      Everything excellent except the Wi-Fi”

      Everything in Discovery Parks Hobarts was excellent, including staff helpfulness, cleanliness, facilities and value of money, except (1) Wi-Fi and (2) Lacking of air-conditioners/heaters in the bedrooms. The Wi-Fi speed isn't fast enough, and we required to ask for the login passwords from the staff everyday. There is only 1 air-conditioner and heater in the living room but unavailable in two bedrooms.

      Affordable Hotel, Near to Hobart”

      Spent a night in Discovery Park. It is well equipped and parking lot if available. About 10min drive to Hobart. No staff was available during checkin (5pm). While I was able to reach the staff using the phone outside the reception office, the wifi-password wasn't provided. Further calls to reach the staff using the phone were not successful due to poor connection and the reception was muffled. We are left without wifi the whole night, and 3G connectivity is poor inside the cabin. Upset about this.

      Pros: The staff were really friendly and helpful. Great facilities in the park. Great for family vacation. The park is also one of the few pet friendly accommodation. Cons: Cabin is quite old. And the grass area were full with dog stools ( i dont think its entirely the park’s fault theres just irresponsible dog owners who dont pick up after their dogs). Overall not bad, would stay again.

      Good”

      Check-in was smooth although we arrived late and smooth check-out too! For late arrivals, they will leave the keys in a secured box in front of the reception, you just need to pick up the phone & call. Big bathroom with heated lights. Reasonably near to tourist attractions with a car (e.g., Mount Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, Appleshed Museum, Fish Frenzy at Elizabeth St. Pier, Constitution Dock, Salamanca Place, etc, etc), not too far from airport, clean, there is a barbecue stand (we didn't have time to use it though). However, the noise from the highway is quite disturbing. It will also be good if the bunk beds are made before guests arrive. Most travelers are often tired after long flights, hence, it will be great if beds are made before guests' arrivals. The sofa in the living room may need to be replaced. Wifi needs to have a faster speed & preferably with no limit. Overall, a good place to stay.

      Very good”

      Room was very comfortable but the cleaning was a bit sloppy bottom of window in our bedroom had what looked like chocolate hand marks all over it and doors had dirty marks on them as did ceiling as well. Internet was very weak in our room as well

      What a Discovery!”

      Perfect. Can't wait to stay there again. Beautiful gas/wood heater. Spotless, warm and cosy.

      Good location but low on cleanliness”

      Ideal location away from downtown hobart. However, the bed sheets were dirty and we saw gum stuck on the bed frame. Even had to make our own sheets when we arrived for the bunk beds.
