Tasmania’s Salamanca Wharf Hotel has opened its doors offering guests a boutique contemporary apartment hotel accommodation experience in the heart of Hobart’s premier entertainment precinct.
Designed and built from scratch between two original John Lee Archer 1840 sandstone warehouses, the Salamanca Wharf Hotel is now open.
Paying homage to Tasmania’s unique location as the key international gateway to Antarctica, Salamanca Wharf Hotel’s interiors are inspired by its connection to this majestic and beautiful frozen continent. Crisp and vibrant Antarctic colour shades of blue, aqua, golden orange and russet are reflected throughout the unique décor with the extraordinary photography of Antarctic adventurer Laurent Dick showcased throughout the hotel rooms. Bespoke furniture, crafted from local Tasmanian timber and specifically commissioned, adorns every room creating a depth of character to the brand new hotel apartments.
Located in Salamanca Place, the boutique hotel has 22 apartments comprising four loft penthouses (pictured), fifteen one bedroom apartments and three studio apartments.
“Entering one of our apartments is like being invited into the beautiful and comfortable sanctuary of an adventurous friend,” said Shane Pritchard, owner and general manager.
“Massive floor to ceiling window doors in each room can be thrown open to let in the famous Tasmanian air and we’ve stocked our fully-equipped kitchens with the best Tasmanian wine, beers, cheese and chocolate.”
The Hotel’s Ground Floor is home to Castray Esplanade Food + Wine, owned by well-known Tasmanian foodies Michael Roberts and Karen Goodwin Roberts, author of Tasmania’s Picnics in Paradise.
