My husband and I stayed one night at the Richmond Barracks in February before an early flight from Hobart back to Sydney. Our short visit to Richmond and our stay exceeded our expectations. Our room was lovely and the town was so pretty. Only issue was lack of restaurants for dinner.

My husband, daughter and I stay at The Richmond Barracks for one night to attend a wedding held nearby. I was given a warm welcome by Simone, who showed me through The Retreat (one bedroom unit).

From the moment you make a booking you will know that this B&B is going to be wonderful. Simone is a great hostess and the cottage we stayed in had absolutely everything one could need for an overnight stay. Perfect if leaving early on a plane out of Hobart - no traffic from Richmond to Airport. Will definitely stay again...

Simone was such a lovely hostess and went out of her way to our every need and endless questions. We would love to go back one day. The cottages were delightful very clean and comfy.

You get your own cottage in a courtyard setting. One of Richmond's historic buildings has been sensitively and cleverly extended to provide really interesting accommodation. We were in The Retreat: bathroom, living room and bedroom. We were there for only one night, but it would be a great place for a longer stay. Well equipped kitchen, though packed into a...

We stayed for 2 nights with our family of 3 teenagers. They were very impressed with everything about the Richmond Barracks especially 'chilling out' in the garden and the short walk to the famous Richmond Bridge. Save some time for the drive out from Hobart, there are plenty of wineries and berry picking opportunities on the way even though it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Richmond Barracks is centrally located in a quiet, peaceful pocket of the beautiful Georgian town of Richmond. An easy walk to the famous Richmond Bridge and Richmond's main street, filled with excellent dining options, antique stores and Tasmanian craft shops. Relax and enjoy the spacious sun filled gardens that surround the beautiful cottages on our property. The Colonial officers who originally lived at the Barracks certainly did not enjoy the superb comforts you'll find here today. Built in 1830, using local convict bricks, this charming National Trust Registered property is a restful haven for the discerning traveller. Choose between any of these three purpose built accommodations: Lady Esther Cottage: two storey, self contained family accommodation, sleeps four comfortably. The Retreat: bedroom, lounge, kitchenette, bathroom, sleeps two/three comfortably. The Cellar: studio with kitchenette and bathroom sleeps two only. You'll be comfortable and warm with electric blankets and heaters in all bathrooms, and efficient reverse cycle air conditioning/heating in all cottages. Free WiFi is provided throughout the property. A hearty, continental breakfast is available at an additional charge. Off street parking is provided. ... more   less
