Going on previous Trip Advisor reviews, we were, perhaps, expecting too much. Biggest gripe of all was the breakfast. Come on, the clue is in the name, it's a B&B so don't charge me extra for breakfast on top of the generous room charge and don't charge me $19 per main dish! Breakfast was available for a whole, generous 45 mins so if the guests want it outside that time, tough! I don't know what I might want to eat 12 hours in advance and even before I go out for dinner the night before so please don't expect me to be enthusiastic about the complicated questionnaire. On 2 out of 3 occasions we just couldn't be bothered and ate breakfast elsewhere. And then one is expected to make one's own drink (stale, mean portions of coffee in cafetieres) and toast. Where was the marmalade and local honey?
The welcome on arrival was luke-warm rather than effusive; the room was large and the double glazing kept out the traffic noise (we were at the front of the house) but why was there no desk and chair; why was there no decent mirror and somewhere to use a hairdryer other than the poorly lit little bathroom (so one of us had to wait for bathroom time while the other hogged the space); and why, oh why, did the bedside lights have black shades? In order to read in bed, one had to turn on the overhead chandelier. And the posts of the 4-poster blocked the view of the TV.

We stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed this beautiful B and B. Our room was the ground floor spa room with access to the back garden with table and chairs on a porch area. The room was spotless and had everything that we needed for a relaxing stay. Wayne and Lynne were lovely hosts & gave us ideas for day trips, eateries etc.
Walking distance to Casino and Sandy Bay shops, cafes and restaurants and a short drive into Hobart, Battery Point and the dock area. If in Hobart again this would be the place to stay!!!

We stayed at the Clydesdale Manor for 3 nights. We had stayed at the Quest Waterfront last night and it was amazing to come to the hospitalty of the Clydesdale Manor. Our room on the groundfloor was huge with a fireplace, plasme TV and the bathroom even had heated floor. The continental breakfast was made from organic and local produce and was delicious. Wayne and Lynne's hospitalty was great and made us feel right at home. Would come back for sure!

A beautiful property. Gardens are lush, interiors are clean and comfortable.

A great management team. The host checked with us if we made dinner plans upon our arrival (as it was a weekend), and offered to make reservations for us. He also called us to inform us that our room was ready, so that we could make the most of the day.

Thoughtful decor. Someone actually thought about where to put things so that visiting guest wouldn't hurt toes, clamp fingers, etc. Also there was a sign to offer fresh milk for your hot beverages if you pleased.

Free parking on-site. Coffee / tea facilities in room. Mini-fridge in room. Bright and clean.

Would certainly stay again.

Wayne and Lynne make every moment at Clydesdale Manor feel special. From the warm welcome and glass of bubbly upon arrival to the gentle suggestions for day trips or local restaurant options they are the ultimate hosts. The house is delightful with parquetry floors and edwardian sideboards. Our room was spacious and spotless! We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights and would not dream of staying anywhere else when in Hobart!

Encouraged by the reviews on this site we booked a couple of nights for our first visit to Hobart. Booking was smooth and Wayne even emailed to see if we needed help with restaurant reservations - we took him up and had a very pleasant dinner at Maldini's. Cyldesdale Manor is a classic B&B style operation but real quality. The bedroom we had on the ground floor was spacious and very comfortable, the bathroom is modern and the underfloor heating a bonus. If being critical, the lighting for the mrror could have been better, but apart from that we had nothing to fault.. You have to try Wayne's breakfast - it's excellent and set us up for our day trip to Port Arthur. Clydesdale's location is 5 minutes by car from the Hobart Waterfront and shops are in walking distance if you need anything. Tip for the Salamanca market on Saturdays, use the CSIRO car-park which is about 3 or 4 minutes walk away from the market and it's free with no time restrictions. Wayne and Lynne were very helpful with tips on sightseeing and in general were super, friendly hosts.
