About Shipwright's Arms Hotel

Book Direct with the Owner at Shipwright's Arms Hotel with Accommodation ACT in Hobart, for all your holiday and travel needs.

The Shipwright's Arms Hotel offers accommodation in Battery Point, in Southern Tasmania. 'Shippies' as it is known to the locals, was established in 1846. Situated in the heart of historic Battery Point, it is a short and picturesque stroll to the bustling shopping, dining and cultural precinct of Salamanca Place, the Hobart waterfront, Parliament and the Central Business District. We offer comfortable and reasonably priced accommodation, with four air-conditioned double ensuite rooms with television and five double budget rooms with shared facilities. Self-serve Continental breakfast is included. There is a private guest laundry and a small sun lounge with television. Our steak and seafood bistro is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Bookings are essential. There is a separate menu for the public bar with daily specials. Our comfortable function rooms are the ideal venue for that special lunch or dinner for up to 50 people. The English-style bar (built by a shipwright) features Tasmanian timbers. It has a unique collection of Tasmanian and maritime memorabilia. A log fire keeps it cosy in winter. In summer, relax in our sail-shaded beer garden. Battery Point is a five minute drive (2 kilometres / 1 mile) from Hobart.

    The area of the hotel is just perfect. It is so nice to be able to walk through this beautiful neighbourhood. We had a basic room with shared bathroom. I was worried with the number of people downstairs in the pub, but after 11 pm, it was very quiet. I like the possibility to have a light but free breakfast near the bow window with view on the neighbourhood. The parking is easy to park and it is very closed from Salamanca's area by walk.

    BEST PUB IN HOBART. 171 year old pub in historic Battery Point which is a 500m walk from Salamanca. It’s the official Sydney to Hobart pub where the crews go to celebrate after the iconic race - the walls are covered with an AMAZING array of sailing memorabilia. Great traditional pub atmosphere and a superb Pub Bistro. Great food, great atmosphere, lots of history in wonderful location. Pubs don’t get better than this ole beauty !!! A MUST in Hobart

    Fabulous location with views in every direction. Close to an even more wonderful bakery/eatery. Easy walking to the harbour and the cbd. Lovely staff and very good in-house eating. Not as "original" as I would have liked, but everything worked.

    Ate at the bistro and had a very enjoyable meal. The venue is comfortable and full of historic photos which add to the character of the place. They were very busy on the night but service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. Not an extensive menu but the seafood and steak dishes we selected were beautifully cooked and presented. Highly recommend you have a mini loaf - fantastic! At the higher end of bistro prices but still good value for money.
