      This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in Australia. The staff were very attentive and helpful, and the hotel is a treat in itself. Beautiful rooms in the old IXL jam factory. Exposed wood beams, pod style bathrooms, and cool art in the rooms, halls, lobby...what's not to appreciate about this hotel.

      Historical Traveler Reviews The Henry Jones Art Hotel Hobart

      Stylish and well-located


      Located on the quayside. Rooms vary in size and price - we preferred our double room to the suite. The suite was much more expensive because it had a bathtub and, apparently, 'finer art on the walls'! Beds were large and very comfortable and room was really quiet and very stylishly decorated. One of the best things (after travelling for 2 weeks) was a guest laundry, which is the most brilliant idea - just $2 to do a load of washing with a free tumble dryer, conveniently located on same floor as guest rooms. Bathrooms were excellent, except a few niggles - nowhere to hang used towels, the glass shower partition was a bit minimalist, meaning the bathroom floor tended to flood. Also, tiny bottles of water in bathroom (not chilled) with a price label of $3 each -annoying & ridiculous in a hotel of this class!

      The Best in Hobart


      My husband I stayed here on a recent trip to hobart. The rooms are highly original, very classy and luxurious. Everything about it was sophisticated.

      the hotel staff were delightful and very friendly.

      My only complaint was the restaurant. When holidaying, my husband I tend to dress down. The waiter frowned up our relaxed look and sat us outside rather than in the actual restaurant which had plenty of seats. He took our order and returned with our food after some time. That was the last we saw of him. We were never asked if we wanted more drinks, despite both of us having an empty glass, and when we finished our mains, the empty plates remained in front of us for 30 minutes before ANOTHER waiter noticed. We asked for the bill and had dessert ordered from our room. (however, the chefs are amazing. the food was beautifully presented and tasted was just yummy!!)

      I would stay in this hotel again, but would by pass the restaurant

      Just Fantastic!


      My now husband booked the Henry Jones for a romantic weekend away (and a suprise marriage proposal). We have not stayed in a better hotel. Great rooms, food and cocktails. Highly recommended for those who want a classy but romantic getaway. Right near Salamanca markets too.

      What a fantastic Hotel with Great Service - Can't recommend highly enough


      I just spent the weekend in Hobart with my partner and we stayed at The Henry Jones Art Hotel, from the minute we arrived the staff were amazing. As we only had a limited amount of time in hobart the hotel provided me with a long list of things to do and see. Nothing was too much to ask :-) The service in the whole hotel was exemplary.

      I will definately be going back to tassy and if in that area again will 100% stay there again.

      The Best Hotel in Tasmania


      We have just a very enjoyable week in Tasmania and spent our first and last nights in Hobart in very different hotels. The first was at the Grand Chancellor which had a great view over the harbour but not much else. The last was in the new Henry Jones Art Hotel and the whole experience was totally enjoyable for only $20 more per night. The hotel was created from an old wharf factory which was the Henry Jones IXL Jam site and its conversion to a modern comfortable hotel is fantastic. Check in was easy with charming staff who provided a geniune welcome and the room was stunning, especially the bathroom. Great bed, flat screen LCD TV with DVD player and a view over docks to Hobart City with Mount Wellington as a backdrop.

      We ate in the Hotel at Henry's, where the food and service was top class at reasonable prices. I would recommend the home made pasta with lobster and seafood pieces which had a sauce to die for.

      This is a great hotel that is worth the trip to Hobart.

      Simply the best


      I have written a few reviews for this site over the years but this is the only hotel I have thus far rated at five stars. I rank this hotel as one of my all-time favourites in the world. Quite simply we had no complaints whatsoever and just about everything exceeded our highest expectations. The sympathetic renovation of this historic building is stunning and it is obvious that considerable thought has gone into every detail. It makes one proud to be Australian. Make sure you book a water-view room. Thank you to all the wonderful staff for making our stay in Hobart so memorable. I can't speak highly enough of the staff in terms of their helpfulness and professionalism without a hint of the aloofness that occasionally mars the service at superior establishments. Given the quality of the experience - the hotel rates are incredibly reasonable.

      Very Good


      This is an exquisitely designed hotel. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated with the most amazing opaque glass bathrooms. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was great although we didn't have dinner at the hotel I hear it is generally good. Location is good too with a nice view of the harbour.

      Great Location!


      We didn't stay there, but stumbled on it and had a cocktail there. What a fabulous location - right on the pier. Lobby looked elegant but relaxed. Service in the bar was great if that's any indication. Wish we would have stayed there!

      Best hotel in Hobart


      This hotel is just what Hobart needed! I am from Hobart originally and when we headed down in feb 2005 to get married, I wanted something out of the ordinary as the place to spend our wedding night. Stunning conversion, fantastic staff, brilliant location.

      Just the best!


      My partner and I booked a waterfront spa room for one night on our way up the Tasmanian east coast to Freycinet National Park. As seasoned luxury accommodation travellers and owners of a modern warehouse apartment in Melbourne we were blown away by the tasteful restoration of this old jam factory into one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail in furnishings and level of service were outstanding. The room rate was extremely good value. We were delighted and certainly will return. A must for any traveller wanting something above the usual!

      The rest of the day was spent walking around Hobart, soaking in the sights, shopping and staying out of the car.

      Next morning, up and alive I headed down to Salamanca to look for a cheeky breakfast and coffee, however there was only 1 cafe and it was heaving, so boarded onto the MONA ROMA ferry and grabbed a coffee and lovely large slab of Carrot Cake....mmmm!!! After a 30 minute journey we arrived.

      This gallery is mind blowing. By far the best I have ever visited. A few interesting facts about MONA ...

The last 20 mtrs is supported only from the previous staunchon so there is a bit of swing movement at the end. So another first among many firsts on this trip and well worthwhile. Our return trip included stops at a couple of local touristy places to checkout local produce and gifts to compete a long but enjoyable ...

This is officially Tasmania’s top tourist attraction and in 1996 was the scene of worst mass murder event in post-colonial Australian history, when ...
