We stayed here for a few days. The reception was great and the staff were very helpful when we wanted to change the booking. Great room, very comfortable and reasonably appointed. Food was very good. Overall we felt very welcome for a few days in a very convenient spot.

Grand old hotel in a nice area of Hobart, plenty of of street parking, great place for lunch and or dinner. The food is five star and the staff can't do enough for you, it has nice atmosphere and in winter they have a fire burning to make cosy and warm.

My hubby and I come here every 6-12 months for a special date night without our children. We always order the herb and garlic bread and a scotch and porterhouse medium rare with the reef and beef curry sauce. Normally the steaks are cooked perfect and the sauce is a beautiful creamy curry sauce with fresh prawns and scallops. Tonight... More

This restaurant was an all round awesome experience! From the server and bar staff being super friendly and accommodating to the chef creating a complementing concoction of flavours into the perfect meal! I highly recommend that anyone who visits Hobart eats at Shippy's!

I'd booked dinner for 7:00 at Shippies in Battery Point, an old haunt of mine from way back, on a Thursday thinking that would be less busy than a Friday or Saturday. Wrong! The place was packed. Anyway, a lovely Canadian waitress called Ashley seated us and looked after us with drinks (beer and a fantastic red wine) and we... More

However, the rooms are terrible overpriced and it's sometimes challenging that the reception is closed if you arrive late or leave before 11 (or... More

This is the first time that I have been in Battery Point, a location where time virtually stands still. The service was friendly and the staff obliging. The meal was quite filling. The "Shippies" as it also nicknamed is quite a large hotel with a few bars. However it could do a bit of lightening up this place as it... More
