After reading all the great reviews of this place I booked it with high hopes and was not dissapointed. The reception desk and staff were not overly helpful and the downstairs as well as the outside looked its 3 star rating.
The rooms, on the other hand, felt new, the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. We rented two of the family rooms and they were great, with a corner window used for the table seating. The mini-bar was great too! We didn't bother going out and buying our own water and sodas but instead used theirs since they were the same prices as we would have gotten at the supermarket.
It is walking distance to the harbor/pier and also the Salamanca Market. It is located on the first major round-about when you enter the city of Hobart, making it easy to locate for those who rented cars.
