Not much to like. Should be advertised as a pub with rooms. Location was ok. There was a room. It had a bed. It had a toilet and a place to wash oneself. It just had enough to not walk out.
What is the point of security if the back door is open and the windows are secured by a piece of timber. Why not advertise more honestly e.g. don’t expect much as you will only get the bear minimum with not much to enjoy.
Bed was comfortable
Beds had obviously never been moved to be cleaned under Staff communication was very poor Breakfast was terrible Toilets were a disgusting mess and we had to twice ask for toilet paper Price for three people in a pub was over the top
Very handy location for central Hobart and Salamanca Market and I have stayed here many times, The room was clean as ever, and is always pretty quiet considering it is over a pub. Staff are usually really helpful, though this time they were much less friendly - I believe there was a change of management taking place.
I hate to give the Stranger a bad review as I have had so many good times here in the past, but this time really wasn't up to standard. One powerpoint hidden and inaccessible behind the headboard leaving no bedside light on one side. One power[point for the rest of the room, glad I always carry a powerboard with me. Headboard also had the remains of a fluorescent light fitting attached to it - unsightly and possibly dangerous. Neither the new or old manager seemed particularly friendly, which was a shame, as I have had some great nights there chatting with fellow customers and bar staff. On this occasion the place was just deserted. I can only hope the new manager revives the Stranger, be a shame to see it die.
The location is very convenient
The sound proof was very bad. We could hear the sounds of the TV from the next door and people opened and closed the door. Also, the beds were not very comfortable.
