This is a great place to stay if you want inexpensive accommodation in a historic location. Rooms are above the hotel, but it is in a residential area so is quiet at night. Staff are friendly and very helpful - they will store luggage and call taxis. Salamanca Place is a short walk down Kelly Street and Kelly Steps -... More

Have stayed here three times now when visiting Hobart and really like the place. It IS a pub, so there are no frills, but the rooms are clean and warm, the views ( from even numbered rooms) are great and staff super-friendly, which counts for a lot. The location is also excellent, in pretty Battery Point, lots of cafés around,... More

Whilst this is an older style pub the accommodation was fine for the money paid. In fact it was the cheapest that we found in tasmania. It is basic but it has everything you need. Great location and helpful staff. Did read some reviews before staying. Think there are some wingers who expect the hilton on a budget. It is... More

This hotel is surprizingly close to Salamanca place and within walking distance to the Waterfront, where I had business this trip. I loved staying in the historic area and soaking in all the quaint places. My room was average, the bed very comfy and it was lovely having cereal breakfast things in the room, which meant that I could eat... More

We loved staying here as a family of 4 in the Suite. Queen plus bunk beds (squeaky) in separate room plus a lounge with comfy couches! Even a large balcony wit water views and Mt Wellington. Rooms neat and no problem with cleanliness. Basic hotel style accomodation. Ate at restaurant and all meals were excellent. There is noise from bands... More

We stayed here anticipating 3 star accommodation close to Salamanca Place. The location was first class but we would strongly advise against staying at the hotel. The accommodation was less than basic - clean beds was about it. There were untagged power boards with multiple appliances coming off, no air conditioning, noisy fridge but the tipping point that had us... More

This place is absolutely horrible! Very dusty rooms, moldy shower, blown light globes, and smelly doona covers! The ONLY thing good about this place is the location, I would rather pay a bit more for a comfortable stay. Also on the plus side the cleaning staff were very friendly and a simple breakfast was provided. This place was truly terrible,... More

My wife 'fell in love' with Battery Point and Salamanca, so we received a GREAT 2 night deal from hotel owner in their suite with views over Tasman Bridge and river, and never left the area. Hotel has quality meals for $10 and continental breeky included. Hotel is family owned and run and almost has that B&B feel about it.... More

After arriving to the hotel having been late at work we was greeted by the cleaner because there was no other way of reception for late check ins . Bit strange . We had already paid for the room two weeks in advance . So struggling up the stair and open the door we came to a tidy. Bedroom and... More

Just arrived at the Prince of Wales hotel for a night, this hotel is in the heart of Hobart's historic Battery Point, 3 minutes walking distance of Hobart's night life and Salamanca markets. Rooms are fine, and the bar is clean, restaurant looks like it can fit a few people. Love characteristic charm of this place, we have no problem... More
