We were fortunate enough to stay on the 7th floor in one of the suites (a free upgrade). The room was huge, with a lounge area separate to the bedroom and bathroom. Very comfortable and close to the center of Hobart. The staff on reception were friendly, helpful and efficient. The room and hotel was ideal for our short stay.

Reviewed 25 June 2016

I have stayed here twice in past 2 months on business and each time had a fifth floor room with a view and a balcony. First trip room faced the water, second trip faced the mountain. On both occasions, rooms were quiet enough for a good night's sleep. Quiet aircon and bar fridge too, big plus. Good water pressure in...

Although not in the centre of town the Best Western was clean and comfortable place to stay. Plenty of places to eat nearby too. Parking is charged and secure. Internet is free and fast. An easy walk to Salamanca Markets.

The motel was probably built in the 1960's and so rooms are not present style. Our room was satisfactory with good sized bed but rather small and the bathroom was tiny. So not up with more modern style motels. However, you get what you pay for!. The electronic room card system was unreliable and we had to update our card...

Our family of four only stayed in Hobart for one night before going back to Launceston. We had an interconnected room which the kids really liked. Breakfast was good and enjoyable. We will definitely come back again.

TV loose on wall,breakfast items cold.Channels as advertised not working which when you pay reasonable prices for a room you expect everything to be right.It is not good enough that you have to complain to the front desk to have things corrected.

We have stayed 4 nights so far and have another 2 to go. Staff are well trained, giving excellent service.

Over-rated hotel in Hobart. Rooms need upgrading. Phone wasn't working. Door didn't seem secure. Ordered big breakfast but couldn't finish it. Chairs had cigarette holes in them. Some positives: comfortable bed, convenient location, decent coffee and friendly staff.

Room was comfortable. Great walking distance to market & sights. Great Buffett breakfast which was included in our stay. We had dinner in the restaurant which also was a great meal. We really enjoyed our stay.
