    « Basic hotel for a quick stay »

    Its essentially a good motel for a quick stay. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom room which was great however one of the 2 tvs did not work (kept flicking on and off), the room is a bit dated and the tap in the bathroom shot out water at an incredible speed! But the room was clean and the furniture was fine. The location is good too.

    « Mother's Day weekend getaway »

    Had the most wonderful stay here. Stayed for 4 nights. The staff were very friendly & location was very close to the harbour and main streets of Hobart. The hotel also had a bar and restaurant which was very convenient due to heavy rain during this time. Overall, a great place to stay with kids. Thank you Best Western.

    « Just an average hotel. »

    I can't really say anything too positive about this place or anything too negative. It's an average hotel. The staff aren't overly helpful or friendly. The room itself was a bit dated. There are no extra power points and we had to unplug a lamp to charge our phones. The hot water in the bathroom was excessively hot and would scald easily. The tap over sink leaked. The freezer in the fridge didn't freeze and so there were no ice cubes. There was no way to change the temperature. There was mould in the ice cube tray that staff at the front desk were disinterested in. Just average.

    Got a deal via Groupon so value was v good - room was clean although there were signs of wear - bed was comfortable- breakfast was included and was good - tv, a/c etc all worked well- parking was reasonable at $10 per day- did not try the restaurant- location was in the cbd and close to everything.

    Nice place, great location, walk a block over to get awesome coffee at Capulus Espresso. Room was clean and comfortable and staff helpful. Off-street parking is a bit cramped but adequate. Corridors were a bit dated but room decor was nice and pillow top mattress was great.

    « Handy location and comfy rooms »

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Hobart, the hotel is in a great location with lots to do in the area and a nice stroll to the piers, although the walk back will be uphill. There are plenty of eating options close and also a restaurant available at the hotel. Parking was very tight and limited but we found if we generally got back by around 5:00 it wasn't too hard to find a park. 4wd's would find it quite difficult, we had a rav 4 and found we could only park in certain spaces. Parking will cost you $10 per day. Excellent customer service from all staff from reception to bar staff to restaurant staff.

    « Handy location, fantastic staff »

    I stayed here for 3 nights, in early April, on a business trip. From the moment I arrived the staff were all lovely, helpful and professional. Nothing was too much trouble. The standard room was a good size and very clean and inviting, with lovely linen. The shower was over the bath, apparently they don't have many rooms with a walk in showers. I didn't hear any noise from the corridor, or outside. There is a mini bar in the room. During our 2 day seminar, our group was extremely well looked after by Sean, who was friendly, funny, professional, and made sure we were well catered for. Don't miss the really delicious takeaway cappuccino's they sell at the bar. I will definitely stay here next time I'm in Hobart.

    This is a genuine view of my of my stay at Best Western,Hobart. I would recommend it to others looking for accommodation in Hobart Tasmania. It was good value and very well situated in Hobart I wish that I had had more time to explore Hobart more thoroughly. Hopefully next time that I visit there I will.

    We spent three nights at Best Western Hobart in the April 2018. Check-in was very efficiency. We had a room with balcony on 4/F. The room is great, spacious and clean. We have an excellent both city and mountain views throughout the balcony. Many tour brochures were placed at the lobby of Hotel which is good for tourists. The staffs were very helpful and professional. Location of the hotel is great and you can easy to access everywhere in town especially to waterfront within 15 minutes. Best Western Hobart is the best value for stay.

    Had to make last minute changes to our trip, so booked in here as prices were so good. Photos are very accurate and would probably choose a balcony room next time as felt a little claustrophobic. BUT beds were very comfortable, room was clean, great hot showers, happy hour good for G and T's. Very warm rooms but could occasionally hear neighbours showering. Check in and out was friendly and quick. The parking is $10 per day, but we found that the street parking was fine (and free) as long as you moved by 9am. Would recommend if you have a car

    We found the location of this motel amazing it certainly did not fail in that area. It was so easy to get from the motel to any part of the city either by car or walking. Plenty to do within the location plus the Markets on the Sunday morning wow they are amazing just a 5 minute walk away. Would certainly stay again and recommend to friends heading down to Hobart.

    « Excellent accommodation but noisy »

    We found the room to be fantastic; comfy king size bed, large screen TV, lovely shower spray, heating and cooling as needed. Breakfast at the downstairs restaurant was delicious and parking, although it cost extra, was very convenient. The downside was how noisy it was. You can hear all the plumbing (showers running and toilets flushing), banging of doors down the corridor and traffic from the streets below.

    Rooms have been recently freshend up. Location to Hobart CBD puts everything within walking distance including Salamanca and Battery Point. Embers Restaurant offers a range of meals including Room service. A popular draw card is the 4 on to 6pm Happy Hour. $5 schoonens, basic spirits or wine.

    Our stay at your hotel was comfortable and very pleasant. The only issues were that I booked a room for 3 adults and ended up with one which had to have a rollaway bed brought in and there were only 2 cups, glasses etc. The checkin person was stern and unmoved by my concerns in this regard.

    « This place is exactly that. Average. »

    Stayed here for a conference late last year. Hobart is a lovely little town and well worth the visit. I've been twice now and will definitely make my way back again. In terms of places to stay I would say the Best Western is completely unremarkable. Rooms are somewhat tired and pretty average. Nice bath which seemed to be cleaned well when I arrived. Cleaners were meticulous and very good. tired.

    « Great place to stay in Hobart »

    This is a great place to stay in Hobart. I found the staff incredibly helpful and friendly. The beds were comfortable and as a lone female traveller I felt very safe.my only suggestion to other sole travellers would be to return to hotel prior to 10 pm if driving and leaving car in underneath carpark. You need to use a phone, identify yourself and have the lift sent down which is great however you are alone during this time. I really enjoyed my stay and would stay there again

    « Good value for money »

    I booked this hotel because of its location, price and parking availability beside the hotel (pay). The room was basic but comfortable - decor and bathroom could do with a bit of updating. Breakfast was satisfactory. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Ten minute walk down to the harbour front which was OK, coming back up the slope was a bit more of a chore!

    « Friendly staff, comfortable bed »

    Had a three night stay in this hotel. The king size bed was very comfortable, there was a good size tv, good airconditioning (surprisingly necessary on a hot day in Hobart) but other than that the room was beginning to show signs of age. The bathrooms are small so only room for one at a time really. Overall though a good well priced and well located hotel. We had room service one day and the burger was the best I've eaten for a long time, great chips too!!! I would stay again as I thought it was value for money when some of Hobarts hotels can be a bit overpriced and after all you are only using the room to sleep in and use the bathroom. The staff were lovely and we were warmly greeted every day. Best Western you always know what you are getting so there are no surprises.

    « Friendly staff, very good restaurant and good rooms »

    We spent two nights in this Hotel. It is in the city center, with lots of excellent places to eat dinner and high-quality cafés around. The beds were comfy and the room size was also pretty good. The cars on the street can be a bit noisy (so do not expect to use your balcony on a weekday) and the bathrooms are a bit out of date. However, the staff was very friendly and the restaurant at the ground floor has good food to offer.

    « Staff go out of their way to please »

    The rooms and the breakfast were adequate without being brilliant. If you need to park a car there, take great care approaching the barrier uphill on the way out, particularly if you're not used to the car. The location is OK if you are happy walking or want to drive, but it is a little way from the hub.

    « Short trip to Tassie »

    Very comfy king size bed. Nice crisp bed linen. Older style decor but it was actually very pleasant. Good air con and room service very reasonably priced. Fastest room service for ice buckets etc .Close to everything in Hobart town, Salamanca and Constitution docks. I would suggest a trip to Woolworths in Elizabeth st to get necessities before you book in as no mini mart nearby.

    « Comfortable Bed, convenient location and great value. »

    The location was excellent and you could walk down to Salamanca market, the Mall and nearby caffes. Close to Battery Point and an easy drive up to Mount Wellington. The room is spacious and the King size bed was super comfortable. Will definitely come back.

    « Excellent hotel just out of town »

    Stayed here in a 2 bedroom suite, bedrooms nice and large with comfortable beds, large lounge to relax in, all rooms had balconies, was nice and quiet. Bathroom had excellent walk in rainfall shower. Cheap drinks in bar during happy hour. Good WiFi. Easy walk to everything, although uphill on way back. We had hired a car from Hertz to move on from here, and it was just over the road, which we had not known when we booked.

    « Too expensive for what you get. »

    Wouldn't stay here again...not worth it. Toilet didn't flush properly and was very tiny. One woman on the customer service desk was down right rude, however all housekeeping staff were very polite and respectful. Food was average with burnt pieces and definitely not worth the overblown price.

    « Comfortable visit »

    Stayed here overnight with my fiancée for a quick trip for a 30th birthday. The bed was big and comfortable. The room was spacious. Location was reasonable and was within walking distance to the market and the main shopping of Hobart. Breakfast was a buffet and was very tasty but quite expensive for what it was. However if you have kids they eat free. The bathroom needs an upgrade as there was not enough ventilation for the steam from the shower, which you could tell was an issue from old stain marks of mound on the roof of the bathroom. But that was a minor issue just something they could look into fixing. Overall a very nice stay and would consider to stay here again if we find ourselves in Hobart again.

Not sure if i would stay there again.

    « A Pleasant Stop Over at Hobart »

    The staff was friendly and helpful with a reasonably priced 24 hr onsite parking. A typical older style hotel which is popular for package tours. Good wifi speed and connection. There is an onsite restaurant if you don't feel like walking out. Quite close to major eating places and the city centre. The rooms have been refurbished recently so they are clean and comfortable. Some slight noises from guests in the corridors from packaged tourist groups and toilet flushing heard from upper floors or adjacent rooms. These are not a major concern as it is expected in older style hotels.

    We stayed here when we participated in the Cadbury Marathon. It was a short walk to Constitution Dock and Battery point with plenty of restaurants in an easy walking distance.

    « Good location, but too bad that non-smoking rooms have no meaning. »

    Stayed in a room that was meant to be non-smoking. There were people smoking in the balconies of other rooms and pretty soon our room was stinking of cigarette smoke. This made for a very bad experience especially travelling with a little infant. The room was kept clean every day and the staff were courteous. It is located in a great spot to be able to access the CBD and other places of interest.

    « Worst customer service from Duty Manager Tracey Wallace »

    I arrived the night of the 28th of December. Unfortunately, the room that I had booked was not available and we were accomodate in another room. I allowed it as there were not more rooms available, coming from Darwin, we were traveling the whole day, I was with two toddlers (4 and 3) and the receptionist was very apologetic. However, as I spoke to Duty Manager Tracey Wallace the next day, she seemed upset when I asked her about a change to the actual room that I had booked or some sort of compensation for it... The next day, after coming back from a tour we came back to a room that have not been cleaned and when I asked reception (the same person Tracey Wallace) said that she could provide some towels and coffee and that there were not housekeeping available... when asked to clean the room she said ?what do you want? ... isn't it obvious??? TO COME BACK TO A CLEAN ROOM!!! After spending the whole day out and wanting to rest in a clean room! Isn't this one of the aims when you stay in a hotel??? That you don't have to worry and just relax!!! Now we have to spend the night in a filthy room just because it was not served by housekeeping.... very disappointing for the price that I paid !!!

    Just returned from a very enjoyable four night stay. Great location,all the main points of interest are within easy walking distance. Spacious rooms with a very comfortable bed and the shower in the bathroom was excellent. Ordered room several times and the food was very good and delivered in good time. Nice bar/restaurant area downstairs and all the staff are very polite and helpful. If I'm luck enough to ever visit beautiful Hobart again I would have no hesitation in booking at the Best Western again

    « Overall a satisfactory stay! »

    We were touring Hobart and stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is located quite centralized with a short walk to the main shopping area (i.e. Elizabeth Mall, Centrepoint and Salamanca Place where the weekend market is being held), all within 5-12 mins. There are also several dinning outlets around the hotel and so even when most shops and eateries in the shopping areas are closed by 5 or 6pm, you can still find food. Our room was 103 and it was quite ok. Would say it was cosy, neat and simple. While most hotel rooms have orange lightings, it does have a mixed of white and orange lightings. While we can have a good view outside our hotel (as there was quite a big space outside but we have no access, what a shame or it would be a perfect balcony)! Almost all the things hotel guests need, they do provide like fridge, coffee making machine, iron and iron board etc, among others. But there is no locker in room. Beds are comfortable and we did have a great rest throughout our stay. Bathroom was ok and there was a bathtub, standard length but quite shallow though. Instead of providing shower gels, the hotel provides pieces of soap instead. Well, it would be better for gels as it can help to reduce wastages and easier to use than the latter. Wifi was fine and stable. And room service was done well. As for the cafe, it's cosy and quite nice and had a good mix of western and asian dishes. The standard western food like sausages, bacon, bread, cakes, baked beans, eggs etc, they also offer congee, stir fried bee hoon (vermicelli), cut fruits and juices, among others. Would say overall food was fine though from we felt that the congee and bee hoon were somehow "off par" than the ones we know, since we are coming from an Asian country who are well familiar with these 2 dishes. Perhaps that's the Australian's way of cooking. Staff were efficient, friendly and polite, used plates were cleared promptly. Staff were friendly, helpful and provided good and clear instructions in getting around the areas. Overall, we had a satisfactory stay here.

