Just a pass

The room was so small you had to go outside to change your mind. They cannot do anything because it is so small.

Room for the whole Family

Great place to stay. Convenient comfortable and clean. The staff service was very accommodating . The building was a little noisy with early risers showering.

Comfortable stay

I had a heritage room, so it was in an old house, which I thought might be noisy. Wooden floors in my room and the passage way made it easy to hear when others arrived or left, footsteps could be heard. The room was neat and with the heater turned on, the winter chill in Hobart was abated. Very friendly reception staff. Would stay again, it was a bargain price.

Only water front

There is nothing around the hotel. It's really dark at night, and there's no light to let you know where the hotel is. It's hard for a person to find the hotel at night. It just panted, so it's really smelled. Only the view is fine. Not so many boat, but it's really in front of water. Make sure you really wanna stay here! Good luck.

Night Away

When I went to check in, at first they couldn't find me and started asking if I was someone else giving me card details, then proceeded to tell me it wasn't paid, I had to show my id along with my card and where I had paid, and It took forever for us to get checked in. I would also like to say that the parking is a nightmare and not a whole lot of room to even turn around. I really enjoyed the spa and did have a good night's sleep though.

great value in Hobart

we stayed two nights in December. Hotel looks shabby from outside but all freshly painted internally. good sized room. NO air conditioning but had a heater and a fan. Friendly and obliging front desk staff. free Wi Fi in the lobby worked very well and fast. We would stay there again but not in the middle of summer.

Tiny little room but ok for the price

This room was apparently called a comfort room but was almost too small to be comfortable. Tariff very reasonable though and it did have a reasonable LCD TV, Microwave, Kettle and Toaster. They do have bigger rooms and the location is pretty good for access to most parts of Hobart
