When staying in Hobart the best place to be is Caretakers Cottage in the grounds of Werndee. Such a warm welcome special treats Galore a glimpse into history who could wish for more?
Patricia, Graeme & Celia

A good house to stay in for a few days ( or longer) with privacy, a comfy bed, all facilities you might need ( and we like to cook) and hosts who are there without being in your face but friendly at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble. A good walk into Hobart and we will do that next time but catch the bus back. Close enough to coffee shops and indeed all you might need in North Hobart. We will return.Peter & Susan Lendon

Thank you for the wonderful stay in the Caretaker Cottage every creative comfort we could ever want or need. The small touches were a win here & the stand out in all of our stays across the country.

This was a fantastic place to stay- very roomy, clean and the hosts were fantastic. Thanks it was a great place to stay – recommend to any one.

Location of accommodation was excellent for people wanting to use Hobart as a base. Great access to restaurants and the city sights. Hosts were very attentive to our needs and we felt very welcome and comfortable in this accommodation. Good value for money.

Last time we stayed in Hobart we chose a mid-city location. It was ghastly. We wanted to find somewhere quiet original & comfortable on this visit & we hit the jackpot. Thanks for providing a wonderfully relaxing & warm environment.
