“Well thought out renovation.”
Reviewed November 7, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Great views of the city of Launceston from this cottage.I stayed with my extended family and we were inspired by the renovation.Might be a bit of a hike up the hill with small children as it is a great place to leave the car and walk.Clean,fresh and well equipped all around.Thankyou to the owners for sharing this gem.

“Superb base in Launceston”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Spent three nights here and could not fault the cottage. Spotless, lots of air and light, two bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen and comfortably furnished. High speed internet (NBN), wide district and river views, quiet. and peaceful. Hills to climb if not driving but close to lots of dining options. Owner is friendly and accommodating.
Highly recommended.

This is a beautifully renovated cottage suitable for up to two couples. The owner is very helpful. It's in a great location, an easy drive or walk to many of Launceston's attractions.

“Excellent Launceston accommodation”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in Welman cottage for two days on arriving in Tasmania and a further two days before departure. The property is beautifully presented and has magnificent views across Launceston from the balcony. Peter is an excellent host and has the property well stocked with all you need to make for a very comfortable stay. The one downside is the reasonably steep stairs to get to the front door, but this is a very acceptable compromise for a property set on the hills above Launceston. The stairs are easily negotiated by anyone who is reasonably fit (we are in our late 60s) and Peter not only made us welcome but helped us with our baggage - thank you Peter for being such an excellent host. The full laundry, free high speed internet and very close proximity to supermarkets, restaurants and the centre of Launceston make Welman Cottage a very desirable place to stay in Launceston.

Great place for a short or long term stay. We were greeted warmly by the owner and shown around the property and its great facilities. Fantastic view over launceston with a great verandah for sipping a brew and enjoying the nightlights. Great location central with easy walking stroll to town and cafes. Beautifully clean facilities. Will definitely stay again!

“Cosy cottage with great views”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Welman cottage is situated high above Launceston with sparkling night lights and sweeping views down the river. The cottage is warm and the front lounge/dining/kitchen room is lovely. Peter, the owner met us on time with no fuss. there are some stairs into the property but easy parking out the front. Perfect for a couple.