    « Just what you would expect »

    Visited Hobart for business during a busy time and stayed here because the price was right. Comfortable, quiet and reasonably convenient. Just what you would expect of a Best Western really. Only real niggle was that half of the cable channels including Sky News were not available on days we stayed.

    « Spacious rooms and close to everything »

    Arrived on a very wet and windy day and was delighted that the wonderful staff were able to get me into a room straight away. The hotel was spotless and my room was large and well appointed, modern facilities and good size tv, spotless bathroom and a lovely view of the hills from balcony. The food was wonderful, had a woodfired oven pizza one night that was to die for and the buffet breakfast was very good too. Overall this hotel was a delight.

    I arrived in hobart and hadn't booked anywhere. This motel was easy to find good location and was priced well. Staff were very helpful on arrival and during my stay. The bed was comfortable and the shower was good. You could look outside the window at the mountains in the background. Definitely would stay again.

    « Maybe I'll explore another place to stay next time »

    This is not one of the better Best Westerns I have stayed at. Poor rooms (mine was clearly one for 2 doubles that they changed to a queen and the set up was very messy). I was also conducting training in the rooms for customers and the room was too hot, the hot water for tea was cold and the overall experience was very poor. Don't think I will be returning here in a hurry.

    Stayed 1 night in November for a family celebration in Sandy Bay. Although hotel is a little dated on the outside we were pleasantly surprised how modern the inside is. Reception area and staff were great very helpful. Room clean and comfortable. Thank goodness for air conditioning as it was a particularly hot weekend we were there. About a 20 minute walk to the waterfront. Got a good rate for a Saturday night $184. Happy to stay there again.

    We stayed 4 nights. Good value for $640 for 3 adults for a 2 bedroom hotel room. Good location and staff were friendly. Particularly the bar staff for an afternoon drink. Parking was easy for the hire car. Only complaint was the buffet breakfast was terrible so we ate elsewhere and cheaper as well.

    « 3 Nights -Awesome Time! »

    Spent a few days travelling around Hobart and chose the Best Western. Car Park located underneath, steep drive in and out, gated ..there is a fee of $10/day. Room was very modern and clean, small balcony, with view of Mt Wellington and Hobarts outer suburbs. Location is good as its only a short 5-10 minute walk anywhere around Hobart CBD Took advantage of the Guest laundry on level 4, and did a load of washing and drying..about $4 per load, and $4 to dry. Dinner first night was elsewhere to a place we had been previously, but the other two nights we ate and drank in. Happy Hour starts at 530pm for discounted drink and a bar snack. Restaurant is good, service was good the first night and terrible the 2nd night, massively understaffed and overbooked, i felt sorry for the wait staff as they were running around and quite late in getting food from pick up, and multiple errors ensued. Quality of food is generally very good, however a Sticky Date Pudding should be sticky, and not something just pulled from a fridge..hard and dry! Bar Staff were excellent--cudos to Sean the bar Manager, has done a great job and looked after us well! Overall very happy

    A great hotel for an overnight stay, and convenient for the business traveller. It is close to the CBD and has super fast free wifi. It is not really suited for the romantic getaway though, the bathroom is a little small and the bath is small and shallow. We enjoyed our stay. The facilities were well appointed.

    « Comfy with annoyances »

    Bed was very comfy, room was pleasant enough and certainly did the job. Location was far enough walk away from things that it was annoying but not long enough to warrant an uber trip and wait. A small group of us used booking.com to book 5 rooms and pay with the company debit card. This was a disaster and each blaming each other. Some had to pay for their rooms again and for a refund.

    « A pleasant hotel »

    This is a pleasant hotel, clean, bright with a very friendly, efficient staff in a convenient location. (Car-parking costs $10 per night) However, it can be rather noisy during the night. We had a room at the side of the hotel and traffic noise was quite loud. In fact at 2 am I was wakened by the noise of a lorry (or two) - at first I thought it was roadworks? No idea why it sounded as if bricks were being off loaded! That aside, we would return.

    « An average place to stay in Hobart »

    The rooms here are pretty basic and the shower is over the bath in the bathrooms which upsets a lot of people. There was no non slip mat provided. The shower itself was great, hot and good pressure. There is no fan in the bathroom so it steams up pretty quickly and leaves everything wet. The beds were a little soft and the room quite small but clean enough.

    3
    « Average option, good service but - poor quality mattress »

    Stayed here 4 days in October. Front desk service very good - would rate that. The beds were too soft but in a saggy kind of way - these need updating. Good thick towels. Interiors is 90s and dated. Gym equipment is good. Overall I felt the price was a little high given the interiors. Location is good - easy walking distance to main attractions. Free wifi worked well. Free parking on the street on weekends and after 5PM so you don't need to pay for hotel parking overnight.

    « Warm, friendly and helpful »

    Having travelled to many countries and stayed in many hotels, I would consider this to be one of the best. It is modern and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable- I saw no evidence of them being 'tired' as some reviewers have claimed. It is centrally located and the restaurant has great food at good prices and the bar is warm and cosy. What makes this hotel stand out though are the staff who are so helpful without being effusive. Nothing is too much for them and they will go out of their way to help in a quiet but effective way providing a level of customer service that I have not seen before. Tasmania is a beautiful place and I certainly hope to be back and when I do return I will most certainly stay in this hotel.

    We had a really comfortable stay at this hotel on the edge of the CBD in Hobart. Although our room was a little dated, it was very spacious and had a comfortable bed and a good bathroom. We had everything we needed - flat screen TV, WiFi and tea/coffee making facilities. The only thing was that the carpet in our room could have done with a good steam clean! Parking for $10 per night was a bonus!!

    Around 10:56 and there has a party going on and the volume was really loud and i can hear the voice up a floor and the people who was enjoying the party was interring us and make us grumpy, we tell the reception to tell them reduce the volume down, but, they ignore us and the volume getting louder and louder, then we went down the lift and ask what going on and complain them because they said the party will end at 11 o'clock and the party still at 11:30 so we will never go back to that worst western hotel.

    « Good hotel, poor evacuation skills. »

    Great rooms and locations, however, during my stay we had an electrical fire in the kitchen. Apparently, the lower floors alarms went off and staff told them to evacuate, whereas the top two floors, which myself and my group were staying in were not notified, neither did our alarms go off. It was the fire brigade who yelled at us from the street to get out of the building. There was also a disabled lady in a wheelchair and no assistance was offered by staff to help evacuate her down the stairs. I was disappointed and disgusted by this, had this been a more serious fire that lady may not have made it out alive and everyone in the upper floors would have been at risk too. Staff were not friendly or helpful at all.

    « Good location, great view. »

    This is a little hard to get to, as its on a one way street which isn't very clear unless you live in Hobart, but that's about the only thing negative i have to say about this place. I was very surprised at the view we got from our room. Views of mount wellington and the ocean. We decided to get room service and stay in, dragged the table over to the sliding door and had a good meal with great night views of the city. The room service was pretty decent too. All in all, pretty good for the price.

    « Could do with a refurb of the rooms »

    I stayed two nights at the Best Western Hobart, and should probably have paid a bit more and stayed elsewhere. The rooms are feeling very tired and need a refresh. That being said, the rooms were extremely affordable, and still very good value for money for the budget conscious traveller. The hotel is not inconvenient in it's location, with eating options easily accessible, and Salamanca still within walking distance.

    « Too many fire evacuations »

    As our room only had a kettle and fridge, and our son was competing in a National running championship, we decided to buy a cheap toaster so that we could feed him something before his early morning starts. On the first morning of our stay, the smoke alarm went off in the corridor, and we were told that the alert had had been triggered from our room. Although our toaster had not burnt any toast, or showed any signs of smoke at all, it had been blamed for the alarm. Everyone in the hotel was evacuated outside into the freezing cold. We were told there were signs everywhere stating no toasters to be used, however this was completely untrue. There was not one sign anywhere in our room or anywhere else in the hotel. We were then told we would be charged a $350 fee as a result. When I queried it, I was told I had signed their "terms and conditions at check-in, (which is the tiniest print you've ever seen, & which everyone knows that nobody reads). Apparently in this tiny print it says I will not use any cooking facility. At the time when I was asked to sign, the staff didn't explain any conditions, and even when I stated I didn't have my glasses and couldn't see what or where I was signing, the only response was that they pointed to the spots and told me to initial "here" and sign "here". One would at least think the terms and conditions would have been described when they knew I couldn't read it. We had no choice but to pay the fee. The following night, as we were going out for dinner, the alarm went off again, and everyone was once again evacuated outside in the freezing cold. Apparently this time, it was a hair dryer. We were only there 3 days, and 2 of them involved evacuations. Extremely inconvenient and costly for us. No responsibility taken by the hotel to ask a partially blind person to sign conditions they couldn't read, or to place warning signs in the rooms, especially when they stated that there were such signs. Pretty disgusted that a follow up email stating my case, didn't get any type of compensation for the fee charged. We definitely won't be back.

    « Absolutely fantastic staff, Room; not so much.. »

    First of all i would like to deeply commend Best Western Hobart on their impeccable staff! Apon making the agonizing drive from Launceston to Hobart and arriving at the hotel to check in, I discovered that despite giving Booking.com my credit card details I had to pay the hotel the room fee. Only issue is i left my credit card to save money i don't have, The duty manager was fantastic in his assistace and patience as i was getting more and more angry with being on hold to booking.com to try and get permission on behalf of the hotel to charge my credit card wirelessly from reception. After 45 minutes of excruciating hold music and passing my phone back and forth to the duty manager the card was finally charged and i was checked in.. Now this is where i wasnt so impressed, the room. I was on the 3rd floor in a king room with balcony (310). The look of the room just as you open the door is nice i will admit but for me, thats where it stopped. The bathroom is outdated, the shower was over the children sized bath that barely gets anything wet, and the whole thing is given privacy by a shower curtain. To make the horrid shower/bath combo even worse, trying to oporate that button thing to select which faucet you require and the tap in the sink had better water pressure than the shower. Ive stayed in standard rooms through my travels with better bathrooms that the king rooms here, I mean; why are shower curtains even a thing anymore? They are manky and gross, not to mention how disgusting it feels when they stick to you.. The bed had way too many pillows and was quite uncomfortable. The fridge was shut away in the cupboard and the enamel coating was chipped away by the door hinge. I was even more disappointed to discover that there were no plates bowls and cutlery in the room. Nor did it have a toaster or microwave which made preparing your own food extremely difficult. Last flaw I found is the temperature control in the room was barely average as the room continuously shifted between hot and cold all night. The room service speed and efficiency was excellent and the staff again faultless. Meals seemed a little overpriced but still super tasty! The underground carpark accessed by an extremely steep and rather intimidating driveway, seemed small shoving cars in like sardines. I checked in for a 3 night stay, but unfortunately mid the second night my partner got a call from home that meant we need to return north early. The Night manager was fantastic in assisting and organising early checkout and guiding me how to get a refund for the last night (which unfortunately means another agonizing phonecall to booking.com) Even thought i was not impressed by the room, i was incredibly impressed with the professionalism of the staff and management, which made the stay decent. Only recommendation would be give the rooms a revamp so they look atleast somewhat modern.

    « Wonderful weekend »

    We stayed at the Best Western Hobart over a weekend in August 2017. We arrived mid morning and the staff were kind enough to allow us to get into a room early so we could get started on our day. It's a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Salamanca markets and 10-15 to Battery Point. Room was clean with standard amenities, tea and coffee provided. Included breakfast is comprehensive with hot food, fruit, cereals and bread, my only suggestion would be not to fill up too much as you will want to leave room for all the amazing local produce!

    Stayed for 4 nights at this hotel and was very impressed. We arrived early and were able to check in which was good. The room (3rd floor facing the back) was very spacious - lovely comfortable King size bed, huge TV!. The bathroom needs a bit of updating and the exhaust fan hardly worked meaning after a shower you will need to wait half an hour before being able to see your self in the mirror! Room was great except for someone that likes a dark room at night there was allot of light that comes through corridor into the room as door has gap all the way around. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food at the restaurant was fantastic and room service very quick!!

