The Henry Jones Art Hotel is a pioneering bolthole and was the first in Australia to centre its offerings around the art world, with many others following suit since.
Once a jam warehouse, the hotel flawlessly merges its heritage and architecture with contemporary art touches everywhere.
Exposed beams and bricks create an industrial-chic look, and as you move through the building you’ll note an eclectic mixture of handpicked pieces of art, over 500 in fact. While many have been created by graduates of the nearby School of Art and Design, others are the work of some of the region’s most distinguished artists.
The Henry Jones Art Hotel is certainly crammed full of character then, not only due to the avant-garde nature of its décor but also thanks to top views across the city of Hobart from its central location.
As a result, you’ll be able to really absorb and feel a part of the vibrant energy that abounds here, both within the hotel and outside. Jam Packed Café, named in a friendly nod to the building’s historic past, is a great place to make a pit-stop during the day and come evening the cocktails served by award-winning bar staff at the IXL Long Bar are a real treat to bring the day to a close.
The differences between the rooms at The Henry Jones Art Hotel are what unites them. Each room category proudly displays a strong personality, yet all incorporate mod-cons such as flat-screen televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi, along with a clear passion for design and original Tasmanian works of art.
Peacock and Jones prides itself on serving a high standard of fresh Tasmanian produce in a delightfully laidback environment. The original beams and brickwork on show add a wonderful nostalgic twist while furnishing is sleek and modern. Dishes are seasonal, imaginative and can be paired with one of the exceptional bottles of wine from the restaurant’s collection.
Dine in an award-winning restaurant surrounded by prize-winning art at the Landscape Restaurant and Grill, serving some of Tasmania’s finest fare and with a varied menu constantly being updated to suit the season. Rustic beams and polished panelled walls meld perfectly, along with no-nonsense furniture, allowing the show-stopping food to take centre stage.
Splashes of the hotel’s signature colour scheme of autumnal hues are scattered throughout the bar, interspersing the exposed brickwork and rafters. The cocktail menu is extensive and the bar snacks are tempting, with live jazz only adding to the easy-going atmosphere here.
Whether you are up to watch the city awaken or fancy a lazy brunch, Jam Packed Café will be ready and waiting to take care of you. Sip on a rich cup of coffee, nibble on a freshly-baked pastry, or treat yourself to some locally-caught fish and chips; with waterfront views being the icing on the cake.
Activities and Entertainment:
Tasmania may be small in comparison to mainland Australia, but it still boasts a wide range of activities. After enjoying the complimentary in-house Art and History tour, venture out to the Museum of Old and New Art to enhance your experience further, and with shopping, art galleries and cafés galore in the city centre, Hobart will give you a true taste of Tasmania. To come face to face with some of the local wildlife be sure to visit the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, where you will also be able to catch a glimpse of the iconic Tasmanian Devil.
