This was our last stop before departing the next day. Had arrived in the afternoon, with good details receieved on how to get in. The building itself is beautiful. On a steep hill just up the road from the main street of Launceston, but still an easy walki. Whilst relatively quiet, a little noisy as cars, bikes, etc, accelerated up... More

Beautiful accommodation, fresh clean renovations and restorations. Gorgeous views from the balcony and front room. We stayed in the Elizabeth room which we found more than big enough. We also liked how the bathroom in this suit was also really big. Breakfast was lovely a consisted of fresh bread and croissants, jam, fresh fruit, ham and Tasmanian cheeses you could... More

I followed the tripadvisor recommendations to this b&b. It is very nice place with tasteful decoration and good view. All stuff are premium quality. I love the shea butter and their breakfast. Highly recommend!!

The place is luxuriously decorated with high-end decor, high quality linen and modern fittings. The highlight for us was watching the New Year's Eve fireworks from the upstairs balcony which has incredible views. Breakfast was delightful and the quality food selection impressive including fresh fruit and local delicacies. Only let down was an awkward check in as other guests had... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and again we apologise for the mix up with check in. It is really important that we get the correct contact details from our guests for this reason. Even if we had called we would not have been able to get through to you. It was just unfortunate that our phone was out... More

Stayed a couple of nights in this magnificent old building. Good size room, great character and very close to the CBD. First impressions were that this would rate above average but some small but important details didn't hit the mark. We arrived just after hours and we're lucky to be shown to our room. Envelope had a one page guide... More

We are so sorry for you poor experience on day 2 of your stay. We popped out to get fresh berries from the market from breakfast. We couldn't believe that all five 5 rooms had been up by 8:30pm for breakfast on New Years Day. No excuse and we really appreciate your feedback. Please let us know if you make... More

We stayed here for 3 seperate nights as we used Launceston as our base. All rooms are tastefully appointed and each have their own highlights. The view from the first floor balcony is wonderful and a lovely spot for a drink at dusk. The house is a 5-10 min walk into the heart of the CBD which meant we could... More

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for letting our future guest know about the bathroom situation. All but one of our rooms have an ensuite. The William Henty room is the only room with ensuite down the hall. This is mentioned on the booking site but many people miss this information. Even though this room does... More

Stayed here on the first night of our honeymoon in tasmania to find that we had been upgraded. That was a sign of things to come. The room we had was beautifully set up with all that you could hope for with a B&B. Kate, or host, was fantastic in the morning brewing up a fresh put off coffee for... More

A grand old girl who has a wonderful restoration! Every minute detail has not been overlooked, clearly the owner and designer of this property knew exactly what they wanted to offer their guests! Views over the city, walking distance to the city but very peaceful, the best sleep i have ever had in a B&B breakfast was a relaxing hot... More

Spent the first night of our honeymoon here, and now i wish we were staying longer. This grand old house has been beautifully renovated and, as some other reviewers have said, nothing has been overlooked. When we arrived we were told we'd been given a free upgrade, the room was immaculate, bathroom pristine, and lots of nice touches, such as... More

We were only able to book one night here but would have loved to have stayed longer. The view from the hill was spectacular and the service and room facilities were second to none. By far the nicest B&B we have stayed in Tassie & we loved Launceston.
