Surprisingly better than I expected. Good size rooms with recent refurbishment and daily servicing. Excellent meals in the restaurant and a short walk to everything.

Very clean with basic furnishings and amenities. A few items indicate the dated nature of the rooms. The live music venue was quite loud as was the noise from outside.

Great staff, comfortable room and amazing (seriously amazing) food at the restaurant. Unfortunately because we stayed on a Friday/Saturday night the pub downstairs had big time bands/DJs, which doesn’t work out if you want an early night. In spite of this though I did love the styling in the pub/restaurant: beautiful and well thought out.

Bottom was the Hotel and the Motel was above. Very clean and friendly staff. The meals were one of the best we have had while we were in Tasmania. The only 2 things that we could say against the Formby was no breakfast available and stairs only to get to your room. My husband is 78 and did struggle with his bad knee.

I was moved to the Alex which appeared to be a much older building and was not very clean. Was very noisy.

Thanks for your review.

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.
