I recently stayed in "The Cellar" at Richmond Barracks and loved my 3 day stay. Located only 100 meters from the Main Street in town it was position perfect. From my arrival I was warmly welcomed by owner Simone, who was extremely helpful in providing me with information about the many things to see and do in the beautiful town...

When in Tasmania I am always drawn to Richmond, just 15 minutes to Hobart it is a beautiful town with fantastic architecture, quaint shops and a great village atmosphere. The Barracks is a well appointed set of appartments dating back to the 1800's. Very clean and comfortable with nothing left to wish for. Hosts are very friendly and the breakfast...

So pleased we chose this bed and breakfast to stay at; we originally planned to stay only one night but changed it to two after seeing how lovely and comfortable the accommodation would be.

We were so pleased to find Richmond Barracks, only a five minute walk to the heart of Richmond, 25 minute drive to Hobart and in a peaceful location. "The Retreat" was a well appointed unit for a couple to stay in, including a bedroom with a single bed and a queen size bed, a spotlessly clean, modern bathroom with a...

Nothing could have been warmer than the welcome we received to this immaculately kept property. We booked Lady Esther Cottage and were thrilled by the presentation and the facilities.

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
