Sumary of Time stands still at this historic Hobart hotel:
- After decades of swapping hands between various owners, it returned to the family fold in 2016, when Alfred’s great-great grandson, Julian Roberts, and wife, Chaxi, bought the property then turned it into one of Hobart’s finest boutique heritage hotels.
- Two contemporary-designed Pavilions occupy an adjoining block – one sleeping two, the other eight.
- The handmade bed is king-sized and the antique native cedar furnishings complement the house’s period foundations.
- Owner Chaxi, a qualified chef who uprooted from her native Canary Islands to settle in Hobart with Julian, also runs three-hour cooking courses followed by lunch, eating what you make.
