Reviewed 6 August 2014

Fourteen years ago my husband and I awaited the results of the ever so close presidential election of 2000 at the Lenna Hotel. When we decided to return to Tasmania earlier this year - the Lenna was the only hotel we seriously considered. This stay, as the was the previous, was wonderful. The location could not be better. You are right next to the Salamanca Market (on Saturdays) and in the heart of the harbour area and the major tourist attractions of the older part of Hobart. Free parking. Very good food, although our service on the night of our arrival was way too slow. You are also near the Battery area - many special buildings to look at, and beautiful water pretty much all around you. Very nice room. We were glad for the air conditioning when we were there. So many places within walking distance to shop and eat that decisions are hard to make. Really recommended.

Hi Lori M,

Thanks for staying with us and taking your time to post your review.

We are pleased to hear you kept us in mind after so many years! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and agree our location really is second to none so it's good to hear you made the most of it and explored all of Hobart has to offer.

We are also glad you enjoyed the free parking, it is great to be able to offer this free parking to hotel guests literally metres from the lively Salamanca area and Hobart's waterfront.

Thanks also for taking the time to dine in Alexanders Restaurant, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the food however we do apologise you found the service on the night to be slow.

Thanks again Lori M, we hope to welcome you back to Lenna of Hobart in the future.

Kind regards,

Florence

I have stayed here many times over many years. It's my favourite hotel in Hobart and one of the best I've stayed in anywhere. The rooms are large and the service excellent.
Now also has free Wifi. Staff are also excellent

Room Tip: No bad ones. You get either views down the Derwent or views of Mt Wellington

Hi ChesterM28,

Thanks very much for the review, it is always great to receive positive feedback from our regular guests.

We are glad you enjoy the extra space of our hotel rooms, it is great to be able to provide guests with a lounge setting area to sit and not just the bed as it is in many hotels. We are also particularly happy to hear the feedback regarding our staff customer service as we pride ourselves on our friendly service here at Lenna of Hobart.

Thanks again ChesterM28, we hope to see you again soon.

Kind regards,

Florence

My husband and I had a great stay at the Lenna, lived up to its reviews - comfortable, clean, charming, friendly staff and very well situated to Hobart sights and restaurants. Lovely garden setting and easy walking to many attractions.

We were only at the hotel for one night, but found it comfortable, convenient and well staffed.

The room was spacious, quiet and dark with the curtains drawn which was great. Linens and towels were all spotless.

Cooked breakfast in the morning was excellent. We would love to stay again.

Stayed here on a weekend trip to Hobart and it was perfect. It's a heritage building with character - but the important things, like the bathroom, beds and televisions, have all been updated. We spent most of our time out and about, but it was always easy to access and offered plenty of parking. It's in prime position to access everything that Salamanca has to offer - including those famous markets.Our room had a gorgeous view and to cap it all off, the staff were genuinely friendly and welcoming. I suspect it's the best value accommodation you'll find in Hobart.

Stayed there as we were attending a 40th birthday. All other guests stayed at same property and we were all really impressed with the property. Fantastic location, so close to all that is Hobart and being in such a grand old building just added to it being so wonderful - don't worry the rooms have been fully upgraded. We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Hobart - we loved it!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in a Park View room - quiet and dark in the mornings so you could enjoy that lovely sleep...

Hi Nathan J,

Thanks for posting a review.

We are very glad you and the rest of your party enjoyed your recent stay with us. Our location is great and the Lenna mansion is such a beautiful building; I am pleased you loved it as much as we do.

Our Park View Rooms are very popular as they are quiet and have a lovely outlook over the Lenna Gardens and Princes Park. Other room types look over Mount Wellington or Constitution Dock and the waterfront area and all have been fully refurbished.

It’s great to hear you plan on staying again when you return, we look forward to seeing you then!

Kind regards,

Florence

Lenna is a nice hotel. The building is beautiful and it has a nice heritage feel to it. The rooms are clean but dated. The interior of the hotel is unattractive and open to the elements which for Hobart is strange. The restaurant is lovely though as is the reception and bar area. Overall I feel the hotel is fine but the location is great being right beside Salamanca and close proximity to the city centre.

Hi daviddelaney70,

Thanks for the four star review!

It is good to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Lenna and made the most of our excellent location.

All our rooms are fully refurbished with the last of these finished as recently as September last year so I am sorry to hear you found them to be dated. In regards to the atrium we do have plans to upgrade this area dramatically in the near future. Although it is open, the area has three walls and a ceiling which shelter the rooms. We also ensure powerful heaters are in all rooms keeping all our guests nice and warm on cold Hobart nights.

I am glad you liked Alexanders Restaurant and the Chandelier Bar and hope you were able to dine with us during your time in Hobart.

We hope to see you again next time you are in Hobart.

Kind regards,

Florence
