I belong to a software development group that run an annual conference at different venues around Australia. WE chose the Old Woolstore in Hobart for one of our events. The feedback from the group suggests that this was one of the best venues we had ever used. The event ran very smoothly, with fast internet (a must for our group), great organisation, good rooms and very reasonable rates for both the conference expenses and the accommodation. Virtually across the road from the main Hobart Waterfront, and easy walking distance to Salamanca Place.

A very professionally run venue. Highly recommended.

This is our third time staying at this hotel. We love the location as it is very much within walking distance from the mall, the harbour and Salamanca Place (10 minutes walk). The room was sufficiently nice too. Unfortunately carpark is a problem as it gets full rather quickly (probably because it's free) and if you happen to come back late, you'll less likely to find any spot available. Other than that, it's very good.

Good place to stay in Hobart. Very close to Salamenca & shops!

Excellent breakfast with plenty to choose from.

Rooms are nice and clean but don't really feel 'homely'.

I would however stay here again!

We stayed a Saturday night in a 1 bedroom apartment room. It was great, very spacious. A well equiped kitchenette, separate 2nd toilet, a separate laundry with washer and dryer. Large bedroom with ensuite bathroom separate bath and shower. Good TV with 5 movie channels, two leather lounges, dining table and chairs - all very tasteful. Spotlessly clean !!! This place would be great for long stays. The only down side is limited parking. So if you get a parking space on check in - walk to where you want to go in the CBD ! and keep you parking spot. We will definitely stay here again.

My family of 4 stayed in Jan 2012, in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was very spacious, with 2 separate bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a large living area.

The location is great, within walking distance to the docks and the CBD.

The big negative for us was that the Queen bed was so hard. It was really uncomfortable and neither myself or my husband had a good's night sleep as a result. If we were staying more than one night, we would have moved.

The only other criticism I have is that there is no view - we looked out to a brick wall.

We had breakfast at the restaurant which was a very reasonably priced buffet. The range on offer was not as diverse as some, but was perfectly fine for the price.

This is a wonderful hotel in a prime position. Large rooms decorated are in a modern style. The hotel is only a block from the wharf and even had free parking.

We stayed at the Old Wool Store twice during our 2 week visit to Tasmania. On both occasions we were impressed with the layout of our one bedroom self contained apartment. The living area had two couches and a coffee table, and a desk was built into an alcove. There was a separate toilet/powder room. The bathroom was spacious - the room included the shower, and basin with a generous vanity top, plus washing machine and dryer. The bedroom was also a good size with a large wardrobe with mirrored sliding doors. There was a television in the living area and the bedroom. The first apartment had a king size bed, and the second had a queen bed.

The kitchen was well equipped with more than adequate utensils and pots/pans to prepare meals, and also included a microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

Mini bar items were also available in the room.

The Old Wool Store presented to us as a generous hotel, eg there was a plentiful supply of tea and coffee, towels, soap, soap powder, washing powder, etc, all replenished daily.

If you do not wish to cook your own meals there is a restaurant in the hotel - we did not use, therefore we cannot make comment.

The apartment was spotlessly clean. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful.

Internet was available for a daily fee.

The hotel is an easy walk to the waterfront, Salamanca, restaurants, and city centre. There is a convenience store within a few minutes walk.

Secure parking is available - undercover and in the open

Our only negative comment is that on a several occasions we heard loud-ish music - not sure of the source. But, it was not unbearable.

We would definitely stay at the Old Wool Store again and recommend the hotel to others.
