Excellent Location and Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoughly enjoyed our stay at Abel Cottage,

There was enough room for the six of us ages from 16-63

We stayed 11 nights

Highly recommend anyone wishing to stay in Hobart to stay at Abel cottage

As we didn't get to see all of Tasmania we will definitely be back and I'm sure we will book Abel cottage again

I had the pleasure of meeting Jen while we were there

It is a close walk to the local shops(woolies chemist etc)

It's a nice walk along the river in the early morning

We even walked to Salamanca Markets

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

It is very clean and tidy property. In a very quiet area and with a small view of the water. The property had everything that we needed for the long weekend away.

Good property in quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 8 nights in Abel Cottage. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need with a nice view from the lounge room. Great to have some outdoor space. Parking permit provided for easy parking on street. Some games and books for the kids. The bathroom shower is pretty small, however is functional. The front room with the double bed is pretty small with not much room on either side of the bed and really needs block out curtains!

We did enjoy our stay at this property.

Close to the city's attractions

  • 4 of 5

Abel cottage was a spacious and conveniently located property located in Sandy Bay. An enjoyable 15-20 minute walk through Sandy Bay led to the city's tourist attractions including Salamanca Markets, Battery Point, the water front and ferry to MONA. A lovely park with views of the River Derwent is also close by. Everything was provided for, and the view was relaxing and enjoyable. It is a lovely older property but a few of the amenities could possibly benefit from a facelift.
