Islington Hotel is an elegant 11-room 1847 Regency Georgian private hotel overlooking Hobart.
Each room has a distinctive character; there are seven downstairs rooms- two garden deluxe, four garden and a courtyard room, including a special services room configured for guests with disabilities. A number open onto the rhododendron and azalea gardens.
The main two-storey residence has four rooms, each decorated with Tasmanian antiques. The rooms are large with king or twin-bed options. The bathrooms have been modernised with crystal marble, special baths, separate showers, and a heated granite floor.
The grand entrance hallway extends into a library containing the works of Louisa Anne Meredith, known in the early colony for her writing and painting. There is a salon and a sunny morning room for relaxing and reading and on cool nights an open log fire crackles.
The central conservatory adjoins the country-style kitchen and opens onto a terrace. Beyond is the reflecting pool, pavilion and the grandeur of Mt Wellington.
Islington’s location in South Hobart, in one of the city’s oldest and established suburbs, makes it a perfect place when staying in Hobart; it takes around 20 minutes to walk into central Hobart.
