My husband and I spent 4 nights at Saffire this past May. We had a lovely stay. Below are a list of what we liked and what they could improve.
1. Food was really great. Classic French cooking but with local ingredients. We especially enjoyed the variety of local fish and the oysters. Breakfast and dinner are a la carte. Lunch includes a salad buffet as well as a la carte meat dishes.
2. Service in the dining room was very good.
3. Oyster farm tour was awesome.
4. Room was quite luxurious.
5. The Hobart airport lounge
1. Get nespresso machines! Plunger coffee in the room is verey messy.
2. There was a note in the mini-bar that items were for on-site consumption only and that if you didn't leave wrappers evidencing such consumption, you would be charged! Keep in mind the rate is ~1850/night.
3. Drinks menu in dining room was confusing. It listed package included wines but did not separate out the other drinks. The wines in the room was not available in the dining room.
