This was our second visit to Hobart and this time we decided to stay at the Manor House and despite being out of the main CBD district this proved to be a winner. It is a 20 minute walk to the harbour but it is all downhill and quite enjoyable. We visited a very nice coffee shop Patanella (Little Potato)...

Rooms are comfy, but in need of maintenance and repair. Prices are fantastic for a family. Good parking facilities and having a restaurant on site is convenient. We often stay here when in Hobart and enjoy our stay.

Our first time staying at this particular Rydges. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - in particular Jen the assistant manager. On arrival we were told that we had been upgraded but on reaching the room it was extremely old, a bit rambly and furnished in a very out of date way and I don't mean the antique style...
