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

Three families stayed here over the Easter break. Great location. All rooms were very homely, comfy and clean. Betty is a great manager, always kept in touch and was very welcoming to all our needs. Short walks to great eateries, Da Angelo and The Shipwrights Arms. But important to book these as they are very popular. This is our second... More

We stayed one night at The Grand Old Duke in Feb, 2012. We're a 29 year old couple with no kids. It is a 5min walk to Salamanca Markets (definitely worth a visit), and is only metres away from great restaurants and cafes (tip: we were unable to get into the nearby restaurants without a reservation... however... we were able...

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the downstairs apartments. The location was great - I always love to stay around Battery Point as it is walking distance to many places but also has local charm. The apartment was fine with everthing we needed. There is only one space for offstreet parking which is right outside our apartment's door... More

Beautiful accommodation in Battery Point. Good sized rooms, spotlessly clean, quiet location and within walking distance of everything Battery Point and Salamanca has to offer. Betty, the manager, is so friendly and helpful, the place is lucky to have her! Upstairs is fantastic for 4 people with 2 single beds and a queen bed. We had the chance to stay... More
