2 night stay in a Premium room, Upper level overlooking Constitution Dock. Great to sit on the small balcony with a drink and watch the boats and weather frolic about. Loft room is generous in size, very clean with modern appliances. As this hotel is located on the pier their is limited free parking on the street nearby. Great location...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Very conveniently located to Salamanca Markets, Mona Pier, a number of very good restaurants. Great outlook on the harbour. The unit we had was very comfortable with a great king size bed. The stairs to the bedroom would be inconvenient for a someone who had mobility issues. Apart from that we will stay there again.

We stayed for 2 nights in November and found these apartments to be centrally located, spotlessly clean and it has super friendly staff ready to help you or simply chat. We were there when it was raining and the lent us massive umbrellas which were really useful. The one thing to keep in mind is the walls are incredibly thin...

Had a great stay in a well located property. The reception staff gave us a friendly & informative welcome. The room was well set up with good laundry facilities provided in the bathroom. On our departure Philipa's cheerful disposition started our day with a smile. A return stay when next in Hobart is a certainty.

The Good. Great location, Modern, Bedding reasonably comfortable, Kitchen facilities adequate. The Bad. Extremely poor design and layout. The main bedroom only had 2 windows which cannot be opened and even if you could, they would open only onto the hallway so no fresh air and no natural lighting available to this room. This bedroom was stifling hot and the...

Dear JR-Rex, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed over your recent stay. The loft-style design of our apartments are quite unique, you’re absolutely right. The design itself stems from the conversion of a 1930’s pier building and I sincerely apologise you did not find it...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The walls between the rooms was a bit thin(woken up by someone in the next unit running down the stairs), limited parking if you have...
