We spent 2 nights here recently. We were well rewarded. Comfortable period room in a restored sympathetically repaired and restored 1850s inn, blending the old with the new(er) Welcoming and helpful hosts, Robyn and Bill. Breakfast was the real treat. House made yoghurt with house grown and made berry compote. House made jams change daily and you could stay a... More

Lovely part of Tassie, passing thru. Everything seemed to be too much trouble. The cooked breakfast did not happen as we were 10 minutes late and the only guests .....Really! Maybe the hosts were tired or something, bit hard to know.

Great hosts, fabulous breakfast and comfortable room. The only drawback was to get a room with 2 separate beds we had to go upstairs. Steep and long stairs. Otherwise would recommend a stay here if you have your own transport. Oh forgot the lovely garden.

I didn't really know what to expect from The Racecourse Inn but it pleasantly surprised. The Building has had a colourful history and was at one stage in disrepair and almost demolished. Staying you can't help but think the refurbishments are still going on (bare unpainted timber in places) but it doesn't take away from beautiful rooms and gardens. The... More

My husband and I stayed here for the the first night of our honeymoon and we highly recommend this lovely B+B. Longford is only a 15 minute drive from Launceston airport and is a good option if you want to be close to Launceston but would rather stay in a country village. The owners are very friendly, the breakfast was... More

Longford is only 15-min to the airport. We chose to stay there for an early flight out. It's a small lovely town. The host gave us very warm welcome. The building is well maintained in good condition. Fruits in its backyard parking. You must try dinner in this place. It was fantastic & reasonable price. Also good breakfast!!

We stayed with our two children in two attic rooms at the Racecourse Inn and what a delight it was! We received a very warm greeting from the host. Our rooms in the historic inn were large, comfortable , well appointed and had their own separate lounge/tv area. The floor boards creaked a little and the stairs were quite steep... More
