We stayed at Avalon to celebrate a close friend's hens night. The stay was nothing short of spectacular, every fine detail had been considered. Thanks for an amazing experience!
This is an absolutely unique and gorgeous apartment on the roof of an office building. See through glass with a zen feel to it, and gorgeous views of Hobart Bay. It has a deck facing the bay and a deck in the back with a picnic table and Japanese bath. The location is very central and getting into the building was easy.
The issues were that I like to take baths but the bathtub leaked and couldn't be filled. They knew this but didn't let us know. Also, one of the heaters didn't work and it's cold in Hobart at night. Finally, I had to contact them about check in rather than vice versa.
What an unforgettable experience it was to stay at Avalon City Retreat in Hobart. The photos simply don't do it justice. It's even more amazing in real life. Thankfully we were able to arrive during daylight hours on a gorgeous, sunny day. We were gob smacked, the vista was simply stunning. What an incredible place. Perched up on top of a city building in a glass omnipod. We had everything we could possibly need. Wonderful breakfast supplies, a bottle of champagne, supplies of organic loose leaf tea, fresh fruit, fully stocked mini bar.....there was no way we were going to leave the place in search of dinner. We rang the Astor Grill across the road and ordered from their Sumptuous menu and they delivered. We thoroughly recommend Avalon.
I booked Avalon City Retreat over a year ago, knowing it would be the perfect escape pod for my fiftieth birthday - and it was! Although I live locally, I'm a little out of town and was keen for someplace where it was easy to catch up with friends, celebrate, luxuriate and feel that fifty is fabulous after all. Avalon City was wonderful in every respect - beautiful, but perfectly simple and bathed in sunshine over a weekend of glorious weather. Thanks for amazing memories that will draw me back for more I'm sure!
This apartment is perched on top of building in the city. There are two outstanding bedrooms each with their own private on-suite.
It has the most incredible views.
The apartment has all the modern conveniences and a fully stocked kitchen. The host Amanda organised an early check in.
Highly recommended and great value for money particularly for two couples.
I can't wait to go back!
We booked here for our wedding and it was fantastic! The place is beautiful with lovely views, fully equipped for an event and the concierge, Amanda, is very friendly and helpful in both pre-viewing appointments and on-the-ground help. The bedrooms are well-designed and comfortable. Our guests were blown away by the space, light and convenience of the apartment and it made for a great venue. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a private but stylish location for that all important occasion.
Our three night stay here was simply wonderful.....from the view, to THE best beds in the world, fab fitout , yummy breakfast provisions, while watching the Derwent as we awaited our yacht to finish the Sydney to Hobart.
