Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot understand the negative reviews regarding Salamanca Wharf Hotel. We have just returned from 19 nights split up by a week in Queensland. I must say that it is ideal for that purpose with a good sitting area/kitchen, great bathroom and bedroom. We had two rooms - a street facing room with balcony on the 2nd floor forbour first week, followed by a rear facing room on the 3rd floor, no balcony, for the second stay. Both were good but the first one did lack good cupboard space in the bedroom. Some balcony furniture would have been nice. Both rooms had a washer/drier in the bathroom which is essential when you are away for a month. The car stacker for free parking is a very good facility as long as the car isn’t too big. No charge for this which is great. It is perhaps a little slow sometimes but you learn to adapt to this. The cafe is a great facility to have onsite, and the proximity to Salamanca and the rest of Hobart is great. It’s true that it doesn’t have good views, but that isn’t essential for us. The beds good be bigger, but that would be my only comment. Staff very friendly and helpful, especially housekeeping. If you are on a short stay then perhaps this isn’t the right place, but it was perfect for us - like having your own apartment. Can’t imagine staying anywhere else to be honest.

We spent two nights at Salamanca wharf Hotel. The room was fantastic the stuff great and the ideal location for sightseeing and just going for a walk around Salamanca to the bars and restaurants.. Only a short walk into the heart of Hobart and staying right on the docks was absolutely fantastic. Also we did the dinner cruise on Hobart Harbour which was really good

Paid top dollar for a well appointed apartment and got a bathroom which you find in a public park . No help what so ever from management. Showed them what we booked online and it went no where. The bathroom was a disabled bathroom with no hot water . Surely this should be for someone with special needs . Never back again

Lovely place to stay, very close to the waterfront, Salamanca, and all the tourist attractions of Hobart. Quiet street facing a marine research facility, (however no views of the water due to the building in front). Prices were good value when I stayed, reception staff very helpful and efficient. Rooms excellent, nice layout, clean and stylish. Bed very comfortable.

Certainly would not return to this hotel after our experience. Make sure you get what you have requested and payed for. We booked a premium King with washer and dryer. We got a room designed for disabled designed for showering in a wheelchair, extremely slippery floor, no washer dryer. Approached the receptionist and was given all the usual excuses but was told we would be moved next day. Alas in the morning told that nothing available they had given them all to a group booking. We had booked two premium kings as we were travelling with friends. The room they got was what we booked. The receptionist was polite to start with but soon become very defensive when questioned. Not a nice experience. Adjoining cafe good for breakfast. Absolutely enjoyed our two weeks in Tasmania and Hobart is a beautiful city.

Paid in advance for 3nights What we paid for and what we got was unacceptable !!!!!! King premium suite with washer/drier chosen as we had been traveling for two weeks prior so wanted to clean our clothes What we got was a large,cold dark room with wheelchair access for disabled people No washer/drier, bathroom was dangerous with totally wet floors when the shower was used including the toilet being in the same room. Bitterly disappointed !!! And we asked to change to the room we paid for but were told not available!!!!!!! We were Offered Maybe a bottle of sparkling wine to compensate. Not appropriate at a $1075.00 for 3night

Really enjoyed our stay here. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a studio apartment which was super roomy and well appointed. Thanks! :) Basically it is a self contained apartment - even having a washer/dryer combo. The car parking is a stacking system which was super easy to use. Check in was easy and the wonderful lady had even put the heating on in our room beforehand. Very thoughtful! Great location too. So many restaurants and bars close by. Though, in saying that, it is at the quieter end of the street. Would definitely stay again.

We chose to stay here as we wanted a location convenient to the wharf for one night. The whole experience was easy and enjoyable, from booking to check out. We booked a premium apartment with wheelchair access. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed with everything we needed. The bathroom has a great layout for access and has plenty of cupboard space and mirrors. The bed was soft and comfortable. The kitchen space had a well-stocked minibar with lots of Tasmanian produce for a reasonable price. The outlook onto the park behind the accommodation was also pleasant. We found the apartment quiet and very, very convenient. Had breakfast at Farzi, the cafe below, and thoroughly enjoyed this too. Fantastic coffee and menu choices. We would definitely stay here again!

We rarely stay in serviced apartments, but we may well change our mind after 4 days at the Salamanca Wharf Hotel. Clean, modern and with all the facilities right in the heart of Salamanca in Hobart. 5 min walk to the market on Saturday, but just far enough to escape the parking hassle. The cafe underneath provided a great start to the day and listened when we have specific food requirements. The reception and household staff we very helpful and friendly. We could not fault the place, although we would have liked firmer pillows (but that is just personal choice - my wife loved them). Highly recommend.
