Perfect location, excellent facilities
We spent a week over New Year at this property and can’t recommend it highly enough. Comfortable beds in both rooms, clothes washing facilities, excellent shower, fully equipped kitchen and lots of information provided on local attractions and restaurants. if we come back to wonderful Hobart again, this property will be at the top of our list.
Enjoyable stay, great location !
This apartment is in a great location, being a few minutes stroll into battery point via Sandy Bay Road or Kelly Street steps. Also, there are the Billy Goat Steps at the other end of the street, a neat shortcut taking you towards Sandy Bay shops. The apartment is quiet at night. We were able to sleep with the windows open and wake up to birdsong (coming from Sydney where one normally wakes to the music from people's endless parties, it made a wonderful change!). Plenty of towels are supplied and there is a washing machine and dryer. The kitchen is well-supplied with crockery, etc. for a short stay. Plenty of up-to-date information is provided about the restaurants/cafes of Battery Point and various attractions around Hobart.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such lovely comments about RED DOOR Lisa. We really appreciate it. We too love the morning birds and the quiet evenings. Hobart is such a beautiful place. Kind regards, Kathryn and Robin
Well located close to everything
Had a great weekend at Red Door Apartment in Battery Point. Fantastically located within easy walk to Hobart central, Salamanca markets, harbour and Sandy Point. Only think that could have been clearer is the size of the apartment is smaller than expected from photos, plus bedrooms on entry level and remaining living and bathroom down the spiral staircase. Took a while to get used to the staircase, not for people with mobility issues. Views front and back brilliant, was great to be able to sit on deck with a glass of wine each night and look at the casino as the sun set.
Thanks for your review Glenda. We appreciate the time it takes to write thoughtful comments such as yours. Yes, the apartment is what we fondly call 'New York style' - compact yet very functional. We are really pleased you liked the fantastic location and your relaxing time (and glass of wine) on the deck at sun set. Sounds like our kind of holiday. Kind regards, Kathryn and Robin
Very good proeety in nice location
Enjoyed my stay.nicely located. Great value for money.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome back anytime. Cheers Robin
very cute apartment in great location
nd loads of great places to eat. It was also nice and quiet at night, which we always appreciate. The steep internal spiral staircase was not an issue for my daughter and I, especially as the suitcases stay upstairs in the bedrooms (this is the entry level).
Convenience and a view
Intimate, cosy and clean property perfect for a brief stay in Hobart. Although tiny, it suited our small family group with its convenience to Salamanca and Sandy Bay. Lovely early morning walks in the sunshine and great local coffee suggestions. Beautiful view over the water to the casino, and of the city lights at night. A bit short on storage space, but no matter to us with little luggage. Would benefit from some more equipment in the kitchen (e.g. for the microwave) for those who actually want to eat in, but then with lots of quality local restaurants and cafes why would you?
Hi Ellen. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We too love the early morning walks to our favourite cafes in and around Battery Point. We don't often have people cooking in the kitchen, as they usual prefer to eat out at the myriad local restaurants near by, but thank you so much for the feedback about more equipment for the microwave. We will look into it. Kind regards, Robin and Kathryn
