Guests in a rush as ho­tel opens doors

Mercury (Hobart) - - NEWS - HELEN KEMPTON •

HO­BART’S lat­est bou­tique ac­com­mo­da­tion will open its doors to­mor­row and is al­ready booked out for the two week­ends of Dark Mofo.

The city has been cry­ing out for new vis­i­tor rooms and book­ings started com­ing in al­most as soon as Moss Ho­tel’s book­ing en­gine opened a month ago.

Rod Black, the gen­eral man­ager of Moss Ho­tel in Sala­manca Place, said book­ings were also com­ing in thick and fast for Ho­bart’s tra­di­tion­ally packed out New Year’s pe­riod when it not only wel­comes the Syd­ney to Ho­bart com­peti­tors but also the thou­sands who at­tend the Taste of Tas­ma­nia.

Stage one, known as Moss 39, has 20 rooms while stage two — Moss 25 — will be open be­fore Christ­mas and have 21 rooms.

“Po­ten­tial vis­i­tors have seen us pop up and jumped on board very quickly,” Mr Black said.

“Ho­bart cer­tainly needs more ho­tel rooms to ac­com­mo­date vis­i­tors to the city and we are con­fi­dent the new ho­tel will be very well re­ceived.”

Owned by the Behrakis fam­ily, both ad­dresses will have the same man­age­ment with sep­a­rate re­cep­tions.
