We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Amberley House which we thoroughly enjoyed. The location is fantastic across the road from Wrest Point and easy 20 minute walk to Battery Point & Salamanca. The B&B is very cosy and all rooms are private and own ensuite. Easy access with the key or code pad, come and go as you please. Tina presents a wonderful continental breakfast in the front dining room, with cereals, fruit, multiple choice of breads, yoghurt, juice and tea/coffee. Wonderful stay and would definitely return

Harrowing Experience, hopefully a once off from normal standards”

We booked what we thought would be a nice guest house for our family visit to Hobart. On arrival the room was smaller than we anticipated but we accepted it as an older house turned into guest house that it would be "quirky". It was about 8.30pm when we arrived, there is no reception, keys are set in mail boxes inside the house after you use a pass code to enter. This was not unusual, we have experienced this at other apartment and guest houses we have stayed in Australia. There are no service staff except for a couple of hours in the morning, after hours you must call a service number to get assistance. We first called to get advice on how to use the heaters because I get cold easily, they explained the way their system works with thermostats etc so we followed their advice on this. About half an hour later I was preparing for sleeping by having my shower (in a very tiny shower cubicle, I am tall and thin and I was not comfortable in this small shower room). I noticed that the waste basket was not emptied and had various "sanitary" items in it. This was not acceptable to me so I asked my husband to call the service line and let them know that we were not happy about this. When he informed them about this incident they questioned if it was true and informed him it had never happened before in 10 years of being serviced by the same lady. My husband asked them if they were suggesting he made it up and he was lying? they immediately became defensive and started being aggressive towards my husband. He did not accept this and informed them that we would not continue our stay after that night but would leave the next morning. All they had to say was "we are sorry for the inconvenience, could we have someone come by to correct it for you" and it would have ended the matter, but instead they behaved very inappropriately for people in hospitality. They did try to call back my husband, but it was late at night and he was not amenable to taking their call. Apparently this i
