Reviewed 14 July 2014

We stayed 3 days in I bedroom apartment (Apt 2); cosy, comfortable and equipped with all necessities if you wanted to cook or eat at home. The location is ideal for exploring Hobart - easy walk to Salamanca for the markets, restaurants, gift shops and to catch the ferry to MONA (a must!). Martin and Tony are fabulous hosts, sharing great tips for local restaurants, day trips and general Tassie touring advice. We loved our stay at Apartments on Star and certainly plan to return in the near future. Thanks Martin & Tony.

We had a wonderful stay. The location is fantastic for anything to do around the greater Hobart area and Martin and Tony are generous hosts and equip the apartment thoughtfully. Very clean and well kept. Highly recommend staying here.

Every year us four old girls go away together. We met in 1978 in the nurses quarters of the Royal Brisbane Hospital. This year we stayed in Apartments on Star #4 from 5-10 June. Tony and Martin were there to greet us and gave us the low down on the unit and the surrounding area. Their information was excellent and very informative. We were within easy walking distance to Salamanca markets and great local restaurants. We did hire a car to travel further afield. Our time in Hobart was very enjoyable and the unit perfect. Thanks again Tony and Martin , you were a wealth of information and nothing was too much trouble for you. We would certainly recommend these apartments to all.
Home made cumquart jam, fresh fruit, tea and coffee and milk all awaited our arrival....and of course the kettle was freshly boiled

Dear 38Lindy123, Nothing like a nice cup of tea on arrival if there's nothing stronger on offer! Great to hear that you and the girls had an enjoyable stay with us and also managed to fit so much into your short few days. Thank you for your recommendation and taking the time to review us.

My husband and I stayed in Apartment 1 for 4 nights. We arrived in Hobart mid morning and upon checking our phone had already received a text saying the apartment was ready. Tony and Martin were wonderful hosts! The heating was on when we arrived, beautiful music playing from the stereo and the kettle was boiled. They had even given us a jar of their homemade cumquat jam, which was perfect for breakfast! The Apartment is so cosy and comfortable, just like a home away from home.....with a fantastic view! It is within walking distance to Salamanca Place, Sandy Bay shops/restaurants and the harbour. We were out and about most days and it was lovely to come back to a little oasis in the city. Tony and Martin gave us some tips on what to see and where to go which was great. We will definitely be back and only wish we had more time to stay longer. Do yourselves a favour and stay here!!

We stayed in Apartment 1, along with our daughter and her partner. We arrived in the evening, the heating was on for us, the kettle boiled, FRESH milk in the fridge, cups and snack bars and the TV on. The decor is great, clean and neat with adequate supply of crockery, cutlery, the beds were very comfortable, there is another TV in one of the bedrooms. The owners Tony and Martin were very accommodating and knowledgeable about where to shop for supplies, restaurants, sightseeing and saved us some time researching this ourselves. The units (there are 4) are in a great spot, with sea views from Apartment 1, within a 10-15 minute walk to shops, cafes, restaurants, Salamanca Markets and Battery Point. Would love to stay longer next time!

We just returned from a wonderful long weekend away in Apartment # 3. We arrived late Friday night, the lights and heaters were on and the apartment was beautiful & cosy & clean, it really was home away from home. We chatted to Martin & Tony at various times during our stay and nothing was too much trouble, they recommended great restaurants and truly are wonderful hosts going above and beyond! I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling to Hobart.
