Very pleasant stay, accommodation was rather spacey, we had 2 storeys for 5 people! The kitchen was well equipped with kettle, utensils, microwave and a fridge, cooking dinner was almost very convenient and we could store perishable items. Washroom was huge and well ventilated and floor was dry by the morning. Closets are available in both rooms as well and free wifi available. Woolworths is just a short drive away, good for groups that intend to cook your own dinner. Open the balcony doors to a scenic view of the sea, houses and sunset. :)

My wife and I stayed here in July 2014. If you are staying in Hobart without a car, this is probably not the best option, as it is a short drive into the city. If you have a car, the free parking you get here makes it a good option as we were quoted around $15 a day for parking at hotels in the city.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment with harbour view. The view is amazing, especially at night. It was very relaxing just sitting on the couch overlooking the city while we ate meals or just lounged around watching TV.

If you're looking to stay in and relax for a bit, they had a good selection of DVDs to rent for only $2 a night. The TV was also a decent size and had the DVD player(Nice not to be charged extra for these things).

If you're looking to do more outdoors things, its still only a 5-10 minute drive down into the Hobart city, of if you want to drive up to Mt Wellington its roughly 30 minutes from here. We discovered just at the end of the road the villas are located on that there is a walking track up into the bush behind Hobart, so if you feel like doing a short quick hike it's worth checking out.

Overall: Highly recommend this place. It's clean, quiet, and a great location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a harbor view apartment if possible. The view is amazing during the day, but especially at nigh...

Myself and my husband stayed at Bay view in June 2014. I had selected bay view over another hotel option for the facilities they had. And I was not disappointed.

The reception is not 24 hours but they have good provision for after hours key pick up and drop off. Also, the security is very good.
The apartments is not centrally located in the town center, however, if visiting Hobart a car would be recommended. Having said this, you can drive to town center within 10 -15 minutes from this location. Hobart generally is a hilly area so driving can sometimes be tricky if not used to such roads.

We had a 1 bedroom apartment, and this was very spacious. They provide free wifi and free basement parking. The kitchen was well equipped for up to four people and also has amenities such as dishwasher, fridge, electric stove top and Kettle. There is a Woolworths and wine shop close by (not walking distance) to buy your basic supplies if you intend to cook.

Since this is not a serviced apartment, full cleaning is only done once in 5 days. Only towel and garbage is serviced on a daily basis. So we had to make our bed and do the cleaning. The drawback is the shower that easily floods the bathroom making it very difficult to step in after taking a shower. We had to request cleaning supplies to clean the bathroom. Also the laundry facilities is not in the room and is a paid service on the ground floor. These were the only inconvenience we faced.

The view from this Villa is so fantastic that you would only want to be seated in the living room...

Room Tip: Book room with lake view

This is a pleasant place to stay in a quiet area. It has wifi and comfortable beds, the cleanliness was great. Big bathroom, but small on space in lounge area of apartment.
There are fantastic views of hobart and all the lights. You will need a car to get around from here.
One of the sofas in the sitting room was so hard it was uncomfortable.

We were a family of 3 travelling with another 2 families. Our friends booked their rooms first otherwise there was no way we would have booked this place after our experience with the horrible lady on the phone ( I won't mention her name but I'm sure management knows who she is). We wanted to book a 1 bedroom apartment and didn't need any extra bedding as our daughter would sleep with us. When you book online via their website it has a $30 extra charge for a child, which is outrageous, so we called them directly. We asked the lady what the charge was for and she said, we would need to set up a bed, sheets etc and when we said we don't need any of that, she backtracked and said, it's extra for a bed, the $30 is for a towel & the water she will use!! Are you serious???? We were not happy, so asked to speak to her manager to which she replied " our manager is away for a very long time so you can't." We were so upset but had no choice but to book as our friends had already booked and paid. When we arrived we weren't expecting very much. The young girl who greeted us was so nice, friendly & helpful, nothing like the one on the phone. Our room was really nice, clean, new & the view was pretty amazing. There were no extra towels for my daughter, which we paid $30 for!!!! The pool and games room was nice but closed at 6.30pm, should have been open longer, especially the games room. On checkout, we went to reception and said, we are checking out & the lady behind the desk just grabbed the keys and walked into her little office without saying a word. Didn't ask, did you have a nice stay etc...... It was then we realised it was the same cranky lady we spoke to on the phone. Would we stay here again??? Only if the cranky lady is gone and if they change their policy for charging so much extra for 1 child to sleep in existing bedding. BUT AT THIS STAGE WE FEEL SO RIPPED OFF, we wouldn't come back and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Only stay in the one bedroom sea view, our friends had the two bedroom and they were small & cra...

I stayed at Bay View a Villas in a one bedroom apartment on a business trip. I was so impressed with the stunning view from my room and the cleanliness. The facility's were fantastic, only thing that would have made it perfect would be a small gym. The location wasn't too far from the city, would highly recommend

Good price (Hobart is expensive for Hotels) alternative for anyone travelling with 3+ people. Bay view 2br apartments not really worth the extra $, as you can simply walk 50ft to see the view from the rest of the complex anyway. Beds comfy, kitchen and dining facilities small but adequate.
Lounge chairs need to be de-loused and cleaned. Imagine a couch surface that feels like you are sitting on the carpet of a pub...sticky and slimy.
Otherwise, its functional, cheap accommodation.
