We were generously upgraded from an apartment to this heritage accommodation so that our request for early access could be met. The staff were most gracious, considerate and generous in every aspect of our visit -the upgrade, the willingness to oblige us inside/outside with photography, the invitation to our daughter to join us in a complimentary cooked breakfast (which was...

A beautifully restored and maintained heritage property and Ideally located within easy walking distance of Battery point and The hobart waterfront. Impossible not to enjoy the breakfast room and the fare presented with passion by Annie. A great way to start the day. Will be back.

My sister and I stayed for one night in May this year and I can't speak highly enough of the service we received.

We had a long weekend planned to Hobart in autumn and chose this lovely B&B because it was close to everything we wanted to experience. It was the best place for us in that regard as we opted to be located within easy walking distance and did not want to hire a car. We were not disappointed with its location... More

Stayed 3 nights in April 2014 and found Gattonside to be excellent. Not only is it a stately building with large, well appointed rooms and friendly, helpful staff it is also located within easy walking distance of Salamanca Place and Hobart city.
