“Standard 'Pub room' upstairs above bar - Affordable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Myself and my husband had a comfortable stay here, and would consider returning.

The first thing to note is that the accommodation is above the pub / restaurant / bar area, so you check-in at the bar beside the gaming room. You need to bring your luggage through the bar to go upstairs to your room, but the bar is a relatively quiet one, it's separate from their main public bar. When I saw the accommodation was upstairs, I'll admit I was nervous about noise being a problem, as my husband was in Hobart for a sports event and needed sleep, but we were both pleasantly surprised that it was relatively quiet.

We stayed four nights, including over the weekend, and weren't disturbed during our sleep once.

The room is a basic pub room, small toilet and shower room, main room had the vanity / basin in it, small fridge and tiny television. Bed was relatively comfortable so allowed a good nights sleep.

My only negative is that the housekeeping staff make it difficult to have a sleep-in. They seem happy in their job which is fantastic, but they talk and talk and talk for hours outside your room in the hallway. If you're up early each morning then this won't be a problem :-)

Had one evening meal in the restaurant. Garlic loaf is fantastic, but don't think that the $10 steak special will be like a normal steak special at a pub which is usually a big feed. It is served on a tiny plate and you literally get a tiny piece of rump with a handful of chips. That's it. I paid I think an additional $6 for it to be surf and turf, and got a whopping 3 prawns for my $6. The rest of the menu looked amazing, however was pretty expensive for dining at a pub. I could go to a waterfront dining establishment or Salamanca and pay less...so we did.

Value for money made this an ok place to stay.

I recently stayed at the Carlyle hotel and have to admit it was pretty good for the price and even included breakfast. The room was a decent size with it's own shower and toilet also so had a small tv and a mini fridge in the room. staff were good also were the cleaners. one other reason why I chose the Carlyle was for the location as it is located next door to the bus interchange and easy to get to the city or the outer suburbs.

We stayed in the self contained family unit when we were in Hobart for a wedding earlier this year.

The accomodation was perfect for us with our toddler, as it was fully self contained with two separate bedrooms, allowing our daughter to sleep happily. It also had a kitchen with all facilities so we were able to prepare meals comfortably. Access to the unit was easy and didn't require walking through the hotel.

Food at the hotel was excellent and well priced, and there was also a great enclosed play area for kids off the dining area.
