Ranked as one of Australia's 'Top Five New Getaways' by Virgin in 2014, the Library House is Hobart's newest luxury accommodation. 'Stayz Awards' has also named it the 'Best Indulgence Accommodation' in Tasmania for 2014. Located in the picturesque hills of West Hobart, this welcoming 5 Bedroom house offers up a superb design, that seamlessly blends its Federation roots with a modern extension, to show-case breathtaking 280 degree panoramic views overlooking the River Derwent. The Library House is only minutes from the Hobart CBD, yet from your spectacular balcony view, you'll feel like you're a world away.

The Library House is a true reader's paradise. Its walls are hung throughout, with the original works of Tasmanian artists. Upstairs are three bedrooms (2 Kings and attic Double with options) plus two bathrooms (one Ensuite, one spa). Ground floor 2 Queen bedrooms and one bathroom. Gorgeous linen, lush bathrobes, toiletries. Every kind of heating. Off-street parking. Free WiFi and Foxtel. Wonderful cafes and restaurants plus CBD all within 3 mins. 5 mins by car to Salamanca and the various ferry departure points.

Enjoy entertaining family and friends- or, simply relax and watch the clouds pass by, from your bedroom, with spectacular views of the River Derwent spread out before you. Sample the best that Hobart has to offer in a place where Nature, Food and Art will provide all the ingredients you need for the perfect Australian holiday. The Library House is ready to welcome you.More
