The staff, service and food was all impeccable.
Our stay was wonderful. We didn't want to leave! The staff bent over backwards to meet our every need and we felt very special and looked after. The room was beautiful and the food in the restaurant very nice. We would definitely stay again in future

Consistently the Best
Accommodation, service and attention to detail
This was our second stay there (our first was a couple of years ago) and still amazing. Rooms are more than comfortable, service is on the ball, food amazing and just a great feeling when you walk through the doors. Everything is easy, not rushed and very pleasant. Highly recommended as the place to stay when in Hobart.

A brilliant hotel with impaccable service to match
Extremely attentive staff, great in-hotel food, boutique luxury feel
Our stay at the Islington was one of the highlights of our trip! After being greeted by a member of staff we were given a brief tour of the building, including a run-down on its artworks and various sitting rooms, libraries etc. We were then taken to our Garden Room (a complimentary upgrade from the Attic room), which we found delightful. We loved the view of the gardens and mountains in the background, and enjoyed the touches such as Aesop amenities, iPad and house-blend tea as part of the turndown service. We had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant (breakfast of house baked beans, local mushrooms, bacon etc) was particularly good, as was the coffee. The chef happily shared recommendations for places to eat in Hobart, and didn't let us down! We enjoyed lounging by the various fireplaces in the building, and socialising with the other couples. We felt cozy, but never crowded - there are plenty of areas to sit and enjoy privacy from other guests. Overall, a brilliant experience. Will be back.

A tranquil, luxurious weekend.
The attentiveness of the staff, the gorgeous building, art and surrounds, and the comfort and relaxed atmosphere.
This was the best weekend away in a long time! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the room was comfy, clean and well,appointed, and we were really made to feel welcome. It was a great base for a quick visit, we walked almost everywhere but it's only a $10 cab ride from the city. Just lovely.

Very charming hotel with attentive service
Comfortable atmosphere, just like your own (rich relative's) home!
Small luxurious hotel but does not skimp on services. Friendly staff who all seem to enjoy what they are doing and takes their time explaining things to you. Very comfortable king size bed, clean and modern bathroom with quality toiletries. Very yummy breakfast, especially the vanilla porride and perfectly cooked eggs and baked beans. You can order whatever you want for breakfast. We also had dinner there and it was delicious and not over priced. Also free minibar, free dvd and games, free muffins and biscuits, and free coffee (real coffee) that you can have made for you anytime. At a glance, it seems more expensive than other hotels in Hobart, but with all these included, I think it's a really good value considering what you pay in Sydney or Melbourne! (but don't increase the price!)

Amazing hotel and enjoyable stay!
Yummy raspberry muffins. Lovely service. The decoration style.
I am into boutique hotels and always make it my first accommodation choice when traveling. Islington hotel is among the best ones I have ever stayed at. The decoration, lovely service and the details like no room number on the doors and a list of all the art works in the hotel provided an experience like living in a friend's house who loves art and has good taste other than in a hotel. Hobart is also a good place for traveling even you knew nothing about it before. There are so many good-organized one-day tours, although some of them need reservations. The staff at islington hotel gave us useful information about planning our travel. Thanks a lot.
