My husband and I spent a couple of nights at the Islington in November 2012 while on vacation. We spent 3 weeks in Australia and this hotel was one of the highlights!! Our travel agent booked it along with other excellent hotels and this was the best! I felt like a welcome guest in a beautiful home, but without any expectations for socialization. We stayed in one of the lower level rooms which walked out into the garden and had a view of Mt. Wellington.. Loved the aesthetics of the room and bathroom. The amenities were fantastic (ipad to use with art tour, stocked fridge, great bath products, movie selection). We loved the room so much we couldn't wait to get back in the evenings just to relax. The bed and linens were really comfortable and I got great sleep while we were there. The rest of the property was equally as beautiful and lots of fun to explore and look at the interesting art collection. We ate dinner there the first night (and would have the second night except it was not served that particular evening). I enjoyed chatting with the chef in the kitchen as he started his early prep work. The meal was delicious, a great value, in a beautiful setting, and the service was excellent. Loved the muffins and fruit available throughout the day. On the morning we left, they stocked us up with muffins and fruit for our car ride that day. I don't know that we'll ever make it back to Tasmania, but I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
