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

We 3 were blessed when we found Ashton Gate and Jennifer. Had a booking elsewhere in Launceston that the owners couldn't find, so without a place to stay and fortunately, Jennifer could offer us 2 rooms for 2 nights. Situated in hilly East Launceston a 10 minute walk to the centre. From the moment you enter Ashton Gate, a lovely... More

Jennifer was a kind and welcoming hostess to this pretty and quaint B&B. Located on a hill just above the main area of Launceston, it was close to things, yet still private. Rooms were nicely appointed and breakfast was extensive. Port was available in the sitting room. Our only mild complaint was that the wifi reception was limited to the... More

Just re-visited our favourite B&B in Launceston. A cold and wintry night, but a lovely warm wood heater in the guest lounge, and tea/coffee plus port (him) and muscat (me). Our room is decorated in Wedgwood style, and looks very period, but the electric blanket is also welcome. Breakfast was as usual wonderful, choice of eggs (poached - him, scrambled... More
