15 Romantic Boutique Hotels in Hobart
I haven’t yet had the pleasure of visiting Hobart, but it is near the top of my bucket list. Tasmania is means to be one of the most beautiful places in Australia. So when I finally get to go there, I’m ditching the kids with Grandma so I can go stay at one of these beautiful romantic boutique hotels. Have you stayed at any of these?
At the Henry Jones Art Hotel history and art collide. Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouses have been thoughtfully reimagined as Australia’s first dedicated art hotel. Located in the Hunter Street precinct, the hotel blends modernity with an industrial past. Decadent elliptical spas bubble underneath rough-sawn timber trusses. Blackwood-lined boardrooms have been refashioned into stately, indulgent suites.
Warm and engaging service from our curators of history and art is a hallmark of this sophisticated boutique hotel, from complimentary valet parking through to a warm Tasmanian farewell. Attention to every guest is unique – much like the 500 contemporary Tasmanian artworks lining the hotel walls.
Henry Jones represents a fusion of old and new, art and design, indulgence and discovery.

Step inside and be enchanted by the stunning chandeliers, vintage wallpaper and charming atmosphere.

Stepping into your room is a journey to a bygone era, where travel brought truly unique and surprising experiences. Indeed, it’s where ambience, artwork and furnishings are all part of a nearly 200-year-old story that continues to be told.
The breeze along Hobart’s waterfront carries a thousand captivating stories of those that were here before us – a cast of remarkable characters, each with an intriguing story to tell. In this place, the Mouheneenner people fished and forged dreams in the Derwent shallows; the first Europeans set foot ashore Van Diemen’s Land and an industry was borne amid the bustle of Hunter Island. Today, this precinct is home to MACq 01 where the stories of these colourful characters are shared in a setting of informal luxury. This is a storytelling hotel.The rooms are designed around five Tasmanian character traits.
A neutral palette for all 114 rooms allows for each to be flavoured with unexpected character notes. Every room features an original artwork by Tasmanian artist Troy Ruffels, who has interpreted each trait into his atmospheric work. Ruffels’ work sets the overall tone, supported by other design features. Where possible, local designers and craftspeople have been engaged for the internal fitout. A Hearty and Resilient room might feature rough-sawn timbers, rusted steel and bold textures to reflect the hardy souls who carved a living in our rugged, isolated environment.
The design is not about a literal translation of our Tasmanian characters, but rather a building of intrigue and curiosity about these folk. Each space throughout MACq 01 captures an emotion or feeling but leaves you to meet these characters in your own way.
