Amazing! The staff were lovely, we got an upgrade for minimal $. Gorgeous room, with a great view and the comfiest bed ever! Clean, simple bathroom with everything you need. There’s also a great pool but we didn’t get the chance to use it this time. We’ll be back! :)

The location was good for what we wanted to do in Hobart and environs. We had a rental car so it was easy to move around and there is no additional charge for overnight parking. The restaurant at the hotel options are limited (we are not buffet fans) and to my mind on the expensive side that is why we chose to mostly eat offsite
