The only thing that was needed was a fan in the bathroom. Otherwise a great hotel and brilliantly priced.underground parking safety for your car, I would recommend Best Western to anyone , wishing to stay close to Hobart.

Dear charlotte046, We think our off-street secure parking so close to the heart of Hobart is a bargain; so pleased you agree. See you (and your vehicle) again in the future I hope. Regards, Janine Livingston Manager

First heard of Best Western when travelling in the UK, and found them to be very good. When checking for accomodation in Hobart, came accross them there and decided to use them again. The value for money and comfortable rooms was what we wanted, as we were staying in Tasmania for two weeks holiday travelling all over the island. Was...

Stayed at best western on a Saturday night. Room was clean and bed very comfortable. We purchased some beers on the way down from Launceston but couldn't open them due to no bottle opener in the room. Had to call the downstairs bar to use their own bottle opener, not really a big deal but bottle openers should be in...

Hi, Chris D, Great to hear our new beds are so comfy. Thanks for the suggestion about the bottle openers. I am worried that there was evidence of smoking; we are 100% non-smoking, including balconies. We do have some packages that include parking so perhaps you could try one of those next time. Hoping to welcome you back then. Regards,...

I stayed with Best Western over the weekend. Having previously paid prior to check in, the front desk staff proceeded to inform me that I hadn't paid. The woman then processed my payment and realised that I had infact paid. When trying to reverse my payment, the woman told me that it would be back in my account the following...

Dear DylanF013, I am so sorry there has been a misunderstanding about your stay. You had pre-paid your booking through a travel agent but, in common with most hotels, we do require a small pre-authorisation on a credit card on arrival to cover for any incidental expenses. This does not mean that we made any charge on your credit card....

Look if you want 5 star, spa apartments with glorious views - don't stay here. If you are after a basic room as all you'll do there is sleep - then why not. Easy walking to the city centre and from there to the waterfront. Nice breakfast. Clean rooms though a little "tired". Perfectly acceptable.

We had a two day package and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The curtains would not close without falling off the hooks and it was good but basic. I didn't like the position but that is my fault as I didn't realise we were not close to Constitution Dock and I missed looking at the water. We had a...

Dear Lynne F, Thank you for the feedback. Although we are not on the water it is only a few minutes walk to the dock. I am very sorry you were affected by the power cut. The electricity for our part of Hobart was out for over an hour that day. I am pleased to say this is very, very...

As far as a no-frills hotel goes, Best Western fits the bill. It's fairly cheap with a special on, and the rooms are of a decent size. There are some strange things about the hotel. If you are a light sleeper, you may have some issues. Although Hobart has to be one of the quietest cities around, the rooms on...
