We stayed for 3.nights at this place and absolutely loved the place. It's close to everthing and has great views. Definitely would recommend it to couples if your staying in Launceston. Our room was called Highfield and we cld see the whole city from our room.

Recently renovated, very clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the open fire in the guest and breakfast room. Our room was on the ground floor so access was easy after a warm welcome. Its location makes it easy to see Launceston and the surrounds.

Stayed in the Highfield Suite and it has magnificent views across Launceston. Beautiful styling and fitout. Exceptional bed. Open fireplaces in the lounge and breakfast area set up a great atmosphere. My partner and I both have food allergies and these were easily catered for with a beautiful breakfast. Just an all-round lovely spot.

We have just spent three nights in the Arthur Room. I'll start with the positives: character property, very clean, large guest room with open fire (although this was only lit for two days, as on the third day we were the only guests there and the manager didn't bother to light it), lovely large shower and great location. And the... More

Thank you for your review on your stay and I am so pleased that you both enjoyed the character of Highfield House, the cleanliness, the ensuite facilities and the great location. I apologise for the fire going out when you returned after dinner at 10.30pm, as you may be aware it is difficult to keep an open log fire continuously... More

The house itself has so much character and the rooms have been styled to perfection. The house itself is up on a hill with a nice view and not far from Cataract Gorge (about 10 min in the car). Positives: Great location, beautiful room, very comfortable bed and pillows, nice bathroom, very affordable mini bar, iron and ironing board available,... More

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!