    For the price we payed to stay here we were very pleasantly surprised . The staff from pre booking to checking out were fantastic and couldn't be more helpful. Special thankyou to Luke (reservations manager) for his extra help. The room was lovely and clean and the staff on the cleaning team are always seen to be working incredibly hard and are always happy to help you, kudos to them for all their hard work and your sparkling clean rooms!! We had our hire car parked in and out for the duration of the trip and did not once have an issue finding a park and always noticed multiple parking options. The view from the room was fabulous. We couldn't fault anything about this place and def couldn't fault the staff that work their, it was so great to always be greeted with a warm friendly smile. We had buffet breakfast at the restaurant and thought it was awesome with every option you can think of. Overall we loved every aspect of this hotel and would be happy to stay here again. Very surprised by the few previous reviews as they couldn't be further from the experience that we had here, guessing you will never please some people and I'm assuming it's these kind of people who wrote those reviews. Thankyou so much to all the staff at best western hobart for all your hard work and we will definitely be back

    « Not good! Go elsewhere! »

    The Pros: ======= Lovely reception & restaurant staff. Received a welcome drink and buffet breakfast was decent. Location was pretty central. Free car park (if you were lucky enough to get a space). The Cons: ======== Disgusting bathroom and very old room. The corridors smelt. The room smelt. It was crying out for a complete overhaul. The bathroom was so old and decrepit that I cringed each time I had to use it. Luckily we only stayed there for two nights. I couldn't wait to leave. The car park had very limited spaces that we didn't dare to drive out for dinner in case we couldn't find a car park when we returned. I would not stay there again unless they did major room renovations! This was our first time visiting Tassie and it didn't leave a good memory of Launceston!

We went to Freycinet who held $1 and also regularly stay at Wrest Point who hold 1c!! The Best Western certainly treat their customers like criminals with this charging policy.

    The staff was wonderful, but the hotel was a dump. The lobby area had been nicely renovated, but the rooms were awful. As soon as you stepped off the elevator you were hit with a terrible odor, mold I think. It never dissipated the entire stay. Dirty carpet, twin beds, horrible bathroom, no amenities. Fortunately the linen was clean. I went with a group tour and couldn't change hotels. I could barely wait for those 2 days to end. Stay somewhere else or wait until the rooms are renovated.

    I had quite low expectations, travelling for business so didn't put much thought into this choice. I must say this is a good location- esp. for anyone who might enjoy a brisk 20 minute walk up Elizabeth street to the State cinema. Pleasant staff. Truckle & Co. deli over the road is well worth a visit! Quite generic decor and disappointing bath (too small for a tall person like me) A pleasant surprise was the excellent LG tv, solid heating that didn't make the air too dry and very comfy bedding.

    « Sometimes I love you, sometimes I don't »

    I have stayed at the Best Western in Hobart before and thought it was great. A bit of noise to be heard but with a 24hr crime TV channel I didn't care. This time my stay was so noisy that I was woken up several times.I know people in general don't have respect but I've stayed in other hotels and I couldn't hear this much noise in them. This room was also under renovation but as they had a full house I ended up with a half renovated room so I should have complained then but I liked my previous stay so I didn't and they do not to update the rooms. I was disappointed as they do have comfortable beds but they should have offered a discount and I should have complained about it. Learnt my lesson.

    « An ugly building but a warm interior. »

    It's certainly not the prettiest or the most up-to-date city hotel but it ticked all the boxes that needed ticking for me. I stayed in Room 205 for 4 nights. The front desk were very helpful whenever I had a query. I used the gym twice. It was small, yet sufficient. I don't know if I would have enjoyed exercising in that small space if someone else had walked in, though. The bed was comfy but the pillow was incredibly thick. The showers were hot, hot, hot! I ordered room service one night (just soup and fries) and they were both really tasty. Parking was convenient (it would be better if it was free, though). Parking is apparently $10 per day. I was under the impression that I paid for it at the end of my stay via the ticket machine at the bottom of the lift, but when I went to pay for my parking it said "no payment required". I will check my credit card bill because I'm assuming that they took it off that. Finger crossed that that is all sorted.

    Location was very good; room was OK: housekeeping was patchy in respect of milk and bathroom items; breakfast was a waste of time and money! Onsite parking was convenient but it would hav e been much better if it were complimentary as parking in the city would have been a nightmare.

    « Wonderful Hotel in a great Location in Hobart,Tasmania ! »

    Have always wanted to visit Hobart Tasmania . I came down for the First time in Late June 2017 and was not Dissapointed . The Best Western hotel is well located in the City and parking is also reasonable either in the hotel or for me on the street . The Hotel Staff we met were all very friendly and although there seems to be a lot of Asian Tourists in the Hotel the rooms are all good sized with great comfortable beds and the Breakfast in the mornings is First Class ! If coming to Hobart I would definetely recommend this hotel for your stay .

    « Average Hotel »

    Location wise is ok as it is walking distance to Elizabeth Mall. But on a winter day u will not want to walk out, even though you need foods. Thus, I personally do not think the location is really good. Fortunately hotel has it own restaurant. Reception staffs are friendly and helpful. There is car rental right opposite the hotel. For airport transfer pick up, airport shuttle will stop you right in front of the hotel on arrival. Whereas to go to the airport from the hotel, you need to cross the road and wait at the opposite side of the hotel for the airport shuttle.

    « Not going back »

    Stayed in the family suite which has one king bed room and one room with two singles. One small bathroom. One fridge. No microwave or sink- which sucked for us with bub who had bottles. Very tiny kettle, which you have to fill in the bathroom sink. The sink is at crotch height and sprays water directly at your pants, violently, on even the lightest pressure. Not too keen on getting drinking water out of tap next to toilet. Bath surround was mouldy. Could hear every creak in room above us. Their computers don't ever seem to be working. They confused our check out date and called us asking why we hadn't left our room a day early- right in the middle of baby nap time - that was great. At check out, on the right day, computer system not working either so we still don't know how much out of pocket we are. Staff at desk and in restaurant were friendly. Bed very comfortable. Food at embers restaurant wasn't very good. Ordered room service first night, pizza, burger, chips. Pizza was burnt and not the one I'd asked for. Dessert was burnt apple something. Menu options small. Breakfast was ok, the usual stuff.

    « Could be improved »

    The room was old but in good condition and had modern furnishings. The TV was good and the space was quite extensive. But the bathroom was old. I really wasn't expecting a shower curtain in a room that looked so nice upon arrival. We also at least expected a toaster or microwave, when we arrived and saw there was only a kettle. The kitchen facilities were slightly exaggerated. Overall the room was okay, there was nothing that made the experience a bad one it just could have been better. The inconsistency and unexpectadness of quality lowered its rating. We would stay here again, now knowing what we're in for

    Looked for a medium priced hotel near the city centre and found a Groupon deal for 3 nights inc breakfast for a great price! Staff were all helpful and friendly, bed was comfortable with choice of 2 types pillows. With window open a little noisy but being winter not open for long! Parking at extra cost and a little tight at times and car on a slope to use the exit machine, take care. Will stay next time, decent restaurant.

    I picked the hotel only for its location but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of service. The staff were friendly and efficient at every contact. The room was basic but clean and renovated. I had a lovely view across Hobart city to the water. The restaurant was also quite good and the one night I had room service my meal was great. On top of all this, the hotel was also very well priced.

    « Worst Best Western »

    I stay at several Best Western's all over Australia for work and have to say this BW is the worst by far, the rooms are very poor quality, bathroom is so small you can barely move, the shower is terrible and desperately needs a renovation. My room in particular the balcony door doesn't even lock, the heater didn't work properly and the noise sounded like a plane taking off!! All BW's i have stayed at has allowed me a microwave in my room but this one would not, my main gripe is the quality of this hotel its terrible. I was warned the Quest or Grand Chancellor would be better but next month when I return it will not be to this hotel.

    « Comfort and Parking »

    The room was very comfortable and the buffet breakfast one of the best I have seen. The parking is linked straight by elevator to your level and traffic wise the hotel is easy to get to and central to the centre of the city. The only reason I am giving very good instead of excellent is that the rooms are not noise insulated and I found the traffic noise very loud. I am from a rural area and like the quiet at night. It disturbed my sleep a couple of times. I put sleep as average because of the noise, but the bed itself was great.

Should have asked When they relished there mistake they rang and apologized The only criticism I had was the pillows so many of them in the bed but all were very high they need to remove some of the high ones and replace them with medium and lower ones The bed was very comfy

    Booked 2 rooms with a Groupon deal, so the price was right.The rooms are a little tired and "of their time" but, really, how much time are you going to spend in your room when you've traveled from the mainland. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. The rooms are quiet and clean as was the bathroom. Slept like a log as did the husband. Daughter was late to breakfast as her bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was your typical hotel buffet, neither good not bad but plentiful. Would I stay here again, probably.

    Check-in is a breeze. Unfortunately our room doesn't have a great view, and they could not transfer us to another for they are fully-booked, which they made clear to us on our check-in. They gave us a free parking voucher instead, which we really appreciated. Our room, on the 1st floor is in need of refurbishment. The main bed is too soft, almost saggy feeling. The single bed is great, just the right feel to it. Bedding is crisp and clean. The ensuite does not have an exhaust and no heat lights. The room in general has an out-of-date feel to it. The room do not have bedroom slippers, no toothbrush/toothpaste. There is no hotel phone directory provided in the room, so we could not phone the lobby/restaurant/housekeeping, we had to get down to the lobby to ask. Really bad soundproofing in our room, we could hear almost everything from the other rooms, it was really bad when somebody flushes their toilets or had a shower, the sound easily woke us up. Air-conditioning unit is good and works well. The room is spacious which is good. Buffet breakfast has a good selection and the food is delicious except for the sausage, and it is fairly priced as well. Their undercover parking is secure, although the spaces are a little tight. There is water leaking from a pipe above the centre of the parking area near the elevators. It was a gush of liquid then it subsided, good thing we were not near it when it happened. We did not know where the water came from, it was just gross to see it. *it was like someone flushes a toilet from the ground floor and the water leaked down to the LG floor (hopefully it was something else).

    The motel was probably built in the 1960's and so rooms are not present style. Our room was satisfactory with good sized bed but rather small and the bathroom was tiny. So not up with more modern style motels. However, you get what you pay for!. The electronic room card system was unreliable and we had to update our card twice in order to enter the room. Breakfast was very good at a equitable price. Staff were very helpful.

    Excellent Location for attending the CBD, Wharves & Salamanca, good secure undercover parking. Excellent friendly service by everyone, from the reception to the service staff & bar/restaurant staff. We where in a 1st floor room which was a bit tired & worn, not a $300+ room, a step above a good motel room, holes in curtains & walls around the table area, tried the Tasmanian single malt whiskies, $12. & $18. shots in filthy glass (stomach turning grime inside the top 30mm), may have been unlucky, but the bar was not busy. Attended brekky at 8 am food was either cold or hard & dried. Auto coffee machine also needs urgent review, one step off a thermos flask. Place appears due for an upgrade but choice in central Hobart is limited. maybe go online for discount deal at this hotel.

    Staff although Pleasant, lacked training and customer service skills(or rather than inconveniencing customers get proactive and simply take the order). Check in was fine, went to room- which had a stale smell- I had to open balcony doors, tried ringing for room service, Phone did not work. Went down to reception- receptionist couldn't find order sheet then found (faded copy of one -obviously 4 of those to a page), ordered Breakfast, then told to go to Restaurant to order Dinner(Rm Service)- Male in charge not very friendly, seemed stressed, nor even a glimpse of a smile,, anyway placed the order. Dinner was Bland(Salmon) not even the drizzle of sauce had any flavour and Polenta + Dessert apricot/mango bake with a crumble on top, again Bland and reminiscent of hospital food.(Disappointing). Breakfast, a heap of food(literally) Scrambled eggs seemed to have been baked, then sliced into "soldiers" consistency of Polenta, mushrooms, small sausages, hashbrowns (packet). Hallway dark/dingy & carpets had huge stains. next day down to reception(phone still not working even though I reported it on the first day to Reception) to order Breakky, told to do this at restaurant who then told me to do this at reception(3 times) Gave up on breakfast. Ordered dinner. again disappointment bland, dessert chocolate banana pancakes which were burnt best thing about it was the "wood fired Marshmallow". All meals were a disappointment, hotel in dire need of a good refurbish and a very good clean, staff need Customer service training/given responsibility and have the ability to take charge and make decisions to see that customers are not inconvenienced.

