The Old Woolstore is full of Christmas cheer! They’ve just announced a gift for all current and future in-house guests of the apartment hotel in Hobart… free WiFi. For the duration of their stay, guests will have complimentary access to the internet across multiple devices. How’s that for good news from a multi-award-winning accommodation property?
The Old Woolstore: Apartment Hotel in Hobart
The bonus of free WiFi adds to the existing complimentary services at The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel: free parking, gymnasium, guest lounge, business centre and use of the pool facilities at the Hobart Aquatic Centre. They don’t even charge a fee for payments made by credit card.
What I particularly wanted to mention today was the buffet breakfast served in Stockmans Restaurant between 6.30am and 10:00am daily. Open to house guests and the general public, a continential breakfast is just $14.00. An indulgent full hot buffet will set you back $19.50, and when you see what’s on offer, you’ll agree the price is good value.
I did touch on the subject of buffet breakfast in the article we published previously about our stay at The Old Woolstore. I was reminded of the experience thanks to a photo shared via social media. Whoever manages the social media for this particular apartment hotel in Hobart is a genius! At the very least, you should check out The Old Woolstore Facebook page and follow.
Stockmans Restaurant and The Baaa Bar
When we ate at Stockmans Restaurant, I chose the chicken breast for dinner – shallow fried with parmesan and herb crust, served with zucchini and feta tarlet and mustard cream sauce. It was divine, I tell you! If I returned again right now, I would probably choose the same…. although the whole menu was tempting. Gavin had the Chinese barbeque pork cutlet served with Asian greens and rice noodles and thoroughly enjoyed his meal too.
The desserts were also something to write home about. We can personally recommend the chocolate pot served with salted caramel toffee and macadamia nut shortbread. Oh yeah!
Continuing the “good value” theme, patrons in The Baaa Bar are invited to join The Old Woolstore’s Happy Hour and a Half from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, Monday-Friday. They’ll throw in offers like two-for-one house wine and complimentary beer upsizing from 10oz to 14oz. Good value indeed.
Christmas and New Year’s Eve Celebrations
Both Stockmans Restaurant and The Baaa Bar will operate as usual on Christmas Day. The Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in Hobart will also be offering a Christmas dinner option in addition to their standard a la carte menu on December 25. Bookings are essential, and as you can imagine, the option is proving popular, so get in quick. There’s also a few seats still available for a New Year’s Eve buffet dinner ($69 per person) and again… bookings are essential.
