The manager and staff were friendly giving us directions and recommendations around the area. The view from the balcony was excellent. The TV was big and modern. The lift was tiny and slow.

The property was charming. We loved the history of it having been a nunnery. The Victorian feature have been kept and the spiral staircase is beautiful. The deep bath was a treat although could have a handrail of some sort. The property was well located for our needs and close to an excellent Chinese restaurant for dinner and cafe for breakfast.

Hi Anon. Glad you enjoyed your stay at Auldington. Mostly it is very quiet here at night as most of our reviews will attest, so I am sorry if that was not the case when you visited.

Terrible experience, Horrible, condescending, unkempt hotel front desk staff with B.O and crumpled shirts hanging out over their pot bellies. Grumpy, pushy cleaning-woman who did everything possible to avoid cleaning room for multi-night stay, then insisted we vacate room IMMEDIATELY (not in two or five five minutes) so she could clean it. Won’t be back. Will recommend to anyone and everyone to avoid this hotel. No staff at hotel front most of the time.. Absolutely no staff on hotel premises after 5pm. There is an emergency number that you are to call. But even then you are told not to call after 11pm. This is not acceptable as this is billed as an upmarket hotel near the city centre, not some remote lodge on cradle mountain.

What could have happened to attract such a vitriolic review? When we processed your reservation we noted you had booked two consecutive days, but on different months. We called you in advance to verify if it was correct. You informed us that it was an error, and then immediately asked if you could stay in the same room on both nights if you stayed for two days in a row. That question made me realise that you must know something I didn’t, so I checked inventory and sure enough the room type you booked (City View room) was already sold out on the second night, but we did have a City View Spa available for both nights. We agreed to upgrade you for free to the more expensive City View Spa room so you could stay for two consecutive nights. When you checked in, the check in went well and you seemed very happy with your upgraded room. On check out, you did incorrectly declare the amount of mini bar you had used and was corrected twice by your mother, who was traveling with you in the same room. I offered to go and check what was actually used, and confirmed your mother was right. No problem, we amended the account and you paid the correct total. However, upon cleaning the room we noticed that one of the magazines was missing - one of the magazines that has a label on the front identifying it belongs to that specific room. We phoned you and politely asked if you could return it, and you agreed to post it back to us from Hobart. Three days later you dropped it off on our Reception desk personally, after writing your name on the cover using a red pen from the Reception desk, along with all of teas, coffees, sugars and sweeteners that you had also taken from the room, which we did not even ask you to return. I’m struggling to see what we did wrong here. As to other matters – our uniform shirts are designed to hang around our waists. We regularly bend down to make beds, clean etc, so having shirts that tuck in would not work. As to my unshaven face, I was following doctor’s recommendation to leave my beard to grow out for a week to deal with a shaving rash I had developed the previous week, but thanks for asking. I don’t know what you smelt in the Reception lobby, but I am certain neither myself nor any of my staff have BO. As to my body shape, body shaming me or any other staff member is not acceptable, so I won’t respond further to that. Like most hotels in Australia, we have been operating on restricted hours of operation since Covid due to lack of staff and intermittent demand. Very few guests are troubled by this. I ask guests not to phone my mobile after 11:00pm, but only because I am human and need some sleep. The After Hours Emergency phone is staffed by someone 24 hours, should there be any emergencies when hotel staff are not on site. Our housekeeper works tirelessly every day to keep the entire hotel very clean and to make our bathrooms sparkle, as many other reviews on this website will attest. If our housekeeper asked you whether or not you want
