“Great Style”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We just had a quick trip to Hobart staying at Hadleys Hotel. After having lived in Tasmania many years ago we have regular trips back and always enjoy staying there. I was told the hotel has a new owner and lots are planned for the stately old girl, I look forward to a return trip to see the result. I love this hotel, the beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the pillows are large and you sink into them, it's just a great hotel to stay at. Hadleys is walking distance to all the places you need to visit, this time we did not hire a car and enjoyed getting around on foot. You are surrounded by great restaurants or you can eat at the hotel, we had breakfast there and it was a nice start to the day, a good breakfast, The one exception was the coffee machine, they should remove that, even instant would be better than the coffee from that machine. The one thing I did miss was the open fire in the bar, I hope they decide to keep that after refurbishing. The staff are wonderful very friendly and will go out of their way to help or chat and advise, I can not rate this hotel high enough, if you want a modern cold place it's not for you, for warmth and style then book and enjoy.

I have been very fortunate to take high tea at Hadley's a few times now, and it is without doubt the best in Hobart. The restaurant s beautiful and cosy and the sweet and savoury treats are delicious with a fantastic choice of teas, or Janz by the glass. I guess the only thing I could say that isn't so good is that over time the serving sizes have gotten smaller. Last time we had just one scone, four little sweet treats, and three little quarter sandwiches each. We left hungry. The photo is what was provided for three people.

The staff at Hadley's were always happy and helpful. I had family members with medical problems and the staff used their initative to help this family member. I can honestly not express how amazing the stuff were.

The rooms were clean and cosy.

The bistro has good honest cheap pub food.

Yes this hotel is elderly but be gentle. The staff are fabulous - obliging to the end. The young man on reception when we arrived at 3am was outstanding (courtesy of Quantas cancelling our flight and sending us on a 3 hour road transfer (with no luggage) - he gave us emergency supplies and spent a great deal of time the next day chasing down our missing luggage from Quantas. We also encountered Rosie with the red hair and she is an undoubted asset to the hotel. The beds are the most comfortable we slept in during a 4 week road trip. Hobart is lovely. Yes the bar shuts early but if you are thirsty the pub next door is open till 3am with great beers (try the Matilda Bay tasting board). We loved Hadleys and will recommend to all.

Dear Trisha B
Thank you for your review. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Hadleys Hotel. Thank you for your positive comments regarding your experience with our staff. I will certainly pass on your kind words to the entire team. It’s great to hear our beds were the most comfortable you slept in during your 4 week road trip. Hadleys Bar opens from 4.00pm – late daily, offering cosy surrounds for a casual meal or a relaxed drink at the end of a day spent exploring Hobart’s hidden secrets. Our Happy Hour runs just a little longer than usual…Monday - Thursday 5.00-6.30pm & Fridays 5.00 -7.00pm. Thank you for recommending Hadleys Hotel and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Kind regards

Stayed here for two nights in April. The staff were lovely and the hotel has real charm. As most of the reviews say on the website, the place in undergoing renovations, but the rooms are lovely and clean, with plenty of space.

Particularly great location, just a short stroll down to Salamanca. Have already recommended this place to friends, and will definitely stay here when I come to Hobart next time.

Room Tip: Check out Hadley's website and book directly as I got a free room upgrade, rather than going thr...

We had three excellent dinners at the Bistro in Hadley's Hotel. The variety and preparation of the meals were great and cooked to perfection. They were very reasonably priced and could not be faulted.
The bar and waitress staff were very friendly and efficient at there work.

We weren't even staying at this hotel but a connecting hotel, when we wandered into Hadleys.
We met receptionist, Rosie. Wow!! What an asset to your business. She told us everything there was to know about Tasmania with a smile. As we had missed the tattersalls shops, she gave us info on how to do this online.
Nathan and Lisa in the bar were also exceptional!! Cannot comment on anything but the hotel and staff. We are coming back just for Hadleys soon.
Well done!!
