The space
Macquarie House is of major heritage significance, and one of the oldest surviving buildings in Tasmania. The property is on the Tasmanian Heritage Register, noted as one of the first two brick buildings ever constructed in Hobart. Birch's House first became known as Macquarie House after Governor Lachlan Macquarie stayed there between April and June 1820. The very name of the building ‘Macquarie House' is a recognition of the fact that Dr. TW Birch was favoured by Macquarie.

In 1824, the property was converted to a hotel for the first time, and in 1842 the hotel converted to a boarding house (including the additions of coach house and stables). In 2015, it was renovated back to accommodation, and reinvigorating the name 'Macquarie House' - not the stables, but newly renovated guest rooms!

Guest access
Guests have access to the communal kitchen, bathrooms, lounge room and laundry. There is also a restaurant on the ground floor (Fico Bistro & Vino).

Other things to note
Key collection by appointment on site at Macquarie House (151 Macquarie Street – Fico Bistro & Vino is on the ground floor).

Hi there and welcome to Hobart, my name is Eleni and I’m a mother of three beautiful girls. My passions in life include travelling, wining, dining and entertaining. I’ve been involved in the hospitality industry for many years, having worked at Radisson on Flagstaff and the Park Hyatt in Melbourne. I know what it’s like to be away from home as I’ve travelled the world and the seven seas. The feel of a cosy place to set and rest both your head and feet after a day of travelling and exploring is heaven. 3 important things I’ve learnt whilst travelling are: Firstly the room and space has to be clean, simple and tidy Secondly the shoes you wear thru the day will determine how you feel when you go to bed and thirdly the mattress and pillows will determine how you feel when you wake up. For this reason I would like to make your stay in Hobart enjoyable and comfortable by providing great accomodation (not to mention fantastic location, central to everything) along with a good mattress and pillows minus the shoes :)
