Two Four Two Boutique Apartments

Reviewed January 19, 2010

Our original plan was to stay at Two Four Two only for 1 night as we arrived in Launceston late at night. We loved it so much we organised to stay again the night before flying out.
The owners are lovely and very friendly. They run the shop on the ground floor which had a great collection of wine and crafty things. They provided lots of helpful advice and were friendly to chat with without intruding.
This was the first night of our honeymoon and it was a great way to start our Tasmanian experience. We stayed in the 1 bedroom. The entrance stairs were challenging, but not a problem. The apartment itself was modern and really well layed out for the space with defined kitchen, lounge & bedroom areas. They had iPod docking station and a small selection of DVDs. The bedroom was spacious and the bed very comfy and clean. White sheets on the bed and white towels in the bathroom. The kitchen was fitted out perfectly with a breakfast basket, a selection of wines for purchase and a coffee machine. All pots & pans that would be needed.
The location is pretty good, although you would be a bit of a hike to the main mall. But there are shops just outside and a supermarket a block down. It's on a one way street which is a bit confusing to find if you arrive at night with no idea of Launceston, but well worth the adventure.
We honestly loved this place so much, we ended up buying the ottomans for our own home! Trust the website for this one. I will return and recommend it to all.

We had a wonderful stay in the Terrace at Two Four Two in Launceston. Every amenity was provided, including ingredients to cook your own breakfast (not something we find in the USA). It was like having your own apartment and all the extras were there to make your stay enjoyable, including robes, dvds, magazines, travel info, pillow choices etc. For some, the spiral staircase could be awkward to negotiate with luggage but we loved the two level unit. Also check out the restaurant next door....for lunch we had a wonderful chorizo and shrimp pizza that I am still trying to recreate at home. You'll love the neighborhood charm and the concentration of restaurants within walking distance.....best area we found in Launceston.

Two Four Two "saved" Launceston for us. Amazing apartment in a great location, more than enough in the way of provisions, in a stylish, comfortable home from home. Only criticisms - the spiral staircase is a bit challenging - I would imagine anyone with mobility issues would struggle and we felt the need to block the top of the stairs every night as they directly feed into the bedroom and we are both sleep walkers! I also found I had to spend a bit of time clearing away the numerous piles of magazines & nick nacks to make room for our travelling bits & bobs. I'm not a fan of clutter & felt it detracted from the style of the place. BUT, it was great to come home after a day of travel & walking and we loved our stay here - lovely bed, great towels & plenty of them. I also really appreciated the free laundry facilities. This place should be set up as an example to the rest of Launceston!

We stayed in the bakehouse with 2 children for 2 nights. Breakfast and all the extra's priovided were amazing. A really great place to stay in Launceston which I would highly recommend it to everyone including families with young children.

We stayed in the Studio apartment. Loved everything about it.
Spotlessly clean and very comfortable.
Road a bit noisy during the night but not enough to put me off returning to this lovely apartment.

Two Four Two is well located amongst other heritage buildings. The hosts Katie and Alan have created unique and tres chic accommodation for the discerning traveller looking for that something different. We had an enjoyable stay in the studio apartment overlooking the trendy Charles St cafes, restaurants and the magnificent patisserie, Tant pour Tant. A great location for venturing out towards the Tamar Valley wineries and also the Bay of Fires including a luncheon at Angasi.

Spent three nights in the Bakehouse recently. Fabulous location with the best patisserie just down the road, in fact lots of good food really close. Close to city center and easy to get around. Not my usual type of accomodation (very modern) but fantastically comfortable. Touches like the hot water bottle, blankets, food on arrival, expresso machine and great wine were greatly appreciated. Hosts extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area which is always useful. I would stay again.
