Booked this hotel on internet and received a great deal. The hotel is located in quite section of town and you need a car to get around. On arriving we were impressed with the look until you get to reception where realise this is an old rundown property. The room we were given was in the old section of building. It smelt like mould. The main bedroom upstairs had an old tester bed that was half colasped and no heating and window covering that took awhile to work out. The second bedroom had 2 single beds and broken window coverings. The pillows were discusting. The staff have attitude and when we asked to have a room change they made us wait hours. Room service, if you can get any is slow and breakfast in the dining area is poor quality. I am not hard to please but this hotel is a disgrace.

Just arrived home from 12 nights at Rydges Hobart and can’t say enough good things about this motel. Room was clean and well serviced daily. When we decided to stay in our room late, we where always left fresh towels at the door. The staff where very friendly, and the small bar was a nice place for a quite drink and a chat when arriving home after a busy day... The breakfast buffet was great, and the food from room service was 1st class. Distance from the CBD and waterfront was not a problem, there are 2 options for there bus during the day and taxi is $6. We walked to North Hobart most days and even walked in to town, took 20mins.
All in all a terrific stay and we will defiantly return.

The hotel is located a small distance from the main center of town. We had a car so it was still easy to get around. The buildings overlook a sports field so it gives a nice open feeling to the property.

We had reserved a standard room but were surprised to be upgraded to one of the cottages. It was definitely an old building and was split down the middle to make 2 cottages. We had an entry in the front and the back. Down a long hall was a family room, bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen. Very large place but definitely in need of a renovation. The kitchen had the bare essentials to cook and there is a grocery nearby. The room/cottage was huge but almost too big for 2 people. The nicest part of the place was the new jacuzzi tub. We were only there for 1 night so it was fine.

We had some trouble with the in-room movies but the staff did assist us.

On our next visit I would stay closer to Salamance Place - many more attractions within walking distance.

Arrived on a rainy afternoon to a first floor unit in the newer building. Great size with bedroom and lounge separated by kitchenette and shower room but cold, dingy and in need of a facelift. Mini bar basket contained out of date crisps, chocolate etc. Cutlery was dirty and there was mould in the fridge. Only heater was in the lounge so bedroom was very cold.

Complaint to Reception about the state of the unit was met with profuse apologies and an upgrade to an "Executive Suite" in the old building. Whole building smelt musty. Suite very roomy with a heater in both bedroom and lounge but still everything gave the impression of a badly needed refurbishment.

No problem with staff who were all great but nothing about this hotel would entice me to stay here next time.

We stayed there for three nights and were not pleasantly surprised. We stayed in the old section of the hotel. The room smelled old and musty. We had to open the windows to get some fresh air, despite of the autumn chill.
The curtains were ran down and they looked like they'd never been washed. The room had a big king size bed in the main room and a pull down bed in the living area. Only the living area had a heater. The main bedroom didn't have one. We had to leave the door to the bathroom open to get some of the heat from the small heater there. On top of this, the room didn't have any blankets, we had to ask reception to send some. My parents slept in the pull down bed and it smelled pretty bad, we had to ask them to change the pillows. The location is far from the city centre.
To wrap it up, I wouldn't stay there again and I don't recommend it either!
