Islington Hotel Hobart is a very special, small, luxury hotel with a long history and a large and delightful garden, affording quite special views of Mount Wellington.
The Islington Hobart is decorated with fine artworks and furnished with antiques, which appeals to those who want the very best in life, surrounded by great service, presented in an atmosphere of serenity, luxury and tranquillity. Built in 1847, Hotel Islington Hobart is a fine example of Regency architecture recently restored to showcase its original glory and updated to include the little necessities and amenities our forebears overlooked, such as a mountain-view pavilion and a fine wine cellar. Islington is a curated hotel. Corridors and rooms are filled with art and antiques, an ancient, modern and eclectic mix of 30 years of travelling around the world, added together with the historic nature of Islington itself and the owner’s family history in Tasmania.
Upon arrival, the porticoed entrance opens into an expansive marble floored hallway from which extends a library stocked with the aforementioned Louisa Anne Meredith illustrate books on early Tasmania, a drawing room for the taking of tea and a morning room where the sun shines by day and the log fires crackle by night.
Opening from the hall is the centrepiece of the Hotel Islington Hobart, the conservatory, that adjoins the country kitchen and extends onto a marble paved terrace, beyond which is a 35 sqm reflecting infinity pond, a mountain view pavilion and, towering in the background, the ever-changing beauty of Mt Wellington.
Wander through the extensive gardens, populated by a landmark willow over 100 years old, cherry blossoms and an ancient yew set amid plantings of exotic blooms designed by renowned garden landscaper Andrew Pfeiffer.
