“Very Impressed. Highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2007

Stayed here approx April/May 07 with my fiance (at the time.) Found the accomodation to be of a high standard and a friendly greeting when arrived. Thought the accomodation was of sound value and in fact booked in my partners parents for the following week as they were travelling to the same destination. (They had a very pleasant stay too.) Walking distance to the Salamanca Market and a decent Curry House name "Magic Curry". Would go back again without hesitation. Breakfast was of high quality with good choice.

  • Liked — Had comfort mixed with good location and heritage ambience that suits the locale
  • Disliked — Nothing comes to mind

A brilliant family run guest house with a personal touch. Clean and tidy rooms and friendly staff. Nicole and her husband John make excellent hosts and are helpful with local info. The amenities are second to none, it has a large drawing room with complimentary port and chocolate; a free laundry service and a substantial breakfast to start the day. The only draw back is it is an uphill walk after sampling Hobart's fine hostelries! Due to Gattonside's location there are plenty to choose from in the local area. I would recommend "Shippy's" not far from the hotel. All in all a good choice of accommodation.

We stayed at the Gattonside in April for 2 nights the only thing that was wrong was we should have stayed longer as the owner was the most friendly and accomodating we encountered on our 4 week tour of Australia.
The four poster bed in our room gave us the rest we needed as we had travelled across Tasmania the previous day.
An added bonus was the B+B is closer than we were led to believe to the Harbour and Salamanca area, we were dubious as a lot of places claim times of walking distances which are lets say a little optomistic.
If you like a good hearty breakfast you will enjoy the excellent cooking.
We have always tended to stay away from B+B's in the past as the image is of overpowering landladies and poor facilities which could be no further from the truth in this case.
When booking over the internet there is always a risk as pictures of places can be a little rosy, in this case we were more than pleasantly suprised as the images on the internet did not do the place justice.

What a fantastic place and the people just can't do enough for you.The Breakfasts are the best and when I go back to Hobart I will not be staying anywhere else.
The quality of the establishment and the location is just perfect.

Everything about the trip went well, perfect trip on the boat across Bass Strait and beautiful scenic drive to Hobart and it just got better in Hobart.

We checked into Gattonside and couldn't believe our luck again, magnificent room, beautiful weather and so close to the things we wanted to see and experience. A walk through Battery Point after a fantastic breakfast and the indulgence of fine wine and food in Salamanca Place.

What a great spot and a really special few days away so we will definitely do the escape again but this time with friends. Nicole and her team run a great little business and I look forward to my next stay there later this year.

Had a very enjoyable stay, room was exactly as described and more. Our hosts John & Nicole treated us like royalty from the port & chocolates in the evening to great breakfast enjoyed the next day. Would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for accomodation in Hobarts waterfront area close to all facilities and mayor tourist attractions.
