Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

Stayed at waratah hotel for 2 nights.
Great location and service. The hotel staff was very helpful in assisting us to get to our destination. As we reached the hotel very early and our room was not ready yet, the staff offered to store our luggage in the cupboard so that we explore the area while waiting for room.
There is no lift in the hotel so if you are carrying huge luggage, you might have a little struggle in carrying the luggages up the stairs.

Everything you could ask for in a budget hotel and more! Clean, comfortable (if a bit dated) room, friendly and helpful staff, great meals, 24 hour bottleshop, wide variety of entertainment. 5 minutes walk to the city and the airport shuttle bus drops off and picks up right outside the front door. Will definitely stay here again.

Wow we had the best meal with friends here. My Seafood selection was amazing and I cant wait to go back and order it again! Prawns,3 scallops, 2-3 pieces of white fish all in a light batter, topped with the most tender salt n pepper calamari I have ever had! Served with a very nice fresh salad and the best chips! The others had steak with veg or salad and they were very happy too! Cooked to perfection! The only problem was, "I couldn't fit in a desert and they sounded amazing too!"

Brendan and his staff are competent, friendly and helpful. I stayed twice in room 3 of this solid, well equipped and well situated hotel, only a short walk from the city-centre. As a customer you are taken seriously there and treated like a mate. The quality of the bar food and of the breakfast is excellent. The quiz-night was real fun. What you get for your money there is excellent!

Room Tip: It occured to me in one of three nights that I woke up in the middle of the night by a truck that ro...

Was pleased with this hotel with its big 4 bed family room for $190 on a Saturday night as it was very bright and clean. Tea and coffee making facilitiesin a small kitchenette next door. Breakfast was a continental one downstairs as part of the price. Very pleased with the place and position. Would return.

Booked this for one night on my way back to Hobart airport. The premises is actually a pub and bottlestore with two floors of letting rooms above. When I checked in and proceeded to carry my luggage up to the second floor I was a little apprehensive about what I had let myself in for, but I was pleasantly surprised when opening the door to the room. The room was clean and bright, if a little dated. Parking and wifi were free and I had a good £10 meal in the bar. The place was busy with Christmas parties but that didn't disturb me, Breakfast was included in the price and there were tea and coffee making facilities in a shared kitchen area on the landing.
Good value for a city center room and I would stay here again.
