“My go-to Hobart hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stay here once a month for work travel. Nice big old building that is in fantastic condition. The rooms are big and clean with views over the water or Mt Wellington. I've never eaten here, as Salamanca is meters away so I can't comment on the food.
If you can get a good deal, stay here as the regular rate is pretty high for Hobart ($300+ per night).

Room Tip: Go for a ground floor room

This is a reluctant review, because I'm afraid this hotel will be too popular when we come back and we won't get in! Everything perfect. From the welcome, the room (and all its 'boxes ticked'), to the location. Next time we visit Tassie we will stay here the whole time and just do day trips. Best stay of the holiday.

We stayed for an extended weekend as a family group. The view on the upper floor overlooking the Derwent was superb, as was the room, breakfast and restaurant. The service in the partly historic building/hotel was A1.
Thoroughly recommended. The hotel is right next to the Salamanca precinct and waterfront and is also close to many good restaurants. Hobart is a wonderful place for an interesting holiday

Room Tip: Choose an upper room with River view. The Penthouse is luxurious!

We were in hobart for a couple of nights and found the location at the end of the Salamanca markets just ideal for short ventures and a trip into the docks.
Good breakfast rooms, were quite big and the old house is fantastic
Briefly the accommodation block next to the old house is where you stay and is fairly contemporary.
Staff were friendly ,rooms were clean and heaters worked well. The heated tiles in the bathroom were a god send

Dear mcbriz,

Thank you very much for the review.

I am happy to hear you enjoyed your time at Lenna and made the most of our central location. I am also pleased you had a chance to look around the beautiful heritage listed Lenna mansion, it is wonderful to imagine what it would have been like as a private residence back in the 1800’s.

Thanks for your comments regarding the room and our staff, it is always great to hear positive feedback from our guests.

We look forward to seeing you next time.

Kind regards,

Florence

We’ve been joking for nearly forty years about their then very formal doorman telling us, when we came to see what the place was like, that they didn’t take “bus people”. Well, now they take everyone. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms were modern, big, and clean. The buffet breakfast was fairly limited but was adequate. It is very close to Salamanca Place and the Saturday Market. The original building which contains the bar and restaurant has some very grand rooms with ornate furnishings.

Dear ontheball,

Thanks for sharing your great story. We opened in 1974 so you would have been some of the first guests through the property.

Unfortunately, gone are the days of the doorman, however, we still have a great team and certainly pride ourselves on our customer service.

Room have no doubt changed a bit since your last stay and nice to ready the you enjoyed them.

Sorry you found the breakfast buffet limited. We are constantly adding to this in order to improve our offerings and have recently included: better coffee selection, gourmet cheeses and sliced meats and yoghurt and granola pots with fresh berries.

Hope to see you again (hopefully sooner than 40 years time!)

Kind regards
Justin

We loved staying at the Lenna. Pity it was for only 1 night, we would certainly go back. An electric blanket was a lovely inclusion in the room and breakfast was great. We arrived a little early for check-in but the staff were happy to look after our luggage and send a message when the room was ready to occupy.

Great you enjoyed the electric blankets, they are a nice little touch we provide during the cooler months.

Hope to see you again.

We were in Hobart for a quick weekend and this is the best location. We could walk everywhere. Minutes from the Salamanca Market, restaurants, pubs, shops. The rooms aren't fancy but comfortable and practical. Comfy bar with cozy fireplace.
