Food and amenities were great. Unfortunately at the time of booking we were unaware that there was DJ music in the main bar on the night we stayed and were told there would be loud music between 10:00 p.m and 2:00 am and of course the rooms are directly above the bar area. We were asked if that was OK and we had to sign a form stating we agreed. Unfortunately checking in Friday afternoon there were no other places to book into. Yes the music was loud but it did finish not long after 1:00am.

When we checked in we were told there would be a DJ operating the two nights we were staying down stairs till 1:00am and asked if we still wanted the room (nothing about this when booking). We had no other option but to accept. The noise in the room kept us awake until 2:00am when it finally stopped. I would not recommend staying on a Friday or Saturday night. Not happy Jan !!

I will never book on line again , this does not explain what happens in side the hotel.This was worst night of our life. If we had of know it had a night club under our room we would have never had stayed there, The noise of thumping threw the walls, The screaming & yelling out side our window the window even rattled with the music so loud, this went on till about 4am in the morning. We only got about 2 hours sleep then we was out of there. I went down stairs in the morning to find some staff to complain but there was no one about when we left at 6.30 am I went to complain but could not find any staff only the cleaner so I left the key with the cleaner. They should be a shamed of them self to even take peoples money for a night like that. If you was young & drunk it would not matter.

Clean and spacious room. Was there on a Friday night and did not hear a thing during the night (after reading all the previous reviews prior to booking). Was a great spot to stay before catching the Spirit of Tasmania the next morning.

Surprisingly better than I expected. Good size rooms with recent refurbishment and daily servicing. Excellent meals in the restaurant and a short walk to everything.
