    This is my second stay at this hotel. The first time we were completely won over by the food. This year the food was good, but not great. The north facing rooms offer nice views of the river and ferry and beautiful warm morning sun...More

    Great pub overlooking the port of Devonport with plenty of action on the river with the Ferries both big and small and other water craft moving about. Situated in the centre of Devonport City great for shopping.

    Lovely atmosphere, great food, great prices, great staff. Quick friendly service. We were just visiting Devonport and stumbled upon this hotel. Situated opposite the Spirit of Tasmania on the Mersey River. Modern but quirky decor. Will definitely visit again.
