“Beautiful rooms and habour views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I stayed at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart last weekend with my partner and was very impressed with the venue and the staff. The staff were friendly and helpful - offering to take our bags and call us when our room was ready; check in wasn't until 3:00pm - which is very late for a hotel and pretty inconveniant for travellers but they ended up calling us about 1:30pm so that was okay. We got the deluxe rooms with a harbour view and they were massive and beautiful. The spa in the room as well as a shower was a nice bonus we didn't know about! We tried out the swimming pool, which was pleasant but their change rooms desperately need some touching up. None of the lockers had keys and the whole area felt a little like a gym change room from a high school. Other than that though, I'd definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room with a harbour view.

I wanted a reasonably priced comfortable hotel with a reasonably equipped gym to maintain my exercise regime. The Grand Chancellor delivered! The hotel is located conveniently between the main CBD and the foreshore. Also, for only $9 / night we were able to park the car in the hotel's underground carpark.

The location of the hotel was fantastic! Very easy walk to cafes, bars, market, park etc. We had a sea/harbour view room, and it was worth the little extra for the view every morning. The room was light, airy and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. Bathroom a tad small but very clean and good powerful over the bath shower! We were on the 15th floor, and the traffic noise was not that bad at all. Room was serviced and towels fresh and clean each day. Very comfortable lounge bar for that late evening glass of something before turning in. Staff very friendly and helpful right through the hotel. One small gripe, watch the internet charges, two hours $12.50, and you cant carry it over, so use it in one block or loose it! It didn't explain that in the notes when we logged on! Baring that a very good hotel, well up to international standards, but still had a warm, friendly and comfortable welcome feel to it. If we ever return to Hobart, this is were we will be staying. Highly recommend to others.

This place was fantastic! We had a harbour view room which was roomy and clean.
Our room was made up each day with fresh towels, soaps and beds were made. The only downfall was the noise of traffic at night (which wasn't really that bad).
We will be returning.

My husband and I recently took a photography/blog trip to Tasmania, and Hobart was our first stop, we looked at a few other options, but the Grand Chancellor seemed the best. It definitely lived up to our expectations!

Staying at the Grand Chancellor, from start to finish was a really pleasant experience.
We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff and to our surprise, received a free upgrade. We stayed in one of the newer, refurbished rooms right above the pool which was beautiful. The room was so spacious and comfortable. The only thing that I could fault was the bathtub/shower conversion which made for a very loud shower with pooled water sucking down the drain.

This hotel is right in the heart of Hobart and was a great base camp for us, it was so central to everything.

This review wouldn't be complete without giving credit to the delicious room service menu. We were spoiled for choice! The food was all fresh produce and very decent servings. If we ever return to Hobart, we'll definitely stay at the Grand Chancellor again!

I knew when I booked that we were going to have a good night. We usually spend a little less but I thought we'd splash out. Everything so far though has been spectacular. The staff were great when we checked in, the room huge and immaculate. And the best bit was the service overall. The bar manager downstairs knows his beers and was happy to talk about what's what and gave us samples and recommendations and everything. Far surpassed my expectations and would come here again in a heartbeat.

We spent a wonderful weekend in this hotel. We had a beautiful view of the harbour and to our delight a spa bath - which was not advertised as being In the room. The location is perfect, just a short walk fro great restaurants and the Salamanca Markets. Don't bother with the hotel Restaraunt though- this was a big disappointment, breakfast was very pricey and there are loads of other great options close by. Dinner was also very poor- our food came out cold after the orders had been mixed up.

Room Tip: Get the deluxe room- newly renovated, corner spa bath and fantastic views.
