Tucked away at the top of the stairs is a cosy retreat of a room that is lovingly designed to be the perfect hideaway.
The intimate space is dressed in comfort colours that wrap around you with warmth and love and offers a view through the attic window that takes you straight to the top of the mountain.
There’s even a marble bathroom with rain shower and bath tucked into this ingenious space.
The epitome of grand living at The Islington Hotel is found within the comfort of The Signature Room, a Beidermeier themed suite commanding an entire corner of the original house, whose centre-piece is a huge Austro-Hungarian Empire bed facing across from the fireplace.
Luxurious furnishings upholstered in lush chocolate silks from Jim Thompson complete the look. On one side French doors lead to the front English inspired garden while on the other, is a luxurious marble bathroom with heated floor deep bath, separate toilet and rain shower stall.
Located within the original building dating back to 1847, the three Regency rooms epitomise the Tasmanian heritage that gives Islington its unique character. Settled in history, steeped in modern conveniences and enhanced by a stellar art collection, the three Regency Rooms are described by the view from their silk shrouded windows.
