MACq 01, Hobart
This fabulous hotel is so thoughtfully designed I didn't want to leave. Located close to Salamanca & a wide range of other eateries we stayed in a Hunter St room which was large, very clean & comfortable. From arrival up the storied stairs all the way into your character themed room the wonderful stories of Hobart & Australia are on display. Inside the room there is also a coffee table book to read detailing all the other room stories of the hotel. Exceptionally wonderful staff are very happy to engage their guests & proved very knowledgeable about Hobart in particular the best time to go up to Mt Wellington. The public areas are very spacious & welcoming with a fast working lift that takes you to wide accommodation corridors with ample opportunity to see the views. There were three things about the actual room that were a standout for me & which elevated this hotel to more than just a room to base yourself in. 1) Fresh milk in the fridge, actual real milk!! As we got low a new bottle was provided so we were never without. 2) There is an onsite laundry room for guests. It is something very much appreciated during a winters trip & why more modern hotels are not providing this service is a mystery. 3) Bathroom amenities that were provided were plentiful & luxurious with a rich botanical smell. The towels, so large & luxurious, were amply supplied. You are of course asked to hang & re-use them as is standard, however to have a good selection was such a relief. I absolutely loved visiting Hobart & cannot wait to experience another storied chapter here.
