Bedroom dingy and stained with a wet wall panel from the next door bathroom. No lampshade just a bare bulb. Dirty damaged kitchen unit, the bathroom once had a square basin, but had been refitted with a round one with the round one balanced in the square hole. What on earth are the management thinking about - all excuses about... More

We stayed there when visiting Hobart and its surroundings. One can drive to Mt Wellington and Port Arthur for day trips with time to spare. The hotel is also within walking distance to eateries, wine shops and grocery stores. Our room was spacious and the layout was very functional. Breakfast was simple but nice. There was also ample parking space.

I had no expectations of the hotel when booking, just needed to be in that location for business. The staff were so helpful prior to my arrival, ensuring that all my business needs and questions were dealt with. At checkin the customer service was excellent, my room was the biggest one available and had plenty of room to prepare for... More

Nice room, plenty of space, a well designed suite, and the view was nice if you overlook the North Hobart Oval in the foreground. The furnishings were however a little well loved. The property is about 25 years open and the furnishings look about that also. The staff were lovely, especialy those on front desk. The football could be a... More

I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms are very unsatisfactory and in need of major renovations. Our room had a bed that pulled out of the wall with a soft foam mattress and both reading lights broken. There were stains on the carpet, the bathroom had grout falling out and permanent marks on the mirror and tiles and... More
