Our room was large enough to feel roomy despite the king size bed and the en suite was larger than...

We are still at the Elms of Hobart but I can confidently write a review, knowing it to be correct or maybe understated. Tina is an excellent hostess who will certainly ensure your stay is a pleasant one. The room is wonderful, with a full size bathroom and spa. The building was constructed in 1917 and still maintains the quality...
