The ever present smokers on the back steps were unnecessary. The room doors either all closed very loudly or everyone was having a door slamming contest, would be nice to have some mechanisms applied to quieten that as it wakes and disturbs others. The common room water supply or something in there resonates through the building both waking and annoying others. Otherwise it is a simple, comfortable and basic place to stay.

Quick visit up to Devonport from Hobart overnight, the stay was great. Hot tip! If you want a 4 and a half year old to sleep, don’t tell them the boats and trains are right out the window! But he did love it!

Lovely and cozy. I don't like sharing a room with a rude person though.

Surprisingly nice

For the price, we weren’t sure what to expect. Probably not ideal if you’re a light sleeper hoping for an early night over the weekend due to noise from the bar and street. Single queen room with own bathroom inc actual bath!

Noise central

Note to self...don't book hotel accommodation for a Sat night. Terribly noisy till 330am. Meal very nice however, staff nice and room nicely appointed. Just wrong choice.

Handy location, good dining area, OK for the price

Pros: Dining and location
Cons: Some shelving in bathroom
Location: Near river with great walks along foreshore
Room was comfortable but bathroom small with no shelving and vanity in main room but otherwise OK for a short stay of one or two nights.
