“Excellent location and great accommodation”
Reviewed 20 June 2011

We loved the Grand Old Duke and will stay here again. The location is fantastic with Salamanca only a couple of minutes walk away. We have two small children and they loved the acccommodation and the pirate ship park at the end of the road. We stayed in the upstairs apartment which was extremely spacious and well equipped. We didn't cook anything in the kitchen as there are great restaurants close by, but it seemed to have everything you would need. The only thing that could be a disadvantage to some guests is that you have to walk through one bedroom to get to the master bedroom. Overall, highly recommended.

Very large apartment, very comfortable, lovely antique furnishings. Shared laundry outside. Free parking onsite or with pass on the street. Pleasant downhill walk to Salamanca Place (with free Internet cafes; no Internet in apt.)

My sister and I stayed in apartment 2 at the Grand Old Duke. It was spotlessly clean, the proprietors were extremely helpful and friendly, it was private and in a brilliant location. The apartment is old-style (but not dowdy) and full of character. And the beds were very comfy. Highly recommend.

Reviewed 5 September 2010

Our family of 4 had two connected suites taking up the entire main floor. It was so large and rambling that one could easily get lost inside. We had 2 sitting rooms, 2 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms and a connecting hallway. The decor is beautifully done, with thick, velvety window treatments (which was nice because they fronted directly onto the sidewalks, so kept the noise down, and views from passerbys down to a minimum). The beds had wonderful canopies, the sitting rooms had nice, comfy armchairs.

The TV was very small, and the dining table barely fit two -- not ideal for a family of 4, or two couples trying to dine together. Laundry was accessed from outside and shared with all the other suites. There is parking onsite for one small car, otherwise street parking is available (watch for the really high curbs).

No internet.

The location was excellent, in an area filled with nice, old Victorian homes. Lots of little restaurants close by, and an easy walk to downtown. This would be a great place to stay for an extended time. Noise is pretty minimal, and some noise from the people upstairs, but not intrusive.

Overall, a great place to stay, with comfortable beds, and cozy furnishings.

We stayed in apartment one which is a 2 bedroom self catering apartment with very large well furnished lounge, good well equipped kitchen and a bathroom. The bedrooms were one double bedded room and one twin bedded room and access to the bathroom from the double bedroom was through the twin room which might be a problem to some guests. The location was very good for visiting Hobart and there were several coffee and breakfast cafes in the area and Salamanca Market with even more restaurants, shops and cafes was nearby.
