The Leisure Inn Hobart on Macquarie was well kept, clean, modern and central. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The facilities in the room were in perfect working order and of a high standard. Unexpectedly, there was even a fridge and a microwave in our room. It is just a small thing, but we were charged $2 to leave our luggage at the hotel for a few hours after we checked out in the morning.
Good location and easy to get to most places in Hobart. Comfortable bed, fridge in room, flat screen tv. 100mb of free internet Breakfast (additional charge) on first floor was a convenient hot buffet with many options. No safe in room. Elevators/lifts are under renovation (as of Feb 2016). Only one was operational which meant it took a long time. Stairs were a much better option. 100mb of free internet goes pretty quickly
Location, friendly staff and housekeeping were all good. Showers need updating and breakfast should be inluded as standard.
Clean, affordable, friendly staff It was hard to adjust the temperature in the shower, from too cold to too hot with no in between.
Loved Angie. She was so helpful. We were originally placed in a room near the elevator (which was under construction). She helped us move (and because we were in a hurry and needed to leave the property quickly, she even moved our belongings and luggage for us). we came back to a new room with all our things nicely laid out and very nice gift with a note to apologize for the original inconvenience. Very kind and professional. We called the desk at 2:30 am more than 5 times and no answer. Night staff could use some help staying more alert.
It was in a very central position in the city walking distance to every thing; free car parking; very clean modern rooms; quick check in and out. Did not receive a tourist map of the city, need more information on the city of Hobart. Car park to small for the number of people staying, no air conditioner only fan and it took up valuable space in the room may be put in roof fans or wall fans as room lacked air so you really needed it on.
Close to such treats at the harbour and Salamanca Market The shower has no lip and splashes wet the entire bathroom floor.Interestingly the Launceston Leisure Inn has the same shower but there is a lip around the base.
Nice room, good facilities though not a big room. Free parking. No wi-fi
A very pleasant hotel, close to all facilities. good rate, our room 604 was better. we were in room 901, outside the lift coming up and down from 5.00am in the morning, bang, bang, bang, each floor stopping. we made a change for the next night.
Ease of location The room was hot and stuffy even with the air con on, and didn't like the way the whole bathroom floor got wet when using the shower.
It was close to my head office. It struggled for parking space as there are insufficient spaces, the rooms were quite small in comparison to what else is available for the price and the bathroom needed maintenance as fixtures fell off the walls.
The personalised service by the manager The cost of parking. Difficult to recommend untill renovations completed
the location of the hotel was excellent the decor of the hotel needed updating, it had an 80's feel to it and the room was not very inviting
The hotel staff were very diligent in making sure your stay was a pleasing one. All the facilities were first class and everyone at the hotel were very friendly. The breakfast options were a little pricey. There was only one restaurant offering breakfast, or in room service, which was for the same price. I also wasn't impressed with the quality of food on offer at the restaurant for the price.
The quality of the food was excellent The rooms and standards of the room against the price we payed
Special thanks to Christopher at reception on check out. To the house keeping staff member that responded to an issue I had with my room 1505 - AA - sorry i didn't get your name but you deserve an excellence award.
The location and the wonderful views of the Derwent River. Good and safe place to stay in Hobart for a solo traveller. Access to the Casino and late night opening of facilities. Staff welcoming and well trained.Cabs available at door. Some of the food outlets not up to a 5* standard. Overpricing of some hotel facilities. Facilities a bit dated. Tv needs to be updated. Rooms could be modernised a bit.
Situation is ideal for touring Tasmania. Nothing specific
I was totally unawared that the wrest pt. was a casino/hotel. The web site was not cleared on that point. I would not have booked it if I knew that I was a casino. I am not a gambler.
It was in a beautiful spot and close to the city. Great restaurants and service
The convenience of the location and the fact that it had a reasonably equipped gym. The rooms could have been a bit more up-to-date. The looked a little dowdy.
People, casino and the fact it was not in the middle of town. We had a great time in Tasmania, our first trip, and will definately be back. We found there was such an array of foods to select from, restaurants, that we did not go into the city once to eat. Thanks and we will be back
Convenient to conference
Our booking was incomplete upon our arrival but, with a little time, our concerns were professionally handled and as a result we had an extremely comfortable stay.
The location of the hotel was the best. Swimming facilities were neglected, it did not appear very clean and most of all the whole area was very cold, no heating in the room, it felt like being almost outside, especially in August, it discouraged us from swimming despite the fact that it was the main reason of choosing the hotel.
The captivating and entertaining harbour views, the exceptionally thoughtful and friendly staff, as well as the delightful and comprehensively varied full buffet breakfast and efficient room service. The 2 day parking charge relating to a 1 night stay. However, this is a minor issue.
Location was a key to my stay, and i usually stay at a nearby hotel that was booked out so staying at the Grand Chancellor was a pleasant alternative
Staff were fantastic, and the new Restaurant had a great seafood platter. Suite room was very comfortable and handy for city access, right across the road for adventure cruises.
The hotel was lovely. Nice and central to all the events going on over the weekend and the city centre for shopping. The pool was lovely and In can't wait to stay again! The complimentary newspaper at the door when I woke was a nice touch as well.
