“Olde World charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

Whilst we weren't in the main building which has beautifully restored rooms, our room was really comfortable & had an excellent view of snow capped Mt Wellington.
Breakfast in the morning was a good choice of full or continental breakfast serviced by very pleasant & busy staff

Room Tip: Really close to the Saturday Salamanca Markets where we spent hours. Easy walk to many restaurants

Hi phil_seymour,

Thanks for the review, we are pleased you found your room to be comfortable. We are lucky to have such beautiful views here at Lenna and Mount Wellington looks especially amazing when covered in snow so I am glad you were able to enjoy this. The old Lenna mansion is indeed beautiful however there are no guest rooms in this building; instead it is home to reception, Alexanders Restaurant, the Chandelier Bar and a variety of function rooms. All accommodation is located in the adjacent wing where you stayed.

We are also happy to hear you enjoyed your breakfast in Alexanders. We have recently re-worked the menu to provide options to suit the needs of all our guests so it is good to hear you found plenty to choose from.

Thanks again for the review and we hope to see you again.

Kind regards,

Florence

Have stayed here a few times while on business. It's a very clean and convenient hotel located right in the city. The rooms are small but size able for a business traveller. Would stay here again. Staff are really friendly.

Hi Shep C,

Thanks for the review.

We are always very happy to hear from return guests and are pleased you have enjoyed your stays with us.

Thanks for your great feedback on the staff and the hotel in general. I am quite surprised you found the rooms to be on the smaller side as they are often described as spacious for hotel rooms but we do appreciate your comments.

We look forward to seeing you next time you are in Hobart on business.

Kind regards,

Florence

My husband and I booked two nights in Lenna of Hobart, and were glad of our choice. Clean, perfect location, nice views. Lenna of Hobart is situated just in the middle of old city. Nice walking in any weather and any time. Friendly and helpful staff. The day of our check-out we have asked to leave our car at the car parking for a while. The girl at the reception said that yes, we could do as long as we needed. It was awesome. We should not think where to park in CBD.
Definitely next time we stay there.

Fourteen years ago my husband and I awaited the results of the ever so close presidential election of 2000 at the Lenna Hotel. When we decided to return to Tasmania earlier this year - the Lenna was the only hotel we seriously considered. This stay, as the was the previous, was wonderful. The location could not be better. You are right next to the Salamanca Market (on Saturdays) and in the heart of the harbour area and the major tourist attractions of the older part of Hobart. Free parking. Very good food, although our service on the night of our arrival was way too slow. You are also near the Battery area - many special buildings to look at, and beautiful water pretty much all around you. Very nice room. We were glad for the air conditioning when we were there. So many places within walking distance to shop and eat that decisions are hard to make. Really recommended.

Hi Lori M,

Thanks for staying with us and taking your time to post your review.

We are pleased to hear you kept us in mind after so many years! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and agree our location really is second to none so it's good to hear you made the most of it and explored all of Hobart has to offer.

We are also glad you enjoyed the free parking, it is great to be able to offer this free parking to hotel guests literally metres from the lively Salamanca area and Hobart's waterfront.

Thanks also for taking the time to dine in Alexanders Restaurant, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the food however we do apologise you found the service on the night to be slow.

Thanks again Lori M, we hope to welcome you back to Lenna of Hobart in the future.

Kind regards,

Florence

I have stayed here many times over many years. It's my favourite hotel in Hobart and one of the best I've stayed in anywhere. The rooms are large and the service excellent.
Now also has free Wifi. Staff are also excellent

Room Tip: No bad ones. You get either views down the Derwent or views of Mt Wellington

Hi ChesterM28,

Thanks very much for the review, it is always great to receive positive feedback from our regular guests.

We are glad you enjoy the extra space of our hotel rooms, it is great to be able to provide guests with a lounge setting area to sit and not just the bed as it is in many hotels. We are also particularly happy to hear the feedback regarding our staff customer service as we pride ourselves on our friendly service here at Lenna of Hobart.

Thanks again ChesterM28, we hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards,

We were only at the hotel for one night, but found it comfortable, convenient and well staffed.

The room was spacious, quiet and dark with the curtains drawn which was great. Linens and towels were all spotless.

Cooked breakfast in the morning was excellent. We would love to stay again.
