There’s a very laid back feel to the Edinburgh Gallery, exemplified by the owner joining his guests for breakfast and occasionally pottering about to ensure all is running smoothly (as it always seems to). On the subject of breakfast, this is simple but satisfying and includes some good breads and spreads. Our room was very spacious indeed, with a comfortable...

We arrived late (10:30PM) but the host was still smiling and very nice. There even were cookies and fruits for free if you were willing too! The room was very clean and nicely decorated and the facilities are perfect. Breakfast was good too with varieties in what you could have.

It's a beautiful and well maintained century old building. I booked a family room with attached bathroom. Beds are equipped with electric mattress padding as it can get very cold in the night. Common pantry is well stocked with 3 types of bread, instant noodles, home made jams and beverages (juice, milk, coffee & tea). The owner is a very...

We stayed here 4 nights on our first trip to Tasmania and were happy with our choice to stay here rather than a hotel because of the comfort and convenience of this place. We stayed in room #1 which is on the main floor and has a queen size bed and a twin and a bathroom with a shower bath....

What a little gem in the middle of Hobart. I was a bit worried that Edinburgh Gallery would be awful because it was so cheap but it has all the homely comforts of a really expensive B&B without the high price tag. John was friendly, gave fantastic advice of local activities but best of all he remained good natured when...

The purpose of booking The Edinburgh is to stay in a B&B (and a charming old building) because for us, this kind of accommodation is virtually non-existent in Asia and of course, given the many positive reviews. After doing the Great Circle of Tasmania for 13 nights, we left having a mixed feeling about this property. We booked the Verandah...

Thanks for your comments Jimmy. Of course you arrived the week before the new curtains go up, you know with a 100 year old house there's been many things to do since I took over 2 and a half years ago. As to your price comparisons it's a bit disingenuous to compare prices of regional centres with a place in...

A very comfortable and convenient B&B in an atmospheric 150 year old house. Very clean, spacious and well appointed rooms (we had a family verandah room), yummy breakfast provided. Highly recommended.

We arrived in Hobart without any booking but soon found this gem. Initially planned to stay for three nights with the kids but ended up staying for five. Parked out the back most days and rode our bikes to most places around Hobart although its not far to anywhere if you are on foot. The breakfast room is well set...
