If you want to experience Hobart’s unique blend of history and modernity, there’s only one place to stay – the Henry Jones Art Hotel on the picturesque waterfront. It’s ideal location places it walking distance from the town centre and it’s many historic sites.
Add in the views of the city and it’s majestic backdrop Mt Wellington, and there’s not a lot more you could wish for.
Gone are the days when jam making was the raison d’être, for this early 1800s industrial site. Now the structure boasts 56 rooms and suites that merge heritage features with sleek modernity. The architectural elements are truly exceptional.
Take a wander around and soak up the sandstone walls, the exposed timber trusses, beams and columns and don’t miss the Blackwood panelling that has been salvaged from the factory’s former administrative offices.
There’s unbeatable style here.
Browse the in-house art gallery or corner a drink or two at the IXL Long Bar. The mood is relaxed, so simply loosen up and indulge. And, if you’re looking for a memorable dining experience that you can talk about when you get home, the Landscape Restaurant & Grill, won’t disappoint. It’s up there with the very best.
The innovative restoration of this building, its service, location and undeniable style delivers a sophisticated an unforgettable stay.
