“Good location, Quiet and Comfortable”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Stayed for 3 nights ( stay three, pay for two) with our RAC membership, plus 25% discount. Also parking included. You need to have checked in to access the car park, so park in Victoria Place if possible. We had an apartment and it was newly refurbished, good value for money. Very quiet and comfortable. Easy access to everything Hobart has to offer, would recommend.

Room Tip: Higher up, to take in the views of the mountain

Sailing weekend.

Spacious room but bath cracked in the new hotel ! with sealant applied- something about Tasmanian building quality. Told that changes will be made.

Someone set off fire alarm cooking in room - didn't use extractor fan!!!

Laundry in kitchen excellent.

Handy restaurant and friendly staff. Great movies

Worth trying as in room facilities are great

Room Tip: lower floors have limited city views

We booked for four nights, intending to travel further afield, but when our circumstances changed, we asked if we could stay another two nights. The first room we had was great - clean, quiet and better than we expected. The hotel had a three nights for the cost of two offer, but as we booked for only four originally, we didn't think we'd get the other two nights for the price of one. The staff couldn't have been more helpful though, organising our request and moving our luggage to the new room they gave us, as the first room was part of a two-room suite required for new guests.
Imagine our delight when we went to out new room - a penthouse suite far better even than our perfect first room!
Everything about this hotel was perfect - the staff, location, ease of parking - nothing could have made our stay more perfect.
Thanks to everyone involved, from front of house staff to cleaners, including the girl who asked if we wanted more tea and milk.
I've stayed at other RACV resorts - but none was even near this one in perfection.

Room Tip: You don't have to worry about which room you get - I'm sure they're all perfect.

Great service from Megan on front desk and others.

Stayed in a mid range room with kitchenette. Room was large and recently freshened up. Hotel was clean and tidy.

Hotel was within walking distance of cbd and Salamanca. Happy with our decision to stay at RACT.

Spent 2 nights here and we were very impressed! Great location, walking distance to shops, Salamanca markets and free parking! The parking is in a side street so just look it up in advance and you will be fine! Modern apartment hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Will stay again!

Currently being further upgraded this lovely apartment hotel has great rooms even the King sized has a useful if small kitchen area.
Close to shops bit of a walk to the waterfront - walk off the calories!!
Bathrooms and rooms are big, light & spacious.
Look out for member specials so if you belong to any motoring organisation anywhere in the world you might find you will qualify for these specials ie pay 2 get 3 or free upgrades.
Did not eat there so cannot review food but great staff ant excellent service they go the extra mile & use their initiative!!

Room Tip: Ask for room with a view the higher the better!!

My husband and I spent a long weekend in Hobart. We left booking our accommodation far too late and struggled to find a boutique or semi luxury hotel. A search through Trip Advisor gave us some options, but as most of you know, when reading the reviews, you cannot be exactly sure of their perspective.
We finally decided on the RACT and elected to use the Penthouse Suite.
We arrived by Taxi, it was no trouble for the driver to locate the entrance on Collins Street..as a local, he knew it well. Tick one against those who had made review comments about the difficulty in finding it.
We checked with no fuss, discreet staff, we had only hand luggage and needed no one to assist.
Up to the Penthouse. Very, very pleasant. Very large rooms, lovely bright windows, well appointed bathroom and kitchen. Facilities to match. Very good quality toiletries and coffee and tea facilities.
Deliciously large and firm king bed, we slept so well. A pillow menu...which is a real bonus.
We also used the gym, it was perfect for us, not another guest there, television, clean towels, great equipment.
Used room service one night, delicious food and not too expensive.
Yes, one to two reviewers did say the lights in the bathroom make it impossible to apply make up, I have to agree. I hope RACT sees this as one area to improve on.
Good walking distance to Salamanca Place, about 6 minutes. Maybe use a taxi if you are not bringing a car. Taxis are excellent in Tasmania.
So congratulations to RACT, we loved our all to brief stay. Hopefully we will be back less than the 11 years it took us this time, but that was our honeymoon and another story...we didn't stay here sadly.
