As someone who grew up in Launceston, I thought I knew all the good spots. We've also stayed in numerous places in Launceston over the years, but had never come across FRA. While on the outside, the apartments look a little out of date, and indeed on the inside, they are a work in progress, there is plenty to rave about, from the views to the raspberry muffin mix ready to make. Plenty of space to spread out, (we stayed in Apartment C, which is the biggest), lots of utensils, cooking space and tools. We enjoyed the fudge... very nice touch. I'd highly recommend FRA. The only problem we had was with parking on street, where our hire car was side swiped, leaving us an expensive bill to pay. A not so nice Christmas present to wake up to. The moral of that story is beware. The other apartments have off street parking, so you won't have a problem if you are not staying in C.
