We stayed here one night, close to the airport (10) kms. Takes about 30 mins, in peak hour & roadworks. We had room B5, small cottage, however all worked well, nice bathroom, very comfortable bed, great breakfast basket. The basket contained cereals, fruit, bread for toasting, crumpets, blue berries, butter, biscuits & chocolates, juice & milk in the fridge The room had 2 heaters & electric blankets on the bed just incase you got really. We will stay here again, next time in Hobart

Very historic - they were apparently the officers' homes. Each one has been divided into upstairs or downstairs. We had the spa suite on the ground floor, which was a twin room, a queen room, a kitchen/lounge/dining and a bathroom. Be aware that "historic" means the rooms didn't have a lot of natural light, and rooms were fairly small (except the bathroom). Very charming decor - we loved looking at the antiques and beautiful old photo portraits of people from a bygone era. Kitchenette was well appointed. Breakfast basket was generous and had some fun touches - we actually used it for an afternoon snack on arrival as well. Free parking sufficient for all units at back of building. We chose this place because it's so close to the airport (10 min) and we were heading up the east coast highway the next day. We could shop for supplies in Sorell, which has both Woolworths and Coles. We would stay again.

This is an awesome place to stay. 10 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from Hobart. Good base to get to and from. Tracy and Chick are super hosts. Lots of little details like blankets for putting on when sitting, moisturiser to apply after a day out and a great breakfast is provided. Lots of great places to eat out at that are within walking distance. Great value for money and quaint surroundings.
