The Shipwright's Arms Hotel was built in the early 1800's and I am not surprised at the reviews about the accommodation. What people go there mostly for is the old world ambience and the great meals in the bistro or beer garden. The walls are adorned with boating memorabilia which includes photos of Sydney to Hobart yacht race finishes and the world famous Bob Clifford designed wave piercing catamarans. Four of us visited for lunch and enjoyed evry moment of it.

- Shipwright's Arms Hotel was established in 1846. Situated in the heart of historic Battery Point, Shippies (as it is know by the locals)has unique collection of Tasmanian and maritime memorabilia. Browse around the bar for the maritime memories including a 7 metre photomural showing every Sydney to Hobart yacht race line honours winner. The English style bar (built by a shipwright) features Tasmanian timbers and the log fires keep it cosy during winter. In summer you can relax in the ambient beer garden. ... more less
