5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We finished our 15 night tour of Tasmania here for two nights and honestly can't express how lovely it was. Spotlessly clean,warm and comfortable, lovely crisp bed linen which smelled so fresh. The continental breakfast included in the price was unbelievable, Elizabeth and Martin couldn't have made us more welcome along with their lovely dog Bruno! The Barracks are a credit to them and we would love to stay there again. Excellent value for money.

Lovely cottage, beautifully finished & the breakfast provisions were very good. Location was great, being a short walk to Richmond Bridge & the shops. The bed was also very comfortable....unfortunately I spent much more time in bed than I would have liked. Arrived feeling sick as a dog with a stomach bug and apart from a quick walk/stagger around Richmond for an hour, slept from around 2pm to 5am next morning.

Very friendly hosts, perfect location in beautiful historic village of Richmond. Idyllic surrounds and ideal location for exploring Hobart and surrounding area. Decided to stay here based on positive reviews, and was not disappointed. Generous breakfast basket provided, but found other meals in the area a bit pricey (understandable - a tourist area). The rooms are equipped with fridge, tv, microwave, - tea and coffee etc.. Very clean and modern interior, and delightfully renovated rooms. there was heating/aircon if required. Would recommend and would stay here again. Handy location to airport - (15 min drive). The Barracks looks like the photos on the website. contacted the owners direcly, and emailed our details. Prompt and courteous communication.
