Off we went to Hobart to catch up with family and check in at our amazing historic hotel, The Lenna. This place was simply stunning and really appealed to us as we love these period places. A very warming shower in a newly appointed room meant we were ready to meet in the hotel bar to surround the fireplace and... More

It's only by a slim margin that this accomodation deserves a 2/5 not a 1/5. I'm going to break this down in order to remain as constructive as possible for a hotel I seriously considered checking out of even though I'd already paid for two nights. Greeting on arrival - lovely staff, friendly and happy to assist with check in.... More

We were very happy with this hotel and would definitely stay at Lenna again. The room was spacious, comfortable, warm (under floor heating in the bathroom), clean and we had great views. The building itself was very pretty and there was a nice room with a fireplace and bar to enjoy a cocktail at the end of the day. The... More

Lenna of Hobart is a great looking hotel with friendly staff and good rooms. The location is great for exploring Hobart and is close, but not too close, to Salamanca Place. It's easy to explore Battery point village, with some great cafes for breakfast.

I booked the Lenna through the Qantas website, mostly for it's proximity to Salamanca Place. I was very glad I did. Our room was clean, warm and had free wifi! The hotel itself is very old and the reception, restaurant and bar areas retain that feel, especially with the open fireplaces. The room we stayed in was modern and comfortable.... More

If you're looking for a comfortable, quiet and low key hotel that has a slightly old-fashioned feeling but amazing bathrooms with under-floor heating then the Lenna could be a very good choice. The rooms are nicely equipped with a reasonably sized TV, well stocked minibar and the room service is prompt and courteous. While this is not a luxury stay... More

Whilst we weren't in the main building which has beautifully restored rooms, our room was really comfortable & had an excellent view of snow capped Mt Wellington. Breakfast in the morning was a good choice of full or continental breakfast serviced by very pleasant & busy staff

Hi phil_seymour, Thanks for the review, we are pleased you found your room to be comfortable. We are lucky to have such beautiful views here at Lenna and Mount Wellington looks especially amazing when covered in snow so I am glad you were able to enjoy this.

Have stayed here a few times while on business. It's a very clean and convenient hotel located right in the city. The rooms are small but size able for a business traveller. Would stay here again. Staff are really friendly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ideally located on Hobart's waterfront amidst the colour of Sullivan's Cove and historic Battery Point and just a stones throw away from fashionable Salamanca Place and city centre. The stately National Trust mansion was built in 1874 whilst the accommodation wing, adjacent to the mansion provides a welcoming combination of traditional elegance and modern facilities. The guest accommodation wing comprises fifty spacious en-suite hotel rooms offering well-appointed living and superior comfort facilities including queen size beds with most rooms providing wonderful views of the magnificent harbour, majestic Mount Wellington or surrounding parklands and Hobart city. The Lenna King suites offer elegance and space overlooking the harbour & Constitution Dock. Atop there are two deluxe rooftop penthouse apartments which are the ultimate luxury indulgence with 360 degree views of Hobart. The luxurious and exclusive Lenna Penthouses undeniably represent the ultimate indulgence in apartment living. Situated on Salamanca Place and overlooking Hobart's picturesque waterfront and the many lifestyle attractions, including markets, craft shops, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and the historic precinct of Battery Point. The alluring 360-degree panoramic views of Hobart's harbour and mountains from the rooftop apartments are simply stunning. They feature 2 king bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with the added flexibility of a third bedroom/living area of 35 square metres if required. The two apartments occupy the top floor of Lenna and can be offered together to form a spacious 5 bedroom 4 bathroom residence with an expansive and luxurious indoor and outdoor living space of 430 square metres that is exclusively yours. Lenna Penthouses offer state of the art furnishings, comforts and technology you would expect of a superior five-star plus apartment. All rooms are fully air-conditioned with individual climate control for each room. To find Hobart's best dining experience look no further than Alexanders Restaurant, winner of many food and wine awards. Alexanders provides a modern international menu using the finest Tasmanian produce complemented by an extensive wine list featuring Tasmanian wines. ... more   less
