“Good spot with a few limitations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Rooms are good value for money, however it does not suits the standards of real hotels. I stayed in room 8 right above the hotel's restaurant and pub, it can be a bit noisy. No easy accessible plugs in the room. Bathroom fan sounds like a tractor. All the rest is ok for a $135 overnight.

Great 3 nights in a large, clean, comfortable but basic room. Excellent location and great views from the waterfront queen room on the second floor. We were able to walk to most sights and had ready access to tourist facilities. We had expected a bit of noise, but the place was very quiet, even on Uni student night (Wednesday). Really good restaurant and a great breakfast provided each day. Overall a very pleasant stay in a comfortable historic building.

The hotel is in an excellent location within easy walking distance to the harbour, Salamanca market and city centre. Parking is a bit of a problem but on check in the receptionist was helpful. The room was roomy with a large comfortable bed but other facilities were very poor - no hanging space except an extending arm out of the wall with a few odd assorted wire and cheap plastic hangers. This arrangement is only good for shirts, trousers not for dresses. The included one item from the menu for breakfast was excellent although the self service tea and coffee was poor. We stayed 3 nights over a weekend and although the waterfront view looks great during daylight hours the teenage revelling and noise from the nightclub opposite was awful and kept us awake until 5 am on 2 of our 3 nights. I suggest you request a room on the back if staying on a Friday or Saturday night.

Stayed in a Waterfront twin room booked on wotif.com, clean but very basic. No wardrobe, just a peg on the wall and no aircon, just a fan. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Because it is an old building, after getting the lift up to the second floor, we then had stairs to manoeuver with our luggage. Breakfast was ok.

My husband I stayed here for 5 nights in March. We were able to walk to all the sights in Hobart from there. We especially enjoyed the included breakfasts and the dinners were awesome. Best food we had in Hobart. The seafood was superb.
The front desk staff were extremely helpful.

Room Tip: We selected a room in the back of the hotel which was very quiet.
