Islington Hotel


The Islington Hotel sits in a prime location in Hobart with commanding views over Mount Wellington. This small, intimate hotel was built in the Regency style in 1847 and has been renovated into a luxury urban lodge with heaps of Tasmanian charm.

The 11 rooms have been sumptuously decorated with local art and antiques, plush fabrics, and beautiful pieces from the owners’ travels. Guests sink into comfortable king-sized Islington Angel beds, enjoy the use of complimentary iPads, and admire views of the gardens and Mount Wellington from huge windows.

The hotel restaurant is located in the modern conservatory, and dishes are made from local, organic, seasonal produce, often with an Asian twist, and served with Australian or premium European wines.

After a busy day exploring, retreat to the hotel to wander around the landscaped gardens, read in the library, or relax in one of three comfortable salons.
