“Convenient for local restaurants”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

There are a large variety of restaurants within walking distance up the hill from The Lodge which is very convenient. If you walk down the hill into town it will take a good 15-20 minutes and a bit longer coming back as it is uphill. There is a large number of seafood places down at the waterfront which does make for great people watching. The lodge has a large communal lounge with complimentary port and sherry as well as tea, coffee, cake slices, biscuits and marshmallows.Our room was clean and comfortable with a very spacious en suite bathroom. We had removable screens across the windows for extra sound proofing which meant the window couldn't be opened unless we asked for the screens to be removed. My husband is a light sleeper and we left the screens on as the street below was noisy early in the night. it was quiet later and i wished we had the screen off to open the window and let some air in. Very pleasant hosts who were happy to chat.

The Lodge could be described as either a large B&B or a small hotel which doesn't provide evening meals. Our room was fine having fridge, tea/coffee making facilities plus TV as expected - the ensuite had a bath with shower over. They provide an above average continental breakfast (by Australian standards) and a guest lounge with complimentary tea/coffee and sometimes cake !. The hosts are friendly but not intrusive. It's about a 15 minute walk downhill to the harbour or 10 minutes uphill to a number of restaurants. The on-street parking (free permit provided) is no problem at all. We would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous garden, full of agapanthus. Beautiful old house, an historic house in Hobart. Rooms a bit quirky in a nice way as they are all remodelled from the original old house. Our room had spa bath, little balcony onto the garden and a large brass bed. Good continental breakfast, street parking with a hotel permit. Guest laundry with outside drying. All very saftisfactory. Good walking distance from town , although coming home is uphill! Works off the holiday meals. We loved it.

Room Tip: ask for a garden room

Adequate rooms and breakfast. Nothing fancy. About eight blocks from Wharf. Sporadic WiFi.

The buildings and gardens are beautiful and well-kept, and the Convict Cottage was cosy and sweet. The staff are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The home-made goodies and complimentary port in the guest lounge were welcome surprises. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Convict cottage is cosy and private.

Hobart was good and the lodge was a pleasant place to be while there. A little bit of a walk to town but not so far as to be a problem even with a bit of shopping. Garden is nice, room is spacious.

Reviewed 10 November 2011

I recently stayed in the Lodge on Elizabeth, a lovely old building turned into a B&B. The location is some 10-15 minutes downhill walk to the Marina. My room was small but very comfortable, the bathroom a bit on a small size (I guess this is the norm for single rooms) but overall the stay was very pleasant. Lynn and Graeme were nice hosts and very helpful when it came to tips for sightseeing or even organising/booking. There is laundry room available and internet in house for a one-off fee of $5 for the whole stay, an unbelievable price. This came very handy as it was during the Qantas strike so I used the internet often to check on the flight situation.
The living room is beautiful, guests can help themselves to coffee/tea and cakes in the afternoon and port in the evening.
There is a lovely garden in the courtyard.
