The hotel is in a great location near the waterfront and the Salamanca area. The rooms are clean but dated. The bed was comfortable and the young lady at reception was very nice. I would recommend this hotel as a well priced option if you're not after 5 star.

The room was tidy and clean and very comfortable and the kitchen area was lovely to get coffee etc in the morning. All the staff were friendly and helpful. It is so close to Salamanca markets and a 5 minute walk up the hill to the Hobart CBD for shopping too. We paid $8 parking overnight under the building or... More

The hotel is well located for all things on the waterfront and Salamanca area. Rooms are basic and clean. There is on street metered parking and there is a nearby covered carpet available during the evenings. A good base for central Hobart.

This has got to be one of the best locations for apartments in a city. A 2 minute walk to Salamanca markets and the waterfront is across the road. Apartment was spacious with 3 beds!! - we only needed two. Double glazing ensured there was no obvious noise from the pub across the road. Good little kitchen with all amenities.... More

We stayed at the Quest Waterfront for the Dark Mofo festival in June of 2014. This made for great access to the festival as the Salamanca Markets, the Winter Feast and the Mona Ferry are all located across the street. There is also a cool bar across the road.

This hotel is close to the waterfront area, Constitution and Victoria Docks and Salamanca Markets area. Good room with a bed that was a little soft for our liking. Only drawback to this hotel is if you book parking it is very difficult to manoeuvre in the car park if your car is a large family vehicle.

This accommodation is perfectly placed for the waterfront, city and Salamanca Place. You will have to go a long way to find friendlier and more helpful staff, they are fantastic. I would highly recommend staying here.

For a girls weekend we pre-booked a room for 4, but only 2 ended up being able to go. The room was lovely with a separate bedroom containing a queen size bed and two single beds just outside as part of the main area.

Short visit but very comfortable. Rooms were well maintained. Bathroom squeaky clean. Will definitely stay again. Cafe nearby "Harbour Lights Cafe" great for breakfast and an uplifting Coffee. Building is old as most other hotels in Hobart but again well looked after.
