    We loved the friendly staff from the front desk to the girls who cleaned the room, the view from our room was amazing and it was great value for money.

    There was just one thing that was annoying, all of the staff were amazing but one man on the front desk while we were there was, well maybe not a people person, there were 3 of us in our room and we all commented on different times when we came in or out of the hotel he simply looked through us, it was especially noticeable when all of the other staff were so friendly.

    Superb

    The location,and the accomodations, (washer, dryer, kitchen).

    I thought we had a balcany, for the price it would have been nice.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    The location and the friendly staff. Also the fact that we could cook our own meals. It was great to get the newspaper each day as it enabled us to see what was 'on' around town.

    Only one very tiny dislike - the bedroom as upstairs and the bathroom was downstairs making night visits to the bathroom a bit tricky in the dark.

    Fabulous

    The position is close to all attractions and having 2 bathrooms was excellent. The beds were comfy and rooms were clean. The staff were helpfull and even booked us a hire car and returned it for us. Heating was efficient and good views of Mt Wellngton. Oveall a excellent place to stay

    Noises can be heard from adjoining room

    The location, on the pier, was beautiful, especially waking up to wonderful reflections on still water, looking towards Mount Wellington. As an artist, this was very inspiring. With the problems associated with the Chilean volcanic dust, and the heavy fog over Melbourne, we had decisions to make about trying to return to Melbourne. The staff could not have been more patient and helpful, and we were extremely grateful for their contact with us, and offers to use their facilities to gain further updates on the situation. These ladies at the desk, on Sunday 12th June, were superb, and were a great credit to your organisation. We left there feeling very positive about returning in the future.

    Fantastic location right on the pier. Close to city, markets, restaurants etc. The rooms were new, modern and comfortable with lots of room and great views. This is the place to stay at in Heart.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location actualy on the pier in Hobart. Duplex room with mni kitchen. Close to Hobarts main attractions and nightlife.our room was one of two that came with a washing machine!

    Fabulous

    Proximity to the water, restaurants and central Hobart. Privacy and convenience of having parking, laundry facilities and restaurants.

    The noise through the adjoining door was of concern for a while but was resolved. Unfortunately when seated the view of the boats and water was lost and was quite disappointing as the information about the hotel does not make the allocation of a balcony clear. The ventilation in the hotel was not adequate for warm weather.

    Very good

    The location - so close to many beaut restaurants and the view over Constitution Dock was stunning. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful when we asked to be upgraded to a room with a balcony so we could enjoy this spectacular view.

    At the room rate ($AU300 per night) we expected a higher level of inclusions, for example more than 1 bar of soap and tube of shampoo and only 1 towel per person for the 4 nights we stayed.

    The location was amazing and our room was very comfortable. It was everything we wanted and needed in a weekend spot.

    We were a bit disappointed that we didn't have a balcony but other wise our room was fantastic.

    Very good

    The hotels proximity to the Hobart city and water.

    The air conditioning doesnt reach the loft bedroom and it was quite hot and uncomfortable.

    Superb

    Location, modern, convenience, cleanliness, view, staff.

    Lack of an option of an upgrade on arrival. Would have liked a balcony room. No Biscuits and bottled water available for drinking. Price of airport transfer.

    Good

    Good location for fresh seefood and close to local tour gathering point and Tourist Information Centre.

    Can't give me a room with balcony though I booked it a month in advance.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    The location was brilliant only spoiled by the lack of parking spaces

    The heating system was very loud and we could not sleep with it on, the same with the clothes drier which we had to use after washing some clothes soiled when my wife fell over in a park area
