A welcome return

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Oct 2019
We have stayed at the Lodge 5 years ago and the service Jeff and Julie provide is still outstanding. Jeff has a lovely warm manner and is very accommodating when you are a guest. The garden is beautiful and the rooms spacious and comfortable. This is a great location for the restaurant strip in North Hobart and an easy walk (if you have reasonable fitness) to down town. There is a bit of a hill on the way back but the cab fare on a Saturday night is under $10. We will definately return to enjoy Jeff and Julie's hospitality when back in Hobart next. Thank you

This is a truly lovely period home in North Hobart. A 20 minute walk to the harbour or a five minute walk the other way to a great collection of bars and restaurants on Elizabeth Street. The hotel rooms are very comfortable. There is complementary tea and coffee in the room and also in the sitting room where you can enjoy a glass of the local port as well. The hosts are brilliant - very welcoming, informative and helpful. I highly recommend this lovely hotel.

Thank you Jeff for making my stay comfortable and relaxing, yet again. The rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. Everything was perfect which makes it a pleasure to be able to stay. I'm sorry I didn't get to say good bye Jeff, but all going well for me I will see you again before Christmas. Keep up the good work, thank you. Bev

Room tip: I just ask for my favourite, but they are all lovely and comfortable

Stayed 4 nights in a spa room. Loved the attention to detail making my stay an absolute pleasure. My room was warm as toast and had an electric blanket. While it is a challenge to provide contemporary facilities in an 1830's building, the Lodge achieves this. The guest lounge across the hallway was the perfect place to relax with loads of books and facilities. The continental breakfast was top class with loads of extras. I felt more like a guest in someone's home. I would definitely stay there again. The Lodge is a good 25 minute walk from the harbor front. There is a brilliant range of restaurants just a block away.

Room tip: A more expensive room is great value. My spa room was on the main floor and adjacent to the garden, the lounge and the breakfast room.

This is a beautiful place to stay, I couldn’t fault anything. Jeff, the owner was incredibly helpful and there were lots of lovely little touches that made our stay perfect. Highly recommend The Lodge, really convenient location too.

Why I keep going back….

The old-world tranquility of the historic Lodge on Elizabeth inclines anyone to relax in the garden with its tinkling fountain, or the cosy guest lounge with complementary port tea/coffee and biscuits, or on the sunny front verandah.

Just outside the side door—the front door opens onto steep steps—is Elizabeth Street. Uphill, beats the bohemian heart of North Hobart and downhill, is the staider Mid Town, with the city centre not too far walking or by bus. The shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, izakaya’s (there’s two), a theatre, a clairvoyant, and Australia’s oldest knife shop, are interesting, and finding somewhere to eat is a real pleasure.

The comfortable and spotless accommodations, are furnished in Victorian style. The best rooms are 3, 9 and 12. For those who like fewer frills, rooms 4 and 5 will please.

All rooms have a bathroom with a selection of bath essentials, including makeup remover, a shower cap and hair dryer. The larger rooms have spa baths in the bathroom.

The continental breakfast includes assorted cereals and breads, teas, fresh brewed coffee, cold ham and cheese, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit salad, fruit, yoghurt, and jams, honey etc. Gluten free is available on request.

You can also buy wine by the bottle (not necessarily for breakfast).

After another agreeable stay, as Jeff and Julie waved me goodbye at the side door, the taxi driver unasked, said: ‘They are the best hosts in Hobart’.

That’s why I keep going back. The hospitality is genuine, nothing is too much trouble, and the place ticks along like clockwork.

Room tip: The best rooms are given in the review.
