“No air! Dirty, dusty, filthy windows. Rats in the back courtyard!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2011

If only we had read the reviews before we booked this place. There is no air con, which is extraordinary considering we paid so much money for four nights over NYEve. As we needed to close the windows to sleep at night due to noise, the rooms are very stuffy. The rooms are actually very nice in themselves, but the absolutely filthy windows and inside window sills were unacceptable for the price. The location looking over Taste Festival is fabulous - what little we could see though the muck. The dirty smeared hand marks all over the kitchen and laminated menus and info sheets was very off putting. I even spent some time cleaning all the kitchen glasses so we could have a drink and feel more comfy during our four day visit. There is also rather a lot of dust on the carpet. Has anyone cleaned in here? Having said all that, the bed and bath are clean. Plus, only 4 tv channels? Just ludicrously overpriced for what you get. Saw rats in the bar courtyard and staff seemed unconcerned. Would not return. Stayed at Henry Jones Art Hotel on the way in and it was worth every cent. Stay there!

First impressions are excellent. Lovely room, great location, very comfortable bed. It feels just great.

But then ...

The couple using the next room arrived. I jumped because I thought they were entering my room - it was so loud. But it wasn't their fault - the wall between our room was as though it wasn't there. I heard everything. And over the next hour, I heard EVERYTHING ... awkward!!

Maybe if you're planning a romantic stay in Hobart, try a place where the adjacent rooms don't unwittingly become an audience.

Sorry, can't recommend it because of that. Won't stay again unless it's properly fixed.

We stayed here for 4 nights and found the room to be very spacious, modern, and very comfortable. Fantastic location right in Salamanca Place close to restaurants and bars and the famous markets are literally at your door. The only downside would be that the room did get a little stuffy at night but a ceiling fan would fix that. I would stay here again.

I found this hotel had a great location overlooking Salamanca Markets, great amenities and was very clean. The room was serviced each day.

The restaurant downstairs was great. Especially the salmon.

Highly recommended. Would definitely return.

We stayed at Quarry in late July on a very good rate. At first site the rooms look great. Relatively new, compact and well appointed. The bathroom has a huge bath and good quality amenities.

Everytime you walk into the room you are hit with a stale waft of air, mainly because the bathroom drain is uncovered and the smell of old water fills the room.

The accommodation overall was great.

We ate breakfast everday at Quarry restuarant but the last day was a disaster.

Took 20mins for our coffee to arrive. Then 45mins for our museli to arrive...except we didn't order museli. When we brough this to the attenion of the waitress she looked confused and took it back. Another 10mins and we still hadn't received our original order (porridge). Not sure about anyone else but waiting 55mins for poridge is beyond me.

We walked out and the waitress made us pay for the two coffees. What a joke.

So far, we've told as many people as possible how indifferent the service was as it really was pathetic.

Accomodation great, breakfast...utterly awful.
