Type: Unique

Grade: Superior

Introduction

This former jam factory, located opposite Victoria Dock, has been transformed into a hotel showcasing the work of Tasmania's finest artists and offering fifty-six rooms in the heart of Hobart. Australia's first and only dedicated art hotel, Henry Jones' provides an ingenious mix of contemporary design elements with traditional building structures and artworks throughout designed.

Standing in the historic position where Hobart was first settled 200 years ago, a row of historic warehouses dating from the 1820's and a former IXL jam factory have been sensitively transformed into an enthralling and luxurious hotel on the edge of Hobart's waterfront. The hotel is itself a fusion of art, heritage, technology and tradition. From its original and beautifully crafted staircase to the restored machinery and the magnificent all-glass atrium, the Henry Jones Art Hotel reflects the fascinating influences of its rich colonial past and early trading history with India and China.

Rated as one of the best 60 new hotels in the world, this hotel offers luxurious rooms and suites, each featuring natural timber furnishings, special lighting, a lavish king-sized bed with exotic silk covers and ottomans. Most suites have close harbour views, while others overlook the stunning glass atrium and reveal glimpses of the old jam factory interior. A restaurant, bar and café serve top-quality Tasmanian fare and the onsite gym will help ensure you keep the pounds off, even as you sample these tempting delicacies.
