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

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

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.
