Nice experience and the hotel is in the city with nice views towards the city. Room was just enough for 2 adults and 1 kid, could have been better size. I must point out that pillows were too high and will definitely not suit everyone. Overall the experience was nice

I really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were more than adequate for the price we paid and they were very clean. The free wifi was excellent also. The only downfall was that the food was quite pricey in the restaurant down stairs. $19 for continental breakfast (not including coffee) seems like a lot of money if you're only having... More

This is a really nice property, well central located (within walking distance to the attractions of Hobart), clean and with big rooms. The staff is very attentive, helpful. They also offer free wifi internet and help you to plan tours in and outside Hobart. I definitely recommend this place.

My partner and I booked this hotel as we were given a discount through the Qantas website. Best Western makes me think motels, but this is a great hotel. And recently refurbished. In a great location, we enjoyed free parking, free wifi and the bar has free canapés at happy hour. Every room has a balcony which is such a... More

Well located in the city, within walking distance of Salamanca Market. The room was clean and comfortable, although I found the pillows a bit bulky. Hotel parking is $10 a day but there is street parking, which is all day at the weekend. All in all a comfortable stay.

I have been using this establishment over the past 30 years and it has been consistently good. Spacious room, clean and well appointed. Handy parking underground. I liked the red carpet welcome mat at the entrance to the lifts! Staff attentive. Would definitely stay again. Central location with walking access to all Hobart's attractions.

We stayed here for two nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfy and the free wifi was great. Car park in the hotel was also easy to find. Overall, it was great experience staying in this hotel.

Poor quality bathroom facilities if you suffer any difficulty in mobility the shower was placed over a bath which was difficult to step into and out of if stepping up or balance was a problem. Advertisement of price of breakfast was easily misunderstood. Dont recommend this motel for elderly people.

We started off our 3 plus weeks of our hiking trip in Tasmania by staying at this Best Western. It was a good location to rest up to get ready for more adventure. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was good at both breakfast and dinner. Also had great "nibbles" at Happy Hour.
