    Prospect House Private Hotel is unique. Set in beautiful grounds, this historic property oozes elegance and ambience. Quiet music was heard during our superb dinner on Christmas Eve and our table of 4 loved everything we ordered. Being roughly 25 minutes from the CBD, staying overnight (as we’ve done in the past) is an added luxury worth exploring. Each suite has been meticulously upgraded and overlooks the beautiful courtyard and/or the fields surrounding the property. A perfect Christmas experience or at any time

    Fabulous stay. From the moment you are welcomed into their farmhouse style kitchen and offered a welcoming sparkling or beverage whilst you check in to the moment you leave is exquisite. Dinner was sublime. After dinner scotch in front of the fire. Room beautifully appointed and possibly the best shower I have ever experienced. Well done to all and thank you.

    We had a great meal here, accentuated by David’s fantastic service. The meal wasn’t overly complicated - simple food done perfectly. My fiancé said he had the best steak ever here, and he has been to almost every steak restaurant in Hobart. The atmosphere was so comfortable and perfect for a quiet winter’s night.

Your comments about the comfortable atmosphere on a quiet winter's night are much appreciated. We hope to have the pleasure of serving you again soon. Warm regards, James

    We visited Prospect House over a year ago now and absolutely LOVED the expirience. We have been waiting to come back. We tried a few times but the booking system became very non-customer friendly. However recently the booking system has changed and we were excited to return. Sadly we were largely disappointed with the expirience. The place was remarkably cold - unlike during our first visit when it was cosy and welcoming (yes we did visit during cold days as well). Some of the meals arrived cold which was disappointing. The food was quite basic not reflective of the price and the fansy surroundings. The fish was dry and choice of desert quite limited. We will try again and may be things will improve but generally it was sad to see that quality of the expirience dropped.
    Prospect House Private HotelResponded on 19 May 2023
    Thank you for your positive feedback on our previous degustation menu. Please note that our regular à la carte service differs. No changes have been made to the booking system. During the peak summer season, securing a reservation can be difficult due to high demand. The availability this time is due to the off-season. The heater and fireplace were on during your visit. If some items seemed cold, it may be our intentionally chilled handmade duck terrine, a traditional autumn specialty.

    Thank you so very much for such an enjoyable evening to celebrate our wedding with a small family gathering. The service is the best I have ever experienced along with excellent food and such friendly accommodating staff. We will definately be back in the future and can't recommend Prospect House Restaurant highly enough.

    Today we booked Lunch @ Prospect House based on great reviews we had read. Everything from the meal, the service (David Jansen) and the magnificent Prospect House exceeded all expectations. Arriving to the gated property we are buzzed through the gates into the most spectacular gardens of Prospect House. We are then greeted at our car by David and guided through the gardens into the beautiful dining room. Furnishings are tasteful and rooms are impressive. We had the most amazing 3 Course Lunch (Menu and Pictures attached) Could not fault the whole experience. Great property and excellent food. A day not easily forgotten. We spoke at lunch of all the places we had travelled and dined and Prospect House goes in to top 10. Don't hesitate booking a meal or a stay you won't be disappointed

    Our reception was lukewarm when we arrived. Told we didn’t have a booking that night which was weird when I had confirmed it that morning. We were shunted into a room and told to wait. Not even an offer of a drink. Eventually we were told to come in sit in the breakfast room. It wasn’t until half way through the night that the waiter gave an apology of sorts. The food - apart from the dry bread roll and so called house churned butter was lovely. This was meant to be a special occasion but we were not made welcome which tainted our evening. Could do better.

    We chose Prospect House for a special family dinner and were very pleased with both the tasting menu and wine selection. Pooley’s wines are featured, and rightly so. Although it is a half hour from Hobart, it is well worth the drive. It would have been even better if we had booked accommodation too!

    Intimate and polarising experience, our waiter was lovely and knew a lot about the local history and the local wine producers. The food was delicious and some of it was lovingly selected from local sources. Would definitely come again, perhaps with a larger party.
