Good location, big room with tiny balcony, great staff made for an excellent long weekend's stay. Vert comfortable bed, spotlessly clean with the added advantage of a well supplied kitchenette. Used room service one night, the Bistro another. Good, well priced fare, excellent friendly service. The Baa Bar was very welcoming. Would recommend the Woolstore highly. Will stay again, next...

A test of a good hotel for me is if they can repeat a positive experience, so coming back to the old woolstore I was a bit worried they wouldn't live up to the hype from my first stay, but they did. Service was excellent, 1 bedroom apartment was well appointed, and I am impressed with how functional the layout... More

Was well positioned close to cafes, restaurants and pubs. The harbour is lovely and close by. The hotel is everythingyou need. The bar is a bit characterless. There are better breakfast places around if you can be bothered to get out in the cold. very tidy and neat

The Woolshed is a lovely hotel that comprises modern facilities with a hint of old world charm. Located right near the harbour, a short walk from Salamanca Markets and the many restaurants in Salamanca Square. A Hog's Breath restaurant is across the road and a little bottle shop next to that which stocked a wide range of (reasonably priced) wines.... More

The room was all it said it would be... we were able to walk to everywhere ( well almost ) and hire cars and public transport were very close by - airport transfers at the door. We arrived early and our room was ready!! The highlight was probably the restaurant... we decided to eat in and we were so glad... More

It was in a fairly quiet area but within walking distance to so many things, including great eating places. The staff were interested and nothing was too much trouble. When we ate here we were impressed with the food. Yes, we would return here!

Hobart is a lovely town and there is a lot to do for a weekend. When paying such a high price you expect a lot and unfortunately this place should be charging around 120 - 150 per night. We stayed here as I thought it would be amazing, it's not. We stayed on the top floor views out over the... More

We were only in town for one night and I purchased a mystery hotel and got the Old Woolstore. The location is excellent, right near the docks and plenty of cool places to visit within walking distance. We got a free upgrade simply for turning up early which was appreciated. The room was clean, modern and comfortable. We ate in... More

We stayed in the Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in July as part of a four night mini-break in Tassie. The room was comfortable and pleasant, but is showing signs of wear and tear.
