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 base for our 2 night Hobart stay. A little out of the city centre and up quite a steep hill, I'm not sure it's location would suit those without a car, but if you have one it's an ideal spot. The whole property looked well maintained including the pool and games room (although we didn't have time to use either). Our 3 bedroom villa (no. 12) had a fantastic view out over the city and river and easy parking in front. It was very spacious, clean, modern and comfortable with two bathrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs) and a compact but perfectly adequate kitchen. I would have given five stars but we were there during a heat wave and although the air conditioning worked really well downstairs, there is none upstairs and it was very hot by the end of the day making it difficult to sleep. Unfortunately there are no flyscreens on the windows either, so we didn't feel comfortable opening them. Aside from this though a great spot for spacious self contained accommodation.

Great 2 bedroom unit that we used as our base for 5 nights exploring the bottom half of Tassie. Living area isn’t huge and the kitchen is small, however it’s all very functional and works well. Bedrooms and bathroom facilities upstairs with comfy beds and bathrooms are great - fantastic shower pressure. Laundry facilities are good with 5 washing machines and dryers, and you can grab extra coffee, sugar, towels from here also anytime. Didn’t use the pool but it looks great. Parking is easy with parks straight outside your unit doors. Overall, great place to stay, but quite hilly if are wanted to walk into the city.

Great unit, even though we didn't have any sea/city view. Spacious 2 level unit, AC downstairs, the AC struggled to get the rooms upstairs cool, so we had to sleep with window open. It's no fly screen, which was a bit of a miss. But we didn't notice any major issues with bugs etc. It may be a good idea to provide guests with a fan, I noticed it was a heater but not a fan. Unit was very clean and close to everything. Fantastic clean small swimming pool we used everyday. Beds mixed quality, some firmer than others. Overall I think it was very valuable for a family of 4!

This place is not in the CBD, but the view across the city, the bridge, the Derwent River, Storm Bay, and across to Bellerive makes it all worthwhile. We stayed here for four nights and used it as a base to recover from our walk in Tassie’s national parks, and to explore Hobart. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are excellent. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly, and a good source of local advice and info. The common room / games room and the pool are clean and looked after, and we used them all while we were there. Laundry facilities are very good. Parking is all onsite and plentiful. We usually walked down and up the hill for meals and exploring Hobart. If we got tired of walking back up, the Uber / Taxi was reasonable. Recommended. Cate

Stayed here before whilst in Hobart so decided to come back. Very friendly and helpful lady on reception. Spacious rooms which were comfortable and very quiet. Close proximity to Hobart CBD in a quiet neighbourhood. Every thing one could need from WiFi to Foxtel. Huge bathroom and a games room for all to use with a pool table and table tennis table. Only thing that made me rate it 4 out of 5 was the website said includes an oven and our room didn't have one which was a bit of a shame

It is a pity that this issue is what drove me to write this review because the room is good, we have no issues other than the wifi issue. We had just checked in for 6 days yesterday and we noticed the network providing wifi does not reach our villa. When I asked about how we get wifi I was told to try connecting outside, which by the way also did not help. I was then told, it works in reception, which was no problem for me either, and because I suspect the hardware is in the main building where reception is. All I got was a sorry, and that no one ever had issues with wifi in the same Villa. Our Villa is one of the furtherest ones from the main building. Don’t expect wifi when you get here, because you may be disappointed. There is obviously an issue with the wifi but there is no level of awareness or acknowledgement of the problem. When I asked for another room that did get the wifi signal I was told they are fully booked, so money is clearly coming in but think twice before booking here if wifi is something that is important to you.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children had a fantastic weekend stay here in a 2 bedroom apartment. They are located at the front of the property and have a great view of the bay. The area is very hilly so you can’t really walk into the city but it was a great base for us as we had a car. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom nice and clean. Would definitely recommend.

I am happy to recommend these units. This is the third time we have stayed here. We were two couples and we stayed in a spacious two bedroom unit, each bedroom with their own bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a courtyard with a BBQ. The view out over Hobart towards the harbour makes this a special place. Easy parking and considerate staff.

The view is spectacular, convenient location out from the busy city streets that has no parking. The apartment is very clean and well equiped with what travellers need. Facilities include heated and clean pool, game room while waiting for the laundry to finish….6 min walk to the convenience store. Lovely staff and available supplies in the laundry. I have recommended to my friends…Tip! There is a walking trail at the end of the street about 5 walk from the villas.
