We stayed the 1 night in the B&b and found its location very handy. Our room was large and the bathroom fine. There was quite a large gap under our door so we could hear quite a bit from the corridor and each time the front door bell went. We rolled up a towel and popped it by the door... More

I stayed one night with Sandra at Hillview house while on a quick work trip. Beautiful views from the verandah, breakfast room and my bedroom. Highlight of my stay. Service was welcoming and friendly. Room was a nice size, clean ensuite, TV, tea/coffee and wifi good enough to check my emails. Great location, though note it is on a steep... More

We recently had 2 night stay at Hillview B&B. booked room through Wotif which did not include breakfast. When we arrived we were advised that breakfast was available for an extra $15 per person but it was only available between 7.30 - 8.30. Who wants breakfast that early when on holiday..no us. We work Monday to Friday every week and... More

Thank you for your review, however, the breakfast is $15 per person and you opted for the no breakfast option. Rooms are tidies if not serviced daily, however, when the cleaner knocked at 10:30/11 with no response we were under the impression you were still sleeping as you car was still here. I am sorry you did not enjoy you... More

Had a wonderful stay. Very homely and very friendly host. Lovely. Thank you for the advice on driving times... Cradle and Burnie were worth the drive on final day :) Will be back to lovely Launceston and to enjoy more of the Cateract Gorge, a gem! Must get down in winter sometime too.

A lovely property. Great architecture that reflects the character of the area and is simply charming. Everything was clean and well presented, and the breakfasts generous and filling. Sandra was a great hostess who made you feel more like family than a guest and was always helpful when it came to ideas or traveling routes and was always interested in... More

This was my favourite place I rested my car-journey-weary head in Tassie. It is smack bang in the middle of the nicest and most historical part of Launceston so location is a 10 from 10. The building itself is a stunning example of colonial Tasmanian architecture, but with all the modern essentials a traveler needs. Some may yearn for a... More

The Hillview House is a wonderful place to stay with plenty of character. The room was very comfortable and well-appointed, and our host was wonderful. The breakfasts were fantastic. We would highly recommend this B&B accomodation again.
