Amazing location right on the waterfront. Across from MONA ferry and near to some nice restaurants and bars. Only 2 min walk to Salamanca Place. The room was clean and comfortable, great value for money and good service.

Had dinner here while visiting Hobart with my partner. Whilst the menu did not have a lot of choices the food was good. On the specials wine board, 2 of the wines were unavailable so not sure how long the specials have been special for

During a recent tour of New Zealand and Tasmania we stopped off in Hobart for a few days and stayed at the Customs House Hotel for our first two nights. Admittedly it was a music festival weekend and we were advised that a band would be playing in the downstairs bar - thank goodness we had a room at the...

During our recent holiday to Tasmania, this was the best of our hotel stays. We ended up booking an extra night as another place we had booked into was deplorable. Every interaction we had with the staff was positive. The breakfast is well made especially the dish with the wallaby sausages and potatoes. We would eat this for breakfast, lunch...

Had dinner and a few drinks at this inner city pub. Pleasant interior. Expensive menu with limited choice. Service not brilliant. Even though it's inner city the food needs to be better considering the price. My steak was nice but my wife's scallops were pretty mediocre.

Breakfasts were included so excellent value and they were really good and varied. Room was basic but fine. Staff were helpful. Nice place to sit with a beer or a glass of wine overlooking the harbour. Great location

After visiting a several places around Hobart we finally found a place that makes an Aperol Spritz just as good as Europe. Friendly, welcoming staff and outdoor seating to soak up the summer sun. Thoroughly recommended if your after a taste of Europe!!

I stayed here with my wife for one night on the 23rd December, 2016. It was our second one night stay and is my current preferred choice mainly due to its location. It is right near the wharf and the Salamanca markets a few mins walk. The room (entry level option) was quite small but clean and comfortable. No view...
