Our first trip to Hobart, and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The location, right on the Hobart wharves, is absolutely perfect. We had a stunning view from our the window of first floor room, and loved being able to walk to the MONA ferry, to the Salamanca Markets, to the wharves to watch the yachts arriving after the Sydney to Hobart race, and to so many outstanding restaurants. If we were ever staying again at this time of year, we'd be sure to book as early as possible - rooms sell out very quickly. The hotel is, of course, stunning. In an old IXL jam factory, it's been brilliantly designed into a very comfortable hotel and showcases different, original artworks throughout. Our room was much larger than standard, with a well-sized bathroom with an over-sized shower and a spa bath included. The only thing not perfect about it was that the windows weren't double-glazed, which meant that you could hear early-morning noises from the (working) wharf as shipping boats came in. If you're a light sleeper, try for a room on a higher floor but note that this is a low-rise building. We ate at the cafe in the atrium courtyard 2 mornings and thought the menu and food were very good. I also want to commend the front-desk staff, who could not have been more helpful, friendly, or full of information and advice. Also commend the parking service - so easy, just park in the dedicated hotel car park right in front of the hotel and the car's whisked away till you need it next. Would definitely, 100% return to this wonderful hotel again.
