The Henry Jones Art Hotel
At the Henry Jones Art Hotel history and art collide. Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouses have been thoughtfully reimagined as Australia’s first dedicated art hotel. Located in the Hunter Street precinct, the hotel blends modernity with an industrial past. Decadent elliptical spas bubble underneath rough-sawn timber trusses. Blackwood-lined boardrooms have been refashioned into stately, indulgent accommodation suites.
Through the rise and fall of industries, including Sir Henry Jones’ IXL jam empire, the harbour side location has been central to Hobart and its people. Today, the precinct hums with galleries, award-winning restaurants, bars and cafes. Hotel views capture the bustling port with kunanyi/Mount Wellington beyond.
Warm and engaging service from our curators of history and art is a hallmark of this sophisticated boutique hotel, from complimentary valet parking through to a warm Tasmanian farewell. Attention to every guest is unique – much like the 500 contemporary Tasmanian artworks lining the hotel walls.
Henry Jones represents a fusion of old and new, art and design, indulgence and discovery.
In our hotel, no room is the same. Push open the door to a world of contrasts where old meets new. Indulgent splashes of red weave with industrial rawness. Grand beams of rough-hewn timber whisper of the past, framing art of today.
Our facilities and guest services include all you’d expect from a luxury hotel, with special Tasmanian touches. Our character and excellence flows through complimentary valet parking and business facilities, to our turn-down service including T2 sleep tea and local handmade chocolates.
PEACOCK AND JONES – An intimate restaurant, housed within the charismatic sandstone of the IXL building. The understated dining experience celebrates a locally sourced menu.
LANDSCAPE RESTAURANT & GRILL – A premium dining experience featuring prize-winning John Glover landscape art and Tasmania’s finest produce cooked over a wood-fired Asado grill.
IXL LONG BAR – Our intimate bar serving up arguably the city’s best cocktail masters. Enjoy live tunes, sips and a bite from the Tasmanian-inspired small plates menu.
THE LOUNGE – Think of the private guest lounge as your own. It’s a place to enjoy breakfast, morning coffee or a glass of wine. It is your space to network, sit or take a closer look at the Tasmanian artworks featured on the lounge walls. Settle in and relax.
Our Standard Rooms are located in the former IXL Jam Factory complex. As such, they exude a warmth and character distinct to the building’s early days. Walls of original stone and timber are common, where others are wrapped in smooth plaster. Every room showcases original Tasmanian art and is equipped with an ultra-modern, translucent bathroom with generous walk-in shower. With charm, these rooms capture the Henry Jones’ legacy.
Deluxe Spa Room
Each of our Deluxe Spa Rooms feature Euro-style stainless steel and translucent glass bathrooms with an ultra-indulgent Kohler elliptical spa. This is your epicentre of relaxation. Some of these rooms have original walls of heritage stone and timber, while others are a contemporary addition to the historic jam factory. Each has its share of original art and rest assured, a generous King-sized bed. Or, twin share, on request.
Located within the original Henry Jones Ice House, the Oriental Suites have a distinct sense of stillness. Traditional Japanese design elements have been subtly weaved into soft furnishings and fabrics. There’s a harmony between the Asian accents and earthy elements of each suite’s original architecture. Views feature Hobart’s harbour or the forested slopes of Mount Wellington.
The Henry Jones Suite
Take the view of Henry. We’ll take care of your car. This was his former stately boardroom. In the early 1900s the H. Jones and Co. IXL Jam company was a bustling operation. During those early days the suite was rebuilt in art nouveau style. These were his administration offices –their soaring Tasmanian Blackwood ceilings testament to Henry’s success. The grand staircase, another distinguished statement. Today, light streams through generous harbourside windows, contrasting with Blackwood-lined walls and ceiling. The suite has a luxurious king-sized bed, original art and an elegant nod to former endeavours. Then there is the Kohler SOK overflowing spa bath. Enough said.
Like your history? The Peacock Terrace was built back in 1823. It’s the oldest standing building on ‘Old Wharf.’ The Peacock Terrace spills across two elegant levels. It features two bedrooms, a sitting room and two bathrooms. Your view frames the original landing site of Hobart’s first Europeans settlers. Today, it has colourful Sullivan’s Cove fish punts. The city of Hobart stretches to the foothills of Kunanyi / Mount Wellington beyond.
