We booked two nights in April. We could smell the room before the door was fully open! Body smells, dirty smells, old stained carpet smells! The furniture was ancient, worn and not clean looking. The bed cover had holes and looked like a dog blanket. It felt like a marshmallow and I didnt dare look at the mattress to check if it was clean. The carpet was badly stained all over and the bathroom needed renovating 20 years ago. We felt awkward but couldnt stay there so chatted pleasantly with reception who admitted the room did small and they had another rom with a new carpet and new mattress. The new room did not smell as bad but the carpet was stained worse than the first. The bathroom was ancient and melamine pealing and missing in parts. We simple couldnt bring ourselves to stay there and asked for a refund [eve if just for one night]. We did not get a refund and the owner stobbornly kept referring us to Booking.com for our problem. They emailed her that night and she never replied to them. Reading reviews later I saw that at some time the place was used as a brothel, maybe that explains the copious stains. We ended up paying 2 nights accomodation and booked elsewhere. I telephones the owner and asked why she didnt reply to booking.com so we could get a refund, suddenly her english wasnt as good as it was when we met!! She didnt offer anything. I suggested she use our money to buy a new bedspread! My only regret was that I was so shocked by the state of the room I forgot to take pictures to share with you.…
Such great value here. The standard motel rooms are much cheaper than similar ones near the bay and it has a mountain view. The buildings are oozing with character but have been upgraded inside where needed. It has beautiful block out curtains, an art deco bathroom and lovely artwork inside. The beds were comfy enough, water pressure good, we had a decent microwave and the fridge was stocked with a jar of milk for us. Only issue is that it is on a hill- the walk up is strenous. If you have a hire car or are getting dropped off it doesn't matter.
Reception........ Sarah was lovely and helpful and just so welcoming Room.................. Wow, floor was heated, beds were warm and comfy and the the decor was just so unique. We had all the mod cons, microwave, toaster etc. Bathroom was so clean with a heater, Shower was superb. Area.... You need a car to get around Would we stay here again?........Definitely, The best place
Good amenities but overpriced and did not provide basics . Coffee machine did not work and supplies such as tea sugar and spreads for toast not there Avoid this overpriced room. We were told though expensive while rooms in Hobart were short the facilities were good. The room was not serviced well with supplies at a cost of tree hundred and fifty dollars No way was it worth that. or serviced accordingly.
This converted manor is a charm. Judy and Sarah give polite efficient modernity to a motel with a lovely old time feel. There is luxurious underfloor heating and sumptuous heavy velvet blackout curtains. The main house is history materialized with a hugely beautiful apartment honeymoon apartment and lovely baths. A twist is the availability of old time movies at the front desk. I watched shirley temple james bond and mickey rooney. All a close walk to town Thankyou
The place is quite and the room large and relatively well equipped. The decor is kitsch (false Victorian paintings and chandeliers included!) which is kind of funny. it is on the verge of disrepair - door handle stayed in my hand and I had to put it back, the vent in the bathroom made such a screech I had to turn it off, taps loose etc.) but what bothered me was the service and attitude. I understand you are worried about Corona and don't want to hand people keys, ok, but not to clean rooms help you with Corona? this is just lazy. Also, finding a previous occupant socks, underwear and worse in Corona times - handkerchief in the top drawer means the place was not properly cleaned even before I arrived. Sorry, not good enough. Note it is at the top of a very steep hill, no problem if you are able bodied (but certainly does not encourage frequent forages into town, 20 minute walk away), but there is a bus that gets very near…
Room was advertised as a triple self contained. No plates or bowls were provided. Microwave was so small that the plate eventually supplied did not fit. Fridge was too small and inadequate. There was no plug for the bathroom sink. Exhaust fan in the bathroom was hanging out of the window pane. Carpet was dirty and stained. Wallpaper was peeling from the walls. An oddly placed picture on the wall concealed a hole. Seating was an old hard backed chair and one very low arm chair. There was no table so one could sit and have a meal. Each time the television was turned on the antenna cord had to be gently wiggled at the rear of the TV and the wall socket to obtain a picture reception. A request was made for the room to be made up each morning. The bed had to be remade twice at it was noticed that the doona had merely been pulled up and flattened out. The room was not dusted during the 5 night stay. The daily re-supply of milk was provided in a recycled glass jar so it was assumed the milk was still in date. The water pressure in the shower was very poor. The shower arm and head at full extension sprayed water onto the middle of this guests chest. Management refused to provide a refund for the final nights accommodation despite being offered an explanation of extenuating circumstances. It is difficult to say anything positive about the Mayfair other than the view of Hobart is lovely. I would not recommend this place.…
We arrived in Hobart and after getting out of the airport, I was called to confirm check in. The room was supposed to be self contained, microwave and fridge isn’t self contained. The room looked clean but old and run down. Staff very rude and we had to argue for a part refund. Do not risk staying here
Colonial decor was a mixture of old and new furniture and carpets need to be ripped up and replaced but generally clean and tidy. Small refillable both bottle of milk in fridge instead of small, thimble sized plastic throw away milk containers. Tick for helping our environment. Close to centre of town and eateries. Could walk to Shamrocks pub for excellent, cheap meals.
We started our trip around Tassie here. The room was fine, the bed comfortable. The bath apparently had a recent makeover so was impeccable but the furniture in the room looked like it had been there since the Victorian age. Nonetheless it was all clean. If you’re planning to eat downtown, this location is up on a steep hill so you may want to consider driving. Wouldn’t mind staying here again but for a few days in Hobart I probably would look for something a bit nicer.
