Minimalist says it all about this hotel.
It has no service, no lift, no furniture in the room and no windows.
The sole staff member acts as receptionist, cleaner and kitchenhand.
The free cereal and toast breakfast was the only positive. Treat as a last resort only.

Stayed here on a Wofif deal. Advertises as luxury but in no way is. Small room and the bathroom is nicer than the room.

Very noisy. Can hear others showering loudly and clearly.

Apparently there is a breakfast. Did not ask. Figured may have to pay given the wotif mystery deal and may as well have it at the Qantas Club.

Would not stay here again. Better off to pay a bit more and get a lot more.

My partner found the staff to be a bit rude and did not explain things such as the "trick" opening the door. Room was ok but bathroom was way yoo small. Balcony room was supposed to have harbour views but only saw rooftops and cranes. No car parking so metered parks were her only option.

This is the worst night my partner and I have expereinced. The room was small, with no window, dusty and the matress old and uneven. Anything that had in the past broken was left unfixed. Several of the channels of the TV did not receive reception and the cord was sticky taped across the bench. We did not bother to sample the free continental breakfast.

Unfortunately I was double-booked from my original accommodation and as Cold Chisel were in town, I had no choice but to stay there unless I wanted a night on the streets The reception is unmanned most of the time and there is no lift. The room was tiny - the bed was pushed against one wall, with no window (just glass bricks), no window coverings, no bedside table, no bedside lamp, no telephone, no place for my case but on the limited 'empty' floor space about 1 metre in depth. There was the tiniest container of curdled milk in the fridge which I asked to be replaced and 2 teabags. I spent as little time as possible in the room catching the late night picture show returning around 11.30pm. I was unable to sleep as the lights were shining through the glass biricks from outside and streaming underneath the large gap in the door. The room was also noisy - I could hear the plumbing from the other rooms - toilets, showers and taps and the constant drone of an over-worked fridge as it had been crammed into a space with no ventilation. The room was airless - the only option being to switch on an air-conditioner and have cold air blowing over me. As I could not sleep I got up at 5.30 am and went out to take some photos around Hobart and get some air. As soon as I crossed the road and turned round to take a picture a demented woman shouted after me to not take pictures.... Had she been watching me??? I had already decided to give their "free" breakfast a miss - it looked less than appealing. I had to collect my cases and face another torrent of abuse as I was leaving - the woman is not quite right. If you have any choice in the matter - give this place a big miss, it shouldn't be allowed to trade. They might have 1 or 2 decent rooms but the small rooms are definitely substandard and are most probably in breach of quite a few Accommodation Standards Laws.

Stayed there for one night because everywhere else was booked out. The room had no window, only glass bricks. Room v noisy, could easily hear all steps and noises from the tiled hall. Big gap between the room door and the floor, so that the fluorescent light from the hall showed through, reminding us of a hospital. Had to place a towel in front of the gap so as to be able to sleep.

To say the bed was worn is an understatement.

Too high a price for such experience.

We stayed at Harringtons 102 for our first night in Tasmania and were pleased - comfortable clean room, friendly & helpful hostess, satisfactory breakfast and very close to car hire & restaurants. Everything we needed - thank you.
