Recently spent four nights at the Best Western and wasn't disappointed. Lovely comfortable room on the 5th (top) floor with queen size bed and coffee/tea making facilities. Towels etc were changed daily with the added bonus of slippers and bathrobes supplied. Restaurant for breakfast and evening meal was more than adequate and the staff were friendly and helpful. Lifts serve...

My partner and I stayed here recently for 2 nights. We stayed in a king bed room on the top floor. The hotel is in a good location and everything is within walking distance.

We booked through Wotif.com for a few days in Hobart and accepted a mystery booking not knowing what we would get but feeling we couldn't lose at the price. Our faith in the system was rewarded. This hotel is only a short walk from Salamanca Place and the foreshore and if you plan well, the return is fairly flat. Another...

Hotel is in a good location, staff were very friendly. Disappointed with the bathrooms, they were very tired, bath had very deep scratches and marks, exposing the black underneath, felt like when booking a "privilege" room the bathrooms would have been nicer. Beds were very comfortable and liked that there was a balcony, not many hotels have that. From memory...
