Clean and comfortable. Rather a long way from anywhere if you didn't have a car. Laundry very useful after a weeks travelling!

+good size room and view vs. the value. Strongly suggest book the room with river view instead of backyard parking view... -Bathroom meets just the minimum requirement.

My experience was disappointig as when we arrived there was no clean towels in the room, I had to bring it to the managers attention. The curtains wrer not heavy enough as you work up with the sunrise, windows scarey to open as I thought it was going to fall. Shower recess was lellow and Scummy.

Looked a bit untidy on the outside but nice big bed and plenty of parking and a bonus spa bath in the roomy bathroom. Also liked the central location (sort of half way between Glenorchy and the CBD) Was great value too!

Booked this as thought Leisure Inn chain would all be of a certain standard so would be be OK- well if they are the standard must be very low! A tiny, tiny room which looked out onto the car park. No facilities any where near the hotel- you need to drive to get to cafes, restaurants. To be honest we probably got what we paid for as it was very cheap, but we had higher expectations based on the description and photos.

The motel had been renovated inside, but the outside needed new paint. Our shower gel and the body lotion were empty on our arrival and were never topped up, had to wash with shampoo. Came back after a day out - the tea bags and the milk were re-supplied but the covers on the bed were only just thrown up, not even tucked in - never experienced that before in all our travels.

Good price as travelling on my own. Location good for me as had hire car but maybe too far out of CBD for those looking to use public transport. Service from reception and room service attendants was excellent. Extra tea,coffee, milk, sugar provided. Car parking free, laundry but washer broken while I was there but information on laundromat given to me. Internet available for a fee. I would stay again as easy road access to Airport and on the road to northern parts.

Its a hotel we enjoyed staying ......highly recommended. Front Office staff made me feel welcome. Much better that the Best Western wished I had stayed the 10 nights I stayed in Hobart.

We enjoyed our stay at Waterfront Lodge Leisure Inn Hobart but were disappointed that we could not watch TV as it was too small and up too high to watch. Also ABC was the only Channel available. We are telling friends it is a good place to stay as long as they do not want to watch TV.

Beds were very uncomfortable and cold. electric blanket was on high and only warm didnt get hot. pillows were flat as pancakes even when using two and the inner case looked like it needed a wash.

Access by car is good. The weather was (for us) cold. There were no additional blankets, so we went to bed fully clothed and still shivered.

There are a few rooms that have been converted from something else. These few rooms don't offer proper facilities, i.e. fridge and microwave in the toilet, no cabinet to keep and hang clothes in, they have a connecting door to another room, etc.
