Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The last time we stayed in Hobart we made a big mistake by not staying close enough to Hobart centre at an Airbnb, also without a car, plus a complete lack of facilities close by so didn’t want to make the same mistake again, our bad!!
So we booked an Apartment at the Old Woolstore this time around and couldn’t have been been happier.
The Apartment was excellent and we had zero problems with their WiFi including the fact that they changed password for security reasons as a matter of principle which we agree with completely.
The guys at Reception were great and the Rooms clean, functional with good TV although we were so busy we couldn’t take as much advantage of it we might have liked!
The cleaning staff were amazing too, who don’t get enough credit for the great work they perform.
Although not elderly, or infirm, the Bath could do with a grab rail for older people as we could imagine it might be challenging to get out of the bath without this without slipping.
Or having added grip on bottom on bath itself.
There was complimentary Coffee but not that great tasting but some might enjoy it.
The Breakfast area didn’t look that inviting with limited flexibility regarding options so we went out to a few fabulous local restaurants which were first class.
We took advantage, at a cost, of parking which was great although it can get very busy later in the day but we always managed to find a slot.
Overall we found the Old Woolstore a really good place to stay with everything walkable and plenty of choice.
The acid test is we would go back again!

The Old Woolstore is a standard 4 star hotel. I stayed in a studio room that was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom had a walk in shower and also included a washing machine and drier. The layout was great with plenty of storage. The bedroom had a kingsize bed which was very comfortable, a small couch and a small dining table and chairs. My only complaint would be that there was only one bath towel. I presume this is because I booked in as a single person. However, every woman needs two towels. As I was only staying for one night I didn't request a second towel, but I'm should it would have been provided if I had asked. Two towels per person should be standard inclusion.
The buffet breakfast included a reasonably good selection of hot and cold breakfast foods, but only two bread products. An evening restaurant operates, but I did not use this. The room service menu finishes at 9.30 pm, and includes a varied selection of well priced dishes.
Reception service was pleasant at all times.
My room was on the 9th floor, but I didn't have a great outlook. I am not sure if any rooms would have water views, hence, if this is important one should check this out before booking .
The hotel location is great, within easy walking distance of the city centre, Salamanca and the many beautiful waterfront restaurants.
The hotel is very easy to access if arriving by car.

We stayed one night at the property and found the location convenient with available car parking for $10 per night.
The two bedroom loft apartment was spacious.
Staff at dinner was friendly and courteous. The food was decent.

We loved staying here with our two children aged 10 and 14. We had a two bedroom apartment on the third floor and it was extremely clean, spacious and the beds comfortable, which I’m usually very fussy about. The location is within walking distance to the waterfront which has some really lovely quirky boat type eateries. I would definitely stay here at again.

Good location, very clean room and nice and quiet. Room service meal was prepared nicely, bit expensive for fish and chips but having it delivered was a bonus. Only thing I would like to have had is a clock in the room. Will become a favourite when in Hobart for work.

Reasonably priced and well equipped apartments in good location close to town and Hobart’s waterfront. The apartments are spacious, decked out with a kitchenette, bathroom, laundry and during my stay were exceptionally quiet . Recommended for a short stay visit to beautiful Hobart.

If you would like to pay luxury pricing for a motel, this is the place for you. An unimaginative make over of an old warehouse delivers uninspiring basic accommodations. We visited during the holiday season, when prices were at their peak. We stayed in a single room and in an apartment. The basic room had a sticky thin carpet, which required us to keep our shoes on, and we ended up having to switch rooms. The new room was only modestly better. The one-bedroom apartment was a relatively better deal, with much more space, including a kitchen and washer/dryer. I would not recommend staying at this motel.

We stayed for 4 nights in a 2 bed apartment with our teenage daughters and it was spot on for what we needed. Checkin and parking is easy and convenient, and meal, bar and room service options shouldn’t disappoint. The location is fantastic, with quick walking to all the harbour dining and bars, and in the opposite direction into the CBD. The apartment was modern and large, though the second ‘bedroom’ on the mezz floor had two single beds but no wardrobe or storage for cloths.
One caution... Our 2 bed apartment was actually one master bedroom (two single beds joined together) and a mezzanine floor with two single beds (overlooking the lounge with no sound protection). The only TV is in the lounge too. I mention this as it suited us well because our teenagers stay up later than we do, but if you had younger kids you might want to switch the kids to the bedroom so they can go to bed before you, especially if you want to watch TV. While it was fine for us, this isn’t what I expected from a room described as two bedroom (particularly with the lack of storage I’m not sure how this can be called a true two bedroom).

We stayed in room 903 - this gave us a small Juliet balcony and as I'd requested a "view" if possible, we did manage to get views of the water. Reception staff and housekeeping staff were very pleasant and our room was serviced daily and sheets changed regularly, along with fresh towels and supplies each day. The apartment was exceptionally clean which was very pleasing with the current Covid situation. Would definitely stay here again. Traffic noise was the only negative, as our apartment was on the Macquarie Street side, which is a very busy Street. Thankfully, room 903 is on a higher floor, so less road noise than lower floors.
