“amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

The property is amazing
filled with light and character the kitchen is just superb (as is every other room)we intended to eat out however l couldn't resist cooking in it every night!
we are an extended family of 6 one only 3 yrs old and it was so roomy and comfortable we never felt like we were on top of each other and the fully fenced yard was fantastic for the little one
Twyford is perfectly situated for a day (or several) of shopping at the lovely gift and boutique shops just a block away or in Launceston 5mins further down the rd or as a base as you visit the fantastic raspberry farm and other points of interest we had a wonderful time and Bron was so helpful and full of knowledge on ways to make the most of our holiday could not recommend this property and the service we received more highly

Thanks so much for your lovely review Bonnie, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay! I must admit the kitchen is our favourite room in the house. There is so much to do in and around Launceston and we are glad you enjoyed the location of Twyford. Hope to see you again one day!

“Poor communication created an unfortunate experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013 for a stay in November 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Unfortunately, we did not have as positive an experience as our fellow tenants. Having never had an issue in our many house rentals previously, strictly applied terms and conditions and Gruff communication when seeking an explanation on the withholding of part of our bond left our family feeling glum. There is nothing worse than leaving a holiday feeling taken advantage of unless perhaps it is having to revisit your negative experience in a review (which until now we have never felt compelled to do). The management of this property are evidently house proud... It is a truly lovely property but we left feeling as if we had paid for the experience of staying in a showroom rather than in a home. If the intention of your stay is to truly 'make yourself at home', you may want to consider other options.

As an operator of award winning properties, the vast majority of our guests are a joy to deal with and treat Twyford as they would the house of a family friend. At ALL times these guests were communicated with at EVERY level, We certainly don’t expect the property to be in “show room” condition after a stay, but as per the terms and conditions do ask that the house is left in good condition including the kitchen. Guests are made aware of what constitutes terms and conditions and it is extremely rare for any bond to be withheld. After the stay, my cleaner advised that the kitchen was left in unreasonable condition and she would be required to perform extra cleaning at an additional cost to us of $40 The guest was advised in advance by email that the $40 would be withheld from the bond and given the reasons why. Photos taken by my cleaner to justify her extra work time were provided to the guest. The remaining bond was deposited to the guest’s bank account immediately after they were advised that the $40 would be witheld. The amount of bond taken was only what was necessary despite the threats of a bad review by the guests. Extremely disappointing as a phone call the day that they left (late of course) prior to inspection advised how much they enjoyed the property

Thanks very much Suzanne for your great review and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Good news - there is a BBQ, I just don't have it out over the Tassie winter! (You will have to come visit us in summer to check it out :)

“Footy trip to Launceston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Over to see the footy at Tasmania from Melbourne for a night and stayed at Twford Class with 3 friends. This house is an absolute gem. Heaps of local character and the owner has payed a lot of attention to detail, thinking about most anticipated needs. There are four well appointed bedrooms which would suit a family or group, a living area, two toilets and in addition a separate living room. The kitchen was also very well equipped - though we did not use it. On those cold Launceston nights it was really nice to come back from a day of footy in the Tasmanian elements to heaters which had already automatically switched on. There was even a couple of beers in the fridge and bowl of chocolates (thought these had to be paid for by an honours system but still a very nice thought). The owner Bronwyn was also very personable and rang to check up on arrangements before arriving and emailed details back promptly - she also likes to talk about the footy which is a real plus, even though she doesn't support my team ! I would recommend this house for any one want to stay in Launceston as a group or family.

Thanks very much for your great review!
We are glad you had a great time, even though the right team didn't win!
We have tried to make sure that Twyford is fully equipped with everything our guests need to ensure their time aware is the best possible for them.
The kitchen and the extra living area makes sure that even large groups can still "do their own thing" whilst still enjoying time away together.
Hope to see you again for another visit- maybe in Summer next time!
Kind regards
