This is not a fancy hotel - it is a an old style bed and breakfast with infinite charm. We enjoyed our breakfast - omlettes, the port and the fudge. Only possible improvement would be a roaring fire in the lounge - to warm us up after a freezing Hobart day. Loved it

We stayed 2 nights last week in room 4 (spa). It was a lovely large room which was very comfortable. It was on the side of the building, so it was quiet with hardly any traffic noise. It was also within easy walking distance of Salamanca and even the centre of Hobart. Breakfast was included with plenty of fresh fruit,... More

I loved the idea of this place, and Ioved the history of the building. We had a lovely large room at the front of the building, but that also made it quite noisy, including street traffic & people coming in & out the front door. The occupants of room 2 next door were quite noisy & the sound travelled through.... More

Gattonside is a magnificent Bed and Breakfast located very close to Salamanca and the centre of Hobart. We had room 7 which was a lovely big room on the side of the house. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was huge (with spa). Breakfast was included in our stay but we were too comfortable in bed... More

Stayed one night only, but would definitely stay again. Lovely sized room in historic house. Sort of place you should stay several nights to appreciate historic accommodation. Freshly cooked breakfast with excellent service. Price of room was very reasonable given the location, close to Salamanca, with ample parking. Have no hesitation about recommending the accommodation and yes it is old,... More

The accommodation was lovely, it was nice and peaceful and you weren't annoyed by other couples or staff. Actually you never really saw any staff until breakfast. Breakfast was not what we expected, was very light on and yet it was advertised as a fully cooked breakfast but 1 egg, 1 sausage on a small piece of toast with a... More

We really enjoyed our 3 nights at Gattonside Heritage Accommodation in a twin room. Such charming accommodation within easy walking distance to Salamanca Square. Breakfast was excellent every morning and although we are not big port drinkers we loved the fact that after lovely meals in Hobart we were welcomed back to a port nightcap.

The elegance of the house and staff was amazing. The room was spacious, the bed king size and very comfortable. The house was beautifully maintained. Breakfast changed every day and was served in the gorgeous period dining room, sunlit and overlooking the garden. There was no 'lockout' time, so one could return at any time. I would definitely stay there... More
