The Islington Hotel is a boutique lodge perched on the residential hills of South Hobart, Australia. Admire the Regency architecture of this 19th century building, nestled within manicured botanical gardens featuring an infinity-edge pond. Make yourselves at home in the 11 themed ensuite guestrooms with heated floors, all elegantly appointed with contemporary elements and plush designer interiors, some with private verandas and courtyards. Pamper yourself with inroom beauty and massage treatments. Browse through the owners’ personal collection of famous art and artefacts from travels around the world, spread across the property. Enjoy views of Mount Wellington, or relax under the tranquil century-old Willow tree listening to birdsong. Flip through books from the well stocked library, or play indoor games at the many lounge spaces. Sip on house spirits from the honor bar, or sample Tasmanian wines from their cellar, complemented by an assortment of homemade dainties all day. Settling down in the twin-story sandstone conservatory, sample the barbecue and savor modern Australian cuisine prepared using seasonal ingredients grown on site.
