It was like staying in a museum. Beautiful, unique accomodation with wonderful hosts. Comfortable beds and a beatiful bathroom and the best breakfast basket you could imagine. We definately recommend staying here.

We traveled as a group of 4 to Tasmania, and we have stayed several antique places during our 7 days trip. The Sorell barracks is one of the BEST stays we had! The lady on site is very friendly and welcomed us with smile, gave us a tour of our suite and showed us the lovely garden. The place was...

Our stay at the Sorell Barracks was very charming. It's a quaint B&B that offers family rooms and single rooms. The hosts were unbelievably sweet and put together a lovely breakfast basket for us. I would definitely recommend this accommodation for travellers.

We flew in from Brisbane and stayed here one night (should have been more). Beautiful old barracks full of history and charm, reminded me of the old homes in England. Two adults, two teenagers and no complaints, the breakfast was great, bread (for toast), crumpets, fruit, tea and coffee. Our first B&B experience and a great one. The hosts were...

Stayed at Sorell Barracks for 1 night with it being close to the airport. $30.00 in the taxi which the driver asked why were we not staying at the airport travel lodge. So glad we didn't. Received a really warm welcome and quick check in into our little barracks. The room is big, cosy and has plenty of character. Spotlessly...

Tracey was a lovely lady and greeted us warmly on arrival. We stayed in Sorrel as it was on our way back from Freycinet and relatively close to the airport. The accommodation itself is old, quaint, clean. Had a dated feel. The upstairs unit had low ceilings and narrow spaces, so felt a bit cramped. Breakfast was self serve in...

We were in Barrack 5, a detached room. The room was pretty small but spotlessly clean and had a good shower, bed etc. Breakfast was a basket of fruit and cereals also some decent coffee. Good for one night but not for a long stay.

We were due to head back to the "big island" the next morning so we decided to look for something close to the airport. Chose the Barracks at Sorell. The owner was terrific. Being a B&B, we had a breakfast basket delivered to our room. Unfortunately we were leaving on a 6am flight, so didn't get a chance to enjoy...

We stayed in the loft room at Sorrel Barracks in late April. Lovely spacious rooms and picturesque scenery make for a very pleasant stay. Close walk to the pub, shops and cafes. The hosts are lovely, friendly on arrival and happy to help with anything we needed.
