What our customers are saying

"So happy to have found Hadley's Hotel!
This beautiful and imposing heritage building is the perfect place to stay in Hobart, right in the CBD and so close to the MONA ferry wharf, the harbour and Salamanca Place. Also, there's a Jackman & McRoss cafe just around the corner, perfect for a great breakfast and excellent coffee.
The owners of Hadley’s are dedicated to restoring the glory and position within the life of Hobart that the hotel has held since the 19thC. It's great to see and I'm looking forward to seeing the upcoming reconfiguration and redecoration of the foyer and reception area.
It's clear that they are focusing on their staff, not just the building. Every staff member we spoke to was friendly, helpful and enthusiastic about the hotel's future.
Our room was large and very comfortable, with lots of room to move about in and space to relax. The bed was excellent with crisp white sheets and great pillows. So easy to get a great night’s sleep after walking all day around beautiful Hobart!
We'll definitely stay at Hadley's Hotel again."

"There has been very careful attention to recapturing the period details in decor and atmosphere. Great food service, both for the high tea and meals, including the bar. Very comfortable rooms including the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Without exception the staff are warm, personable and knowledgeable about the hotel and its services to assist with any question. Very hard to better this standard, so I'll be back."
