Islington Hotel

Primely positioned in South Hobart sits the Islington Hotel, a premier Tasmanian boutique hotel. Slightly removed from the city with panoramic views of Mount Wellington, the private yet proximal Islington Hotel offers guests a privileged location.

Showcasing the best of what Tasmanian accommodation has to offer, the Islington Hotel presents a sensory experience, with 11 unique rooms richly characterized by their eclectic style and exceptional features. This luxury adults-only Hobart hotel is for those seeking a gracious retreat amid an elegant setting.

A tranquil destination, stroll through the Islington garden and savor the shifting seasons on sundrenched terraces or by the crackling fire. Inside, the Library, the Conservatory and the Morning and Rose rooms offer the perfect places to relax and meet other guests.

Foraged from the coastal seas, lush paddocks or forest depths, the Islington Kitchen’s produce is locally, ethically and sustainably sourced. Curated by the Head Chef, seasonal menus are designed to showcase only the freshest ingredients. With an emphasis on the best that Tasmania has to offer, the kitchen rises before the sun to ensure that all food is freshly made in-house every day.

Room Information

Courtyard Suite
A private veranda and courtyard are focal points of this gorgeous north facing room decorated in rich caramel, golds and greens. Artwork and antiques complete the décor the highlight of which is the original sandstone stable wall that runs the length of the suite. The Courtyard Room is also available as twin share, we suggest you call us directly for this option.

Wellington Suite
Our most popular option - the lovely Wellington Suite. Large, bright and sunny, the Wellington Suites celebrate the beautiful outlook to Mount Wellington. Original pressed-tin ceilings evoke the original character of the room, and French doors open to views of the garden and mountain that gives the room its name.

These suites are located in the post-modern west wing of the property, on the ground floor. Unwind after exploring Hobart and surrounds in your custom-built Islington king bedded suite, featuring a marble bathroom with a rain shower, bath and heated flooring; and enjoy the luxe amenities and local Tasmanian treats included.

Garden Suite
Located within the post-modern west wing of the lodge, Garden rooms gaze directly up to the mountain through rhododendron and cherry gardens. French doors open directly onto a flagstone terrace leading to the gardens and pond beyond.

Two Garden Rooms are also available as twin share, we suggest you call us directly for this option.
Interiors are serene and relaxing – luxury furnishings in chocolates, tans, sage and gold meld with a luxurious marble bathroom with heated floor, featuring separate rain shower and deep bathtub encased in jewel box marble shoji screen walls.

Loft Suite
Tucked away at the top of the stairs is a cozy retreat of a room that is lovingly designed to be the perfect hideaway.

The intimate space is dressed in comfort colors that wrap around you with warmth and love and offers a view through the attic window that takes you straight to the top of the mountain and features an artwork by Matisse.

There’s even a marble bathroom with rain shower and bath tucked into this ingenious space.
