We popped in for a drink and a snack after 5pm on St Patricks Day so they were gearing up for a busy night. The guy at the bar warned us that had a function later so dining room not available for a long stay - but did it in a way that we felt welcome rather than discouraged from... More

I have reviewed the Waratah before and raved about the experience - in fact I think I said it was the best place in Hobart for a fancy pub meal. However, I feel I have to write another review as something has gone seriously awry. I can only assume that they have changed ownership to someone that doesn't know a... More

Three single bed room was comfortable enough but at $210 per night was grossly over priced in my opinion. I'd had a fall the day before I arrived resulting in a black eye and 10 stitches to the palm of my hand so I suppose to be fair, I looked like I'd been in a fight. A Friday evening on... More

Never stated at a hostel/pub before but needed to do it on the cheap this time of year, pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff too. Comfy beds, cheap drinks and a great stay even tho I was on my own most of the trip, still had lots of fun and would definitely stay there again if... More

I stayed at the Waratah Hotel between the 31st July and 9th August. Upon booking in I was advised that I was upgraded for my room, for which I didn't ask, , because of my length of stay. I thought this was absolutely fantastic, and the room itself was clean well looked after. My room was cleaned every day fresh... More

At first glance the room was clean. Pulled back the top sheet and found red stains. Can only assume they are blood stains. Bathroom at first glance is clean. Not impressed that I had to flush b4 I used the toilet. Went down to the pub to buy drinks. Yeah well they recommended that I walk around to the bottle... More

I stayed at the Waratah for a long weekend in July. I found the rooms comfortable and just what I needed for a great value price. The accommodation is simple but comfortable. The food in the pub downstairs was great and the staff very friendly. If you're looking for good value I would highly recommend it.
