What a find. My husband and I stayed at the Islington for 4 nights to watch our son play in the National U17 cricket championships. The luxurious and homely surroundings were a welcome respite after our horrendous delays and loss of luggage on our trip over from Perth. Our garden room was perfect with a lovely view of Mount Wellington, very comfortable, and with a wonderful modern bathroom, but the highlight of our stay was the in-house restaurant. We had planned to eat at the hotel on our arrival night, and had booked several other Hobart restaurants for the other nights. However, the food and service in the splendid dining room (with beautiful view of Mount Wellington) were exquisite, and so we ate in every night. We have been travelling extensively for 30 years and have rarely come across a hotel with this standard of restaurant. This hotel offers the whole package. We will be returning same time next year, and hope to stay longer next time. Thank you so much to all the staff particularly the chef - you prepared the best steak I'd ever had
