Dear india1710, Thank you for the review. I am sorry that you did not like your bed. We have recently replaced all our beds with a top of the range brand and they have proved to be very, very popular. However, I am pleased that the rest of your stay proved to be good for you.

The room that we stayed in was spacious and clean. The Nespresso machine with complimentary capsules in the room was a major plus. The bed was so comfortable that it made one reluctant to get up. However, the hotel is located a little distance away from the city and at the top of a slope, which made it tiring to... More

Stayed here for three nights on recent trip to Tasmania. Good base in Hobart, Within walking distance of Salamanca, Elizabeth street, the pier. Shamrock pub is just next door, which was good access for $10 meals! Nothing fancy about the rooms, clean, functional. The free wifi was not very stable though.

Dear ChinPongLee, Good to hear we were good for your purposes. We recently upgraded our free WiFi in all rooms to top speed NBN so I am surprised to hear about problems there; we’ll test the system right now. Regards, Janine Livingston Manager More

Though the hotel was a little far from the city, everything was within walking distance and we managed pretty well when we got to know the area. We somehow got upgraded for free to a privileged room and it was spacious and had a Nespresso machine with complimentary capsules. The bed was very comfortable. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.... More

We were only in Hobart for one night, so we wanted somewhere central and had parking. We were pleased we chose the Best Western for our stay. For the price, we were very happy. Parking was included as well as breakfast in the rate. The hotel was centrally located and we walked quite a bit. We had dinner at Constitution... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in Mid-November. It was a good size room and I didn’t have any issues with noise either from the street or inside the hotel. Great free wi fi and I also found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. They also booked my return shuttle to the airport as I was having problems... More

Lovely staff. Room was very average. Terrible views, lighting in the hallway too bright, made sleeping difficult as light shone through the door. Not enough accessible power points, light bulbs blown in room, not enough bench space. However good location central to the mall, Constitution Dock, markets etc.