    Arrived late after flight from Melbourne. Lady on repeception very friendly check in was quick. Rooms although recently refurbished still looked very old fashioned especially the bathrooms. Severe lack of sockets in room, only 2, one above each bedside table. Every time you wanted to use the kettle it had to be next to the bed, which I thought was exceptionally dangerous. Also although there was a table and chairs in the room, it would be no good to sit there and use your laptop etc as there was no power point nearby. Checkout was effecient and staff again very helpful in ordering a taxi for me. Although I didn't use the restaurant it looked very clean and modern and there were several people having breakfast. Can't fault the staff, just a little more thought into the needs of the guests regards room facilities required

    Property is on edge of CBD and website pics are misleading. Had a 7 night stay booked and checked out after first night. Not happy about getting charged a one night cancellation fee as well as they wanted a full day's notice. Guess I should have known in advance of my first night that their hotel is a dump. It seems like bad business to me when a guest is already unhappy enough that he leaves, but hey greed is greed. Hotel lobby is fairly nice but that's about it. Parking garage below hotel is Himalayas steep, small, hard to navigate and park in. Breakfast buffet is overpriced and selection minimal. Rooms are old and badly need updating. Hotel sits on 2 busy roads and the rooms are noisy. You will hear road traffic day and night.

The buffet breakfast was ok and there was a lot of food to choose from. It was a short walking distance (about 10 minutes) from Hobart's main attractions. The room was clean. The not so good bits - the place (inside and outside) looks like its still in the 80s. The room was noisy I could clearly hear the traffic and the pedestrian crossing lights going off, and the toilet strangely 'replenished' its water supply every 30 minutes). The bed was large but had a strange plastic sounding/feeling bit in the middle. Parking under the hotel was $10/day.

The room furniture was comfortable and has been updated in the not to distant past. But the makeover appears limited in scope. The bathroom for the room didn't look as though it has not been touched for sometime. There really is no excuse for a chipped enamel bath that is rusting, chipped paint on the bathroom door and a poorly repaired carpet. And why oh why do hotels find it so hard to keep the air vent in the bathroom clean? There's no excuse for heavy accretions of dust and dander on the air grille. This would be acceptable in a backpacker hostel but not when paying top dollar. In similar vein, there's a limit to what a hotel can provide for a continental breakfast that makes economic sense but providing just cubed melon as the sole fruit suggests complacency as does using the cheapest tea bags on the market. Would I make a return visit? Most likely not, I'd try elsewhere.

    « Nice comfortable hotel with convenient location »

    We were at the Best Western for three nights and it was very comfortable and clean. Included breakfast was very nice, but needed to order the coffee special as the coffee machine was instant. Close walk to most everything in Hobart.

    Great place to stay for a long weekend. Easy walk to shops, restaurants, markets and the pier. Staff friendly and helpful and it was great to have such a good restaurant/bar on sight too. Will come back!

    Bath room and room was very dated and I did not feel that it was very clean. I found a used cotton bud on the shelf near the TV when we first arrived. My other big concern was that I always open my window fully so that my room can be aired out. However, my room only had a small window (which did not open fully) instead of a full length window, door and balcony that I was expecting. I would have appreciated being warned about this as it really spoilt my stay at this venue. I doubt I will ever stay at the best western again and obviously I will never recommend it. One bright light is that your reception staff were very helpful and the beds were great.

    « Tassie Break »

    We arrived at the Best Western Hotel on Friday afternoon, driving from Cradle Mountain. The check in was fast and very efficient. Our room was on the 5 th floor facing the city and wharf area. Our room was clean and comfortable. Coming from Sydney we were amazed at the lack of street noise, no constant sirens, horns blowing or general traffic noise. There are many restaurants near the hotel and it is only a short walk to the wharf area. Asked for a blanket and it arrived pronto. The breakfast and parking is $10.00 per day extra. The breakfast was good and heaps of choices in cereals and fruit. I would stay here again as it was very quiet and near most things that we wanted to see. Our only complaint was the Embers Restaurant, went there and no one came near us to serve us. One chap told us to wait 2 minutes, then went on to serve new customers with drinks and completely ignored us, and the other was very busy. Went else where for dinner that night.

    « Great clean friendly hotel just off the CBD »

    Stayed at the Best Western on my most recent business trip to Hobart and found the hotel clean, staff were very friendly and the location is very handy to most amenities. Had a works burger and a beers on arrival and staff were great. Breakfast buffet was a little disappointing but mainly due to crowds wiping out most of the hot foods however very soon replenished. I will return. Two thumbs up

    « Nice hotel close to city centre »

    This is a nice hotel rooms are nice, smell clean and its central to everything, Not far from the mall and some good restaurants near by too. If you can grab a good deal a good one to book, I would stay here again.

    « Convenience, just minutes foot walk to Hobart Central Business District and waterfront »

    It is very convenience, just minutes foot walk to Hobart Central Business District and waterfront. Spend around 15 minutes' walk to Salamanca market (is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 0830 to 1500). You will enjoy the fun atmosphere and their creative things. Nearby there is many restaurants, cafés and bars. If you want to decor your home, good suggestions to visit Spotlight (Hobart) where is located next street from Best Western Hobart. Enjoy much also the breakfast. Especially many fruit tea to be chosen! It is a must to taste oyster in Tasmania ...extremely fresh and yummy!

    Wow. The first thing I must say is that our bed and pillows were sensational 5 out of 5, which is unusual for a hotel. We travel two or three times a year and most times the mattress and pillows are not good at all. This hotel is not really walking distance from the Main Street however they do have a car parking facility which is an extra $10 a day. The rooms are very clean and the staff are friendly. Over all in our opinion this hotel would be a 4 out of 5. We had a suite ( 2 large rooms ) because we took my mum and the total cost $221 a night. Thankyou

    Have just checked out after a lovely 3 day stay. On arrival we needed our room changed due to a very deep bath with a shower over it and as I have had a hip replacement it was in accessible for me. This was very quickly sorted out by the lovely receptionist. We ate in restaurant here three times and the food was amazing and that's saying something because I'm fussy. Housekeeping was outstanding each day upon our return to our room each day it felt like we had just arrived. Taxis are plentiful and there is a bus stop at front door with a hertz hire car agency across the road. Hotel has recently been refurbished with some bathrooms still to be done. The staff are what make this hotel great they go out of their way to help you. Thank you for a lovely stay

    « A great place to stay in Hobart »

    I was a walk-in guest and they sorted me out in no time. Very accomodating and a pleasant environment. Probably the worst part of the stay was the subterranean car park which was a challenge to negotiate at times. On the edge of the CBD, it had good access to the city and an easy walk to Salamanca Markets

    « Perfect for a short time »

    Myself and my fiance spent four days in Hobart in early October just as it had ticked over to daylight savings time, this took a little getting used to but we absolutely loved the being able to stay out with the sun and have a drink or two by the beach or at the Hotels restaurant. The Best Western was a great spot for us it was close to everything and a very easy drive to anywhere we needed to go, the room was amazing very clean and would definitely go back again. overall our short trip was made very comfortable and it was always nice knowing we could go home to such comfort and relaxation. As I had friends and family we didn't see many attractions but there are many to explore and I think if we had more time we would have. Overall a great trip and I would recommend anyone to go down and see what an amazing place Hobart is.

    « Comfortable enough »

    Located at the top of the city so reasonably okay to access city centre- bit of a walk though. Car parking is convenient with lower ground lift access direct to your room. Bit awkward when checking in as not much space for drop off. Efficient and helpful staff. Hotel is a bit dated but clean, comfortable and in good order. We had a room on fourth floor with a small balcony. Comfortable king size bed and warm well lit room. Nice bathroom and shower. Embers restaurant is downstairs.

    « Acceptable Stay »

    Recently stayed here for five nights. Very little sleep due to inconsiderate neighbours. Reception staff were incredibly helpful and kind as was management. Our room was on the first floor with a King and single bed. Unfortunately there was no balcony and the window opened only a few inches so it felt enclosed/claustrophobic. Management tried to move us but unfortunately it was the school holiday period and they were fully booked. We had people in the room next door who flushed their toilet approximately every 15 minutes between two and six am on three consecutive nights. We understand someone may have been unwell and tried to be considerate but three interrupted nights sleep made us a wee bit grumpy. Management and staff kindly offered to write a note to ask them to be mindful of other guests. It didn't stop them. The hotel is simple and clean but dated and with plumbing and noise issues. I would give the staff ten out of ten, food five out of ten and the premises a five out of ten. Great location as It was an easy ten minute stroll to the waterfront, shopping and market areas and also restaurants of north Hobart on Elizabeth street. Breakfast buffet was basic fare and I ended up just having coffee. One child had a piece of toast and juice and the other an apple and some melon. It just wasn't appealing. Room service after 9pm was very limited. We returned from a long day out and had dinner out and when requesting an ice cream sundae from the room service menu found we were 15 minutes too late. We were offered cheesecake but the kids just wanted ice cream. Thankfully crust pizza delivered in 15 minutes to the room and it was cheaper than the room service anyway. Same with pizza we had in the room another night. Call Crust they delivered in 20-30 minutes. We found Daci and Daci bakery was an easy morning stroll and breakfasted there and at zero Davey cafe.

    « Short stop over »

    A nice enough place but a bit dated. The shower was over the bath and the floors slippery so that was a minus. The bed was comfortable and King size. The room clean but basic. We could hear the children next door well into the night but on the whole not too bad. Parking costs are added on to the bill, felt a bit ripped off.

    « Central Location »

    We stayed in a family suite and the kids had a separate room so it was spacious enough for a hotel. The room was clean and staff were nice. The location is great as it is a short walk to city centre, restaurants, shops and sights. It is very close to the Farm Gate markets which are on every Sunday and a great place to get breakfast. The only negative about this hotel is that it is very noisy at night. Although that only seemed to bother me and not the rest of my family. If you are staying here on a weekend don't worry about paying for hotel parking as there is plenty of free parking on the street.

    I was a little disappointed in this hotel. Listed as 4 star I thought would be nicer. The service was fine but the room's decor was very tired. The bath was very small really only suitable for a child or very small adult. We could hear the plumbing of the adjoining rooms running till very late. On the positive side bed was very comfy and room very clean. Location was very convenient for city.

    Had an Executive King room for six nights. Hotel is well situated in Hobart. Rooms clean with a good self service laundry on the fourth floor. Nice resteraunt at ground level and with good food and staff such as Claire who knows her Tassie wines, well done! Bus departs outside the hotel for the airport numerous times a day. Only suggestion to make in order to improve would be to have a movie channel available to rent fairly recent releases on a nice lazy day!!!

    Location relative to waterfront not great. A fair bit of walking to get around. Evacuation during dinner for 30mins left drinks on tables - what should have been cold beers and wines. Didn't see any staff offer diners replacements. Staff were efficient but not overly friendly. Noise separation between rooms and corridors not as good as could be.

    A quick 5 day break in Tasmania - Hobart staying in a family suite. Reasonable sizes rooms - suite consists of small entrance hallway, 2 separate bedrooms, bathroom and small fridge tea making bench in hallway. Small balcony in each room, wardrobes and plenty of drawers/ storage. All pretty good. Bathroom is a little small with shower over spa bath but adequate. Car parking underneath available but $10 per day charge applies. Friendly helpful staff. Close to CBD and Salamanca area, 10 -15 minutes walk. Value for money.

    « They need a new door for the balcony »

    It is very annoying when stay in this hotel, and seems there is no door exist between the room and balcony. Almost like you live next to a high way, you constantly hear noise made by car pass by, I mean like 24 hrs. Think twice before you choose, whether what you paid is worth a good night sleep. And to the managements, you need seriously consider to do renovations, the sound proof of this hotel is very poor.

    « Very comfortable bed »

    As others have mentioned, this hotel is a little dated, but the beds must be new as they were very comfortable. The location is convenient - it is an easy walk down to the shops or the waterfront. I didn't have much interaction with staff, but the ones I did meet were friendly and helpful. I would stay there again.

    « Very dated & not good value for money »

    This Motel was pleasantly staffed, though customer service was nothing outstanding - almost average in fact. The Motel is very dated, just like Hobart itself. $199 for a basic room is totally over the top pricing - but to be slugged an additional $10 per night for onsite parking is just outrageous. I did not realise I would be paying top $ to step back into the 1970s!

    The Best Western in Hobart is just that, a Best Western. No frills, clean room, decent food at the restaurant and friendly staff. Was in town on business and choose the Best Western due to the price, which was very reasonable. If you are looking for a high end hotel, look elsewhere, this is a solid hotel but not five star location.

    « You pay for what you get! »

    It was my first time in Tasmania, Let's begin in Hobart. My reading various webpages and knowing of 'Best Western', it seems like a good choice. It was promoted as newly refurbished a balcony and mountain views. Maybe the walls have been freshly painted and possibly new carpets? (the reception area downstairs did have a clean modern styled bathroom).The balcony could fit 2 people standing on peeling paint, in a 2m sq area with the air-conditioning unit, overlooking Bathurst St, at eye level you could see the mountains. The rooms were tidy and cleaned daily, 2 people need 2 bathrobes NOT one to share and a bathmat changed daily also. The fridge is noisy, I woke in the middle of the night imagining a tsunami alert had gone off! The staff were professional and the downstairs restaurant was OK, we didn't try any but the 'Embers', restaurant offers wood fired pizzas inspired by various cuisnes even one for dessert.

