We stayed foir a couple a nights recently as a family group in 2 of the Highbury apartments. We were very comfortable, the apartments were clean and we found the heritage style quiet charming. Thankyou to Kate for sharing her local knowledge with us. We would choose to stay @ Highbury apartments again.

We stayed just after boxing day Dec 14 for 4 nights. The price was great and the apartment was very clean and well maintained. It is an older style but this didn't detract as does for some other accommodation. The host who lives near by was very accommodating. Lastly, we would stay there again if in Launceston

Stayed 2 nights during December, the appartement is convenient and you will find all equipments you may need. You can go to the city by foot in 5 minutes, however to come back by foot the way is a little bit sportive as the inclination of the road is quite high. Nice stay in Highbury, we would come back for... More

We found ourselves needing accommodation in Lonnie at fairly short notice, during what must have been a busy weekend, as there was not a lot on offer. We didn't expect much from Highbury, which was one of the few places to have any rooms left at all. So we were pleasantly surprised to find it clean and convenient and quite... More

We booked 5 nights & stayed in cosy Apartment 5. A roomy 2 bedrooms complete with fully equipped kitchen & washing machine & drier in bathroom. With mornings around 1C the heating was good. We could open the curtains in the mornings to watch the fog roll down the Tamar - beautiful views! Kate the owner was very friendly &... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. The apartment no 5 was roomy and comfortable. Kate made us feel very welcome and it has good veiws of launceston and is a quick walk to the city centre. The only issues we had was the wireless was erratic and had to move around to get connectivity. The TV was just OK with only... More

Spent four nights in Apartment 6 (upstairs with 2 double bedrooms) Was pleasantly surprised with the amenities and location. Only drawback was the heatwave in March, which the apartment does not cater for (no fans and very heavy bedding for 30 degree+ temperatures) Kate was very helpful during the booking process and organising key pickup.

We stayed in the downstairs 2 bedroom apartment for 1 week and we would happily stay there again. The host (Kate) was friendly and very helpful with anything we needed from directions to extra bin liners. I was worried about being cold as it was July and I live in the subtropics. I'm happy to say the heating worked well... More

Stayed in one of the upstairs apartments which is accessed via two flights of external stairs, but is worth it for the nice views over the city. Very clean and cosy with all the usual appliances and kitchen utensils one would expect in a fully furnished apartment, including some unexpected bonuses such as electric heated blankets and WiFi. Easy walking... More

This place is great. Could do with a lick of paint but if you want value for money, in a central location with views to die for then book in to the Highbury Apartments 97 Arthur Street, Launceston, Tasmania. We had apartment 6. Two bedrooms, open plan living and dining with a gorgeous deck with view across the city, down... More
