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

This is a great B&B for Launceston CBD. Its a hilly 15 minute walk but not too difficult and with Cataract Gorge being within walking distance on the other side of the CBD it was perfect for us. (there is a free city bus too) Jenny is a very friendly helpful hostess with and abundance of smiles. We had a... More

Dear Gwyneth, I am really happy that you enjoyed your stay here in Hillview house and thanks very much for your review. There is one thing which I may have overlooked.

I always try and stay here with my wife when coming to Launceston; great breakfast, speedy wifi, clean room, and charming service from host Jenny. location perfect for Launceston with short walk to city centre and easy parking.

The lovely Hillview House is a delightful place to stay. Cosy rooms, yummy breakfast in a very quaint dinning room & lovely owner Jenny, along with the family makes it such a relaxed and enjoyable experience. Hillview House is on a few minutes walk from the CBD of Launceston, very Central & convenient. Would love to stay again when next... More

A very quaint 1900s house converted into a B&B of 9 rooms overlooking most of Launceston. Our room was upstairs, but the windows faced to the rear, so no view. The room was spacious with an adjoining en-suite, but there were no chairs in the room, so the only place to sit was on the bed. The bed was comfortable... More

We must have gotten the worst room in the House, as it was nothing like the wonderful reviews we have read. The room was tiny, and dusty, with worn linoleum in the bathroom, and the tiniest wash basin imaginable. There were cob-webs in corners of the room and storage areas. On the plus side is the location, as it is... More

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
