Hampden At Battery Point Apartments
Ranked #18 of 55 Speciality Lodging in Hobart
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I'd read reviews before picking this apartment and one of the comments was that a couple couldn't get the combined washer/dryer going despite their technical ability. My husband is a technical advisor and I have a degree BUT despite this after putting in lots of time and effort, we could not get the machine to wash properly and it did not dry any clothes. This was near the end of our holiday and we left with a large bag of wet washing. It put quite a dampner on our holiday. Despite this, the apartment was very well located, quite luxurious, bed was comfortable and we did enjoy our stay overall. Could the owners PLEASE test the washer/dryers and provide simple, no fail instructions

Dear M C,

Thank you for your review of Hampden at Battery Point Apartments. It's great that you enjoyed your stay. I'm really terribly sorry that you weren't able to dry your clothes. We do have staff on call 24/7, as well as maintenance who are based at one of our other properties just 200m away and we are always available for guests who need assistance. I'm disappointed that we weren't able to assist you in this case and that you had to leave with wet washing. We have reviewed all our apartments to ensure the clear, concise instructions are in place; thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your impressions, and we do hope to welcome you back again soon.

Kind regards,

Kat and the Red Awnings team

Have just spent 4 nights in Apartment105. The apartment was very clean and quiet with a super comfortable king bed made up of 2 singles. We were travelling the 2 weeks before arriving here but an email from Emily gave very clear instructions on gaining entry - staff are amazing!. Our lounge and kitchen were on the street level and the bedroom upstairs. Stairwell is narrow and may cause some travellers a problem. For the price it was perfect -a short walk to Salamanca Place and the historic Battery Point. Just 2 small issues (1) Could get the washing machine to work but the dryer did not appear to dry well at all. Ended up drying clothes over furniture. (2) We had some wet days and the patio that faced the road did not have an awning over it so you could not sit outside. Rooms 101-105 face Hampden Rd while 106-112 face the back of the block towards the harbour. They appear to have the lounge/kitchen on same level as 105 but bedrooms are downstairs. This allows a small balcony off the bedroom & one off the lounge as well. We would definitely stay here again but would take the back units for the balconies & a little more privacy and there may even be a small view from these apartments.

Room Tip: Rooms 106-112 have balconies and more privacy

Great 2 level apartment with large bedroom, good sized bathroom and comfortable loungeroom with courtyard area outside (facing a very quiet street front). 5 minute walk down to the water with lovely cafes with great breakfast menus close by. I would stay there again, without hesitation.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and it had everything we needed, was super quiet didn't hear any neighbors and windows were double glazed. Great location close to everything and convient basement carpark. Only thing was the rangehood didn't do much for extracting smells from the kitchen and our dishwasher didn't wash things at all. But it was otherwise clean and well equipped. Would stay here again.

Two couples, two rooms, booked two nights, extended for a third. Close to Salamanca, waterfront, Hobart CBS. Great secure undercover, off street parking included . Parked the motorbikes and went walking! Great for a base for short trips. Apartment very comfortable, everything you need, comfortable beds, spacious. Only downside was the washer/dryer was difficult to use .. Cleaner got the washer working for us .. We coldnt work out the dryer but this wasn't a huge problem and definitely wouldn't deter us from coming back. Highly recommended. Oh, and we thought the rate was very reasonable for the location.

Room Tip: Courtyards a open to the street so if you want privacy choose the rear apartments

We booked in for two nights after finding this place on the internet, and thought that the location would be good, which it was. It is only minutes to Salamanca Place and within walking distance to some of the great restaurants and eateries in the Hobart waterfront district. An added bonus is the secure off-street parling, which is very handy, particularly around Battery Point, where parking is scarce. Whilst I never had any face to face contact with any of the staff or management, the communications I did have via phone and email were excellent, and they couldn't have been more helpful.

Upon arrival, we found that the units were two storey, with the living and kitchen areas upstairs and the bedroom and bathroom down a very narrow angled staircase, which presented a problem for me due to back and knee problems, especially when carrying luggage. I couldn't find mention of the two storey design on their website, so I think this needs to be addressed. The unit was well-equipped with a reasonable view of the waterfront and the large cruise ship which was there at the time.

We did however, have a few issues, firstly, the shower hose leading to the hand-held shower head was broken and leaking profusely, causing a lack in water pressure to the shower head which rendered it virtually useless. I acknowledge that this is not something that would be checked unless management were told about it, and they assured me that it would be repaired once a replacement hose was obtained. The shower also has a large shower rose overhead, so it was still possible of course to enjoy a nice hot shower.

The biggest issue we had was the lack of cleanliness in the unit. Downstairs, virtually every horizontal surface had a layer of dust, the carpet was in need of a thorough vacuum, the TV remote in the bedroom was filthy, and there were other small issues that were generally disappointing. One of the A/C units was damaged and rattled, and both were very dirty with cobwebs above them. The upstairs unit had clumps of dust hanging off the filter vents, and both were musty when operating. I rang and asked for them to be cleaned, ands when we returned, we found that they were apparently given a cursory wipe-over, with the cobwebs and dust still visible, only the large clumps were gone. As I said, this was very disappointing, but I have since been assured that these items will be addressed. It is a sad footnote nowadays that I cannot remember when we have stayed somewhere and there have NOT been cleaning issues. A sign of the times, I guess.

I would recommend Hampden at Battery Point Apartments for the location, friendly and helpful management, and general facilities, just ensure that your room has been properly cleaned.

Photos attached.

Room Tip: Upstairs give a better view, stairs can be a problem.

Dear Kaywol,

Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions of Hampden at Battery Point Apartments following your recent stay with us in late January. It's great that you found our location ideal and well equipped with secure parking. Our self contained apartments don't have a reception, however we are just a phone call away with staff on site during the day. We are actually based at another of our properties just 300m away, so we are always able to come and assist if required.

Thank you for your comments regarding the level of cleanliness in the apartment. I was really surprised and disappointed to read this, and would like to assure you that it is certainly not to our usual standards. For this there is no excuse, and I do sincerely apologise and this is something we have addressed as a priority. We do really value all feedback from our guests, as it is such an important way to ensure we are providing the best possible products and services.

Thank you again for your review, and we do hope to welcome you back to Hampden at Battery Point again.

Kind regards,

Kat and the Red Awnings Team

Just spent a night here and it was fantastic...............when we come back to Hobart we will come back here as the location is fantastic.
We stayed in room 105.
No need for a car unless you want to do some long distance trips, but it has secure parking included which is a bonus as most of the major hotels charge a fee.
Well equipped kitchen and clean room didnt need to use the washing machine but it has one.
Very close to some of the top cafes and resturants in the area
Loved it!
