Great central location!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Sept 2023via mobile
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 😊

Great hotel in Hobart . Nice quiet room with a small bar fridge . Was a small walk to market and restaurants . Carpark is a bit of a nightmare , was always full . Comfortable bed and nice shower. Room had a small wardrobe and shutters on the windows to make it nice and dark

My husband and I stayed in a 1 bedroom Deluxe Harbour View Apartment for 4 nights in May and are so glad we chose RACV Hobart. Our corner apartment was on the top floor, or Premium level, with stunning 180 degree views over the harbour and around to Kunanyi (Mt Wellington). Inside was spacious, warm & comfortable, while the balcony was simply massive with an outdoor lounge and enough space for a large gathering. Staff were fantastic and so helpful. We had room-service pizzas on our 1st night (huge & delicious) well-priced and extensive buffet breakfast 2 mornings, and drinks in the beautiful lobby bar 2 evenings during happy hour. The location is great, close to the harbour, shops and restaurants. Would highly recommend this hotel!

Here for work. We arrived a few hours earlier and completed the pre check in and advised the rooms were not ready. Which we were expecting, however the staff member that attended to us said they would send us a text once the room was available.
Knowing this we headed to the bar/lounge area and worked there until 2pm to which I headed back to the reception to then have the same staff member in a joking manner say to me that it was funny that straight after you pre checked in the rooms became available. No text message was sent to either myself or my colleague.
I don’t think I would be feeling disappointed by the service if there was an apology of some sort. I frequently stay at the Torquay RACV and the staff are exceptional there. Experience on this trip has been disappointing as it has not lived to the usual RACV standards.
The room is somewhat dated. There are no refreshments in the mini fridge to purchase, unlike other establishments.
If you are here for work, the desk is crammed against the wall and bed leaving little room for you to move the chair. If you are a larger person, this is just not practical at all! See photo.

Room tip: If you are here for work and require use of the desk etc it’s not a great set up at all.

The rooms are very tired which is a shame considering the main areas of the hotel are fairly modern.

I was disappointed that we specifically asked for the room to be made up for the kids, requesting on the booking for the sofa bed to be made in advance. This not only wasn’t done, but they didn’t leave us any sheets or pillows for us to be able to do it ourselves, nor were there enough towels for everyone.

The actual make up of the room though is a good setup and offered a good level of privacy for the parents and kids alike.

Location is good.

Breakfast had something for everyone, but not lactose free milk :(

Third stay at this excellent hotel. Excellent location opposite the best book store in central Hobart. The double room was excellent with all the requirements including king bed, balcony, a safe, fridge, easy chairs. Bathroom had a walk in shower and magnifying mirror at the right height. Only drawback are the stained chairs and floor. Every room stayed in so far has had this drawback. It is time some of the furniture was reupholstered. Unfortunately one night's sleep was destroyed by cars racing past the hotel for several hours. The night guard/reception should have reported this to the authorities. Guests should not have to call the police to get a good night's sleep.

Thank you for sharing your post, the team really appreciate such positive feedback from our members and guests. We have been working hard to upgrade our facilities and we’re pleased to say our next project is room furnishings. Rest assured we are working very closely with the authorities to ensure the impact of patron’s noise from the night club is eliminated. We look forward to welcoming you back to Hobart!
