Reviewed 30 August 2016

Nice old pub with plenty of parking and a nice bar ambience. A couple of blips, but the staff were generally pretty helpful. I'd recommend it anytime, and if you're from Melbourne, you'll get a glimpse of the old fashioned world, before most of Melbourne's was torn down.

Room Tip: Budget rooms only have double beds so if you're travelling with another bloke, beware

We stayed here for a few days. The reception was great and the staff were very helpful when we wanted to change the booking. Great room, very comfortable and reasonably appointed. Food was very good. Overall we felt very welcome for a few days in a very convenient spot.

Grand old hotel in a nice area of Hobart, plenty of of street parking, great place for lunch and or dinner. The food is five star and the staff can't do enough for you, it has nice atmosphere and in winter they have a fire burning to make cosy and warm.

My hubby and I come here every 6-12 months for a special date night without our children. We always order the herb and garlic bread and a scotch and porterhouse medium rare with the reef and beef curry sauce. Normally the steaks are cooked perfect and the sauce is a beautiful creamy curry sauce with fresh prawns and scallops.

Tonight for the pub loaf we received margarine textured 'garlic butter' minus the garlic. Horrible.

Then 30minutes later we received fatty bad quality steaks with watery tasteless sauce topped with frozen prawns. We asked for more sauce and received a small jug to share of white tastelss slop.

When we enquired with the waitress we were informed it changed owners 8 months ago. We ate our chips and walked out and went to Mures instead.

Don't waste your money here. 5 star has become 0 star.

This restaurant was an all round awesome experience! From the server and bar staff being super friendly and accommodating to the chef creating a complementing concoction of flavours into the perfect meal! I highly recommend that anyone who visits Hobart eats at Shippy's!
