“Well Done”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

For the money, this is my pick in Hobart.
Rooms are being refurbished to a higher level of modernism and convenience, which makes them a reasonably high standard. Location is great, only 5 mins to city centre. Mini bar items very well priced, and service is extremely well honed.
Quiet area, no road noise, however open air style of the building detracts during the rain.
All in all, its not Buckingham Palace, but its not trying to be either.
Its good, honest, comfy accommodation at a very reasonable price for Hobart.

Great clean friendly place. We have used it as an alternative to the overpriced dated rooms at the Wrestpoint numerous times when we've had events and dinners to attend at casino and will continue to do so. It's just a short walk over road to casino.

Nice place to stay. Room was very clean and comfy. Renovations were being done but did not interfere with us. Views of Wrest Point Casino. Easy to find from the airport as we arrived in the dark. The receptionist was very helpful, gave very helpful advice on which way to go when leaving Hobart. Would definately reccommend this place to stay.

A very clean and tidy (ours was a very small) room on the ground floor, very modern, 2 TV's. the only downside was the stairwell that was next to our room which encroached into some of our room space. A great location on the shorefront across from the casino.

7 days traveling Tasmania and this was my choice for comfort. On a main road it was a little noisy however This also made it easy to navigate around Hobart. Staff helpful wifi free in rooms. Rooms large shower great. Recommend as a base to sightsee.

Reviewed 17 May 2014

Had prepped our house to perfection for two Open Houses and, as we didn't want to get anything crooked or smudgy, decided to spend two nights in a motel. Chose 429 because it had good reviews and was reasonably priced. Our room was on the ground floor (as requested) and was more than adequate to our needs. A TV in the bedroom as well as one in the tiny living room. Staff were obliging and pleasant throughout our stay. The real bonus was the splendid shower which produced gazillions of water at a really good pressure. The bed was also good although the doona was synthetic, unyielding and far too hot. This was our only criticism and we will return to 429 the night before our next Open House (already booked....)
