Stayed here in July and September, both times excellent. Staff are friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Free WiFi, cheap mini bar, breakfast good, evening meal good for the price. Parking can be tight, first in first parked. It is situated on a roundabout, traffic wasn't heard while the tv was on. I wore earplugs for sleeping just in case....

Had a great stay there, staff went beyond their needs to accommodate for us, restaurant is adequate but Hobart has way to many places to eat out you would never stay in. This is where I will always go from now on, I see why the awards are on the walls. :)

The second time I've stayed at this hotel and and it impressed yet again. I arrived not much after 10:00AM after driving from the ferry in Devonport. The staff at reception went out of their way to get me into a room that housekeeping had completed. Breakfast and dinners in the restaraunt were great value and plentiful and all staff...

Stayed just one night on our way to visiting relatives. Couldn't fault it and wonder why anyone would pay nearly twice the price for the same type of facility? Had everything you would need and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else now when we visit again.

Situated right on a roundabout, on the way into Hobart, you either might be tempted to miss this, or might even inadvertently miss the entrance to this hotel/motel. Keep trying, it is excellent value for money and, once you get the hang of it, central to just about everything. This hotel offers clean, cheerful service with a great breakfast to...

Had the oportunity to stay in both Double Room & Studio Apartment during our Hobart stay. Spacious, clean & well maintained. The Studio Apartment has a double bed & 2 single beds in addition to a full kitchen. Good location and only a short walking distance to Franklin Wharf & Salamanca Market. Friendly & helpful staff. Free Wifi available. Recommended.

This hotel is clean, the staff was nice and it's a fine place to stay the night. If flying into the Hobart airport, I recommend the shuttle, as the taxi fare was quite expensive. The absolute best thing about this hotel was the mini-bar. I am certain that I have never said that about a hotel before. It was totally...

We stayed for 1 night with 2 adults 2 children under 18yrs. We were on level 6 (cnr room). We did not here the traffic noise as others have mentioned. I did however here the elevator during the night. That is my only negative. We were not in Hobart to spend time in our hotel so the location was paramount...

I had a room on the first floor, and it was a little noisy early morning and late afternoon. It was not enough to disturb me, though. Handy location to the city. Restaurant provided lovely basic dinner. I would definitely stay here again.
