This place is just amazing! We stayed in the Attic room and it was just perfect, a large bathroom with a bath and amazing king bed. The whole place is so interesting, with every room full of amazing art. Yes, it's a little out of the immediate CBD, but you can either walk during the day or hop in a...

We loved The Islington hotel. Our room was gorgeous and the bathroom large. Attention to detail was fantastic and the beds are very comfortable. You are staying in large house and so sometimes it could be noisy. Nothing however was too much trouble. Breakfasts also very good and dinner yummy too. Would highly recommend.
