At a glance

Islington is an intimate, luxe hotel renowned for its intimacy and highly personalised service. Dating back to 1847, the original Regency style building has been transformed into a multi award winning 11 room urban lodge, affording unique and stunning views of Mount Wellington.  


Islington Hotel is perched in the exclusive enclave of South Hobart, slightly removed from the city with amazing views of Mt Wellington and its shifting moods. Just a leisurely 25 minute stroll from the Hobart waterfront and Mona Ferry, or the same distance can be reached in 5 minutes by taxi. Hobart is the perfect base to enjoy day drips to the spectacular Tasman Peninsula, Coal Valley wine region, Mt Field National park or the food paradise of Bruny Island.

Contemporary design elements including a two-story, central glazed conservatory that adds a new dimension to the colonial architecture and enhances the fine art collection and eclectic mix of antiques that are featured throughout the property.


Eleven sumptuously furnished guest rooms, many with distinct characteristics that reflect an eclectic mix of a bygone era coupled with contemporary elements. Each room has a distinctive design flourish, celebrating one of the many early Tasmanians who provided inspiration for the hotel.

Islington’s accommodation rooms are resplendent with fabulous imported fabrics, fine antiques and the famous deeply comfortable king size Islington Angel beds. Handmade for the hotel by A H Beard, the oldest bedding manufacturers in Australia and located in southern Tasmania, the Islington Angel beds use the latest latex materials with wool embedded into the layers for warmth and comfort.

All guest rooms come with the following inclusions:

  • A full cooked breakfast, barista coffee and loose-leaf tea for the duration of the stay, WiFi and an iPad in the room, movie streaming services, secure off-street parking, local and mobile phone calls from the room, a selection of cookies, muffins and fruit (although we suggest you’re quick as the muffins are
    very, very popular)

Dining & leisure

The main dining area and fireside snug are housed in a two-storey sandstone conservatory with a chequered black-and-white marble floor and huge, fern-filled urns. The Islington’s talented chef cooks up a delicate but flavour-packed storm, with a mix of Mod Oz and European influences. Local, seasonal produce reigns – Cressy lamb, Highland wild rabbit and fresh-from-the-water fish and oysters – to be paired with a selection of superbly selected wines.

Recently named a finalist in Gourmet Travellers best bars 2018, the Islington’s extensive honour bar, featuring all-Tasmanian wines, beers and local gin, whiskey and vodka, is available for guests whenever they fancy a tipple. The Asian-themed and darkly lush rose-hued drawing room is a soothing place for a late-night glass of tawny port, or house-speciality martini.
