Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great hotel, central location, free onsite parking, spacious rooms, we even had a separate lounge area and a kitchenette. Staff were very friendly accommodating. Restaurants are close by, Constitution dock just 2km away. Would highly recommend staying here.

The bed is comfy, the room is spacious and clean. The property is a great location with a quirky history. Staff are friendly. Breakfast is a little bit basic for a Buffett; we also had dinner which was lovely! Housekeeping is only on site from 9-2 so if you miss them you need to wait until the next day - not the end of the world or a big deal but good to know. Plenty of parking which is great if you have hired a car. Would stay again!

Fab stay here for 8 nights in the exec antique suite. Massive room with lots of space. A small fridge which was filled but we used it for our purchases too. You could easily have a night in and wouldn’t feel cramped and there was a good size sofa and dining table. Very quiet too and bed was comfortable and warm. Breakfast was delicious and those eggs are yum. There was also a bar and restaurant onsite that had great food available. A 20-30 min walk into town depending how quick you walk but the bonus is it’s all downhill and there’s a few great spots along the way to eat and drink and grab coffees. Staff here were lovely and friendly. Plenty of car parking spaces and you can charge a car here too. There were also a couple of cars to rent via Kinto but we didn’t have any issues with Uber and it was only $8-10 into town. This place is very unique and some of the pieces make it feel like a well loved museum. Great spot and would deffo recommend.

Clean and comfortable. Room was spacious. One problem that irritated us. Bottle of water in minibar $4. Ridiculously overpriced. Water?! How about $2 instead? Why not? Breakfast buffet good. Clean dining area. Will stay again with byo bottled water.

Dear Daydream49331551997, Great to hear you found the rooms spacious, clean, comfortable our our breakfast buffet good. I am sorry that you felt the bottled water was overpriced. We do offer a discount when purchasing 2 bottles which totals $6 so $3 each and this is displayed on the minibar list and apologise if this was missed. Alternatively, the tap water in Tasmania is perfectly safe to drink. We are so pleased you will return to stay with us again and look forward to welcoming you back.

Lovely place to stay, friendly staff, great breakfast. Plenty of room, great view as it is uphill. At 2.5 km it is easy to walk into the city or a cab in a few minutes. The house keeping wasn't quite up to mark, usually in a hotel if you stay for 6 nights you get a change of sheets in the middle, perhaps a water problem.

Booking system took our booking but when we got there nothing was on the system, did not know about advertised price on web at front desk, apparently "Head office put them up from time to time" Shouldn't your staff be aware of them then??? Nice lounge room however no tv???? could only watch the tv in the bedroom??? All other hotels we've stayed in have one in each room. Very poor Upon checkout had to wander around to find staff who was in the kitchen making a coffee

Dear Michelle T. Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are really disappointed to read that your recent stay was not up to scratch and apologise that this was the case. While we always endeavour to make the booking process as seamless as possible I am sorry that your booking made via our website was not received. Usually, successful bookings made drop directly into our system and a confirmation is sent to your email. I hope the front desk team was able to resolve this for you on check in and minimised any inconvenience. While a majority of our rooms have the TV located in the bedroom we do have some rooms that feature a TV in the living room. The team are always available to assist with any concerns you may have during your stay and would have looked to move you to one of these rooms if preferred. We would love the opportunity to welcome you back in the future as we are certain your next stay will be an enjoyable one. Please contact the hotel directly so we can ensure you are well looked after with the most suitable room and a great rate.
