The beautiful gardens, beautiful rooms and a great steak for dinner for both MM and myself. Awake to quiet surrounding's, take a walk in the garden and then you should be ready for what is my best meal 'breakfast' and I loved it and so did MM. What makes this Hotel so great, well all of the above though any...

We had a wonderful stay. The room was very well appointed with a great view. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Dining was comfortable and the food amazing. I would highly recommend a visit if you are staying in Hobart.

Spent three nights here in a huge room on the first floor called the Signature Room. It was huge but the bath was small although it had been remodeled. The staff was small but very good. The dining room was very bright and pleasant. We had one dinner there which was forgettable but breakfasts were good. We did notice that...

We came upon this exceptionally fine hotel by chance in 2015, as the nearest place to stay when visiting our daughter and family in Hobart. After the long haul from London, and business in Melbourne, we found ourselves not just in the usual run of well appointed places to stay, but in a beautiful and peaceful house, being looked after...

Spent three nights at the Islington. They have a great staff, check-in was a breeze. Our room was #7, in the new part of the hotel and right next to the kitchen and dining area. Yet, it was entirely quiet in the room during our stay. Since the hotel was full, that was a pleasant surprise. The room was fine,...

Hi Darryn and Kim, Thanks for your review and kind words! It's a shame you didn't embrace our location though. Being on the fringe of the CBD is something we think adds to the appeal of the property. "Close enough to the waterfront when you wish to venture down, yet far enough away went you want to escape" is the...

This was our second visit to the Islington and the quality of accommodation and service was well above our expectations. On arrival, the friendly staff were there to greet us and show my wife and I to our beautifully appointed room. As on our previous visit, there was complimentary cakes, biscuits along with tea and coffee available in the dining...

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Islington while visiting Hobart. We stayed in the attic room which was very lovely. The hotel is more like a home and filled with all kinds of art that the owners have collected. It is charming and the main dining room is all glass with a view to the gardens. Food and staff...

Booked to stay at this hotel for 5 nights before Christmas 2016 for a nice break for my wife and I as we both had a stressful year. However, 4 days before we due to arrive from Sydney, my father-in-law passed away overseas so we informed the hotel of this. We enquired about the possibility of getting a refund, at...

Hi James, It’s a little disheartening for us to read your review. Given the circumstances surrounding your cancellation, we proactively assisted in re-booking the room on your behalf and also refunded the difference. This was done knowing that your travel insurance would cover the entire amount which I thought was showing some compassion and understanding from our side of things....

We stayed at the Islington for 2 nights and just wish it could have been longer. From the moment we arrived an air of relaxation swept over us! They want their guests to feel it is more of a home then a hotel so there isn't opening hours for the bar as an example but an honesty bar so you...

The decor in the public rooms is varied and interesting. The food in the restaurant is top notch, not only well seasoned and prepared but beautifully presented with nice Australian wines. Fresh cookies and baked items are available in the "kitchen" area next to the dining room and the selection of teas is outstanding. Rooms are nicely laid out with...
