My husband I stayed overnight, everyone was very nice, the bed was extremely comfortable, it had the charm of an old hotel, and close to shops and restaurants, highly recommend if staying in the city.

I stayed here at the last minute after my previously arranged accommodation fell through. I was really surprised at how well-appointed and central it was – and the tariff was more than reasonable, it was a bargain, including continental breakfast, free wifi and complimentary bottle of wine on arrival (upgrade to full breakfast buffet was only $7). Bathroom toiletries were...

I wasn't aware about the "off site parking", my fault entirely, an extra $15. The staff were all very helpful, the bed was fantastic! The hot water pressure was weak & fluctuating. The continental breakfast was ordinary. The lighting in my atrium facing room was annoying, 4 lamps, none above chest height, no light from above, just plain weird, romantic...

Hadleys would be absolute perfection if it weren't for the parking situation. No parking on site, but the hotel will give you a space a block away for $15 a day. I think this place would be perfection if they offered valet parking. The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The service is great also....

My wife and I took a short break to Hobart and when looking for Hotels I came across Hadleys Orient Hotel, which I had stayed in many years ago. What a pleasant surprise for a hotel that was built in 1834 in that it has kept its old charm but modernized to encompass all the latest services that current hotels...

There has been very careful attention to recapturing the period details in decor and atmosphere. Great food service, both for the high tea and meals, including the bar.

Without exception the staff are warm, personable and knowledgable about the hotel and its services to assist with any question....

Great old world hotel with great service. Beautiful brocade furnishings and super comfy bed. Lovely old chesterfields throughout the hotel to sink into after a hard day of touristing.

This place is an amazing building, with endless corridors and staircases. When we entered our superior room at first it's like walking into some old palace. The ceilings are some 20ft up, and the room and bed are huge. But from that point on it becomes clear that Hadleys doesn't really work as a modern hotel. The bathroom floor becomes...

Dear geoffrey_matt, Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you did not find Hadley’s Orient Hotel to be a grand hotel. We have investigated your review and believe you were allocated a modified access room which allows wheelchair access into the bathroom and the shower is, therefore, not enclosed.

Hotel was under renovation while we were there, but it wasn't too intrusive. The room we had was very nice and large with a comfy bed. The hotel staff were all lovely and helpful. The hotel has a lovely atrium where you can have a drink, the rest is old fashioned styling and will appeal to the older generation.
