We finished out 2 week Tasmania holiday with 2 nights here. The hotel is well situated for easy walking around town and is central for short drives to the sights. Our room was nice. The restaurant was a disappointment. We booked through reception and when we arrived there was no one at the restaurant front desk to greet us. We... More

The other staff we encountered during our stay didn't even acknowledge our existence hellos were ignored. The quality of staff and rooms has diminished since Jan. Showering was haphazard with a shower head that... More

Towels refreshingly large and luxurious after travelling in Europe and only getting small towels. Desk area also more then sufficient to set up laptop and... More

Mystery hotel /wotif hotel is the best western. Look no further. Don't bother. It's under construction at the moment. Looks as if it's about to fall apart with the cords along ceiling tops hanging out and open. Due to construction no/limited television Channels. Safety wise- the entrance from best western customer car park into the hotel is completely open. Don't... More

The lobby and location of this hotel are a little on the seedy side - off the main street and not well lit - but the rooms themselves are clean, comfortable and well equipped and the rates are very reasonable.

Best Western Plus. I don't think so. Paid parking and not even a guaranteed place. Get there late and park somewhere else. Tried room service and ordered ham cheese and tomato toasted sandwich. When the sandwich arrived it was 3 mm thick and only contained ham?... It was however redeemed by a handful of corn chips thrown on top of... More
