“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. Fantastic location making it easy to walk to restaurants and tourist attractions around central hobart. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable and importantly, very clean. Staff are efficient and friendly. We had a king room and as there were three of us we required a roll out bed as well . The roll out bed was equally as comfortable as our king bed and the pillow menu was great. Free wifi was great as well. The only negative I have as with some other reviewers is that the bathroom lighting is definitely inadequate, however not a deal breaker for me. Will definitely stay here again. Great value for money.

We recently stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It is in a very good position, right near the shopping area of Hobart, and easy walking distance to the waterfront and Salamanca. The parking is very easy to get to and also secure.
We staying in a one bedroom apartment. The room was spacious, and a very comfortable bed. It was also very quiet, could not even hear traffic noise at all. The bathroom was very well appointed. We used the attached restaurant for breakfast, we had the buffet and it was pleasant, nothing to write home about but pleasant.
I would say that the tourism advice was not very helpful, however there are a number of brochures available in reception.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.

The staff are brilliant, particularly for travellers. We were well greeted and upon request, nothing was too difficult. We required info regarding local attractions. Advice was prompt and forthcoming, whether it was about what to do in a crammed three day break, or whether it was to dine.

We stayed in the Penthouse. It had spectacular views. Of note, other rooms had spas, but the Penthouse didn't. Also appears as though the heating in the room was a little strange. Up and down, seemingly at random.

A great, relatively inexpensive stay.

Stayed for 3 nights ( stay three, pay for two) with our RAC membership, plus 25% discount. Also parking included. You need to have checked in to access the car park, so park in Victoria Place if possible. We had an apartment and it was newly refurbished, good value for money. Very quiet and comfortable. Easy access to everything Hobart has to offer, would recommend.

Room Tip: Higher up, to take in the views of the mountain

Sailing weekend.

Spacious room but bath cracked in the new hotel ! with sealant applied- something about Tasmanian building quality. Told that changes will be made.

Someone set off fire alarm cooking in room - didn't use extractor fan!!!

Laundry in kitchen excellent.

Handy restaurant and friendly staff. Great movies

Worth trying as in room facilities are great

Room Tip: lower floors have limited city views

We booked for four nights, intending to travel further afield, but when our circumstances changed, we asked if we could stay another two nights. The first room we had was great - clean, quiet and better than we expected. The hotel had a three nights for the cost of two offer, but as we booked for only four originally, we didn't think we'd get the other two nights for the price of one. The staff couldn't have been more helpful though, organising our request and moving our luggage to the new room they gave us, as the first room was part of a two-room suite required for new guests.
Imagine our delight when we went to out new room - a penthouse suite far better even than our perfect first room!
Everything about this hotel was perfect - the staff, location, ease of parking - nothing could have made our stay more perfect.
Thanks to everyone involved, from front of house staff to cleaners, including the girl who asked if we wanted more tea and milk.
I've stayed at other RACV resorts - but none was even near this one in perfection.

Room Tip: You don't have to worry about which room you get - I'm sure they're all perfect.

Great service from Megan on front desk and others.

Stayed in a mid range room with kitchenette. Room was large and recently freshened up. Hotel was clean and tidy.

Hotel was within walking distance of cbd and Salamanca. Happy with our decision to stay at RACT.
