“You can do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Unfortunately my last minute booking style wasn't so successful during our time in Hobart as on the Friday night we stayed most hotels were full. We got a room just for Friday night at the Hotel on Collins. The hotel was well located and the room was modern and clean. The hotel was average however and i find it difficult to find anything to recommend it in particular. I didn't find it value for money and need to highlight that two king singles pushed together does not make a king bed, it makes for a bed with a big lump down the centre. It was clean and we slept well but for the money, you can do better.

Stayed one night. Room was a decent size with a king size bed. Wall mounted widescreen tv, plus all the usual tea, coffee, hanging space, iron etc. Very modern, new and well appointed. Bed was VERY comfortable, and a true king, not two singles zipped together as you get in some hotels Bathroom was very funky, again all new and well laid out. Had a room at the front of the hotel overlooking the hospital, was surprised at how quiet it was.
Reception staff were really friendly and helpful. Parking is located next door in the commercial car park, but very good rates and it is leterally less than 1 minutes to the hotel via an under cover walkway.
The restraunt/cafe located in the hotel serves some really excellent food and does great room service too.
Locatged less than a 5 minute walk to the centre of the CBD, and there is a Woolworths supermarket just around the corner. A great place to stay in the city if you don't want the noise of the CBD yet want to be close to everything

We stayed 2 nights here on our first visit to Hobart . The welcome at reception was very friendly and we were pleasantly surprised to find we had received a room upgrade . Rooms , while not spectacular are both comfortable and functional . Bed and pillows were very comfortable which is always a plus at any hotel. Location is ideal - just off Elizabeth street mall and 5 to 10 minutes walk to the Salamanca harbour front. While we did not eat at the hotel , the range of food available seemed quite decent . Good hotel .

Hotel Collins was great.
Our one bedroom apartment was quiet, super clean, modern and spacious.
Although there were no laundry facilities in our room the guest laundry was clean & well set-up and the coin-operated washers & dryers were efficient and worked brilliantly.
Free WI-FI was provided and it worked well.
Dave on reception was awesome; friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Although the hotel doesn't have parking you may be able to snag free overnight parking on the street or pay the reduced charge of $15 for hotel guests at the adjacent car park.
The only drawbacks I found were that the lounge, whilst comfy, was too small for two to spread out comfortably, and it would have been nice if there were a bath in this room-type.

I have stayed at the Collins several times for wok and find it a very comfortable hotel and convenient location. The rooms are clean and quiet - perhaps a bit basic in the smaller ones but the beds are comfortable.

The restaurant has a good range of food but room service could be improved as I have had several items forgotten. Staff were very apologetic and 'made good' rapidly which was fine.
Front of house staff are really helpful and there is parking directly outside if you are lucky or in the Market Street car park which is a stones' throw away.
I would stay here again.

We needed a place to stay close to the hospital, this is just across the road. I thought it would have been noisy being right in the CBD but no, it was so quiet.

All the staff were just so helpful and the room was just perfect. We had a King Room and I loved the bath. It was spotlessly clean and quality fittings used. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again.

This hotel is great for location as it is central to all the Hobart stuff that you need to do. Within walking distant for some great restaurants and bars and the market on a Saturday morning is not to be missed. The staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms well appointed with clean and comfortable facilities. The only drawback is that the hotel does not have parking, however there is a public multi next door with a discounted rate for residents.

Room Tip: Choose the highest floor for the view
