I booked this through Wotif, and was surprised at the cost for a studio apartment with a water view, but assumed it must be of high quality. I usually stay at the Salamanca on the Pier which has a better position and is more reasonably priced.
I could even have stayed at the beautiful Henry Jones Art Hotel for less, but my husband wanted an apartment so we could buy oysters off the pier and generally enjoy the many picnic delights of Hobart.
We were given a second floor apartment, which was really the first floor - very close to the ground and therefore noisy if you kept the balcony door open for some fresh air.
The room had a cold grey decor with tiling around the kitchen, eating area. There was a dirty, unattractive balcony that I had hoped we would sit out on to eat our picnic and enjoy some Tassie pinot. Even were it not dirty, it was inaccessible due to the fact the "state of the art" electric blinds were broken.
The bathroom was strange - great shower but nowhere to put anything and a mirror that was a series of small squares.
The layout of the room was poor, including a TV facing the bed which it made it the only place you could watch.
I wouldn't have felt so disgruntled and disatisfied had it not been for the price I was paying - nearly $400.
