Set in the docks of Salamanca Place in Georgian sandstone warehouses, Moss is a brand new boutique hotel in Hobart.
Formerly a watering hole, later a brothel and then a popular nightclub, this historic site has a vibrant and intriguing history attached to it.
Combining two buildings and opening in two stages, Moss now offers 41 design-driven accommodation rooms in the heart of Hobart’s vibrant culinary and cultural centre.
The first stage of the multi-million-dollar project saw Moss 39 open earlier this month with 20 rooms, while Moss 25 is set to open in September with the remaining 21 rooms.
The hotel is ideal for high-end corporate incentive stays and offers four room types, each featuring hints of greenery, raw timber and sandstone.
The latest business venture for the family owned Behrakis Group, Moss has been designed by Ganche Chua from renowned Tasmanian architects Circa Morris Nunn.
Nunn was tasked with reimagining the interior of the historic buildings and in doing so has transformed Moss into an inner-city sanctuary.
“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 The Behrakis Group managing directory Peter Behrakis.
With Moss’ location within walking to number of the city’s acclaimed restaurants, guests are encouraged to explore the surrounding food and beverage offering.
Guests are also spoilt for choice at Salamanca Place, a thriving cultural and hospitality precinct offering up some of Tasmania’s finest produce.
