I stayed at St. Ives years ago because of its location and it was basic.
I stayed this month again because of its location and was very pleasantly surprised. Very smart makeover and a bed I could have taken home. Well done.

I would definitely stay here again should I return to Hobart. Huge rooms with huge beds! Definitely value for money. Food is easily available around the motel thus one needn't worry abt the lack of restaurants. The kitchen helps if you need to prepare meals. Great plasma TV too!

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let this put you off staying here as it almost did with me! On the inside, this accommodation is modern, clean, quiet and well-appointed. The bed was comfortable and the room was serviced daily (including daily resupply of toiletries and milk in the fridge).

I took advantage of the cooking facilities and went shopping at Coles and Woolworths at Sandy Bay, which are only about 10 to 15 minutes walk away. There are also lots of restaurants at Sandy Bay (various Asian, Indian, Modern Australian, McDonalds!) which are much more economically-priced than the Salamanca area. The walk back up the hill carrying bags of groceries was not particularly pleasant, but it wasn't too far (and there is a bus that follows this route).

After reading prior TripAdvisor reviews, I was pleased to note that:
- the cereal and toast breakfast is still only $3
- the minibar is still incredibly cheap (for example, water is $1, a packet of snakes is $2 and beer starts at $2 a bottle)
- the mug problem mentioned by previous travellers (with the mugs being too small) has been solved, with decent-sized mugs being provided

The only areas I would like to see improved would be the following:
- Even though St Ives has positioned itself as a self-catering apartment, the fridge is small and is completely full of mini-bar items. It would be good if guests could be offered the option to have a reduced mini-bar (for example, just one of everything in the fridge) so that it fits on one shelf and there are two shelves available for groceries).

- My stay was in late Autumn, and it was very cold outside. The heating in the apartment was a bit variable - some parts of the room were nice and warm, while others were really cold. The bathroom in particular seemed a few degrees colder than the rest of the apartment. The shower is in a large space, which is not fully enclosed, which made showering a particularly chilly experience!

Despite these points, I had a really great stay, and will definitely stay there again the next time I am in Hobart for work.

The room was clean and well-appointed and the staff friendly and efficient. Service to the room was fab. Location excellent with amenities and many tourist spots within a ten minute walk. The best thing about our stay was the quietness of the location. Considering St Ives is in a capital city and just off a major road, there is little or no noise once inside. Absolutely no hesitation in recommending these apartments as some of the best in town.
PS: Very comfy beds!!

We stayed at St. Ives from April 29 to May 2 2009 in a studio . The room was not large but adequate for two people. It had everything as published on its website - LCD TV, a kitchenette complete with the necessary cutlery & utensils, iron, hairdryer. The room was clean , furnishing modern, good bed & mattress, bathroom with all the amenities (shower only, no bath).The location is superb, walking distance to Salamanca Place, harbour , restaurants and supermarket. Couldn't find any fault except that reception is from 8.00 am to 9.00pm only, so those who are leaving very early be sure to make all the arrangements the night before.
