Was going to Melbourne for 5 days and decided to go to Hobart for two days as haven't been for 32 years. Booked Hadleys and friends & family in Melb.very hesitant. Couldn't be happier, great location, rooms old fashioned but clean & great size and customer service exceptional. Would certainly stay there again.

We stayed 1 Sunday night in Hobart at Hadleys Hotel. It was kinda cool that this is the oldest hotel in all of Tasmania and had a vintage feel to it (chandeliers, the outside fascade, the green plush chairs in the rooms). For those who prefer more modern hotels though, probably stay away. The bath/shower in our room was a bit dated, with crack in the handrail. There's not really a view, as it simply overlooks the dining area and to other rooms.

The car parking was also inconvenient as it is situated off site (just a street away) and on the 6th and 7th floor of the carpark (in the corner of the carpark). We had to carry and wheel our luggage to/fro the carpark to the hotel, and the spots are in the very corner which made it a tight spot to get into. This was a concern as we had a hire car, but thank goodness we came on a Sunday so the adjacent spots were empty. This was also the only hotel we booked during our entire Tas trip that we had to pay parking for...

Location wise - it's a very convenient walk down to the Salamanca area.

Dear Fiona L,
Thank you for providing this review of your recent stay at Hadleys Hotel Hobart. Hadleys was first built in 1834 by convict labour and is the oldest continuously operating boutique hotel in Tasmania. Most of our guests stay for the old world charm and heritage features of the building. Thank you for pointing out the improvements which need to be made to our bathrooms, we will be addressing these shortly when the hotel will under-go some restoration works across the entire property. For future stays, please feel free to request a different room outlook; some of our rooms look out over the lovely St David’s Cathedral on Murray Street. Our guests arriving by car are welcome to park in the no-parking zone, at the front of the hotel, to unload their bags and check-in. They are then directed to our off-site, secure, under-cover parking located 270m down the road from the hotel. We have been allocated parking spaces on levels 6, 7 and 8 and car parks are available on a ‘first arrival’ basis.
Thanks again and we hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Kind regards

I stayed one night in May 2014. The Hotel is staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms are cosy and comfortable and very good value for the price. Nearby is the waterfront and Salamanca Markets, a very pleasant way to spend a few hours.

We just had a quick trip to Hobart staying at Hadleys Hotel. After having lived in Tasmania many years ago we have regular trips back and always enjoy staying there. I was told the hotel has a new owner and lots are planned for the stately old girl, I look forward to a return trip to see the result. I love this hotel, the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the pillows are large and you sink into them, it's just a great hotel to stay at. Hadleys is walking distance to all the places you need to visit, this time we did not hire a car and enjoyed getting around on foot. You are surrounded by great restaurants or you can eat at the hotel, we had breakfast there and it was a nice start to the day, a good breakfast, The one exception was the coffee machine, they should remove that, even instant would be better than the coffee from that machine. The one thing I did miss was the open fire in the bar, I hope they decide to keep that after refurbishing. The staff are wonderful very friendly and will go out of their way to help or chat and advise, I can not rate this hotel high enough, if you want a modern cold place it's not for you, for warmth and style then book and enjoy.

I have been very fortunate to take high tea at Hadley's a few times now, and it is without doubt the best in Hobart. The restaurant s beautiful and cosy and the sweet and savoury treats are delicious with a fantastic choice of teas, or Janz by the glass. I guess the only thing I could say that isn't so good is that over time the serving sizes have gotten smaller. Last time we had just one scone, four little sweet treats, and three little quarter sandwiches each. We left hungry. The photo is what was provided for three people.

The staff at Hadley's were always happy and helpful. I had family members with medical problems and the staff used their initative to help this family member. I can honestly not express how amazing the stuff were.

The rooms were clean and cosy.

The bistro has good honest cheap pub food.
