Mayfair Motel on Cavell

17 - 19 Cavell Street Hobart Australia


When Sir Eccles Snowdon was Lord Mayor of Hobart, he lived in this large and comfortable home in the hilly old suburb of West Hobart - nearly every time you turn a corner there's a view of Mount Wellington, the city or the great Derwent estuary. The twin front gables and cheery red-tiled roof of Sir Eccless old home welcome you to a small, quiet motel with self-contained units. Pack your walking shoes for after breakfast, brought to your room, when you'll want to walk through the leafy streets to the city, admiring on the way the pretty flowery gardens and quaint cottages. After a strenuous day of sightseeing in historic Hobart, the hill to the Mayfair may seem a little daunting. The city bus service passes the door.
