Prospect House has long been an icon for Heritage Boutique Accommodation in Australia. It offers 1990's service second to none, with an 1830's old world ambience. The fine dining restaurant has received world wide acclaim with a consistent delivery of fresh Tasmanian produce served to an international standard with friendly service.
The classic Georgian House sits off the road on the approach to Historic Richmond, a unique Georgian Village which boasts the oldest Roman Catholic Church and the oldest Bridge in Australia. It also has the Old Richmond Gaol (Older than Port Arthur itself), a maze, the Old Hobart Town Model Village, Richmond Toy Museum, Antique and Craft Stores, Wineries and wonderful early 1800's architecture.
The main house contains three dining rooms on the ground floor and the hotel reception in the old 1800's kitchen. This still contains the original wood fired stove and bread oven. Upstairs is an inviting guest lounge with books, magazines and board games, a boardroom and one guestroom. The balance of the accommodation is contained in the Servant's Quarters in the west wing of the House and in the converted Barns and Haylofts, the east and north wings. Each room has the old world atmosphere of antique furnishings but with all modern conveniences expected by today's discerning traveller.
Underneath the main house is the old gaol, home to 22 convicts in the 1830's and now used as a wine cellar.
