I recently stayed at the Elphin Villas with my 2 daughters (12 & 8). We booked a two bedroom apartment and were very happy with this accommodation. The room was clean and well maintained with excellent facilities for us to make our own breakfast. The staff were friendly and as I rang and booked I chose a bottom floor apartment... More

In the 36 years of staying in motels this would be the worst. Small, noisy and a definite waste of money. To top it off, theres a night club that rages over the road until 3am in the morning. The old Tassie truly gone for good.

Dear Carol, I am sorry to hear of your disappointment during your recent visit to our property. One of the biggest selling points for our Villas, is our quiet location. I am not sure about your reference to a night club, as there is not one in the area. The closest public venue is the indoor tennis centre. I hope... More

These villas are clean and check-in was simple.The villas have all you need for a short term stay-we stayed for 5 days. Handy having a Coles store across the road for all essentials. From here, we were able to walk the city all the way to Cataract Gorge and back-took about 3 hours all up but it is all flat... More

Handy to the City centre and City Park . Dated, yet clean and comfortable. Ideal as a base while visiting family in Launceston. Staff were helpful, friendly and most pleasant to deal with.A supermarket is across the road for any grocery or snack items required. Our unit was upstairs, so not suitable for disabled visitors.

We have received excellent service here, the location is perfect and close to shops and the city centre, the staff are delightful and so helpful...we arrived on a bike in dreadful weather and were offered shelter. Apartments are so clean and well set up...such a refreshing change after our dreadful Hobart experience.

Dear Sharon Thank you for your feedback. I think the motel room you booked, was too small for your requirements. We also have studio rooms which are larger with a lounge, dining area and kitchenette. May I suggest when you do check into a room and it does not meet your needs, that you let reception know as we are... More

Back for our third visit based on cleanliness, spaciousness, basic but adequate kitchen facilities, quiet and calm locale, access to our own strip of green garden, proximity to a supermarket for supplies and importantly, walking distance to the botanic garden and the city centre. Good value. What's not to like? Will be returning on our next trip to the Apple... More

Booked a 2 bedroom at Elphin for 3 nights. Clean and value for money.Near to Coles & 24hrs Kmart which its a plus. Another plus its parking outside your door and free wifi. Service was just average. Bed's needed a BIG change, not comfy at all its like you are sleeping on a springless bed.
