The hotel is ok but the restaurant was understaffed. We had to wait a long time for our table to be ready even though there were empty tables then had to wait over an hour for two pizzas. I have stayed here a few times and always its the same with the restaueant "we are understaffed"

The room was basic, yet had a modern tv and a balcony (thank you!) I am not a fan of heating in hotel rooms so was able to open the door for some fresh air while in the room. The bed was the most comfortable I have been in at a hotel for some time. The car parking onsite was... More

Have been staying at the hotel for years now and never had a bad experience. Always friendly staff, clean rooms and fantastic restaurant with some of the best wood fired pizza you will eat. Good facilities on site and within short distance to some great Hobart attractions and city Centre. Highly recommended and good value.

Two to three blocks from downtown and market. Staff fairly helpful. Once again fairly clean but nothing special. Our room was clean and quiet even though it faced the street. Underground parking available for a cost although a little tight.

Booked a night at the Best Western over the New Year period. The room was clean and tidy.. loved the balcony which was great for a beer. The Hotel is a short walk from the city centre and close to the markets including the Sunday Market and Salamanca Market. Worth a stay.....

Stayed in King size room for two nights. A little tired but pleasant and comfortable. Stayed for a second two days on return from Launceston. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this Hotel in kinda off-season early July. It is great value considering it is in the CBD and walking distance to Salamanca Markets/Place. The staff and the service were excellent. The rooms are descent.

We had booked two rooms for two nights and found the place adequate. The only problem was the fridge in our room was more of a heater and caused the milk and deli items to go off, some $100 worth.

We took a 3-night deal of $100/night for a double room including cooked breakfast. Great value. Located right on the edge of the CBD. Close to everywhere including Salamanca Place and Sandy Bay. Its also a good hotel for business travellers. My wife and I will definitely stay here again when next in Hobart.
