Highfield House is a beautifully restored Victorian mansion which is perfectly located 5 minutes walk from Launceston CBD. Michelle - our host offered a well appointed room with extremely comfortable bed and amenities. The "continental" breakfast provided, offered plenty of choice and was of high quality. We spent two nights here and couldn't recommend it more highly.

My wife and I have travelled extensively over 30 years and Highfield House will stand out as one of the best - quite possibly THE best if the criteria is restricted to B&Bs - places we have stayed. The location is superb with magnificent views over the central city, yet is only a few minutes drive to the very centre... More

What a gorgeous house!!! Everything was perfect! A beautiful bed and bathroom... Very beautifully decorated and thoughtful placement of the most decadent soaps and hand cream. The fine details really make this B&B stand out from the rest! The breakfast.... Well I couldn't ask for anything more. Everything was absolutely stunning!! It's been a pleasure to stay here!

Have just returned from a 2 night stay at Highfield House. We have visited Launceston a few times before and tried this B&B on the basis of tripadvisor alone; as such I presume we were unlucky but we did not have a good experience. Positives - good continental breakfast. Comfortable bed. Clean. Negatives - despite staying 2 nights the room... More

We have stayed at a few B & Bs and this rates as one of the best. Michelle, our host, was gracious and extremely helpful but the building and rooms themselves are just beautiful. Highfield House is a lovely old building and the rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable, and functional. Highly recommend.

I was lucky enough to stay at this great B & B before it official reopened. The service was great, Michelle the manager made us feel right at home. The property is amazing with beautiful views of the city. We can't wait to go back. There is so much to do and see in Tassie.
