Stayed there 3 nights with large group and enjoyed the stay. Rooms & beds were quite comfortable, well equipped and staff were very professional & friendly. The only downside would be the loud pub opposite so ask for a room at the back if that's going to annoy you. Great location opposite waterfront, near ferries to MONA etc, and round... More

Stayed 2 nights in this property what a great location walking distance to everything. A few nice pubs and restaurants, (one pub can be a little noisy). Excellent staff. Downside is no cable TV and you have to PAY for wifi , at the room rate it's outrageous. Come on Waterfront it's the 21st century,yes when I complained we got... More

I usually stay at the Quest franchise for business in Victoria so I was expecting the decor to be relatively the same. While Quest Waterfront is in an excellent location I did find the room (especially the bathroom) lacking the standard that some other quest properties have. In saying that, it was really fine and nothing I wouldn't stay in... More

Close to the foreshore and the restaurant strip. On street metered parking (during office hours) only. Rooms are pretty small and could do with an update. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I thought it was a little pricey for what it was.

Nice apartment/hotel (or, ugh, 'aparthotel') at a decent price. The pros? Some of the nicest staff I've ever met, great location (across the road from the waterfront, around the corner from Salamanca square) and nice clean rooms with decent amenities. It's quiet most of the week, but the pub across the road is (inexplicably) packed on a Wednesday night and... More

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.
