              Great location. 100 metres down the hill to local shops, cafes, and great pub, 5 minutes the other way to Salamanca Place. Rooms a bit sparse, but clean and comfortable. Only problem, tiny fridge had no racks or shelves, everything balanced on the floor of the fridge, and fell out when I opened the door.

              Acceptable”

              Pros: Good location to most eateries, the salamanca market and supermarkets. Cons: The room that we stayed, is very dusty and it doesnt provide some facilities in the room, such as electric kettle, BUT there is cups. Was having high expectation for this stay bcuz the price we paid for is slightly higer than the rest, and we definitely felt is not worth the value. Even the common area from our door to walk down the flight of stairs to their reception, the rails were so dusty that caused me to have allergic reaction. Lastly no lift.

              Nearby to shops and iconic places.As we stay at 3rd floor, it’s a bit hard to move baggage by stairs. No lift. Not suitable for elderly people that have problem walking up so many stairs. Overall, it’s nice place.

              Due to a mainland long weekend and school holidays all the low cost accommodation was booked out, but Blue Hills had rooms. Considering the great location we were happy to return there. Walking distance to the WestPoint casino and Salamanca Market. Only problem this time was noisy next door neighbours but they quietened down after 11:00pm so no real problems.

              It was a generally good stay, there is free parking and staff who check us in is friendly. There is also free Internet access for 1 pax only. It is a stone thrown from the market and dock area (around 10,15 mins walk) .

              The staff is friendly and helpful. The price was very little for a room in Hobart. The Hotel is located very close to the city. The first room we were in, smelled really bad for a non-smoking room...so we changed in another room which has windows that can be opened. Even though the smell was bad and I'm sure this was before a smoking room. In conclusion, I would not recommend this place.

              The insta worthy lobby decor does not translate to the rooms. Doors bang shut when guests leave their room, can hear guest talking in adjacent room, cold air seeps through into toilet, room had old musky carpeting. Carried suitcases up the stairs to the 3rd floor. The good beds were the saving grace.

              We spent 2 nights in Blue Hills Motel. We got a room on the ground floor which was renovated. The room was clean and had everything what we needed. There are a lot of stores, cafes and other shops in walking distance. The room door doesn't have any sound isolation and you can hear people walking on the hall and opening/closing door on the floor. Which was a little bit annoying. And the parking is first-come, first-serve basic. Generally I recommend Blue Hills Motel

              Great location. 100 metres down the hill to local shops, cafes, and great pub, 5 minutes the other way to Salamanca Place. Rooms a bit sparse, but clean and comfortable. Only problem, tiny fridge had no racks or shelves, everything balanced on the floor of the fridge, and fell out when I opened the door.

              Acceptable”

              Pros: Good location to most eateries, the salamanca market and supermarkets. Cons: The room that we stayed, is very dusty and it doesnt provide some facilities in the room, such as electric kettle, BUT there is cups. Was having high expectation for this stay bcuz the price we paid for is slightly higer than the rest, and we definitely felt is not worth the value. Even the common area from our door to walk down the flight of stairs to their reception, the rails were so dusty that caused me to have allergic reaction. Lastly no lift.

              Nearby to shops and iconic places.As we stay at 3rd floor, it’s a bit hard to move baggage by stairs. No lift. Not suitable for elderly people that have problem walking up so many stairs. Overall, it’s nice place.

              Location Price Availability

              Due to a mainland long weekend and school holidays all the low cost accommodation was booked out, but Blue Hills had rooms. Considering the great location we were happy to return there. Walking distance to the WestPoint casino and Salamanca Market. Only problem this time was noisy next door neighbours but they quietened down after 11:00pm so no real problems.

              The staff is very friendly, there was free parking. The place is closed to Mures, a very nice seafood restaurant near Victory Dock. We are given level 3, and it is facing the mountains. Great view.

              It was a generally good stay, there is free parking and staff who check us in is friendly. There is also free Internet access for 1 pax only. It is a stone thrown from the market and dock area (around 10,15 mins walk) .

              The taps were falling off in the Bathroom but worked, a small amount of investment would make this a more pleasant hotel, comfortable bed, the furnishings are dated and they are similar to the 1970's in style For the price it was ok

              The staff is friendly and helpful. The price was very little for a room in Hobart. The Hotel is located very close to the city. The first room we were in, smelled really bad for a non-smoking room...so we changed in another room which has windows that can be opened. Even though the smell was bad and I'm sure this was before a smoking room. In conclusion, I would not recommend this place.

              Good value for money & good size rooms with fabulous views. Be aware that there are flights of stairs to climb to your room & it's difficult to find the entrance from Sandy Bay Road. Drive to back of the hotel via St George's Terrace.

              The insta worthy lobby decor does not translate to the rooms. Doors bang shut when guests leave their room, can hear guest talking in adjacent room, cold air seeps through into toilet, room had old musky carpeting. Carried suitcases up the stairs to the 3rd floor. The good beds were the saving grace.

              We spent 2 nights in Blue Hills Motel. We got a room on the ground floor which was renovated. The room was clean and had everything what we needed. There are a lot of stores, cafes and other shops in walking distance. The room door doesn't have any sound isolation and you can hear people walking on the hall and opening/closing door on the floor. Which was a little bit annoying. And the parking is first-come, first-serve basic. Generally I recommend Blue Hills Motel
