“Beautiful and elegant”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Spacious room, heated bathroom floor, tea, hot water and instant coffee and milk supplied in the room. Minibar available. Free wifi with a strong signal. 20 minute walk to harbor restaurants, other restaurants close by. Room was elegant, spacious, and quiet. The owners were very helpful with suggestions and made restaurant bookings for us prior to our arrival. Breakfast (which was included in our room rate) is really nice with a selection of interesting food, freshly made and served to your table (you choose what you want the night before).

If you are staying a few nights in Hobart, Clydesdale Manor would be hard to beat. This elegant period home is a nice walk from Salamanca and offers the complete experience.
The rooms are beautifully appointed and thoughtfully restored. Lynne and Wayne are warm and welcoming proprietors who generously share knowledge, advice, books, music and food during your stay. In short they spoil you.
Whether you are working or touring, Clydesdale Manor, complete with its gorgeous gardens proves to be a wonderful retreat.

Spent two nights in this beautiful residence within walking distance of Salamanca. Very comfortable and very well appointed with relaxing garden surrounds. The hosts Wayne and Lynne are exceptional with ready advice on things worthwhile seeing, very accurate information on local restaurants, service without pressure and breakfasts that are not only delicious but will happily see you through a days touring.

Room Tip: As far as we could tell there were NO bad rooms. Downstairs with a view of Mt Wellington was the pic...

From the moment we arrived until we left Wayne was very helpful. We felt welcome in their home and for a young couple this was nice as we've had our fair share of bad experiences.

On check-in we were surprised to find ourselves upgraded to a King Room at the front of this grand manor house. Being on a main road in Sandy Bay I was pleasantly surprised to have a quiet sleep thanks to the double glazing. The room pleasantly twisted in modern benefits like under-floor heating and a flat screen TV. The only improvement I could think would be nice if the fireplace could be used separate to the room hearing as in winter this would add heaps of charm to this room.

Breakfast was memorable - coconut pancakes and rhubarb parfait. A few improvements to make this better; have milk jugs available for those who use the coffee plungers as we had to use the cereal milk which mean't I had to keep getting up to add milk to our cups or like another B&B offer us fresh made expresso coffee we liked this touch at another B&B recently. Also you have to order breakfast the night before. This is somewhat common in motels but not in B&B's. For some people like my husband or me during pregnancy you never know what you want until breakfast time, and the lack of unprepared or cooked options was limited. We would have been happy to help ourselves to a few items such as fresh fruit, multiple cereals and yoghurt. The cereals offered were unappealing and more spreads for toast lime at least honey would have made this better for us.

All in all though we found this one of the better B&B's we've stayed in and was perfect location to check out Hobart.

Wayne & Lynne's Clydesdale Manor ticked all the boxes online but this impressive B&B exceeded our expectations from our warm welcome on arrival and through our four day taste of Hobart and surrounds.

Wayne enthusiastically helped us with our luggage to our secluded spa suite (clean, spacious, nicely furnished upstairs room with queen size bed, en suite & balcony) at the rear of the building which overlooks the garden. We also got a guided tour of the 19th century manor. We were particularly impressed with the majestic sitting room (downstairs off the hallway) with the toasty fireplace and the breakfast area, which looks out onto the tranquil garden.

A changing breakfast menu was printed daily with our names on the request form - a small but, we felt, significant personal touch.The breakfasts, made by W&L, were incredible, with a strong focus on using local Tassie ingredients. Over two breakfasts at the manor we had ham & egg parcels, coconut pancakes with fresh fruit & passionfruit sauce, mushrooms on toasted Panini...and my favourite: the scrambled eggs & ham with thick pieces of toast.

Location was also excellent - less than 10 mins walk to Battery Point, 20 min walk to Salamanca & city area and many great local eateries of various cuisines & budgets to choose from within 15 mins walk. There were also a couple of supermarkets within walking distance open until midnight. Clydesdale also made a good base for our daytrips by car to Mt Wellington, Richmond (old bridge), Bonorong Wildlife Park (loads of rescued wildlife including devils), MONA, Cadbury Factory & Port Arthur. Our hosts also suggested some in-between points of interest that we would otherwise have missed.

Definitely would stay again.

Lynne & Wayne were extremely hospitable & friendly. They were always quick to make helpful suggestions for where to eat for example & nothing was too much trouble.
It is a beautiful property externally & the inside decor & furnishings, excellent.
The breakfast was scrumptious!

Room Tip: We had a room upstairs which had a good view & was very spacious.

I stayed for 6 nights in an Upstairs Deluxe Room whilst in Hobart for a conference @ the nearby Wrest Point Hotel.
The location is a convenient 5 min walk to Wrest Point Hotel Complex and about a 20 min walk to Salamanca Markets.
Lynne and Wayne were most helpful and welcoming.Nothing was too much to ask of them.
Advice as to sightseeing , dining and even as to where to buy a nice bottle of Tasmanian Pinot Noir was given in such a friendly manner.
Their heritage B&B was spotlessly clean and so elegantly restored.The garden was beautiful also.
My room was beautifully furnished and had soft wool carpet and a compact but luxurious ensuite bathroom.The complementary toiletries were of a high standard.The towels were soft and fluffy and presented in a beautiful manner.
The breakfast prepared by Wayne was delicious and is worth paying the $20 as a treat.
I would recommend this accommodation to anyone seeking a special indulgence whilst staying in Hobart.
