Overlooking the Tamar Valley and Launceston city centre, Highfield House is a picturesque historical site offering a suburb bed and breakfast experience. The Victorian estate was founded in 1860 by William Henty and retains the charm of its many original features. It has recently been refurbished to a high quality and evokes a perfect mix of Tasmanian History and contemporary ambience. Although just a few minutes walk to dynamic Launceston city centre and all it has to offer, Highfield House provides boutique suites and services that will make you feel the laid-back, relaxing lifestyle that Tasmania is famed for. All rooms include free wifi, free off-street parking, mini bar stocked with Tasmanian produce, electric blankets, tea and coffee making facilities. You can also enjoy our complimentary continental breakfast in either our dining room, or in our sunny courtyard that boasts stunning views.

Lovely Victorian house with a few rooms. Clean, airy, friendly place where we felt immediately relaxed and at home. Positioned overlooking town but easy access to everything. We loved it and recommend it.
