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

I stay here in courtyard rooms regularly when visiting for business. Rooms aren't huge but suitable for 1 night stay - clean, tidy, Foxtel & have irons in each room, which for some reason, a lot of places in Tasmania don't have??? Room service only on Monday nights as restaurant is closed, however, meals are massive & I always struggle... More

A very nice upstairs room, which was clean and well appointed. Finally a proper shower i.e. not over a bath! Nice chatty lady who checked us in and another lovely lady on checkout. All in all very nice and pleasant, if a little out from town, and sadly the exterior does let it down somewhat - however we will quite... More

My husband and I stay just the one night, and I am glad it was only one night. I was not impressed at all. We stayed in the so-called "Executive Suit", for $175, that was meant to be a good deal. We first thought it was not too bad, the room was big, and the bed was a king size... More
