We decided on the day that we would stay the night in hobart & all we could get in our price range was this but it was well worth it. Excellent customer service, clean rooms with modern interior decorations, great variety on the menus. I would stay here again

This place was average by Best Western standards. The bathroom was a bit small and old looking but the bedroom area was a perfect size. We purchased a queen bed and ended up with two twin size beds. We ended up not switching because we were so tired and figured personal space might be ok for a few nights. The...

On our arrival on Christmas day, we were greeted by lovely, friendly staff at check in. The room was more than adequate as we did not plan to spend time indoors. The bathroom was a little dated but we really did not care. The bed was very comfortable and when we requested for different pillows, these were provided promptly with...

We left it until quite late to book accommodation in Hobart given the time of year, the Sydney to Hobart and Taste of Tasmania so felt quite lucky to find that the Best Western had rooms available and were not asking the inflated premiums that other hotels were asking. All of the staff that we encountered were incredibly friendly and...

We had a "superior queen and single room" at Best Western in Hobart. I liked the very clean rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. Less impressive were: - The wifi. Slow and unstable, which made it so frustrating I went back to 3G/4G. - The sound proofing or complete lack of it. Window didn't close completely, so we could...

We were looking for good value for money and a good location in Hobart for a two night stay starting on the Saturday before Christmas. It was never going to be "cheap" at the time of year but this hotel ticked our boxes and exceeded our expectations. The room was very spacious, modern, well equipped and the bed was very...
