My Mum and I shared a twin room for 2 nights for a visit from interstate. The place is beautifully designed - as you'd expect from the name. I wouldn't call it cosy - but definitely modern and stylish. Not sure how comfy it would be in winter. Fabulous location by the water which I'd definitely recommend over being in the city or further away if you don't have a car (like us).
Niggling issues with the room: terrible soundproofing. We were both trying to sleep around 9pm and could hear every single word of a phone conversation a woman was having in the room next door (and she wasn't yelling!).
Bathroom - the little table next to the sink is a stupid design. It looks cool but you can't rest anything on it as it's slats of wood. Bathroom door wouldn't close properly - a bit awkward if you're not a couple. My Mum was infuriated by how bad the lighting is in the room - with the room lights on and her bedside light she still found it too dark to be able to read properly.
Good stuff: staff are absolutely outstanding - 100% perfect.
Bar looked really nice but we didn't try it.
I used the little gym - great.
Breakfast / cafe place: OK but I would have liked somewhere with a slightly better range of choices.
It's very expensive, I think, for what you get. If I go back to Tasmania I wouldn't choose to stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Australia's first dedicated art hotel stands proudly on Hobart's glorious waterfront.
