Pumphouse Point
Islington Hotel
A Hobart hotel for travellers looking for unique rather than universal, the Islington is all about unwinding – whether fireside in the conservatory, or in rooms that range from the subtle modernism of garden suites to the attic room's historic charms.

MACq 01
The spirit of Tasmania has an address. The timber-clad Macq01, anchored beside the Derwent on Macquarie Wharf, captures the island's colourful past in 114 rooms themed around historical figures.

Mona Pavilions
Set on the banks of the Derwent, the Museum of Old and New Art's freestanding pavilions are like giant, airy wünderkammers stuffed with remarkably good wine, intriguing books and artworks and antiquities that form part of the larger collection of the museum.

Pumphouse Point
Minimalist luxury colours every aspect of a stay at this heritage hydroelectric landmark on Lake St Clair, from lakeside Shorehouse rooms to the ultra-modern retreat. About 175km from Launceston and Hobart, a three-hour drive from both.
The above hotels were originally included in the 2018 Gourmet Traveller Australian Hotel Guide.
