* Reception staff are not too friendly, but are professional. Unfortunately, they don't go out of their way to help though. * The cleaning staff did not complete making up one bed one of the days, and did not replace the amenities. Maybe they are advised not to replenish them. One day later, we had specifically requested the staff to replace amenities, but they still weren't completely replaced. Maybe it was just an oversight by the staff.
There were 3 of us in the room and it was quite comfortable and exceptionally clean hotel which is important to me. It's not close to Hobart city centre; however, there is a bus stop right in front of the hotel. It's located in a safe niieghborhood should you chosr to walk. An added plus: ir has a small indoor pool, hot tub and fully equipped gym.
I have been staying in this hotel for the last 4 months every week, and slowly Ive seen the price increasing, could be supply and demand, but it's obvious their system does not allow to identify loyal customers.
I come every week and they have learned what are my needs and make check in and check out a quick and pleasant process.
Had a really hospitable person assisting me with checking in. Perfectly located and near the University.
We enjoyed our stay. It was convenient for travel plans south of Hobart.
The only downside about this room was that the advertised wifi did not work in the room. We did get Internet access in the mezzanine lounge area. The hotel restaurants were fine, but quite dear (pricey). This is a classy place with adequate and helpful staff.
The hotel was excellent in all ways. Only drawback was lack of wifi in the rooms, but wifi was available on the mezzanine.
The view of the harbor is fantastic. The staff is great and the rooms. It is a bit of a walk to the center of town.
