“Best B&B we've stayed at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We had a long weekend planned to Hobart in autumn and chose this lovely B&B because it was close to everything we wanted to experience. It was the best place for us in that regard as we opted to be located within easy walking distance and did not want to hire a car. We were not disappointed with its location to Salamanca area and Battery Point etc. The Heritage Gattonside B&B is superb and we loved Suite 1 which is also shown on their promotional site; it was luxury and so comfortable. The staff were simply wonderful esp. Lil who could not do enough to make sure our stay was stress-free and arranging some of our transport needs. Annie in the kitchen made sure we had our bodies fuel-readied for the days activities with a wholesome breakfast. Next time we go to Hobart again, we'll be returning to this lovely place and people to reconnect.

Room Tip: Wi-Fi is free and was a little slow but we only needed it infrequently so no real issue for us.

Dear AlfaRomeoSpider76,

What a lovely review - thank you! I'm thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us at Gattonside. Thank you for your kind words about Lil and Annie our chef - they really enjoy what they do and take a lot of pride in ensuring our guests have exception stays. Please be assured that your comments have been passed on.

Sorry about the speed of the Wi-Fi - we've since improved the booster and we've found that all areas of the property have really fast access. I do appreciate you bringing this to my attention.

Thank you again, and we do hope to see you back at Gattonside next time you visit Hobart.

Kind regards,

Kat and the Gattonside Team

No disappointments. Nice neighborhood and the home has an attractive exterior. Warm public spaces and large comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. Sherry and chocolates available in the evening. Simply an excellent 2 night stay. Highly recommend.

Stayed 3 nights in April 2014 and found Gattonside to be excellent. Not only is it a stately building with large, well appointed rooms and friendly, helpful staff it is also located within easy walking distance of Salamanca Place and Hobart city. Although located on busy Sandy Bay Road it is quiet with no obvious traffic noise. The delicious cooked breakfasts were an added bonus to a very pleasant stay. Well worth considering this type of accommodation rather than a large impersonal hotel.

Lets get the basics said: Really comfy bed, dark room at night, terrific varied breakfasts, beautiful historic house and a great location in Hobart. But you can get this at lots of places. What Gattonside has is the extra mile! Courtesy, which began before we arrived with calls and emails of help, and extended for every day of our 6 days stay. We were in Hobart for Anzac day and my returned serviceman husband was accorded the honour and respect which makes a Vietnam Vet feel rewarded for his service. We laughed and talked with staff who were beyond helpful in pointing us in the right direction. Our sleep-ins were respected and any special need was catered for. We had an amazing stay in Hobart and Gattonside was the heart of this experience. Lily, Annie and Team you deserve 5 stars... You made our stay. We will tell all our friends and certainly be back.

Room Tip: We had a downstairs room which saved carrying bags upstairs

Our room and bath were unusually large and elegantly decorated. The breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed walking around the historic neighborhood. Staff helped us do laundry and recommended a great restaurant.

We stayed four nights in the honeymoon suite and had a great time. The bed was comfortable and nice large room and large bathroom on the second floor. Breakfast was really good every day and you can walk to Salamanca place and even the botanic gardens tho that's a bit farther. Highly recommend this beautiful place. Nice salon with free port and fudge for afternoon tea and relaxing. So much nicer than a hotel!

Gattonside was a wonderful place to stay in Hobart. Position was perfect being within walking distance of cafes, restaurants, market and the water. Accommodation was very comfortable with relaxing atmosphere and several personal touches. We were well looked after by the delightful Lili ,always available to give good information and advice.. Breakfasts were cooked each morning by Annie and they were delicious and varied . I would recommend this B&B if you are looking for a quality place with the personal touch
