Stayed here for 1 night & 3 nights in September 2009 and was very satisified with what I got for a very decent price. The hotel is not much to look at from the outside but the location is pretty good - a short walk to the harbour or to the CBD. The rooms I had were of a very decent standard - clean, looked like they had been fairly recently refurbished, nice beds, TV, nice shower. Parking was free, just need to let the reception know so they give you a note to put on the dashboard. All the extras here seemed great value compared with most hotels, the minibar (which I never normally touch in hotels due to the cost) was reasonably priced, breakfast buffet (which I didn't actually get to try so can't comment on the quality) was only about $10, internet access was charged per MB instead of a flat rate. It was refreshing to go to a hotel and be able to make use of the extra services without feeling a bit ripped off! Will definitely stay there the next time I'm in Hobart.
