We stayed 3 nights in a Deluxe Spa Harbour View Room. The room itself was lovely, a reasonable size, and with unique architectural features - there's sandstone brick interior walls (being the original jam factory walls) and large wooden structural beams. Each room has art on the walls, which is also for sale. The bathroom is very modern, glass, stainless steel style, very nice and spacious.
The only downer for us was the noise factor, from guests in other rooms. Like a lot of places, you can often hear noise from the rooms beside/above you.
We didn't have breakfast included, but instead ate at the associated Jam Packed cafe in the interior courtyard, which was fine. There's also another cafe in there that we tried, again good.
Each Friday night at 5pm is a free tour of the art in the public areas of the hotel, run by the curator. It was an interesting talk and fascinating to hear more about the history of the place and see some of the behind-the-scenes areas. You must book in for the tour; you don't have to be a guest of the hotel to do the tour.
The hotel itself is right on the waterfront. Everything's a short walk.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Australia's first dedicated art hotel stands proudly on Hobart's glorious waterfront. A handsome row of historic warehouses dating from the 1820s (the former IXL jam factory) have been creatively transformed into an enthralling multi-award winning first class hotel. The hotel itself is a work of art. Here you'll be fascinated by the unexpected combination of the antique and the ultra modern. ... more less
