We were well pleased with our recent (3 night) stay at The Elms. Just out of central Hobart (~1.5km) and walking distance to a nice assortment of North Hobart cafes, restaurants and useful services. A great, less touristy area well suited to people who want to have the use of a hire car and not have the hassle of finding somewhere convenient to park.
As others have said, the property is a 'work in progress' - but the house and gardens look well cared for. The interior is filled with an eclectic mix of the old, not so old... and slightly jarring (compact fluorescent bulbs look pretty odd in a number of the light fittings) - but it is all properly maintained.
Our room (Maple) was of a modest but quite adequate size (in keeping with our low tariff) and was nice and quiet. SImple, clean ensuite with good hot water volume and pressure
Our hosts couldn't have been better. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable, Tina and Raymond let us know all we needed before turning us loose on an unsuspecting local populace.
A simple continental breakfast is included. Coffee drinkers may find that they'll need to make a pit-stop after breakfast if caffeine levels are to be adequately maintained!
We would be happy to return to The Elms in the future.
