“A charming and delightful stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

We arrived after a long journey at Ashton Gate, and warmly greeted by a friendly host who showed us around a lovely victorian house. It was delightfully furnished - a real joy and pleasure to stay there. Our room was 'Emma' , which was a beautiful bedroom with a large modern bathroom. The hostess took time to book an evening restaurant for us, and gave us good walking directions that avoided walking back up the steep hill.
Next morning we enjoyed a good hearty breakfast with great atmosphere and conversations amongst the guests.
We would have liked to stay longer than the one night but we had all our accommodation booked upfront by our travel agent. We'll certainly be back to Launceston and look forward to another stay here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

We recently stayed here for a few nights having found this property through Tripadvisor. It is comfortable and well maintained with a variety of room types and a good website where you can clearly see all the options. There's also a pleasant garden, which was full of roses when we arrived. The owners were very helpful with both restaurant and touring suggestions and clearly seem to enjoy having guests to stay. It is very well located, within walking distance of the town centre and although we had some concerns about street noise we in fact slept soundly and were not really disturbed by traffic. All in all it was an excellent choice.

Had a wonderful stay at the Ashton Gate guest house. Owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Was in a great location. The hot breakfast was excellent. Decor was lovely, particularly the sitting room. Highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Ashton Gate was just picture perfect! Pity we only stayed there one night but the property is just lovely. The rooms are comfortable and make you feel like you are living in the country. You sink into their couches and just don't want to get up again. They're in front of a park and just at the end of the road from the shops - just watch out for that hill!

Arrived with 2 friends who had already booked a room. I had no booking as I hadn't planned to be in Launceston that night but due to snow in the central highlands I missed the Redline coach.
John was very friendly and had a room there right ready to go, everything was very clean and even had gluten free bread for breakfast.
Nice stay, great service and far quieter than a lot of Launceston accommodation options.

We stayed in Ashton Gate House in May and we found the accomadation to be excellent. The hot breakfast you were offered was excellent. There was also fruit, muesli and yogurt to help yourself. The faculities were amazing. The Sitting Room was very relaxing to read or just sip on the sherry that was complimentry. The bed and ensuite facilities were also immaculate. The bed was very large and comfortable. The close proximentry to the city was great. Jennifer gave us the highest of service and I would recomend Ashton Gate House to any one that wants a hassle freee and very relaxing holiday 10 out of 10 for us

Me and my husband stayed at Ashton Gate Guest House for 2 nights and were really impressed! The rooms are so beautiful and decorated with great sophisticated taste to Victorian era (we stayed at William), everything is so comfortable and clean. We spent some time in the lounge room that is the most amazing and comfortable lounge room I have ever seen, we played chess and cards while having complimentary wine or tea with home made biscuits. Breakfast was so delicious and there was a good choice of egg dishes. Loved the atmosphere of this house and hospitality of Jennifer. If you are to stay in Launceston look no further, highly recommend!

Room Tip: Loved William room
