“Cosy stay with a historic feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

Convenient location in a quiet area. The lady host was extremely friendly and helpful. She was attending to the flowers outside when we arrived. Within a jiffy, she had 2 of of luggage bags carried up to our room on the 1st floor. The overall display gives one a wonderful feel of being transported back to the heritage age. Breakfast was freshly prepared while we were still in bed by Steve, and the dining is area is simply beautiful and cosy.

This place was recommended to me by my sister: awesome historic home in a heritage district. We had adjoining rooms that were modest but comfy and clean. Close to all amenities in town. Sensational home made breakfasts. The owner, Steve is a wealth of information on all things Launceston.

Booked in for 4 nights in what appeared to be a quite charming old home, other members of my family had chosen this, and we wanted to stay in the same place. I had called the owners prior to booking and let them know I suffered from a dust allergy. I asked for a room with floorboards - usually better - they had only one. Upon arrival was horrified to find as soon as I entered the room I could smell mustiness and dust. I started reacting immediately. They showed me round a few different rooms and I chose one that seemed the least dusty. I opened all the windows and to air it while we went out for dinner. On return, got my child ready for bed, but it became clear that this just was not going to work and in fact I started to get an asthmatic reaction - something that hasn't happened for about 20 years! Called around to find somewhere else to stay and not seeing any obvious way to talk to hosts, left to rush to the other hotel where i had to book in by 10 pm. I called the next morning and they charged me $130 for the night, but not for the four nights thank goodness. A bit of a traumatic start to our Launceston trip! My other family reported they had no problem with the place and enjoyed the breakfast - pity we had no chance to try it!

This B&B is surely good value for money and the magnificient home made breakfast is just too good to be true. The B&B owner and manager will surely help you with anything you may need and ensure you have a comfortable stay.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2010

The house is old and beautiful with lovely trees in the garden. The hosts are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is wonderful. However, the rooms are disappointing. Our room seemed to be unoccupied for a while - the quilts and curtains were dusty. The double size bed was a rollaway bed which shifted easily - revealing more dust underneath.

This is a lovely Victorian style house which is full of character in a quiet leafy location in Launceston.The location is ideal as it is only 5 minutes walk to City Park and 20 mins to Catarach Gorge.The hosts are extremely friendly and take pride especially in their delicious breakfasts which includes all home made breads,jams,yoghurts,museli,muffins etc.The rooms are a good size and are spotlessly clean.Highly recommended.
