“Excellent location, excellent hotel!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. Had fantastic room, not a great view but still something to look at. Had the king suite and it was huge. Biggest plus was the bathroom floor is heated!! Good car park available and breakfast included was excellent! Only place we'll stay from now on, 30 second walk and you're in the heart of Salamanca!

Our family, my husband and I , 14 year old son and 11 year old daughter, enjoyed our stay in a 3 bedroom apartment. Quiet, comfortable, clean and absolutely no complaints. Walking distance to the wonderful shops at Salamanca, and to fantastic cafes and eateries. We also enjoyed a short walk into the city. Parking was secure and no problems. Although the apartment was advertised as having no view, from ours we could see Mount Wellington and some of the city. An enjoyable stay - we shall be back.

We chose the Salamanca Inn primarily for the location. Arriving on a Saturday morning for a short weekend away, we wanted to drop our bags, go straight to the markets and have breakfast without any delays.

The hotel met that requirement perfectly. Check in was effortless, they stored our bags, and the training, politeness and efficiency of the staff we encountered on reception and elsewhere was second to none. The hotel is no more than 30 metres or so from the square, and a short walk to the water, ferries, etc.

We had a queen room on the first floor. The rooms were certainly spacious - lounge, large TV, small table to eat at. Furnishings (with the exception of the television) were more than adequate, but a little dated. The hotel is low rise, and I'm not sure that any of the rooms would have a great view. We looked over the neighbouring houses and garden, that was pleasant enough.

The swimming pool and spa wasn't really worth bothering with. Described as on the roof, it really has no aspect, view or style of any kind. There is a skylight over a small pool and spa. When we were there, the spa was full of teenagers taking selfies, so overall the experience didn't rate.

We had English Breakfast included. I'm used to English Breakfast as being a full breakfast, as distinguished from Continental. However, in the case of the Salamanca Inn the English Breakfast is actually a menu item, and doesn't entitle you to toast, cereal, or any other items from the buffet. This was a little odd.

If I was doing a weekend in Hobart again, I'd certainly consider the Salamanca Inn again.

We stayed in what was described as a deluxe 2 bedroom room apartment. At what is considered the high end for the tariff rates for comparable room configurations in Hobart for self contained accomodation this was best described as very dated in terms of the decor (80,s) the second bathroom flooded from the floor trap and the dishwasher did not work and we ended up with an extension cord running out of the kitchen cupboard across to another power point, very untidy given overnight rates. Additionally there were strong chlorine fumes from the down stairs gym pool.

It's a very bland business hotel but it was really good to stay in. We just booked a standard room but it was really large with a well equipped kitchenette. The bed is at one end of the room and there is a really comfortable couch and chair as well as a reasonable sized dining table and chairs.
The bathroom is large and has heated tiles on the floor. The room was really quiet and warm. The location is right in the middle of the Salamanca area so very handy to the cafes, the waterfront and the market in Salamanca place. Th e receptionists were extremely friendly and helpful and were quite happy to give us a late check out. There's a small pool on the roof. I don't think any of the rooms would have much of a view but it's pretty easy to go for a walk and see the scenery.

The best thing about this hotel is its location: it's in the middle of Salamanca and is literally steps to the Saturday Salamanca market. It's also walking distance to Battery Point and the ferries. The rooms are quite spacious and the bathroom is quite clean and spacious as well. That said, their furniture could do with a bit of updating, which is the only downside for me. The front desk staff was very helpful as well.

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was THE best location. Easy to walk to Jackman and McRoss (best patisserie), Salamanca markets, ferry to MONA, TMAG, a range of restaurants. The staff (especially Michelle on the front desk) were so helpful and friendly. The kids loved the indoor heated pool and spa and thought that was one of the best things ever. We stayed in the split level room for four and it had great views and was really comfortable. A very well appointed kitchenette made it very easy as well. Parking was easy and free - in the hotel carpark. A great stay!

Room Tip: It was great fun to have the split level room. The bathroom is on the top level but that is no drama...
