In keeping with its growing reputation as a magnet for visitors, Hobart offers a wide range of accommodation. You will find great empathy for the city’s history with cleverly developed waterfront hotels and self-contained accommodation behind the 19th-century stone facades of former factories and warehouses.
The same can be said of accommodation in some beautifully preserved self-contained cottages and guest houses – around Battery Point, for example. There is modernity, too, in hotels, self-contained apartments and houses, many with sweeping views. Don’t discount basing yourself a little further afield; from Kingston Beach to Bellerive, Hobart Town is never far away.
