We had a group dinner, and whilst the choice of menu was quite broad, the service and time to serve (over 20 meals) was a bit slow and disorganised. The meals area is quite neat, but go beyond to the service areas and the place shows it is a bit tired. Wines by the glass offered excellent good quality choices

The good: short walk down to Salamanca Market on Saturdays, and the pier with Mures and other food places. Very nice. Owen who met us on the Friday night (good Friday, at that) to let us check in was very friendly, went out of his way to make sure we got to our room. Room prices were quite affordable. The... More

I will start with the good things, location and breakfast included. Bad things: it wasn't clean, it is old, we had bed side tables were two chairs, toilet was dirty, we had laundry bags at the door for 24 hours, doors were scratched, "kitchen" is just a bunch of appliances in a corner (no basin), curtains didn't work properly, you...

Old furniture and simple facilities are OK, but my room was grubby; the carpet old and stained, dust and dirt in corners and under the bed. The TV remote, the clock and the bedside lamp were covered in old sticky marks and dust/fluff. The bathroom sink taps were lacking their tops and one dripped. There were broken tiles on the... More

The pub and bottle shop are on the first floor. I really enjoyed the steak I had there, one of the better ones I had during my three months around Australia. Plenty of parking. I'd would highly recommend it if your'e looking for an easy pub meal that actually tastes great.

Can't say i was overly impressed with this hotel. The pub bit downstairs is quite happening, so if you are a light sleeper i wouldn't recommend staying, but food was pretty decent though. The hotel itself has a very old motel feel to it, but the room was spacious and has parking if you are driving. Location wise was good,... More

We have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions. It is in a great location and has free parking. If your lucky enough to get room 10 there's a great harbour view. Reliable and good value with continental breakfast included.

Had NYE meal with friends. Menu was basic pub fare but a little overpriced, $23 for a schnitty? 3 items to choose from for desert was a bit poor. Service was quite good, although we were given soup spoons for desert and they had run out of seafood sauce for salmon. The live music was not great and died as... More

The Prince of Wales Hotel is in Battery Point, Hobart, which is a fantastic location - lovely old houses, beautiful views and close to the Saturday market. Rooms were very reasonably priced - breakfast (in the room) was included, and the hotel has a bar and restaurant facilities with very cheap meals. Highly recommended for a visit to Hobart.
