Pleasant staff, fairly well kitted out gym (for a motel!), and a nicely appointed conference room. The accommodation itself is lovely. Soft comfy beds with great quality linen and clean bathrooms, what more do you need :) Highly recommended.

Stayed for two nights with two young boys in tow. King size bed was amazing! So soft and lovely linen! Separate tv for kids and grown ups. Buffet breakfast was really nice, refurbished room with the exception of the bath/shower but so much nicer than you may expect from the exterior alone. Absolutely enjoyed our stay. Friendly accommodating staff made...

The Best Western hotel is what you expect, a good clean room with a decent place to grab something to eat ( pizza) , bar, car parking( $10 a day) and room service. However the staff were very friendly and helpful so hats off to all of you. The beds were good although we had two single beds and they...

We were booked into this hotel as part of a large group. First impression was outside was old. Proceed to check in and as with all hotels money is spent on reception and foyer to look impressive. Check in and get to room and it's only just. Balcony door would not lock but since we were on the 4th floor...

On arrival we were given the wrong room cards three times!!! After repeated returns from our room to reception, finally staff came and opened the room with the main key card. We were then told to wait in the room with no cards so we couldn't leave. However upon entering the room it was discovered to be the wrong room...

The location was near the Sunday market and very convenient. The rooms were average size and OK. Their minibar snacks were displayed as though they were complimentary - beware!

The staff and facilities were fantastic for our Hobart short stay. Great central location, safe, secure and facilities. The room on the 5th floor needs a facelift, just to freshen it up and make sure everything was working (bedside clock) and locked and unlocked (balcony door). Hot chocolate sachets with the coffee would have been a nice touch as well...
