We are located one street away from the main street to the city , Elizabeth St. There is a very frequent bus service from the city via Elizabeth St.

From the airport by car , take the Brooker Hwy north towards Glenorchy , turn left at the Federal St exit. At the second set of traffic lights turn right up Elizabeth St then left at the next set of traffic lights in to Augusta Rd. Mortimer Ave is the first on the left and our driveway is first on the right up a long drive to the turreted Werndee mansion.

We can be available to pass over the key to the cottage with prior arrangement.

Fantastic place to stay, will be returning. Cozy, quiet, central to restaurants.5/5 by ,
The house is a very gracious high Victorianmansion and our room was in keeping. The area has become very convenient for travellers, with multiple cuisines as well as all the other requirements available in the cosmopolitan shopping strip just down Elizabeth Street. And the owners are most welcoming and obliging. We were glad to have missed out on Sandy Bay!4/5 by ,
A good house to stay in for a few days ( or longer) with privacy, a comfy bed, all facilities you might need ( and we like to cook) and hosts who are there without being in your face but friendly at the same time. Nothing was too much trouble. A good walk into Hobart and we will do that next time but catch the bus back. Close enough to coffee shops and indeed all you might need in North Hobart. We will return.5/5 by ,

Werndee was well located and a peaceful haven. A beautifully presented heritage home and we were delighted to have a personal tour. We had both cottages booked for our family and everyone had all the comforts of home plus little thoughtful touches made it extra special. Robyn and Jan are very warm and generous hosts. We are looking forward to visiting again.5/5 by , QLD
