“Great value, beautiful room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a very spacious one bedroom apartment and were very impressed with the whole experience here. Check in was prompt and friendly, staff were very helpful. The apartment had a large living area with kitchen, dishwasher and laundry, a really big bathroom with a separate shower and lovely deep bath. Everything was fresh and really clean too. The king size bed was very comfy. We ate at Charcoal, the restaurant attached to the hotel and it was great too.
This hotel is great value especially if you are a RACV member. It is right in town across the road from the main shopping centres and only a few minutes walk to the Waterfront and Battery Point. We did not need a car and saw lots!

Absolutely loved our stay here for our honey moon. We had a Room on level 8 with a spa on the balcony, Our first thought when we entered our room was "wow". Huge comfortable bed, Fab deep bath and walk in rain shower heat lamps, spacious living area and awesome view. Scrumptiously clean throughout heaps of fluffy
towels. Spent lots of time in the balcony spa. We enjoyed being a few minute walk to
the city centre. Super quiet we even managed a mid day nap! Great promt room service. Very friendly helpful reception staff. Undercover parking. This hotel ticks all the boxes for a luxury stay. Will definitely be back. Well up there with some of Tasmanias best Hotels. We didn't want to leave!!

Booked through the Racv and was upgraded to an apartment for doing so! The apartment had 3 rooms, bathroom, bedroom and living/kitchenette. The bathroom was large with a full size bath, walk in shower, wash basin and ample bench space. Towels were a good size, clean and fluffy! Shower had plenty of hot water and was excellent.

Bedroom had a large queen bed, it was comfortable, a pillow menu was on offer. The room was of a good size, large wardrobe and plenty of space for our cases.

Living area had suitable chairs, a large screen TV and a kitchenette with tea/coffee making supplies, a microwave and some cooking utensils(we ate out every meal!)

I rate the hotel highly as the staff were excellent, the room met all our expectations as it was spotlessly clean and well equipped. For an inner city location it was quiet, very, very convenient to all the central attractions and the waterfront and the restaurants.

Great rooms, very clean. Our view wasn't the best, we could see only rooftops and a high rise parking lot. Great deal on in house movies.

I would not recommend the restaurant! The room services menu was a little disappointing also. We went to the restaurant thinking the menu would be different from the room service menu and found they were the same. My husband and I ordered a tapas lamb cutlet and a pizza to share, we asked the waitress if this would be enough to share, she said yes. When the food can out, there was only ONE lamb cutlet!! and the pizza was the size our 7 year old would eat to himself. After spending $40 on food only, we walked the streets to find somewhere else to eat.

Otherwise the hotel staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the hotel. Would advise eat somewhere else and don't get room service!!

My partner an I stayed here for two nights while visiting Hobart. The hotel is extremely central- walking distance to many restaurants along the harbour and the Salamanca Markets. Our room was fantastic. Very roomy- with a separate living area and kitchenette which was useful to have for a quick breakfast. We didn't try any of the food in the hotel restaurant but only due to an abundance of tiny cafes and restaurants dotted along the harbour. They also have a gym which had average facilities. The only fault I have with this hotel is that there is a charge of $15 per day for the carpark. Given it is hard to find parking on the street this would need to be an additional cost to keep in mind.

Initially this Hotel is hard to find and with the oneway streets in Hobart can be quite confusing! Our checkin was efficient and on entering the room, a 1 bedroom King Apartment, we were quite disappointed with the kitchen. Only a microwave and an electric frypan in a tiny kitchenette, no cooking utensils, so unable to self cater for our 4 night stay! Interestingly there is a dishwasher (drawer style), but one wonders why this is necessary, and clearly it had never been used, as it was not even set up correctly!! The centrality to restaurants was its redeeming feature and we had several very good meals out, within a couple of blocks of the Hotel. The tapas and pizzas at Charcoal are excellent, and prices were reasonable. Walking to Salamanca Market and the Constitution Docks area was easy and enjoyable. Would stay again and recommend to others!
