Only good thing about this hotel is the location. Only stayed here to be close to yachts in Sydney to Hobart at Constitution Dock which is a 5 minute walk. Property I’ve been told is earmarked for demolition so no updates have been done in a long long time! Being a pub, the room stink! No AC only open the windows with no screens. Furnishings ripped, holes in them and stained. Bathroom shower over a bath that had been repaired at one stage also broken tiles and dirt. Housekeeping asked if we wanted our room done, yes please as we were on our way out, this consisted of the blanket being pulled up, that’s all, no clean towel, nothing cleaned, just felt dirty the 6 days we had booked. Breakfast was cereal or toast, yoghurt and apples. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel!

It was basic accomodation-not modern at all. It had not had an renovation since the 80's, and it showed. Paint flaking off doors, enamel paint coming off bath, toilet leaked and a fridge so small.... Never stay here again.

Nice bar and pool table area downstairs. Our stay came with complimentary breakfast which was very enjoyable. And the staff were very outgoing and funny :)
