“Great location, great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

My fiancé and I stayed at The Lenna for 4 nights over the Queen's birthday long weekend. We had a fantastic time. The location was amazing and as we arrived on a Saturday we wanted to hit the Salamanca markets immediately. We were able to drop our car off in the carpark before midday and although our room wasn't ready at that time, we got a call about an hour later to say we could check in early. It is only a 1 minute walk to Salamanca Place and an abundance of restaurants and bars. The hotel is a beautiful mix of older charm on the outside but with lovely modern rooms on the inside. The hotel bar was also a great place for a nightcap with the fire going and all the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. I would recommend The Lenna to anyone visiting Hobart without hesitation. You won't be disappointed.

Lenna felt like a B&B with professional staff and I have a horror of B&Bs!

The staff were all friendly and accommodating and the room (superior water facing room) was profoundly fine. Not great, not terribly but really, really fine. No robes or slippers, *really* uncomfortable bed but good size, nice bathroom and delightful view. Very clean also.

The common areas are not great - the old mansion half is what you'd except but the newer front wing is pretty unappealing. The stairs had an M.C. Escher feel and the decor and surrounds felt very dated.

Continental buffet breakfast was pretty good - exactly the same thing both days but tasty enough.

I would not return to Lenna but could see the property suiting people who don't mind staying at B&B type properties but who are looking for extras like 24-hour reception and room service.

Hi camilla197,

Thanks for the review and we are sorry that Lenna of Hobart was not the kind of property you enjoy.

We are glad you enjoyed our rooms. We have recently finished a full refurbishment of our rooms over the last 3 years. Sorry you found the bed uncomfortable, if you can contact us and let us know your room number and we can look into this further as our beds are quite new.

We are also happy to advise that we are looking at doing some work on the accommodation wing atrium to make them more modern and we have some exciting plans for this.

Good to see you enjoyed our continental breakfast. We do run a continental breakfast 7 days and we also have a new full a la carte breakfast menu which has received some great feedback.

Again thanks for the review. Please keep an eye on our website to see our developments and we hope to be able to welcome you back again.

Kind Regards
Justin

A regular on business and pleasure to Hobart I have stayed in most of the major hotels over the last 6 years but exclusively in the last 2 years I choose to stay at the Lenna. Why? because its simply the besy in my view. Friendly and very helpful and accomodating, great rooms and view and good food. What more can you ask for at such reasonable prices right in the heart of Salamanca !

Beautiful view of the estuary, great location just round the corner from the bar district and the Salamanca market, a few minutes from the shops, and in the other direction the quaint Battery Point area. An easy, scenic twenty minute walk to the university was good exercise before and after a day's work. The rooms are large and comfortable with a good range of TV channels, good lighting, and warm.

We particularly liked the fact that we had a heater not air conditioning! The buildings were lovely- a shame we did not have a view from our early bird special booking. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Dear Kate662014,

Thanks very much for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry your room didn't have a view. I am not sure what room type you booked, however, we do have a range of different rooms some of which offer views of Mount Wellington, the waterfront or over Princes Park.

Hope to see you back next time.

The rooms are comfortable, clean and well stocked. I had an entry level Queen bed room which was quite spacious and had a modern, renovated bathroom. The main part of the hotel is in an old building with open fire places and a nice bar. The accommodation seems to be in a slightly newer building. Great lift access to the car park and less than 5 minutes walk to the restaurants of Salamanca or the weekend markets.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a great view so if you want this remember to ask for it.

Dear GKD60,

Thanks for the positive review and wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Our queen rooms do represent great value and of course you can't beat our location!

The main building of Lenna is a beautiful maintained mansion built in 1874 with the accommodation wing being built in 1974. Glad you made use of our complimentary parking also.

Look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind Regards
Justin

Absolutely loved our stay here. We stayed in the harbour view king room. Huge room with a great view. Hotel is in a great location in Battery Point at the top of Salamanca (best place in Hobart. Less than 5 mins to the harbour too.

Room Tip: Harbour view king rooms are huge!! Well worth the extra $$
