Infused with rich history and artistic styling, this Australian hotel was created within the city of Hobart’s oldest waterfront warehouse and jam factory. Now, modern art peppers the walls in this hotel boasting 56 rooms. The hotel gets its namesake from one of Australia’s most successful businessmen, Henry Jones, who at just 12 years of age presented himself for his first day of work at George Peacock’s jam factory. From humble beginnings, working sixty hours a week, sticking labels to jam tins, Henry climbed through the ranks to eventually take over the business that would one day bear his name: H. Jones and Co. Pty. Ltd. IXL Jams.
Just two minutes from Salamanca Place, guests of The Henry Jones are also a short distance from other popular places like the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens and Cascade Brewery. The hotel's own restaurant, Henry's, offers high quality fare from locally sourced ingredients as well as an excellent breakfast menu. Next door, travelers can relax at the Jam Packed Cafe over waterfront views, proving a popular spot for both guests and the general public, who can take a seat in the atrium. The hotel's Tasmania-renowned IXL Long Bar is tended by Niall Maurici, an award-winning mixologist where guests can try fun cocktails like the “Island of Fire” or “Aviation.”
