The room was very nice and extremely clean. The process for arriving at night when the office was closed was simple and straight forward. The location is good, with a bus stop to Hobart city centre only a 2 minute walk away. Free wifi which was handy. I would happily stay again.

I was in Hobart overnight and wanted an inexpensive hotel with guaranteed parking. This was a great choice. My room was on the third floor - refurbished rooms with excellent heating, lots of warm bedding, and a view of snowy Mount Wellington and of the Derwent River/Wrestpoint Casino. I booked through the Qantas website after booking my flight and received... More

I only had two days in Tasmania so I chose a fair-priced option that was a little bit outside of Hobart CBD. The taxi had no problem finding it, as it is on the well-know thoroughfare of Sandy Bay Road. Check-in was in a little office that didn't look like a lobby past the parking lot. The desklady was really... More

For the money, this is my pick in Hobart. Rooms are being refurbished to a higher level of modernism and convenience, which makes them a reasonably high standard. Location is great, only 5 mins to city centre. Mini bar items very well priced, and service is extremely well honed. Quiet area, no road noise, however open air style of the... More

Great clean friendly place. We have used it as an alternative to the overpriced dated rooms at the Wrestpoint numerous times when we've had events and dinners to attend at casino and will continue to do so. It's just a short walk over road to casino.

Nice place to stay. Room was very clean and comfy. Renovations were being done but did not interfere with us. Views of Wrest Point Casino. Easy to find from the airport as we arrived in the dark. The receptionist was very helpful, gave very helpful advice on which way to go when leaving Hobart. Would definately reccommend this place to... More

A very clean and tidy (ours was a very small) room on the ground floor, very modern, 2 TV's. the only downside was the stairwell that was next to our room which encroached into some of our room space. A great location on the shorefront across from the casino.
