Just returned from a 3 day sojourn to Tassie and had the pleasure of staying 2 nights with new owners Shannon and Craig at Ashton Gate. Big smiles welcomed us after our day on the road and we quickly settled into our cosy, clean, warm and spacious room. The "olde worlde" charm of this historic guest house is evident as... More

Jennifer is the perfect hostess. She has recently sold the property but assures me that the new owners will be just a good. Her breakfasts are wonderful. Our room was perfect with great beds and a wonderful shower. Warm and cosy. This is where I will stay when I visit next.

A lovely place to stay in a fabulous location. Friendly and welcoming hostess, Jennifer, who is also a wonderful bread and raspberry jam maker. Breakfasts so inviting and the use of the guest lounge with open fire topped off the stay in a first class B and B. Thank you Jennifer

Loved the place! We stayed for 3 nights and did not have a negative thing to say about this beautifully decorated B&B. Great location, homemade breakfasts and reasonably priced. Felt very warm and welcoming. Would recommend to others for sure. Unfortunately the place is on the market but if u can get in beforehand, its worth it.

The rooms were beautifully appointed with full of old world charm. You can feel that Jennifer, the host, fully takes care of decorations in and around the house. We stayed in a room with two single beds and ensuite. A small table with pretty cups is also located in the room. There was no kitchen, however, lovely lounge and dining... More

The Ashton Gate Guest House was lovely! The house and rooms are decorated in full Victorian glory. We stayed in the Andrew Room, which had a comfy king-sized bed and was absolutely beautifl. The house also had a sitting room with books, brandy, cookies, tea and coffee. Our room had fresh cream for our tea in the in-room refrigerator. The... More

The property is located just on the outskirts of Launceston and within easy walking distance of town. Great going downhill, but don't eat too much before the walk back uphill!!! Jennifer is a charming hostess who adds a very relaxed feel to this most traditional of B&B's. Quaint period furniture which has almost a colonial feel to it. It is... More

It is a very nice old colonial house with big rooms. The owner is very pleasant and there is free port and coffee/thee. Wifi is great as well. Big surprise was the breakfast! A lot of items homemade (bread, jam, lemon curd) and offered a egg service as well! We enjoyed it very much. Only reason for not giving max... More

Beautifully positioned amongst other period houses, at the top of the hill. Easy parking outside the front door. Spotlessly clean. Decor a little twee & dated, a 1980s interpretation of Victoriana, fake flowers, teddy bears & porcelain plates depicting cats. Wonderful breakfasts including homemade bread, yoghurt & jams, carefully cooked smoked,bacon & eggs with a wide choice of extras. Room... More
