Reviewed 10 January 2016

The hotel is set in lovely grounds, with the main hotel in an old manor and then the rooms in separate buildings. To my surprise it was more like a mini apartment with a nice big bed, separate lounge room, separate bathroom and kitchen facilities. Although a little worn out, it was clean and functional and the free wifi was...

We stayed in one of the older rooms which was spacious and very clean and tidy. Nice view to the east from this 1st floor room. It was a short walk to North Hobart restaurant strip where we has some great food and drink. Good bus service to the CBD from that area too. We walked to the water a...

The very spacious room was part of a heritage building with loads of charm. My room was lovely and comfortable. The only inconvenience was that the restaurant and room service were closed on a Sunday night. However, the hotel is close enough to the many restaurants on Elizabeth Street for it not to be too much of a problem. I...

Good spacious room equipped well..decor is a bit dated now and an upgrade would help, although there was nothing fundamentally wrong with the hotel. The pool was lovely and clean and great temp for a refreshing swim every day. It is x decent walk to the waterfront but it's less that $10 in a cab.

Rydges Hobart has a beaut old world feel. Our room (6) was perfect. We had a good view of the historic buildings from our large lounge room windows. The kitchen and bathroom were all you could want and the bed was one of the most comfortable we've slept in. The pillows were so good we intend to buy some for...

I recently stayed here for 8 nights. My first impressions were that it's very dated. Positives: lots of parking, easy self service laundry facilities, spacious rooms (I was in a garden room), perfectly adequate kitchenette. Negatives: Dark rooms (lots of wood paneling), could be cleaner, quite a distance to walk to the centre of Hobart
