Disappointed in my room
Mould growing on the wall and curtain in shower that had been there for quite some time, didn't have a shower on the second day as it was so of putting
Water pressure poor and hot water wasn't very hot I didn't need to turn on cold water
It was very noisy as there was and outdoor area under my room and lots of live music and functions, not good when someone has spent all day with sick relative in the hospital and just wants to sleep
Breakfast was very basic
Maybe I just got a bad room

Room Tip: If you want a quiet night ask for a room away from the outdoor entertainment area

The Waratah provided a clean and comfortable base for our stay in Hobart. It was within walking distance of the waterfront and Salamanca Market. Staff were friendly, breakfast was great and the Sunday BBQ was fab! WIFI was available in the dining room but not in our room. Overall a good stay.

Friendly staff and a great location - you can easily walk into town and it is just 5 minutes' walk to the restaurants and bars on Elizabeth Street in North Hobart.
We had a double room with ensuite bathroom on the top floor- the bed was comfortable, with nice bedding, and the shower was nice and hot (the bathroom has heat lamps as well). The rooms are a bit old, but spacious and very clean - and quiet!.
There is free wifi and parking, a TV (didn't use it) and a fridge in the room, and tea and coffee available (in another room). Breakfast is included as well (coffee, tea, cereal - great muesli, and white toast with vegemite/jam/marmelade) - self serve.
The beer and wine are reasonably priced in the bar, and the calamari entree/appetizer was excellent - very tender!

At a recent stay- I was impressed with the food, friendly staff, cleanliness & value for money I got at The Waratah Hotel.
I had the most tender calamari sitting at the bar and couldn't believe my luck when I was there for the Sunday Regage in the Laneway. I will definitely be back for another gig and more of that calamari!

The description and pictures I saw when I booked weren't at all what it is like. The rooms are old. The bathroom is very small. The heater and warm water didn't work, nor the tv. I changed the room after one night and got a room on the upper floor. Much better and renovated.
