Reviewed June 29, 2013

This is an excellent hotel, centrally located on the historic waterfront. Rooms are individual and quite spacious, as well as very comfortable. I had a Harbour View Room and it was lovely. Service from the staff was excellent across the board. I ate at Henry's Restaurant in the hotel for dinner one night and the food was very good. The only real letdown during my stay here was the Breakfasts. The food was pretty dreadful. Expensive too. Limited choices, salty and greasy food. Poor quality food compared to Dinner. Don't waste your money on the breakfasts, there are plenty of better places for a morning feed within walking distance of the hotel. Other than that, this is a lovely hotel and I would stay again. But I would eat elsewhere.

The Henry Jones is a gorgeous hotel right on the harbour in Hobart, within walking distance to attractions and restaurants. The hotel itself is gorgeous with artwork throughout, a restaurant, bar and cafe. Check in was very efficient and we were asked what we planned to do and were given some good tips as well as a map of the area.

It was really cold when we arrived and our loft had an air conditioner on both levels so the place stayed nice and warm. The bathroom was quite small but did have heat lights which made it nice and toasty for those cold mornings. The studio lofts have a kitchenette, lounge/eating area, bathroom and tv etc. downstairs and upstairs is the bedroom. Decor wise they are a bit tired but they were very clean.

Our room was at the back of the hotel and backed onto a staff car park. It was reasonably quiet - maybe about 5-6am i could hear the highway traffic faintly and a few cars here and there but it wasn't too bad at all.

Only complaint was the bar closes at 10.30pm even on a Friday and Saturday night. So coming home at 11pm and wanting a night cap wasn't possible.

Room Tip: Studio Loft Room 205 is at the back of the hotel

Our stay at the Henry Jones Art Hotel was an extremely enjoyable stay. All the facilities are very good the staff really know their stuff when I comes to the area and the history. It is a lovely quiet place to stay and very relaxing. Close to the Salamanca Markets (walking distance) and there are plenty of restaurants all within walking distance too. Over all I would recommend The Henry Jones as a great place to come and relax.

Room Tip: The Sudio rooms are a smaller but they are quieter

This gorgeous hotel is situated in the old IXL Jam Factory on the dock of the Hobart harbour. The hotel has won numerous awards both from tourism and hospitality industry groups, and also from Master Buiders Association and the Institute of Architects for design and heritage architecture.

The building itself is a work of art. Rooms abound in original stone walls and thick century-old beams, beautifully integrated with sympathetic modern touches. Lights seem to float above beams, and shower screens fit elegantly against sandstone walls.

We had a spa suite on the second (top) floor. The bathroom was large, spacious and lovely. The bedroom was also quite roomy, although a little dark. (Being the middle of winter, there was little external light coming in through the window. The subdued lighting was perfect for our little winter weekend away though, encouraging rest and relaxation while in the room).

Service was exceptional, from our front-desk check in encounter through to organising a hire car to be dropped off to the hotel, booking festival tickets, recommending restaurants, and generally being very helpful. Each day notes were left on our bed by housekeeping with helpful hints about events occuring in the city that day, or suggestions on sight-seeing opportunities.

Locals who heard where we were staying all agree it's one of the nicest hotels in the city. We couldn't agree more.

stayed here twice now. liked t both times. its in the perfect location to eat at the good restaurants over at salamanca square and also get the ferry to MONA.
its not too far from what i think Hobarts best restaurant is as well Garagiste.

the staff are good. its in an old warehouse. the rooms are all different. the price is reasonable and makes for a great trip to hobart.

oh and its full of art (some of it a bit average, but interesting all the same)

highly recommend.

We stayed in one of the better rooms on the top floor. The room had a great blend of modern and old rustic stone walls. Spacious with a spa bath in the flash bathroom.

Better overhead lightly in the bathroom would be a good idea. Also (as it rained when we were there) the old tin roof was a little noisey (but nice).

Located right on the harbour front on the wharf. Close to everything. Nice bar (although we didn't eat at their restaurant. Enjoyed seeing all the art works around the walls,

Room Tip: Maybe get a room on the middle floor might be quieter.

A beautiful hotel where every feature has been thought about to provide a remarkable experience. The design of the rooms is splendid, the staff warm and attentive and the food - particularly the breakfasts - superb!
Despite a rather cool and damp weekend we are warm and glowing from such a pleasant experience. I hope that we will be back.
