Customs House Waterfront Hotel, built in 1846, has been owned by the Jubb family since 1992. The Jubb’s are 5th generation hoteliers with owners Paul and Karen managing the hotel alongside their children Robert and Emily. Located 2 minutes walk from the Salamanca Markets, Brooke St Pier, Constitution Dock, Pennicott’s Tours, the ferry to MONA Museum and Hobart’s shopping precinct, we have the perfect location for your Waterfront getaway in Hobart. Customs House Hotel is an icon in Hobart. Built in 1846 for one of the early settlers, Charles Gaylor, whose name is carved into the front copping stone, it was named after Customs House (now Parliament House) next door. Affectionately called the “Chop House” it was, and still is, known for a good meal and a soothing ale. We offer 30 warm and charming accommodation rooms upstairs. All recently renovated with new bathrooms and furnishings, the rooms offer a touch of modern in a historic setting.

We had a lovely lunch with friends during our visit to the wooden boat festival. The restaurant was very busy and the staff were flat out but very friendly and welcoming. Great place for a nice pub meal good atmosphere very well placed for walking around the harbour of Hobart.

Super location on the harbour. Very friendly staff and a clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was a real bonus. Good food and plenty of choice. This hotel was good value for money. It is a busy pub so don't expect an early night.
