We stayed for five nights and used Richmond as our base for various day trips in the region. Esther's Cottage was very comfortable, the owners Liz and Martin have taken great pride in the cleanliness and presentation of their property. The gardens are lovely and there are tables and benches in front of each cottage. A block to the main street of Richmond which is a lovely town with good shops and interesting attractions. We thoroughly recommend this property to other travelers. By the way, if you like antiques visit the Sorell Antiques Centre (Sorell is a 15-20 minute drive), it is a lovely old building and has rooms of antiques to peruse.
- 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
