Very central location, walking distance to most places of interest in central Hobart. Excellent value for your money. It even has a small restaurant that serves breakfast and dinner ... reasonably priced. Very friendly staff.

Admired the brilliant set up of this hotel room. Mirrors and shelf at the appropriate places. Even the water tap for shower is place at the right place and not directly under the shower head so that we can test out the level of the water heater. The room is clean, spacious and convenient. Our room was facing the water... More

From the outside this hotel looks quite average but we couldn't have been more happy with it. We had room 77 on the top floor with views over the harbour down the Derwent river. We had a queen bed and 2 singles for our family of 4. The room was very comfortable and it even came with a heated toilet... More

Great place to stay, roomy with wifi and cheap mini bar and a proper hairdryer. Beds have quality linen and very comfortable. Rooms well maintained and clean and will defiantly return. Small criticism is why tvs were mounted low? And then a picture on the wall above was quite distracting...

Easy short walk to the dock. Doesn't look much from the outside but hits all the marks inside. The beds are comfortable and the room was large. Lots of little things, like a good range of toiletries. Pleasant, helpful staff and good views. Oh and the cheapest mini I've ever seen. This will be my first choice next time we... More

What a great location to get around Hobart, close enough to walk everywhere including the Tourist information booth. Staff were so friendly and helpful, including the cleaners! Definitely recommend this hotel to business and family travelers. Their corner 3 bed sleep with kitchenette was a gorgeous spot to watch the sun come up and go down!
