Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Rooms were well equipped and housekeeping very good. The conference room and catering were generally good. Only issue we found was noise on weekend nights from nearby night club.

Ill be honest it seemed a little outdated BUT, we received a room upgrade on arrival, they were clean and had everything we required and we were pleasantly surprised given our first impressions. The hotel cleaning staff are just beautiful, friendly people and do a wonderful job. Front of house could easily recommend local attractions and were readily available at...

Payed for what we thought would be a good deal ($570 for 2 nights). Our room was the last one available and discounted. We were on the First floor with a view of the old Birchalls building. Very noisy. Constant sounds of doors slamming and noise from the street. The toilet seat didn't stay up. Fridge was tucked away in...

Evacuated due to fire in kitchen just after arrival. Had to stand outside in drizzling rain. Given that it was the second fire evacuation in three days it appeared there were still huge gaps in emergency procedures. Whilst some guests stood in rain and were denied access others stood cheering fairies from there balconies. Guest directory stated that the entire...

Best Western is centrally located in Hobart. The hotel is not that new but it has a certain charm . Rooms are quite spa ious. We got 2 connecting rooms one with 3 Singles and another room with a big king sized bed. The only drawback here is we had to share one toilet and bath. It had a nice...

Located just up the hill (5-10 min walk) from the waterfront this place is in a decent location - the Sunday breakfast & produce market 1 block away is excellent. The building looks very dated on the outside, inside is slightly better, the hallways are a bit dank & gloomy but the rooms were good with fresh carpet & paint,...

They have cleared out my bank account of almost $500 over the weekend leaving me in financial hardship. I called the hotel and cancelled a booking due to illness yet they are calling me a liar and charged me a no Show fee. Their policy states the first night is charged yet they took it upon themselves to take 3...

Dear Sharon J, We would like to correct a few of the comments in your review. You booked a 3 night stay via Wotif.com. We never received a cancellation from that website so the booking was held for you. We did charge for the 3 nights but when we learned that you would not be visiting us at all we...
