One of Hobart’s oldest and most historic areas, Battery Point stands as one of the most authentic ways to step back in time. Buildings made of sandstone have stood since very near the community’s founding. It is famed as one of the more exclusive areas and has a number of large, well built homes, apartments, and even historical cottages. Connected to Salamanca by Kelly’s Steps, constructed back in the 1830′s out of massive sandstone blocks, Battery Point is on of those places that needs to taken in on foot to really get a good feel for the place.
Salamanca Place has 24 hour taxi ramps. The Red Double Decker sightseeing bus takes in Battery Point and Hobart points of interest. Metro bus services are close by and the Airport Bus runs to the airport. Ferries and river taxis depart from nearby Sullivan's Cove. It's a short walk to the city centre, Sandy Bay and the University.

Ellerslie Cottage was even lovelier than expected - cosy, comfortable, private and peaceful. Kelly had organised some kitchen provisions for us - cheese, bread, milk, crackers, fruit and eggs - which were very welcome, and the kitchen itself was well-equipped. The location was very central - perfect for strolling to Battery Point restaurants and to Salamanca, and having off-street parking for one car was a big bonus.
We would definitely choose to stay here again, and to recommend it to family/friends visiting Hobart.
Thanks Kelly, for a fabulous stay in Tassie. Your apartment was clean and cosy, in a great location, with a well equipped kitchen and great bathroom amenities. Thanks for the cheese and snacks. We will definitely come back and recommend your apartment to friends.
We really enjoyed our stay at Ellerslie Cottage. Kelly was very helpful before and during our visit. The cottage has recently been renovated so kitchen and bathroom feel brand new. Bedding very comfortable, cottage is well heated (essential in Hobart) and appointed with all the necessities (including goodies in the fridge!). Best of all is the location...5 min walk to a range of cafes, restaurants and pubs. Salamanca Markets just down the hill along with the rest of Hobart city. Highly recommended!
Our stay Ellerslie Cottage was better than expected. The photos shown didn't do the cottage justice. The location was fantastic, the beds were heaven, the cottage inside was clean, modern and warm. A pleasant surprise with food goodies provided, so there was no need for us to rush to the supermarket. My ten year old son didn't want to leave when our time was up.
We would certainly stay again and highly recommend the cottage.
Ellerslie Cottage was set up beautifully with comfortable beds, good bed linen and a thoughtfully provisioned kitchen. It was really well located and we managed to walk everywhere during our 3-day stay - including down the picturesque Hobart Rivulet. Just 5 minutes up the hill from the Salamanca Markets and great little restaurants. We'd definitely choose Ellerslie Cottage for a second stay and recommend it to our friends.
Kelly was a fantastic host! She made us all feel welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived (cheese, bread, fruit and wine left in the kitchen when we checked in).
The accommodation itself was clean, comfortable and in a great location. I would stay here again if I ever return to Hobart.
Communication with Kelly was a breeze - she was there to welcome us and then available via phone or email if we needed anything. Kelly has thought of everything in her cottage. Nice appliances, tasteful furnishings, plenty of blankets, movies and reading material. The location is ideal - short walk to Salamanca, Battery Point and downtown Hobart.