Spacious room, all the expected amenities.Room had a work desk which was a bit wasted on us as we were on holiday. Everything worked ok. The hotel is well located to the city centre and the sea front. Tv, although in good working order, looked a bit dated. Perhaps the hotel should invest in flat screen, wall mounted tv'S.
Only stayed one night but the service was great.
Very central and within walking distance from CBD Parking garage entry can be improved. Had no indication where to put my access card in. Would help to have a flashing light such as at ATM's
Convenient Location: proximity to city, selection of excellent restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. The hotel's own excellent restaurant, Alexander's, and the beautiful view of the harbour. No. Except for the hideous ugly old floor tiles in the bathroom. The bathroom, however, was spotlessly clean and well maintained, just old and outdated.
Loved our spacious room and especially the view. we rested often in hotel room, tea coffee and biscuits poor. We had to ask for gowns they we not in the room but were happily given them on asking
The atmosphere, location in relation to convenience to city and Salamanca, restaurants etc. I have booked many company guests because of that over the years. For booking on line this time, it cost me and my guest an extra $65.00 each per night as opposed to calling direct. This will not happen again. Having stayed over 100 times in the past 30 years it was disapppointing that the receptionist would not to take that into account.
Location perfect.Accomodation very comfortable.Noise factor excellent.Room spacious enough and cleaned beautifully.Definately will go back
Very comfortable and quiet. we booked the Mountain room but only for availability as we hadn't stayed before. We ended up in a garden view room which was delightful. At this time of year, (Spring) we would request it again. We didn't dislike the restaurant, but preferred to visit a variety of other places to dine.
The size of the rooms and the buffet breakfasts. We had to provide some feedback to their restaurant in respect issues during dinner.
Very quiet room and location.
Breakfast was included in the price. The noise of the people in ajoining rooms
Being able to talk to someone promptly about any problems The walls were very thin and you could here everyone in the rooms next to you.
the room itself was absolutely beautiful and very clean. unfortunately, on a few occasions, we did hear the noise of shaking pipes either coming from upstairs or next door. It was quite annoying at 5am.
I like the layout. I have stayed at Ridges(Northside Manor) on a number of occasions but not in the last few years since retiring. Obviously wear and tear is beginning to show however the hotel is well situated and excellent value for money. I would stay in the future and chose to stay because of previous visits. Room 40 needed a little maintenance/ attention eg loose cupboard door hinges and noisy fridge.
Very nicely appointed room with spectacular views even though I had a "city" view room. Close to the wharves and shopping areas and well set up for a business person as well.
Relaxing, quietness. Friendly staff and enjoyable breakfasts and bed was most comfortable Freezer of fridge on the small side (one 2l ice cream container did not fit).
The staff were quite insistent that our fridge had been filled with drinks and snacks prior to us arriving. When we checked out we told staff that they were definitely not there. It was not easy convincing them of this. When we booked, 'bookings.com' said we would get a room with a king size bed + a second queen. We were 'free upgraded' to a room with 1 double size bed. Baffling?
Relaxing, clean, accessable, friendly staff, welcoming, private, very comfortable bed, quiet location, would stay again Would have liked the room to have a dvd player
Good breakfast buffet served from 6.30am. Plenty of space in the room. Friendly staff.
Location, service I would like to see a fan to ventilate the bathroom(toilet)
It was within walking distance to all things in the city, very comfortable and great value for money.
Staff were helpful and it was quiet. Our room smelt of cigarets.
Deluxe rooms are spacious with the extra dining/loungeroom Was expecting a modern room and it was old and rundown, for the money I was disappointed. The spa was only half the size of a normal bath as well so had to sit up in it... Expecting a spa in a deluxe suite to be able to relax in and layback.
Quiet and rooms were very clean
Easy efficient breakfast arrangements
staff are good and helpful location is not so great
Location. Close to city and shopping. Comfortable and clean room. The loss of the carpark next door! Having to pay extra for valet parking. Not being able to access my car easily without going through reception! Noisy guests in early hours of morning. A school formal that blocked up the hotel foyer and valet parking area right on dinner time when guests were trying to move in and out of the hotel!!! There was also a tour bus parked in this area! Crazy!!!
Convenient to all amenities,the room was wonderful,quiet&better than expected.
The location. The open fire in the lounge. The air conditioner in our room was inoperative.
I loved the traditional decor and the old world charm
The staff were excellent and the hotel was interesting. The room was very comfortable.
A beautiful carefully renovated building, with a lovely ambience, and friendly and relaxed staff.
Convenient to central Hobart and sights
We enjoyed the location of the hotel because it was very easy to get around. I felt the word "superior room" was very over rated, I felt like it was no more than a standard room. The mat in the shower/bath was discusting I would expect to see that standard in a hotel in the back of Australia. The cups were not washed and someone had used the sample bottle of moisturizer and put it back. The tables in the foyer had definetly not been wiped down for quite a long time as there were glass marks and dirt all over it which was very obvious when the light was on it.
