Apartments on Star
Ranked #8 of 55 Specialty Lodging in Hobart
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very happy with the apartment which was very well arranged with three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a large lounge room/kitchen and dining space with all the mod cons including dishwasher.

The main bathroom has a large spa bath. There is a nice external balcony and a lockable private garage.

The host are nice and friendly meeting on arrival and then leaving you to your own thing for the remainder of the stay. This is nice as you do not feel they are watching over your every move.

The location is not on the main road but is up a dead end street. This does not take away from its charm. The apartment is within easy walking distance to the centre of Sandy Bay with the casino down the road if that is your interest. Dining facilities of a wide variety are available in Sandy Bay. One of the unusual features of Hobart is the cost of breakfast and it quality since it does not cost much more than I pay for a coffee in either Canberra or Sydney. I cannot understand why breakfast is less than half the price of these other cities and twice as good.

I recommend staying at the Apartments on Star. It is within walking distance of the Hobart CBD as well.

Room Tip: A Fine Location with Access at a rasonable to all of the CBD

Dear Gordon35au, thank you for taking the time to review our 3 bedroom townhouse. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising for us. Hope to have you stay again in the future. Best regards, Martin

If you want to stay in a self-catering apartment in Hobart stay here. Within easy reach of shops and public transport but also easy to drive yourself anywhere. Do not be put off from walking to Salamanca Place or the waterfront as the hill is not too difficult to walk up.

Martin and Tony are the most delightful hosts and Tony's tips for day trips are excellent.

We will be back.

Hi RossSL,, Thank you for taking the time to review us. It's nice to be tucked away in a quiet area, but yet within walking distance of all amenities. We'll look forward to welcoming you back at some time in the future, best regards, Martin

I would like to thank Martin and Tony for a fantastic stay at Apartments on Star. . We arrived early on the Saturday morning and Martin said he would try and have the apartment ready for us. We were so grateful as it enabled our son to have his afternoon nap as we were checked in by 11.30am. Martin and Tony were so friendly and helpful. The whole apartment was so well equipped with enough coffee/ tea, dishwashing tablets, cling wrap, and enough washing powder for our whole stay. I loved that the kettle had boiled and we could sit down for a cup of coffee :) Martin provided and installed a safety gate to ensure that the upstairs living area was safe for our 11 month old son. The bedroom was a great size to fit a rollaway and a port a cot. The Apartment location was great it was an easy walk into Sandy bay.
Thanks Martin and Tony for making our stay so enjoyable. Kind Regards Jo and John

Room Tip: We loved the 2 bedroom townhouse and the bedroom could fit a rollaway bed and port-a cot for a baby

We arrived to a warm greeting from Tony who made us feel very welcome. We were immediately impressed by the setting, facilities and ambience of the apartment. Throughout our several day stay both Tony and Martin were helpful and willing, easily chatting with both the 7 and the 70 year old. Great choice of restaurants within an easy walk and close to Salamanca and the dock area. Thanks again to our hosts for helping us to enjoy a memorable family holiday.

We have stayed there for 3 nights and we were allocated with the apartment for couple (the one located on the middle level). It's with verandah and Jacuzzi. Those basic utensils and home appliances namely washing machine and dishwasher are also thoughtfully equipped. Everything made us feeling that we were staying home. It's also conveniently located which is particularly good for the tourists who don't drive like us. Shops, restaurants and supermarket are just within 10min walk. Battery point, one of the attractions in Hobart could also be reached by approx 20-30min walk. It's recommended if u wanna experience a home like holiday and are tired of staying at conventional hotels or hostel. :)

My parents, myself and my partner had our first trip to Tasmania for our Christmas holiday in 2013. We were so glad that we found Apartments on Star - we booked the apartment three months before the holiday seasons, and Tony and Martin were happy to accommodate us. The apartment was very cosy, and within walking distance to Battery Point, Salamanca and waterfront. The apartment (and kitchen) was very well equipped. It is the first time that I feel contented to be cooking dinner every single day during a vacation!

Martin was very friendly and helpful. From the first phone call to helping us prepare Christmas dinner the day we flew in (when everything was closed!) to our departure, Martin never fails to impress us with his hospitality. We'll definitely spread the words, and you can count on us coming back to stay on our next trip to Hobart!

Room Tip: We could watch sunrise and spot the yachts coming in from the Sydney-Hobart race from Apartment 1.

We are a couple from Queensland and were looking forward to our first visit to Tasmania. We booked online at Apartments on Star for our first three nights in Hobart - great spot - great hosts - who warmly greeted us after hours. Easy to access Battery Point and Salamanca. Fully self contained apartment with everything we needed. Thanks Tony and Martin.
