There are few things in Hobart that can date themselves back to 1875 – the city was only incorporated in 1881, so technically the Macquarie Manor Hotel is older than the city around it – but there is a hotel on Macquarie Street that can. With Edwardian era architecture, lofty ceilings and large rooms, the Macquarie Manor Hotel is the perfect place to stay in town – they’re just a five minute walk from the water and the Salamanca Markets – and as good a venue for a meal as well. They specialise in Australian cuisine from the grill, which they match with whiskeys and beers to create a dining experience the combines old world, colonial era charm with modern fixtures and fittings. If you’re looking for a hotel in Hobart that will guarantee a decadent and relaxing time for you and your party, then the Macquarie Manor Hotel is the place for you. Book ahead, though, as they will get crowded, especially if you are only looking for meal and not a whole weekend.
