Battery Point Holiday Apartments
Ranked #23 of 55 Speciality Lodging in Hobart
Reviewed 25 March 2014

This place deserves 3 and a half stars but unable to do half stars when doing a review, or I would! Firstly the location is great. Battery Point is an historic area of Hobart and the apartments are located in a quiet residential area with many impressive old houses. It is close to a few good restaurants and pubs, and only a short walk to a pleasant leafy park and Salamanca and the dock area. The apartments are clean and comfortable enough but they are somewhat dated, although I wouldn't let that put me off staying there again. It is a bit of disadvantage not having onsite managers to ask questions about nearby attractions, directions etc as there was only a very small amount of tourist brochures left in the apartment we had. It is also a bit unusual being texted the apartment number and code of the secure lock box on the door of the apartment on the day of arrival in order to obtain the key, although this arrangement worked out OK for us without any hitches. One thing I did find annoying is that the single beds in the second bedroom didn't have bedheads and consequently the curtains hung down onto the pillows on the beds which was irritating when trying to sleep.

Room Tip: We were in a rear downstairs apartment with no special view but quiet. The upstairs apartments would...

We spent 4 nights in a 2-bedroom apartment.The location can't be beaten, just a short walk to Salamanca through the very picturesque Arthurs Circus. Peaceful and quiet - our apartment had a balcony with a view of the river (great sunrises) and lovely to sit out on with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Very clean and comfortable - in fact everything you could want. The complimentary Wi-Fi was also much appreciated. Marlene & Mark - you have thought of everything - heaps of tourist info (some obviously left by earlier occupants with some great suggestions for things to do and places to eat). The off-street parking is another bonus. Battery Point has to be one of the best parts of Hobart, so close to the city, Coles and Woolworths not too far away on Sandy Bay Road, and a host of eateries, cafes and bakeries nearby. We would definitely stay here again on a visit to Hobart and will definitely recommend to friends.

Room Tip: We had Apartment 8 - upstairs and very private.

Excellent location, a stone's throw from Salamanca, but super quiet. Loads of really good restaurants and pubs nearby (with many menus to peruse in the apartment), but also a well equipped kitchen for creating your own meals. A very spacious and homely apartment with convenience of off-street parking. Would definitely stay again!

We have stayed in a number of short stay apartments in Hobart over the past three years and all have been good to very good, we would however rate Battery Point Holiday Apartments as comfortably the best. The units were initially built as good quality apartments and they have stood the test of time. They are generous in size and well ventilated with windows that open. The kitchen is fully equipped and completely adequate. The best feature is the superb location ,quiet but with four coffee shops within 150 metres. Overall we have found it great value for money. We have been here for three weeks. Max and Kerry Jensen.

Room Tip: All are fine

We have just spent 5 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's lovely having more space than just a hotel room and the option of self catering. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. It was great to have the use of a washing machine and dryer after travelling around and having free off road parking was an added bonus. Some of the furniture/fittings are looking a bit dated but are still in excellent order. Free wi-fi and a huge bed were just more plus marks for this accommodation. Battery Point is a lovely location, you are surrounded by historic buildings but are within a short downhill stroll to Salamanca Place. There are plenty of restaurant options in Battery Point if you don't fancy the uphill walk after dinner. We can recommend D'Angelos (booking advised) and Magic Curries.

Thanks for your lovely review and sharing your experiences. The majority of our guests stay for more than just a couple of days so it is important to have lots of space and the convenience of fully laundry facilities, off street parking and free wifi. Regards Marlene

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was fantastic. The location was hard to beat in the old part of Hobart, and only 5minute walk to salamanca, and plenty of nice cafés and restaurants around the corner. The apartment itself was very well equipped with everything we could need (including full kitchen, washer and dryer) and the beds were very comfortable. Free wifi was a nice bonus too. We will certainly return next time in Hobart!

This was our first trip to Tassie and as we were spending 5 nights in Hobart we spent a bit of time looking before deciding on the Battery Point Holiday Apartments, we were extremely happy we did. Marlene was fantastic to deal with, the room was large, clean, functional and, unlike the CBD accommodation, you get your own off street car park and don't have to pay parking fees. We like the convenience of self contained apartments and our unit had everything that we needed as well as plenty of tourist info. Whilst the apartment was great, the real winner for us was the location. Battery Point is a fantastic area with beautiful historic buildings and the apartment is a short walk to Salamanca Place, the Waterfront and the Hobart CBD. A $10 cab fare gets you to Wrest Point Casino and it is only a 5 minute drive to Coles or Wollies in Sandy Bay Road. The added bonus is that within a 3 to 5 minute walk from the apartment are two great pubs, a heap of restaurants and cafes and one of the best bakeries/cafes that we have ever been to, (bread and butter pudding - yummo). We would definitely stay here again and would recommend Battery Point Holiday Apartments to everyone.

Hi and thanks so much for your review. So glad that you enjoyed your first trip to Hobart and choosing to stay with us at Battery Point. Its a real bonus having a fantastic selection of eateries just minutes from your doorstep. The bakery just up the road "Jackman and McRoss" is also one of our favourite lunch spots. Hope to see you another time. Regards Marlene
