8/10 Very good

Great budget accommodation close to city
Considering the cost of the stay I’d say it was pretty good. Clean and tidy budget friendly and close to city so walking was easy. Free wifi, free parking, great service. Not the most modern of accomodations but I’d call it quaint, historic and on the heritage side of things. Basic facilities but adequate for a place to lay your head and have a good shower. Mini fridge, some snacks, tea and coffee. No microwave or hairdryer for those that need it though. Travelled with my mum to visit University campuses and we were both comfortable. Beware.. if you are from the mainland like us.. shops close early (like 4 to 4.30 ish) apparently it’s a Tasmanian thing but if you know then you can work around it, lovely view from our room too x

Cheap room, not very clean
The price was cheap and parking was free and close. But the overall condition of the hotel wasn't great. It had a damp smell about it. The carpets were dirty and stained in the hallways leading to our room. In the room my kids found hairs in their beds it looked like the bed linen hadn't been changed just remade. Where you open the fridge on top where you put your fingers their was a gunky sludge like stuff sitting in their so it hadn't been properly cleaned for a while. The carpets were stained in multiple places beside the beds.

Stay as a last resort only!!
The foyer of the hotel was welcoming. The rest of it appalling. My room hadn't had a thorough clean in ages. The mattress was extremely stained with no mattress protector and was not comfortable. The hotel is occupied by many Fijian workers - very pleasant people - which makes the hotel more like a backpackers hostel. Cannot recommend this property at all.

Lovely old building built 1820 and love the history. Staff were very helpful and other patrons were polite. Short walk to main area where there are plenty of food/dinner choices . Remember it’s an old building with beautiful architecture.
