Reviewed February 28, 2014

Stayed three nights during start of recent first trip to Tasmania. Great location with spacious apartment accommodation. Nice kitchen and lounge with two comfortable Sofas and a small dining table. Little utility room wish washer and drier and second toilet accessible from kitchen. WiFi bit slow was only downside to an otherwise very enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Hobart.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a Tassie trip. Everything was within walking distance for us but we don't mind a bit if a stroll. All the action down on the waterfront is close and the food places are right there also. Once the car was parked it was only used once to get to the top of MtWellington for the great view. Breakfast was fantastic each morning and worth the money. I'd stay here again no worries.

Hi James C,
Thank you for taking the time to make a review. Glad you found the property central during your visit. Our hotel is a block away from the waterfront and is ideal for guests do walk to the docks, although we do not offer water views our location is ideal for guests wishing to be close to both the water and town.

Glad you could take full advantage of our Free Parking with your vehicle and only used this once while staying to visit Mount Wellington, good to hear you had some time to explore the Hobart surrounds!

Thanks for the comments on breakfast for those reading we offer a Full Buffet Breakfast for $19.50 and Continental for $14.

Cheers,
Sophie

I really enjoyed my stay at the Old Woolstore. I was 34 weeks pregnant during my stay, and the staff were helpful and friendly. I asked for extra pillows and they were in my room. The room was comfortable, clean and had all the things I needed for a 4 day stay. The hotel itself is a really nice former warehouse and there are some old photos and memorabilia in the hallways. Its a good location, close to the waterfront, restaurants and shops. I would stay there again. I can't wait to return to Tasmania and see more than Hobart.

Room Tip: I liked staying in the old section of the hotel as it had more character, but it was on the corner o...

Aussie_Wanderer_1 Thanks for taking the time to post your review.
It is so nice to hear our staff were able to assist with your needs whilst you were staying with us.

Great to hear you found the room was comfortable for your few days in Hobart and lovely to see you mentioning the history of The Old Woolstore. i am pleased you enjoyed our central location and hope you had some time to explore Hobart whilst visiting. Look forward to seeing you again if you travel back to Tasmania soon.

In regards to the room tips we are a centrally located hotel in the Hobart CBD which provides guest the chance to see the city by foot. We are a block back from the Hobart waterfront and provide guests with comfort and ease of access to central Hobart.

Cheers,
Sophie

Great apartment - very spacious and clean - roll away bed in living room waiting for us - great central location and value for money as we booked on a wotif mystery deal - would go back again as it is an ideal location and very comfortable - having a separate bedroom was also great for privacy

The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel is a very modern and comfortable accommodation place, but maintains that rustic feel and charm being located in the original building and having displays of the old machinery and wool etc... Lovely and spacious apartment size, with friendly and helpful staff, and all needs and requirements are covered...whether it is a business centre, or exercise or helpful advice...

The Old Woolstore fit our needs perfectly. Value priced because there is no water view. But don't let the low price mislead you. This is a very high quality hotel, and it is only a 5 minute walk to the harbor and 10 minutes walk to Salamanca. It is on a busy through street so we were concerned that traffic noise would intrude into the rooms. This was not the case. The beds were comfy. The fitness center is very small so be sure to ask the front desk for the free pass to the community pool, which is a 10 minute walk. Although the pass says "pool" there is also a nice fitness center there, which we also used. If you are up for a 30 minute hilly hike the Botanical Gardens lie beyond the community pool and are well worth a visit. Just follow the signs.

Hi Visit-upstate-NY,

Thank you for choosing to stay at The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel and reviewing our property.

Yes, you are correct about our views. While the River Derwent is visible from some of our rooms we don't classify them as "water views". Great that you found our location convenient being only one block from the waterfront and found our beds comfy and rooms quiet.

Happy to hear that you took advantage of our free passes to the Hobart Aquatic Centre and had a good "hike" over the domain to the Botanical Gardens.

We hope to see you again, and all the best for your future travels.

Thanks,
Scott.
