Very dated and in need of a paint brush. Furniture looks out of the 80’s. Don’t think the net curtains have ever been changed. Bed was ok and the bathroom was clean and appears fairly recently upgraded. But the bathroom door would not close. As for the rooms entry door, it can only be described as worrying! Makes you feel the hotel is located in gangland. Even if the padlock was necessary, it did not even line up, so you could not use it even if needed!

I have stayed three times now over the last few years.
A very good affordable business hotel within 4 - 5 mins walk of bars, restaurants and CBD.
King room is quite large and mine was on 5th floor with a balcony. Unlimited internet access, large TV, and free parking if a Best Western member.
Hobart in winter is quite cold but a good heating system meant my room was always warm when I returned.

We chose to stay here due to the availability of parking, it is central and the price was competitive. The bathroom was clean, newly renovated. Lots of shops around where to eat so we did not bother getting the breakfast deal. They do have the Ember restaurant if you do not fee like going out. Ample room size. We will choose to stay here again if we come back but we will probably choose a room with a better view. Our room had a window but it is in level with this ledge that was not pleasing to the eyes for sure. Parking was $15 a day but subject to availability. We always got a park when we return after a drive somewhere. On most nights, parking was full.

Very poor quality hotel.Stayed here as part of a travel group. Rooms are tired and dated. My room smelt of dogs, yet when I spoke to reception, they said that they don't allow dogs. However when my room was cleaned the next day, there was a clear smell of cleaning products, in order to mask the smell of dogs. The breakfast was very basic. Would I stay there again - no thanks..!

Little bit dated. Booked through Qantas Hotels and somehow was upgraded. ( No requested room available? do not know.)
Water shower deluge head is great. Plenty of towels washers etc. The body wash and shampoo bottles are squeeze to actuate, sounds simple doesn't it?
Mattress very comfy. Pillow a little firm for me but I did have the choice of 5!
You get a kettle and that's it. Fridge opens one way, cupboard door opens opposite way. Not user friendly. Mis mash of cups. No knife or fork.
Had to book for a couple of nights the next week but was an extra 50 an night. Thought that was a bit unnecessary for a returning client booking the same room.
We had two windy nights and the sliding door widows rattling was enough to keep you awake. Need to be wedged.

Location to town. Excellent, walking distance.

Stayed here for several nights. Staff were friendly, and the place was clean.
But it is old and average. The rooms have had some renovations, but they have missed the mark. They should have placed double glazing on the windows to reduce the road and other noise. It is quite bad. They have a light timer in the bathroom which is set to 10 seconds. A bit difficult to keep moving around if you are trying to direct your stream into the bowl.
It is 600 MTRS from the centre of town and while that is not far, there are other better choices closer.
