The Rox is no ordinary stay. It’s an ode to the evolution of Hobart Town.
In the heart of Hobart’s Midtown, The Rox is your luxe escape. Standing proud amongst convict-built churches and former carriageways characteristic of old Hobart Town, The Rox is a blend of old and new. The existing building dates back to 1880; its new modern sister arrived in 2021. From the latest rooftop penthouse to historical apartments, The Rox is all about inner-city style.
The storied neighbourhood is home to late-night eateries, bustling cafés, craft breweries, art galleries and independent shops. The Rox sits right on the doorstep of the city’s happening quarters while offering a private sanctuary at the day’s end.
The Rox is a reflection of this ever-evolving city, with four distinct apartments to choose from. The Elizabeth and Alexander Apartments are steeped in early-Hobart history and the Rox Penthouse and Rox Apartment are within the new luxurious development. Meticulously curated, each apartment is appointed with the works of Tasmanian designers, artists and potters.
Come evening, enjoy special access to acclaimed waterfront wine bar, Institut Polaire, or opt for dining on site at the coveted Omotenashi; revered chefs Lachie Colville and Sophie Pope deliver an intimate culinary journey that celebrates Tasmania’s best seasonal fare. Due to demand, advance bookings essential.
The Rox Penthouse
Do Hobart in style in your own exclusive rooftop terrace penthouse. Natural light abounds in this lofty space with neighbouring heritage and cityscape views. The self-contained spacious haven accommodates up to five guests, with two bedrooms (and a den) and two bathrooms. Feel a world above Hobart, sipping bubbles or dining on the terrace, while only a few steps from its beating heart.
The Rox Apartment
Head up to level two of The Rox and open the door to your architect-designed private apartment. This deluxe stay is made for two, with its king-size bed topped with French linen and inviting bath. There is a well-appointed kitchen and a balcony off the master bedroom – perfect for morning coffee and chatting over plans for the day ahead.
The Elizabeth Apartment
Wrap yourself in Hobart’s history with a stay in the Elizabeth. With room for four guests, the two-bedroom space holds 200 years of Hobart’s past. Witness the old, with its exposed bricks and lofty ceilings carefully melded with modern comforts and elegance.
The Alexander Apartment
Within the Alexander, raw brick and arched windows whisper stories of days when Scotch College hummed within the thick walls. The two-bedroom apartment has been lovingly restored to retain its old-school character yet provides contemporary comforts that feel like home. Walk the original timber floorboards and feel connected to the Hobart of yesterday, with vibrant Midtown just beyond the front door.
