I am in Hobart on a 3-day break by myself, and am really happy with this hotel. My room is modern, spacious and has a little balcony which gets the morning sun. Breakfast is included, and is very good. The restaurant is very good for dinner too - with a nice selection of wine by the glass. This hotel is... More

The rooms are very well maintained and are in excellent condition. It is like you have stepped back in time and staying in a glorious hotel. It is right across the road from the waterfront so you can just imagine people stepping off the sailing ships and coming into the customs house hotel for an ale and a good place... More

We stayed at Customs House Hotel for a week and found it ideal for our holiday. It's in short walking distance of the various docks of the waterfront and Salamanca Markets, museums, the information centre and many tourist attractions. The Red Bus stop is nearby. It's also close to a car rental company if you want to hire a car... More

I read a couple of mediocre reviews online, re: noise from below/bar. I didn't find that at all, and I was on 1st floor. Room was very nice, and far better than the price would suggest. Nice bathroom, freshly painted rooms, view of parliament house. Great location, near the water. (Lots of 'fishy' Pokemon there too). FREE room Wi-fi (which... More

I had dinner here recently in a business trip with my colleague. We chose the scallop special where you get a seafood chowder and a main for around $35 and a beer thrown in. Now normally they skimp in the seafood in these deals but my scallop linguine was very nice - Laiden with fresh and well cooked scallops, with... More

The room itself was okay, but how a hotel can offer accommodation when it has a night club running till all hours. Loud music to 2am, fights in the street as patrons leave. If this noise level and behaviour was outside of the hotel, the management would be expected to call the police. As it was their profit, no calls.... More

I've been travelling to Hobart for 12 years and Customs House is my favourite place to stay. It is beautifully located, with everything I want an easy walk away - CBD, Salamanca, the docks. The included breakfasts are generous and varied, with a view to Princess Wharf from the dining room. I've stayed in a variety of rooms over the... More

Stayed here before and after our tour of Northwest Tasmania. Excellent location and service, though keep in mind that the buildings are old and hallways have multi-levels. Staff were very accommodating about early breakfasts so we could get an early start for tours. Excellent restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
