A stone's throw from the Hobart CBD and uber popular Salamanca Markets is one of the most breathtaking hotels in Australia. The Islington has a long history with Tasmania, and lovely garden and luxurious views of Mount Wellington. Perched on a prime site this gorgeous hotel once a stately home is now an 11 room urban lodge perfect for anyone after a bit of R and R and tranquillity.
If your stay at The Islington is a short one, and you don't feel like venturing too far, you don't have to. The on site restaurant is open for dinner Wednesday to Sunday evenings and showcases the local produce. From duck breast with braised figs, to slow-cooked abalone with wild forest mushrooms it is an experience for the senses.
The hotel was built in 1847 and has retained the old world feeling by sprinkling the corridors and rooms with art and antiques, interweaving an eclectic mix items following 30 years of travelling the world, with pieces that showcase the historic nature of Islington and the owner's history in Tasmania. The 11 beautifully furnished rooms offer complimentary Wi-Fi, a marble bathroom with tub and separate rain shower, but the highlight has to be the free minibar.
The property itself is gorgeous as you can imagine and you could simply spend hours staring at the view. Outside of that the library fireplace is a great place to sink into a drink or a novel, there are massage services available and a knock out wine cellar. Parents looking for a child free escape, this is the spot for you, as the Islington is only open to guests 18 years and over.
