We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Woolstore. We were in Hobart for a wedding and this place was close, very very clean and tidy and was reasonably priced. We got a comp upgrade to a studio and had water views. The room was very quiet with the balcony door shut and everything was very nice inside. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable and we almost didn't want to get up. A great base to explore the waterfront and Salamanca. Highly recommended!

I regularly stay in Hobart hotels on Business. I stumbled onto the Old Woolstore Hotel last year and without a shadow of doubt it is the cleanest hotel I have stayed in. The carpets have been really clean in all of the rooms I have stayed in so I reckon that the guy who had the bad experience must have been very unlucky. It is not overly priced - I really think it is probably the best value, best kept secret in town. Staff are super friendly and efficient- check in is a breeze and check out takes me about 5 seconds flat.
By the way the food in the restaurent is realy great value. I like the fact that when I stay there they give me a free unlimited pass to the Hobart Aquatic center - which is just brilliant- especially the steam room.
I see why this Hotel wins most of the awards in Hobart and I note the Best Hotel in Australia in its class (supreme)in 2003.

great location, walking distance to everything but when we stayed the floor (carpet) in our room was so dirty we had to request another room, which was just as bad. We were staying over Chrsitmas and would have preferred to change hotels but everything was booked. It was so bad we couldn't let out 10month old crawl on the floor as he would get covered in black and we had to keep our shoes on or our feet would get filthy.

We recently stayed at the Old Woolstore and enjoyed our stay. The place was clean and comfortable, although I wouldn't really consider it an "apartment" hotel as our room did not have any cooking facilities (unless we got the wrong room type). The hotel is quite a walk to the main sites in the city (Salamanca Place/Wharf), but if you have a car or enjoy long walks then it should be fine. Breakfast buffet was good. Would definitely consider coming back.

This is a great choice for families or small groups. We had a spacious and comfortable three bedroom apartment (a two bedroom apartment with an adjoining hotel room). The hotel is an easy walk from Sullivan's Cove, Salamanca Place, and the CBD. There are numerous restaurants in the vicinity. The rooms are quiet. We ate in the hotel's restaurant which was fine. Some of the parking spaces can be challenging to navigate. Service was friendly and professional. We would certainly stay there again.

Travel to Hobart often for work. Recently stayed at Woolstore as usual Hobart hotel fully-booked. Will not be doing so again. Requested non-smoking room - room provided stank of cigarettes. Requested move and although early in day (not all guests checked-in), management advised that a move was not possible. Decided to tolerate the room as only two night stay. Returned to the hotel the following afternoon to find another couple in my room!!!! The staff had taken it upon themselves to pack my items (removing unpacked personal items and valuables) and move them to another room into without any reference to me. It then took them close to fifteen minutes to find out which room they had placed my belongings in. No apology or explanation given!!!
Parking an issue - if hotel close to maximum occupancy, staff direct guests to a public facility in town (no shuttle provided even late at night and limited direction given).
Although hotel is of reasonable standard, my experience there will ensure that I will never stay again.
