We had a two day package and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The curtains would not close without falling off the hooks and it was good but basic. I didn't like the position but that is my fault as I didn't realise we were not close to Constitution Dock and I missed looking at the water. We had a...

Dear Lynne F, Thank you for the feedback. Although we are not on the water it is only a few minutes walk to the dock. I am very sorry you were affected by the power cut. The electricity for our part of Hobart was out for over an hour that day. I am pleased to say this is very, very...

As far as a no-frills hotel goes, Best Western fits the bill. It's fairly cheap with a special on, and the rooms are of a decent size. There are some strange things about the hotel. If you are a light sleeper, you may have some issues. Although Hobart has to be one of the quietest cities around, the rooms on...

The location is great and the buffet breakfast is excellent but the rooms are very sad. If the rooms were refurbished properly, this could be a 4 star location but the rooms we had were 2 star at best.

I stayed with friends for a girls weekend getaway! The rooms were clean & very comfortable beds! The staff were friendly and breakfast was awesome! Reasonably priced and a good central location close to everything in Hobart! Also across from a car rental place if you need a car!

Stayed at the Best Western Hobart in July for business and I have rarely stayed anywhere that had the most consistent high level of customer service. All the staff were extremely helpful, always with a smile. This is what made the stay so pleasant. The hotel itself is quite good and I was in a refurbished room which was nicely...

We stayed at the Best Western Hobart on the weekend. Unfortunately we found the check-in process lacking in detail as we were not told anything about check out time or breakfast or food options at the hotel. We were literally given our room key and sent on our way. The room itself was clean and tidy and the bed was...

Luke and Tracey at the front of house have the best customer service that I have come across in Hobart. Paddy and Eloise in the bar/ Embers were sensational with their service and friendliness. The food was awesome and I heavily suggest a stay or visit for a bite to eat.
