We took a small group to Hobart for a birthday weekend and stayed at the Islington. Hobart has a great selection of activities and dining options and the Islington was the perfect base to explore them from. The staff went out of their way to make the stay an enjoyable one for all of our guests, nothing was too much...

A well located property to base exploration of the Hobart/Port Arthur area. Extremely accommodating staff with well appointed rooms in an English garden setting. Very unique art collection! Dining was nicely paced in an architecturally stunning glass structure. Menu could be slightly more varied in evening but very satisfying! Bravo Garrett for helping to make our stay in this area...

I was so excited to stay at this place after all the glowing reviews on trip advisor-so it pains me to pen the following. I knew there was going to be a problem the minute I walked in. The odor was the smell of cooking that had impregnated fabric. A lovely lady showed me around and in the process pointed...

So, I feel almost bad about submitting this review, as the staff at the Islington were so fantastic. We really tried to get in for 2 nights, but the hotel is very popular, and could only accomodate one night, luckily. The original house is lovely, and that is what you are seeing when looking online in all the photos, however...

Judging by all the five star reviews we must have been at the wrong hotel. Sure its a lovely place but they are surviving on reviews by people who either have no idea or are very easily pleased. On arrival there was no offer to take our luggage to our room,even though my partner was limping. Breakfast, one slice of...

An avant-garde steel & glass creation fused onto an exquisitely remodelled 170 year-old mansion surrounded by delightful gardens a few kilometres (but a million miles) from Hobart’s city centre - a setting with both rewards and handicaps. This was the town’s prototype boutique luxury hotel and it’s a refined and genteel operation that deserves most of its ‘luxury’ credentials, but...

We visited the Islington hotel for a week's R&R between house renovations and were delighted with its peace and quiet. The location is good (though too far to walk anywhere if you are over 17!) and the house is lovely. However, the outstanding feature as far as we were concerned was the staff - so friendly and helpful and nothing...

The hotel is beautiful, well appointed and staff extremely attentive and friendly. The art work and furniture rare, which gives the place a unique feel. The kitchen is also a big part of the experience with sumptuous breakfast and dinner menu excellent!

The Islington is in an old home that has been beautifully updated and expanded. The main dining area is glass-enclosed with views if the surrounding mountains. The staff was charming, engaging and attentive. Breakfast was included and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner there one night. The hotel is an approximate 20 minute walk from town but we enjoyed staying away...

Staff exceptionally friendly. Wonderful blend of old and new. Breakfast and dinner both great experiences. Room pleasant and comfortable. You expect a lot at this price and for the most part it delivered.
