Stayed there as we were attending a 40th birthday. All other guests stayed at same property and we were all really impressed with the property. Fantastic location, so close to all that is Hobart and being in such a grand old building just added to it being so wonderful - don't worry the rooms have been fully upgraded. We will... More

Lenna is a nice hotel. The building is beautiful and it has a nice heritage feel to it. The rooms are clean but dated. The interior of the hotel is unattractive and open to the elements which for Hobart is strange. The restaurant is lovely though as is the reception and bar area. Overall I feel the hotel is fine...

hobart is a beautiful city. it's not cool in a melbourne-way (MONA, notwithstanding), nor does it offer postcard harbour views like sydney. it has more of an old-world charm about it, and i suppose that either appeals to you or it doesn't. but that's where lenna of hobart fits right in. it's a beautiful, grand old building - built back...

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be very well situated for the Salamanca area of Hobart. The Hotel itself is gorgeous and beautifully renovated. The rooms are warm and very clean. We would love to stay here again.

The Lenna isn't bad but also isn't what the hotel says it is in the way of luxury as according to the ads on the hotel TV ,the whole place was renovated in the year 2000 and promote their Penthouses completed in 2007.Maybe time to change and upgrade that video.In saying that the Beds were comfortable and the layout of...

Stayed 2 nights with my wife and 5 year old on ground floor. Spacious, comfortable, high standard of accommodation but a bit motel-like. The old building is lovely - reception, restaurant etc is there, but rooms are mostly in the newer (1970's) concrete extension. Just a short downhill stroll to Salamanca tourist shops and the market, so a great location.... More

We stayed at Lenna in January 2014 and were very impressed with the rooms. They had been remodelled and very modern, comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The old part of the hotel is beautiful! We had a view to the harbour. The hotel is very close to Salamanca and walking distance to everything. Take a... More

My fiancé and I stayed at The Lenna for 4 nights over the Queen's birthday long weekend. We had a fantastic time. The location was amazing and as we arrived on a Saturday we wanted to hit the Salamanca markets immediately.

Lenna felt like a B&B with professional staff and I have a horror of B&Bs! The staff were all friendly and accommodating and the room (superior water facing room) was profoundly fine. Not great, not terribly but really, really fine. No robes or slippers, *really* uncomfortable bed but good size, nice bathroom and delightful view. Very clean also. The common... More

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
