this was a birthday present from my husband - 4 nights in Esmond. the pavilion was nice, comfortable, well appointed, but i still have a few gripes. we arrived later than advised due to flight problems, so we got there around 11pm instead of 9.30. it was hard to find where to go to check in. it was a dark and stormy night... and we'd been travelling for hours. we eventually went and knocked on our neighbour's door, and finally someone from reception found us. the pavilion was one of the new ones, and was tastefully decorated. however the sheets almost seemed starched, and were so noisy and stiff whenever i moved that i spent the first night on the couch. next gripe was the teapot - same in the restaurant. very pretty, but they only hold 1.5 small cups, and when i want tea, i want a mug. the tea in the pavilion was in little containers. i would have been much happier with some Twinings tea bags and a mug. finally, there's no apparent heating in the bathroom, and that seems like an oversight in Tassie. it was not our first visit to Hobart, so we knew the location, but a car would be a must if you are staying. the restaurant was good and the staff were helpful. the museum was NOT interesting to us, in fact there was little there i liked, and a lot i disliked. this of course is a very personal view, and others may love it. it's certainly challenging. we enjoyed the Moorilla wines and the Moo brew.
