An ancient, modern and eclectic mix of 30 years of traveling the world, the collection encapsulates the historic nature of Islington itself and the owners’ family history in Tasmania.
Islington, built in Regency style in 1847, was one of the first houses built in the dress circle of Hobart and earned its current name around 1899. Davey Street was formerly known as “Holebrook Place” – an exclusive address in the class conscious Hobart town of the period.
Our concierge team has put together the premier Islington experience. One night in the Signature Room with 5 course tasting menu, limousine transfer from anywhere in Hobart, in room couples massage and all of our favourite little luxuries.
