This is a very interesting setup. Feels like you've gone back to medieval times. The room could've been warmer. There were thick blankets available but I think a better heating system is required. Also, the pub in the premises makes the place a bit busy. However, overall we had no major issue here. It's a good location and it's good... More

Both receptionists were very helpful and friendly. The room was neat and tidy and the beds comfy. Noise could be a problem in this particular room as it adjoins another via an internal door which doesn't have much sound proofing. Proximity to the gorge was a bonus.

Minutes from the city centre and Cataract Gorge. A lovely little apartment that made us feel like home for the two nights we stayed. Very picturesque location and buildings. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Nice and cosy on those cold Launceston nights. Would stay again.

Also close to a good variety of Take away meals for times we didn't want... More

We wanted accommodation for 2 adults and 2 girls (9 and 11) and had the 3 bedroom apartment that looked out over the back of the building, with a lounge / diner / kitchen and bathroom downstairs and 3 bedrooms upstairs.

This was my favourite accommodation while we were in Tasmania. We were just going for a cheap option but the room we were in was worth more than we paid. It is situated opposite the Cataract Gorge which is a lovely walk. It does have free wifi up until a certain amount.
