Astor Private Hotel
Ranked #1 of 28 Hobart B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 30, 2014

I stayed at the Astor for a few nights having completed the Sydney-Hobart race this year. The accommodation was warm, comfortable and clean - and a welcome rest after the race. Tildy (the manager) was brilliant and made me feel very welcome. The hotel was great value and exactly what I expected from the website. Close to downtown and 5-10 minutes from the marina. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Most rooms do not have en suite - you need to ask for these.

My partner and I stayed at the Astor Private Hotel for a night in January and then returned for a few nights after an adventure in Cygnet. This was our second stay at the Astor and it lived up to our memories. We were in a double room with a shower (No toilet). The bed was ridiculously comfortable, there was a simple breakfast every day and the shared toilets were always available and well kept. Tildy is a gem. She's funny and chatty with a keen awareness of her guests' needs.

We stayed at the Astor Hotel last weekend for two nights and enjoyed our time there. The hotel decor is old and charming with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Tildy at the front desk was bubbly and helpful. The rooms are basic but have all that you need. The bathroom facilities are shared but they were very clean; we didn't see any other guests using the bathrooms during our stay so it wasn't an issue. The continental breakfast was sufficient with coffee/tea, toast and cereals. The best thing about the Astor is the location, within walking distance to pretty much everything which we thought was great value considering the low cost per night to stay here compared with others close by. We had no issues with parking and found a free spot right out the front. We will definitely be back to stay at the Astor and would recommend it to anyone. Loved Hobart so much, a great little city!

I stayed 2 nights at the Astor, & found it fine as a quirky old style private hotel.
Rooms are plain & clean, with no ensuite. Floorboards are creaky, so there's no sneaking about! (Lol)
Breakfast in the dining room was simple but more than adequate. Service very friendly, & handy City location.

The manageress (Tildy) made the stay very comical. I recommend you stay here just for the entertainment she provides. She had us laughing in stitches every morning at breakfast and she has a luggage store where you can leave luggage.

Room Tip: Be polite and friendly to Tildy

my husband and I stayed at the Astor hotel over the Christmas period for four days and then went on to port Arthur for a 2 night stay and back to the Astor to have our last 4 days in Hobart before finishing an amazing holiday in Tassie.
staying at the Astor was the absoloute icing on the cake! Tildy made our stay an enormous hoot,we felt very relaxed there and had so many laughs (so good for your soul) she is a very giving person and runs a top hotel.bewwdiful clean white sheets,spotless rooms and bathrooms with amazing white towels(dislike grey white towels in other places).we will stay again for sure,so glad we found this place! also the staff are so friendly and obliging,great team overall!!
love your work guys:)

Room Tip: we had an ensuite room with beautiful polished floor boards and a window you could open,which seems...

This is a great establishment in the centre of Hobart run by a gem of a lady. Tildy is an absolute legend and a quick glance at the large number of positive reviews says it all about Tildy's Ascot. No matter what one's income one would be wise to stay no where else. A very reasonable price to pay for a life experience!

Room Tip: Any room Tildy is prepared to let you occupy is fine.
