This is definitely a very nice small hotel. With good service and great breakfast. A previous post by a recent visitor complaint about the bed is totally wrong. We had a perfect nights sleep. I only note we are on the highest floor and staff had to negotiate the stairs with our luggage (not a small amount) she did so...

Stayed for 3 nights. Gorgeous boutique hotel with excellent staff. Large rooms with amazing views. About a 20 minute walk from CBD. Luxurious, welcoming - a place to return too. Staff are very helpful and attention to detail is amazing. It is very rare to find a place that exceeds expectations. View from bedroom attached.

To start it is important to emphasise the hotel has essentially good qualities with a very welcoming manager. A very impressive physical space. The main issue of concern is a very sub standard bed. The mattress is ultra thin, no more than 10-12 cm and the base is farcical, a piece of solid plywood. By the description it is obvious...

I set out wanting to write a fabulous review, but realised that my limited mastery of words could not do this place justice. The Islington Hotel is indeed a hidden gem. Located within the residential suburb of South Hobart, this boutique hotel is about 20 minutes walking distance to the CBD, with easy access to the freeway, and other local...

My wife and I had 4 nights there in December. Thoroughly enjoyable. Genuinely friendly and accomodating staff.Arrived late in the evening and were shown around by the manager and were offered dinner by the chef even though it was past normal dining hours. Overall a very comfortable and relaxing stay.

We booked this hotel as an anniversary treat - and it was a real treat. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by one of the brilliant managers we knew were were in safe hands. Shown to our room, we had treated ourselves to the Signature Room - and were delighted with our choice. Big room, with chilled white...

Once you experience the Islington, you may never ever want to leave .... the most lovely hotel I have stayed in. It's like being invited into a beautiful home, and your host insisting you enjoy every corner of their pride and joy. The team who run the Islington greet you like treasured friends making the service unique. The open kitchen,...
