The desk staff were excellent - friendly, obliging, and efficient. The room itself was ok, though the maintenance could be better (cracks in the walls, flat batteries in the remote, a lamp not working). There was also no bedside table on one side of the bed. Having to pay for parking was also not appreciated. There were also a couple of omissions made in cleaning.

Good location and clean rooms. Could do with some updates to the decor. It’s disappointing that parking is not free. Only place in Tasmania where we had to pay...

This once great value hotel is showing signs of getting tired. WiFi is almost non existent for streaming puposes at certain times. The cleaning staff do a great job but it would appear lack modern vacuum cleaners, and dust is along wall edges. Television shows * Fox channels, of which 3 work. Of those 3 2 are 24 hour Rugby, and the other 24 hour golf Occasionally a rugby channel will show an AFL match but don't count on it. Conveniently located for those attending AFL matches, but I will be looking elsewhere after 3 years of using this as my stay.
