Honours pile-up for Hobart hotel

It has been quite a fortnight for The Tasman, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Hobart, with the luxury hotel collecting a swag of honours.

Adding to its recent string of accolades, the hotel was named Metro Accommodation of the Year at the Tasmanian Hospitality Awards for Excellence.

The Tasman also achieved two silver awards for Best Deluxe Accommodation and Best Bar Experience at hotel bar Mary Mary.

Signature restaurant Peppina, meanwhile, collected gold awards for Best Restaurant in a Hotel or Accomodation Venue and Wine List Of The Year for the best list in the state,

The Tasmanian Hospitality Awards for Excellence celebrate and acknowledge outstanding achievements within the state’s hospitality industry.

These wins followed hot on the heels of The Tasman’s recognition in Condé Nast Traveler 2023 Readers’ Choice Awards, where The Tasman was voted Tasmania’s best hotel and recognised as one of the top 10 hotels in Australia and New Zealand by the global luxury travel bible.

Earlier this year, Peppina, helmed by star chef Massimo Mele, also took out the top honour for Tasmania in the annual Gourmet Traveller Restaurant Awards.

Just a few days ago, Peppina was recognised as having Australia’s best listing of Tasmanian wines, and the best wine list in the state, at the Australian Wine List of the Year Awards - recognition for the work of sommelier Michael Fisher (image, top).

“In just two weeks our team has enjoyed enormous success at some of the most prestigious awards in our industry," said The Tasman general manager Stephen Morahan.

"It is such an honour to be recognised for our quality offering at The Tasman, which has become a true standout for the region.

”I congratulate our talented head sommelier Michael Fisher and our team at Peppina for their dedication and passion in crafting an outstanding wine list that is leading the way in Tasmanian hospitality."

Regular readers will know that I am quite cynical about many of these rewards, but it is quite a run of success for the 152-room hotel (above) that only opened in December 2021. 

It is the first Luxury Collection by Marriott International property in Australia and is located at Parliament Square overlooking Hobart waterfront,
