Budget motel located just outside the city centre
Situated just away from the Tasmanian citys centre, the Hobart Tower Motel provides affordable, no-frills accommodation that is suitable for those looking to enjoy the attractions of the city.
Located next to the Queens Domain and Royal Botanical Gardens, the 3-star property provides a scenic location for visitors to fan out and explore the city.

Visitors exploring the city for pleasure should start with the Queens Domain which is nearby. Not only does this large green park offer a quiet and serene environment in which to stroll, picnic, or just sit, it also doubles as a fine exercise venue, with jogging and skating popular activities. Within the park stands the Hobart Cenotaph. This Egyptian Obelisk type structure serves as a memorial to all those lost in the two World Wars and subsequent battles.
The citys botanical gardens also provide a fine backdrop for those looking to enjoy a calm pace of life. These gardens contain some 14 hectares of flora, much of which is a part of conservation collections. Mount Wellington, which overlooks the city, is another location to visit for those looking to enjoy the natural world and a rich biodiversity.
