Islington Hotel

South Hobart - South East

Luxury, tranquillity, stunning beauty and top-quality service. Gaze out at the wonder of Mount Wellington, from the comfort of this small deluxe hotel, with fine art and antiques all around you. Savour the delicious, seasonal, organic food of its exclusive kitchen. Relax in the setting of a real slice of history (the hotel itself was built in 1847).

The way each of the eleven luxury rooms has been decorated is inspired by one of the many Tasmanians whose influence was an inspiration for the Islington Hotel. All have the highest quality of furnishings, many hand made, and a fine collection of antiques and artworks on display. Some have marble bathrooms (with bath and shower), heated floors, and views of the gardens and mountains. All have WiFi and movie-streaming services, coffee and tea-making facilities, with all barista coffee and loose-leaf tea in constant supply, a full cooked breakfast as well as a selection of biscuits, muffins and fruit (the muffins are very popular at this hotel!). There is even an iPad at your disposal. You can make local and mobile phone calls from the room and the hotel has secure, off-street parking. As well as in-room air conditioning, you will find hypo-allergenic bedding, a hair-dryer, iron and board, DVD player, a safe, and you can order a massage in the comfort of your room.

The restaurant really is something else! Exclusively for guests of the Islington Hotel, everything is home-made, even the relish, sourdough bread and cheese. Organic ingredients are sourced from local providers whenever possible, and you can enjoy the end result at the 19th century mahogany table of the library where there is room for up to 14. Not surprisingly, demand is high so it is essential to reserve your place.

In addition to an on-site meeting room and business centre, concierge services, laundry facilities, a common area with its own coffee and tea available, terrace bar and lounge and even a designated smoking area, there is also a library and grill equipment should you fancy a barbecue. There is a lower age limit for guests, and nobody under 14 years is permitted on the premises. Advance notice of check-in is necessary, due to the absence of a front desk.

The Islington Hotel is near Salamanca Market, Salamanca Place and the Australian Army Museum Tasmania. It is also within three kilometres of both Constitution Dock and Hobart Cruise Terminal.

Located in South Hobart, this luxury hotel is 0.5 mi (0.7 km) from St Peter’s Lutheran Church and 1.6 mi (2.5 km) from Salamanca Market. Australian Army Museum Tasmania and University of Tasmania are also within 1 mi (2 km).

Along with a restaurant, this hotel has a bar/lounge and a snack bar/deli. Free WiFi in public areas and free self parking are also provided. Other amenities include a coffee shop/cafe, coffee/tea in a common area, and a business center.

All 11 individually decorated rooms provide free WiFi, free wired Internet, and iPads. Guests can enjoy deep soaking tubs, and other standard amenities include DVD players, refrigerators, and flat-screen TVs.

At the top of Hobart's accommodation tree, classy Islington effortlessly merges heritage architecture with antique furniture, contemporary art and a glorious garden.
