Budget accommodation but meets all needs. Great bars & food, new manager is making a move and enticing new clientele. Great place for blokes (or girls) weekends. Check out the events, Friday's was "toss the boss", we won * free pots on one shout! The TAH is ACE!

First and foremost and in all fairness, this is not a "hotel" as advertised. We were so stupid not to book rooms in Hobart in advance after touring the Grand Circle of Tasmania for 11 days. After a tiring 250 km (5 hours) drive from Strahan (West Coast), we arrived at Hobart at 5pm only to find out there is...

Staff was friendly and attempted to...

Popped in here for the first time for a meal and we were stunned to see the joint nearly empty. And that meant a bit of a dull atmosphere. The decor is great in the beer garden, but the dining area - not so much. Food was good, though, and served fast thanks to the lack of patrons. Perhaps it's...

This is a combined backpackers, private rooms and pub. There is a function area downstairs, which is also a restaurant, along with a front bar and a back area for bands. We had a private double room with ensuite. The interior and furnishings are dated, but the room came with a comfy bed and a TV. There was also a...

I've been a regular of the Waratah for about 4 years and in the last 18 months the food quality has descended to dangerously bad. This place used to have great meals at fantastic prices, i have given them chance after chance in the hope that the food would improve back to the standards of early 2015 and before but...

This is an average cheap hotel, (However I felt it is overpriced) it was clean, but very very old, facilities and everything, the walls are a bit thin but nothing to much to be worry about.
