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... More

Thankyou very much for the lovely review of our accommodation. So many of our guests make the same comment... wishing they could extend their stay in Richmond. There is so much to see and do in our beautiful, historic town and it does indeed make an excellent base for discovering the wonders of Southern Tasmania! Kind regards, Simone More

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... More

We stayed overnight after arriving in Tasmania. Great venue and made to feel very welcome. The cottage had three rooms including the large bathroom and shower. Good facilities and nearby pub for dinner.

We stayed at the Richmond Barracks for an overnight stay on the 14/01/2016 while we traveled the east coast of Tasmania. We were warmly welcomed on arrival by Simone and were shown to "The Retreat". The kitchen/living room was very well appointed (2 comfortable couches, small dining table etc), extremely clean, pressed linen and fresh overall appearance and smell. The... More

From the moment we pulled up, we knew that we would like this place. Simone and Matthew were so friendly and welcoming. The room (Lady Esther Cottage) is a very well appointed 2 bedroom cottage. Our son took the upstairs room (2 single beds with separate toilet) and we took the downstairs room (queen bed with ensuite). The provisions for... More

We did not have a hotel booked beforehand, but thankfully there was vacancy here. We were instantly impressed with the friendliness and hospitality shown by the owner (Simone), her son and her dog! We were... More

Warm welcome from Simone and her son Matthew. Accommodation ticked all boxes for cleanliness, homely, the grounds are well appointed and great to sit and read. Close to all Richmond historical sites and great for walking, exercise. All cottages were sooo appealing. Loads of character, whistle clean and comfortable for those wet days. Wonderful location to have a bike and... More
