“Lovely apartments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

We needed to be in Launceston for just one night. The decision to stay at the Apartments at York Mansions was from previous Trip Advisor reviews and its location.

On arrival which was after dark we were met by John owner, a very welcoming person and escorted to the Baroness Apartment.

My wife and I love the older historic look, feel and style of buildings. The Baroness Apartment was all this and more, and on entering it was warm with a homely and comforting feeling : )

Our apartment consisted of:

- Master Bedroom with queen bed, side tables, and standalone cupboard for hanging clothes, single chair and suitcase stand.

- Second bedroom with 2 single beds

- Bathroom with walk in shower, toilet and vanity

- Kitchen with fridge, oven, cook top, microwave and enough utensils to get by

- Lounge, 2 seater a 1 seat, good size digital TV and DVD player with a selection of DVD’s, gas fire, small dining table for four, coffee table and bookshelves with a wide range of old looking books

I loved the queen bed as it was firm, but my wife doesn't but she still slept well. And the pillows, I am fanatical about my pillows as to me a bad sleep can ruin a trip. And I must say they were very comfortable, and there were spares of similar quality, not often seen in other accommodation places.

The position of the apartments is a good climb up the hill from the Launceston Mall, but not hard and overall we loved the Apartment at York Mansions.

Well done, and we have decided on our return we will go back, big tick.

P.s. Lovely terraced gardens at the rear of the property.

Room Tip: Although on a some what busy road, the bedrooms are at the back, did not hear the traffic.

Comfy, 2 BR fully appointed apartment. We had an upstairs apartment, the balcony out onto the street with views of the hills and town were magical on a warm day. The style of the decor may not suit everyone's tastes. The living area was large with plenty of seating, separate dining table, and kitchen was well stocked with large fridge, plenty of crockery and cutlery, stove and oven. Whilst appliances were dated, everything was clean and functional. Some cold nights, no central heating but dedicated gas log heater in the living area which was more than enough for that room, and smaller portable column heaters for the BRs. Cupboards in the BRs for storage. Flat screen TV, DVD player and micro sound system in the living area. We particularly chose this place because of the in-apartment washing machine and dryer, with 2 kids was very useful. Great attentive service from our hosts John and Anne. Dedicated off-street parking for our hired car. A short walk to Brisbane St mall!

Stayed in Launceston for 2 nights. My 2 friends and I were upgraded from the Countess Room to the Duchess Room at no extra cost at the Manager's request. The 2 bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds are excellent. The accommodation is in easy walking distance to the Mall and town centre.
The Manager was friendly and provided helpful tips on where to eat, places to see, things to do, etc.

Our family of four stayed here for our two night visit to Launceston. We found the location was excellent for a walk into town ( 3 mins ) and to very good nearby restaurants. The owners provided a folder with restaurant recommendations and other tourist attractions which was helpful. We like period style accommodation, and this certainly fit the bill. It was very clean and well cared for.

The York mansions Duchess suite is roomy and has everything you will need. For those craving fresh clothes, there is a washing machine (toploading!) and dryer and a pulley clothes line as well. Washing powder sachets supplied at $2 (seemed slightly niggardly to charge?). Well equipped kitchen. Nice period decor in this 1840 building, historically uneven floors, roomy lounge and main bedroom. Bed is decidedly firm. Second bedroom is up steep stairs in attic space and is less comfortable. Free internet connection via wireless modem (strong signal). No aircon (not needed with strong through-flow). Good shower + large spa bath. Supermarket 10 min walk away.

The situation in York street is OK, but not particularly attractive: mixture of commercial buildings and period houses, back side of the city away from the river. Slightly unsalubrious flats in large house next door. Communal staircase gives slight “boarding-house” feel. However, none of that was particularly bad and the apartment is certainly comfortable and functional. Easy to enter and exit city at various points. And no doubt quieter than waterfront accommodation. Nice private gardens and trees, tables and chairs, out back. Only limited accommodation offerings in Launceston. York Mansions is worth considering.

The York apartments are quaint, excellently located and the hosts are indeed friendly and helpful. While I gave it a rating of 4 I do have one criticism. I stayed at the Baroness Suite with my mother and sister. The main bedroom has a wonderful bed, the kitchen is more than adequate and the bathroom excellent. The second bedroom however is very small and has two very uncomfortable single beds which I think are not really suitable for adults. My sister was not able to sleep on the bed but fortunately the lounge was comfortable. I feel the apartments are more suitable for a couple or a family with very young children. Sleep quality rates highly for me and this was a let down.

As for breakfast, this is not a criticism just a misunderstanding. I thought breakfast was included in the rate but it wasn't.

I don't want Ann and John to think that we didn't enjoy our stay at the York we certainly did but I think the bed situation needs to be pointed out to future travellers. I don't know why people thought location is noisy and rooms are not warm we thought the opposite.

We recently stayed in the Duchess apartment for 3 nights. It has a textured, heritage feel, while still being clean and very comfortable. The living / dining room was large, well furnished, and heated by a gas fireplace. The bedroom was warm and the bed, while a little creaky, was fine. The kitchen is well supplied and more than adequate for eating in. The usual managers were away, but the lady helping out was friendly and helpful. The rear garden is a pleasant and quiet spot.

The apartments are only minutes walk from shops and restaurants etc, and it is just a brisk stroll to attractions like the Gorge.

All in all, we found this place comfortable and clean, reasonable value and well located. We will have no problem re-booking there again when we next visit Launceston.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with steps, a lower apartment may be more suitable.
