I usually have my doubts about staying in 'independent' hotels. I like my Accor, my InterContinentals, and I wasn't sure how this little Hotel-that-could would compare with the 'big boys'. The short answer: It excelled.
We had an apartment on the upper levels of the hotel, and with Woolworths LESS THAN A BLOCK AWAY we managed to get the family's food together for the day with the minimum of fuss (the service at Woolies, however, was another story - fix the escalator, people!).
My only criticism focuses on the ducted heating, which feeds into the living area of the apartment, but there was no duct in the bedroom, meaning our first night was spent feeling the brunt of the chilly Hobart nights. A quick chat with the front desk staff the next morning meant that we were given an abundance of blankets and even a floor heater for the bedroom - all with a smile, heartfelt apologies, and a general warm-and-fuzzy feeling. If you're a bit temperature-sensitive, best have a quick chat to the team before climbing into bed on your first night.
