We didn't book our room here, we just randomly enquired about a room and we're offered the executive suite for the same price as a normal room - mind you we were there when the place was quiet. The executive suite is large and well equipped with a separate kitchenette and bathroom, both of which are very sizeable rooms. The... More

As mentioned, the room's décor was a bit dated, but everything was clean and comfortable. The room was always warm due to a heater which seemed to be on permanently. The staff recommended a number of options for dinner, and we opted for the Marquis Hotel which was a very short walk away. We were a little dubious at first... More

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting Hobart. It was reasonably priced and quite spacious. The other reviews on here are correct - the decor is vintage but in good condition, and the smell reminded me of my nan's house. The bathroom was in good repair, and very clean, and the shower had a good spray and pressure.... More

We stayed here for two nights for the football in May. As most reviews have said it is a little bit away from the city centre, about a 10 minute walk down to the centre. The trip back up is a bit of a trek, but we caught a taxi for around $7.00 to save us the walk. The rooms... More

Stayed there for a night in January 2015. The hotel is a little bit away from the city centre but on a quiet street. It was good to see that the period features are nicely retained. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Given that the hotel is at an elevation, one gets a beautiful view as well. Overall, good value... More

We have stayed here before and it did fulfill our needs but the old comfortable beds have been replaced with new ones from readymix. The plumbing is a little noisy, I could tell that the guy above prostate was in good condition. Would I return? probably not I would rather pay a little more and get a bit more perhaps... More

Stayed here because the reviews on Trip Advisor were positive and my preferred options were all booked (due to the Arts festival that was on at the time). I will add another positive review to the list. The motel is a little bit out of the centre of Hobart but within walking distance (I did have a hire car and... More

Good location, walking distance to city and large rooms, however, our room smelt of cigarettes and the additional bed was broken. Also house across road had noisy/abusive men partying for 3 days straight.
