“Great location in a beautiful city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed in these apartments for 2 nights and was impressed. The apartment was huge, beds very comfy, with a relatively central location & only a short walk to the waterfront, Salamanca Markets & local bars. Would definitely stay here again

The location was perfect! Close to the pier with many restaurants nearby, about 5-10 min walk. Also within walking distance (20 mins) to Salamanca market.

However, the apartment looked tired although it was very spacious and clean. There was no heater in the bathroom but it wasn't too cold then. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which are all in the old wing. There was free internet so a big plus. We were there on Easter Sunday and the Easter Bunny left us a little treat!

Reception were very friendly and helpful though.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments are in the old wing.

Hi Siew818,

We appreciate you taking the time to make a review on your stay with us in April. Our central location is certainly appreciated by many guests visiting for leisure or business.

We understand each guest has their own views on the property and overall it sounds like you had a lovely stay in one of our two-bedroom apartments. All our rooms offer heat pumps for the main area and guest rooms on the original side of the building are undergoing some updates which includes heating upgrades in the bathrooms.

Great to see you enjoyed the FREE internet available to all guests and you enjoyed the nice Easter treat.

Regards,
Sophie

We stayed for three nights. The bed was comfortable, room huge with separate toilet, bathroom, kitchen and lounge, also had a washer and drier in the room.
We found it walking distance to everything.
The staff were friendly and accommodating.
We will stay again and recommend it to our travelling friends.

Have stayed thereon a number of times with both holidays and work. It is in the perfect spot. A quick walk to the dock and then onto Salamanca Place. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet and the staff are very friendly. Have never had a complaint while staying at this establishment.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights over the long weekend in June 2014.

When I heard the name of the hotel and found out that it was a converted Woolstore I was expecting something a bit more cosy and rustic - that it was not. Although the room was very large, new and clean it was a bit soul-less. Inside it felt a bit like a US style 'big-box' chain hotel.

The location is good and walkable distance into the city or Salamanca and the free parking was great.

We went to have breakfast at the hotel and then walked away because it was pretty dire and unappealing - that's not really a problem as in a 15 minute walk there are some cafe's down near the water.

Reception was helpful, if not friendly when I encountered them. Did not try the gym but there was one there.

Hi hotsyd22,
We appreciate you taking the time to provide a review after your stay with us and great to see that your experience was positive overall with a 4/5 rating.
Good to hear that you found the location suited your needs during your stay and the free parking was received well especially in the Hobart CBD.
We have 242 rooms here at The Old Woolstore, half being inside the façade of a heritage-listed Old Woolstore. We would certainly describe our accommodation rooms as more “contemporary” than “rustic” however this is of course a subjective and open to discussion. I see that you have given us 5/5 for cleanliness which is also a product of the room-design.
It is disappointing to read your comments regarding breakfast and if you would like to elaborate please feel free to contact me at feedback@oldwoolstore.com.au

I hope that you enjoyed your time in Hobart and will come and visit us again!

Thanks,
Sophie
