“Exceptional in every way, a great stay”

The Bishop's quarters is a fantastic place to stay. We had 3 nights here and our experience was exceptional. The owner of the property was extremely helpful and friendly and has paid attention to every detail in setting up this lovely property. The quality was first class, with beautiful thick towels and bed quilts, extra blankets, ipad and sonos system.
Situated close to the city, the property overlooks Battery Point with stunning views.
We were very pleased that we chose to stay here.

These are the upper floor rooms of a wonderful and historic mansion in a quiet and leafy Hobart neighborhood. The apartment has modern renovations throughout including two stunning bathrooms. The dining area has views of the bay.

“What a sublime spot!”

Absolutely wonderful apartment to stay in while visiting Hobart. Spacious 2 bedroom apartment with all mod cons. Proprietors are lovely and accommodating. Privacy and quiet almost in the heart of Hobart with 20 minute walk to restaurants in Battery Point and Salamanca. You would not get anything better than this. It was such a nice place to come home to after a day at MONA or Port Arthur.

This was an absolutely beautiful, heritage property. The spacious apartment was perfect for our family of three. There was great attention to detail from the toiletries to the plunger coffee. There was a lovely view of the bay from our upstairs windows which was a perfect way to start the day. Everything you could want was available in the electronic department from the television to the music system. The decor was very tonal with just the right touches for comfort and live ability.

Highly recommend it for anyone visiting Hobart!
The attention to detail is wonderful; heated towel rails and floors, music system, fruit from the garden and great recommendations for eating. And if you eat in there's a dishwasher!
We had a view of the sunset over the water each evening and could easily walk to the shops, restaurants and Salamanca Markets. You won't want to stay anywhere else in Hobart after you've stayed here!
