The location and reasons to visit:
Tasmania is located 240 kilometres south of the main continent of Australia, across
the Bass Strait. The state capital is Hobart. As for reasons to visit, there aren’t
any. Okay, there are some nice lakes and mountains, but that is about it. The harbour
in Hobart is a working port and not particularly attractive.
Review of the Henry Jones Art Hotel, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia:
Actually it is quite nice. The people were friendly and helpful. I would recommend
an Oriental Sok Suite as they are large and comfortable. The bath in the one I had
looked out over the harbour, although why anyone would want to take a bath looking
at a working port I don’t know. The hotel is located in a former wharf and the exterior
is not particularly attractive.
The dinner in the restaurant was good for one night, but the restaurant was full
another night. I would have thought arriving guests would have had priority, but
apparently not. Breakfast was okay, but I prefer to be brought a pot of coffee, rather
than having to help myself for each cup.
The location of the hotel is excellent for exploring Hobart, but why anyone would
want to I do not know. There really isn’t much there. The Tasmanian wine was good,
The hotel bar.
A pint of “Golden”.
Getting drunk now, taking pictures of anything.
Even more drunk.
