Amberley House Bed and Breakfast, Tasmania

If you are planning to visit Tasmania, please follow this link to find out about our boutique heritage bed and breakfast accommodation in Hobart.

A note about Bed and Breakfasts in Tasmania: The term “bed and breakfast Tasmania” can mean a lot of different things, from authentic historic boutique accommodation to faux heritage “death by dusty doilies”. Having said that, part of the charm of booking in at a bed and breakfast in Tasmania is the varied nature of this sector of the accommodation business and the possibility that you might chance upon the inspiring getaway of your dreams (and everyone dreams differently).

This is in stark contrast to the “hotel chain” option which might offer greater certainty of outcome but leaves little possibility for that once in a lifetime hosted experience. The aim of this website is to convey to you what we offer to provide under the banner “bed and breakfast Tasmania”.

It is our heartfelt intention to portray here only what you should expect should you be so kind as to come and stay with us. Our philosophy is that time is the most important currency, so if you want to spend your time with us then we want to make sure that you have spent it well. Of course we can’t tell the whole story in print, so if you have any additional concerns or queries then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

At the very least we aim to be the cleanest Bed and Breakfast in Tasmania – indeed the AAA inspectors (who assess properties for their star ratings) always note that “cleaning is of a very high standard”. By the way, at our last inspection (July 7 2006) we were awarded 800 points (4 stars) – just another 30 points and we would be 4 ˝ stars! We “lost” points because we provide breakfast at our formal Georgian dining table rather than at individual tables – but don’t start me on the AAA rating system!



Our Classic Rooms have ensuites, TV, mini-bar, and tea and coffee making facilities.

Amberley House's bed and breakfast accommodation borders Queenborough Park. It is a historic 1890's mansion that is opposite the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, Wrest Point Casino and the Tasmanian Entertainment and Convention Centre. A lovely half hour wander through Battery Point will get you to Salamanca Place.

Boasting views to the harbour and Mt Wellington, Amberley House bed and breakfast offers a range of different room types.

All rooms are beautifully presented with ensuite, mini bar, tea, coffee and TV.

A guest lounge is available in, which to enjoy a complimentary glass of port whilst listening to a wonderful collection of music (CDs), reading a great book or magazine or playing chess.

A hearty continental breakfast is served each morning in the formal dining room incorporating fine Tasmanian produce, home-baked bread and Hobart's best espresso coffee freshly ground from locally roasted beans. Your stay at Amberley House, bed and breakfast accommodation in Tasmania will be the experience you will want to revisit after your first.

Your hosts also produce wines under the highly regarded Empress Vineyard label and there is a strong emphasis upon food and wine appreciation.

A stay at Amberley House is an integral part of the Hobart experience.

Empress Vineyard

Please click below to discover our range of highly regarded boutique cool climate wines from our Victorian vineyard. Click here to find out more about our boutique wines. Please note that our Empress Vineyard is in Victoria, far removed from Amberley House which is our bed and breakfast in Tasmania.

It’s a long story but we moved to Tasmania in 2003 and left our vineyard behind (vineyards are hard to move). However we still produce wines under the Empress Vineyard label and you can find out all about them on this site. Alternatively you can sample them for yourself at Amberley House, our bed and breakfast in Tasmania.
