I stayed 2 nights at the Islington which was booked out for a wedding and it was an excellent venue, as long as you want a small wedding. The Islington is very charming with some lovely sitting rooms with open fires which is fantastic in the winter. I had the attic room which has a view over the modern dinning... More

This hotel was fantastic from start to finish, stunning decor, gorgeous rooms and friendly welcoming staff. I highly recommend the hotel to anyone needing a relaxing getaway. The food for dinner and breakfast was delicious! My only slight (and it is slight) criticism is checkout being at 10am, while I didn't find this was strictly enforced, is a little too... More

Interesting place with great art but not worth the money- you could stay in much greater luxury for half the price elsewhere in Hobart. I would suggest this is more 4 than 5 star. Too far out of town that is hopeless if you don't have a car especially with Tassie's great winter weather. Save your money and stay in... More

From the moment House Manager Salena answered our desperate phone call to her warm handshake as we said goodbye we felt completely nurtured and cared for, all in a stunning property with the finest of finishes. A boutique hotel (11 rooms only) the service was personalised, but never familiar. Our waiter that served dinner was an art student who was... More

Being greeted by the lovely Serina was the first indication that we were about to experience 'special'. The building itself is amazing, full of artworks, gorgeous furnishings and open fires. Our attic room did not disappoint and maintained the high standard of the reception rooms. Gorgeous ensuite with waffle weave robes and quality products. We hadn't planned to dine in-house,... More

We recently stayed at the Islington, just to get away from it all. It worked. We had a really relaxing stay. The hotel is very stunning. It has lots of artwork on display through out and there are well appointed rooms to relax in. Our room was simply beautiful. The service during our stay was without a doubt first class.... More

Highly recommend this gorgeous retreat in Hobart. Cosy yet contemporary, the rooms are amazing & the lounge areas are wonderful for a fireside board game or book fest. All the staff were incredibly friendly, helpful & made sure we had a relaxing stay. The meals & snacks were really special. This is a fantastic romantic escape & we will certainly... More

Greeted by Serena on arrival, the most friendly hotelier I've met, given a tour of the divine heritage house which has an amazing artwork collection and wonderful outlook to Mt Wellington. Stayed in a garden room which is in the newer part of the hotel, which was absolutely wonderful. I would say that this is the best hotel and room... More

What kind words and we're very flattered to be judged the best hotel you've stayed in1 Our garden rooms are very popular, both for outlook and for the quiet tranquillity they provide. It's sometimes an advantage to be a little way out of town and on an acre of garden, although as you point out, the centre of Hobart is... More

This place is fantastic. From the welcome right through to our departure the staff were relaxed and friendly, the rooms were gorgeous and the overall property was incredibly inviting. It was so nice to have so many additional areas to sit and relax, especially in front of some lovely log fires. Brekkie was delicious and the finishing touches (bedtime tea)... More

Thank you for such kind words Kerry. I'm pleased you enjoyed the Islington Dream tea as part of our turndown service. It's made for us locally by the Art of Tea and is a favourite purchase with departing guests keen for a good night's sleep at home as well as here at Islington! I hope we see you next time... More

Beautiful small boutique hotel with wonderful attentive staff. We stayed in a very comfortable and spacious Regency room. Loved all of the little extras such as the yummy biscuits and mini muffins with a cup of tea on returning from a day out around Hobart. Breakfast was fabulous - the conservatory is a great space - love the open fire.... More

I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you gave the sweet treats a special mention! We love to include these goodies, along with fresh fruit, espresso coffee and T2 tea as part of your rate. Our chefs do like to outdo each other with their baking - the current question in the Conservatory at afternoon teatime... More
