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.
