I was keen to stay at this hotel after all I have read and heard about it, but unfortunately, I will not be returning. The room was comfortable, but not worth the price. The location was great and even though the room was facing onto the harbour the view was limited because of the size and placement of the window. (Poor design). However, I did like the ensuite with the walk in shower.
I do have concerns with security at this hotel. While I was in the bath, the entrance door to the room opened and it was clearly visible through the translucent glass wall of the ensuite. This was not preceded by an audible knock, and I did not order anything from room service. I did not report this at the time, but perhaps I should have, although I felt nothing would have been done about it.
On check out, I requested a receipt, but was denied this even after discussions with the manager. The hotel is unable to supply a receipt unless the booking is made directly with them. If you require one, then I suggest you do not book with any accommodation reservation website. This is the first time I have encountered this problem.
Finally, the valet parking was appreciated, except our car was incorrectly parked by the staff when brought up to the front of the hotel. As we headed to our car on departure, a parking officer was in the process of writing an infringement notice! When we explained that we were exiting the hotel and the staff were responsible for parking the car, we were fortunate he decided to dismiss the ticket.
We did love Hobart, but not The Henry Jones.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Australia's first dedicated art hotel stands proudly on Hobart's glorious waterfront. A handsome row of historic warehouses dating from the 1820s (the former IXL jam factory) have been creatively transformed into an enthralling multi-award winning first class hotel. The hotel itself is a work of art. Here you'll be fascinated by the unexpected combination of the antique and the ultra modern. ... more less
