Looking to stay in Battery Point will quickly reveal that there are several choices. Of these one must decide exactly what kind of experience they want before the book their lodging. Here are some of the top places to chose from:

The Prince of Wales Hotel is located in central historical Battery Point. The hotel has eleven en suite rooms that cover family, double, and single needs. It is within walking distance of nearly all the sights in Hobart that one might wish to take in, like Salamanca Place, the Saturday market, Wrest Point Casino, Hobart City centre, the warf, and both cruises and ferries. Some of the standard items included are Balcony access and functional windows, Bathrooms, Ironing equipment, mini bars, and tea or coffee makers. The Hotel offers a Bar, restaurant, dry cleaning and laundry service, and special non-smoking floors. Guests get free off street parking, and there is bus service from the airport to the hotel foyer.

Another option is The Grand Old Duke. This facility actually features apartments for rent. There are three of them in the building, one upstairs unit with a two bedroom suite, lounge, and kitchen; one three bedroom unit that has a queen sized bed in one room, and a smaller one bedroom unit with a lounge and a mini-kitchen. With prior arrangement the three units can be reconfigured to suit either two groups of four or a smaller self contained apartment and a family sized apartment for two adults and two children. The building is one of the oldest in the area, and situated centrally in Battery Point. The units are filled the antiques, yet come with modern conveniences. Those seeking to stay can chose for a weekend or the entire season.

If you desire to kick back in proper “cornish fishing village” style, the Shipwrights Arms Hotel might be for you. This building was established in 1846, right in the heart of Battery Point. From the historical information preserved here to the “Old English Corner Pub” style food, one can find lodging and dining both within the walls of “Shippies”.

Other options includes St Ives with it’s one and two bedroom apartments in Battery Point. These apartments are more modern then others located inside the Historical district, but remain close enough that a short walk takes you back in time. Featured are queen size beds, fully equipped units, and comfortable furnishings.
