Luxurious Pavilions
Reviewed 2 months ago

The Mona pavilions are luxurious with beautiful views over the Derwent. We stayed in one named Charles. It was large and spacious and extremely well stocked with wine, cheese, chocolate, juice and fruit. There is also some original artwork on display. The bedrooms are airy and comfortable and we were particularly impressed by the sunken bath which overlooked the Derwent River. It was a short walk, up the river bank, to the breakfast room. My first breakfast there was a disaster. Undrinkable Earl Grey tea and something called a slow cooked egg, which proved inedible. How do you even cook an egg so that the white remains liquid and the yolk is solid? Armed with this experience, the following day, I ordered a pot of tea and an omelette, both of which were acceptable. All the staff were helpful, friendly and obliging.

Disappointing
Reviewed 2 months ago

Just spent an evening in one of the pavilions to celebrate my 70th birthday. We ordered dinner from room service and alas the fish was cold. Breakfast bacon,sausage and mushroom were cold and the blunt knives made cutting the food difficult. We inadvertently used a tea towel and after checkout we were informed that we would be charged $20 as the item was actually for sale! Charging $750 per night we felt rather disappointed by the experience. However, all the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. Decor and amenities in the apartment were excellent.

Relaxing and beautiful

The Mona Pavillion was a delightful surprise.
The accommodation, excellent, two big rooms, two big bathrooms and self contained.
The museum, is eye opening, unusual and challenges ones perception of art. Do not expect contemporary here.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of this place.

The Charles
Reviewed 3 months ago

This was our third time staying at MONA. The Charles is practically the same as our first Pavillion, the Brett. It's beautifully set out, spacious, with fabulous views over the river Derwent. Great bath overlooking the river. You can also use the great MONA pool and gym facilities, as well, of course, visiting the museum. Very peaceful dependent on your neighbours (we lucked out this time). Breakfast is included and, as always, was really special. However, things are starting to look pretty tired and worn and that undermines the luxurious experience we've felt on previous stays. Staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. We'd definitely stay again, although our preference is the Roy. Take the opportunity to enjoy the pavilion before they are relocated/disappear for the new hotel.

Dated, Tired need renovating and poor value for money
Reviewed 4 months ago

Great location next to the MONA, the pavilions are tired, need better maintenance and are victim to their tech based facilities (most of which don’t work) on our stay the A/C (granted a very hot day) TV and internet and coffee machine was problematic! MiniBar/Stocked fridge overpriced ($26 for cheese!) Oh and they charge for a ferry ride to travel to the location when charging >$1000 a night to stay. Shame has potential to be spectacular but we found it lacklustre and were disappointed.
