Corinda is different. Julian’s great great grandfather, Alfred Crisp, built this magnificent private house – one of the prosperous State capital’s grandest – in the late 1870s. Some 150 years later, his visitor-friendly family home and its lavish gardens are still very much as he left them.
Well, sort of. Look closely and you’ll see subtle changes that bring Corinda firmly into the 21st century. There’s free wi-fi connectivity and flat screen TV, of course, with huge antique cast iron radiators spreading warmth into every cranny. Our Vintage bathrooms may look quaint, but the plumbing is right up to date and you’ll find piping hot water, soft cotton towels, Millie Mar soaps and unusual Tasmanian beauty products to pamper you at bedtime.
When the time comes for breakfast we’re sure our free range eggs, thinly sliced grilled bacon, home baked bread and freshly made fruit salads and juices – all at no extra charge – will prove irresistible. Breakfast is prepared to order and served on the Verandah downstairs. T2 Tea and Villino coffee, the coffee freshly roasted right here in Hobart, are available in each bedroom to save you ringing for the chambermaid. On the landing upstairs you will find a Nespresso machine with a supply of pods, plus home baked biscuits from Jean-Pascal, our local French pâtissier.
