Edgewater is not flash. It is basic, roomy, clean, well serviced, comfortable, quiet, and a decent laundry. It also has facilities in the rooms that allow guests to look after themselves if they don't want to go to the very friendly pub food restsurant. Don't whinge, it is reasonably priced for what it is. It is lovely to be so... More

The place was awesome. Great friendly staff that where only to happy to help ( Janet was great). Great food. Clean. great view of the Spirit of Tasmania as it went past. Could do with a paint job on the outside so it doesnt look so scary.

Rolling up I could help but think I had booked a motel that rents rooms by the hour, but with clean rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff and right next to the spirit of tasmania I was pleasantly surprised.

My wife freaked when she saw the place from the outside - we almost kept driving, even though we had already paid! The room was ok, but it is (IMHO) on the "wrong" side of the river - if we had stayed on the other side, we could have waklked around the city. Functional, but basic.

My husband and I have stayed here on the 2 lots of holidays that we have had travelling around Tassie. From the outside it looks average yet inside the rooms they are renovated with modern furnishings, very clean and comfortable rooms. They also have a lovely restaurant with a good choice of menu at good prices, and an onsite laundry... More

I loved staying here. The staff were fabulous and really warm. They went out if their way to make us feel welcome. The food was fantastic and the rooms were clean and comfortable. A real hidden gem! It doesn't look much when you arrive but when you go the accommodation the rooms were great. It's also close to the ferry... More

Upon arrival, there was a discrepancy about the price for the night; the resolution offered by the person behind the counter was rudeness. The room was poorly lit, as half the bulbs were not working. The room was so tiny that once two suitcases were brought into the room, one could not get to the tiny bathroom. An okay choice... More

I stayed here in a Terrace Room which was really quite nice and clean. I don't really have anything negative to say about the room itself but it is true that if people are making noise in the courtyard you will hear it quite clearly. This is only a problem if they stay up late though - chances are good... More

Doesn't look that good from the outside but the river room view was really nice. Very clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. Would stay here again and we recommend the Edgewater for anyone traveling on the spirit of tasmania as it docks within a stones throw of the hotel

We booked a Terrace King room. You would think that a Terrace King room comes with a … Terrace. Perhaps with a little table and a couple of chairs. Where you could sit and enjoy the air down by the river. But wait … no such thing. No terrace in a Terrace King room. Shame. Although they did swap us,... More
