Upon arrival we were greeted by a strong chemical smell and despite the spacious rooms & lovely furnishings we did not stay more than an hour. You can't open windows at night while sleeping without compromising security. I couldn't stay closed up in my room with that smell. It is dark without the lights on even during the day and... More

This was an unfortunate circumstance for us all as the smell has not been reported by any previous guests. I did refund 50% of the reservation. To read other reviews from guests that stayed before and after this guest please go to www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/5353814 More

Altamont House is a beautiful historical property in a good location, just out of central Hobart. From the outside the house is gracious with her old world charm and lace work around the veranda, however upon entering the premises you meet modern contemporary living, mixed with a few antiques here and there. The host (Nicky) and her family live on... More

We spent two nights here at the end of our trip to Tasmania. Although it's called a B&B you in effect have the bottom floor of a huge old house, with oversized living / dining area, huge bedroom and a bathroom with freestanding bath and monsoon shower. See photos for better idea. The breakfast was provided in the dining area... More

This is beautiful B&B in a fantastic location with a great view. Look no further for a large, historical and well appointed B&B. The communication with Nicky was first class as was the presentation of our room/s. So much room for the 3 of us.

I wuold have stayed at Altamont House for two weeks if I could have! The B&B is set downstairs of a beautiful old house and it is huge- large lounge area with TV, couches, and dining table. The bedroom felt almost bigger than the lounge area and the bathroom was large with a big shower and freestanding bath. The property... More

Gorgeous! The room is spacious and comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had a perfect stay- 5 days of perfection. The log fire in the living area was a real highlight as was the stunningly beautiful bathroom. The bed is comfortable and loads of extra pillows and blankets if needed. The hosts are lovely. The driveway is not really for the... More

My husband & I stayed overnight recently in this cozy abode in residential Hobart and for the second time, really enjoyed it. The accomodation is located on a San Fransisco style street ( it's super steep!) a few minutes from the CBD and the Salamanca waterfront area. There is a private little driveway that leads you to what is essentially... More

My husband and I stayed in the luxury suite for 1 night during our honeymoon. The house is located on a steep hill and set off from the street so we had a little difficulty finding the place. Parking is also a bit tricky as the driveway is small and you need to maneuver your car onto 2 metal ramps... More
