Shipwrights Arms is in an excellent location in Battery Point close to wonderful restaurants and historic buildings. it is a vibrant pub with an excellent restaurant and wonderful staff. Breakfast is hostel style but if you want wonderful breakfast it is two minutes away at the bakery. Battery Point is a terrific area to fully experience Hobart. It is a must destination


The bed was comfortable and came with fluffy towels and toiletries as well as a heater and Dyson cooler. The location is within walking distance of Hamden Rd’s Jackman & McRoss for delicious breakfasts or simply great coffees and baked delights and an easy walk to Kelly’s steps, Salamanca Place and onto Brooke Pier for the ferry to Mona. Free parking facility is available to guests


It is above a pub/restaurant. But you can hear no noises. The food in the restaurant is very good. The staff is very friendly. The location is great. “History” in all streets and very nice surrounding. It feels like UK. The room size was Ok, the bath was OK as well. Parking available at the back. All in all a good stay.
