I stayed at the’ Hobart Gables’ from the 4th - 7th July 2013 from Sydney; a better choice for accommodation I could not have made.
Hobart was freezing on the day I arrived but very kindly the owners had turned on the main heater in my apartment so I walked in to a beautiful and warm residence. This was to be the start of a wonderful 4 days in Hobart.
My apartment was amazing! It was apparently built in the 40’s and it is everything I would want in my own home, let alone holiday accommodation! Beautiful lead-light windows, large spacious rooms, a large bathroom (with separate shower) and a full-sized bath that I could have stayed in all night, plus, it was sooo quiet. No police sirens and aircraft noise that I usually hear in Sydney. From most rooms of my apartment I had a great view of Mount Wellington – which was covered in snow for the duration of my stay, in fact, I could see it from the comfort of my warm bed.
My stay was such a home-away-from-home I would have been happy to have stayed for months! The apartment was fitted out with all the ‘mod-cons’ – Russell Hobbs kitchen toys and an espresso coffee machine, plus, it was really well kitted out with kitchenware, cutlery, glassware etc. Everything I needed and more was supplied.
The new owners Jo-Anne and Gracie were very accommodating and made me feel very welcome. They are the most perfect of hosts and nothing was too much trouble. They have great local knowledge and were more than happy to point me in the direction of things to see and do. The famous North Hobart café and restaurant scene was only a stone’s throw away and an easy walk.
I cannot recommend the ‘Hobart Gables’ strongly enough and I have already made my second booking for October this year.
