely comfortable for a good nights sleep. That's... More

High prices for outdated hotel. Service at front counter lack lustre. Room 30 years out of date. Mattress terrible and cleanliness poor. The whole place needs a facelift, repaint and general update on all it's infrastructure. Will not return.
