Older hotel located on the edge of town with a 5-10min walk to the centre (including the Salamanca Markets) so very central. Our room was very small with no a/c but it was clean and tidy. There is parking onsite but it is very limited otherwise you are forced onto monitored street parking. Breakfast was provided which was fresh but... More

The Welcome Stranger Hotel is very close to Salamanca Place and is a great price considering that. It is on the corner of two major streets but I didn't find traffic noise to be a problem. The staff were friendly. The room is small and the bathroom needed a serious cleanse. The bed was okay and the TV was okay.... More

First of all the location is good, just next to David's park, which is just next to Salamanca Place. However, the room is a bit old and dirty. We found a piece of cracker left from the last guests and it was always there until we checked out. The toilets and bathrooms have to be shared and this was something... More

We've been on the road for 14 days and this place is an oasis. Great food, cheap drinks, and awesome rooms - clean, quiet, and comfortable. Can sit in the lounge and watch the world go by. Brilliant. Food is fantastic at reasonable prices. Recommend this place to all anytime.

Came down for a boys weekend and stayed here. Great location right near everything. They do very good meals and just a typically great Aussie pub. Would recommend it for golf or footy trip. Easy share rooms and they told us they could handle a group of around 28.

Great place for a meal and a beverage, the manager, Tom, is a real pro at his job and makes everyone welcome. Accomodation available in clean pubstyle rooms. We wouldn't visit Hobart without spending time at the Stranger.

My sister and I stayed here for two nights. The absolute best part was the great location and free secure parking. The room was clean, a little old but good price and comfortable. Plus we didn't know it included a continental breakfast. But get in early, it was over before 9am. The staff were welcoming and we'd stay here again.
