    Guestbook

    This was a return visit for us to this property. Set in the most superb position in historic Battery Point, Hobart it actually surpasses the description given by the owners. The rooms have the most spectacular views over the harbour and surrounds and there is always something of interest happening on the water. Rooms are sunny, large, luxurious and immaculate. Breakfast in your room is available and can be eaten looking out over the water.

    The charming hosts are discreet but always available to help out with great suggestions of places to visit and good eateries. The local area is excellent for walking and sightseeing and enjoying the ambience of this expensive and historic bayside suburb. The city of Hobart is delightful with many historic places of interest and a short drive to the many tourist attractions offered in Tasmania.

    The team at IVHE were,as usual, very helpful. In fact, they alerted me to the Prime Time available at this property. Requests were promptly handled and the trade agreement settled quickly. We're thankful for their excellent support.

    Grandvue would have to be Hobart's best kept secret. We look forward to going back again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the lovely Grande View Historic Hotel.  Everything was perfect from the warm welcome, the spacious and tastefully furnished bedroom, and the huge and luxurious bathroom. 

    Breakfast was very good value with lovely products and special bread from the local bakery.  There was plenty for two mornings. 

    Annette also baked delicious cakes or biscuits for her guests each day, and they were an absolute treat. 

    We were able to walk into Battery Point each day as it is only a short walk from the hotel, and we also enjoyed meals at the nearby restaurants, bakery and Inn. 

     

    Thank you to Annette and John for a fantastic few days. We hope to return!

     

    Thank you also to IVHE for the smooth arrangement of this exchange.

    This is a charming, quiet private hotel in a magnificently restored grand house. The rooms are large and luxurious and have wonderful views of the water.

    It is in the best location in Hobart, walking distance to the water, the CBD, markets and cafes.

    We have been several times and will be going back. A great place.
