We stayed 3 nights , not so enjoyable , i think our room needed a revamp , the bed was comfy , and the staff were very proffessional and polite . We went out for breakfast as not so good , great restaurants and shops nearby and the harbour is spectacular.

Recently stayed for one night foyer and bar, restaurant was great, however rooms seemed a little old, the staff were very helpful, I am a platinum member of the best western chain and that was not felt..I begin to question the reward program, would stay again for a night sleep over but to enjoy stay would be somewhere else sadly

We could only book for one night as Hobart seems to be booked out for the Wooden Boat Festival. The room we were given had a spacious living area which inspired us to get takeaway. We should have asked for some cutlery. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. Apart from a mixup on the rate at checkout, which was...

Staff are friendly and the rooms ok. Needs improvement. The bathrooms had mildew and the breakfast insipid at best. The scrambled eggs were watery and tasteless. We thought they were powdered except for the frequent egg shell fragments. I guess everyone needs extra calcium! Even my 3 year old wouldn't eat them.

A more than adequate hotel with most things you will need. Rooms were fine - clean and big enough. Beds were comfy and room had everything I needed. Bathrooms due for a revamp.

We stayed for 5 nights and straight away the staff were friendly and very helpful. We had a family room which had a second room for the kids. It was clean and the beds are so comfortable.

Very happy with our stay here. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and very helpful, promptly following through with requests. Nice quiet area for a city stay, but within walking distance to shops and Salamanca Place. Buffet breakfast was ok, and great value for money on Sunday.
