The Henry Jones Art Hotel

Housed in a former jam factory on Hobart’s waterfront, the Henry Jones Art Hotel is – as the name suggests – a dedicated art hotel with a collection comprising of over 300 works of art.

Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.

Dating back to 1804, the former jam factory has been overhauled inside to make it the arty hotel that it is today, while retaining its inherent charm. The 56 bedrooms and suites are all individually decorated, and all combine the buildings history with the contemporary art collection that is at the forefront of the hotel.

Henry's harbourside restaurant highlights the best of Tasmanian cuisine, with modern takes on Australian classics. There is also a bar and the Jam Packed café - watch the pun - serving all manner of things from light lunches to coffee and wine most of the day long.

The art tours are a fantastic way to explore the hotel's gallery and learn all about the history of the ex-jam factory - the guides are pretty clued up and give a great insight into the life of a 19th Century jam maker. There is also plenty to explore in and around Hobart, from a Bruny wildlife adventure which goes into the heart of a remote Australian fur seal colony, lake distillery tours which showcase Tasmania as Australia's whisky country, and cruises around Peppermint Bay and Tasmin Island. At the hotel itself, there is a also a gym.

Why we love it

Calling all art lovers and history buffs. The Henry Jones Art Hotel is so resolutely cool as its a hotel/modern art gallery/museum all rolled into one.
