“Quiet and modern equipped house with great views over launceston.”

The house is clean and modern inside. It is a short distance to centre of town. You can walk to visit the monkeys at City Park for free. The Le Café has great breakfasts and is only 5 minutes walk away from the house if you don't want to cook.. If you like Thai food, Buddha Thai Restaurant has great fresh tasting dishes and you must have the organic coffee! There is pretty scenery to get to Bridport but a windy drive. You can drive out of Launceston to other towns in such a short time. The cataract gorge is worth seeing too. People are friendly.

“Great Place to stay even when the weather is bad”
Reviewed October 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Other reviewers have commented on the quality of the fittings and furnishings and I would have to agree. We stayed in the cottage when the Launceston weather was cold, extremely windy and raining heavily. It was a real test of the heating system and it performed admirably.
The cottage is situated high on one side of the valley overlooking the CBD. It was an older style cottage that had been completely renovated and modernised on the inside whilst preserving the external appearance of the original cottage. The owner has provided all that was needed in a self contained cottage. Note that street parking outside the cottage is the only option. However this presented no difficulties during our stay. There are very good views over the CBD from the verandah which would be a very pleasant place to sit when the sun is shining. The wifi worked well and there is no extra charge unlike some of the large hotels. Would definitely stay here again

Perfectly located and appointed accommodation in Launceston. The outlook and views, particularly at night, are spectacular. The house is a lovely period home, and contains everything that is needed, with high quality furnishings and fittings, including the huge bonus of washing machine and dryer. Spotlessly clean and extremely quiet surroundings. Great parking just outside and very short walk down into town and all shops, restaurants and other amenities. Owner met us personally on arrival, greatly appreciated. All in all one of the very best holiday rental experiences ever. Very very highly recommended!

“Well located and appointed”
Reviewed July 29, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Excellent heating in both bedrooms, kitchen / living area. The hot water system also worked well for showers.
There is a meals area with table / chairs and couches in the living area with TV. Free fast WiFi is a bonus.
Other equipment includes fridge / freezer, microwave, hotplate, oven, dishwasher, washing machine.
Well located walking distance from CBD and also has a view due to its elevation. It is also a quiet street with not much traffic.

There is parking for 2 cars in bays in front of the house on the road.
Thanks Peter for being such an accommodating host and we will certainly be keen to stay in Welman Cottage again next time we are in Launceston.

“Would definitely stay again”
Reviewed March 20, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Very comfortable, modernised, with everything we needed. Fairly close to the main CBD. A top little cafe just around the corner. Great views from the balcony. Peter was very easy to deal with and would recommend his properties to anyone.
