Reviewed 12 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We stayed at the Gardens Apartment for 4 nights in early autumn. The apartment is very well fitted -out. The owners have thought of everything! It is clean and most comfortable. The garden is a treat in itself - especially in autumn! Pam & Tom are gracious hosts too; we feel like we have made new friends!

“Compact comfort ideal for a solo traveller or couple”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

people found this review helpful

This is a very small but beautifully designed and equipped apartment in a great location about 10-12 minutes drive from the Hobart CBD. There is a bus stop almost at the door, so if you don't have a car, you can still get around easily. The owners created the apartment thinking about what they would like. They are well-travelled, so they were working off a good base and you will find quality European appliances - with instructions for use - for cooking and laundry. The apartment is quite independent of the owners' house, but you are invited to enjoy their garden, which I certainly did. Dining is at the bench on the high leather chair/stools. Two quality armchairs face the TV and there is a CD player and radio. The bathroom and separate toilet are also located downstairs, while upstairs in the bedroom with windows on three of the four sides and a ceiling fan high in the cathedral ceiling. This was certainly appreciated during my stay, as Hobart was experiencing warm weather and, even with all windows open upstairs and down, the apartment was very warm, even overnight. However, in cooler conditions, you would be very snug. The bedroom is otherwise comfortable with quality bedding. Hanging space is limited, but adequate for travellers, and there is limited space for luggage.

A smiling host, fresh flowers in the apartment and basic provisions greeted me on arrival and I was made to feel extremely welcome. I certainly hope to stay here again.

Hi Elaine,
Thanks for the great review. Yes, on the days you were here the weather was quite warm - uncharacteristically so in the evenings. It's difficult to provide for every weird weather variation here. We look forward to you staying with us again.

“Your Ideal Home Base when exploring Hobart & Southern Tasmania”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Tom & Pam go out of their way to make you welcome and for your stay to be enjoyable.
The apartment is clean comfortable and contains everything you are likely to require for an enjoyable stay. It is only a short drive to the centre of Hobart, or the Sandy Bay shopping centre.

“Self Contained Serenity”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Great location and only about 10 mins from the heart of Hobart, this apartment is lovely and great for couples looking to have a base from which to explore the surrounding area. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay and your hosts, Tom and Pam are very welcoming and only too happy to make sure you are comfortable. Highly recommended and would stay here again without any hesitation.

“A real gem”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Tom and Pam have the most fantastic place to stay. It is a real gem and so nice to find something that is exactly as the description on the site. Their attention to detail is fantastic and they couldn't have been more helpful. Tom took us to the shops when we arrived to save us getting a bus and we even got a glass of Tassie Port on our last night. If only more hotels were like this ! Through our emails we exchanged before our trip I thought it would be good - but it was better then everything I hoped for. If you are visiting Hobart this is the place to stay.

“Sweet Spot in Hobart”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Tom and Pam have done an outstanding job of making this apartment a comfortable and inviting place during our stay in Hobart. Well equipped and all the little things that make you feel special and well cared for during your time-flowers, chocolates, milk in the refrigerator. The kitchen had all the things we needed to prepare our own meals and its amazing what they packed into the space. While the location was outside the CBD the bus stop is a minute away and easy to get anywhere in the city. We will definitely be coming back when we return to Hobart.

“What's the catch?”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

What's the catch - that is what we thought when we first arrived at the Gardens Apartment...but there was no catch.
Our host Tom prides himself on giving you more than you expect, from fresh fruit & chocolates on arrival to the quality appointments throughout the apartment. He has provided far more than basic appliances & utensils needed for a pleasant stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights there and at the end I still couldn't find a thing I would have changed.The apartment is brand new, compact & comfortable with the bonus of a lovely garden to make use of. We thought "Yep"we have landed on our feet here. A definite must in Hobart. Well done.
