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

Had breakfast included which was generous and yummy. We would definitely stay there again! Great location, easy to find coming in from Hobart, clean and we... 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.

The host Sandra gave us an extremely warm welcome upon our arrival and provided helpful advice for touring Launceston and Tasmania. The deluxe room is very nice but the twin room is on the small side and is also slightly dark. Definitely worth it to pay slight more for the deluxe room. Sandra and Robin cooked up a great hot...
