      I had the main course of crumbed scallops for $29
      In short the scallops were very tiny, not properly crumbed in oil but soaked throughout in oil, and 3/4 plate full of useless fries with a small side salad. This place I had the impression had good meals but in my experience no
      My wife said her seafood chowder was bland and her entree of Thai Fish Cakes are not that. More so Australian fish cakes as she is Thai.
      We wasted our money!

      Great location close to Salamanca Place and the waterfront. Staff are friendly and food is good pub fare - the seafood is a highlight. Rooms are fairly basic but adequate. Front rooms have views of the port area and out to the Derwent. Can be noisy when the pub downstairs is busy. Overall good value.

      I only stayed one weeknight but was delighted by the spacious room with sandstone fireplace and heritage features. The view is certainly worth asking for and the generous breakfast made a great start to the day. It's in a wonderful location for accessing Salamanca galleries and shops and just around the corner is the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery and Maritime Museum.
      The other reviews mentioned noise but I stayed on a Tuesday night which made for a peaceful night's sleep. The only gripe would be the shower heads (I like water saving) but it would be good to be able to get a little wet to get clean!
      Otherwise a great hotel to get into the vibe of Hobart's rich history.

      Room Tip: Ask for a view!

      My wife and I stayed for six nights we could not fault anything , the service was fantastic in every respect , the meals were great , the view from our window of the harbour was to die for , did,nt need the car to go to town , restaurants , boat trips or the Salamanka markets , everything was within easy walking distance , when we fly to Hobart again we would not consider staying at any other location , simply the best.
      The only down side was we had to leave.

      Room Tip: Book a harbour view room

      Was given a room on the upper floor with a lovely view looking out over the harbour.

      The room was clean, inexpensively furnished with old furniture, with an odd shaped bathroom (when you turn the shower on, water sprays outside of the shower area, so you either have to get in and sprayed with cold water while adjusting temperature, or get water everywhere as you can’t adjust the shower nozzle.) You can also stand under the shower and have a huge part of you not get wet!

      Don’t expect to sleep even mid week (even with the window closed). The downstairs bar has outside seating with heaters resulting in lots of yelling and screeching until after the bar closes at 2am and the patrons finally move on.

      There is a great selection for breakfast (cold and hot meals) which was included in the room rate.

      If you are a partying person this place is great, however, if you like to get some sleep to recharge then look elsewhere.
