Great stay. Great location. Thought the room was just a double with two singles but got two queen beds that were nice and comfy. Quiet location with lovely views. With having a late check in they notified me about the key. Would stay again

I stayed two nights on a business trip. The rooms were comfortable, clean with good air conditioning / heating for the cold Hobart Weather. The staff were friendly. I did not experience the restuarant as I had business functions to attend, but the menu looked reasonable.
