We stayed here on our honeymoon 25 years ago and whilst the hotel has changed with new rooms and dining area the feel of the hotel has not. Go for the garden view room on the first level, the views of the garden and mountain are fantastic.

Beautiful views and amazing food

This is my second visit to the Islington. The stand outs for me were the amazing views from the room, overlooking Mt Wellington. And the amazing fresh food, prepared by in house chefs. If you stay, ensure you have dinner at the in house restaurant. Incredible food, the chefs are very talented. The staff are absolutely lovely! Very warm, welcoming and helpful. By far my favourite hotel and will be back to visit again.
