Beautiful Victorian home. Very comfortable bed, tastefully decorated room, terrific shower and wonderful cooked breakfast served in a community dining space. Just what a B&B should be. Complimentary drinks and cookies are available in the reading/game room along with the usual tea and coffee. Internet is very strong in that room. No reservations in recommending this property if Launceston is... More

Our host Jennifer was very friendly & accommodating - we were most impressed when offered a complimentary upgrade upon arrival to the 'William' room! Breakfast was delicious, Port/Sherry/Musket & Chess in the evening was a romantic touch!

I stayed here for eight nights and felt at home from the moment that I arrived. Jennifer is all over everything, which means that all the details get her personal attention. So, of course the drinks and cookies are out each night in the common room and quality wine and beer are always available for purchase. She is very accommodating;... More

A classical Victorian bungalow with several rooms each very well appointed. Jennifer makes you very welcome and her breakfasts with homemade bread and jam and cooked meal to suit. Was our first stop in Tasmania and we would certainly book again next time we are in Launceston. Shortish downhill walk to the centre. Not so good walking back after a... More

We had a very nice stay with Jennifer, and was impressed with the house, our room and the area. It was like going back in time staying here with excellent bathroom facilities and a gentle ambiance prevailing. Highly recommended

We spent two nights here and loved the house and the breakfasts. Jennifer was a gracious host and breakfasts were delicious. The room was very comfortable and even though the weather was unseasonably hot, the house was very cool. We bought some cheese and wine and had one meal on the back deck which was lovely and we finished off... More

This is the second time I have stayed at Ashton Gate. Both rooms we stayed in were immaculate. The beds are very comfortable and the linen excellent quality. Jennifer prepares a wonderful breakfast and compliments it with home made breads, jams, and stewed fruits all served in the beautiful breakfast room. The staff are very friendly and always ready to... More

We spent a total of four nights here and had a wonderful time. The cooked breakfast is a feature with plenty of choice and home made bread. A bonus is meeting the other guests and sharing experiences. Jennifer, the host, made us very welcome and was always nearby to help with questions. The rooms are nicely decorated with excellent linen.... More

A great place to stay in launceston - located on a hill just on the city fringe, easily walkable to town but a big hill on the way back. Our room was spotlessly clean and we booked the spa suite which apart from an enormous bathroom also had a separate sitting room with TV and couch to relax in overlooking... More
