We visited Hobart for a long weekend at the mid winter solstice and the "Big Moon". We wanted a hotel where Salamanca Market, the waterfront and the restaurant strip was just around the corner, we wanted a warm hotel: Salamanca Inn delivers on this. We were hiring a car and needed access to off street parking. Salamanca Inn offered this: free. Access from the car park to the hotel foyer is very easy. Reception at all times was staffed with people who really knew their stuff and clearly enjoyed working with people. They were helpful, pleasant and friendly. We wanted good internet reception: Salamanca Inn not only offers internet access, they have a computer in your room! We took a Queen apartment which is very spacious: nice big clean bathroom, plenty of vanity space. The bed and bedding was comfortable and adequate, would have welcomed extra pillows. The storage and hanging space was generous. The leather lounge and wide screen TV was welcome. The apartment comes with a kitchenette fully equipped to cook a meal should you desire to, but who is going to come to Hobart and stay on the restaurant strip and actually want to cook? Only thing missing was a coffee plunger, we always take our own, anyway. Would have liked a view, but, hey, this is not a perfect world. You have to go to a higher floor to get a view. The bathroom had a shower in the bathtub, all fairly solid, with a bit of a step down to exit the tub. There are so many hotels that do not offer a rail for support when climbing out of a slippery wet bathtub after a shower. This is such a common phenomenon that you could be left wondering if the accident rates are so low that no one bothers? Lots of hotel have a magnifying mirror for shaving and makeup. This one didn't. To that end we have found a suction stick on travelling mirror. And, yes, it was the only thing we forgot to pack when we left. There are hotels all over the world with a bonus magnifying mirror, compliments of us! The housekeeping was prompt and unobtrusive. We did take the breakfast option. You can have continental breakfast, or for a $6 upgrade, which we took, the reason being that it was too cold to go out for breakfast first thing in the morning. The breakfast menu is more than adequate. The Continental Breakfast is also quite adequate and delicious, especially the local creamy yoghurt. This is a hotel I would stay at again.
