This hotel consists of serviced apartments, with a mixture of long-term and short-term guests. The location is very nice, within easy walking distance of shopping, the Boag’s brewery district and (a bit longer) a lovely city park/garden plus the Tasmania Design Center, a must if you like fine design in wood.
We stayed in early April for one night in a king one bedroom spa unit which was quite nice. The living area had a modern three-person couch, coffee table and flat panel TV. The kitchen facilities include a microwave, a small refrigerator, a sink, a kettle and sachets of instant coffee and tea. There was no dining table, but there was an amply-sized desk. There is also a small balcony, although since we were on the side of a main road, the noise was a definite drawback. If you are not already a member of the Accor Hotels’ loyalty program, you’ll need to join in order to get free WiFi. This seems to be true even if you are just using the public computer in the hotel’s lobby to print boarding passes. To date, joining has not produced any unwanted e-mails from the program.
The bathroom, with a Jacuzzi tub separate from the spacious shower, was very nice. There was ample counter space for toiletries, and also drawer(s). Breakfast consists of a very modest continental cold buffet and a large menu of cooked items. On the buffet, the pastries were less than inspiring, and the fruit offered was not ripe. The nicer touches, such as fruit compotes or Birchermuesli that we found at other large chains were absent. From the cooked menu, the eggs Benedict had a lovely lemony Hollandaise sauce, but one of the poached eggs was almost hard-boiled, while the other was very runny.
There is covered parking for $8/night, but it leaves a lot to be desired. The spaces in the bays for hotel guests are few, and very narrow. If you have a passenger, they will need to exit the vehicle before you pull in – otherwise, they’ll be trapped overnight.
