Stayed three nights on Accor staff rates ( had been booked before the changeover to Best Western - but honoured by them ) - so could not complain about the price. Staff were all very friendly. Room had been superficially renovated , but suprised to see there was no airconditioning & the bathroom needs an exhaust fan. Room was serviced... More

We spent one night here, and were greeted by very friendly helpful staff. Our room was pleasant. Walking distance to the City Centre and Salamanca markets. One thing that was disappointing was we had to pay for parking in the hotel. Would have been nice if guests didn't have to pay. Parking is very limited on the streets and only... More

sbm1, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN Hobart, responded to this review

Dear kimejen, I am so pleased that found us to be a good, central base for your Hobart visit. We do charge for parking (as most CBD hotels do) but I think our rate of $10 a day represents good value for money given the location. Hoping to see you again in the future.

The hotel looks as though it has had a good make-over since changing owners earlier in 2013. All the staff were friendly and helpful - maybe Tasmanians are like that. The room was spacious and well equipped, though no exhaust fan in the bathroom. Food in the dining room was fine, and the wines were fresh and enjoyable. Towels and... More
