My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay at the start of our "foodie trip" around Tasmania. It was a great find! The hotel was not staffed when we arrived but check in was easy with an access code and keys waiting for us. Our room was lovely, we stayed in room 6. There was a very comfortable queen... More

I booked Amberley House in Sandy Bay for the first couple of days in my Tasmania holiday as I was struggling to find availability elsewhere over the busy Easter period. While not in the centre of Hobart, it was close enough that it wasn't an issue. After checking out many of the other places I'd considered in my desk research,... More

Located across the road from the Wrest Point Casino, beautiful house, well presented. Clean, cosy, well appointed. Original features yet graciously modern. We had a delicious continental breakfast in our room. Our apartment had a small kitchen. Huge windows looked out over back yard and gardens, very pleasant. Grand dining room (which we didn't get to experience due to an... More

Location, value and historic charm are the main reasons to stay here. We had two nights and were able to easily walk to Hobart centre, a very enjoyable experience via battery point and it's old world charm. Breakfast each morning was a more than adequate continental fare, served by a lovely lady whose charm matched the ambience of the place.... More

I spent two nights at Amberley House in Hobart. Highly recommended. The atmosphere is lovely. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The included breakfast is delicious. It is an easy walk to University of Tasmania, Battery Point and the waterfront.

Amberley House was relatively inexpensive. It's a lovely old house with large, light filled rooms in Sandy Bay, very convenient to the University and to Wrest Point Casino. The owners have chosen furnishings and reproductions to suit the era, making it a pleasant change from a standard motel, which would cost the same. Happily some of the best of the... More

Good location, nice staff and nice feel to the house with lovely main room. However overall was disappointed. The breakfast was a let down particularly reading the previous reviews, we had the same toast and cereal for 6 days, no variation, no offer of even basic muffins or croissants,let alone a hot breakfast.

Great accommodation, and (for us) conveniently located near University of Tasmania and the Salamanca Square area where we were based for a conference. Free wifi, fudge and port was lovely and a nice way to return 'home'. Room was neat and charming. Breakfast plentiful (more than I expected for a Boutique/B&B offering).
