“Central & great for the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We stayed at Elphin Villas on Fri 15th Nov for 2 nights with our two children (2&4). The villa was clean and tidy and we loved the little courtyard that the kids could play in. It wasn't huge but then again you don't need a huge place to stay in when you're on holidays. It's central to the shops & attractions and the reception staff are so helpful. They sent us to a lovely restaurant that we would never have found otherwise. We loved it so much we've already booked to go back in a couple of months.

We stayed at the Elphin Villas recently with our daughter and her 3 small children. We had a 3 bedroom unit which was excellent for our needs. The location was perfect, with a large supermarket opposite and the lovely city park within easy walking distance. We had plenty of milk, tea and coffee provided. Would recommend Elphin Villas to all but particularly to families who are looking for reasonably priced, clean accommodation.

I have stayed at Elphin Villas three times now and it seems to always be offering something extra each time. They now offer complimentary wifi which is a bonus, and reception staff are more than happy to meet every request (i.e. DVD Player available on request, fresh milk, extra tea and coffee, extra pillows, early check in as soon as the room is available). While this is a mid-range hotel, they seem to be going the extra mile to ensure guests are comfortable and impressed with their stay. All requests were met and I think this is the biggest bonus of choosing this family run hotel in the pleasant Eastern side of the Launceston CBD.

Also love the Coles Kmart complex across the road, they are open 24 hours meaning you will never have any troubles.

Rooms are exceptionally clean. I see a lot of reviews claiming they are 'basic' - it really depends which room you book!!! If you want the full facilities book the 3 bedroom Deluxe Villa as this is where we choose to stay and offers all the comforts of home - it is a 2 level apartment with full kitchen, dining table for 6, lounge, private courtyard, and 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms. Very homely tuscan feel!

Room Tip: Rooms 23, 25, 27 are at the back of the property and very secluded/quiet/away from the street and ot...

We stayed over the weekend with other family and children in another villa. Nice and clean, good service and family friendly. It was a bit noisy at night due to its location, mainly due to the sports center over the road but great location for the city and city park.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Travelled with a family group of six adults for one night, the first stop of a trip around Tasmania.
We requested a 3 bedroom villa that had two bathrooms as we had six adults, and were granted that request. The bedrooms and main bathroom were upstairs, with a second bathroom, kitchen, dining and living area downstairs and a small courtyard. The bedrooms were quite small and the kitchen wasn't very well equipped (eg only two very small saucepans, so was difficult to cook a pasta dish for 6 people), but we coped for one night. The location was convenient as there was a Coles and Kmart literally across the road. It was reasonably priced, and met our needs, but I would only recommend it for a short stay.

Very handy location, good beds and pillows. All the staff were pleasant and helpful. Not first class but very clean and comfortable, lots of room, would be great for several days stay. Showers are good they dont trickle out.
