There are two types of accommodation at this property. The one room apartments in thenew building are probably excellent and would have fantastic views of the harbour and city. However the older two bedroom apartments are dreadful. Very limited or non existent views. The apartments was extremely dated and very depressing , the furniture should have been put in the... More

Stayed here with my colleague in a 2 Bedroom Apartment overlooking Hobart. Most beautiful views from the top. Facilities were okay, the apartment smelt a little, got lost trying the find the place (most have been those old car hire GPS') all in all, was a ok stay. Great pizza shop near by. Sorry forgot the name.

There were 5 of us staying in the villa. During our stay, there were wallabies passing by the front yard at night when we were sitting at the patio for stargazing. We paid extra for the villa that came with a harbour view as advertised. Honestly, the harbour view was rather far from the place we stayed. I find it... More

I have to say the reason we booked this accomodation was for the views that they advertised. But we were located in the far back corner and the only view we had was a 50ft cliff. I found this accomodation one of the dearest i stayed in was completely dissapointed.

The view from our room was SPECTACULAR, which was room 34. Even though the pictures you see on their web sight are beautiful, they have nothing on the real thing! Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you don't have a car though it can be a steep climb back up the hill but then again that's the price you... More

Every advert we saw for this property, named Bay View Villas, referred to bay views or city views. We booked this property on the internet and it was the second most expensive booking on our 7 days in Tasmania. We arrived only to find that we had a view of a parking lot backed by a stone wall. Half the... More

Stayed for one night believing that we would have a balcony with views of the harbour; however upon check in was told that we had booked a "standard apartment" which have no views or balcony. Despite showing them the confirmation email stating "2 bedroom - harbour views", they insisted that we had not booked the right room. Unfortunately no balcony... More

My fiancé and I had a three night stay in February. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment with a balcony on the third floor (has a lift) overlooking spectacular views of Hobart. It's a 5 -10 minute drive from the CBD and a great walk if you enjoy a workout with steep inclines on the return trip! The apartment... More

after reading great reviews, we decided to book not one but two nights at Bay View. Thank goodness it was only for somewhere to sleep. Our two bedroom unit was dark, dingy and old, had a musty odour and was very depressing. The down lights were hanging out of the ceiling, as was the light above the staircase. The room... More
