3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We had two rooms throughout our stay, the first facing the road and the balcony door did not close properly. This made for a howling wind noise throughout the night and the road noise was very loud. We mentioned it to the front desk and we were relocated to another room at the back of the hotel. This was much... More

Always have a great stay here. Rooms are spacious, parking is easy and you can come and go from the carpark at your leisure. Room service dinner was delicious! Very handy location and easy walking to lots of food options and also to the centre of town.

Location is good, walking distance to the main town center. Room being put on a very limited efforts to maintain and clean up. Many individual hotels are much better on upkeeping the room unlike this hotel although it is a chained brand hotel. Please be prepared to forget about the word "service" while you are going to stay here but... More

Located just on the fringe of Hobart CBD Best Western is retro 80's style but up kept to 2016 standards. Cleanliness of rooms, bathroom, sheets and towels were comparable to any 5 star hotel if better.

Good location with small car park which you pay for. Room was a little tired but spacious and having a balcony was nice but being there during winter we never used it. It was a warm room which was great as it was winter. Staff were helpful and friendly and greeted you as you were arriving and leaving hotel. Gym... More

Great place in the city, very clean and good value for money. Décor very basic but bed comfortable. Little things let it down like chipped tiles and poor carpet repair. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would not recommend the restaurant as not great quality and choice and expensive.

Staff were outstanding - warm, friendly, welcoming, informative, senstive to individual needs - especially when dealing with traffic advice, directions to airport etc. Meals in Embers Restaurant consistently wonderful. Onsite parking a bonus - although having to pay extra for it seemed unnecessary. Room was outstanding in all respects. Especially impressed by restaurant staff, who accommodated a family dinner with... More

We booked online and arrived at the Best Western to a seamless check in, gorgeous room, great staff and facilities. We had a great view with some snow on the mountains. Nothing was too much trouble and staff were so friendly and attentive.

Dated rooms, 1970's bathrooms, dirty carpet, terrible coffee, extremely unfriendly restaurant staff, beds on wheels- wake up on the other side of the room, the only 2 positive thing is the location and close to Salamanca market and secondly the live entertainment on Friday nights was fantastic!

We just had a three day weekend here, and regret the choice. This was a romantic anniversary for us, and I should have done more research first instead of grabbing a deal - which wasn't even that cheap for a budget grade hotel. I called the review "Yawn" for two reasons - First, the hotel is a little tired, and... More

Dear beanbagdan, I am so sorry that you encountered some problems. We will definitely investigate those maintenance problems, particularly the air-con which should be whisper-silent as split systems in all rooms were installed just 2 years ago. Regards, Janine Livingston Manager More
