We stayed in the Wellington for 7 nights. When we booked, the advertising stated that a car park was available. Just prior to leaving we were advised that there was only one car park available for the three units. We were also advised that the parking was allocated on a first in best dressed basis. There appeared to be no other quests requiring parking during our stay, so we were able to park in the car park the entire time. If we had been required to share the car park it would have necessitated looking for parking on the street. There is very little street parking in the area with daytime. parking limited to 2 hour periods between 8am and 6pm. Our stay was pleasant and the area is excellent being close to restaurants. The facilities were lacking slightly in that there was no cable TV options and very limited DVD's supplied.

Parking in Battery Point (and Hobart generally) can be problematic but as the Grand Old Duke is so well located, most guests don’t require parking. The Grand Old Duke has free wifi and free Netflix but doesn’t supply DVD’s.

A beautiful heritage building and interior, great heating for the winter. Lovely street and 10 min walk to Salamanca, plus a couple of cafes and restaurants within a 2 minute walk !

History, charm and location!

Pros: Style and location
Cons: A parking space for each apartment please.
Ted, our host was very helpful. The apartment was warm, clean and tasfully decorated with a taste of Hobart's colonial past. The central location meant we could walk to restaurants nearby and the ferry to MONA with only a 5 minute walk to Slamanca Markets.
