You need to bear in mind that this house was built in the 1870's. Fantastic location on the top of the hill above Launceston. Rooms are aged but adequate and comfortable. Fantastic hosts who are keen to help you enjoy your Tasmanian experience. Breakfast is the big draw card here, fresh, healthy and plenty of it, a cooked breakfast is... More

We stayed one night in the families room that can sleep up to 6. it was very spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. The welcome from Steve and the banter over the amazing breakfast helped make a delightful stay. And the breakfast... home grown honey and poached fruits (pear, peach, apricot, berries and more) and home baked bread and... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for 2 nights. Windmill Hill is well located in a quiet area of Launceston and our room was huge and spacious with a well equipped galley kitchen area but we did find the shower a bit on the small side. Some other areas in the room would benefit from a little more attention... More

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.
