“Luxury Apartment, Spotless!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We had stayed in the IXL 2-bedrooms penthouse apartment for 2 nights. It's a really luxury apartment!

The apartment was HUGE with 2 stories, the upper stories is the dining room, living room, open kitchen with island, and balcony with dockland view, which is stunning in both night and daytime! (You can BBQ at the balcony as well)

The lower stories had 3 bedrooms actually! Room1: King Bed with shower bathroom and balcony, Room2: Queen Bed, Room3: Single Bed, and bathroom with big bathtub, and a laundry room.

The Kitchen is veryvery nice equipped!, comes with dishwasher, electonice stoves, microwave, oven, "one-press" coffee machine, which can make milk foam, and 2-doors refrigerator. And u can find everything, every cutlery u need for cooking!

The living rooms is quite big, but in compare the TV become not so big, lol, and it comes with a Logitech iPod dock speaker, which is a nice touch, but if it is a BOSE/B&W speaker, it will be more luxury for this apartment! Also Free Wifi is provided! Great connection all over the room!
All high tech light switch and drape switch are used in the apartment, u might need sometimes to figure it out how to use actually!

Bathroom is using L'Occitane amenities, which is really nice, and smell really good!
Kitchen has variety of Twinings tea bags to choose from! and salt papper cooking oil plastic wrap are all there, which is another nice touch!

The parking space is very secure, and lots of spaces!

One thing is just the reception is a bit difficult to find, since there are no clear sign on the main street, but after call to the apartment, we found it!

It's really a nice choice in the city, if i ever get back to Hobart, i'd definately stay here again!

We stayed at the IXL aparments that had great cooking and washing facilities and was also walking close to markets, restaurants and the docks. It was also very quiet, which was fantastic. We didn't have a view of the water but could see Mt Wellington and was able to time our visit there without it being shrouded in cloud/mist.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us in an IXL Executive apartment, we are glad to see that you enjoyed the apartment so much. The IXL apartments are very centrally located close to most activities in Hobart. For water views on your next visit book an IXL Penthouse and you will have uninterupted views across the harbour.

We travelled with another couple and stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. The location couldn't be better and the apartment was very comfortable and well fitted out. We had a little confusion with the complicated electronic system for the lights and heating but eventually worked it all out. We loved the Henry Jones Art Hotel Long Bar which was right next door - a little too convenient!

The IXL Executive apartments are very convenient to most of what Hobart has to offer. They are located behind the Henry Jones Art Hotel making the Long Bar and Henry's very close by!

We stayed here over a weekend and loved every minute of it!
The 3 bedroom penthouse has amazing views and is state of the art.
There was a slight drama with the power board one night but management fixed this and were very helpful!

Highly recommended!

We spent a long weekend in July to celebrate a birthday with family and friends. The location right on the docks and next to the Salamanca markets made for a relaxing and easy weekend. The apartment was well appointed and very clean. L'Occitane products and the maxi bar was a nice touch. Bose sound system with iPod dock meant great music. Check in and check out was easy and friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Sullivans Cove Apartments. The Dockside Penthouse is a great apartment to share with friends or family as it sleeps up to 8 people. It is very centrally located right in the middle of the Hobart waterfront, very close to Salamanca Place.

Stayed here in July 2012 with a group Mums escaping for a few days. We booked two of the two bedroom executive apartments and they were situated in the IXL apartment building. There are several locations of the Sullivans Cove apartments, all of which seemed to be in an excellent location. Ours were a few minutes walk to Salamanca place and even closer to the wharf/dock area. Our stay was amazing. The rooms were outstanding with luxury appointments and we wanted for nothing. There is room for parking but we didn't have a car. We arranged for groceries to be delivered so we had a few nibbles etc in the apartment and the kitchen was well stocked with all the things we needed. The apartment had a docking station, great heating, amazing views, gorgeous toiletries and even heated towel racks! It was very spacious and extremely clean. The rooms were also very sound proof and we hardly heard anyone else around us. The reviews that refer to customer service - I can't say we needed any contact with staff so I cannot comment on this, although the staff were helpful when we booked but there was some confusion as to when they would credit my credit card depending on who you talked to . I could not fault this place to stay and we will be back as soon as we can!

Room Tip: I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms but maybe ask which location you will be si...

Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us. It sounds like your stay was fantastic which is what we love to hear! Apologies for confusion around when your card would be charged for your stay. We have recently changed our policy and there have been a few bumps along the way but we think we have it all sorted and the new policy posted clearly on our website. We take payment for direct bookings 1 week prior to arrival but if you want to avoid the credit card surcharges you can by direct deposit or cheque at least 1 week prior to arrival. If booking through our website payment is taken in full as soon as we receive the booking in our system.

It's been our 5th stay in 12 months and like each time prior we did not want to leave. Best location in Hobart. Each apartment has been so spacious, beautifully presented & equiped with everything you could possible need, quality plus. Service has been great, very friendly from booking to departure, from room service personal to office staff.. Also refreshing to have a pleasant manager take a genuine interest in how your stay is going, thanks Lisa.

We will be back, soon!!

Room Tip: Pretty much any room from 3rd floor up in IXL appartments. Penthouses are fabulous with best views