Location - it was in the heart of the city and walking distance to the harbour-front, Salamanca Place which made it very convenient. View from the windows - from the 4th floor we could not see outside because windows were either facing skywards, or they were at waist level and we had to crouch to look outside. Even then, the view was blocked because building features where right in front of window. Also TV's were old tube style - in this day and age we expected to have at least a 42" flat screen....
The location and comfort of the apartment including the size and self catering facilities. There was only one mirror in the whole apartment and also the lack of sheer curtains on the windows which would have been helpful with privacy. Our apartment faced houses across the road which were on the same level.
Staff were very helpful. I arrived at around 8:45 pm, and I was told that the kitchen was closed.
the staff went above and beyond to make my stay great. so friendly and helpful in every area. carparking was short, but they did give me alternatives which was great
Very pleased with the food provided and the helpfulness of the staff and their interest in offering advice when requested. The outside traffic, but you can't do anything about that and we had no real problem with it.it
Strategic location & free car park
Well mannered staff. Comefortable rooms. Dining is excellent value.Note, we used to stay at Wrest Point - you do it equally as well.
great value mini bar, surprisingly classy rooms & facilities, friendly & helpful staff. some traffic noise on 5th floor
Nice hotel central to Hobart. Cheap and comfortable.
Easy access to harbourside and CBD, restful.
We were happy with all aspects.The dining room value for money and quality of the evening meals. The dining room staff were very helpful and gave an honest accurate assessment of the hotel. I felt they were an asset to the hotel and should be appraised. I was a bit concerned about parking but found a spot on each occasion.
great location at reasonable price. Friendly & helpful staff and clean rooms. older style hotel with minimum facilities
The hotel is central located restaraunt and mini bar prices are very resonable. the rooms are very comfortable and staff are very helpfull.
Convenient, quiet, easy access to city shower - impossible to control water temperature - either too hot or too cold . Need additional parking
I liked the location and it wasnt far to walk in to the centre of town. There were great places to eat near by.
Central to all that we wanted to do and see
Its proimity to my conference venue
This hotel has poor ventilation, It was stuffy. I suspect it has "Sick Building Syndrome" a condition where carbon dioxide, paint and plastic emissions acculmulate due to poor ventilation.
we are regular patrons of this hotel. It is ideally situated for a visit to Hobart.
Locality to the city and surrounds
Good position, close to Salamanca Place, the harbour and the concert hall. I wish a single room was half the price of a double.
The bathroom facilities were great, beds were comfortable, there was no noise from the outside despite being close to night spots. Staff were exellent and very helpful. Nice big room even with three people. Tried to park the morning before, rang up to confirm and was told it would be fine, but at that time of the morning the only parking available were metered spaces. Not a problem for me but might be for an elderley couple.
It was well located near the Salamanca and waterfront areas. Quiet despite a pub opposite being very busy one night. It was one of the blandest, plainest room I have ever stayed in - reminded me of a student hall of residence. Not a place to linger- but functional.
Very easy and quick to access rooms from the streetfront. Very quiet compared to most hotels. Very close to the waterfront and to the restaurants at Salamanca.
We were allowed privacy but the staff were very helpful if we had any queries.
suitable for a family with reasonable busget, close to shopping, nice beach and mountain view small
location location location location location location location.......... The smell of the room. It smelt strongly of some cleaning product that was not pleasant, yet it was persistent. Even with the windows open it was hard to shift.
location and clean presentation of room no complaints
The location was ideal. Price was reasonable for the amminities offered. The motel is old and rather run down. There is no one at the front desk. We were given a room at the top most level from which the view was nise but, with no elevator, we had to carry the luggage up four flights of stairs. The room was relatively clean but smelled musty and old.
I liked my stay and my room, which had lovely views.I liked the area it was in, and its claeness to shops , parks etc I didn't like the way the room was cleaned. On a number of occasions, the table wasn't wiped clean and milk wasn't refreshed. The road outside was quite noisy.,
Whilst motel was reasonably clean,it was pretty basic & outdated. It was early sixties style,we got wet trying to open the external door ,as the locks were old fashioned &and were very difficult to open,thus as it was raining we were fully exposed to the weather,which resulted in us getting wet. There did'nt appear to be anyone on duty after eight thirty P.M. and we had to enter the building though the heavy duty steel door, which obviously doubled as the fire escape,however to be fair the owner was telling us he had only recenly taken the motel over, and that he intended refurbishing in the short term. I think I could get better value elsewhere at the moment, but I would be prepared to consider staying there again after the re-furbishment.
Its close proximity to Salamanca When we arrived for 2 nights we were asked to move rooms after the first night, we refused but obviously someone else had to move, the rooms need maintenance.
Even though the hotel had no record of our booking and was fully booked, they worked very hard to make sure we had a bed each night.
Easy walking distance to city. Cleaning of room not as good as it could have been. The bathroom sink and surronding counter was not washed the two days were were there.
Great location. Can walk to shops and wharf restaurants. Airport shuttle and Hop On-Off bus stop close by. Excellent breakfast included. Large bath area. Taxi stand in front. Friendly staff. We would stay again. The bed room area a little congested but manageable. Would stay again.
