Stayed 2 nights in a spacious room with a fully equipped pantry/fridge available at all times, just outside the room. However, a few creature comforts were missing: unexpected sharing of toilet & bathroom and an absence of suitable room heating (the small column heater provided was totally inadequate in maintaining the room at a comfortable temperature). Also, some mix-up with... More

We really appreciate comments as they help us to improve our service. The heater has been checked and found was not working properly so it has been replaced. Our gallery has been updated with images of the 26 metre gently sloping path and bathroom. The bathroom and toilet are separate and shared, as stated on our website, by 2 rooms... More

The highlight of Bendalls was the friendly and accommodating reception from Karen and Roger. The house is charming and characterful and only a stone's throw from the eateries of North Hobart. Slight detractions were not having an en suite, which becomes a little uncomfortable when both downstairs rooms are occupied and you need to share. Also not having a communal... More

We arrived late at night, but the directions provided were spot on and we were greeted by our hosts and made very welcome. Easy parking on the street for our hire car and a good base for access to city centre and day trips. Plenty of hot water, filter coffee and yummy poached eggs to cook. Home preserves were the...

Our stay at Bendalls bed and breakfast was wonderful. The beds and room were comfortable. The history associated with the building was very interesting. The breakfast provided was excellent, with home made jams! Location was also good, very close to restaurants and a short drive to the harbour. Would recommend and stay again.

Lovely place and hosts. Delicious breakfast and comfortable, practical rooms. I would recommend and I would stay here again. I think if you're looking for something with a bit of character and history this is the right place. And I very much admire the work the owners are doing with the building.

This place is adorable. Karen and Rodger have converted an amazing historic building into a B&B with semi self-contained rooms. The decor replicates the aesthetics of the mid 1800s. The bed, however, is definitely new- hence the comfort! A simple breakfast is provided, including homemade jams, bread, eggs and OJ, and there's plenty of tea and coffee available any time.... More

We spent four nights at Bendalls. Imagine sleeping in an original 1840s convict house! Comfortable accommodation, good location (frequent bus, but we often chose to walk to sites/restaurants since the neighborhood was interesting). Karen and Roger provided a lot of much-appreciated local information. We cannot thank Karen enough for helping us out while we were negotiating the sale of our... More

Our first 2 nights in Hobart were spent here and it was lovely. The room had all we needed although in hindsight I would choose the queen size bedroom (Samuel Bendall) as it was brighter and warmer. We arrived to the first rain that Hobart had in months. We shared a bathroom/kitchen, but never saw the other lady staying. We... More

Stayed here last week and was thoroughly impressed with the genuine hospitality. Karen and Roger offer a real welcome and take their lead from the visitors. I loved the generous balcony, just the spot for gazing out at Mt Wellington over breakfast or a pot of leaf tea. Fantastic location, buses available every 10 mins Mon to Friday. For travellers...

We stayed for two nights as a base to explore MONA and Central Hobart. The location was ideal for us as we were able to park with no hassle and we were a five minute drive from the variety of restaurants in North Hobart. The owners are very friendly and clearly take a lot of care in what they do.... More
