I first stayed at this property roughly 4 years ago. Having just returned I can report that nothing has changed in that time. Yes its well located in Battery Point which is Hobart's most historic precinct and its walking distance to great restaurants, cafes and shops. However the apartments (we stayed in a 2 bedroom) are in need of an update. The lounge furniture is old and tacky and the beds most uncomfortable to sleep in. For this reason I would not stay there again. And they are charging top dollar too.

There are many apartment alternatives that I will try next time. Namely Somerset on the Pier and also a new development Zero Davey which looks great.

We stayed at the Salamanca Inn for 3 nights from 22 - 25 October 2005. We had stayed there before 3 years ago and had a very enjoyable stay.

Overall I still think this is a good hotel in a great location. We had a 2 bedroom apartment in the complex across the road from the main hotel which was very spacious with 2 bathrooms and a large open plan kitchen, dining and living area. However, I do have some negative comments:

1. We arrived at about 10.30pm on a Saturday night after travelling most of the day from Perth. The restaurant and bar had already closed and the receptionist could only recommend the Irish Murphys bar in Salamanca Place. In fact, that was a loud disco full of drunken teenagers. The only place to eat was a sandwich shop a couple of blocks away. It was only the next day that we found that we could have ordered room service, despite this not being brought to our attention.

2. Salamanca Place is now extremely noisy on Saturday nights with a young, drunken crowd. When we arrived at the entrance to the hotel at 10.30pm a youth was being arrested and handcuffed on the street by police. The noise outside continued until 5am. The next 2 nights were however quiet and peaceful.

It's still a great hotel but I think it is a bit overpriced, and if you are staying on a Saturday night I'd either make sure you have a room at the back of the complex or look elsewhere.

My partner and I have just returned from 3 days in Tasmania. We booked accomodation at a highly acclaimed bed & breakfast in Launceston which was comfortable. On our second night we stayed at Salamanca Inn "WOW". Over the last 12 mths we have stayed in Sydney, Apollo Bay, Gembrook, Daylsford, Wye River, yet Salamanca Inn was the most relaxing accomodation we have had the pleasure of staying in, it had everything that we needed and more and the price was fabulous. Thankyou to the staff and the lovely Tasmanian people.
