Nice old building with character. Friendly owner. Breakfast provided. Location was a 10-15 min walk to Salamanca place. No elevator, so be prepared to carry luggages up the stairs. Pleasant stay, good value
This place was really lovely, an historic house with interesting decor that looks like the owner has spent a lifetime traveling and collecting interesting art and artifacts. It's a B&B but the host is very accommodating and lets you help yourself to biccies, fruit, toast, tea etc as you need it at all hours - even has 2 minute noodles at the ready in case you arrive late and have the munchies (or in case nothing is open, as may be the case in different parts of Tassie!). A little note to groups with elderly travelers- there are stairs and no lift. If you or those in your group find stairs challenging, be warned. Even if you get a ground floor room - the shared bathrooms are on the second floor. Great location close to various sights.
nicely decorated, 15 mins walk to the Sat market,”
great choice of breakfast （hot drinks, jam, honey, bread , juice etc） which is available all day long, the owner is really nice and helpful, the walls are a bit thin that you could hear people walking up and downstairs, great experience overall
Awesome, awesome, awesome!”
We had a wonderful time at Edinburgh Gallery Bed & Breakfast. The host, John, is friendly and he made sure that we had a comfortable stay. The breakfast that was provided came with bread, cereals, milk and many types of spread. We occupied the Verandah Suite and it was big enough to accommodate 5 people. The beds were comfortable. Even though it was an ensuite, I used the common toilet and showering rooms which were, by the way, very clean. Strong and reliable Wi-Fi is provided anywhere in the property. A walk from Edinburgh B&B to the city took us 15 minutes. Overall we had an awesome stay!
Large room, clean room, friendly staff,in the city”
This building looks very nice & has the old Victorian architecture. Room was quite big & had a good size bathroom. Greated by Asian fellow who was very friendly & offered us to choose the room front the two rooms available. Room has a heater however not strong enough. But provided plenty of blanket. No hazel about deposite or taking down our details. Room key given & ask us to just leave in the door when leave. Some bathroom fittings & things a bit looks old. They could have made it more nicer with some repairs & preserving the Victorian decor of this building. However it's well worth the money we paid. They said breakfast is available but it just some cereal & bread. No one was there in the kitchen just the staff left(some jams, butter, bread) But we didn't really care about that. Tho place centrally located. Short walk to the harbour & city center. Overall it's ok & be back!^^
The hotel was like a old time gallery and the house was also cool. There are no own showers or toilets in the room but the toilet that was public was newly renovated and very nice. The kitchen is also nice and there are stuff to eat too. The room key had been arranged for me when i arrived in the evening and everything went smooth. Its also pretty close to walk to the salamanca square and bar street from the hotel, just about 10-15 minutes. Location is good. Price was also very decent.
Great value for the money”
For the price we paid, I would say we got a good deal. The place is conveniently located in the city. The room given was clean and comfortable. We arrived a little after 6 in the evening and the reception was closed. But our key was left at the door to our room and there were telephone numbers provided should the need to call arises. The only downside is the problem of security. As the main gate and front door are always unlocked, anyone could just pop in unnoticed.
budget b&b in hobart”
there are only 11 rooms in this b&b which provides you a comfortable & quiet environment to stay overnight. this b&b is situated at the fringe of hobart cbd and it takes just a couple of mins getting there to shop. generally i was happy to stay at this b&b for 3 nights with friends. it will be my first option to stay overnight at hobart when travelling to tasmania next time.
Cosy and authentic bed and breakfast in Hobart.”
Our host John was the absolute highlight of our stay. He was welcoming, friendly and always with a good advice for our day trips and journey in general. The bed and breakfast was charming and excellently located. There was a private parking off the streets. The kitchen was a “help yourself” and very convenient. We had everything needed at our hands and much more. Unfortunately we were placed in the twin suite in the lower floor, which we had overlooked did not have a private bathroom and was poorly isolated both heat wise and sound wise. The traffic from the street outside was disturbing. We upgraded to the family room for 2 nights, and found it very comfortable and charming. We loved it. The shared bathrooms were very clean and easy to access at all times and this was not an issue. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much - thank you John for a lovely stay, we hope your business will thrive in the future.
A very old building”
I booked the family suite but it didn't mention there is no bathroom or toilet or even a sink in the room! I think it is a cheating. The decoration outside the room is strange. You have to check in yourself. No one clean our room or change the towel as we stay here for 2 days. No service.
We have 6 rooms with bathrooms and 4 that share 2 bathrooms down the hall. What facilities each room contains is clearly indicated in all advertising. Please ensure you read what's available before making any bookings. Also be aware that the room was a cheaper price due to having to share the bathroom. Yes this is an old building, it is in fact 108 years old which is part of its historic charm which has attracted visitors from all over the world so they can have a unique Tasmanian experience.
I highly recommend this beautiful building for your next trip. Everything was immaculate. Decorated with love. Cleanliness is top priority with me and this awesome place met my expectations and more. Couldn't be happier. So convenient. I could come and go without any problems and topped off with parking facilities.
Absolutely fantastic accommondation ”
The best hotel ever for me and my husband. The old house makes the hotel so interesting and we stayed there which had home feelings. The hotel owner is very nice and the decorations in the hotel are very special. Nice kitchen and different breakfast choices. Location is in the centre of CBD, so convenient to go shopping. Overall, if you like old fancy style, it is the perfect hotel, strongly recommend.
Luxury in heart of the city ”
The hotel was a piece of art and very homely . The owner was very hospitable and very nice to us. Their dining area was very good and stocked and a great choice. Only issue for us was to use a shared washroom / toilet but then again all three they had were very clean and well maintained .
Convenient location but noisy road”
I have booked the one night stay for my family of 4 as family of 3 by mistake. John who managed the place were quick to arrange for additional bed upon our check-in. Breakfast were served in a common dining area which we get to see other guest staying in the building.
The location is on a busy corridor during the day but quieter during the night. Easy access to touring with on site parking. Continental breakfast at your leasure and own time frame. Met other guests in this relaxed and cozy establishment with wooden floors and staircases.
Charming, relaxed, and friendly B&B ”
I really enjoyed my stay in this lovely B&B. The refurbished Victorian building is beautifully decorated with the host's interesting and eclectic art collection. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and the facilities are squeaky clean. Very close to everything that you need to see on a flying trip to Hobart. I didn't think my single bed room, quite noisy with the window closed, and shared facilities rated as 4 star hotel. Most of the rooms are doubles -some with ensuites(?), so I drew the short straw on the available rooms I guess. However, it was great value accommodation and I would happily return. Very popular spot for all the reasons outlined above and you need to book well ahead.
Homely stay ”
Overall satisfied the purpose for a B&B facility. The toilet is too cold to take a bath as it's windy. The breakfast is basic. There are better hotel with good facility, lower price and in the center of the CBD.
I enjoyed my stay so much. John was very welcoming. His house is so beautiful with his photos and books. The only downside is that the bathroom is too far from our room (like 2 floors). Next time we will book one with private bathroom.
Good location, all amenities, friendly service”
It was only a short stay, but we enjoyed it. John was very helpful & assisted us as required. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of choices for breakfast & well appointed room. I recommend it to anyone requiring a short stay.
Outstanding B&B in Hobart”
My stay at Edinburgh was wonderful, everything was perfect. The location is great, only 1km to Salamanca Markets, a five minute drive to Cascade, and close to many restaurants. The B&B has a nice homely feel to it with a nice kitchen area for guests to meet and there are awesome home made cookies. The room was adequate for the price and I most certainly will stay here again on my next visit to Hobart.
