The Racecourse Inn offers stylish heritage B&B accommodation, with warm country hospitality in historic Longford, one of Tasmania’s oldest villages.   As the perfect base for touring Northern Tasmania, The Racecourse Inn is only 15 minutes from Launceston airport, 20 minutes from the centre of Launceston and one hour from the Spirit of Tasmania terminal in Devonport.

Set in lovely, English style heritage cottage gardens, this beautifully restored Georgian coaching inn was originally named the “Northern Hotel”, then the”Railway Hotel”, and subsequently the “Racecourse Hotel” after the Longford racecourse, Australia’s oldest continuously raced racetrack. With roses trailing over its convict-made bricks, the picture-perfect two-storey Georgian B&B (circa 1838) is steeped in the history of Longford, one of the earliest villages settled in Tasmania (c.1813).  For those interested in history, the building itself contains some rare and unusual architectural features, including one of only two barrel vaulted ceilings in Tasmania.

Our five en-suite guest rooms have been individually furnished with period antiques with the comfort of the traveller in mind.  Upstairs are three delightful attic rooms with dormer windows and sloping timber-lined ceilings, and downstairs two generous bedrooms, including a spacious heritage suite with a king-sized bed and double spa.

Your accommodation includes a full cooked and continental breakfast featuring tasty, locally sourced Tasmanian ingredients, many of them home-grown and hand picked daily from our kitchen garden, chooks and orchard.  Guests may also enjoy our cosy, fully licensed guest lounge and fire.

The Racecourse Inn is only five minutes away from Longford’s main tourist attractions, including two UNESCO World Heritage listed properties, Brickendon Estate and Woolmers Estate (home to the National Rose Garden), and marks the start of Tasmania’s Heritage Highway.

We’re also only a short drive from the Tamar Valley and Northern Tasmanian wine routes, and minutes away from some of the best fly fishing lakes and streams in Australia, including Brumbys Creek, The Macquarie and South Esk Rivers, and Tasmania’s highland lakes.
