A clean modern serviced hotel with good sized rooms, basic cooking facilities, views of Wrest Point Casino, friendly staff, free underneath parking. I stay here on business quite regularly. Hobart can be difficult and expensive in general and this hotel offers very reasonable rates at good quality. The staff are always super friendly and helpful I'll be back again and... More

Tasmania is well worth visiting - so much to see and do and all in a compact area unlike mainland Australia. The photos I saw of this place are a little misleading as they give the impression that your room has a view over the sea - that may be applicable to one or two apartments but certainly not the...

Very nice clean room with courteous, helpful staff. The only issues with this room was that we were at the front and heard a fair bit of main road noise and some light bleed through the 'slat' curtains at night. Decent curtains would have fixed both problems. That being said, the room did have a brilliant view over the river... More

Very good hotel staff were excellent. We'll placed for casino across the road which had excellent restaurants which incidentally were very reasonably priced. Enjoyed the experience and used the hotel as a great base for seeing the island. Would certainly use this hotel again if in Tasmania. We'll done to all the staff.

Pros - clean, modern interior (deceiving from it's humble external appearance!) - well stocked - friendly, helpful staff - great view as it is situated by the water - good heating and cooling system Cons - weak wifi, troublesome as you have to log on every time you wish to use the internet. Please improve!

After a warm welcome from Judy, we were very happy with our clean modern room. We had 2 Queen size beds. The room was well equipped with quality bed and bath linen. There was freshly ground local coffee (or chocolate) with plunger and free wifi, which worked well. Lovely hot showers. The only down side - Sandy Bay Rd is... More

I was attending a conference at the Wrest Casino & staying close by was great & this place exceeded my expectations. Room was clean & serviced daily & all my requests / questions were answered promptly with a smile & the onsite parking & close proximity to the city made getting around easy.

This hotel felt good from the start. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. Location is great as it is right across from Casino - but we were driving so it was also good for the ease of parking spaces in hotel driveway/courtyard. Plus it was just $10 to get to Salamance in a taxi, so well worth the cheaper... More
