We stayed over Easter - my first time staying at what is perhaps Hobart's most renowned hotel.
Our room was good - clean bed, generous bathroom, good shower. So all the basics covered, and our view was towards Mt Wellington, with the marina right in front of us.
So really, there was nothing to complain about. But equally, nothing to get excited about. The hotel seems to miss soul. Now, how do you define "soul" in relation to a hotel? And how do you go about creating it?
I'm not exactly sure, but I do know when it is there. And Henry Jones doesn't have it….yet.
There are spaces on the ground level which could be much better utilised to create a warmer guest experience. and Henry's - the restaurant and major hotel weak spot - could be improved oh so easily to take the hotel into the league to which it aspires.
But for now, it's an ok hotel in a superb location. And in a truly great city. Hobert rocks.More
