William Walker House - history and charm

Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

This spacious, elegant and comfortable sandstone house circa 1880 is in the heart of a friendly neighbourhood, West Hobart. There is plenty of room for groups up to 6 people. Enjoy the views from the veranda while the kids play XBOX, or cook in the large country kitchen. A very short stroll to the renown Hill St grocer, Smolt kitchen, cafes, local butcher, playground, Post Office shop and laundromat. It is a 20 minute stroll to either the city centre or the North Hobart restaurant strip. Just up the hill is Mt. Knocklofty reserve with lots of walking tracks and lovely city views.

There are bus stops on our street, just 50 m away. Plenty of street parking is available.

William Walker House is the bottom floor of the house.

Loved this property. Very clean and outfitted with comfortable and quality beds, blankets and linens. Extra touches like milk in the fridge and the coffee machine with coffee pods as well as walking in to a warm house after a chilly day made our stay very comfortable. Enjoyed reading about the history of the house and looking at the lovely view. A great location in a quiet street with lots of amenities within walking distance. Would definitely stay again!

Historic and Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible and historic home. Sylvia was kind enough to leave out information packs regarding the history of the property and its original owner as well as plenty of information and brochures about the local shops/cafes/tours etc

The kitchen was well stocked with tea and coffee and milk which was a thoughtful touch. The bedrooms were genuinely huge and there was no need for electric blankets as they were well heated and the bedlinen was of highest quality. The wonderful cafe and shopping precinct of Elizabeth St North Hobart was within easy walking distance where there is literally every cuisine to choose from and many gorgeous and eclectic shopping options and a cinema. There is a bus stop literally a stones throw away and even though the parking was on street we never had a problem getting a car park right out the front. I can highly recommend William Walker house as a comfortable and unique stay in Hobart that is excellent value for money. Geri

Fantastic, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at William Walker Cottage - we really appreciated all the little details. Very comfortable and clean for our family of 5 and very close to the CBD at sight of Hobart. Beds were lovely and the house was very warm. We'll be back!
