vibrant city of Hobart. We were captivated by the Mövenpick brand for
this hotel as it befittingly has a 70-year culinary legacy and is
renowned for delivering an authentic and memorable guest experience.

Tasmania’s rich culture, while still provide travellers with a perfect
launch pad to explore Hobart and the wider region," said Global Premium
