“Absolutely Fabulous Penthouse Apartment”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I recently booked this amazing Penthouse Apartment right in the sky for a get together for several friends & ourselves to celebrate a special birthday & could not have been more thrilled with my choice.
It was perfect & our guests were amazed with the great view of Hobart waterfront & city lights.
There was plenty of space & the facilities were first class as was Kate who helped make our visit even more special.
Thank you to the whole team at Avalon Retreat for making it a birthday to remember,not only for myself,but also our guests.

“A nice little escape with expansive views of the river!”
Reviewed 26 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We enjoyed our stay at Avalon City Retreat as we have at the other Avalon properties on the east coast also. Friendly and helpful service on check in and out. Good selection of food available. The beds were absolutely divine and we all slept well!! The views were gorgeous too. We had a lovely time here.

“Amazing Apartment with a few things that didn't work ”
Reviewed 14 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is an absolutely unique and gorgeous apartment on the roof of an office building. See through glass with a zen feel to it, and gorgeous views of Hobart Bay. It has a deck facing the bay and a deck in the back with a picnic table and Japanese bath. The location is very central and getting into the building was easy.

The issues were that I like to take baths but the bathtub leaked and couldn't be filled. They knew this but didn't let us know. Also, one of the heaters didn't work and it's cold in Hobart at night. Finally, I had to contact them about check in rather than vice versa.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 30 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

What an unforgettable experience it was to stay at Avalon City Retreat in Hobart. The photos simply don't do it justice. It's even more amazing in real life. Thankfully we were able to arrive during daylight hours on a gorgeous, sunny day. We were gob smacked, the vista was simply stunning. What an incredible place. Perched up on top of a city building in a glass omnipod. We had everything we could possibly need. Wonderful breakfast supplies, a bottle of champagne, supplies of organic loose leaf tea, fresh fruit, fully stocked mini bar.....there was no way we were going to leave the place in search of dinner. We rang the Astor Grill across the road and ordered from their Sumptuous menu and they delivered. We thoroughly recommend Avalon.
