Hobart hotel tops luxury list

Luxury magazine Gourmet Traveller has released its highly anticipated list of best Australian hotels – and Hobart’s MACq 01 is at the top. The striking waterfront hotel managed to stave off stiff competition to be named Large Hotel of the Year. As the magazine glowingly wrote: “Large hotels needn’t be predictable. Hobart’s MACq 01, designed by heritage experts Circa Morris Nunn to resemble a riverside wharf, has a distinctive personality…everything feels custom-made and handpicked for this inn beside the Derwent River.” The magazine was most impressed that MACq 01 encapsulated the island state’s unique personality: “It is Tasmania writ large in wood, steel and glass; a 114-room hotel that pours its island soul into every detail.” The hotel, which opened its doors a year ago, is also known as the ‘storytelling hotel’ with each of its rooms telling the tale of one remarkable Tasmanian who influenced the state. Champion cricketer, Ricky Ponting, is included in that honour roll.
