Stayed here for 3 nights in a 2 bed apt Feb23rd .2014. Read a few reviews on trip advisor & agreed with the ones that said,"Don't stay here if you want a decent night's sleep If you are given
a room on the road. The reason for this is Macquarie St is one of the busiest roads in
Hobart with 3 lanes full of traffic & in particular, lots of trucks! Luckily for us we had an inward
courtyard facing room, which was quiet, but the view was facing a wall
Room 414.The apartment itself was spacious if rather old fashioned in decor. I can't comment on the restaurant as we didn't eat there. On the positive side , the hotel is central, i.e. easy walking distance to the wharf area & Salamanca place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't front the main road i.e. Macquarie St, as it is very noisy!!

Dear CKT618018,

Thank you for taking the time to review our property and great to hear that you enjoyed your quiet, spacious Two Bedroom Apartment. As with any CBD property there is ambient city noise and we are glad that you found your apartment nice and quiet.

While our location is generally described as “central”, we are one block back from the waterfront and certainly, some of our apartments have an urban aspect. Being on the fourth floor I trust that that the natural light, particularly from the lounge-room was adequate.

Regarding our décor, we take your comments on board and at the same time respectfully suggest that personal taste comes into play here. If you choose to stay with us again please feel free to contact our Reception (24-hours) if you have any issues with your room and we will do what we can.

Very happy to hear that you enjoyed our location and it sounds like you got out and explored on foot – a must in Hobart!

Thanks again,
Sophie.

Stayed three nights during start of recent first trip to Tasmania. Great location with spacious apartment accommodation. Nice kitchen and lounge with two comfortable Sofas and a small dining table. Little utility room wish washer and drier and second toilet accessible from kitchen. WiFi bit slow was only downside to an otherwise very enjoyable stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Hobart.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a Tassie trip. Everything was within walking distance for us but we don't mind a bit if a stroll. All the action down on the waterfront is close and the food places are right there also. Once the car was parked it was only used once to get to the top of MtWellington for the great view. Breakfast was fantastic each morning and worth the money. I'd stay here again no worries.

Hi James C,
Thank you for taking the time to make a review. Glad you found the property central during your visit. Our hotel is a block away from the waterfront and is ideal for guests do walk to the docks, although we do not offer water views our location is ideal for guests wishing to be close to both the water and town.

Glad you could take full advantage of our Free Parking with your vehicle and only used this once while staying to visit Mount Wellington, good to hear you had some time to explore the Hobart surrounds!

Thanks for the comments on breakfast for those reading we offer a Full Buffet Breakfast for $19.50 and Continental for $14.

Cheers,
Sophie

I really enjoyed my stay at the Old Woolstore. I was 34 weeks pregnant during my stay, and the staff were helpful and friendly. I asked for extra pillows and they were in my room. The room was comfortable, clean and had all the things I needed for a 4 day stay. The hotel itself is a really nice former warehouse and there are some old photos and memorabilia in the hallways. Its a good location, close to the waterfront, restaurants and shops. I would stay there again. I can't wait to return to Tasmania and see more than Hobart.

Room Tip: I liked staying in the old section of the hotel as it had more character, but it was on the corner o...

Aussie_Wanderer_1 Thanks for taking the time to post your review.
It is so nice to hear our staff were able to assist with your needs whilst you were staying with us.

Great to hear you found the room was comfortable for your few days in Hobart and lovely to see you mentioning the history of The Old Woolstore. i am pleased you enjoyed our central location and hope you had some time to explore Hobart whilst visiting. Look forward to seeing you again if you travel back to Tasmania soon.

In regards to the room tips we are a centrally located hotel in the Hobart CBD which provides guest the chance to see the city by foot. We are a block back from the Hobart waterfront and provide guests with comfort and ease of access to central Hobart.

Cheers,
Sophie

Great apartment - very spacious and clean - roll away bed in living room waiting for us - great central location and value for money as we booked on a wotif mystery deal - would go back again as it is an ideal location and very comfortable - having a separate bedroom was also great for privacy
