Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great location in Sandy Bay with free parking at the door. Our room clean and the kitchenet well equipped with toaster and microwave. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom unit. The 2 bedrooms were upstairs. Staff were helpful and friendly. We bought the $5 breakfast packs.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights.The location is great, being walking distance from the city centre.The room was roomy enough for us with a comfortable lounge. I think the bathroom could lose the bath.

Ideally located for wharf and markets. Easy to access. Apartment facilities are very good and we had a new bathroom with walk in shower. Bed very comfortable. We had a downstairs apartment and could hear the people moving around upstairs but too annoying. On main road but couldn't hear traffic.

Room Tip: Would ask for a room towards to the back. If you don't like stairs get downstairs apartment.

I stayed here in 2019 and was happy to return for 5 nights. Very convenient location, although I did have a hire car, but was able to walk to Salamanca Markets and to Battery Point. Close to bus stop if needed. Clean, good facilities. It's on a main road, but that wasn't noticeable despite my apartment being close. Just a bit out of the city centre. Unfortunately my holiday club could only get a 2 bedroom apartment (only needed a studio) for my dates - which meant that the 2 bedrooms were upstairs with bathroom downstairs...... I managed. Nice to have oil heaters in the bedrooms. Laundry is to be updated - still have to use coins for washing machines but planning for credit card pay system - was offered a clothes dryer for use rather than a clothes dryer machine - appreciated. Staff were helpful and friendly.

We stayed here twice: before and after we hiked the Three Capes Track. We loved the location - close enough to walk into town, and also close to restaurants and cafe's in Sandy Bay. The apartments were clean, functional and accommodating for a family. I would stay here again, and I think they are good for the price you pay.

This is a basic hotel but it provided everything we needed. The steep narrow staircase was interesting, especially for lumping up your suitcases. The staircase also doesnt give you much room separating rooms so not enough room for anyone else that wants to get to the other room if you are accessing yours. This is a great location,  which was close to the the Hobart CBD (about 25 min walk) but far enough to be quiet.  We had a hire car and this suited us for parking. The rooms are ok but they are quite small.  The bed was only a double with a very used  spongy mattress.  This was probably the worst thing about the accomodation as you tended to roll to the middle. It works be of your starting by yourself but not if you are a couple. Apart from this,  it was great accommodation and we enjoyed our stay.

The Bay Apartments are a good value but simple place to stay in Hobart. We stayed here for 1 night this week, in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was clean but small. It had an overpowering smell of cleaning products when we arrived but this dispersed during our stay. The bathroom is a traditional shower-over-bath, and there is a small living area and flat screen TV. There is a small cooktop and sink, and a bar fridge. The apartments are a short walk to a large range of restaurants, a Woolworths and a Cole. There is also a pub (almost) next door. It is a short drive to Hobart CBD and there are public buses out the front. We were apprehensive at first as it was quite noisy (noise from other guests and from the road), but this didn’t affect our sleep quality. There is parking outside the unit and one reverse cycle aircon unit in the living area. Don’t expect a fancy property- this is a basic but well presented unit at an affordable price point, not a $300/nt property. If you set your expectations correctly this is a very good property. The stairways to the upstairs appartments are very narrow and it is difficult to carry large cases up and down. I’d stay here again if looking for a basic stay in Hobart, but probably not for multiple nights.

Have stayed here several times visiting Hobart. We stayed overnight in room 5 in March 2023. Very clean, comfortable and spacious. Everything you need and parking at the door. Walk in to Hobart for restaurants, markets etc. On a busy street but traffic noise wasn't a problem. Comfy bed and hot shower. A little bit on the expensive side but good location and amenities.

The Bay Hotel Apartments is a reasonably large complex and appears to provide visitors with a colonial Hobart Town look. Reception on arrival was formal with instructions given regarding parking room service and room location. The apartment is very spacious and of an open plan type, reminiscent of a studio style of accommodation. The lounge area consists of a comfortable sofa as well as a dining table and chairs. Also contained in the same area is a small kitchenette, well provisioned with kitchenware. While still very much a part of the same open plan style, the bedroom space is identifiable by a wonderful luggage table that provides access to one’s luggage at a far greater height than the usual luggage support furniture. The bedroom area contains a large comfortable bed and great sidelights. The bathroom is of a good size and contains an exceptionally powerful shower over the bath. Care does need to be taken to ensure the curtain remains within the bath while showering and that the bathmat hanging over the bath is removed to avoid saturation experiences. Excellent Guest Compendium. Well located, being in the Sandy Bay shopping area and close to Battery Point and Central Hobart. Excellent Wi-Fi provided.
