The Henry Jones Art Hotel

Address - view on map
25 Hunter Street
Hobart, TAS 7000



The Henry Jones Art Hotel, an ingenious mix of contemporary design elements with traditional building structures and artworks installed throughout, is Australia’s first and only dedicated Art Hotel. Standing on Hobart’s waterfront, a row of historic warehouses dating from the 1820s and a former IXL jam factory have been transformed into an enthralling first class hotel showcasing the work of Tasmania’s finest visual artists. The Henry Jones Art Hotel is also within easy walking distance to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and the University Art School.

The Henry Jones Art Hotel has won over 30 major accolades including “Best Overall Hotel in Australia” at the 2005 AHA National Awards, two Australian Tourism Awards and multiple international awards from Conde Nast Traveller.


The Henry Jones Art Hotel is right on Hobart’s harbour-front so most of the 56 rooms have immediate harbour and water views. From your room, watch fishing trawlers slip quietly into view just beneath your window. Other rooms overlook the stunning IXL Atrium and reveal glimpses of the old jam factory interior. Rest assured that the Henry Jones has raised the bar to new heights on the strength of its commitment to offering delegates a personal level of service and style found only in this small luxury hotel on Hobart’s historic waterfront.

Conference facilities

From large events for up to 300 delegates in the magnificent IXL Atrium or for smaller functions, The Henry Jones Art Hotel with its award winning style, can easily cater for even the most discerning delegate. The Jones & Co Room is a majestic function room located on the Hotel’s first floor that caters for meetings, private dining and special events for up to 120 delegates.

The IXL Atrium comprising 780 pieces of glass tensioned by stainless steel cable and supported by a Tasmanian Oak frame, at three storeys high, is one of the largest glass atriums of its type in the Southern Hemisphere. Award-winning architecture is sensitively integrated into the fabric of the original building, and whilst revealing glimpses of the old jam factory interior, this most contemporary space must surely be Tasmania’s most striking event venue for up to 300 delegates.

Waterfront experiences

In Tasmania you can build an experience from any combination of scenery, adventure, history, relaxation, fine food, art and culture. The capital, Hobart, is an extraordinary city with an enchanting blend of nature, culture, history and lifestyle.

The Henry Jones Art Hotel is adjacent to numerous waterfront restaurants, including its own fine dining establishment, serving delicious cool-climate wines, renowned local beers and mouth watering fresh food, including seafood landed straight from the pristine waters that surround the State. On Saturdays, Hobart’s unique Salamanca Market is open for business, while nearby Salamanca Place offers visitors an opportunity to view and purchase the world-class work of painters, glassmakers, jewellers, potters and wood workers, inspired by their exceptional surroundings.

Just beyond the waterfront, beneath the spectacular backdrop of Mount Wellington, theatres, galleries, heritage parks and gardens are all welcoming distractions.
