Apart from a loose tap, a flooding bathroom, a dirty window sill and a musty room, we could give you twenty reasons why this is not luxury accomodation and definitely not worth the exorbitant room rate. These were the issues with room 2:- Poor bathroom lighting with no mirror light. No shower gel. No bathroom 'extras' cotton buds etc etc...

This house is really imposing. We stayed in suite 1 on the ground floor and traffic noise from Sandy Bay Road made sleep difficult. We would stay here again but would choose a room at the back. When we arrived neither the central or mirror lights in the bathroom were working. Staff are only on-site in the mornings so we...

Good size nice clean rooms. Friendly staff and a good breakfast. The free port and fudge is a lovely touch. We would definitely stay here again. Communication was good. We had an email sent to us with all the necessary details and even a phone call the day before we stayed there to check we had received the email.

We stayed in Room 4 for two nights while exploring Hobart. Beautiful large room and bathroom with a fabulous spa, and large bay windows (to see sunrise)! Very convenient to walk to Salamanca markets, nearby restaurants and ferry terminal to MONA. Friendly staff. Definitely recommend.

We loved our two nights at Gattonside, a large, beautifully restored Victorian home within a few blocks walk of the Salamanca District. We were upgraded to a big room on the ground floor with sofa, leather-topped desk, spa tub and ceiling heat in the bathroom. The bed was wonderfully comfy and the breakfast, cereal with fruit plus eggs (cooked our...

Heritage B&B in a central location to Battery Point and Salamanca. Off street parking, lovely spacious room, spa bath and just 10 minutes stroll to Salamanca and great restaurants. Lovely cooked breakfast. Perfect. Highly recommended.