    My partner and I stayed here for one night and were happy with where we chose. It's in the CBD, close walk to Salamanca, clean, tidy and staff were friendly. Hotel has parking and a restaurant for dinner and breakfast. Our bed was comfy, we got a king size room with a balcony. Balcony is quite small but if you're only wanting to stand out on it for a moment this is ok. We could of maybe put chairs out to sit but would of been quite squishy as the air-con unit sits out there too. Everything was clean in the room and presented lovely. Would stay here again for a quick stop-over.

    « Pretty good »

    The hotel is an average 10 minute walk to the main part of town. The hotel is quiet and the staff are pleasant. Not fussed on the breakfast as the hot food was not hot but there are always other places to eat. The room was clean and warm (I went in winter) and while they did try to charge me for use of the mini bar, which I didn't touch, they were polite enough to back down and accept they were mistaken. My only suggestion is to check your charges on leaving.

    « sleepless »

    My wife and I stayed over 3 nights. The first 2 nights had a few noises coming through walls but nothing to compare with our last night. The hotel caters for conferences and functions. There was a party in a room that faced the corridor which has the guest rooms. Until 2am we had noise and banging doors from this party. Because of conferences and functions the car park gets full and you have to find alternative parking. The hotel is clean, but in need of an urgent renovation. The bathroom has shower over bath with plastic screen , no exhaust fan. The walls need sound proofing and Management need to move functions to a floor that is away from guests. Cannot recommend this hotel on our experience.

I suggest Raspberry Fool on Bathurst St for delicious breakfast and coffee and attentive and friendly staff.

    « Aged rooms and noisy »

    We had two rooms throughout our stay, the first facing the road and the balcony door did not close properly. This made for a howling wind noise throughout the night and the road noise was very loud. We mentioned it to the front desk and we were relocated to another room at the back of the hotel. This was much quieter, but the room was still dated. The rooms were large enough to accommodate two people comfortably, and also enable some work to be done at the spacious desk. Some of the staff were fantastic, but one staff member that took our room service order was abrupt with no phone manner at all. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go locally through the CBD and to the water front dock areas. Overall, an average stay, and the costs reflect the quality of the rooms.

    Location is good, walking distance to the main town center. Room being put on a very limited efforts to maintain and clean up. Many individual hotels are much better on upkeeping the room unlike this hotel although it is a chained brand hotel.

    « Yawn! »

    We just had a three day weekend here, and regret the choice. This was a romantic anniversary for us, and I should have done more research first instead of grabbing a deal - which wasn't even that cheap for a budget grade hotel. I called the review "Yawn" for two reasons - First, the hotel is a little tired, and the state of the maintenance is mediocre despite the 'renovations'. The bed and TV were new and top notch, but why let guests stay in rooms which have the towel rail hanging out of the wall and the little balcony peeling in paint? A few minutes by a Handyperson would have these rectified instantly. Secondly the room was really noisy. The aircon was like a jet turbine, and the windows are not double-glazed and stopped no street noise 5 levels up from a busy street below (non-harbour side). So we didn't get any quality sleep with the traffic / street noise. The location is just on the fringe of the city, a 1km walk down hill to the docks and Salamanca Pl. Highlights were the front house staff attitude, undercover parking, room size and decor (except the wall art) for a budget hotel. As a romantic Hobart weekend hotel, I would not recommend. There are so many other funkier accommodation options that I regret not exploring.

    Chose Best Western as it offers great discounts for government employees. I was really impressed from the minute we checked in - staff allowed us to check in early and upgraded our room for free due to our length of stay (9 nights). This was a welcome surprise.

The carpark is also handy as we bought our car over from Melbourne.

    The room was basic, yet had a modern tv and a balcony (thank you!) I am not a fan of heating in hotel rooms so was able to open the door for some fresh air while in the room. The bed was the most comfortable I have been in at a hotel for some time. The car parking onsite was easy and at $10 per day was affordable. Was disappointed with the after hours room service menu, but being city central there are many other options still available. Very much would stay again, although, i hope by the next time they have safes in the room, maybe some sort of sound proofing under the doors.

    « Fridge problem and out dated »

    We had booked two rooms for two nights and found the place adequate. The only problem was the fridge in our room was more of a heater and caused the milk and deli items to go off, some $100 worth. On checking out we had informed th receptionist who advised us that she would like to offer us a free buffet breakfast on our return visit later that week. We returned later that week for a further 2 night stay and were initially given a twin room, instead of a king room, easily fixed though, however the room that we had, had a fridge that froze everything and the curtains were hanging off their runner, the balcony door did not lock and the back of the bathroom door was rotted due to excess spray from the shower. We took the offer of breakfast up, but observed the chef just putting freshly cooked items on top of already prepared food - felt if we had to pay, it would not be worthy of the $25.00 per head. Overall though, it was a two night stay, and the bed was comfy. Definitely in need of a makeover though. Also problems with swipe cards cancelling out

Its also a good hotel for business travellers. My wife and I will definitely stay here again when next in Hobart.

    « Best Western in Tasmania »

    Best western hotels - worse hotels I have ever been in four start ranks. I have been to both Hobart and Launceston's Best Western, rooms are old and smelly, bathrooms old and cheap looking. Carpets old and dirty. Everything is only functional, Not worth the price we paid. Hobart also facing a Main Street with no sound proof window, very noisy at night.

    This hotel is in a nice location within walking distance of the CBD, restaurants, MONA ferry, art galleries and museums. The staff were friendly and very helpful, quick to solve problems. The room was clean, big bed comfortable, nice aspect over the city. Bathroom could be updated, it's looking a little tired, and the toilet was hesitant to flush correctly!

    Location was excellent, good walking distance to city and harbour. Restaurant was good, wood fire pizza excellent, staff helpful and friendly. Room comfortable, a little makeover would be good, downside, you can hear the showers going in the rooms either side. Parking excellent and good value. Lovely restaurants in walking distance, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese and local pub.

    « Good hotel »

    Good hotel within walking distance to most art galleries, museums, and restaurants in Hobart's CBD. Friendly staff. We had an issue with the lock on our door, and it was fixed promptly. Only downside is the included wifi is woefully slow at 1.7MB/s download and 2MB/s upload. This area has had NBN since March 2015, so these speeds are unacceptable. Basic NBN speeds of 25MB/s should be standard.

    We booked a family suite for 7 nights at this hotel, and we are not coming back... The hotel is close to everything shopping centers, restaurants... But the room needs yo be refreshed especially the bathroom which is old and not clean enough. The hair-dryer was full of dust since we arrived until we left. The bathtub is that deep and not suitable for child and someone who got problem with their knees... It was the first time that we experienced a 4 stars hotel without safe inside the room and not responsible of anything missing in the room ( the hotel got safe in the reception). Never been down at the hotel's restaurant, we just ordered room service. I won't say it wasn't good but we just didn't enjoy the taste. If you like something modern, this place is not right for you...

    Quite adequately sized room on second floor with balcony. Though on the main street side of hotel noise was not a problem. All the usual amenities provided and well serviced daily. Carrying a back complaint means many beds cause problems. This rooms bed was extremely comfortable, a pleasure to return to after a cold nights Dark MOFO festivities. Very well located within easy walking distance of all central Hobart's attractions. Certainly happy to return there again and recommend to others.

    « City centre, comfortable and friendly »

    I have stayed here twice in past 2 months on business and each time had a fifth floor room with a view and a balcony. First trip room faced the water, second trip faced the mountain. On both occasions, rooms were quiet enough for a good night's sleep. Quiet aircon and bar fridge too, big plus. Good water pressure in the shower. Sensible and practical decor. Big beds and extras such as dressing gown, slippers, spare blanket. A table with 2 chairs (rare these days) PLUS an office chair and work space. Free and relatively fast WiFi. Importantly, excellent staff attitudes, from the reception to waiting and cleaning staff. The lounges, bar and waiting areas are roomy and pleasant. I'm already booked again next month.

    « My only regret is not being able to stay longer »

    As part of my delightful trip to Hobart, staying at the Best Western Hotel played a major role in delivering a pleasurable experience. I stayed in a standard room, on the fourth floor with a balcony looking out towards the ocean. The room was very clean and well presented while the service was immaculate, efficient and weren't afraid of delivering that extra step in providing excellent customer service. I highly recommend anyone that's stopping in Hobart to stop by the Best Western and stay a few nights.

    The retro furniture doesn't add to the décor. Beware of the hidden $50.00 per night and $10.00 per day car parking costs. I guess I'll find out when the bank statement comes what I have actually paid.

    « Below average »

    I cannot ? in good conscience ? award this any higher than two stars. This is like a motel from the 80's, and not in a good way. The blue, garish, molecular-sized bathroom (with polyester shower curtain) is possibly the worst hotel bathroom I've seen in years. And the room decor was straight out of a time warp. The laundry bags are black, plastic bin-bags. And not even strong, expensive bin-bags... cheap, and nasty bin-bags so that I thought my dirty clothes would bust a hole and spill through the bag. And you wouldn't think that Hobart would suffer from traffic noise... but my room was somehow able to miraculously amplify every sound from the street below. I have to give full credit to the staff working here ? the front desk staff (both checkin and checkout) and the restaurant staff were all really charming and helpful. So my disappointment in this hotel is 100% related to the facility itself, not the people running it.

    « Ok hotel, nothing special »

    We stayed at the Best Western for 1 night in June. I actually don't have too much to I say about it....it was ok but nothing special. I was a bit annoyed that we had to pay $10 for parking when there was free parking (free on weekends) outside and sort of wish the check in agent had advised us, but I guess we could have checked ourselves. Breakfast was a standard buffet of 3 star hotel chain quality...though having said that there was a fair selection of different foods. The room was reasonably clean but dated, and service was slow but effective. The best thing about this hotel is that it's within walking distance to the harbour and other Hobart attractions.

    « Budget friendly..... »

    You can often get great deals to stay here. The location is amazing and we never took the car out of the parking garage for the whole trip! The bedrooms have been updated nicely (sadly the bathrooms have not), the staff are super lovely and there is a small gym on site. Unfortunately the room that we had was right beside the traffic intersection and beeping traffic lights hardly lull you to sleep. This was not helped by the fact the sliding door to the balcony did not latch properly and all night the wind whistled through the gap. After two night without much sleep I am still ok with the price and location of the hotel but not in any hurry to return.

    « Decent hotel in the city »

    Best Western Hobart was value-for-money. The interiors were clean and spacious and the location was decent. The hotel is about a 15-minute walk from Salamanca Market and a bunch of restaurants near the harbour. As I was sick during the trip, the staff was also very helpful pointing my partner in the right direction for the pharmacy and eventually a doctor. Will stay again.

    Very comfortable king bed, room and bathroom were clean. Street parking is unrestricted over the weekend so we didn't need to pay for the hotel's parking.

    « Be Careful »

    This is not a bad Motel, but it is not helped by the people at reception. One of the ladies was excellent, but the other was a grump. It is a little overpriced, and the Restaurant is not quite up to standard as far as food quality goes. Whilst I would not recommend this place, I would class it as average and a little tired.

    « Best Western Hobart »

    We booked a Great Western Suite through hotels.com. We checked into our suite on the 7 May for 5 nights and the room was very tired to say the least. The fridge also woke us up at night due to the noise and we had to mop it out one morning as it was full of water. The room was also very noisy due to traffic and pedestrian crossing signals. We enquired if we would be able to change rooms if available. We were told there were other rooms available however as we were going out for the day the room would have to be still available on our return. We thought this was quite reasonable. On our return we dealt with the Duty Manager John. John told us we should have packed up our bags in the morning and vacated our current room as now all the other suites were occupied. John also said that no notes had been left by the staff member we spoke to in the morning about our wishes to change rooms. We then had difficulty accessing our present room, and once we did we found it had not been made up. We went back to reception and enquired why and suggested to them that perhaps we had been allocated the other suite. The receptionist then said there had been a mix up and yes we had been allocated the other suite. We are very much under the impression that John for whatever reason did not want us to have the other suite. This was rather obvious to us in later dealings with him. Incidentally the ?new' suite was far superior and quieter. We understand that we are staying at the hotel on a discounted rate however if the hotel does not want to offer these discounts why join hotels.com in the first place. On the other hand if the hotel is quiet as it was, why not promote it to encourage return business. We had made a reservation for 2 nights on our return to Hobart the following week which we then cancelled on our departure. We have stayed in Best Western in Europe and have had very positive experiences. Not the case with Hobart, which is a shame as most of their staff were excellent. Never again.

