Great location!

We booked the harbour view room with breakfast buffet included and were excited to see we were given a room on level 10, until we realised that level 10 is actually the first floor of rooms! Our view was affected by an awning of the hotel and we asked to be moved, but according to the guy downstairs we could only be moved one floor higher (despite us paying for a better room! he suggested if we wanted something more we could pay $35/night but we politely declined). This was a better view though and the bed and pillows were very comfortable and the room was very clean. Breakfast was enjoyable as well. And the location was just perfect!

Relaxing Trip with my husband

The hotel more than reached expectations. We have stayed in the GC chain many times elsewhere and it did not disappoint. The location was fantastic and staff very helpful. I found the bed a bit hard but that's my taste. Breakfast was lovely and the freshly made juices were a nice touch. Pity there is no lift from the car park!

Good for a quick stay

Not particularly bursting with character but it has all the ammenities you need, a fantastic location and reasonably priced. Parkings an added cost, which seems unnecessary. Late checkout is fantastic. Overall; the type of service and accomodation to be expected from a large chain hotel.

Good value and great position

Great central location, with beautiful outlook over harbour and mountain. Easy walk to docks for yummy seafood meals catering for all price ranges. Actually, easy scenic walk to Salamanca via historic buildings and wharves and to the museum too. Kids really enjoyed the pool. Parking upon arrival a bit short in supply and had to go around the block twice to be able to pull up to front entrance to check in and get carpark admission.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

If you have a car, then take your luggage in to the foyer with you as you check in and have them take it up to your room. Much easier than lugging bags and paraphenallia and kids upstairs to the foyer from the basement carpark. You see the lift does not service the carpark, and only goes from ground level. Once checked in and you receive your parking swipecard and directions of where to go to park the car, it will be much easier to only drag yourself up the stairs. Of course it depends how much luggage you have, but we found it a bit cumbersome.

Still confused

I seemed to have a bad run with the reception at this hotel. Firstly they wanted to take 200 dollars bond because I used a debit card to prepay for my room rather than a credit card, I'm not a big hotel stayer and no where else I stayed during this trip asked for this. So I tried asking about it and was just fed absolute nonsense that was barely English and made no sense. I had a similar experience later when asking about parking and was left wondering if I was going to get double charged or have my car towed. Again on checkout they confused me when they had somehow forgotten they had taken an additional 200 bucks and wanted to charge me more for parking. I left with a receipt telling me they had taken 9 bucks for parking and then refunded it but gave me no paperwork on the 200 and just a load more confusing waffle. So at this point I don't know if I'll ever see that cash again. On top of the staff nightmares the room had no working aircon, and even though this was the middle of winter the room was an oven. We had to leave the windows open all night which left us listening to traffic. The windows seemed incredibly thin though as you heard the traffic if they were open or closed. Overall not a good stay and left us wanting to leave tasmania sooner rather than later unfortunately.

Comfortable, large rooms and central

I had a very comfortable stay. Staff are friendly, rooms are large and spacious. My only criticism would be the in-room dining menu. I was ill during my stay and could not face going out for food. The menu is very limited with very few healthy options available.
