“Really lovely hotel ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Single traveller stayed for two nights. Hidden just off the Main Street and close to all the attractions - walking distance. Really impressive hotel. Rooms very high quality high end fittings and fixtures. Staff were great esp the guy at the breakfast very cheery and friendly. Reception were helpful and happy to store baggage on the last day. Free papers in restaurant. All necessary equipment in room including good quality hairdryer. Highly recommended next time I come to Hobart I will definitely be staying here.

I stayed here for a business trip & found the hotel to be an excellent place to stay. Located in the centre of Hobart, it was easy walking to the locations we needed to go.
The room itself was very comfortable with modern fittings. I had a balcony room which was lovely.
Breakfast at The Charcoal was very nice - a good variety of food for the full buffet.
Staff were very friendly. I'd definitely stay here again next time I'm in Hobart.

This hotel is great value and exceeded our expectations. Located in Collins Street in the centre of the town but within walking distance to most tourist attractions. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Our hotel room was quiet and spacious with modern décor and bathroom and provided every amenity.
Special mention to the hotel restaurant, Charcoal. Great atmosphere with open kitchen and wood fired pizza oven. Friendly, helpful staff and diverse menu showcasing Tassie produce and wines. Bruny Island oysters – yumm!!
Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Hobart.

Room Tip: Some (or all?) rooms recently renovated. Seemed to have one of these.

we had a large apartment, which was well equipped including a washing machine and dryer and even an iron and ironing board. The wifi was difficult to access, but the in-room internet connection was good. The Staff were very helpful.
It was an easy walk to the Salamanca market and town centre. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

This hotel is great value and lives up to expectations. The staff were extremely helpful when our flight was cancelled, our refund for a missed night was promptly repaid even when it was cancelled after the cutoff time. Reception staff seemed to be glad to be there which is saying something. Great place, will stay again.

The hotel is located in the centre of Hobart and within walking distance to Salamanca, dock and city centre. The 24 hour front desk was very helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable, but not spacious. Perhaps a toaster in the room would be good.
The entrance is difficult to locate and the car park entrance is difficult to find if driving. The entrance is located is up a side street and down a lane. Car parking is limited and on a “house full” conditions. This was not mentioned on our booking information. Our room was quiet.
The rooms have been updated but reasonably small. The bar fridge was not stocked with drinks and snacks and no complimentary biscuits. Breakfast is not included in accommodation (this is the case with RACV Club in Melbourne and Healesville).
As a word of general warning. Shops don’t open Friday nights and some on Saturday.

Room Tip: Ask for upper bay view.

This Hotel is well located for shopping and local attractions, such as Salamanca Markets.
However, the rooms are drab, dark and very small. I found this Hotel to be overpriced, ( I am not a RACV Member),with a Gym the size of a cupboard and a surreal lobby that needs to be brought in from the 60s.
I booked this hotel,based on reviews on trip advisor and was very disappointed.
On the plus side the staff were pleasant and very helpful.
Perhaps, one can get better deals and rooms by dealing directly with the Hotel and not a third party (as I did).
Also note that if you are renting a car in Tasmania you need to enquire about insurance cover. The agent informed me that Tasmanians drive uninsured. If you have an accident, it becomes very expensive.

Room Tip: I would book directly and chat the receptionist. Some rooms appear to minimal light.
