Booked a Queen room and were upgraded to a Deluxe upon arrival. Spacious room. Comfortable. Good breakfast...cooked and Continental. Friendly family who run the place. Located up the hill from the city so good views from the breakfast room. Good value for money. Close to everything. We stayed three nights and were very happy with our choice.

This really is a cute little place. Close to everything, comfy beds and warm rooms. This was perfect for our overnight stay and was very clean. The shower is rather small for a bigger person but really for $95 a night including breakfast this is great value. Very friendly hosts and good simple breakfast!

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of March and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a very comfortable room (room 7) with lovely views across the city from our window. I am vegan and had alerted Jenny to this when I booked and she went out of her way to make me fresh soy... More

Good location close to city and friendly owner, however, the nearby church bells rang throughout the night and being positioned on a hill meant listening to traffic constantly changing gears and accelerating. Owner was apologetic, obviously out of her control but we didn't stay second night.

The good things about this b&b is the position, easy to walk around town, the water pressure in the dated shower is good. The free wifi is also good. The bad things are the bed is really uncomfortable, I think it's from the 60s. It is very noisy because you can hear noise from upstairs, it sound like the other... More

Very good value. Made very welcome by Jenny, the owner, who also cooked a great breakfast. Our room was fine. En suite in need of an update ...but a great shower. It is on a hill but only a short walk from the centre. Great opportunity to stay in an 1840s residence. Yes it needs improvements but really good value.... More

We stayed here this weekend, it was perfect for us. We had a car and used it as a base to see Launceston and the surrounds, including the Tamar Valley. The wifi was good, breakfast was a great serve of bacon and eggs, as well as continental. The owner was lovely and really helpful. We'd stay there again. it's probably... More
