We stayed in the Wesleyan chapel at Evendale. A quaint little place that had everything you would need. Unfortunately our stay was very short. I was concerned that the place would be cold as we were there on a very cold day but once we turned the heaters on the place soon warmed up and was very comfortable. A good... More

Great location, with beautiful buildings nearby, friendly staff and a great breakfast. Unfortunately the beds and pillows are as old as the building. We booked a family apartment which is really not suitable for 4 adults and 1 child. The bathroom is only suitable for 1 bedroom as the other bedroom is in a complete separate area outside. We ended... More

We had a very large, quiet and clean room at the back of this large house. A very comfortable room. Steve was an excellent host and a wealth of local knowledge. Breakfast was magnificent with many local products, often made by Steve. The house is quite close to the heart of town. The hill is steep to town but did... More

Travellers from Melbourne, we book the family room. It is a huge room, very spacious and secure place to stay. - Close to the CBD, taxi would cost 6 dollars from the place. -Very nice Breaky, heaps of variety. -Steve is such a nice owner of the place. We enjoy having a conversation with.

Recently stayed one night with our three kids. This was a perfect place for us: really big rooms gave us space to spread out - a separate room for the children, including their own telly meant we had time to put our feet up for a few minutes after arriving and before heading out again. Beds were comfy and the... More

We stayed at Windmill Hill for a few nights. We loved the host, Steve who was very helpful and friendly. The property was well kept and the stay was very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and most of the food was home made including the honey which came from his hive. The only downside was the location. As the name implies,... More

We flew to Launceston for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the quality accommodation that awaited us at windmill lodge. My boyfriend and I love old buildings with history and this felt like a little step back in time. The location was great - on top of a hill with views and a short stroll into town amongst beautiful... More

This is a nice cute place to stay in. The owner Steve is a wonderful person and personally takes care of guests and of his property. The decor is tastefully done up, the breakfast is excellent, bathrooms clean and the rooms spacious. The location is central and perfect for taking in the sights of Launceston - almost everything is within... More

Cant believe I had forgotten to review this place, as I've stayed here three times at least, I and three mates take the family room for two nights each year, and the biggest recommendation for this place is how much you miss it when you miss out and book elswhere. This old victorian/edwardian mansiaon type house is well done out,... More

Five of us stayed here over the Festivale weekend. The rooms were spacious and perfect for our needs, it was a bonus to have a lovely sunroom where we could all sit and chat at the end of our days exploring Launceston. Steve and Marissa were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble, and they were very accommodating to our... More
