“Noisy Nights”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012 via mobile

The hotel is in an excellent location within easy walking distance to the harbour, Salamanca market and city centre. Parking is a bit of a problem but on check in the receptionist was helpful. The room was roomy with a large comfortable bed but other facilities were very poor - no hanging space except an extending arm out of the wall with a few odd assorted wire and cheap plastic hangers. This arrangement is only good for shirts, trousers not for dresses. The included one item from the menu for breakfast was excellent although the self service tea and coffee was poor. We stayed 3 nights over a weekend and although the waterfront view looks great during daylight hours the teenage revelling and noise from the nightclub opposite was awful and kept us awake until 5 am on 2 of our 3 nights. I suggest you request a room on the back if staying on a Friday or Saturday night.

Stayed March 2012

Stayed in a Waterfront twin room booked on wotif.com, clean but very basic. No wardrobe, just a peg on the wall and no aircon, just a fan. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Because it is an old building, after getting the lift up to the second floor, we then had stairs to manoeuver with our luggage. Breakfast was ok.

My husband I stayed here for 5 nights in March. We were able to walk to all the sights in Hobart from there. We especially enjoyed the included breakfasts and the dinners were awesome. Best food we had in Hobart. The seafood was superb.
The front desk staff were extremely helpful.

Room Tip: We selected a room in the back of the hotel which was very quiet.

My partner and I stayed in March. The best thing abou this place is the location - right across from Salamanca Square and the wharf, and a short walk to the CBD. Probably one of the best locations to stay in. We had a room on the 3rd storey overlooking the wharf. The view was fabulous. Place was clean and tidy, the bed comfy and most of all was surprisingly quiet given that there was a band plaiying downstairs, we couldn't hear a thing. My only complaint was that the hot water in the shower kept turning cold then hot again. Wasn't enough to put me off staying here again. Definitely value for money given that it as much cheaper than alternative accommodation and in a much better location.

Room Tip: Try and request a room that has a view of the sea

Discovered this venue by chance and we were attracted by the busy dining room. The staff were friendly and attentive. Meals were a good size, well presented and delicious.. Good selection of wines by the glass.

We stayed here two nights while in Tazzy in Feb 2012. One before going to the countryside for hiking and another after our expedition. It is a comfortable place but a bit spartan. Bathrooms are newer and quite spacious. Some rooms are a bit tight and could use some modernization. Avoid the 3rd floor if you can unless you don't mind carrying baggage up from 2 to 3 (elevator only goes to second floor). Our room came with complimentary breakfasts which is actually worth 30 bucks plus (for two) due to high meal costs in Australia (breakfast was quite good both days). All in all, it was a very good value and gave us a nice, clean place to rest our weary bods with a great location right next to Salamanca. Staff was VERY friendly (as was the case all over Australia) and they gave us a parking pass good at the lot across the street.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a little parlor on the second floor.

After trudging round to several overpriced and shabby backpackers, we happened to stumble across Customs House. At $110 per night for a double room, it was cheaper than a private room in the YHA and included breakfast! Also, it was right by the harbour and in prime position for catching the boat across to MONA. I was really impressed by the affordability of the place given it's high standard of cleanliness, friendly staff, breakfast and parking inclusion and the location.
