I booked at Shipwright's Arms as it looked nice, cosy and historic, I love Battery Point, it was perfectly located there and I wanted to cap my nightly rate at $75 per night. I was met by friendly and attentive staff and surprisingly it felt like my uni college in Melbourne both aesthetically and socially, which was a nice vibe. Shippies has the heart and soul of Hobart running through it and for that I like it, and it's a great pub and a nice place. The housekeeper was friendly and animated a character and very personable owner Aaron kindly stored my bag for me for a few hours after checkout. Thanks!
