We stayed in the two bedroom apartment, Lady Esther. It was great, comfortable, clean, and well appointed. It was obvious the owners care about the place as shown by the little touches. As others have said the location is great and is a short walk into town. Richmond is one of the better "old" towns in Tasmania that we saw. Well worth a walk around. Two minor comments. The only shower is off the main bedroom. This is OK for a night or two with 4 adults but could be irritating for a longer period. Secondly check which nights you're in town because the places to eat aren't always open and its a drive to the next town for somewhere to eat if you don't want to live on takeaways.

The location was an easy walk to all the sites of Richmond which made this cottage a highlight. On the outside it looks rustic and authentic but on the inside we had all the comforts of home, digital TV, well appointed kitchen and snuggly beds. The (teenage) children loved the loft style second bedroom. The continental breakfast was generous. Would definitely recommend a stay here and in the town of Richmond. Try Anton's pizza!

Of all the places we stayed at on our 2 weeks around beautiful Tasmania, the Richmond Barracks was the one place we slept solidly for 4 nights, the bed & pillows were magnificent, it felt like a little home away from home. It was so quiet & we had everything we needed, Liz the owner let us use her private BBQ & tools, Bruno the dog also made us very welcome. What a beautiful little town, we were very impressed because a few cafes/restaurants catered to our gluten intolerance. We were only 20mins away from Hobart. My parents will be looking you up next year Liz, thank you for a memorable stay & all the best for the future.

Room Tip: Let Liz know whether you are travelling solo or as a family.

I have today returned from traveling around the beautiful state of Tasmania, while we stayed in many places in the 2 weeks we travelled, i found that Richmond Barracks was the most enjoyable place to stay and a high-light for our group of 4 adults,we had 2 of the cottages.
We stayed for 4 nights and host Liz and her gorgeous dog, could not have made us feel more welcome. The facilities were of outstanding quality and the cleanliness was brilliant. Liz went even as far as to supply our group with the tools, oil and sauces to use her BBQ.
I would happily recommend this to anyone looking to stay in this beautiful region.
Well done Liz, thank you again for having us, i wish you all the success for these Cottages.

We stayed at the Beautiful Richmond Barracks in the Lady Esther 2 bedroom cottage on a 3 week trip to Tasmania. On arrival at the Richmond Barracks we were greeted by the owners Liz & Martin. They have to be 2 of the most pleasant, helpful and friendly people anyone could meet and during our stay nothing was too much trouble for them, I found them easily approachable and it felt like we had known them for years.

As soon as you enter the cottage you are struck by the extremely high standard of maintenance and cleanliness of the place. The open plan lounge\ kitchen is brilliant and consists of all home comforts. The downstairs ensuite bedroom was divine. The bed was so comfortable that i found it hard to force myself out of it in the mornings, the lovely continental breakfast basket was very appealing though and had lovely breads, fruits and yoghurt to choose from. The bathroom was again finished to a very high standard and even had a heater switch which kept the room warm once you came out of the shower. The shower was fantastic too and made me realise just how badly my shower is at home as it was so powerful and hot. The upstairs bedroom consists of a nice twin bedroom with ensuite toilet and sink which was also maintained perfectly.

We enjoyed our stay at the Richmond Barracks so much that we had to go back near the end of our trip. This time we stayed in the Retreat one bedoom unit which was again beautiful.

I would definately recommend anyone visiting Richmond to stay at Richmond Barracks as you won't be disappointed. We loved it so much that we are already planning a return trip and will definately be staying at the Barracks for a longer period of time. Liz and Martin should be very proud of what they have acheived with Richmond Barracks as it is credit to both them and the area of Richmond.

This lovely historical B&B style premises is in the charming small town of Richmond near Hobart. We had our own self contained unit with all mod cons, ensuite tv, heater/cooler. Martin & Liz looked after us so well it felt like family! The building is a converted barracks from the 1800's during the time of convict deportations to austrailia. Beautiful town and countryside.
