Willesden on Stoke

Our property was constructed in c1894 and was known as "Willesden". It was a single storey late-Victorian house with a verandah to the front and eastern side. Albert George Ogilvie, Premier of Tasmania from 1934 until his death in 1939, lived in the house from c1920. In c1927 he modernised it by adding a new pile of rooms to the eastern side and adding a second storey. The house was externally converted to Art Deco structure but still retained most of its Victorian interiors. The primary heritage significance of "Willesden" lies within its association with the former Premier, as the Art Deco fabric demonstrates his occupation and modernisation of the property.

Welcome to the "Ogilvie Suite". Stay in a splendid, beautifully appointed suite with the feel of a luxury boutique hotel, without the hotel and very spacious (96sqm). The suite has been fitted out to a high standard with quality fittings throughout.

The entrance to the suite is very elegant with a wide hallway, ornate archway, high ceilings and beautiful polished porcelain tiles leading to the kitchen area. The kitchen is custom made with soft close drawers and cupboards and quality German appliances which include convection oven/microwave, glass cook top, single drawer dishwasher, bar fridge, toaster, kettle and a Delonghi Nespresso coffee pod machine.

Off the entrance hall is the spacious living room with a large Italian black leather chaise lounge, a separate wine/beverage fridge, a wall hung 55" Samsung Smart TV, small dining table for 2 situated in the bay window.

Off the living room through a large Victorian archway is the bedroom and bathroom/ensuite. The bedroom has a wall hung 40" Samsung Smart TV and King size floating bed and compact wardrobe. The king size floating bed and bedside tables are custom made with lighting around the base and in the bed head for guests wanting to create a soft lighting effect. The very comfy king size mattress is Australian made from the Sleepmaker Luster Collection - Marina Comfort. High quality bed linen and good pillows.

Rachele is a sensational host, check in was easy and she was available to give us a tour of the room and property. Room had everything we could possibly want, and the chocolates on arrival was a nice touch. Bed was comfy and the entire space was spotless and brand new throughout. We did find the bathroom set up a bit odd with no door and an open roof, so be prepared for that. We would definitely stay again. Super luxurious and a lovely experience. Thank you for having us. xx5/5 by , Merricks North
A subline experience that we will be booking again in the near future. highly recommended for a stay where comfort and quality is at its best.5/5 by ,
We had two nights at Ogilvie and loved the experience. Clarke and Rachele are excellent hosts and we ate at one of their restaurant recommendations, Brother Mine, within walking distance, where the food and service were top notch. We swam in the private pool both afternoons which we highly recommend doing. The apartment is spacious, has beautiful big windows with stunning views of the Hobart hills. Staying here was a great way to end our Tasmanian holiday.5/5 by ,
