Built by an entrepreneurial ex-convict rogue as a coaching inn in 1860, The Racecourse Inn offers stylish bed and breakfast accommodation with warm country hospitality in historic Longford, one of the oldest towns in Tasmania (settled 1813). Located only 15 minutes from Launceston airport, 20 minutes from the centre of Launceston and one hour from the Spirit of Tasmania terminal in Devonport, this lovely former coaching inn is the perfect base for exploring beautiful Northern Tasmania. We are also a convenient and comfortable half-way stop between the east coast and Cradle Mountain, and only two hours from Hobart.
With five ensuite rooms, we offer all the comforts of home in a private and spacious country manor house setting. Our tariff includes a full cooked and continental gourmet country breakfast, using homegrown and fresh local produce served in our beautiful vaulted dining room. We also cater for groups – celebrate with a group of friends or get together with family. We offer a special rate for whole house bookings of two nights or more, accommodating up to twelve guests in our five ensuite rooms. Children and infants are welcome, and travel cots are available on request.
