Islington is a boutique hotel set in beautiful gardens in the dress circle of the City. With stunning views of Mount Wellington, this luxurious exclusive enclave has 11 rooms each of a distinctive character.
Islington is a very special, small, deluxe hotel in Hobart with a long history and a large and delightful garden, affording unique and stunning views of Mount Wellington. Decorated with fine art and furnished with antiques, Islington appeals to those who desire the very best in life, surrounded by personalised service, presented in an atmosphere of serenity, luxury and tranquillity.
Built in 1847, Islington is an outstanding example of Regency architecture recently restored to showcase the property's original glory and up-dated to include the little necessities and amenities our forebears over-looked, such as a glass enclosed mountain-view pavilion and a cellar stocked with the finest Tasmanian wine.
Downstairs the entrance opens into an expansive hallway from which extends a library, a salon and a morning room where the sun shines by day and the log fires crackle by night.
The centre piece of the hotel is the conservatory that adjoins the kitchen and opens out to the terrace, beyond which is the reflecting infinity edged pool, pavilion and towering in the background is the grandeur of Mt Wellington.
Late in the afternoon enjoy a glass of Tasmanian wine while savouring the setting of the sun. And from here wander through the extensive gardens, populated by a landmark willow tree over 100 years old.
