There's nothing special about this hotel but it is in a great location. It is just a short walk to the Salamanca area and to the Waterfront. There are numerous pubs and cafés nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful. If you don't have a car and need accommodation in the most central location then I would recommend this hotel.

best location for a Hobart holiday, right on the waterfront, short walk to city. Quality bars and restaurants on your door step. Our room was clean and recently updated. We were given a room upgrade and complimentary wine for our anniversary. Staff are all lovely and helpful, highly recommended, would stay here again.

We stayed in a standard double room. It was perfect for what we wanted. The room was spotless. Modern. A central harbour position. All the main areas of Hobart were within walking distance. The staff were extremely helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

we stayed in a studio apartment. we obviously paid for the location as there was nothing about this place to warrant the amount of money we paid for the 3 nights. No parking we had to feed the parking meters out the front. No fresh air as the small window did not open. We had to use the airconditioner for... More

We stayed in Hobart for 3 nights before returning to Sydney. We found the location of the apartment ideal for what we wanted. We arrived on a Saturday so we were right close by to the famous Salamanca market. On the waterfront area there were also many bars and first class restaurants. It was also close to the town and...

Situated in Hobart's Waterfront precinct, the apartment caters for a family of 5 with 2 bedrooms. Unfortunately one of the three single beds is in the main room, with a queen-sized bed, kitchen facilities and dining table to seat 6. Plenty of room for a family. The bathroom could do with a better, more thorough clean & a freshen up,... More

Firstly, the front desk staff. They were efficient, helpful and friendly, although the same woman always seems to be there. They helped out with parking suggestions, directions to a range of places and reminders about the parking rangers. I had the long room with the single window which I did not find claustrophobic, just a little odd. The decor was... More

We chose Quest Waterfront because of location and were not dissapointed. I did my research and did not expect waterfront views but rather a hotel that was close to the waterfront, Salamanca place and markets, the Mona ferry, visitor information centre, Maritime museum, cafes, restaurants and the docks. The room was very clean, well set out and tastefully decorated. The... More

Very close to harbour front with a view of the MONA ferry wharf and walking distance to bars, restaurants and Salamanca shops. Would be perfect on a Saturday for the famous Salamca markets. Clean and comfortable room, friendly staff.
