Lenna of Hobart

Hotel - Resort - Tasmania


Lenna of Hobart is not just a place to rest your head. It’s an experience. Open the door to this 1874-built sandstone mansion and connect with Hobart Town’s story. This landmark hotel puts you right on the historic doorstep of Hobart’s vibrant waterfront. Salamanca Place, home to Australia’s largest outdoor market and fine eateries are a few hundred metres away and a short walk leads to the CBD, Mona ferry terminal and waterfront precinct.

About 100 years after the mansion was built, a new accommodation wing opened. With it came a new level of luxury for Lenna of Hobart. Today, rooms with harbour, mountain and park views blend with the same elegance and level of service the hotel is regarded for. In any room, Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary wifi and modern comforts come standard. Want to really treat yourself? Stay in a penthouse with 360-degree sweeping rooftop views.

Once the only house on this lofty waterside hill, it is Lenna of Hobart’s desirable location that is equally coveted today. In Tasmania without a car? You could spend a whole weekend exploring from Lenna of Hobart by foot. Historic Battery Point brims with charming cafes and doors leading to antique sellers and florists. Kelly’s Steps lead down to the art galleries, cafes and chic bars of Salamanca Place. Hop aboard the ferry to Mona or settle in for waterfront dinner on Hobart’s floating pier. Further afield the Coal Valley vineyards, winding bends of the Channel and convict tales of the Tasman Peninsula are just a short drive away.

Stay at Lenna of Hobart and we’ll invite you into a story beginning in the 1860s, when foundations were laid from local sandstone cut from Princes Park next door. Each handmade brick holds a piece of the past. Each room has a story to tell, wrapped in National Trust-classified walls. Hear whispers of grand parties beneath chandeliers still present, and climb the turret where former owner Alexander McGregor kept vigilant watch for his returning ships.

The restored mansion is listed on the Tasmanian Heritage Register as a superb example of early colonial architecture. The delicate restoration preserves Lenna of Hobart’s past while affording generous luxuries of today.

Staying at Lenna of Hobart is about a rich experience in our capital. Take home your own snippet of Hobart’s early maritime history. Let traditional elegance blend effortlessly with modern comforts. Then step outside knowing you’re in a location as enviable in the 1800s as it is today.
