“Good if your on a budget”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Ok this is not a five star place but certainly doesnt deserve a bad rap?
This building is old and would require a good clean or update but other than that the linen was clean and bathroom clean which is most important to travellers.
Not the easiest place to find as it is on a corner and the numbers go from 223 to 211 which is the number of the house and a hint for travellers is there is a carpark at the back of the accommodation but turn into Molle St to get to the carpark.
Our host Frank was curteous but not over the top.
Continetal breakfast supplied but not outstanding very basic for a B/B not a great selection of cereal no fruit but great selection of jams to go with the toast.

Room Tip: Room at the bottom of the stairs room 8 is quiet and easy access to the car as the other rooms dont...

My friend and I have just come back from Hobart after a two night stay at the Edinburgh Gallery, a very central location, only ten minutes to walk right into the wharf area. The rooms we had were comfortable, my bathroom was spotless as was the bed linen, both things very important to me. Perhaps the occasional dust of the skirting boards but no great problem, Breakfast was fine, plenty of choice and I could have as much or as little as I wanted. Frank the manager was very helpful and friendly. The rates were good, if you want 5 star go to a 5 star hotel.

Wow, I was shocked by the condition of this place. An overwhelming food smell greeted us as we entered the building. We settled into our room and relaxed for a few minutes before heading out for the evening. I pulled back the quilt and a silverfish ran out of the sheets! (Just read another review which confirmed I'm not the only one to have this experience here.) The sheets themselves looked like they had been scrunched up still partly damp and no effort had been made to make the bed properly and tuck the sheets under the mattress, which I then saw didn't have a protector on it either. The rug, laid suspectly askance on the carpet, looked like it hadn't been vacuumed for a couple of weeks. The bathroom window was mostly boarded up and the artificial lighting wasn't crash hot, leaving the bathroom very dark. There was water damage on the ceiling. This place is noisy to boot, being on a main road corner.

Room Tip: Don't bother.

In my fist trip to Hobart I'd managed to stay there for few days, my first choice was for the location, it was close to the airport and easily accessible to all parts of the city.Secondly for a businessman on trip it was affordable and economical. I had good access to the internet through their high speed WiFi and the morning tea they served was the best in town. Looking forward to a visit again.

Cautious because of the reviews - but already booked before we read them ... we decided to take the chance and move on after one night if it really was as awful as we had read. We booked the Queen-sized room with its own on-suite -and so glad we did! It's downstairs, but not cluastrophobic- and has an exit out the back way if needed in an emergency or to carry our gear in from the free oarking outside. Traffic noice was minimal - especially for a city.
Frank was gracious; showed us the room, explained the breakfast area and anytime access to the kithcen - and politely unlocked the back gate to allow us to bring our gear inside with a minimal of carrying.
The place was old - that's why we went there.... and not too expensive ... and close enough for an easy walk for two older traveleers to leave the car and walk to the wharf every day ... just what we needed. The bed was comfortable enough, and although the bedding and towles aren't new, servicaeble enough for us not to worry. And NO BEDBUGS1
We were warmed by the oil heater - everything was as we expected a less-expensive accommodation to be. The kitchen had a good range of conditments to add to a basic toast breakfast, and tea, coffee or milo was available at any time during the day/evening. We noted Frank use the dish washer each morning after guests had left.
So - what do wwe really think? Well, we'll be coming back!

Room Tip: Queen suite with onw on-suite downstairs is the best option, and even sleeps a third if needed.

Yes, the rooms are big but that's the only good thing about them.. Cracks, mould, water damage are everywhere (at least the one I stayed)
On the other hand, the owner is nice and polite and the 'kitchen' is ok. It's a good location (close to centre) although on a very busy road (so ask for a room at the back)
Depending on the price you pay, it could be an ok stay (for a night or 2!!)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back due to road traffic noise at the front

After reading some of the Trip Advisor reviews I was very concerned about our stay. However, we found it to be perfectly serviceable (spacious and tolerably clean room etc). I would suggest that it be reclassified as a hostel rather than B&B, so if you are happy with hostel style accommodation then you would be fine here.
