We recently stayed here for 3 nights whilst exploring Hobart. I gave it 3 stars because it was just that - average. Pros of the room were: - It was huge. We had a spa suite so had a large room with big bathroom, spa, living area and separate kitchen - It was super clean and was cleaned each day...

We booked a family room with 5 people for about half a week. The staff was always very friendly and helped however they could. We always had sufficient towels, and they even provided coffee and cookies. They even provided us with cooking oil and salt after having forgotten to buy it. The appartment is old fashioned, classical style, but there...

5 mins from Hobart CBD (10 mins downhill walk - need to be good mobility-wise as pretty steep in parts), ideal for a place in town during the 'silly season'. Rooms are a little old fashioned/dated, but with that comes size and character. We will come again.

Had room 17 with two beds. My observations: 1. Clean with lots of very hot water (be careful) 2. Looks like grandma’s guest room with extra pieces of furniture, dark carpet and drapes (which cover the radiator. 3. Helpful and informative staff. 4. “Free WIFI” was less than 1 week old and weak/unreliable in room 17. Owner brushed it off...

This is an unusual motel with interesting old decor. The staff are pleasant and the room facilities generally worked as expected. Location is not ideal for those travelling about town on foot as the roads around the motel are very steep. There isn't much to see or do in the immediate vicinity, however several places will deliver food. My room...

My husband and I stay at the Mayfair for 4 nights and our room was very clean and plenty of space. We didn't arrive till around 11pm and our key was left in a security box by the reception door. We were on the first floor and the views into Hobart were stunning and the walk down to there was...

Booked a room for two but got ugraded to the spa suite; comfortable, clean and well appointed. As the hotel is built on a hill 2/3 of the rooms are upstairs and the free car park is a challenge for longer vehicles. None-the-less a pleasant stay with friendly, helpul staff.

I'm afraid this place didn't live up to expectations. We are happy to stay almost anywhere as long as it is clean, but the room we were given had the worst smell of any accommodation we have stayed in. The smoke/ stale beer smell was overpowering, and even though it was quite cool had to leave the doors and windows...

The hotel has a colonial look charm. Location however, isn't very near to the town centre - around 1km walk or more. I booked Bowen Room A. It came with a confirmed carpark lot allocated. This room is on the ground floor so there's no worries about bringing luggages up the stairs. The room looks oldish and so has it's...
