“Perfect”
Reviewed June 6, 2007

The staff at Waterfront were so helpful. We arrived after the reception closed, but our key was left in a safe box,and i had been given instructions where to locate my room. The room was perfect. Beautiful view of Mt wellington, and the small bay with boats on was magical. The room was warm and well appointed. Clean towels were provided every day, and sheets would be changed if requested. Although a 5 minute drive into the centre of Hobart, it was easy to find, and was close to restraunts and shops.
All in all i was very happy with the accomodation and the price..$59 Australian per night. You can't beat that!

waterfront lodge hobart

There is nothing waterfront about this place. Its a misnomer and their photographs showing water from the lobby is somewhat deceiving. You would have to climb over a fence and into someone's private property to get to the water. Our room had a wonderful view of the parking lot. The hotel is not well located; it is not within walking distance to any restaurants, bars or the water. You have drive to Hobart unless you want to walk 45 minutes. This hotel also lacks the maintenance that one expects for the price charged. Our bathroom needed a good scrubbing. The hotel staff do not clean the rooms. We stayed 2 nights and on the second day we were surprised to see that our bed was not made, they only rearranged the towels. Our kitchenette was ill prepared, with mismatched plates and utensils. Forget about cooking up a meal. This hotel is not worth USA $100 a night- if they reduced their rates to the $50-80 range, I suppose I would be have been less disappointed.

Rooms were clean, staff more then friendly, helpful & accommodating, however we were a group of 2 adults with 4 children & we ended up in 2 rooms with no adjoining door, meaning we basically had to lock kids in the room at night & take the key to the room (just in case). Other than that.... no hassles, wonderful place to stay off the main road/away from noise, with a nice quiet waterview & only 20 minutes to the airport, about 5 minutes to the city & 25 mins to Cadburys.
No complaints.
