Altamont House is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great place to stay if you love Hobart. Even distance to either the fun parts of North and West Hobart and the CBD and Docks / Salamanca. Amazing for such a reasonable price. If you are a bit out of shape, you may find the hill a bit of a struggle but that is part of what makes Hobart so great. It's not boring and flat.The house is very private and there is much more room than the photos can show. Seems like it has only very recently been renovated and it felt like we were the first people in there. They have kept plenty of the orignal charm intact and the exposed stone wall in the bathroom is a standout. Absolutley the best shower I have ever used. Would definitley stay again on my next Hobart trip.
