The location and friendly management.
carpet floor dirty, phone not connected, no toilet roll holder,
Location between Battery Point and Sandy Bay was excellent. Close to many restaurants, Salamanca Place and the city.
Motel is old fashioned and decor is tired, though clean enough. There are many stairs and no elevator. Parking is difficult to access and inadequate for the number of rooms. Service over the weekend was minimal.
near too shop,casino and to the city
Good Location but a bit hard to find car park.We enjoyed our stay and felt it was good value.
close Proximity to city centre and shops, easy to find motel , friendly staff and clean room
Room was clean but a bit old and worn, bathroom is in need of renovation and bed was a little spongy but comfortable enough
The hotel is within easy reach to the Salamenca market, the centre of town, the wreest Point Casino and the grocery shops.
No vehicle access on Sandy Bay Road. Access directions should be given to potential users of the hotel.
The location is great, near to the resturant strip and Salamanca square. Any deficiencies/faults we found in the room were delt with promptly and with the minimum of fuss. They have an industrial size washing machine and drier which is great for doing large loads in one hit. Power points were well located and plentyful, lightining was good.
No toaster which was supplied in most other places we stayed. Limited T.V.stations and no set top box. We had anticipated some places might not have this so we had taken along plenty of DVDs but found we had to pay AUD $15 per day for a DVD player. On site parking was very limited and would be a severe impedement to staying at this hotel in peak season as parking is problem generally in Hobart so you don't have too many other options than using the on site parking.
The location is in the heart of Hobart.
Access by car is from the rear, that address was not clear when booking and caused us some initial confusion. Parking on site is very limited, and when full the street must be used... also limited and not without restriction!v (2 hours between 8 am and 6 pm- effectively thus accessible between 4 pm and 10 am).
Easy access to Hobart's attractions
We found it difficult to get into on arrival... and not having designated parking. The parking spaces could be numbered and allocated to guests who need a parking spot.
Good location; useful kitchen; quiet apart from carpark noise; friendly staff.
Several electric lights didn't work, and there seemed to be no urgency in rectifying this. Early morning noise in carpark (from 8 motorcycles on one morning) was disquieting.
The apartment is nicely presented and the kitchen is well equipment for simple cooking. Receptionist is helpful to answer questions.
It will be nice to advise in advance that the car park entrance is through St. George Terrace. That would save us the hassle of finding it out ourselves.
Brilliant location. Walking distance to Salamanca, Water front, Hobart, Sandy Bay shops & Wrest Point Casino. Loved the view of Mt Wellington from our window & Wrest Point Casino from the stair well. Also really liked the historical area & beautiful old homes in the streets around the Motel. Comfy bed, hot shower, airy bathroom, guest laundry & helpful staff. Cosy base from which to explore southern Tasmania.
Great location. Standard facilities but in reasonable order and fair price. Good service. Separate bedroom, actually suits 3 adults - hard to find at a reasonable price.
my only comment to staff was that the bathroom fan was dirty and the shower ceiling was mouldy. They seemed to appreciate the feedback. Sofa beds are always average to poor quality unfortunately.
It was convenient, clean and friendly reception staff. The room was good for a family as it had all the conveniences. I have recommended it to a friend who will stay there shortly.
