Location SO close to Salamanca Markets which are a must-do if you're in Hobart on a Saturday. I contacted Management prior to booking to ensure the 2 bedroom unit would be suitable for our stay as we were travelling with our elderly mum who needs wheelchair assistance. Although the apartment was not actually designed for wheelchairs, it was ideal for her with an ensuite with a walk in shower and plenty of room (as she can take a few steps). Staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was comfortable, allocating a ground floor unit close to the entrance. The only drawback for us was the parking as 'first come, first served' basis. We were fortunate to have been able to get parking each evening, but we would have had a problem if there had been no spaces left as Mum really can't walk more than a couple of steps and the area is quite hilly and not really conducive to wheelchair pushing. For disabled guests, it would be good if a car parking space could be allocated and confirmed. Apartment was very clean, kitchen well appointed and furnishings quite tidy and clean. We too found the beds in need of updating but we have read that new bedding is on its way! We had a bit of a view of the harbour which was wonderful when mum got tired and just wanted to sit with a cup of tea looking out at the lovely view. I would highly recommend this property for its location and the way Management went out of their way to assist us with our requests. We're booking in again this weekend for a couple of nights and will always stay at this (or their sister property on the Pier) when in Hobart. Well done!!!
