Henry Jones Art Hotel
Tasmania has become the destination for many, with MONA drawing the crowds. But take your time. Explore. Take the ferry to Bruny Island for perfect amount of isolation. The Henry Jones Art Hotel in Hobart is situated right next to the city, with views across the harbour. Converted in 2004 from an old jam factory that dates back to 1804, this art hotel has 56 individually designed rooms with heritage touches.
RUSSH loves… The service. The staff are all love their hometown and can give you all the best tips for Hobart and even Tasmania.
What you see… Boats bobbing on the harbour outside your window. Sleepy seaside scenes.
The drink of choice… The bartender gave us a Tasmanian wine tasting – with cheeses to match.
Best way to spend the day… Walk five minutes to the ferry that takes you across to MONA. A coffee and a croissant on the boat for sustenance. Enjoy a day relaxing at the art gallery, have lunch at the art gallery’s restaurant, The Sauce. Walk along the harbor at sunset. Finish off the day with a drink and dinner at the hotel.
