“Exceptional place to stay in Hobart.”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We booked the Avalon City Retreat penthouse as a special treat for our daughter's 40th birthday celebration. Right from the first booking, the service and communication was excellent.
The penthouse is wonderfully designed, with 2 luxury king bedrooms (each with well appointed bathroom). The views from every window are unique - looking out over Hobart waterfront, city and Mount Wellington. The living area is spacious and beautifully appointed with everything needed to host a party or dinner celebration. Management left some lovely surprise treats and went over and above in quality of breakfast provisions etc.
The BBQ/deck area is spacious, and has plenty of room for guests, and the balcony overlooking St. David's Park provides beautiful views of the Derwent River, Battery Point and beyond.
The decor is really great, with some fascinating artefacts which perfectly complement the modern furnishings. The beds are something akin to sleeping on a cloud, and the choice of pillows is amazing.
There is secure parking for two cars.
I could go on and on, but suggest that readers find out for themselves - they will not be disappointed.

Thank you SO much for the perfect venue, which resulted in a memory we and our daughter, family and friends will never forget.

Dear Margaret, thank you so much for taking the time to write such wonderful words about your experience with us at Avalon City Retreat. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you, your family and of course the wonderful birthday girl! One of the best things about my role with Avalon Retreats is being able 'reveal' Avalon City Retreat as a surprise on special occasions! What a treat is was seeing your daughters face when she reached the top of the stairs! I'm so pleased that your family enjoyed the experience and that you have made such fond memories at Avalon City Retreat and I do hope to welcome you all back again one day. Warm wishes -Amanda

Everything promised on the website - and more. Every detail has been carefully thought through. We loved the well-equipped kitchen, the super-comfortable bed, the lovely huon pine table, the artwork; and the views are to die for. There are plenty of quirky features (the bath, the moon chair!) that really make it a fun place to stay.

Unrivaled service from Peter in the booking office(via phone) and Amanda the welcoming host. The location, fixtures, fittings, generous complimentary extras - everything was exceptionally well thought out and appreciated by the lucky four of us. Without giving too much away... the cloud like bed with jersey sheets and the fabulous surprise for after dinner were personal highlights. Thank-you Brett for your vision to construct the Pod and for sharing it with us!

“Staying on Top of the Town - Hobart”

What an amazing experience to stay in the Omni Pod which has to be the coolest place in Hobart to stay. From the minute we walked in we knew we were staying in the perfect space for us. The views over the harbour and up to Mt Wellington were spectacular!! However it was the comfort and thought of the hosts that made the place such a memorable experience. from the basket of fresh goodies to the super comfy beds the retreat was a great get away from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne!! Of course there was the ultra special and unique outdoor bath, what a hoot! Can't wait to come back

Dear Feuta2, Thanks so much for your kind words about Avalon City Retreat, it was such a pleasure to introduce you to the space. The City Retreat certainly does seem to have a knack for encouraging our guests to unwind and move at a slower pace during their Hobart holidays! We love making sure every detail is perfect and are so pleased you enjoyed the complimentary provisions, outdoor bath and famous Avalon City Retreat beds! I very much look forward to welcoming you both again next time you visit us in sunny Hobart! Best wishes

“A perspective of Hobart I've never seen before”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I loved my stay at Avalon City Retreat. The penthouse apartment is beautiful and it was an amazing feeling to be right in the middle of the city yet secluded from the hustle and bustle. Every detail had been taken care of for us - there was nothing we needed that wasn't there. The views are amazing - almost 360 degree. And the bed really was the most comfortable bed I have slept in - ever! I would highly recommend Avalon to anyone looking for somewhere a bit different to stay while they explore Hobart. I've lived in Hobart all my life but this was seeing Hobart a way I never have before.

Thank you for your lovely words about your stay at Avalon City Retreat! It's so great to hear that The City Retreat was able to offer you a new perspective of Hobart even though you're a born and bred Hobartian! We're so pleased that you love our custom made beds too, we put in a lot of thought and 'bed testing' hours to come up with the final result and it's music to our ears to hear that they really are the best beds you've ever slept in! It's lovely too when people notice our attention to detail because it's as important to us as it is to you, thank you. We hope you come to visit us and our 'Avalon' beds again very soon! Best wishes -P
