Hotel is close to everything. We stayed on a Thursday night. Rooms clean and bright. We had a room overlooking the river. The staff where all friendly and helpful. The receptionist was very welcoming and made you feel like you where a long lost friend. I would recommend this hotel. May be a bit noisy on the Weekend. Thursday night...

For the price we found this accomodation totally comfortable and very clean. It had a huge bathroom with superlarge walk in shower and the whole room was spacious and modern. The resturant served delicious pancakes, maple syrup, cream and strawberry for breakfast amongst all the other options and dinner was super with the freshest of seafood. A very pleasant stay...

Stayed here at the beginning and the end of an 8 day trip with my husband. The rooms facing the waterfront that we stayed in - Rm. 8 and Rm. 24 - were recently updated, roomy and had clean, designer bathrooms. The gal at the front desk was helpful and went beyond the call with a parking issue that we...

Mixed party dined here and dinner was good pub fare with attentive and friendly staff. Location is near most tourist attractions and city night life. Seaford basket was good as were steaks cooked to order.

Enjoyed a dinner here mid week. Standard food, but well done. Seafood basket and a chicken Palma were up to standard. Atmosphere was good, with brisk service. Roadworks outside venue make access a bit of a hassle, but it's fine on foot.

I was walking along the waterfront and found this little bar which also has an adjoining restaurant. Decided on a pint of Cascade Draught and sat at the bar itself with several other patrons. Noisy but a good vibe. They have a bar menu which is reasonable both in terms of price and range but I have other plans for...

We stayed in the 1st floor, and the walls are paper thin. Could hear everything that was happening in the hallway, especially as the door which went downstairs was straight opposite our room 3. beds were comfy, clean room but very small. roadworks outside woke us up early in the morning with drilling and concrete cutting. Aircon was good and...

Great Location to visit local tourist spots on foot (Salamanca Markets and Market place). We did use the Thrifty car to visit Port Arthur and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Good room, a little dated and the bathroom towels were a little thread bare.It did take them three days to replace a faulty light globe but then it was the weekend....

Sorry to have to mark this great pub down for something almost completely out of their control. Directly across from the waterfront, on a warm spring night, until 4am in the morning the shrieking, probably drunk, revellers in the streets and parks kept me awake until just before dawn. No police or other official presence was apparent. Hobart is let...
