What a shame. This place could be really good, but it just wasn't.
The apartments have a great location in a lovely looking building. The rooms are quite stylish and spacious, and the bathrooms are also pretty cool. The downside is in the practical side of things. Having just stayed in one of the top floor rooms through a period when Hobart was warm (mid 20s) it was impossible to get any sleep. The room got FAR too hot, and the piddly portable fan provided just couldn't move enough air around the room. If you open the window to get the cool Hobart evening air, you also get noise from the pubs just down the road. On one night of the stay this went on till 3am. Surely this heat issue is easy to fix? A/C? Ceiling fan? Low energy lighting in the stairwell?
Also, the windows were filthy, as was the floor, and the room was full of cobwebs. Quite disappointing for the money. I wish I'd paid attention to the reviews on here. I'll not be visiting the Quarry again.
