“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

We were only in town for one night and I purchased a mystery hotel and got the Old Woolstore. The location is excellent, right near the docks and plenty of cool places to visit within walking distance. We got a free upgrade simply for turning up early which was appreciated. The room was clean, modern and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant in the hotel for dinner, and to say it was outstanding would not be overstating things. The food was truly delicious, the service was faultless - one of the better dining experiences I've had.

I would comfortably recommend the old woolstore without reservation.

We stayed in the Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in July as part of a four night mini-break in Tassie. The room was comfortable and pleasant, but is showing signs of wear and tear. The staff were nice and helpful when needed. The location is great and close to the docks, Salamanca Place and the restaurants we wanted to go to. Nice place to stay, but not a standout.

Stayed in these apartments for 2 nights and was impressed. The apartment was huge, beds very comfy, with a relatively central location & only a short walk to the waterfront, Salamanca Markets & local bars. Would definitely stay here again

The location was perfect! Close to the pier with many restaurants nearby, about 5-10 min walk. Also within walking distance (20 mins) to Salamanca market.

However, the apartment looked tired although it was very spacious and clean. There was no heater in the bathroom but it wasn't too cold then. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which are all in the old wing. There was free internet so a big plus. We were there on Easter Sunday and the Easter Bunny left us a little treat!

Reception were very friendly and helpful though.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments are in the old wing.

Hi Siew818,

We appreciate you taking the time to make a review on your stay with us in April. Our central location is certainly appreciated by many guests visiting for leisure or business.

We understand each guest has their own views on the property and overall it sounds like you had a lovely stay in one of our two-bedroom apartments. All our rooms offer heat pumps for the main area and guest rooms on the original side of the building are undergoing some updates which includes heating upgrades in the bathrooms.

Great to see you enjoyed the FREE internet available to all guests and you enjoyed the nice Easter treat.

Regards,
Sophie

Have stayed thereon a number of times with both holidays and work. It is in the perfect spot. A quick walk to the dock and then onto Salamanca Place. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet and the staff are very friendly. Have never had a complaint while staying at this establishment.
