Best Accommodation in Hobart
Many walking enthusiasts and nature lovers pass-through Hobart, but it’s actually a destination in itself.
By Walk into Luxury
Hobart is the gateway to some of the best walking and national parks in Tasmania, including Freycinet National Park, the Tasman Peninsula and Maria Island. It’s also the starting point for our signature 4 Day Lake St Clair Walk. With Kunanyi/Mount Wellington as a backdrop, this harbourfront town is steeped in Australian history which is visible in the charming architecture.
To help with choosing the best Hobart accommodation, here is our list of the best luxury hotels in Hobart.
This 5-star luxury boutique hotel has a prime position on the corner of Victoria Dock overlooking the harbour and just a 10-minute walk from Salamanca. MACq 01 is a story-telling hotel showcasing local history throughout the property, with guided walking tours available to help you discover more about times passed and characters of the area.
The rooms and suites are spacious and modern with warm inviting tones, plus large floor to ceiling picture windows framing the views of Hobart’s waterfront. Our top recommendation when staying here is to opt for a luxury suite if you like the sound of arriving at a bubble bath drawn and a glass of wine poured by your own private butler.
MACq 01 has great food and wine options available onsite with The Story Bar, a refined watering hole, offering a broad selection of refreshments while Evolve is the hotel’s sophisticated spirits bar. Dine at the Old Wharf Restaurant for local Tasmanian produce with a view over the water.
With an excellent location at the northern end of the harbourside, The Henry Jones Art Hotel is set in the historic IXL jam factory buildings which have been converted into a wonderful food and wine precinct. The boutique hotel is unique and character-filled with grand timber beams, high ceilings, historical references and local art combined to create a sense of the past.
Every guest room is uniquely styled, but all are consistently characteristic with hand-cut stone walls, rough-hewn timber and a splash of colour. They all feature a plush king bed, and many have overflow spa tubs and harbour views.
You are spoiled for choice here for dining options, with Henry Jones’ containing some of the best restaurants and cafés in Tasmania. We love the atmospheric IXL long bar for its live music and well-crafted cocktails, and you can enjoy premium dining at the Landscape Restaurant or Peacock and Jones. The IXL café offers the best breakfast in Hobart as well as great takeaway options for trail snacks and lunches if you’ll be doing some exploring.
The Tasman - a Luxury Collection Hotel, sits in a superb central location in the heart of Hobart’s Salamanca district.
Elegant, modern and sophisticated, the hotel boasts rooms and suites with high ceilings and state-of-the-art technology. The rooms incorporate carefully restored art deco features with the hotel embracing its rich heritage, set against the backdrop of Hobart's natural scenery.
The newly opened hotel offers quality food and wine with its signature Italian restaurant headed up by Chef Massimo Mele and features a reimagined old-world cocktail bar. The new luxury hotel is only minutes from Hobarts harbourfront and wonderful dining venues.
