Hi Dimmy, we're sorry to hear the heat pump wasn't working. We hope you asked to be moved to another room. We're here to help.

Never Again

I had stayed at Devonport once before and had an average but expensive meal with my wife and young son. I thought I would give the hotel one more chance but it closed at 7pm. Someone recommended I go elsewhere for a meal, beverage and flutter so I did. Interesting to note I bumped someone else at the other hotel who said he’d stayed at the Edgewater before and wouldn’t go back and neither will I.

First hotel ive stayed in where there was a constant fear of setting off the smoke alarms every time we had a shower! We were warned not to leave the shower door open, dont spray any perfumes or deodorant as the slightest whiff could set them off! Thats a pain in the butt, more so considering a fire alarm had been scheduled that morning that we werent told about!. One of the staff even looked at us surprised and said she didnt think anyone was staying at the time! good thing we were up! lol! didnt fancy running across the road in my pjs if i hadnt been up! lol! OH and the room had sugar, coffee etc, mugs, but no teaspoons. A little corner table in the room would have come in handy when we ordered room service one night, we had to eat on the bed lol....no spills i promise! haha! This last one isnt just this hotel, -but the MAJORITY of places we stayed in Tasmania, with the cold weather, had very little in way of warm blankets. I was glad i had brought two of my own and used them instead. I know other people staying felt the cold aswell at night as i woke up every time they turned their heater on in the middle of the night. Just an FYI. Thanks for having us! location happened to be perfect for the ship disembarkment and our schedule with family as they were just down the road, so winning on that one! J

To safeguard guests and staff, Edgewater has recently installed a full fire alarm system with WiFi connection to the Fire Brigade. We have found that the sensors in guest rooms are far more sensitive that normal smoke detectors. In the meantime, we are notifying guests (on check-in) of a few housekeeping issues to avoid unnecessary evacuation, such as closing the bathroom door and not to remove the detectors. Yes, we are aware of this imposition, but your safety and wellbeing is a core value at Edgewater.

Convenient if you are overnighting to catch Ferry

OK budget rooms are very basic. Wall not very sound proof.

Budget rooms are old, small and dated - which is reflected in the great discount in price. Edgewater has 4 premium room types available and priced accordingly. Thank you for your feedback

Good location close to the ferry. The staff member on the phone was a bit rude when I called asking about checkout times as I had gotten the time wrong for the ferry. It almost made me cancel our booking. The room was nice and clean. Not really worth $90 though.
