“Charming, cosy, attention to detail.”
Reviewed 7 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The School House is beautifully renovated with sympathy to the original historic building and stylishly dressed with attention to detail regarding comfort and facilities.

The real fire was a big draw card for us in May when it was chilly in the evenings. We were also pleasantly surprised to find up to date audio and video entertainment systems, and USB chargers for our devices. The furnishings were of a high standard and extremely comfortable, the bed linen was especially comfortable.

The location was superb- on an elegant street just a short walk to Salamanca and the ferry to MONA. We found the kitchenette was sufficient for our requirements as we wanted to take advantage of the local cuisine by eating out. We would also recommend the nearby 9/11 wine shop for helpful service and a great range of drinks to enjoy in front of the fire at School House.

Rebecca and Dermot were extremely helpful and easy to reach when we needed them. Check-in was quick and simple. We had complete privacy during our stay.
We would definitely recommend the schoolhouse to all our friends and family.

“chic modern design and comfort meets historical charm”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

THe old school house was a gorgeous fusion of ultra modern design and comfort effortlessly blended with all the charm of one of Hobart's old homes. Located in a wide tree lined street the location is close to all the usual tourist spots but a wonderful retreat when you just need to wam yourself with a myriad of heating choices or stretch out on the king size bed. Lots of room to spread out and enjoy yourself.

“Exactly what we were looking for - A home away from home”
Reviewed 2 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We visited to Hobart in March for a short break. Apartment is clean and well appointed with all modern amenities. All spaces are well arranged and tastefully furnished. Location is with in short stroll away from shops and attractions. 20 minutes to Constitution dock and Salamanca Market, 15 minutes to Battery Point and 10 minutes away from Sandy Bay shops and restaurants. Rebecca (the owner) was prompt and has been very helpful. We thank for our pleasant stay.
