We enjoyed 2 nights in the Elizabeth Suite. The room was simply lovely and the bed warm and comfortable. We had a beautiful large bathroom, that was very cold, but we left the door open from the bedroom and enough heat transferred into the bathroom to make it comfortable enough. The whole property is very well decorated and styled, and... More

This is a lovely house with beautiful rooms and furnishings. We found the room a little cramped but there is a pleasant guest lounge with an open fire. The stairs to the upstairs rooms are steep and long and awkward with luggage and the ensuite in our room was down a small but steep flight of steps. A bit daunting... More

Patricia, thank you for your review on your recent visit to Highfield House.I am so pleased that you enjoyed your accommodation and breakfast. Yes the stairs are a little difficult for the elderly and is best to select a ground floor room. I hope to welcome you both again in the future. Warm Regards Michelle More

This place is wonderful. The owner was running it whilst we were there, and he was very kind and accommodating. The fire was blazing when we came in from the rain. There is so much detail in the house, with new and old pieces throughout. And then there was breakfast, so much choice; banana bread, croissants, fresh fruit and local... More

We stayed in the Arthur Room for one night and we wish we could have stayed longer. Our room was absolutely beautiful, loved the way it was decorated and the bathrobes were a nice touch. It was a little cold in there, however it was manageable with the heating and electric blankets. The shared areas such as the lounge and... More

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.
