“Grand Chancellor Hotel Hobart”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Reasonably priced place to stay with a great staff at the front desk , great pool and lounge outdoor seating area. the bed was also comfy to sleep on, woke up with no back pains,

Excellent value for money The front desk staff were on top of it and very accommodating.

I requested a top floor and a few other things and the front desk staff was able to make it work

Thank you Linden !! Breakfast was great overall I was pleased with my stay I will definitely be visiting again. Thanks for an awesome stay!!! :)

It's over two years since I stayed at this property and there are noticeable improvements.

It has always had close to the the best location in Hobart with views over the water and nice sized rooms. My room looked as though it had been done up (certainly the bathroom had) and it was comfortable and clean.

The lobby bar is one of my favourites with views over the water and quite good seating.

Some of the service was a bit inconsistent but overall it was pretty reasonable. My one criticism was the soap holder in my shower (over the bath) had quite sharp edges and it was easy to knock it in the narrow space. A soap holder with round edges would be safer.

Worth a visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room.

This is a great hotel to visit while in Hobart. It has some amazing harbour views and is within walking distance to some great shops and places to eat. Very cute place indeed. I would recommended this hotel to family and friends if they ever travel to Hobart.

The location of this hotel is perfect as it's right in front of the harbour. There is nothing better than waking up and seeing the harbour. Everything was in walking distance (unless you were wanting to get to bellrive oval). Service was absolutely superb and very hard to fault them on anything. Although it was a business trip, I wouldn't have any hesitation in staying here for a personal holiday

The Grand Chancellor is not the most luxurious hotel in Hobart, but 25 years after it opened, it still can’t be beat for its location and service. We had an upgraded harbour view room and it was worth the extra dollars to be able to throw open the curtains and admire the changing panorama of Constitution Dock and the fabulous down the Derwent River to Storm Bay. Rooms are pleasant, and the bathrooms clean and bright, without either being particularly special. But the best thing this hotel has going for it, apart from the location, is the staff. We were greeted in a very warm fashion, swiftly checked in and given great advice and simple directions for the car park (which at $7 per night, self parking, with stairs right next to the check in desk, is a bargain). A pleasant surprise was the restaurant which is a cut above most hotel dining places. We were stuck here the first night by terrible weather and chose to eat indoors, and despite the Tasman restaurant being packed due to a function, we were seated and fed quickly and the fresh fish was very good. A small amount of traffic noise can be heard from the road below, but not enough to keep you awake. The one major drawback here is the lifts, which couldn’t cope with a convention, often left us stranded for 5-10 minutes, and when they arrived, were packed with others who had also been stranded. But the location across the road from the dock and a short walk from major restaurants and Salamanca Place, the cheap and convenient parking and the wonderful staff still, after 25 years, make this a great place for a short stay in Hobart.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Harbour View room - the higher the floor the better

We were very impressed with our room, service was great, Rick the concierge was so helpful with parking the car (even though we didn't need to use it as everything was so close by). Location of the hotel is perfect to see Hobart and in close proximity to everything you need

We won a one night stay here and did not know what to expect....we arrived and wow!!!!! The location was right on the waters edge at Victoria Dock. The views were fantastic from the front but we had a mountain view room on level 10 but looked out at buildings more than the mountain.This was a bit disappointing. The room was basic but had all you need. Staff were polite but not overly welcoming or friendly.
