    We had a lovely stay at this hotel. The staff were very helpful, in fact went out of their way to assist us.The location is superb and it was easy to navigate our way (lots of 1 way streets in Hobart!) with the assistance of the staff. My husband is not well or strong and I had a lot of offered help, even valet parking for which we were not charged. A lovely place to stay and what a view! Very happy holiday.

    There is no lift from the underground carpark.

    The location, and the lovely buffet breakfast. The best breaky in Tasmania.

    The rooms were pretty old, the bathrooms,especialy the showers need to be updated. The noise from the traffic was a bit annoying seeing that we were up a few floors.

    Located beautifully on the waterfront, close to major city attractions. Clean upmarket and well appointed. Staff were friendly and attentive, without being pushy.

  • Group of friends

    The location and view from our room was very good. The shower and bathroom fittings were good quality.

    The A/c in the room was too warm, consequently couldn't sleep. Told staff and they told us it could not be adjusted any lower. Most staff were professional but lacklustre. One front desk person who, when asked about walking tours around Hobart, said he didn't know and then made no offer to find out for us. Poor customer service, I thought.

    The mattress was actually very comfortable unlike most hotels I've stayed at.

    The bath was a bit small but you get what you pay for so no complaints!
