“A very enjoyable stay.”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Recently I needed to book accommodation in a centrally located part of Hobart. I searched Sandy Bay and decided Merre Be's suited but after reading the reviews had second thoughts. However, when I related this to someone else they mentioned that their friends had stayed there and it was very good, so I took the chance and was pleasantly surprised.
I found it to be more than suitable. It was spotless, friendly, comfortable and situated in a perfect location. It certainly was value for money and I certainly would use them again.

What a delightful heritage accommodation! The owner was extremely helpful and friendly, allowing us to leave our baggage there whilst exploring around Salamanca Place on the day we were departing. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. We especially enjoyed the amazing spa bath. Affordable accommodation in Sandy Bay and we will stay there again if returning to Hobart.

Room Tip: Room 1 is delightful, bright and private with gorgeous spa.

We wanted a place close to restaurants and this did meet the criteria. It appeared nice and bed was comfortable and was close to all amenities. On closer examination we thought there was breakfast however were told she does not do this any more even though in lonely planet it said it had a full buffet breakfast . It had dirty carpets and one of the breakfast plates was still greasy. Washing up not good like rest of place. The bathroom had mould in the shower and needed cleaning like rest of place. We were concerned about all the double adapters connecting the TV,Heater,fridge etc. the TV video player he sticky tape around double adapter. I am sure this would not pass regulations. The existing oil heater was slow to start and we checked the fan heater and it looked like it would catch fire if we used it. She did replace this which was appreciated.
Overall this was in poor condition and really needs a Reno.
I would stay away. One night was enough. We found B&B s in tasmania excellent and better than a lot of first class hotels however this was one of a kind.

Lets start with he positive: the position. As regard bed and breakfast, let me say, there is a bed.

The room and bathroom where dirty (hairs everywhere, i coulf find other costumers bath objects). Need total rifurbishment.There is absolutely no breakfast whats or ever (ridiculous!).
Forget about a warm welcoming smile and friendly service. We had problems with another of her accoommodations,(mise poo everywhere on the kitchen and plates) she said we were to fossy! We had to eat somewhere else and she wouldnt compensate for this.
The best way to describe is thinking of a student bed site, lots of extention cords and adaptors, old furnitures.
I dont understand how she can be in Lonely planet, 3 stars rating. This is the worse place i have been in Australia for the money value. Worse 40$.
Need inspection.

Room Tip: Look somewhere else, Choose another place!!!!!!

What a lovely home close to sandy bay, casino, food shopping. And walk to city shops. We did not have breakfast but the home comes with off street parking, toaster, jug, plates, cutlery cups, fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board great spa, and linen and towels. We only stayed 1 night but found everything to our needs. one thing pillows could have been a bit better quality.

We ended up cancelling our reservation after being spoken to rudely on the phone when clarifying details of payment and recommending improved clarity when booking through the website. I try to go directly to locations for bookings instead of through websites to help out the businesses but in this case I regreted the decision and have booked at our regular hotel in the city that has an idea of how to speak to customers.

We suffered through 2 nights at this so called B&B and thank god it was no longer. The bed was so hard, the doona was paper thin, the one and only extra blanket had stains on it, the heater was an old oil heater and not warm enough for the room, the carpet was filthy, the arm chair was so tatty and freyed. There was a very noisy fridge in the room. We hardly had any sleep at all and suffered with sore backs for a few days. We were very cold. Luckily the bed had an electric blanket though. For breakfast we had to go down to the shops. We would not recommend this B&B to anyone it would ruin your holiday.

Room Tip: No tip just stay somewhere else
