Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything was so well prepared with an easy check-in. We were thoroughly surprised by everything the house is equipped with, from electronic blanket to floor heating during winter in Tasmania. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our weekend stay at the Library House - the house itself is gorgeous but the extra comforts are what made our stay so enjoyable - details that did not go unnoticed including flowers and macaroons on arrival and the Aesop products that were provided all contributed to making us feel right at home. We can't thank Bianca & Emma enough for their hospitality and would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Hobart.

Gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Library House, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Hobart. Great for a large farmily or group of friends. Lots of room to relax, enjoy the views, or have some time out in the media room or library. The attention to detail was second to none, including providing spare toothbrushes if needed, to every bathroom having Aesop products to use.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Library House. It was beautifully kept and perfect for all 9 of us. We watched the boats come into the Derwent (from the Sydney to Hobart yacht race) on the deck on a stunning Hobart day. Thoroughly enjoyed our time.
