We enjoyed a great evening at the Race Course Inn, Annabel and Richard were warm and friendly hosts. The Inn itself was delightful - rooms great and the food presented and cooked with great care. Conveniently close to Launceston Airport and proved a great spot to start our Tassie holiday

We stayed at the Racecourse Inn in Longford (near Launceston) for three nights in June. It is a beautiful old Georgian house with period furniture. The inn is a good launch pad to visit nearby Brickendon (a working farm established in colonial times and originally run with convict labour) and historic Woolmers, which is a world heritage site similar to...

Arriving at The Racecourse Inn admittedly gave rise to a slight cause for concern. It was not late, but it was already dark, and so I drove into the wrong drive (my fault for not pausing to look at the signage provided) and then I found the correct car park and nearly went to the wrong door (again, the signage...

Dear Steve, Thanks for your constructive comments about the room that you stayed in. We have replaced the errant bin and will service the heater to ensure that it's quieter. It was a pleasure to have you to stay and lovely to chat to you over dinner and I hope that you'll visit Longford again. More

We stayed at the Racecourse Inn, primarily because of proximity to AgFest and we also wanted an historical B & B experience. This lovely B & B was an old coaching inn, kept true to character and with a wonderful history behind it, even a ghost! The rooms was gorgeous with a beautiful queen sized bed, antique furniture and heavy... More

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!!
