Islington is Hobart's only true luxe hotel  and appeals to those who desire the very best in life. Located in the city's dress circle this intimate property offers personalised service and an atmosphere of serenity, luxury and tranquility from which the highlights of Hobart and Tasmania can be easily reached with an Overdrive sports or prestige car rental. Decorated with fine art and furnished with antiques, Islington is an outstanding example of Regency architecture that dates back to 1847 and boasts a large delightful garden, affording unique and stunning views of Mount Wellington.

Recently restored to showcase its original glory the property had been updated to include the little necessities and amenities our forebearers overlooked, such as glass enclosed mountain-view pavilion and a cellar stocked with the finest Tasmanian wine. Eleven sumptuously furnished guest rooms many with distinct characters, reflect an eclectic mix of a bygone era coupled with contemporary elements including white marble en suite bathrooms with deep baths. Each room has a distinctive design flourish, celebrating one of the many early Tasmanians who provided inspiration for the hotel as well as deeply restful Tasmanian custom made Islington Angel beds.
