We were a group of 7 adults travelling together we spent four nights here, and the three cottages made it perfect for us. Simone, Matthew and Bruno (the dog) were wonderful. The continental breakfast provided was perfect to set us up for our days of touring this beautiful region. Easy drive to Port Arthur and also Hobart. Richmond is a...

A short walk will take you to the bridge for a photo experience then return via the main street to your spacious well appointed room. Relax in the courtyard with a book from the shelf in your room. Enjoy breakfast at your leisure before touring the vineyards and wicked cheese tasting a short drive away.

Stayed in The Cellar for 2 nights and have to say Simone is the hostess with the mostest! She made sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful stay!

My partner and I decided to stay in Richmond after having arrived there and seeing what a cute town it is. We called around to several places and found them to either be full or fairly expensive (starting at $160). This place, while showing booked/unavailable online, when we called, had availability! We spoke to Simone who was incredibly friendly and...

We had a lovely stay with Simone in Richmond. The Barracks were very comfortable with everything we needed. Only a short walk to the Richmond town centre. Perfect place to base yourself to explore Richmond and surrounds.

Spent the night in "The Retreat" and from the time we arrived we felt very welcome and at home.

Friendly, helpful host and neat compact overnight accommodation. Just right for our overnight stop in Richmond to prepare us for our day of wandering around the historic village. Very close to the centre of the village and walkable to sights by anyone. Our 88 y.o. granny walked into the centre for a good look around the Sunday markets.

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
