Gattonside was a wonderful place to stay in Hobart. Position was perfect being within walking distance of cafes, restaurants, market and the water. Accommodation was very comfortable with relaxing atmosphere and several personal touches. We were well looked after by the delightful Lili ,always available to give good information and advice..

My partner and I had booked the recent long weekend 7-10 March for a self contained apartment @ Hampden with the Red Awning group. However, a few days before flying to Hobart, we were informed that the apartment we booked was no longer available as the verandah glass had broken - no problem we said as we were offered accommodation...

We stayed at this lovely Bed and Breakfast on our last night in Hobart and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. While there is no staff overnight, this didn't cause us any concerns. We had a very large, beautifully furnished room with a comfortable king bed. The location, near Sandy Beach as well as Battery Point, allowed us time to explore this... More

We couldn't sleep at all over a night. Fire and security alarm went off 3 times from 2:30am to 5:30am. The first alarm went off over 30 minuets, all the guests woke up, some of the guests packed their suits case in case of the emergency. "Non of the staffs stays over a night in the guest house", hence, we... More

This beautiful kept, stylish heritage building, was a joy to return to after a big day out or even just a little walk around the historic streets of Battery Point. The biulding is located in such a lovely spot, just a short walk down to the markets at Salamanca on Saturday morning. The lounge was a relaxing place to sit... More

We stayed here 3 nights in Room 7 just before Christmas. A most enjoyable stay. Our room was enormous, on top floor and rear of property. Was spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable bed with high quality linen and very quiet. Breakfast each morning in the dining room was just lovely.

Beautiful heritage property with rose-bush lined walk to a Victorian porch. Friendly staff but this is Tassie so everyone is friendly! One of our best breakfasts in Tasmania. Parlour with sherry port & chocolate. Very large rooms, generally quiet despite the busy road out front - it is a distance away from the house proper. We stayed twice and preferred... More

We spent two nights in Gattonside. The rooms are spacious but lack for warmth and touch given this is an 1885 mansion. Service is impersonal with a code provided for check in. Breakfast is ok but the office is beside the dining area and the receptionist was loud while we were eating. Location is excellent. Could be a fair but... More
