We arrived in Hobart without any booking but soon found this gem. Initially planned to stay for three nights with the kids but ended up staying for five. Parked out the back most days and rode our bikes to most places around Hobart although its not far to anywhere if you are on foot. The breakfast room is well set... More

We stayed here for four nights as our base in Hobart. All the good reviews are true, all of the bad reviews can be ignored. John runs a great B&B; the house is beautifully renovated, rooms are very comfortable and very warm even in mid-winter. Breakfast is sufficient - cereals, fruit, juice, yoghurt, toast and choice of tasty spreads (if... More

Real life lived up to expectations from the reviews we had read. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the location was excellent and the atmosphere very charming. We did have some issues keeping warm but that is not due to the room heater or electric blanket on the bed; it was very cold when we were there! We walked... More

Our room catered for 3, queen and single bed, beautifully decorated. Old building, interestingly decorated with modern bathroom facilities. Our host John was great and provided us with useful info on good places to eat. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. Very well priced central city location with offsite free parking and wifi.

The building is old and well lived in, which I personally find to be charming but understand may not be to everyones tastes. I was most impressed by the large comfortable bed, complete with electric blanket and generous doona. Location is fantastic - a short stroll down hill to Salamanca (and back up again!) and the host is lovely and... More

Beds were very clean and fresh with electric blankets and comforters. It was quiet and sleeping was good. The host, John, was friendly...very laid back. The building was well located, we could walk to most places easily although if you aren't used to hills it could be an issue. We loved Hobart and surrounding areas. Breakfast was a bit meager...

Our breakfast room with adjoining cafe` is available throughout the day and night and is well stocked with a good range of cereals and breads (including gluten free), as well as fresh jams, honey and peanut butter from the local farmer's market.
