High tea at Hadleys has been extensive advertised in the local press so I was keen to try it. We had a reservation for 30 or so guests and were advised that High Tea started at 2pm and were all duly there on time.

I recently stayed at Hadley's with my boyfriend during a holiday in Tasmania. We stayed in many different places during our trip to Tassie and used the comments on trip adviser as a guide when choosing where to stay. Unfortunately Hadley's looked as though it had had a bad run on TA and my boyfriend was really reluctant to book... More

On a family trip to Tasmania my mother insisted we book at Hadley's due to her memories in recent years of the grandness and elegance of the property and particularly the breakfast room.

What an unexpected treat. It has just reopened after extensive renovations and what a treat it was. I thought I was at the Windsor Hotel in Melbourne. Location perfect to the harbour and Salamanca, lovely rooms and very reasonable prices. When MONA gallery changes it's displays again we will be back.

Location is outstanding, we had wonderful service from a young lady on the desk. Breakfast was included with the package and was delicious and plentiful. Only downside is the room was a little small and it didnt have a light - just a lamp! Very comfy beds and the decor is lovely. Definitely recommend.
