If you are going to travel to the other side of the world, this is where you should stay. I chose to stay at the Islington based on other reviews on TripAdvisor. The website is very well done and easy to use, but I needed some assistance with the reservations. Gareth, the manager, was very prompt and helpful in his...

We recently stayed one night at Islington Hotel after arriving in Hobart in the early evening. The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The facilities inside the hotel are even more beautiful, with gorgeously furnished and decorated sitting rooms. Our room was nicely set out, with a lovely selection of T2 tea. There was a table of complimentary baked goods, with...

The Islington hotel presents couples with a wonderful relaxing experience. There has been nothing left to chance from the grounds and gardens, through to the rooms, restaurant and overall amenities. All the staff are extremely helpful and seem to enjoy their work. The views of Mount Wellington will stay with me for a very long time.

I had always heard good things about Hobart's Islington Hotel but was blown away by my (too) short stay there. It is an absolute gem of a hotel. Why? The combination of old and new architecture melded tastefully and taking full advantage of mesmerising views up to Mount Wellington, very comfortable and really well-appointed rooms, great food and all that...

This is the most marvelous boutique hotel. The ambience is superb, it feels rather like the most lovely and welcoming guest house. At the same time, there is just the right amount of personal space and privacy. The decor and styles throughout the rooms are tasteful, warm and inviting. However, all this pale in significance, to the professionalism of the...
