“Lovely Appartments with everything you need.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

These Appartments are perfect for remaining self sufficient and comfortable while holidaying in Hobart. They are lovely easy to find and in a great location we will stay here again when next in Hobart.

We loved our two nights at the old wools store apartments. So clean, roomy and in a great location for us to walk to Salamanca market place and restaurants. We travelled with another couple and they where equally impressed with there room. Bed was supper comfortable. Although we where above the gym and saw it in use we never heard a noise. We where there over a long weekend and it was busy, car park was full, but we truly only ever saw a few people, and besides a couple of children playing in the lifts, we could have been there alone..Staff supper friendly too. Have Recommended to family and friends..

Stayed for 3 nights over Easter in a self contained apartment. We booked it as a mystery room on last minute and loved it. Great location - 900m from Salamanca. Free parking, fitness centre and access to the aquatic centre. The staff were lovely and very knowledgable. The room was very clean and big. Even had an Easter egg left for us at the door on Easter Sunday. Will stay here again and recommend it to anyone

We stayed with two other couples for the first two nights of our Tassie road trip.The rooms were great, particularly those with views towards the harbour.The proximity to harbour, restaurant precinct and the markets was important to our group and this hotel certainly met that brief.
If you are after ambience and romance ,probably go elsewhere but we got clean rooms which were well equipped and friendly service. Buffet breakfast was good.
I imagine if you were staying to be close to the hospital this hotel would be perfect.
We did hear a few sirens overnight, but nothing to really worry about. As three of us are nurses, maybe we heard them when others didn't :)

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view ( I believe there is less hospital/siren noise on that side too)

The location of the hotel was very close to the MONA ferry and Salamaca. Which was a massive plus that we didn't have to drive and we could leave the car at the hotel that had free parking.
Staff were friendly. Room was clean. But bed was not very comfortable.

We're pleased you enjoyed the location, friendly staff, clean room and free parking!

Apologies that you didn't find the bed very comfortable. Our mattresses tend to be on the firmer side as this seems to be the more common preference, however we do have pillow-toppers for our mattresses to make softer and also bed board for guests preferring a very firm base. On future stays please don't hesitate to contact reception (24 hours a day) so we can assist.

Thanks!

This hotel was fine but that's all there is to say. Room were pretty standard with horrible fluorescent lighting. Beds only made up with one pillow per person and blankets bobbled and tired (no duvets). It was in a good location but for $140 per night without breakfast I think it was overpriced.

Thank you for your feeedback Grace D.

Whilst we make beds up with one (soft/plump) pillow per person and cushions, additional (firmer/flatter) pillows are located in the wardrobe of each room. We have modern coverlets on our beds as can be seen in the more recent images of our rooms on Trip Advisor and also on our own website- blankets are underneath these and offer additional warmth.

The average nightly rate for a hotel in Tasmania (including regional areas) for the period Dec 12 to Feb 13 was $162.61 according to the Tasmanian Hospitality Association. Taking that into consideration, $140 for a four star hotel in the state's capital seems very reasonable to us. We have various room types and a range of packages available (some including breakfast) which helps us to cater for the budgets and requirements of most guests.