    Rooms need renovating - very much a cheap motel rather than a hotel Staff were a mix of helpful friendly girls and rather, unhelpful rude guys Good location, walking distance to everything in the city but above two car rental places and certainly not a particularly nice area The bathroom was pretty gross, tiny old shallow bath and old tiles and fittings There's no smoking allowed on the balconies or they say they'll charge a $200 'cleaning fee' fine Had three terrible nights sleeps due to the light coming in from the hall, the noise from the road and water moving in the pipes. I certainly wouldn't recommend a stay here unless it's a very cheap rate and you're happy with being in a Motel.

    « Good location, great restaurant, average everything else »

    This hotel is in a good location being only 15 minutes walk to Salamanca markets and the MONA Ferry. The restaurant is nice - lovely food and reasonably priced. Unfortunately there isn't much else really good about this hotel. The foyer has had a recent makeover which makes a fresh entry into the hotel The rooms however are a different story. Sadly in need of renovation the carpets are stained and ill-fitting (in the rooms and in the hallways) and in places paint has been chipped and black marks on the skirtings. While there is little outside noise (if in a room not facing the street) you can hear a fair bit of noise in the corridors and from adjacent rooms. Overall the rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. My room on the second floor had a view of the mountain (sort of) - and I was directly eye-level with a flat roof top forming part of the back of the hotel, along with the air-conditioning unit smack bang in the middle of the view. The roof top was littered with cigarette butts, bits of broken glass and electrical wiring off-cuts. Very unattractive and certainly not something you want to open a window to or look at. Except in the restaurant area there was very little attention given to detail. Staff on the desk were friendly and helpful. There is on-site parking but you have to pay $10 per night - or take your chances with street parking. The parking charge isn't made clear until you check-in. You pay extra for breakfast to be included and you pay a lower rate if you book breakfast on line to if you do it on check-in. Again not entirely evident on booking. Also be warned that a deposit of $50 per night is also charged to your credit card - refunded on check out - which is quite different to many other hotels. Some good and some bad with this hotel - overall I wouldn't say it was value for money.

I cannot fault this hotel and I am so relieved I chose to stay here during firstly for work then for leasure. I certainly was very well looked after. I had a delightful view of the city and full moon. The shower is far better than mine at home. I attended a conference dinner and staff were spot on with service. I will be back for sure and am very pleased to write this feedback as I know it's well deserved.

    The Best Western is well situated on Bathurst St, you're a few minutes walk from Hobart CBD and malls & shops, and a 10 minute walk from Salamanca Square, which is always vibrant and a good place to visit for a walk, drink or meal at any time of the day. The Best Western is an older hotel, but is decorated in a contemporary fashion, the rooms are clean and tidy and spacious, the bathrooms are a little tired and could do with a refit, but it's not a problem. The bar and communial areas are nice and comfortable with a number of couches and a outside tabled area. The bar and reception staff are friendly. The restaurant serves great pizzas!

    Stayed 3 nights. The room was clean but we thought the bed a little soft and found the place a trifle overheated (even with the window open). The room was comfortable nonetheless. Staff are welcoming and very helpful. We very rarely dine in room but did so on our first night and had pizza with accompanying bottle of wine. The pizza was excellent (potato, mozzarella, prosciutto for those who are interested). A few people have commented on the uphill walk - it is quite short and would only really be a problem for those with health problems that limit their mobility and/or exercise tolerance.

    Cannot comment too much about the service as we only spent two nights in the hotel. Definitely doesn't feel like a hotel / 4 star standard to be honest. Not impressed with the facilities.

    « Great comfort - terrible bath »

    I booked this room on the basis that it had a bath. I know this may not be a top priority on most peoples lists but I dont have one at home so when I book a hotel I look for one with a bath (who doesn't love a bath) Whilst the price was average for Hobart (expensive for what you get) the room was very comfortable and we had a very very good night sleep - love the one soft one hard pillow on the bed to select from. What really let this down was the bathroom. The shower was great but the bath was about as big as a laundry tub. Im not a tall man by any stretch but I couldn't fit in it. Was extremely disappointing. Everything else was great, nice and close to the city centre, good bar, good staff (didn't eat there so cant comment) and good TV channels too. Just so disappointing with the size of the bath - it really was that small. Worth the stay - just re-do the bathrooms please!

    « Ok Accommodation on the edge of the CBD »

    The hotel has been partially refurbished - i.e. they painted the rooms, new beds and a LCD TV, but not much else. Still has the 70's "shower in bathtub" arrangement and balconies too small to sit on (a lot of the space is taken up by a big AC unit). The rooms are clean and relatively quiet. Staff are very friendly and helpful which is always a good thing when travelling. One important thing to note regarding the location: Hobart is NOT flat as most tourist maps seem to imply. It is up a hill and if you want to spend your time at the wharf, market or CBD, you'll be walking up and down hills A LOT (about 15-20 mins to just about anywhere of interest - one way!). Being up a hill you may think "must have a good view", again you'd be disappointed, no view of anything other than the mountains in the distance or high rise buildings. I would stay again, it's a solid choice for a business trip (value for money, writing desk, table & huge comfy bed) but for a romantic getaway, there are probably better choices nearby?

    First impressions suggested this was a bleak corner of Hobart, however we soon found that the Best Western Hotel is a fine and comfortable place to stay, within easy walk of the main attractions.

The was once instance where the breakfast buffet food was cold but when staff were made aware, they were excellent - apologised and waived charges for the breakfast.

    This hotel is just outside of the main CBD so we thought it was well priced. Only a short walk into the main shopping malls and the wharf area. We arrived at about 4-30pm and found the hotel easily. Parking in the basement area near the lifts was not a problem and there are trolleys available to take your baggage to your room if desired. Room was comfortable and had a small balcony with a view towards Mt Wellington. Stayed 2 nights but only used the bar for a drink and ate elsewhere. There was a laundry on our floor which we didn't use on this occasion but would be very handy another time. Would stay again.

    « Strong artificial lemon scent! »

    Stayed here as part of a work trip. There was a strong waft of artificial lemon scent as I opened the door. Wasn't sure if this was part of the hotel fragrance but my nose quickly adjusted to it and didn't think more of it until I entered a colleague's room and there was no such smell. I wondered if it was just that my nose had adjusted, but as soon as I entered my room again I could smell it. I was only staying for one night, so I didn't bother kicking up a fuss about it but it definitely gave me a bad impression of the hotel. Ordered room service from the restaurant below attached to the hotel. We were on a tight schedule so needed the food to arrive quickly and on time. Queried the person on the phone which items to order over others and sure enough, the food arrived on time and accordance with the time she had told me. If I can remember correctly, the room service prices were the same as the eat-in-restaurant prices, so I found that very good!

    « Good location »

    The motel is located in the cbd and great walking distance to everything. Parking was $10 per night which is not bad compared to Sydney motels. The service was fast and friendly and when they ran out of my husbands favourite cider they ordered it in and it arrived the next day. That said again people need to be mindful of others and not to slam doors as you hear everything and our room was not the cleanest unfortunately. There was a thick layer of dust over the counter and tray which housed the mini bar wine and nuts. Was also a lot of hair in the bathroom. Locality wise and friendly service would bring me back.

    good location,exellent helpful staff,unfortunately rooms that face Bathurst street cop a fair amount of traffic noise in the morning which woke us up often with noisy cars and trucks passing.

    « Excellent value for money! »

    I booked this place around 5pm for that same night $150.. Spacious clean room and bathroom. Comfy bed but the pillows are too big they hurt my neck.. Restaurant is not too expensive and the best meal we had in hobart. Room service is available- we got a cheese platter. Buffet breakfast was $24 which is reasonable.. But $19 for cold buffet (cereal and fruit) seems a bit steep. Receptionists were very friendly. Only problem that needs addressing is the wifi is extremely slow.. Overall exceptional value for money would definately go back!!

    « Hobart stay spoilt »

    We love Tasmania and our first visit to Hobart was greatly anticipated so it was really disappointing to find our choice of hotel was not up to standard. We have stayed in Best Western hotels before and they have been ok, this one however was not. I am complaining about this as it was the most expensive of all the places we stayed over a 2 week period and was the worst (no complaints about any of our other accommodation). The room was not clean especially the bathroom which needs an update, shower over a bath can be an issue and the bath surface was slippery, no bath mat provided. We told reception of our issues and were told we should have let them know sooner, we didn't expect an unclean room on arrival and it should have been cleaned properly over that 3 day period, lucky we took photos to show staff who as it turned out were not so interested. On a brighter note the food was really good, room service excellent. Overpriced for what we got, won't stay here again.

    « Centrally located »

    Spent a night here and it was more than I expected. We were given a room with a king size bed together with an adjoining room with 3 single beds. The only drawback was the 4 of us had to share one t&b. Breakfast buffet was better than I expected . staff was generally helpful. Hotel centrally located in the cbd area. We were charged $10 parking though for the day which I found strange. Room charge was higher than I would have thought.

    « Hobart's Best Western. »

    This is my first time in a Best Western Property. They were nice enough to give a diamond status. I love the location, a short walk to everything, just the way i like them. The front desk was really nice and really helpful. Pointing out the nice places to eat and visit. The room was cosy and for the price i paid, it was a steal. I would recommend this property for those visiting Hobart.

    « Fantastic service! »

    We stayed here for 3 nights on our first ever visit to Tasmania. Although the rooms are quite basic, they were clean and well equipped. By our 2nd day, we realised the toilet in our room was not functioning properly. We reported it at reception, and after being accessed it was discovered it would need to be replaced. As they were fully booked they couldn't move us to another room, but instead gave us the key to a room near ours that we could use for the night (it was due to be occupied the next day, hence we couldn't swap to this room). They also gave us complimentary breakfast for the next day to apologize for the inconvenience. When we returned once the toilet was replaced (which was done in a matter of hours whilst we were out) they had left us champagne and chocolate, plus the offer of another free breakfast!! We honestly could not fault the service offered to us for this inconvenience.

    « Offensive and disgusting »

    We too relied upon TripAdvisor's review, and have now learned our lesson-never again. Appalling the state of room 209: this room and had not been dusted, bathroom not cleaned, chairs grey with dust , TV cabinet, side tables, ?snowflakes? of dust everywhere, carpet alongside of furniture and walls, state of beds-wow!!!. Another story!!! We called reception immediately, they sent us housekeeper, think it was Lorraine, who thanks to her, got it going. Reception offered free breakfast!! No thank you.We did not even want glass of water in that place. Unfortunately we were time poor first 2 days but moved out as soon as we could;we are deeply offended that hoteliers could treat guests with contempt, take the dough, run the place not answerable to anyone? Health authorities should definitely pay them visit. Message to others: Please do not write reviews that are misleading. How was this place given any positive reviews is beyond belief. Pull it down, rebuild. Go and visit other hotels to see how its run.

    « Comforable and well located »

    We stayed here for three nights on a recent motorcycle trip from the mainland. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the hotel is located within easy walking distance of the CBD and the waterfront. The laundry facilities were handy also. The only slight negative from a motorcyclists perspective was the rather steep driveway and boom gate. Having to fart about with the parking ticket while holding the bike on a steep slope was *fun*. We ate at the hotel restaurant "Embers" on one night, I have posted a separate review.

    The best thing about this ageing hotel was the bright and cheery service. The rooms are OK but very expensive for what you get. But it seems that all of the accommodation in HObart is heading this way - nearly on a par with Sydney prices. Bed was too squidgy for me.

    Good location, opposite Auto Rent Hertz, which is very convenient if you need to rent a car! Quick and pleasant experience on check-in and the room was very comfortable. The only thing missing was shower gel (shampoo and conditioner only) but fortunately I had brought my own. Parking was at a premium, as the hotel was almost full, but I simply parked opposite in a loading zone (at no charge) and left before 8am the next day.

    Rooms would really need a renovation. Where ever you look, you see things that should be fixed. Plus there's hardly any sound proofing between rooms... I chose the place because of the balcony - well it's uselessly small and crapy. With these prices you would really expect something better!

    « Comfy, but the food is pricey »

    I really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were more than adequate for the price we paid and they were very clean. The free wifi was excellent also. The only downfall was that the food was quite pricey in the restaurant down stairs. $19 for continental breakfast (not including coffee) seems like a lot of money if you're only having a piece of toast and a bowl of cereal. I would still recommend the Best Western in Hobart to any travellers regardlessly.

In a great location, we enjoyed free parking, free wifi and the bar has free canapés at happy hour. Every room has a balcony which is such a nice touch with many hotels not even offering opening windows! The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on, and the linens and doona were very high end. The room had a huge, new TV also. The bathroom was clean if not a little plain and old. The staff were super friendly, and the food we tried in the bar and from room service was delicious. I honestly can't recommend this place enough. It exceeded our expectations at every turn.

