Customs House is located right on the waterfront. It is a pub downstairs so if you want peace and quiet let them know so you get a third floor room and at the back. No view though. The value for money was worth it. The room was small but clean. Bathe bed was comfy and good pillows. Breakfast came with... More

We stayed here in a queen room on a Saturday and a Sunday night. I had read in other reviews that a noise from the bar can be quite loud. Unfortunately we had a room directly over the bar and on Saturday night I could hear the crowds leaving until about 2am. My husband had earplugs in and didn't hear... More

The Customs House hotel looked inviting from the images online. It is right on the waterfront at Salamanca and built in Georgian times. Having never stayed in Hobart before I wasn't sure what to expect but was eager to find out what it was like. I soon discovered that Hobart is a friendly town and the staff at the Customs... More

I stayed at Customs House Hotel three nights for the June long weekend. I chose a room over the bar and was advised that it will be noisy on the weekends. It was only slightly noisy on the Saturday night and I knew exactly what I was booking, so I didn't have an issue with this at all. The music... More

We stayed here for three nights during a 10 day holiday in Tasmania. It was by far the best accomodation. We stayed in much more expensive hotels but customs was much better. It is very central, clean, comfortable bed, quiet and it came with a very high quality breakfast! Couldn't speak higher of this hotel....

Hotel is small and old and has a lovely feel about it. The breakfast is included and was excellent. We had a problem one day with our room not serviced and it was dealt with efficiently and professionally by the manager. Only 2 problems to note. It is a pub and as such can be noisy but we weren't bothered.... More

The Customs House Hotel was a great choice for us. It is reasonably priced small hotel with okay rooms. A stunning breakfast is included in the great hotel restaurant - best eggs benedict ever. At night the restaurant is always packed which indicates its quality. Emma at reception was so very helpful. If she didn't know immediately she reached the... More
