Excellent property, great location & lovely host!

We had such a wonderful 3 night stay at Altamont House, the location was perfect and the property was beautiful!

We were so expressed by the effort put in by Nikky to make our stay relaxing, by bringing down fresh bread, re stocking the fire wood and doing our breakfast dishes.

I Would highly recommend Altamont House and we will definitely be back!

Thank you Nicky!

We just loved our stay at Altamont House, from the start Nicky made it really easy for us to check in, and once we entered the house we absolutely fell in love with it. The toilet was stunning with rain shower and an amazing bathtub, and the bedroom was so luxurious, comfortable and welcoming. Nicky was very attentive to all the small details, including everything we needed for the stay, making our stay here more than just any accommodation, but making us feel at home and pampered, it was just perfect. A definite place for anyone to drop by if passing through Hobart. We will be back certainly!

After time spent travelling in Tasmania, Hobart was our last stop and Altamont House was an incredibly special place to stay. The apartment is beautifully decorated, comfortable, warm and well-equipped. The hosts were welcoming but not obtrusive, generous with yummy breakfast provisions and clearly took much pride in Altamont House. Nicki was understanding when we were out of range for a few days before our stay and flexible with our confirmation of arrival time on the day we were due to arrive. We'll be coming back to Hobart because there is sooooo much to do and see, and we'll definitely look forward to staying at Altamont House again.
