Australia’s first Mövenpick hotel has welcomed its first guests in Hobart, Tasmania, today (Jan 21) on one of the city’s principal heritage streetscapes near the waterfront.

Accor Pacific CEO, Simon McGrath, said the 221-room Mövenpick Hotel Hobart was a warm and contemporary property that promises to delight guests with Tasmanian nature design-inspired boutique interiors, fine food and wine experiences at Tesoro Modern Italian restaurant, a daily Chocolate Hour, and an assortment of other Mövenpick brand signature offerings.

“Mövenpick Hotel Hobart transcends the traditional hotel experience by masterfully blending the brand’s Swiss heritage with a premium hospitality experience,” he said. “We’re so excited to share this stunning property with guests visiting Hobart from other parts of Tasmania and Australia.

“Accor is planning more locations for Mövenpick across the Pacific and we believe this premium brand will quickly gain recognition for its culinary and service excellence,” McGrath said.

He said the Jaws Architects-designed hotel exemplifies Tasmanian contemporary design with richly layered textures and a locally-inspired colour palette.

Wall panelling, furniture, fabrics and colours were carefully curated to ensure they reflect the rhythm, patterns, movement and tonal qualities of the Tasmanian landscape.

All guestrooms are situated on floors 3 to 18, with many providing panoramic views and connecting guests with Hobart’s spectacular natural setting, while the common areas, designed by global design agency Greymatters, are located on the first two floors.

Guests are welcomed to the hotel in a beautifully appointed lobby on the ground floor, which flows into the hotel’s Tesoro Modern Italian restaurant – positioned to be one of Hobart’s finest food and wine experiences offering guests and visitors the very finest in modern Italian cuisine as well as locally inspired signature dishes.

Mövenpick Hotel Hobart also boasts a flexible function space for up to 100 guests, which can also be divided into two smaller meeting rooms, along with a pre-event area and full bar, while both business and leisure travellers will enjoy the hotel’s modern gym.
