Tasmania’s only Small Luxury Hotel of the World
Tasmania’s only accredited 5 Star Hotel

Woodbridge on the Derwent is the pre-eminent historic luxury accommodation in Tasmania, offering personalised boutique accommodation near Hobart. Woodbridge is a superbly restored, 1825 convict-built riverfront Grand Mansion.

 

Woodbridge operates in the style of the grand houses of yesteryear and is less an hotel, and more an expression of warm, country hospitality. A seamless blend of rich history and modern boutique amenity, Heritage-listed Woodbridge has been described by a guest as: “like being given the keys to a friend’s country mansion”.

 

At Woodbridge you will step back in time, return to a gentler pace, breathe! Do as much or as little as you wish in the easy rhythm of yesteryear, where activity and relaxation is interspersed with the most social of all activities – food and wine.

 

And in the style of hospitality of the grand homes of yesteryear, we have great pleasure creating wonderful experiences.

 

But if you are looking for glitz, glamour, and ‘big city buzz’, we are not the place for you. If you are looking for an isolated enclave miles from everything, again, we are not the place for you. If you are looking for accommodation in the town of Woodbridge, ‘our Woodbridge’ is in the town of New Norfolk, only 25 minutes from Hobart CBD, 40 minutes from Hobart Airport and 15 minutes from MONA, but also 20-40 minutes from Mt Field & Russell Falls, the Highlands & Nant Distillery, Bonorong and Richmond.

 

Woodbridge on the Derwent is ideally placed and guests frequently settle in and make us their base for discovering all that Southern Tasmania has to offer.

A Peachy Luxury Hotel

The garden entrance to Woodbridge’s reception  via the peach tree, which canopies overhead. When we water, we have to give just the right amount of water to encourage the fruit growth, and not too much so that the fruit are sweet and tasty. We wrap aluminium foil around the trunk of the tree to stop […]
