We spent three nights in a 2BR loft apartment. Our daughters (ages 8 and 10) loved the loft area and quickly claimed it as their own private space. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and laundry. The free inhouse movies were great for the kids, especially as we stayed during the June (winter) holidays and sometimes needed indoor amusements. The location is great, a short walk to the city, docks area and Salamanca. We found an offer through Wotif, but it was matched by calling the hotel direct and also included a family pass to the Aquatic Centre. Parking can be tight, but Reception will provide vouchers for street parking if no space is available in the hotel carpark. I have also stayed here when travelling to Hobart for work and it is always a pleasure to stay.

Thanks for your review, glad you and your family enjoyed your stay with us!

Just a quick note to clarify your comments regarding parking- if both or our on-site carparks are full we issue complimentary passes to the nearby Market Place Carpark (a 24-hr secure multi-storey car park- approx 200m from reception) but NOT street parking.

We hope to see you again soon for either business or pleasure!

I have just stayed at The Old Woolstore whilst attending a conference nearby for 3 days. I stayed in one of the Studio apartments for 4 nights. I can honestly say that this has been a truly relaxing and excellent experience and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

The apartment had everything I could have wished for to make my stay relaxing and enjoyable. The staff were all, without exception, friendly and helpful in every way. The studio apartment is really well equipped, including a washing machine and tumble drier, dishwasher, fantastic shower, quality toiletries and the most comfortable bed I've slept in for ages!

The apartment was serviced daily and all toiletries and towels replaced, the apartment cleaned, dishes done, and the best of all, my heater was put on for me so I returned from my conference to a cosy, warm apartment :-)

Even though the hotel and apartments are on a busy road, it was really quiet and I slept extremely well. No late night noise either, which was great

All of the staff seem to really care about their guests, which is not always the case in many larger hotels.

Room service was excellent, the restaurant food was great and there are staff on reception 24 hours.

The hotel and apartments are ideally situated near to Constitution Dock and the shops.

I was sorry to leave as I would dearly love to stay here again for a holiday or short break and would certainly choose The Old Woolstore again.

They have got it absolutely right - in all ways. So good to have so many friendly, smiling staff and such a lovely, well-appointed, clean and spacious apartment. Thank you to all for making my stay so memorable :-)

I chose this hotel to stay in when attending a nearby conference as it offered an apartment with kitchen at a far better price than the nearby hotels that offered small rooms.
Salamanca is an easy walk from the Woolstore.
Just before the conference started I enjoyed a special strolling theatre at the Cascades - Louisa,s walk which I found to be an entertaining and interesting way to learn about the Female Factory for prisoners in the 1800s.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 night stay in the Old Woolstore Apartments whilst in Hobart on business. The place is beautifully located - with an easy, flat walk to Constitution Dock and the Salamanca precinct. It's also very convenient to the CBD.

My one bedroom apartment had everything I could've asked for - comfy bed, well appointed kitchen, iron & ironing board, large TV, plentiful tea/coffee, dishwasher, etc etc. The furnishings were of better quality than you generally find at such places. There was a very small balcony off the loungeroom, but only big enough to stand on one at a time! But it's great to be able to open the sliding door and let some breeze through.

The staff were friendly and efficient, and very happy to advise on eateries and things to do. Check in/out were efficient and hassle free, and the housekeeping staff are pleasantly smiley and cheerful.

A car park, with overflow capacity, is an absolute bonus. There is a small business centre in the foyer. There is a bar and restaurant on the ground floor - but I didn't use them so can't comment.

This is a great place to stay - and with some good deals available through booking sites, it's a great choice for business or pleasure. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to Tripadvisor readers.

First time in Tasmania did not know what to expect. The location was perfect, the studio apartment was spacious very clean, warm, bright and not noisy. The housekeeping staff always greeted you with a cheery morning hello. The Woolstore seems to be mainly a conference venue, but that did not deter from our very pleasant stay. Parking was not a problem, we always managed to find a park. My only whine... trying to get the shower balanced so I did not freeze or scold took me ages and ages. If you want to stay in a comfortable, clean, central place without breaking the budget, it is perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed in the studio self contained apartments 6th floor a/c quiet.

Thanks for your review Trindozey, we are pleased you found our location to be perfect, staff friendly and rooms spacious and clean- this is what we pride ourselves!

I have sent you a message directly regarding the issue you experienced with the water temperature whilst showering. I believe the thermo-mixer (which maintains a consitent water temperature) for the room you stayed in may need adjusting or replacing, by providing the requested details you will assist us to prevent future guests from having a similar problem.

Many thanks for your time and we hope to see you again soon!

We have 2 small children and visit Hobart a few times a year. Have have been on the hunt for nice apartment style accommodation that is good value for money and we have found it! Admittedly we booked on wotif and paid around $130/night for a 1bedroom apartment - but would happily pay a bit more! The apartment was huge - full kitchen and laundry, 6 seat dinning room table and 2 bathrooms! We were pleasantly surprised!

The hotel was clean, overflow parking was available (we arrived on a late flight and the main hotel carpark was full), staff were very helpful and the buffet breakfast was excellent value for money at $19/person - kids free! And the historical background is a nice touch :-)

looking fwd to staying again on our next trip!
