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.

Excellent modern hotel near the town centre, within easy walking distance from the town centre. It is a welcoming and spacious modern hotel, and a good addition to the limited options in Hobart. Rooms are of good size, comfortable beds, reliable wifi and most come with balconies. Its family room is a one-bedroom suite essentially and the space is much appreciated for my family. The hotel also has a well-maintained pay-to-use laundry room, and ample space to hang out for guests it never feels busy. The room rate was fair where Hobart has become too expensive.

I didn't give it a full star as we felt while the front desk was fairly helpful, it was rather impersonal and comes across as rather transactional. Eg. we booked our own trip as they simply directed us to tourist brochures and could have further helped. Also, our family room was good but we know could have been better, because other family rooms are larger while our room didn't have a balcony because of the dusty roof outside outside our window.

This said, with the right price-quality I would love to stay here again if we revisit Hobart.

We spent a night at the hotel, prior to starting the exploration of Tasmania.

We checked in at apx. 10PM and were allocated with room 328.

This was a regular room with twin beds, a big HD TV, a small balcony with a view to a parking lot, a minibar, but no safe.
The entire room was probably decorated back in the 1980's, as it felt very old and not updated.
The bathroom was small with a sink, toilet, a bath tub (with a curtain) and toiletries from Kudos Spa.
Our top tier welcome gift was a bottle of water, 2 sweets and a drink coupon from the bar.
There was a 4 cm gap between the door and the floor, so that meant light from the corridor entered the room throughout the night.

Bottom line - this is a very simple 3-star hotel, which is a good choice if you have to spend the night in Hobart.

We stayed for 4 nights in a family suite. Having previously stayed in the hotel in 2007 when it was the Mercure and were pleased to see it had been updated. The rooms decor was tidy and size was excellent but the bathroom very small which was hard work with little kids. The buffet breakfast was excellent value as we did have 4 kids under 12 so they ate free. Room service was good value, very large meals at a reasonable price. Most of the staff were very friendly. The hotel is centrally located with a short walk to most central Hobart sites.
I would definitely recommend the hotel to families.

We stayed for 3 nights and found the room to be quite comfortable but the lobby/lift area carpets were in poor condition and lifting. Staff were friendly and breakfast was as expected for this level of hotel. The location was very handy to all city centre and waterfront so this suited us well with on street car parking for our rental car.
Overall a nice place to stay but probably needs a bit of an upgrade due to showing signs of wear and tear.

We made a reservation at the beginning of the year with Best Western for our family holiday and to celebrate my husbands 50th. There was no indication at the time of booking that the hotel was to become a COVID 19 quarantine hotel. Knowingly, Best Western staff knew (as told by reception staff) that these bookings were never going to be honoured. Bookings were taken regardless and we booked in good faith. Recently, we received an email to say our reservation has been cancelled. We are now left with difficulties on trying to find a hotel at the last minute, as Hobart is booked out for the new year period and the only other choice is to pay $2500 for 4 night stays elsewhere. Clearly, Best Western has chosen government money over customers! Interestingly enough, you can still book stays in the New year period- I hope future customers know these may never be honoured!

Our family group of three stayed for two nights in January 2020. We had a family suite with one king bed and two single beds. Space was therefore generous. The hotel is somewhat tired with wear and tear over the years, however, everything was clean. Beware that this hotel is on the corner of Bathurst and Harrington Streets, which is in the retail area of Hobart. It is not in the waterfront area of the City. A car is desirable for getting around and there is an underground car park with daily charge for hotel guests of $10. Staff friendly and helpful.

Stayed here as part of a tour group: Trade Travel. Guest laundry good: need 3x$1 coins to operate washing machine; didn’t use the dryer but I think it’s also $3.00
Bathroom upgraded but shower screen does not stop water pooling on the floor so despite a grab rail, it’s a trip hazard. Thin towels, nowhere to hang hand towel or face washer and small room. Lumpy pillows. Room furniture needs replacing; old and not very comfortable. Clean. No biscuits with limited tea/coffee choices (seems to have become standard practice?)
Food was just acceptable even though it was pre-ordered with Trade Travel 2.5 weeks in advance: pre-ordering meals is a Trade Travel policy that regrettably, happened with most main meals. The food was mostly tasteless and there were no vegetables or salad; maybe part of the package we were on? Breakfast pretty standard fare; nothing exciting. Helpful staff at breakfast and very extroverted helpful waiter/bar attendant in the evening. Comfortable and quiet area to sit and relax adjacent to dining room/bar
It was an OK place to stay if you are on a tight budget, but I'm sure there are better places elsewhere; I'd rate it a 3 star.

This hotel is fantastic. Beds are comfortable & rooms are always clean. The housekeeping staff are excellent & the Embers restaurant always have a delicious offering for their buffet breakfasts. The location on Bathurst st is wonderful with a short walk to Liverpool where the city shops are located. The view from both sides is stunning and staff are quite aimiable just as most Tasmanians are! Worth a visit to this hotel and it’s stunning city

We stayed here for three nights. Found the hotel clean and presentable, staff were friendly. Its centrally located and an easy walk into the CBD, Salamanca & the Wharf.
The room was spacious, clean and serviced daily, only downside would be that it wasn't very soundproof to the outside street noise (we were on the third floor). Undercover paid parking on site is available at a cost of $15 per day.

Do not pay for parking, you dont need to, the gate is always open and you will not find parking spots available. Everyone park there without paying.
We found a couple of items in the room that didn’t below to use, so the rooms are not cleaned properly.
