          Very friendly staff, fair rates and excellent place for few night accommodation.

        • Single
          5.4

          Breakfast

          Noise coming from the air-conditioning units and the compessor for the beer kegs, no heating in room and with a window that needs attention so it would close and prevent the cold draft coming through, it was extremely cold at night. The bed could be upsized from a small single to a king single so your feet don't hang out the bottom.

        • Single
          8.0

          I like the breakfast the most, it is really good.

          The water's temperature for showering is a bit too difficult to adjust, this is kinda a problem especially in winter... except the hotel is a bit old, it is overall good for backpackers to have a stay.

          noisy; dirty; too much pub and not enough hotel

          Awesome staff, made very welcome, excellent location, supurb food offered at breakfast. Best value and location in Hobart!!! it was my favourite stop in all four visits to Tasmania.

        • Older travelers

          The hotel is within walking distance to the city mall, the market, the wharf cafes and restaurants, so we didnt have to worry about finding a car park. The hotel staff were friendly and the continental breakfast was delicious.

          The room we had was next to a laneway which serviced the hotel's 24 hour driveway service and a refrigeration compressor which operated throughout the night. A room in a different part of the hotel would have suited us better.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The breakfast chefs who cooked delicious meals and made us feel welcome...they have now retired I think.....and the young on-duty manager who, after some confusion sorted out our rooms on arrival on Good Friday.

          We would have preferred to be in the newer second floor rooms instead of the older rooms (Rooms 1 and 9) on the first floor which need attention and upgrade sooner than later. The renovations to the ground floor did not give a favourable impression but we understand that renovations have to be done sometimes, especially when ownership changes hands.

        • Older travelers

          The staff were very friendly and very helpful. The room and bedding were very clean- towels were changed daily. The breakfast which was included in the tarrif was excellent.

          The room was a double but should really have been a single - the bed was jammed against 2 walls. The room desperately needed doing up.

          Friendly front desk staff

          Very noisy drunken guests in other rooms.

        • Group of friends

          clean and tidy. very helpful staff. wonderful breakfast and dinner. good price.

          Was in the process of revamping the dining room. Will be much better when completed.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Its convenience to the city. I thought the idea of tea-making facilities in a separate room on each floor was good, just as convenient as in the rooms themselves.The breakfast too was good; I've seen better layouts but the standard of the food was good and it was well cooked.

          The 24-hour bottle store beneath our room. Surprisingly, people came and went throughout the night, and at 5am there was some disgusting language drifting up to our room from the bottle store.

        • Single
          5.8

          Easy parking and short walk to city.

          Noisy area - lot of loud people in the street late at night.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Hotel staff are quite friendly, especially the two senior staff serving the breakfast, gave us a lot of information on trips and tours. Hotel is located right in the centre of Hobart, a bit noisy at night when people go back from their trips and bang the old doors according to my partner, but i didn't hear a thing and had a good sleep. It's really value for money for budget travellers or someone just look for a short stay for a night like us, with hot breakfast included.

          old building, a bit noisy, but all reasonable and couldn't complain for this price

          Great breakfast and very pleasant staff.

          It is an unpretentious pub with little character but it is quiet and functioned well as a base for a short stay in Hobart.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          was improvement on previous hotel in Launceston. Hotel operation was likely hampered by renovations. Helpfull staff, location to centre /harbour was within walking distance.
