A Sense of History...
Alexander McGregor built Lenna in 1874. The site of Lenna was originally owned by Captain James Bayley, who sold the property to McGregor. Bayley's daughter, Harriett, later became McGregor's first wife.
A very successful and well respected businessman in Hobart Town, Alexander McGregor developed the largest fleet of sailing ships individually owned south of the Equator. He was also later to serve as a member of Tasmania's Legislative Council (Tasmania's Upper House of Parliament).
Guests may today experience a sense of history by climbing the stairs to the tower once used to look out for the safe arrival of McGregor's ships.
Over 150 unique prints have been created for Lenna from original glass plate photographs of Hobart and surrounding areas, spanning 1860 to 1938. These prints are proudly displayed in the guest rooms.
Lenna is a much loved Hobart landmark, popular with locals and visitors alike.
