Customer Review

Great food, the only problem we had was that the order was not totally correct. I know they were busy, but getting the customers order correct should be up there on the priorities list as well as good service

The hotel was adjacent to the spirit of tasmania, which was convenient on arrival... check-in was quick... room was comfortable.. amenities clean but not enough room to park car in Hotel carpark on arrival... waited till patrons left to get a closer spot to Hotel... food was enjoyable..

A warm welcome from the staff, efficient ordering and service. We had bacon wrapped scallops (shared entree) and the lamb rump and beef cheeks for mains. The food was well presented, good sized portions and arrived hot and tasty. Kudos to the staff, who checked in on us to make sure we were happy, several times during the night

Spacious family room, nice view looking at the Spirit of Tasmania in action. We received help with late check in which was much appreciated. Clean, quiet and affordable.
Anton Yong
Great location right near the harbor and close to the arrival area for spirit of Tasmania. However the room smelt like an old library book and they are attached to a bar so lots of loud music and patrons going until about 11pm.

Had a lovely family gathering at The Central recently & as always, the food was fantastic & the service was great for being a busy establishment.
Geoff Piggott
Nice comfortable room and friendly staff.

Meals expensive, for someone on a pension, but, nice. Restaurant staff are friendly and efficient.
Shamindra Sengupta
Loved this place. Clean, comfortable rooms & washrooms, basic amenities like tea / coffee maker (even a toaster), VFM pricing, room with a view towards the SoT berthing pier, a great reasonably priced restaurant (Central) on the ground floor, and free parking - what more does one want?

Shower was good, bed was comfortable. Old hotel with stairs and no lift. Heater did not work and wifi was weak. Parking was free but limited spots.

I have given 5 stars because of the girls they were Awesome good to deal with polite helpful and always happy. As for the room Bed was hard uncomfortable 😅 shower pressure was dreadful even worse when someone else turned the water on. no pressure. Room was spotless except for Pubic hairs in bath and were soap holder was.. Your meals are Amazing good size well presented. 😉

Not 100% sure I stay again shame about bed & Shower. To the ladies that served me and checked me in great asset to Formby Hotel Business.

Thanks for making it a pleasant stay

Room clean and tidy, linen fresh, comfortable bed. Had pork belly meal delivered hot from the hotel kitchen, delicious. The woman checking us in was very friendly and accomodating.

The rooms were old but clean and tidy. Bathroom was good and the shower strong. The meals downstairs were first class. Prefer more secure parking but a very nice place to stay.
Walter van Praag
I love eating at the Formby hotel. Best food and dishes. I know people always enjoy staying here too, and often it's the most reasonably priced hotel in Devonport. But food wise I can vouch for The Formby!
Dwayne O'Neill

Cheap and good location. Get to the Rec Room for a great pic of the spirit of tassie when she's coming or going. Has Great and instant hot water in the shower which is a big bonus on a cold tassie day
Peter Allison
I didn't have high expectations as it was a last minute booking. Turns out this place is great! We are at the restaurant below which was amazing. Selection and quality of food was great. The room was very comfortable. The shower was the best Hotel shower I have ever had. The beds were comfortable with an assortment of pillows. Staff were friendly and helpful.
John Isaac
Really nice food and good choice of drinks.
Mondo Quinn
Situated right in the city. Comfortable budget hotel. Very nice bed and pillows (always a "plus") The restaurant is superb.
Bruce Chessell
Lovely, the folks that run this place are truly friendly, anything we've asked has been answered with real feeling. Food is delicious, nice selection of wines in fact all beverages are covered. The room is clean with a nice shower bath. We arrived late on the Spirit, but no problems room warmed up. We decided to stay an extra day because of this.
Rick Frank
Cheap and cheerful, friendly helpful staff. Very presentable room and bathroom.
Accomodation was.. interesting. As we walked in the hall we were greeted by 10 or so pairs of dirty boots and clothes so the hallway literally just smelt like a farm (I did tell my partner I wanted to give him the Tassie experience, but not to that extent). Then we got into the room and it was alright, floors were super creaky and old, but it was clean. When they warn you about the noise they aren't kidding. We stayed on a Monday and could hear everything.. You get what you pay for! If you're on a budget it's a good option.
Darren Treloar
Lovely check in, great staff, room a little noisey due to other guests. But a great place to stay close to the port
Sally Jeffree
Great staff, great food recommend 😋❤️
Robert Clark
We went to the restaurant for lunch. $33 for a steak gristle sandwich. Lamb (tiny) meatballs overcooked, gravy was wrong and lumpy mash
Errol Lawrance
It's OK. Food nice, but can take a while when busy.
Kym McKenzie
Had an amazing dinner here. I had Pork belly with roasted carrots and beans and the husband had lamb rack. The chef does the most amazing sauces to go with these. Best pub meal I have ever had. Staff were lovely and attentive but not over baring. Fantastic!

Worst night ever. Ruin my trip in Tassie. I tried to sleep around 10pm to get a early flight the day after and downstairs bar is very loud and noisy. It's like I were sleeping in the middle of the bar. The reception did not mention at all when I checked in. After I checked my email and found out they have Saturday night things. But they should mention it when I check it as I were travelling and do not really have time check email. If I knew it, I will definitely find another place to stay.

There was nobody mention Saturday night entertainment to me when I checked in.
Simon Smith
Food was really GOOD, I had pork belly and it was so tender. It is one of best pub meals I have had in Tasmania. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back.
