Our group of 6 stayed at this gorgeous B&B over the weekend and fell in love with the place. The rooms are spacious and extremely well-appointed, the breakfast was substantial and our hosts, Skye and the team, could not have been more accommodating to our every need. This is a terrific place to stay, close to all major Hobart attractions....

We were extremely impressed by Gattonside - it's staff are helpful and friendly - there was no problem booking in well before the official time - the accommodation is great, large bedroom and a bathroom large enough to hols-in which to hold a party! Things do look a little tired in one or two places but the overall impression is...

We had a lovely stay at the Gattonside Heritage. A lovely large bedroom on the ground floor. The traffic noise was a concern, but it didn't wake us up at all. The location gave us easy access to Salamanca Market and restaurants, the B&B was City Central. The breakfast was fantastic, though here was no choice from a menu selection....

Five minutes from Salamanca and the 'Blue eye' restaurant in a lovely restored mansion with a silent room. Lounge and breakfast rooms are very stylish, and the food was good. Truly attentional personnel, and then we had some long discussions with Christine. We tasted her red wine, which was very good, but as she was not there the last morning...

Had a fabulous stay at gattonside. Enjoyed the amazing breakfasts very much, and our host Chrissie Richardson provided us with some excellent suggestions for our trip to to Derwent Valley. The location allowed for lots of walking to restaurants, into the city itself, sightseeing wonderful old buildings. The room was beautifully appointed, bathroom large and we had internet connection when...

I expect attention to detail when paying for a 'premium' stay. The room was small and rather down at heel. Wifi so slow as to be useless, a fact acknowledged when complained about, the part-time manager didn't have the correct dates for our stay, dying flowers in the bathroom,stains on the carpet,odd broken hooks(?) on the back of the door,...

Don't bother trying to get in before 2pm, this is a self-service 'boutique' B&B. The 'manager' sits in a little office behind the residence, so you'll have to rely upon other guests to show you around when you arrive. The comment "Hey, are you trying to take my job?" was beyond ironic. The room we're paying $250+ per night for...

Dear Peter, Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions of Gattonside Heritage Accommodation with the online TripAdvisor community. I was terribly sorry to read that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. The Battery Point area is currently undergoing the installation and roll out of the NBN. Due to this, there has been some interruption...

We stayed at this B&B for three nights. Our room was exactly as pictured but somehow was actually even better than the pictures. It was clean, spacious, and comfortable. There was a fresh bouquet of roses that smelled amazing to welcome our arrival. Our bathroom was very large, and we were both able to soak in the tub while watching...

From the moment you contact the Redawning Group, which manages Gattonside, your experience is made easy. Redawning understands that once basic contact details have been provided and payment made it knows enough. Hence you can arrive at Gattonside when convenient, enter the assigned code to the external door and find your room. Too easy!! Our room felt exceptional; bright, beautifully...

Everything about this wonderful property made us think how wonderful it must have been before "brand" hotel chains! Staff were welcoming and could not have done more, location was ideal and the price was surprising and great value. The room was beautiful and maintained in exactly the way you would imagine it would have been 100 years ago (with all...
