“Very nice Apartment close to Salamanca”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The apartment is very modern and very nice. Made us family feels like at home. We stayed at the Salamanca Battery Point which is Great and close to the Jackman & Mcross Bakery too.
There are couple of Minor issues which I think can be a problem for other people staying at this place. The entrance to the Apartment is a Very Steep Stairs into our apartments. So if you have issue with Height, Salamanca Battery Point is not for you. Second is the Shower is a bit silly as you have to bring the glass door towards you in order to stop the water splashing out. But Overall I would gladly come back to stay at the same apartment in future and it was a Pleasant stay.

My friend and I stayed at the dockside apartments for our firt trip to Hobart.

The apartment was absolutely stunning. Beyond my expectations and the photos on line dont do it justice.

The location is perfect especially with regard to the famous Salamanca Markets. We simply walked down stairs and we were at the markets.

Even though they set the markets up early Saturday morning the apartment is sound proofed and we didn't hear them at all.

We loved it and can't wait to come back again.

The Salamanca Dockside apartments are favourites with many of our guests. They are very centrally located in Salamanca Place and the exposed sandstone walls really add to their appeal. As you noted they are very soundproof as well!

We stayed at the Gibsons Mill Penthouse room 301 in Hobart and it was Fantastic. The 2 king rooms were huge and the 2 rooms upstairs were sufficient. Great location right across from the Ferry terminal and a stroll to salamanca place. The views were great and the interior was clean and fresh. We were a party of 5 and this place was great.

If i had to be picky i would say that the method of getting the keys and finding the place was somewhat of a challenge....thank goodness for google maps and carry on baggage. The heater in the place is great if you are sleeping on the bottom floor, however if you are on the top floor add 10 degrees. The bathroom downstairs is not to private, in that if you are in the bedroom next door you can hear everything! This would be the first penthouse i have stayed in where you had to pay for the mini bar, though really not a big deal. Milk is only replenished once, and considering how many people it sleeps and how small the milk bottle is, its a little cheap of the venue to not replenish this. The venue maintenance needs a little attention to detail, e.g., incorrect welcome letter and no prices of the maxi bar. However, in saying all this i am being quite critical. I would in a heart beat stay here again and could not recommend this place enough.

Thank you for your review of your stay in our Gibson's Mill penthouse and for your constructive criticisms. We do have 5 different locations around Hobart's waterfront and one central office but do our best to explain the check in process to guests in our online information, confirmation calls and with the help of our maps. We have staff answering the phone 24 hours/day/7 days/week and encourage guests to call either of our phone numbers with direction or any other questions at anytime of the day or night for assistance. We do supply milk for the first night of every stay but do not replenish it as we find that many people do not use it or prefer an alternative such as light milk or soy milk. We look forward to welcoming you back to stay with us on your next trip to Hobart.

After the first time we luckily stumbled on this place, it has become our home away from home in Hobart. It is ultra modern, huge and in a great location - within walking distance to fabulous Mures (go upstairs), my favourite Japanese Orizuru and a nice (longer) walk to Salamanca. We've stayed in the 2 bed executive and 3 bed penthouse apartments - all fantastic. Can get a bit noisy with people dragging their bags along the pebbled floor along the corridor but nowhere near the bedrooms so generally OK. The customer service can be variable (sometimes they haven't called us back for a booking or enquiry) but the last few times it's been great. And the front reception was awesome. Highly recommend this place for a lovely stay and good value for money. Jam Packed just below it is the best option for breakfast (although some of the wait staff can be a bit solemn).

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. It sounds like both apartment types you've stayed in have been good choices for you. There is a lot of information on our website and as we have 47 apartmtnets in 5 locations it's a great place to start when making a choice on where to stay with us.

Spent two nights in an apartment last weekend. The apartment was spacious, modern and well appointed. It's located in a good location and included secure parking. On the downside, my bedroom overlooked the Ports building and I had semi-trailers roaring up and down the road all night. I had 2 nights of very interrupted sleep and couldn't wait to return home. Couldn't work out how to turn on the tv and we were cold at night. Light switches confusing. Water from the shower also ran all over the bathroom floor and had to use towels to mop it up. Rooms are not made up on Sundays which is very poor considering the cost of the accommodation. Would stay again but only after carefully selecting a room with no noise.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. It sounds like you stayed in one of the IXL apartments-either an Executive or a Sub-Penthouse. We encourage guests to let us know during their stay if they are having issues with their apartment. Normally things like how the heat, TV and lights work can be explained quickly and easily by our staff on the phone or with a visit to the apartment. We would always prefer to make a guest's stay enjoyable while they are staying with us rather than apologize for issues after they've left. All of our apartments are located in and around Hobart's vibrant waterfront which is a working port with lots of restaurants and bars. We do inform guests of our locations on our website and with all of the online suppliers that we use. If guests have real noise concerns we encourage them to contact us before booking for assistance with their apartment choice. Our decision not to service the apartments on Sundays is based on guest feedback; most would prefer to sleep in or relax in the apartment and not be disturbed by our housekeeping staff. We are always available on Sundays for extra towels and amenities.

We stayed in the IXL 3-bed penthouse and it was brilliant. Huge apartment, fully decked out, amazing views, with clearly lots of money and effort gone in to makeing sure the place is "luxurious". A suite at the adjacent Henry Jones Art Hotel would be half the size of this and three times the price and I would recommend to anyone travelling to Hobart.

The 3 bedroom penthouse is ticking all the boxes at the moment! Lots of space for the two of you and very well suited to groups of families and friends. Up to 6 people will have plenty of room to move in these apartments.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent IXL 3 bedroom penthouse stay. It's great to see that you enjoyed your time with us so much! The kitchens in all of our apartments are well fitted out so that you can cook the great Tasmanian produce that is available at the markets and farm gates in the area. Glad to see you were able to take advantage of some of the fantastic food on offer in the state.
