Stayed for two nights over Easter and the hotel was definitely overpriced and under loved. The staff were friendly and the bed was really comfortable but that's the end of the good review. We could hear everything that was going on the the adjoining rooms, the corridor and outside. We hardly slept on Saturday night due to being woken up... More

Booked into one of the larger Queen suites, room was ok, very basic so would not want to see what the basic rooms were like, ok for an overnight business trip but that would be about it, quite close to a nice indian restaurant

First time I've stayed here normally stay at other hotels in Hobart. It's ok for a night or two, very standard for a best western. Felt clean and gym on ground floor is ok, running machine, bike weights and a rowing machine. I'd stay here if it for a night or two, bit of a walk to Salamanca place, CBS... More

Not worth the price you pay for it: 1. TV (local channels) wasn't working and staff claimed it was a temporary issue, though I'm fairly sure it's a reception issue based on the hotel's location. Apparently it's a consolation that you still get Austar, but unless you like sport this is no good. 2. Bathroom ceiling was covered in mould.... More

Dear Anna M, Thanks for taking the time to review us. I am sorry you had some problems and we are addressing the source of these now. It is difficult for us to prevent misbehaviour on the part of inconsiderate guests but I am pleased our staff stopped the unpleasant noise as soon as they were informed. Our reception desk... More

Our twin share room was clean but just a little worn out. Our room looked out across Hobart cityscape and towards... More

We had a lovely king size room, but because the neighbours chose to smoke from their balcony, we had to close our door. Then when trying to turn the air-conditioner on, it didn't work. Upon inspection by staff, it wasn't connected. So off to another room. This room had only a queen size bed, which is ok. But when the... More

There has been an ownership change so they are in the process of upgrading, but with little inconvenience to guests. Rooms are nice, location is good and staff could not be nicer or more helpful. The bar and restaurant are well run with good service, although prices for food and drink everywhere are a shock to an American.
