The Henry Jones Art Hotel is an industrial chic accommodation overlooking Derwent river in southwestern Tasmania. Tastefully reimagined from a 19th century warehouse next to Victoria Dock, soak in fascinating stories of this historic building that was once a jam factory! Stay in individually designed and generously appointed guestrooms, some with spa baths and kitchenettes, which showcase contemporary colonial aesthetics and quirky elements. Expect details including exposed sandstone walls, high tin roofs, and an old spiral staircase in one of the suites. Between sleeping, and lazing in the cozy lounge areas, enjoy views of the cityscape and the snow-capped Mount Wellington beyond, through the windows. Accompanied by the resident art curator, admire the excellent collection of hundreds of large artworks exhibited across the property. Settle down beside modern fireplaces at the outdoor atrium cafe for a read. Mingle with Hobart’s art school regulars over artisanal cocktails and jazz entertainment at the stylish bar. Savor a selection of Tasmanian specialties over regional wines at the two restaurants onsite.
