We stayed at Gattonside in September and had a wonderful time. What a beautiful, grand mansion it is. The hosts, Kat and Bernadette, were fantastic. Very friendly, approchable and helpful but also professional and non intrusive. We did some great sightseeing on their recommendations. The breakfasts were absolutely top notch - delicious! One morning we had a souffle and the... More

The house is just a very cozy, lovely, beauiful place where we felt more than comfortable! Wonderful, nicely furnished rooms, a lot of space, delicious breakfast and an atmosphere that welcomes you. The owners were very helpful and just seemed to really like what they were doing, hosting people. Gattonside felt for us like coming home and we would always... More

I highly recommend this delighful mansion. Walking distance to everything, spacious rooms done up to a tee. Spa bath, plenty of hot water, comfy beds and a delicious breakfast. For anyone heading to Hobart, get away from the run fo the mill hotels and experience some history in pure comfort.

Great location just a couple of blocks from Salmanca Saturday market and Waterfront. Hosts - John and Nicoli -- were very gracious and helpful. I particularly liked their fresh flowers in every room and the free sherry in the sitting room. They prepared great breakfasts and cappacinos. The first free wi-fi in any hotel or B&B in Australia.

Gattonside is a19C mansion in Battery Point, a heritage suburb close to Salamanca Square and Sullivans Cove. Sandy Bay and Wrest Point are in the next suburb. The house was renovated not so long ago when the Gourlays bought it and it has 8 good sized rooms. The reasonably sized bathroom had a deep spa bath and great shower. As... More

During 3 months in Australia, the Gattonside was easily the best accommodation we experienced and it is surely the best B&B in Hobart. The B&B is a remarkable historic building that is beautifully finished inside and out. It is quiet, immaculately clean and contains all the modern amenities, including Wi-Fi, which is usually an expensive commodity in Australian hotels. The... More

The Gattonside is perfectly situated to walk to the wonderful Salamanca Market on Saturday, the pubs and restaurants by the waterfront, as well as the campus of UTAS. The accommodation is beautifully decorated, and meticulously maintained. Our "bedroom" was so spacious it had sufficient seating for two people to work comfortably on computers. Oh yes, there was wifi included. The... More
