Almost at the top of the hill in Arthur St, Highbury Apartments is walking distance to the CBD but the last 200 metres up the hill are not for the faint-hearted! The good news is that, on one occasion we gave-in and took a cab from the Pennyroyal district on the other side of the city centre and it was... More

We stayed here inadvertently after a major Launceston hotel bungled our booking. The apartments are in a good position overlooking Launceston and our apartment was huge with adequate facilities and an ideal working area with great views. The manager was the friendliest, most helpful lady. The price was more than reasonable. Most attractions are within a 10 minute walk and... More

The Highbury Apartments are in a fantastic location with off street parking. The apartment we stayed in was very clean and and there were views of the river and city. The per night rate seemed quite high compared other places we have stayed at. There was no cable TV (which is a must in our opinion) and some of the... More

one of the beds here was so terrible, i had to use pillows to sleep on! The place is tired and in need of a reno. Enough supplies for 3 people for 1 day, although 4 people were staying 3 days. Generous with bread and butter. Lighting was dim throughout the property, so dont plan to read! However the place... More

We stayed here the second time last week & again found it to be comfortable, good value accommodation with a friendly hostess. The apartments have all the facilities you'd want, including some basic breakfast food and drinks provided for you, although the 2nd bedroom in at least one is inconveniently small and the free wifi very patchy. Most have an... More

The well-appointed apartment was downstairs, which is recommended for older visitors and those with heavy luggage. The owners have put a lot of thought into what will be needed, including a laundry in the bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked, the furniture was comfortable and the location perfect.

Our family enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom apartment. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was quiet and a reasonably roomy. The living and eating were particularly spacious and it was a nice touch to have some basic foods provisions provided on arrival. The bathroom also doubled as a laundry which means it is a tight squeeze in... More

We stayed twice over the course of one week, staying upstairs in apartment 5, spectacular views over Launceston CBD, 2 very comfortable bedrooms, very functional kitchen, plentiful breakfast provisions, with a short (but steep) walk from the centre of town the perfect way to finish the day. Very much home away from home, and owner Kate very accommodating and eager... More

We stayed foir a couple a nights recently as a family group in 2 of the Highbury apartments. We were very comfortable, the apartments were clean and we found the heritage style quiet charming. Thankyou to Kate for sharing her local knowledge with us. We would choose to stay @ Highbury apartments again.
