“very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2009

Don't be put off by the outside appearance of this old hotel which is quite insignificant. As soon as we walked inside we knew we had made the right decision, the place has a lovely homely feel and the owner 'Tildy' and her mother 'nan' really added to that feeling, very friendly and welcoming. Tildy has done a marvellous job of re-furbishment. We stayed in the ensuited room which was great. Breakfast was a real pleasure, really cosy and homely. Great location, very close to everything.

Central, clean,quiet, friendly and obliging a more than adequate breakfast, plus the hostess with the mostest of them all.
What more can you ask for in a budget hotel. Maybe a hot water bottle if you need it which we didn't.

Kudos to Tildy for making our stay memorable and comfortable. Her warm, inviting, informal personality charmed us and made us feel right at home. The Astor is within quick walking distance of Elizabeth Pier and Salamanca Market, with private parking behind the hotel for our car. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! And next time we will bring Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - Tildy's favorite! If you are traveling from the US to Hobart, bring her some, please.

I had a lovely experience at the Astor Private Hotel, I stayed there for five nights for $90 p/n over April 2009. I found Tildy (The Hostess) was very friendly and happy to chat with and recommend Hobart attractions and tours. I stayed in a Double bed room with shower and though small it was more than adequate, clean and neat. It is old-fashioned but very comfy and a shared toilet was just down the hall. My bed was made for me every day and I had fresh linen about every second day. There was a heater in the room (I had lovely weather and didn't need it). The bed was very cosy and soft , and I had the choice of 3 pillows. There is a bit of traffic noise as you look out onto the street- But I was able to sleep very well. Breakfast in the morning was a god-send and you could chat with other travellers... altogether perfect!!!!

We stayed 3 nights recently and loved every minute of it! The hostess, Tildy, was absolutely wonderful and our kids fell in love with her. The hotel has all room types to suit all budgets. Even the beautifully renovated ensuite rooms are still ridiculously affordable. If you are looking for a base in Hobart within walking distance to everything, filled with charm, a welcoming atmosphere and a true hidden gem, don't stay anywhere else!!!

We had a great stay at the Astor Private. It's in a fantastic location, close to the harbour and walking distance to all the central restaurants and bars. The hostess, Tildy, was very endearing and the hotel, while old, was one of the most homely and comfortable places I've stayed. All very clean and even sharing a bathroom wasn't an issue. Perfect for a cheap break.
