    The view was awesome! We changed rooms in order to extend our stay and got to view the Taste of Tasmania sheds for the last night of theTaste, and then Constitution Dock and the Henry Jones building.

    Read reviews prior to booking re paper thin walls. Found this quite awkward when children (8-16) could clearly hear a couple in the bedroom next door clearly "enjoying" themselves.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Proximity to everything. The service from the staff at the apartments.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The view was magic, the lights on the water at night the tall ships in the harbour, all breath taking. The location was central. The apartment was bright and modern and the room service made the stay a dream.

  • Single
    5.8

    The position for touring the city was excellent. Also the view from the window was interesting and ever-changing.

    The ventilation of the apratment was insufficient. The bedrooms were uncomfortably hot on the nights we stayed. Having digital tv available only on the upstairs tv was also inconvenient. There was nowhere for the two kids staying in the upstairs room next to the stairs, to place their clothes - insufficient storage.

  • Family with children
    9.4

    It was great, we really enjoyed our stay, the staff were absolutely lovely, being near the main part of hobart and the cruises and the view, lots of restaurants, rooms very warm, loved having the small kitchnette just right to cook up small snacks, porridge for breakfast or if we wanted we could run down and buy beautiful fish from the vans along the pier and make a salad back at the room.

    Walls too thin, could hear everything going on in the next room - also we had double bed which was 2 single beds pushed together. I prefer a double /queen/ king size bed without the ridge up the middle. Being a family with 2 adults and one older child in the evening we found it not so easy to relax as there was only a small couch which was not luxurious compared to the rest of the room and could only fit two people on it.

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    Well located and iconic water views. Staff were courteous wiyhout being friendly. The apartment was comfortable and well designed without being luxurious.

    It was noisy. The external noise from boats in the dock is a consequence of its location, but the noise from adjoining rooms was somewhat unsettling. The bedroom was on a mezzanine floor upstairs with the bathroom downstairs which was inconvenient during the night. The beds were too firm for our tastes and teh pillows uncomfortable. On Saturday night they were hosting two parties downstairs and the music was loud and unavoidable. Not what you'd expect for more than $400/night.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    I loved the location - so close to the city and especially the Salamanca Markets. Great pubs and restaurants all in easy walking distance. It was great looking out to the view of the boats on the wharf. Good accomodation for a family.

    The main bedroom got a bit hot at night and the extraction fan was too noisy to be left on all night. The normal ceiling fan helped though.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    We loved the location, it was extremely convienient, close to everything.. Any questions we had were answered promptly and efficeintly by the staff

    3 out of the 4 door passes did not work

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    location-views from the room are sublime! Cleaning staff were fantastic-so accomodating and efficient and friendly. Facilities were so complete-washer dryer, coffee plunger etc-all those thoughtful things. We loved the social sounds of people from the cafes below but it wasn't loud enough to bother us or disturb sleep.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    So close to everything and a good atmosphere .

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Location on the pier and view of the harbour

    Noise from surrounding rooms. For the price per night, we can expect not to be disturbed by neighbours.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Location was fantastic. Rooms were very clean and well serviced.

    I just feel for older people having the bedroom upstairs could be a problem.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Position with the water and boat views and the fantastic adjacent T2 restaurant

    I thought the price (I am a single traveller) for a non peak time stay and average rooms (esp upstairs bedroom, downstiats bathroom) was high

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Luxury and comfort in the rooms and close to all amenities.

  • Single
    10.0

    This is a great example of a apartment suites with a luxe hotel standard of service. All the balcony suites have an outstanding view of the habour.