    « Good, central hotel in Hobart »

    My husband and I spent 4 nights here recently and found the hotel to be pretty good quality, better than expected to be honest. The rooms are nothing fancy but very livable and very clean. Nice in size with a table and chairs, closet, coat hangers, iron, hairdryer. Bathroom not huge but very nice. Clean towels, hand towels, face cloths and foot towels and amenities re-stocked each day. The bed my friends is nothing short of amazing. We will come back just for those beautiful King Coil beds. What the hotel lacks in fancy makes up for it with an excellent bed and a good nights sleep. Sure there are outside noises, people walking in the hallways, doors slamming and kids running but that all settles down come bedtime and the city itself quietens and everything is just right.

    « Central accommodation - comfortable »

    We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2016. The large king sized bed was very comfortable, and the room was sunny with views. The bathroom had a shower over the bath (which we liked). Very clean with very thorough house keeping. You have to pay $10 extra a night for secure under the hotel parking. There weren't a lot of spots, but we always found a park. We had room service on the first night. It was handy, but prices weren't cheap (as you would expect). There is a pizza option if you want to save your pennies. The hotel is very central. On the second night we walked a couple of blocks into town to grab some sushi takeaway. There is also a mini fridge, table with 2 chairs. We ran the air conditioning all night. Recommended.

    « Great Attitude »

    On a recent Business trio to Hobart I stayed at the best Western on Bathurst Street. The room I originally had on the 3rd floor was facing Bathurst street which was very noisy. On top of this there was a lot of noise like screaming children and loud talking in the corridor I went and asked to be moved and this is where I have to give 10/10 to the reception staff. Even though they were heavily booked they found me a room higher up at the back without any fuss or attitude. This certainly is a brownie point for them. The food was quite delicious but the bathrooms could do with some upgrades but really that is a minor point as they were very clean. Over all quite a good stay..

    « nice location, hotel is a little tired »

    The hotel is within walking distance to the harbor, on weekends to the Salamanca outdoor market--very worth doing. The bed was comfortable, the Wifi was good, there wasn't a safe in the room, we faced the street but it was quiet at night. The rugs in the room were on the shabby side and the room needed a facelift. The staff were friendly and the breakfast in the morning was good as was the bar.

    The rooms are comfortable, not flash but comfortable. Shower pressure is weak, bed is comfortable.

Close to everything.

    « Walking distance to many things »

    Not a short walk to many things, but a reasonable distance. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were allowed to park our car underneath and explore the markets while we waited for our room to be ready (an hour before the usual check-in time - bonus!.) Our unit was 2 rooms and this was excellent for our family. King size bed was great, although all the pillows were enormous!! Towels were luxurious. Mini bar wasn't overfilled so we had room for our own snacks. Unfortunately there was quite a lot of street/car noise during the night - the sliding glass doors didn't really seal all that well (looked like original doors from 20+ years ago) but once the air-con was on it was pretty good.

    « Dungeon »

    It felt like we were staying in a dungeon in the room we were put in at the Best Western Hobart as our view was blocked by ugly brickwork so it was lucky we had only booked for one night. The room was clean though. Staying here added nothing to our trip so my advice would be to avoid staying here if you can.

Staff are friendly and there is ample car parking. Hotel is perfect choice for anyone running the Cadbury Marathon as the bus leaves from the hotel door. They also do early breakfast for runners and a pasta buffet the night before. Would stay here again even if not involved in Marathon as the room was excellent.

    « Great Base for a Holiday in Hobart »

    We stayed here for 5 days as part of the Cadbury Marathon and the hotel was a great base from which to explore Hobart. This is not a luxury hotel, it's a mid-range hotel with five star service. Every member of staff we encountered at the hotel from housekeeping, to reception to night staff, were polite, helpful and accommodating. We upgraded to an executive room with a king bed, a huge TV and a Nespresso machine. There's also a small fridge/mini bar, a kettle and tea, creamer and sugar, however, bathroom amenities are a bit thin on the ground so you'll need to bring your own toiletries. The rooms themselves are clean but unremarkable, and the bathroom is a bit tired and small, although the shower pressure was fabulous. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in and from the rear of the building, on the fifth floor, it was super quiet. Wifi was good both on phones and laptops. We didn't have a car and were able to explore all of Hobart on foot. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the waterfront and a 15-20 minute walk to North Hobart with a heap of cafes, shops and restaurants on your doorstep. For value for money, I think this is hard to beat.

    « Comfortable Stay in Central Location »

Everything we wanted to see and do was within walking distance from the hotel. Also, there were two car rental companies close, one across the street and one right behind the hotel. There is also a restaurant in the hotel, but we did not use it. We are also staying here on our return to Hobart after touring Tasmania.

    « You get what you pay for (in a good way) »

    We booked the rooms that were adjoined and had two twin beds in one room and a double in the other which worked well for my husband and me to share the latter and my mum and her friend to share the room with the twin beds. So all in all.... There's nothing incredible about this venue but there's also nothing wrong with it. Staff were friendly enough, room was clean and tidy and spacious enough. The main issue with this hotel was how noisy the main road is! It sounds like there is someone crossing the bloody road every five minutes, all night!! There are also noisy trucks going by in the mornings, which is hardly the hotel's fault but they could probably do with upgrading the windows to sound proof them a little more. Central enough location, though you might want to stay closer to the water if you want to be amongst all the action. So... for what you pay, this is a good budget hotel for a quick get away!

All the staff where extremely nice and we where even able to check in a couple of hours earlier. We ordered room service a couple of times which was quite reasonable and the quality and portions were great value. While it is about a 10 minute walk down/up a hill to Salamanca and the Wharf it wasn't to difficult and a taxi was only $6-$7 back to the hotel.

    « Nice Hotel, But Way Over Priced »

    Stayed two nights on a short trip to Tasmania. Received very little for the excessive price which was high season but still not worth it. Per night was NZ$329.00 (US$240.00). Did not include breakfast, no Best Western Rewards Program member perks except the points and may not get those. Front desk help and answering questions poor to average, but the night desk clerk went of his way to be helpful. Hotel has a policy to not change US $ for NZ $. Room nice and clean. No coffee maker in room--did have Nespresso, not sure that is coffer, but no sugar and creamer. No tea. Bar tenders attentive and helpful, so that was one of the few pluses. Good location. Free WiFi.

    « Nothing fancy but a perfect base for tourists »

    This hotel is looking a little old on the outside but the inside is much fresher. If all you need is a comfortable bed for the night in a central location, it goes above and beyond in serving its purpose. The rooms have large TVs and reliable free Wi-Fi. Our view from room 227 (there are 6 floors) was nice, as seen in the attached photo. Two things to be wary of are the hot water in the bathroom was extremely hot - too hot - and you may feel compelled to pay $10/day for on site parking because of the parking restrictions on the street. Parking should be complimentary with a stay. The buffet breakfast was ok but the scrambled eggs were disgusting. The staff were all fantastic. The gorgeous Anna at reception instantly moved her car so that I could park under cover. Brett, a duty manager, loves a chat and was really helpful with my queries. For an awesome feed, head to the Shamrock Hotel down the hill about 80m away. I'd be happy to stay here next time I'm in Hobart.

    The Hotel offered a decent amount of leisure and relaxation along with excellent service from the restaurant's bistro. It is recommended you definitely try the restaurant if you decide not to stay a night, but if you do, all the merrier as there's a short walk back to bed with a full stomach.

    « Dated, but clean »

    We were on the look out for hotel rooms with balcony. There were not many such options in Hobart. Best Western Hobart looked half decent on the web, so we went for it. Room was a good size, large king size bed, huge TV, though bathroom was small. Decor was dated. They had one of those dreadful combined bath and shower, which I thought was one of the biggest design mistakes older hotels made. Shower gel not provided, only bar soap. Door lock was wonky, handle on the outside gave way several times during our stay. Balcony door lock was not functioning properly as well. Though I must say, Reception responded well and sent someone to fix that. The hotel hardware left much to be desired. The saving grace was definitely the service, from Reception to Housekeeping, which earned them the 3 rating.

    « Perfect Accomodation and Great Location »

    My husband and myself travelled from Perth WA to Hobart on December 28th. We were made to feel very welcome on initial contact with reception staff. Because we were too early to check in having arrived around 11 am the staff were happy to store our luggage so that we could go out and explore until check in time 2pm. Also very happy to give us a quick layout of the CBD area so we could wander down to Constitution Dock to see some of the yatchs that had arrived. We stayed in a Suite - 1 King Bed on top floor of hotel, the accomodation was extremely comfortable and very clean and had Balcony views of the CBD from which we were able to enjoy the fireworks on New Years Eve. We stayed at the Best Western for 8 nights and were very impressed by how helpful all staff were that looked after us during our stay. The location was brilliant very close to the CBD area easy walking distance to see the sights around Central Hobart - Harbour Area, Salamanca Place, Visitors Centre and lots of great eating out options. We were very impressed with our stay here and all staff are to be complimented on their wonderful customer service - to us it was the perfect break. Thanks Best Western for making it so.

    We arrived in Hobart on Christmas day to a fully booked hotel. We were greeted by very friendly and helpful reception staff, who volunteered the map of the surrounding to assist us in our exploration of Hobart on foot. This is a basic hotel but it has everything we need. The room is spacious and clean. There is a fridge and television. Free wifi is available in the room (and in all the common areas of the hotel). Only complaint for me is that the lighting in the room is rather dim. There is a restaurant where we had our breakfast on the 2nd day (a Sunday). Fairly decent range of food. There is a small gym (a few treadmills and a resistance training station). Unfortunately, we have no time to use it for the 2 nights we stayed there. The hotel is located relatively close to the city centre. Walking will only take about 5-10 minutes, making it convenient. What's good is the Budget car rental shop is just around the corner, making it very convenient for us to pick up the car before we had out of Hobart. The atmosphere at the hotel is relaxed despite it being fully booked. Overall, a very good experience.

    Useful base for Hobart and surrounding area. Convenient in that it has useful car parking; Salamanca is a good 15 min walk away, but the street has a few nice eateries as well, and it's easy to get in and out of within Hobart. That's about as far as the positives go, sadly - old building, feels run-down, restaurant uninspiring, plumbing audible through the walls, Internet very slow when everyone is on it, general lack or cheerfulness. Booked as everything was full for taste of Tasmania, was ok as a bed and not much more.

    I booked Best Western as it seem the only place with vacancies over December/January period. Got a family room on level 2. The property is pretty run down and quite old and dirty. Not what I would have chosen if I had the choice. The location is also not the best. Despite all this, I was prepared to put up with it for a couple of days. BUT, today is the third day and the room attendant did not change the bed sheets for the third day in the row!!!!! How bad is it when you're paying $400+ per night? When we reported it to the reception, the response was the suggestion box! This place is the pits!! Do not stay here if you have the choice.

    This was my second visit here, so I knew what to expect, a comfortable, clean well appointed room with everything that I needed. And that was exactly what I got! A comfortable bed, clean bathroom, everything I needed to be able to work away from home.

    Excellent hotel with great location - able to walk to Salamanca Market and the wharf area. Rooms and standard of cleanliness good , Problem with the bar fridge rectified quickly by staff. Sunday breakfast excellent deal.

    « Disappointing breakfast »

    Great hotel, great bar and evening restaurant. Pizza was wonderful. Very Asian focused breakfast. One thing I can not stand is a hot buffet breakfast with bacon that looks like it's been in the microwave or steamed. This was the case. No option for eggs to be cooked to your liking. A suggestion would be to have someone set up to do this. As the hotel is heavily favoured by Asian tourist, they would also like this option. They love an omelet especially when there are Asian ingredients to choose from. Small addition for a big impact.

    Getting a bit old and needs some refurbishment but on the whole quite satisfactory. We were upgraded to a family suite which was good as there were 3 of us. There was live music in the bar on a Friday night but it was a bit loud. Our steaks were a bit tough with salad that was mostly leaves.

    « Amazing Food »

    Both the customer service and food were absolutely amazing, perfectly how the all the food blended together tasting marvellous. All food beautiful and fresh, the mango and avocado with the salmon was to die for. And of coarse all see food at the best Western was marvellous.

    Good hotel - busy with conferences. Good rooms - but noisy from traffic in mornings. Free unreliable wi-fi. Clean & comfortable. Friendly staff. Good restaurant for night time meals and buffet breakfast.

    « Staff great. Room tired. »

    I've just stayed here for 2 nights on business. I found the staff to be very good. Professional. Helpful. Friendly. The breakfast is good. The restaurant for dinner was very good. My gripe was that the room was tired and needed refurbishment. Paint worn. Bathroom, fixtures and furniture dated. The bed was comfortable on the plus side. I believe i got value from the quality of the staff. I don't believe i got value from the quality of the room. Safe travels.

    « Very central and very comfortable »

    Stayed in a balcony king room for 3 nights on arrival in Tassie then again for a night before departure. Very comfortable bed and room. Shower over bath. Easy walking, but there are hills, to the central shopplng area. A little further to Constitution Dock. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Enjoyed the free wifi. Would definitely come again.

