Islington Hotel is an elegant 11-room 1847 Regency Georgian private hotel overlooking Hobart.
Each room has a distinctive character; with seven downstairs rooms- two garden deluxe, four garden and a courtyard room, including an equal access room for guests with disabilities. A number open onto the rhododendron gardens.
The main two-storey residence has four rooms, each decorated with Tasmanian antiques.The rooms are large with king or 1 twin-bed option.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 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 opening 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’s a 20 minute to walk into central Hobart.
