We stayed 3 nights in Aphrodites and highly recommend this place. It was peaceful and quite. Beds were soft and comfy. Huge bathroom. Kitchen was fully equipped with every possible thing one would need in a house and even clingwrap and aluminium foil was supplied. There was nothing to complain about. The owner Louise was extremely friendly so was the... More

The reviews of the rooms and hosts are pretty much spot on. The rooms (we stayed in the English cottage) are very nice and cosy and the hosts hospitable, friendly and very welcoming. I have a grudge though that nearly prevented me from booking at all. We had decided through the trip advisor reviews that it sounded like a nice... More

Thanks for your review. We were embarrassed about how angry you were about the booking process. We were not happy either and have contacted the company that organises our bookings. We have to use them as many people use a third person ( booking company ) to book. This avoids double bookings. Our channel manager explained to us all the... More

Strongly recommend to anyone who goes to Launceston. This place is just near to city, peaceful surrounds, quiet at night. You can just park your car right outside the cottage. The bathtub and spa is just awesome! Host are great, friendly. The English cottage is soooooo nice ! :) Everything that you need for cooking is provided in the kitchen.... More

Alice's Cottages is a group of 19th Century Cottages carefully restored within walking distance of the Launceston center. It is located within a neighborhood and extremely quiet. Each cottage has a different theme, with antiques from that country. Cataract Gorge and the seafood restaurants on the renovated harbourfront are within significant walking distances. However, on nice days both are worth... More

The room was unexpected! I didn't want to go out once we stepped in - it's as though we stepped into a different world. We stayed at Camelot and the bed & decor lived up to its name. The place is warm, clean and luxurious. The spa bath was lovely. Amenities in the bathroom were excellent and toiletries were lavender-based.... More

We have stayed here several times and every time is a new experience in one of the fantastic themed suites or cottages. All are comfortable with fabulous amenities. A warm welcoming family business run with a heart adds to the total experience. The bonus is that it is reasonably priced, close to the city centre and pets are welcomed. Highly... More

3 wonderful days in the Welsh cottage. So quaint. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and a great, relaxing spa with gorgeous lotions and bubble bath. Terrific location. Walk to Cataract Gorge and to Seaport and retail hub, etc. A good Coles supermarket nearby. Delicious breakfasts. The gardens were beautiful and we loved every minute of our stay. Well done Louise and... More

We stayed 3 nights in Irish Cottage. It was amazing. The cottage has been beautifully restored and is extremely comfortable and you feel as if you have stepped back in time. There were books there that were over 150 years old!! Loved the fresh roses and port and chocolates. Breakfast provisions generous and spa bath great. Would love to have... More

Stayed at Bonnie Doon cottage. Great place to stay! The cottage is clean, cosy and relaxing. It has a well equipped kitchen for those wanting to cook their own meals. The breakfast provisions are substantial. Beds are comfortable and the themed décor adds a nice touch. The spa bath is a welcome addition to the end of a days touring!... More

We stayed at very short notice at Aphrodite's cottage on the Alice campus for one night only. Highlights included the beds which were so very soft, the location so close to everything, the homeliness of the cottage including a great selection of books and LPs, and the friendly welcoming hosts who were just so refreshing from first contact to farewell...