    « Clean, convenient and friendly. »

    Driving into Hobart from the airport for the first time, the Best Western Hotel was easy to find as long as you were aware of the one way streets beforehand. Throughout our stay the staff were friendly and helpful. It was easy to walk from the Hotel to many points of interest and the main shopping precinct in Hobart. The Hotel presentation was basic (it epitomised it's era) and catered for groups, many of whom were from overseas. This added some interest to our stay. Rooms fronting Bathurst Street tended to be noisy and the Hotel would benefit from some renovations, particularly to reduce the noise emanating from other parts of the Hotel (especially above us - 3rd Floor). Also removing the baths would make access to the showers much easier for older guests. However, overall it was clean, convenient, had a good dining room and treated guests like they were important. The nearby Sunday morning Grower's Market was an added bonus.

    « Basic but friendly »

    We stayed here in March this year for our Babymoon holiday - room was clean and very comfy (had a great night's sleep) the property itself is old (it was around when my parents were kids) but has been renovated and made over a number of times - the bathroom of our King Room was rather small (being heavily pregnant!) and dated but was clean and functional - otherwise everything has been modernised and is super clean. We had free wifi during our stay which was very useful. Location was great just a walk down the hill to the mall and other attractions like Salamanca. Plenty of on site undercover parking available. Staff were super friendly and very helpful!

    « Nice Location »

    Stayed several night at the Best Western Hobart. Nice location, just a few blocks from the shopping center and docks. Friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms with comfortable beds. Free wi-fi was good most of the time but the drinks and snacks were a little overpriced. Nice restaurant. You do hear some road noise however. Would stay here again.

    I enjoyed this motel. It was very comfortable; the staff are friendly and helpful; and location is ideal. Parking for a large car is a bit tight (and expensive), however it was good to have a secure area. I just LURVE their happy hour at the bar .. oh and the bar staff are supreme

    « Quick Holiday »

    This hotel is within walking distance to the city. It would appear it has had a facelift. The rooms are adequate in size, bathroom needs some updating, however. Shower curtain over a bath in somewhat old hat, handbasin had a large crack in it, and only one piece of soap for two was certainly not appropriate. Staff were happy to supply more. It is a bit noisy due to being on the main drag, but that is to be expected because of it's situation on a busy street. The restaurant attached to this Hotel is very good.

    « Old, basic, wouldn't stay here again »

    Stayed here on business to attend a conference, not through choice but necessity as other hotels were fully booked during this busy week in Hobart. Let's just say that this town needs to significantly increase its capacity and quality of accommodations and conference venues. This motel is very very basic. It is old, reasonably clean but not nice at all. Positives: - small basic gym for a quick workout - friendly staff - good restaurant (Embers) Negatives: - questionable hygiene (a chair in the room had an old smear stain in the middle of it that looked and smelt like faeces) - seems to attract unsavory characters - quite a walk from town and not easy to hail a cab unless you book and allow enough time - room and bathroom furnishings are poor quality and need refurbishment - room faced the main road and the glass balcony doors are thin and don't block out the traffic noise at all - room door is thin and poor quality and can hear everything going on in the hallways - personal security for me didn't feel very good for the reasons above Overall I wouldn't stay here again and wouldn't recommend it.

    « Convenient but in need of a little TLC »

    The hotel was conveniently situated within walking distance to the wharf area but in need of a little TLC. Only 1 of the guest dryers was working for the 4 days we stayed and some of the lighting was not working in the dining room. However our overall stay was good with the staff compensating for the other problems. We would stay again

    « Not green enough »

    In view of Tassie's globally green image, was disappointed to see that shampoo provided was made in PRC. I realise BW is a chain with bulk supplies but a locally sourced product would have been appropriate. Also, I would like to see receptacles for recyclables readily available for guests. Travellers generate a lot of waste - papers, tourist literature, bottles, cans - all recyclable.Would be great if BW could do the maths and calculate how many tonnes could be saved from landfill .Their Australian website states that approximately 400,000 guests stay at BW per night. Time for hotels to take the environment into consideration. From BW's point of view worried about the bottom line, a responsible attitude towards the environment would enhance their image

    « Visiting Hobart with friends »

    While visiting Hobart with some friends we stayed a night at the Best Western hotel. The rooms were of a good size with a very large and comfortable bed. The bathroom was good although maybe a little dated. The staff at reception were very helpful and attentive. We did not eat at the hotel, having ventured out in the evening, and leaving early the following morning. Although we had forgotten our Best Western Rewards Card the receptionist kindly looked up our details to load on our points and provided us with our Rewards number just in case we were staying at another Best Western during our travels. We would be happy to stay here again.

    « Hilly Hobart »

    Hotel is absolutely fine although somewhat uphill from the city centre amenities and that could be a problem for some. On the other hand a very quit location for sleeping. There were more interesting restaurants in the Salamanca (quay side) area offering a greater variety of choice.

    « Not really 4 star »

    My wife and I had a 3 night stay here in late October 2015. We arrived reasonably late on a Friday night. After check in, we entered the lift lobby to be advised by a note on one of the two elevators, that it was out of order. We thought it would be fixed by early next morning and to our dismay, it was still out of order on the Monday morning we checked out so every time you wanted to use the elevator, there was a 5-10 minute wait!. There were a number of tour groups staying in the hotel over the duration of our stay which was good for business, but not so good for the guests due to this constant waiting. Our room was fine but there were no electric blankets. If it's one thing you need in Tassie, it's one of these (even though it was late October, it was still quite cool). One television in the gymnasium only had a picture but no sound. After advising the reception desk, a fairly lame effort was made to fix it, but to no avail. Some form of apology would have been appropriate, but nothing!. Best Western is an international chain of hotels and we expected better for the price they command.

    « Well located, could use a refurb. »

    A short 2 night stay with the girls, this property is in a great location within walking distance to salamanca, shops and restaurants. The staff were friendly and very helpful however the room could use a little maintenance, our cards didn't unlock the door and the maids had to let us in numerous times, the bathroom basin kept filling up with water after just running the tap for a short time. The beds were super comfy but the pillows a little hard. The free parking is great however after 10am you need to call reception for access to the lift however there was no answer and we were forced to walk up to the front entrance. Overall not bad for the $$.

    « Very central »

    An easy walk to the Salamanca market, ferry points if you want to visit MONA or go on a cruise, and easy walk to shopping. Staff were incredibly helpful and our room was spacious and comfortable. Our exterior door was a bit rattly when the room door was opened. Bathroom a bit dated with shower over bath (all King rooms have this apparently) but clean. Room serviced daily and we got a good deal being RACV members and staying 4 nights. Brekky available in restaurant downstairs with a special deal on Sundays. One of the lifts wasn't working toward the end of our stay and the staff couldn't have been more helpful getting our luggage into the carpark for us. Parking available for an extra $10 per night.

    « Average »

    This hotel is in a good location & the rooms are a good size but apart from a big bed, great tv & two nice lamps..very bare - there is no desk in the King Balcony room despite what the description says & the two uncomfortable chairs have obviously just been pulled up from the conference space. You will have to pull the tv away if you want to plug in the kettle which you will struggle to fill. The bathrooms are very small & old & the hotel supplies you with cheap toiletries like 2 in 1 shampoo conditioner. Don't expect to use the balcony, there's no view or privacy & they are very close to the road. The road noise is a real issue and the glass clearly isn't double glazed. I definitely wouldn't recommend this hotel to families or business travellers due to the lack of facilities and after being woken up at 2am midweek by a very loud drunken brawl in the hallway. The staff were all very lovely & the full buffet breakfast was pretty good for $22.50. This could be a great hotel but Best Western thus far have done a very half hearted job of renovating since it was a Mecure.

    « Good location and friendly staff! »

    Stayed 2 nights at the Best Western Bathurst St Hobart. Good location, easy to walk to most attractions including Salamanca Market, Hobart waterfront, shops and restaurants. Rooms a simple and basic (only criticism they could do with double glazing) not really a major problem as Hobart is pretty quite after midnight. The friendliness and courtesy of all the staff is a stand out! Also ate at the restaurant "Embers" which was excellent!! again the waitress was amazing.

    « NOT FOUR STAR ! »

    We booked this hotel based on it being rated Four Star on all the web booking sites, but we have been disappointed that the quality of the room we have been given is not what one would expect in a four star hotel. While the positive point we have noted is that the bed was comfortable, lots of other aspects are lacking. I believe you can often judge the quality of a restaurant by the quality of its napkins, I also suspect you can be guided on the quality of a hotel based on its toilet paper! In this case the toilet paper was poor - thin and tears the wrong way. The toilet hasn't been upgraded in about 40 years, the toilet seat is about $15 in Bunnings. The shower diverter button was sticking. I reported it. A guy came and sprayed WD40 on it but the next day if stuck again. The hook was falling off the bathroom door. The door was 63cm wide (normal doors are 80-82cm). The ceiling in the room was pebble-dashed concrete - straight from the 1960s. The bath towels are so small they just about fit around me - and I'm not very big! I complained about the quality. The clerk said he would see what he could do, but nothing happened. Tonight is out last night so hopefully our next place is better.

    « Best Western, Hobart Tasmania. »

    In a ten day stay with the Best Western in Hobart, we were very impressed with the courtesy of the staff, the efficiency & high standard of service given, nothing was a trouble. Should we return to Hobart, we would have no hesitation in returning to the Best Western, Bathurst St. Hobart. Just an easy walk away from CBD, the Salamanca market, restaurants & coffee shops. Adventure tour companies will pick you up & return you to hotel. Double decker bus does a circle trip to points of interest. It's all there to enjoy. Edna & Fred Leech.

    « Great Place to begin our tour Downunder »

    After a 27 hour trip from the states we were looking for a hot shower and a sot bed in a quiet room This hotel filled the bill. Keys were waiting so we could speed to our room which was well apointed and modern. Later we discovered a contemporary bar and restuarant right on site and the beer and meals have been 4 star. Easy to recommend this plae with it's fairly central location

    A very pleasant hotel, which was in a good location, wasn't so sure when we first arrived, but after an amazing meal down on the wharf, the slight stroll back was a definate must. The hotel was clean and tidy and well presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any needs that you required. Very good value for the money for sure.

    « Clean hotel in a central location »

    This hotel is pretty central and close to the markets in Hobart. As we were leaving early Sunday morning we saw them setting up just down the street from the hotel. A clean hotel with good amenities. Check in and out was a little slow with only one staff member at reception but not the end of the world. On check out we requested a taxi which was organised for us in a timely manner. Be wary of people smoking on balconies either side of the room. It's a non-smoking hotel but we found people still smoked on the balconies which wafted into our room. There was also a rude shock at 2:30am when some hotel guests returned from a night out and decided to play loud music. The walls seem to be a little thin as we could hear quite a bit of noise from other guests but besides the music, it was pretty standard. The linen was clean and the bed comfortable. On the third floor we heard little to no street noise which was nice but we were not facing the main street. We were easily able to walk to and find liquor stores, pubs, supermarkets and taxis and noticed quite a few restaurants as well. A clean and basic hotel.

    A great experience from the phone contact prior to arrival and during our stay. Staff at front desk, especially Luke, Olivia, John and Bron couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Room was fine with comfy beds. Bar area cosy although sad to have missed the complimentary canapés served between 5.30pm and 6.30pm each evening, despite being in the bar area by 5.45pm. Our request to see if more canapés were coming not handled well. Other than that, great value for money.

    Stayed for medical appointments and for sick granddaughter in a big Hospital. Beds are very comfortable and soft. Extra blankets in the cupboard! Quiet without street noise even though we were 2nd floor facing the street. 2 balconies to our unit. Plenty of room in the fridge for our own drinks and milk. Busy line up at checkin and checkout staff were very efficient with short wait times. U/g parking with lift from carpark to the floor we stayed.

    The hotel has had an upgrade since I was last here in 2007. Good comfortable beds and pillows and the decor has been refreshed. Rooms are a bit noisy due to jack if double glazing and thin doors let a bit of noise from the corridor. 2 blocks from Hobart's CBD and about 6 blocks from the main cafe strip. d

    « Wasn't great »

    There wasn't any one thing wrong with the best western but I definitely will not stay here again. The room was a bit dirty - grubby marks on the furniture, and the cleaner had left long hairs in the bath and the bed. The pillows are so fat you can hardly lie horizontal and I actually slept on my coat instead. But the worst thing is the street noise -there's no protection from the road noise and you should fork out the extra $50 to stay at the RACV instead, as that was fabulous.

    « Relaxed and clean »

    Staff were really nice and helpful. Rooms were clean, although stains on carpet could be looked into. Beds were comfy and I liked the balcony as could see the mountains. One tip would be to have a booklet in the room of what services the hotel offers as I found myself looking for that a couple of times eg menus for ordering room service or booking airport bus. Had to use my smartphone. Overall a lovely stay for my four nights.
