New boutique hotel Moss opens in Hobart

Hobart has welcomed a new boutique hotel situated in the historic docks of Salamanca Place in Georgian sandstone warehouses.

Moss offers 41-rooms boutique hotel where guests can choose from four rooms types – Bower, Grove, Grove Balcony and Grove Bath.

Showcased throughout the hotel are the works of local artisans, from Andrew Bull’s Tasmanian Blackwood joinery found in the bedheads and bedside tables of the guest rooms and shelves of the common spaces, to Hannah Lorenz’s bespoke cushions which are inspired by the colours, textures and patterns found in Tasmania’s natural landscape.

Tasmanian timbers are used in Matt Prince’s Oak Noon Chairs and Dowell Tables in the guest rooms and Scott Van Tuil’s Blackwood Loft Lounges, Oak coffee tables and Tasmanian Sandstone side tables in the common spaces.

“I always knew that these old warehouse buildings would lend themselves to a great hotel conversion, it was just a matter of waiting for the right moment, which is now,” said Peter Behrakis, managing director of owners The Behrakis Group.

The hotel is opening in two stages, Moss 39 being the first with Moss 25 in September.
