Hotel Grand Chancellor offers stunning waterfront views overlooking the Hobart Harbour and Constitution Dock. HGC is just a short walk away from popular attractions such as Salamanca Place, the Markets, Battery Point, the MONA Ferry and the CBD.
HGC is one of Hobart’s largest hotels and is the perfect place to sit back, relax and take in the delights of Australia’s second oldest city. Meet for drinks in The Atrium Bar or reserve a table at the fashionable Restaurant Tasman and enjoy Tasmania's finest regional ingredients and superb harbour views.
Hobart is Tasmania's capital city and the second oldest capital in Australia, after Sydney. Located at the entrance to the Derwent River, its well-preserved surrounding bushland reaches close to the city centre and beaches line the shores of the river and estuary beyond.
With its captivating history, picturesque waterways, rugged mountains and gourmet experiences, the city has something for everyone.
Award-winning restaurants offer fine dining experiences using the best Tasmanian produce recognised by the world's best chefs, while on the waterfront punts and fishmongers sell the freshest seafood straight from the Southern Ocean.
Enjoy the contrast of elegant heritage sandstone alongside modern architecture. Explore Salamanca Place, a short walk from the waterfront, with its galleries, theatres, craft shops and restaurants in 1830s Georgian warehouses and on Saturdays enjoy the food and entertainment of Salamanca Market, Australia's best outdoor market.
