“One of the nicest places I've stayed”
Reviewed 3 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Every creature comfort has been thoughtfully catered for in this gorgeous building that been renovated and extended. It is so close to the city with a majority of landmarks within walking distance that we felt we did not need to rent a car. The airport shuttle also stops about 100 metres from the property. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. It is beautiful, clean and cosy and would love to stay again. A big thank you to our hosts.

“Book it!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

I put some research into where to stay in Hobart because I didn't want to stay somewhere boring. I booked the School House for 2 nights with my husband and 9 month old baby and we loved it!! I think they really nailed the blend of old and new. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would love to go back to Hobart just to stay at the School House again. It was just divine.

“Everything we had hoped for”
Reviewed 8 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A great apartment. Fantastic personal touches as it was for a special occasion. Thoughtful appointments, private, comfortable mattresses. Great for kids. We loved our time here, close to everything and great tips on how to enjoy Hobart. We hope to go back soon.

“Understated, comfortable luxury”
Reviewed 28 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The School House is spacious, charming and very classy. We had a beautiful weekend away in Hobart staying here. Rebecca was a very attentive and friendly host who offered advice when we needed it and left us to our own devices otherwise (the perfect combination).
The School House is a truly special place. Its history is apparent in the timber ceilings but the renovation Rebecca has done lifts the place to another level. Polished concrete floors, modern bathroom and kitchenette, beautiful linen and lovely furnishings. There is a fire, a sitting room, a single room and the main, queen bedroom cum studio space.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

“Very comfy accommodation”
Reviewed 11 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Very nice historical but modern accommodation option near Sandy Bay area.Booking process easy with lots of information given by hosts on how to get there and how to enter the property. Accommodation well fitted out, photos match what you experience. Wifi great plus bonus to have Netflix on Smart TV. Lots of little extras as in milk, filter coffee and orange juice, very nice linens and bed/pillows very comfortable. Full sized hairdryer in bathroom and a lovely deep soaking bath.Nice toiletries. Kitchenette very adequate for breakfast and heating up food, dishwasher a nice touch. Parking onsite, easy walking distance to restaurants in Sandy Bay area. A bit of road noise seeped in and the second bedroom did get a bit stuffy overnight. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable stay .
