I stayed here on business for a few days and chose this hotel just to try something different. I've stayed at a few other 4/5 star hotels in Hobart but usually stick to the larger chains.
I gave this hotel 5/5 as it really is one of Hobart's best options, but it definitely is work in progress. Check-in was fine but the current location does feel, somehow, "temporary" - and I found that I was having to drag out information that's usually automatically given to you - e.g. where and how breakfast work.
The rooms are definitely the high point - the decor is a little bland but certainly finished to a high standard. The appartments are just the right size (I found) and a nice change from your typical "room". Most of all I found it incredibly good value for money - especially the deluxe appartments with great views and spa bath on the balcony.
Breakfast is more like the reception area - it was very empty each time I went, with appropriately not all that much on offer - would be a shame to throw so much away each day! Again I found the service a little inconsistent - nothing to complain about but am sure this will improve.
The public areas do feel a little sparse - again I didn't find out exactly what's happened to this hotel but it had been built/renovated by one owner and then sold on to the current organisation that is now running it. The gym doesn't have an amazing feel about it, but has brand new, top of the range equipment.
I did like the location - it's centrally placed unlike most of the hotels which tend to be at either end of town. I would certainly consider staying here next time, especially when it will be up and running at full steam.
