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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I booked the RACV Hobart as a special birthday present on 28th December 2023 for a 5 day stay in February 2024. We wanted to stay in waterfront Hobart. Then 24 hours before checking in the RACV Cancelled my booking. No reason was given. All I got was "Sorry sir we are fully booked now". You will need to contact your booking agent. So now I am trying to find alternate accommodation and notice Hobart is fully booked and sold out. THANK YOU RACV Hobart, GREAT BIRTHDAY PRESENT. Never again will you see me and be happy to tell anyone. I believe you have canceled my booking to receive a group booking. Great service!

Hotel's Favourite
The RACV hotel in Hobart is located n the middle of the Hobart shopping and restaurant precinct and in walking distance from most of Hobart’s local attractions and facilities. The parking was worth the cost and as long as you arrived back by 5:00pm, there was no trouble finding spots, however, in the morning it was tight getting out due to many extra cars being parked along the access way. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. My only criticism was that our corner room had the main bed located close to the door, but on the other side of the bathroom and kitchenette, away from the air conditioner and window in the lounge/dining area, so the sleeping area was hot and we heard all of the noise from the hallway, especially when people asked in the hallway or closed their doors. The doors to the rooms are heavy and noisy when they close. Our room was serviced daily with the beds made and fresh towels provided almost every one of our five days, even though we did not request this. We would happily stay there again.

Good hotel in good location. Parking can be difficult. Check in was efficient. Room was comfortable. Clean room had everything expected No view as we were on a lower floor. Good size bathroom. Appreciated lots of outlets to plug in all the devices one travels with. Nothing outstanding but good value.

Stayed for two nights on a recent trip to Hobart and really enjoyed our stay. Location is great, right in the middle of town so it's an easy walk anywhere you'd like to go in town. The room was really well appointed and comfortable. Loved the shutters over the windows and our room had a fantastic view to boot. Staff were brilliant to deal with, no request was too much trouble. Highly recommend this great hotel if you are in Hobart.

Stayed for 5 nights during a work trip to Hobart. The hotel is very well located for the CBD and has good car parking. The hotel is beautifully designed, incorporating historic architecture with the modern. Our king room was spacious with a comfortable bed, perfect pillows, good size fridge and everything needed for a pleasant stay. Housekeeping was excellent and the bathroom was kept spotless every day. The bar is great (though could do with more seats). Breakfast buffet was also really good. Really enjoyed this stay and will be back.

We stayed in the penthouse on the 8th floor. Was nice & clean. The outside area was big with lovely views of the water & the mountains, we only wish the weather was a bit nicer to enjoy more time sitting outside! All staff were professional & very friendly, reception staff fantastic & we were able to check in early as our room was ready. Staff at breakfast greeted us daily with a friendly welcome. We received a welcome gift of a bottle of red wine & chocolates & a hand written card wishing my husband a happy 50th birthday (the reason for our trip). A good central location to shops & a short walk to Salamanca & the waterfront. Would stay again next time we are in Tas 😊
