242 Launceston is a fantastic little boutique lodging.
The owners have gone to enormous trouble to add the extra touches that make this special.
The decor, art works, DvD library, CD library, magazines had a lot of thought put in.
Breakfast supplies were excellent and self serve wine selection was great.
Sleep quality is excellent, comfortable bed and pillow selection were wonderful, and hotel is in a quiet side street.
Room (Bakehouse, 2 bdrm) was spacious, decent kitchen and fantastic bathroom. There is also a private courtyard with BBQ.
Positioning is excellent, short walk to CBD and many great restaurants.
We visited in winter, but rooms were pleasantly warm with heaters and heat pump, already going for our arrival.
The owners, Katie and her husband were very friendly and welcoming.
Can recommend this for travellers who are looking for a small, friendly, intimate hotel.

Room Tip: Bakehouse has good space for small family, both sleeping and living areas.

We stayed in the Terrace for two nights and found it quite comfortable. It is smallish and they have done what they can with limited space but the shower over the bath never really does it for me. On the other hand the bed was huge and very comfy. Loved the wine from the maxi bar (but not the beer). A fairly central location within easy walking distance to some very nice restaurants. The only real downside was the car parking. If you have a large (and expensive) car there is not much room for error and you have to rely on fellow guests not to 'door' you. Overall, we enjoyed our stay

We stayed in the Terrace with our bub.

The minuses:
* It sounds a bit dumb - but one main disappointment was the baked goods - out of a packet, not fresh baked which I had been looking forward to.
* The other downside was one of my pillows had a black mark on it,
* Lack of space in the lounge for us to put our own items (art magazines seemed to cover all the tables, seats etc.)
* The steep, narrow and windy stair case inside the apartment (only an issue as we had to be extra careful carrying bub up and down)

The pluses:
* Definitely the location - easy walk to cafes, coles and the city (we were even able to put bub to sleep in the pram, and wheel her out to dinner and back)
* the included provisions (with the exception of the store bought cookies)
* the umbrella in the room for use if it rained (thought this was a nice touch)
* the laundry room (convenient for longer stays) and
* comfy beds!

I expected an amazing experience given the reviews I had read of Trip Advisor, and whilst the overall stay was very good, I was a bit disappointed.

Room Tip: We stayed in the terrace - its got a very narrow, windy, steep staircase that leads upstairs - so it...

Everything about The Studio at TwoFourTwo was top quality although the aircon struggled on occasion to keep up with the exceptionally hot autumn weather. The location is excellent with a good choice of cafes and restaurants close by. The room was very well equipped and we enjoyed the included breakfast provisions.

a work colleague and I stayed at two four two for one night on a business trip. I have stayed at this wonderful boutique apartment four years ago and it is still the same classy, comfortable, well appointed accommodation that I experienced back then. We stayed in the Bakehouse as it has two bedrooms, this is a really excellent option for business travel as the cost is significantly less than two hotel rooms, plus you get a lounge area, every possible entretainment option you could wish for, a luxurious bathroom, gorgeous comfortable beds and breakfast provisions that are generous and delicious. The Bakehouse also has a delightful courtyard complete with a bbq. I can't fault two four two it is a gem

Room Tip: if you are travelling on business and need the two beds it is worth noting the second bedroom is up...

Our 2 week holiday to Tassie included a few nights in Launceston before doing the Bay of Fires walk. We booked into Number 10. Everything that you could want for was there. Magazines, fresh coffee, a breakfast hamper of fresh apple juice, eggs, bread, cereals. The location is great, only about 5 blocks from the centre of Launceston, cafes and restaurants very close by, a supermarket a block away. We loved the space in Number 10, so much better than a cramped hotel room. On our return from BoF we booked into the Studio. Again, very well equipped and beautifully presented.

Staying at Number 10 was added to our list of Tasmanian highlights.
The attention to detail was exceptional, from exquisite linen, to apples on your pillow, fresh flowers, a jar full of fresh biscuits, games for the children, magazines...the list is endless.
Coming home to a fully equipped house (with our 3 tired children) at the end of a busy day was fantastic.
It allowed us all to sit and relax and we felt like it was our home away from home.
The location was exceptional. It enabled us to leave the car and explore Launceston by foot.
Restaurants and coffee shops are on your doorstep.
We travelled around Tasmania for 2.5 weeks by car staying in various types of accomodation.
Number 10 was the highest quality accommodation we were fortunate to stay in and we can't recommend it highly enough.
Katie was a delight to meet and a pleasure to communicate with during the booking and arrival process.
We look forward to going back again in the near future.
