We picked this hotel because of its proximity to the spirit of Tasmania. I wasn't expecting much but loved our stay. The room was really nice & pleasant. We also enjoyed dinner in the bistro & the staff were really friendly. Great value for money.

We weren't expecting much, as the location was what we were after. We were pleasantly surprised, as for the price and the fact it was all good, it is worth a four. As for proximity to the Spirit of Tasmania ship - it's basically 100m away. The food in the restaurant was very good too. Recommended.

I stayed here due to the proximity to the Spirit of Tasmania terminal and based on reviews expected a decent hotel but boy was I wrong. I'll try to sum it up in point form; * This is a 1 star MOTEL not a 4 star hotel as advertised. * The room had an overwhelming stench of urine - we... More

Stayed here for one night before boarding the spirit of Tasmania, room smelt like urine, lights didn't work, room look nothing like the advertisement, bathroom stunk and staff were unhelpful when we brought the issue up. Disappointing !!

We stayed here due to early morning departure of ferry. It's not the classiest place or most appealing, but it was fine for us for one night. There is no way I would stay here for more than that. The room was spacious but lacked free wi-fi. That's a huge negative. 7.50 per hour is ridiculous & not worth it.... More

Many thanks for your response, we believe our location (next to Spirit of Tasmania) is a great benefit to our customers. As for free wi-fi.... its on the way, but in the meantime we have a PAYG service. Kind regards. More

Parking outside the door. We had a clean and comfortable room with King bed, although a bit hard and could do with a "topper" to improve comfort with a plush feel. Compact ensuite had a good shower and the Heatpump/Airconditioner great. The meals in the Restaurant were a great standard... the Calamari and Garlic Prawns excellent !

This hotel sits on the east Devonport side right near the bass strait ferry terminal. The rooms are small and clean. There is no mini bar to rip you off and no wifi. The Port restaurant seemed a class above the rest of the hotel complete with bottle shop and gaming room! The food was delicious but not open on... More

Stayed at this "hotel" during a recent business trip. This facility is extremely old and run down although the rooms have had a coat of paint, still terrible. No microwave or any type of cooking facility and trust me you won't want to go near the "Resturant" which is actually a rough wharfie pub as this is located in the... More

Many thanks for taking the time to explain your disappointment with the Edgewater and location. If you are looking for a better accommodation option for the future, Edgewater has a range of premium rooms on offer, otherwise there are a number of alternative venues (including 4 star) on the other side of the river.

We booked early and we received the best room with the best view of the entire establishment. Excellent location, close to the Ferry. The very best view from our accommodation window, allowed us to see the river, especially the slowly approaching Ferry (Spirt of Tasmania) coming through. Best advice given, if you book, is to arrive early... otherwise you'll rise... More

We have stayed at Edgewater on several occasions. We like the location to the airport and the ferry. The hotel is right on the water with great views. The Spirit of Tasmania sails right past and as we had a water view room we were able to watch it come and go. The service is great and our room was... More
