“York Mansions was elegant, comfortable and in a great location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2008

We were one of three couples who stayed for two nights whilst attending a wedding in Launceston.
My partner and I had the "Duchess of York " apartment which had a loverly romantic theme and great city views.
One of the other couples was in the "Countess" and the other was in the "Baroness"
All were spacious with quite different themes, extremly comfortable and combining modern services with historic ambience.
We all loved the garden and enjoyed a wine sitting under it's huge oak tree.
All six of us loved the experience and are looking for an excuse to return.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2006

Perhaps we should have been warned by the fact that there was only one review on this hotel. It was written in 2004 and I feel the writer was wearing rose coloured glasses. The building is on a very busy street. The garden at the back very small and certainly not secluded as implied. On entering the building there is a very musty smell which persists and a very run down air to carpets and paintwork. I am sure when the previous owners did up the apartments they were very smart, but after 15 years they need a spruce up. I am afraid they are trading on the quaint effect for the American market. Even on a sunny day the apartments are dark. We stayed in the Baroness and the washing machine is perched outside the kitchen door, which has to be open and shut to access the machine and could prove to be very dangerous as it is at the top of quite steep stairs. We were very disappointed and would certainly not stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2005

This is a great place to stay. We stayed in the
"Baroness" apartment which has a real antique feel to it. I almost could see the "lady" herself in my sitting room. The apartment has two bedrooms a great bathroom(no bath though which my husband was disappointed in... I think he had visions of a great claw foot tub)a kitchen and a lovely "sitting room" complete with huge fireplace. Decor is really beautiful and you get the feeling you have stepped back in time. Launceston itself is on your doorstep(we had a view of fireworks from the Launceston show on our final night)The beds have electric blankets, trust me you will need them in Tasmania in wintertime. The gardens are beautiful(at the rear of the building)dont be put off by the front entrance,after all this is an old building. All in all I would recommend this place to all. Old world charm with all the mod-cons.
