We only had one night at the Windmill Hill, but it was a great start to our Tasmanian holiday. Arriving late on the least flight into Launceston, we were worried about getting in despite our reservation on the night before a big V8 Super car race. Stevie our host was up waiting, carried our heavy suitcase up the stairs to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was fine quite spacious but the bathroom/shower a bit on the small side. The hosts were absoluely lovely. The breakfast was excellent with everything homemade -from the jams/muffins/piklets to the Burcher Museli and creamed rice - deliscious. All of the stewed fruits and bread. Alot of effort put into the breakfast and... More

We were cycle touring Tasmania in November and stayed here at the start of our trip. Disappointed that our trip didn't allow us to also finish here. When we arrived at 10am, hoping to just leave our luggage and come back at a more respectable time, we were extremely surprised when they told us to "go up and make ourselves... More

We stayed here in July 2013 and opted for the two room family suite which turned out bigger than I thought it would be. Two teenage daughters had one room which connected to the self contained family room which could have slept 4 anyway if we'd chosen to. It isn't luxurious but is quite comfortable in a lovely historic house.... More

The place is on quiet street & quite convenient location. Nice home-made breakfast & friendly host. I agree with other viewer, if you have dust mite allergy, this is not the place for you. The hall way is pretty dark. I'm not sure the floor is clean or not as it is dark-brown floral carpet, dark red tile in the... More

Feels just like a traditional english B and B with a friendly, grascious host. Comfortable and homely rooms with all you could need for your stay. Apart from the service, the best part is the breakfast. Beautifully set breakfast area with a range of foods on offer from basic cereal to home made breakfast muffins and everything in between.

This was a lovely little place to stay. It's also known as Windmill Bed and Breakfast. Our accommodation fee covered a lovely breakfast that you can have in the dining room from 7am to 9am. This place is about 10-15 minutes from the middle of Launceston city and is walkable - only advice is that the walk into town and... More

We booked this on-line and we weren't sure what to expect. After a great day hiking, and after a long drive from Cradle Mountain to Launceston, we were very pleased when we arrived at Windmill Hill Lodge. The building is charming and our room was big and very comfortable. The only downside was that while the lodge has wifi, it... More

An enjoyable and comfortable stay in this quite traditional B&B in an old house. Stayed for 2 nights in a room with a kitchen. Room is quaint with décor that makes it look historical; almost like living in a museum exhibit. (if you wanted to be critical, you could say it was a bit tired and outdated, but if you... More
