2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was given a room on the upper floor with a lovely view looking out over the harbour. The room was clean, inexpensively furnished with old furniture, with an odd shaped bathroom (when you turn the shower on, water sprays outside of the shower area, so you either have to get in and sprayed with cold water while adjusting temperature, or...

I've stayed here on many occasional and have yet to find a fault with it. Ok perhaps the odd door on top of the stairs is a bit awkward, but there is always the lift! All staff are particularly nice, and very well presented; especially the young ladies serving in the bar which I can not help but notice. Anyways,... More

First the good stuff - fabulous location, pleasant staff. We stayed three nights with a break for a trip to Mona and the location is great. Short walk to ferry to MONA, Salamanca markets etc. However, the room was clean but very shabby. elderly carpet, scratched furniture and the nice arrangement of towels in the bathroom hid a delaminating vanity...

Room is modest, although it was HUGE! Bar and restaurant are very nice. Right opposite the harbor cafes and all the action. Salamanca market is barely 200m away, along with some of the best restaurants you could hope to find. Only complaint is the noise from the nightclub a few doors up, i believe they are hoping to rectify that.... More

Had a few great beers here, good choice of drinks and not to pricey. Great location and friendly staff. The outside area is a fantastic place to sit and chill with a few mates. Will go there again next time im in the city.

great place to stay. Central. easy walk to food, Arthur Circle and most of the Hobart tourist spots. MONA ferry is :"over the road" . The girl who greeted us was great - imparting knowledge that helped us make the best of our visit. Good place to start the "Lonely Planet" Walking tour of Hobart from. We allowed three nights...

Stayed for 3 days in the room over the bar during mid week. Was quiet (we are used to Sydney). Great atmosphere and the room is very clean and neat. Loved it. Great breakfasts and appreciated that it was included in the cost. We will definitely be staying here again if in Hobart. Probably will ask for the same room... More

Stayed at Customs House early January 2014. Great location right across the road from the Hobart docks and waterfront. Walking distance to CBD, Salamanca, Battery Point and the docks. Includes a great breakfast, bar, restaurant & laundry also on the premises. The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the heritage of the building. Best of all - we parked... More

The location of this hotel is excellent as it is right by the waterfront (clue is in the title!) and the rooms are pleasant enough but a bit tired looking and basic. Excellent breakfast included with your stay though so this kind of made up for it. On the downside - there is a nightclub right across the road and... More
