We stayed here for three nights and found it was a great central point for everywhere we wanted to visit. The rooms were very basic but we were so busy we were never really in the room. Breakfast was included in the price, which was an added bonus. The food was excellent too! We had a hire car and found... More

I had dinner and breakfast here. For dinner I had the Atlantic salmon - perfectly cooked and delicious. For desert I had the espresso cream brûlée - one of the best I have had. Breakfast was okay not sensational - eggs florentine on toast. Coffee was a let down. Service was excellent - friendly, fast and efficient.

This hotel has a prime location situated on the waterfront. An older building with cosy rooms and clean. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Even carried our bags to our room. The food is excellent and wait staff attentive.

The receptionist was exceptionally helpful & her French language skills were perfect which was a bonus for our European friends. The rooms very modest but clean. We had front rooms overlooking the harbour which were very noisy due to the location of a popular bar in the adjoining building. The bar noise finished about 10:30pm so it didn't affect the... More

In Hobart for a week-end of R&R. The Customs House Hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance to Salamanca market and the docks and much of the town not much further. Just as the building is a product of a by-gone era so too are the guest rooms, unfortunately not in a good way. The room was... More

Fabulous little hotel full of history and character, rooms comfy & clean but a couple of annoying factors. Music from below bar was loud unto 2 am on Sunday night, lighting in the room was inadequate and Ill placed. However not too bad for the price per night. Breakfast was included and dinner choices and prices were reasonable. All in... More

While we didn't get a room with any lovely period features it was still perfectly clean, comfortable and spacious. We had asked for a room away from the bar to avoid any noise - we ended up a room at the back with no real views, but had no noise issues. The lift only goes up 2 levels though so... More

We were expecting pub food but we were very surprised when our meals arrived. Excellent food presenting well with efficient pleasant staff at a great venue. We'll worth a visit, half price oysters on tuesdays. Great!

Close to everything. Right on Salamaka markets. Great shopping saturday morning. Most stalls ship to you if visiting from interstate. Fabulous seafood on the wharf. Hop on, hop off is close. My second visit and will visit again when in Hobart.
