“Great experience”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Stayed 3 nights, great apartment hotel, impressed with the room which had a combined lounge/dining, separate laundry, spacious bathroom with shower, bath, toilet and vanity and an additional toilet with separate powder room/vanity. Breakfast was full buffet of very good quality.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room close to the main road or reception area as it can be a little noisy.

Felt like we were staying in an old institution or hospital. Not good. Very mediocre really a place for conferences not holiday makers. Was told it was in a good position but too far back from Constitution dock - boring and lacking in character despite the promises

I'm sorry you feel that way george1george. Whilst many of our reviewers don't share your sentiment, we are undergoing a refurbishment at present and I would be more than happy to discuss further with you should you have the inclination. I can be contacted directly at the hotel or via k.luck@oldwoolstore.com.au.

Our hotel is located one block back from the waterfront and just 300m from Hobart's mall. We are within easy walking distance of the Salamanca precinct, Hobart travel centre, Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, the Gasworks Cellar Door, Lark Distillery, Tasmanian Air Adventures, several ferry terminals including the MONA ferry, Hobart Cruises and a variety of restaurants, shops and galleries.

We stayed recently when in Hobart, nice large rooms, very clean & tidy, found the staff to be be polite and helpful, only a couple of minutes walk to the constitution dock area, plenty of restaurants close by. the deal that we got included a full buffet breakfast which we found to be fantastic with the busy schedule we had, we were able to simply sit down and get straight into a great selection of breakfast food cooked and continental style. Will stay again the next time we visit hobart,

We booked and spent a wonderful weekend in Hobart, staying at the Woolstore Apartments. Everything was wonderfully easy. The apartments are clean, well serviced and very comfortable, as well as being central, so that we could walk anywhere we wanted and not worry about transport. We were very happy with the service and ambience of the place. It might not be top of the range, but it was perfectly wonderful for what we wanted. the breakfasts are fantastic - no complaint whatsoever. They ever cater for gluten and dairy free - AWESOME!!!! Thank you Woolstore for a great weekend!

Room Tip: I imagine most rooms are equally good

My husband and I stayed on Saturday 25 May in room 913, which we only booked on the Wednesday as part of wotif's mystery deal (saved $23 from wotif's normal price).
We found the hotel staff friendly, our room spacious, clean and tidy with a sitting/loung room, kitchen, toilet with sink, large bathroom with washer/dryer in it and the bedroom with king size bed and another tv. Free parking was included.
The hotel is only one block from the waterfront and a 10 to 15 minute walk to Salamanca Place and the city centre.
For the price I don't think you could get a better hotel in the area.

Booked for a 3-night long weekend away with our 1 year old and specifically chose an apartment hotel so we had some space and could prepare food. The Old Woolstore provided a cot and the room had all the necessary amenities. The hotel staff were helpful at all times. It's not 5 star but it ticks all the boxes and for a family it's an excellent option.

My husband, 2yo daughter and I, stayed here for 3 nights.
Our 1 bedroom apartment was clean, spacious and well prepared for our stay.
The cleaners were especially attentive, even making our daughters cot, each day.
It was a little noisy, as we had a room near a busy street but this would not be the case if staying in rooms away from Macquarie St.
The staff were friendly and attentive; nothing to fault from our perspective.
The room was slightly dated but obvious changes had been made, to improve the facilities.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would return!
