This venue looks pleasant on the internet and so we chose it as a self contained unit (family unit) . Our great disappointment was the heavily stained carpet in the living area that made the space unattractive rather than "cosy" . The carpet is very tired and stained. It would be worthwhile having tiles in this area as it is... More

24/04/16. Stayed three nights in this Georgian house 500 metres from CBD. A heritage building, built 120 years ago and now converted to about 9 rooms, each with own bathroom. Friendly and efficient owner/manager. Very comfortable. Bathroom tiny, but worked. Bedroom large with high ceilings, many paintings and quiet with secure parking at rear. Good value for a short stay... More

Lovely room, with a mini kitchen that had all you needed to make your stay comfortable. Bathroom was small but clean and tidy. Port and sherry laid on with a comfy sofa to enjoy it on. Very helpful person checked us in and helped with our bags. The street out the front is busy to try the car out of... More

I chose this hotel because I like old buildings. The room is cosy and has everything you need, even mini kitchen! You can heat food and do simple cooking in a microwave. In the living area on 2nd floor, they give free Sherry and Tawny Port to drink. In room, they give you two apples. Little things that we didn't... More

We paid for an upgrade to a spa room but was disappointed to discover it was in the front of the building which is adjacent to a busy city road. Traffic noise tended to be annoying until 10.00pm and noticeable again from about 6.00am the next morning. Disappointed with the slow WiFi speed during our visit.

Kilmarnock House is a beautiful old residence in a nice part of Launceston. We were passing through and only stayed one night, but would have stayed longer if we could. The room we stayed in was just gorgeous and very well equipped. The bathroom was tiny, but that didn't detract from the room. Onsite parking is provided, and the ingenious... More

Kilmarnock House presents as a quaint historical residence which appears charming to the overnight short term guest but as we discovered in a week long stay that it is very much lacking in service of the quality expected for the price. Minimal care or interest is shown. Towels are changed upon request but very little else. To expect more substantial... More

I could get past that my room had no balcony even though it was advertised to of had one, and that the bathroom reminded me of what you would expect in a motor home/ caravan, or the hospital bed sheets. It was when I misplaced my key and after looking everywhere I polietly asked the man doing the ironing (who... More

We stayed here a year ago and were charmed. At that point the new owners had just taken over. We chose to stay again because of the comfort, charm and convenience. Regrettably, things have declined since our previous visit. Breakfast supplies and daily room servicing are no longer offered. Cobwebs abound and curtains are torn. The service is still very...

I stayed for only one night but could have stayed longer. I had the Honeymoon Suite which was absolutely beautiful. A large period room with a very comfortable bed, a fab spa and was very quiet. All the linen was near new and fresh and clean. The building is a stunner Edwardian with loads of charm. The owners were very... More
