Room was clean and neat. it was reasonably quiet and the food in this pub was awesome. It is a pub and that is what we expected. The location of this hotel was just so central to everything in Hobart. Salamanca market was a stones throw away, as was some of the historical parks and monuments that we wanted to... More

Customs House Hotel is a really good choice for Hobart. It is set very conveniently close to the harbour - next to the ferry to the MONA museum and the Salamanca market, and a good pick-up spot for all the day-tour options leaving from Hobart. The rooms are cosy, there is a laundry room for guest to use, free wifi,... More

We work in the accommodation industry and after a well earned break for a couple of weeks in Tasmania and arriving at Customs House, after seeing the beautiful harbour of Hobart, we were disappointed to find really second rate accommodation and write to worn you that you can get better value for your dollar in this city. The trip from... More

What a gem. top location with access to all the good stuff Hobart has to offer including Salamanca Markets and the ferry trip to MONA. Excellent value rooms with a restaurant quality breakfast included. The bar and restaurant staff are very friendly, helpful and professional and the manager great. Unfortunately the receptionist on a weekend shift was pretty offhand but... More

A bargain. Lovely big room on the third floor with a fabulous view. Room 22. I recommend it highly. Perfect location. We met friendly locals in the bar each night who were good company. The hotel staff were lovely. We are already planing a return visit.

After visiting Hobart so often not sure why I've never stayed here before. It's wonderful ambiance, price and opposite everything a tourist needs and even gives you free parking right on the waterfront. Room's really tastefully decorated and bathroom top notch too. Would recommend, but as it's in entertainment district, only if you use earplugs.
