We stayed four nights at the Henry Jones on Hobart's waterfront. From check in to check out the experience was exemplary. The staff were all young, professional, helpful and friendly. The old fashioned concept of service with a smile is alive and well at Henry Jones.
Our room was a harbour view with spa. The hotel is built into the shell of a jam factory dating from the early 1800s, and they have kept a lot of the rough woodwork and exposed tin roof which gave the room a distinct industrial feel. Not so the bathroom which was all glass and stainless steel. The room was very large, with all the usual appointments as well as a spa bath. The only let down was a lack of cupboard space or anywhere to put the socks & jocks.
Being an "art hotel" the Henry Jones has artwork on display in all the rooms and hallways. The great majority is contemporary and not really to our taste, but it still created a great atmosphere there is also an Aboriginal art gallery in the same complex.
We really loved staying at the Henry Jones and would definitely do so again given the chance.
