Sullivans Cove Apartments - Hunter Street
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 April 2013

We stayed at the Sullivans Cove, Gibson Mill Apartments for the weekend. The Gibson Mill apartments are funky, clean and have a full kitchen with enough room to relax on the spacious lounge or have a dinner party at the large dining table. They are very central to the city for shopping, Salamanca and are almost opposite the Ferry Terminal for a trip to MONA Museum or down to Bruny Island. Only hesitation is the street side apartment we stayed in shared a common wall with the pub next door who rocked on to 2am in the morning.

Thank you for your feedback on our newest apartment location. As I said to a previous reviewer, our apartments are located in busy, vibrant areas of Hobart and if noise is a real concern let us know when booking and we will help you make the right choice.

My extended family and I recently spent a week in Hobart. We stayed some nights in the ixl 4 bedroom penthouse apartment) see separate review and some nights in the admirals penthouse on Brooke street - part of guest waterfront complex.

The admirals penthouse is on the waterfront a 2 minute walk from Salamanca place. Decked out in luxurious red walls, plush carpet and chandeliers it was in many respects luxury fitting an admiral! The bathrooms were functional and would have been luxurious in their day but starting to show their age.

The views from the apartment frankly spectacular. The unusually balmy weather had us outside on the deck enjoying boats coming and going from the dock

The noise especially on Friday and Saturday night was frankly not great. The location of the apartment was right next to some pumping clubs and pubs which went off to the wee hours. For those of us with small children or who were light sleepers it was disturbing to sleep. Also a tip for those who are staying turn off the intercom as well wishes "buzzed" a couple of times in the early hours!!!

The noise may not be so much an issue early in the week when pubs clubs and restaurants don't keep long hours.

A great location for walking to waterfront restaurants and for daily walks. Also a stones throw from the conference centre and the Mona And bruny island ferries.

Beautiful l occitane products provided as were all basic living requirements in the apartment including tea coffee etc. beautifully heated.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. The Admiral's Penthouse is in a great, central location and has lots of room. Due to the layout (which you can see on our website) it is best suited to family stays. All of our apartments are located in and around Hobart's vibrant waterfront area and though noise is not generally a problem in our apartments if you really need quiet it's best to call reception and let us help you with your choice.

We stayed in the Admirals Sullivan Cover apartment. The apartment is sleek with very new and modern amenities.

It is located right on top of the Drunken Admiral and easy walk to everything (Salamanca Market, Museum) and easy drive to the Royal Botanic Gardens.

This is a perfect location for Hobart. Plenty of restaraunts, shops and art around to look at.

The only downside is the walls are a bit thin and could hear the apartment above us while trying to go to sleep but that can be fixed with a noise app on your phone.

Good value for money and we would stay again.

The Admiral's Suite is a particularly spacious apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large deck. The front windows have great views across Hunter St to the fishing boats. We're glad it was such a good choice for you and your family.

Stayed at this place over the Easter weekend. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment at the end of Kelly Street, Battery Point overlooking Salamanca Place.

The apartment is fitted out beautifully, almost like staying at your own home. The apartment is on the second level of a building on Salamanca Place. Apartment 1 consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a fully contained kitchen and a nice sitting areas with comfortable couches.

Two large wooden doors open out over Salamanca Place with gives fantastic views of the market place on saturday morning. A nice place to sit and eat breakfast and enjoy the views.

This place is good for a family, however it may not suit couples as much. The main bathroom has glass walls. Unfortunately someone has decided that it would be good if artistic circles were cut in them, leaving gaping wholes for people to look in. Whilst mature people wont have an issue, those who would like a smidgen of privacy should avoid staying in the second room.

The location is second to none, on the waterfront and very close to the numerous bars and restaurants that exist in the area. Can't recommend highly enough.

This is an executive apartment.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay at one of Salamanca Dockside apartments. They are fantastic apartments right on Salamanca Place, beautifully renovated and decorated spaces housed in the historic sandstone warehouses in this vibrant district. .

Sullivans Cove Apartments are a number of different apartments located around the Dock/ city areas. We stayed at Gibson Mills which is a converted flour warehouse. These apartments were clean, comfortable, well located, good heating, had everything you need for a few days stay. But on the downside, they were naturally dark with very little light; small windows; and all exacerbated by dark furniture and furnishings. It didn't matter how much light was on, it was still an overall feeling of being like a mushroom. For this reason, I wouldn't stay here again ... we travel to Hobart at least once a year, so I am running out of options for places to stay. However, if darkness doesn't worry you, then they're fine. Make sure you have breakfast at Daci Daci Bakery (see my review).

As our Gibson's Mill location is very new we have encouraged all of our guests to provide us with feedback so that we can make any necessary adjustments or add things we may have overlooked. This feedback has resulted in the installation of full length mirrors, more bathroom shelving and more lighting. We do have 4 other locations around Hobart's waterfront, one of them may suit your next visit to Tasmania.

With the crazy check in our of the way we walked only about 400 meters to the Gibson Mill Apartments which was an amazing location right between the CBD and Salamanca. The hotel must have been freshly painted or renovated because there was an amazing smell of fresh paint.
What I can I say? Everything was perfect!! It is seriously above 4 stars!
the bedding was the best I have slept in!
Just wonderful! Please conciser this hotel! I will be coming back again!

Thank you for your review of your stay with us. Gibson's Mill is very new and we're glad you enjoyed your stay so much. Check in for all of our 5 locations is at our office on Hunter St but all of the apartments are close by, especially Gibson's Mill, less than 10 minutes on foot.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at our newest location-Gibson's Mill. Gibson's Mill has only been open for a couple of months and as you say are in a great location central to all the waterfront and Salamanca have to offer.
