I could get past that my room had no balcony even though it was advertised to of had one, and that the bathroom reminded me of what you would expect in a motor home/ caravan, or the hospital bed sheets. It was when I misplaced my key and after looking everywhere I polietly asked the man doing the ironing (who... More

We stayed here a year ago and were charmed. At that point the new owners had just taken over. We chose to stay again because of the comfort, charm and convenience. Regrettably, things have declined since our previous visit. Breakfast supplies and daily room servicing are no longer offered. Cobwebs abound and curtains are torn. The service is still very...

We stayed in the family room. It pretty much looks as the pictures suggests. Would have been good to know that it is on the ground level at the back of the house, pretty much in the car park. On the first night someone parked right up next to our bedroom window at 10 pm and noisily slammed doors and... More

I stayed for only one night but could have stayed longer. I had the Honeymoon Suite which was absolutely beautiful. A large period room with a very comfortable bed, a fab spa and was very quiet. All the linen was near new and fresh and clean. The building is a stunner Edwardian with loads of charm. The owners were very... More

Certainly a grand building but needs greater attention to cleanliness. We stayed in room 10; a family room at the back of the house. The carpet was badly stained in the dining room/ lounge room. Dishes were still in the dishwasher and some had been put away dirty in the cupboard. The stove top had burnt food around the hot... More

We stayed for two nights. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was large with nice furniture in keeping with the Edwardian building. On close look some appointments are a bit dated especially the bathroom but despite that it was clean and tidy. The room was quiet and warm and there was secure off street parking.

Decided a few days before the weekend to have a quick trip away and take the kids to play in the snow. So was a little doubtful when all of my first choices where fully booked. My first choices are always new shinny and modern so going into something old dated and a little scary looking quite frankly wasn't to... More

Needed to stay overnight in Launceston for a sporting carnival. Had late check in and were leaving early. Good accommodation close to venue and roomy for a family. Clean and tidy, kitchenette well appointed and even fresh milk in a jug in the fridge not long life milk. Youngest child liked it, said it was like visiting Nan's house.

A beautiful but TIRED old house within 15 minutes walk to the city centre. We visited in May when the weather was very cold (minus two degrees Celsius one morning). Our room at Kilmarnock House had one very basic electric heater which failed dismally to heat the room which had the old style, very high ceilings. A matter of safety... More

Kilmarnock House is an Edwardian dwelling, built in 1905 and a delightful example of the architecture of that time. Despite the business having changed hands just before I arrived, in early February, 2015, I found that my stay was very comfortable, the room was pleasant and clean, and my 'mini-kitchen cupboardr' was most ingenious! Stained glass windows, sunny verandahs and... More
