Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Edinburgh Gallery is a beautiful, quaint building with lots of history. The building is old, but is super clean. In fact, one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed.

John, the host, is delightful - welcoming, lovely to talk to and very helpful.

Our room came with everything we needed - towels, shampoo/soap, coffee and tea facilities, bar fridge, and a hair dryer, as well as heating, fan, and tv/DVD player.

Breakfast offers a great selection of cereals, breads and a variety of condiments as well as milk and juices. Fresh fruit is available to eat any time.

The B&B is a short downhill stroll to Salamanca Markets/MONA Ferry etc - about 10mins.

Very enjoyable stay, and we will be returning on our next trip to Hobart.

I had a lovely stay here. John, the owner, is very welcoming and helpful. There is a well stocked kitchen that guests are free to use and includes breakfast and fresh cookies. All beds are equipped with electric blankets, and there are DVDs that guests can borrow. The accommodation is walking distance to the waterfront, the city, the botanical gardens, and more. Thanks for a great stay!

I really do not like ever to give a less than great review, but I am afraid noise is bothersome for me. The building is on a very busy corner - Macquarie Street and Molle St in Hobart. All day and night there is noise from traffic and from the pedestrian lights on the corner. I imagine the only thing the host could do is to install double glazing on the windows to mute the traffic din.
The beds were very comfortable, there was a continental breakfast provided - serve yourself and one could eat as much as was desired. There is no lift and stairs sre a necessity so for a disabled person it would be very difficult to navigate. Parking is good however, which is a big plus in Hobart and the location is close to everything.

The owner (John) is so friendly and has the most outstanding excellent customer service. He makes you feel so much at home. He makes sure you have what you need and if times are tough he will help you for all your accommodation needs. Stay here, parking is behind the house off street. A 10 minute walk to the hospital or couple blocks away from city cbd. Support small family business with free off street parking and breakfast included. Fresh made coffee as well in the morning. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough! Thank you John for making me feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. (Also has some wonderful books you can swap too)

John was welcoming and friendly
The room was pretty spacious and clean with and old world feel. Bed was very comfy with nice quality linen and perfect mattress.
It was a chilly time of year but the heaters kept up and room was comfortably warm
We did get some road noise as the building in on a busy road but nevertheless we would definitely stay here again.

The location was good for easy walk into Hobart and the harbour area also Cascades Brewery and The Female Factory. The road junction outside was noisy but did settle down later on. Breakfast was toast and cereal which seemed basic, you helped yourself to and then cleared up. Not quite what we'd expect from a b and b. We felt it was all a bit shabby and dated , however John our host was very friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed a two night stay here in June. Our spacious room was conveniently located on the ground floor on the Molle Street side. Although the weather was quite cold, we were warm and cosy with an in-room heater and electric blanket. We liked the quaint ambiance of the historic building and the interesting furniture and decor. The bathroom was old but functional and very clean.

Breakfast was well catered for with an extensive range of cereals, breads, spreads, milk and juices available to serve ourselves in the breakfast room. There are also facilities to heat and serve your own food.

John is an excellent host and obviously prepared to go the extra mile as he had to wait up late one night for some guests who hadn't arrived at the expected time.

Our only problem was the traffic noise from the intersection of Macquarie and Molle Streets. This continued until fairly late and night and started early in the morning. Other than that, a perfect stay.

This might not be for everyone, but we loved the charm of the over 100 year old home. Our host let us eat and make coffee when we wanted. There was lots of food items including fresh fruit from his trees. It is a short walk to the center of town. I would say the worst part was the house is on a busy street but we didn't hear much noise which was nice. We had a nice stay and would return.

I enjoyed my stay here. The host, John, was very welcoming and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the place was clean. The breakfast was great for this type of place. There was a little traffic noise until about 10.30pm, but that's what you get from being in the city in an old building (old hospital apparently). I would stay again and recommend staying here. 😊

Answer from John W
Being a town of only 200,000 people the road quietens down at night but is busy in the day we are in the middle of town, There is a bus stop outside but it is only a 10 minute walk to the heart of the CBD and the waterfront. The airport shuttle will drop you right to the door, cheers John

The room we had was on the ground floor as you walk in from the front door. It was twin share with private bathroom. From the back door car park, it was up one flight of stairs. John will be able to help with your question too. Just use the contact form on his website.
