The breeze along Hobart CBD’s waterfront carries a thousand captivating stories of those that were here before us. In this place, the Mouheneenner people fished and forged dreams in the Derwent shallows; the first Europeans set foot ashore Van Diemen’s Land and an industry was borne amid the bustle of Hunter Island. Today, this precinct is home to MACq 01 where the stories of these colorful characters are shared in a setting of informal luxury. This a storytelling hotel.
Each of our 114 relaxed rooms reflects one of the five Tasmanian character traits through its design and story, so you’ll really begin to understand what makes us Tasmanian.
Most early migrants to Tasmania, whether convict, bounty or full fare, travelled in very unglamorous wooden ships that were leaky, overcrowded and required constant pumping. You’ll be pleased to know the facilities we offer are significantly improved from those early travel conditions, but we’ll never forgot those hearty and resilient folk who would become the pioneers of the Tasmanian spirit. Facilities include free Wi-Fi, valet parking and gym.
Old Wharf Restaurant – Led by Head Chef Simon Pockran, locally sourced ingredients are delivered in a menu that hinges on Tasmania’s pure produce.
Lounge – The Lounge is our special place – it’s open fire is our storytelling nucleus. A local stonesmason crafted the fireplace with shared stories in mind. A pre-dinner crisp white with Pacific oysters often encourages fables to flow.
The Story Bar – Our bar team offer everything from draught beer to the finest wine and spirits in a refined watering hole, adorned with newspaper headlines from decades past.
