My husband & I enjoyed a 3 night stay here at the start of our Tassie trip. The room was super cosy & very well appointed. Definitely treat yourself to a harbour view room and definitely around an in room massage! The choice of restaurants & bars is just fabulous & we enjoyed meals, drinks & snacks in all of them. Great service & super lovely staff. The valet service was efficient & they even took our bags to the room! A super central location within easy walking distance to the main attractions of Hobart. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Tassie. MACq01 is super quirky & very unique.

I recently stayed here, I felt like a bit of a splurge, so I booked one of the Harbour room view rooms. Staff make a great Hotel and this Hotel has it in spades. Very professional. The size of the rooms are extremely generous, even for a 5star Hotel. The Bathroom was amazing, beds very comfy and a nice balcony to get some nice fresh sea air. Nice bars and although I didn’t dine in the Restaurant I did have Room service which was great. Very nice ambient lighting in the room at night too which is a nice touch. I think I might have to book another night very soon……. just might request a room on level 2 though for a better view. Highly recommended Hotel.

We recently stayed here for five nights in a Waterfront room. This hotel is a destination in it's own right and has personality and charm in spades! The rooms are very spacious, well appointed and extremely comfortable. The view from the room was fantastic. Incidentally, we also saw the Hunter Street rooms, and while the view does not compare, they are also really great. There is much to do and see in the hotel complex itself and we enjoyed our time at The Story Bar, Evolve, Old Wharf Restaurant and The Frogmore Lounge. The location of the hotel is ideal for a visit to Hobart. Everything you need is in close proximity. The staff here were so wonderful. We had an issue with our kids not being able to join us last minute due to Covid lockdown, and they were so empathetic and accommodating. They really tried to help us make the most of a bad situation, and we appreciated it so very much. We loved this hotel. We'd previously stayed at the Henry Jones and really liked that too, but on our next visit to Hobart we will most definitely choose MACq 01. :)

Room Tip: Waterfront rooms are definitely worth the extra cost, but Hunter St are still great.

Loved loved this hotel! Unfortunately we were only there for the night, arriving late and then leaving early morning but from check in to check out top marks. Check In was seamless and the staff member was very informative and welcoming. Our room even though it was streetview which for us was fine due to us leaving early morning but can only imagine having a harbour view. The room was spacious also having a seperate area for your luggage which was great so it allowed you to not feel as though you were living out of a suitcase. The room was spotless and decor 10/10. Loved the extra touches such as a fine china tea cup and saucer.... We had a late night dinner in the restaurant, again 10/10 from the service and the meal was lovely, breakfast too. If you are travelling to Hobart highly recommend.

I have stayed in many hotels all around the world and I only stay in luxury hotels, but this one tops them all! Where to start? From the moment you walk in your are greeted with kind and helpful staff. Check-in is fast and friendly. We got there early and our room wasn't ready but the staff took our bags and told us they'd text when it was ready, which they did. Valet parking was quick and staff always greeted you with a smile and chat. We stayed in an Executive Waterfront Suite (Lady Jane Franklin) and it was HUGE! Gorgeous waterfront views from the sleeping area and the lounge area. The bathroom was extremely large with a huge bath which was divine and the towels were thick and luxurious. Beautiful Appelles toiletries were plentiful and varied. The pillows were fantastic and the bed was amazing, like sleeping on a cloud with high thread count linens. This hotel offers guests in Suites breakfast, not your stock standard buffet breakfast but a truly delicious sit-down menu breakfast. The food was absolutely glorious! Macq01 offers their guests three storyteller tours free to their guests - do them all, they are so interesting and informative! The guides Collette and Justin as just treasures of the hotel. They are both so passionate and knowledgeable about Hobart. We learnt so much that we wouldn't have if we didn't take part in the tours. Collette and Justin were such a special part of our first trip to Hobart! The hotel offers a wonderful restaurant and two bars. We enjoyed all of them! Make sure you book in early to secure your restaurant booking as it gets quite busy. It's also in a great location. Short stroll to Salamanca, city shopping and various other sports in Hobart. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. They were more than happy to answer questions, make reservations for you, offer suggestions on things to do - you name it, they did it with a smile! Don't bother booking any where else, you won't find any better! We can't wait to return to Hobart and the Macq01. Thanks Sandie & Brent
