We stayed for 2 wonderful days at the Grand Old Duke. The photos didn't do it justice. The apartment is beautiful, period features but still warm inviting and family friendly. Betty was so accommodating and lovely, we can't wait to come back.

One word...perfect. This heritage listed building right in the heart of Battery Point is a reflection of a bygone era and you really do feel like you are living the dream. The location of this grand old beauty backing on to the historical Arthur Circus means you can walk anywhere and not even start the car. We have stayed with... More

I can give 3 compelling reasons to stay at the Grand Old Duke: (1) Great location, (2) Great service from Betty, and (3) Great heritage building. Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights at the upstairs unit and loved it. From the minute you stepped in the door it felt just like walking into a fully-equipped and fully-functioning home. All... More

We were back in Hobart on business but had the family with us this time so needed a central location within easy walking distance to restaurants and playgrounds. The two bedroom apartment was perfect for the 4 of us. Well located and well appointed in the heart of Battery Point and a very short stroll to Salamanca. Definitely will go... More

By this do I mean the Grand Old Duke apartments or Betty (the Boss!) Actually it covers both. We stayed 9 nights in the upper level "home away from home". It had everything we needed for a longer stay. Location;location. It is close to everything yet it's quiet, A perfect base for restaurants, all busy, and to walk to the... More

My 2 travel companions and I were thrilled with Apartment One at the Grand Old Duke. The rooms are beautifully furnished with period furniture and has a lovely atmosphere. The kitchen and the bathroom were clean and pleasant. Situated in Battery Point, it was lovely to stroll around the area admiring the buildings and the views. We ate at the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in May 2013 - one night in the one bedroom with an extra bed put in, and then two nights in the upstairs grand 2 bedroom apartment. This apartment is really like a small house with a big kitchen and bedrooms with a queen and two single beds. Betty was very helpful right from the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. As a family with 2 kids, Betty connected the two downstairs apartments and added an extra single bed so the kids didn't need to share a bed. All clean, well looked after, lovely period furniture, central heating. Only down side is that there was no table big enough for the 4 of us to sit... More

We stayed 5 nights in early April in the upstairs apartment & enjoyed it immensley. Location is one of the best points about The Duke. The neighbourhood has some superb houses. A 5 minute walk to Salamanca. Great restaurants & cafes all around. I would like to give 5 stars, however the creaking floorboards & squeeky bed don't allow me.... More
