“Comfortable B&B conveniently located for Town Centre”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Fiona's B&B is located in the centre of Launceston, within 3 mins easy walking distance of town centre shops & amenities. The property is located on a back lot set well back from the road, so road noise in the rooms is minimal.
The property consists of four buildings, each with several units of different sizes accessed through their own front doors. The property has free off-street parking for all guests, and a breakfast room. It has more the feel of a motel than a B&B.
Our unit was a "Junior Suite", consisting of a spacious room with large bed and a sitting area with two chairs and coffee table. The unit had a large ensuite shower room with an excellent shower, as well as a small balcony overlooking the parking area.
The room decor was in neutral colour and in good condition. The room has free WIFI on request from reception, although this is not publicised on their web-site. There is also a free-standing air cooler/heater, but this was not very effective at cooling the room in the warm weather during our stay. There was no telephone in the room, nor any fly screens on the windows and doors. One criticism of our unit was the front door security, which was very flimsy with French doors secured by small bolts which were missing half of their screws. The unit did have plenty of spare power sockets.
The unit was very clean and regularly services with clean towels during our short stay. The unit had a small selection of snacks and drinks available for purchase.
The staff we met were very friendly, efficient and very helpful in giving us some tips about places to visit during our stay, all of which proved very useful.
Our room rate included a full cooked breakfast each day, which included cereals, juices, toast and beverages, as well as egg & bacon. The standard of the food was very good, the service prompt, and the breakfast room spacious and airy.
This was a very comfortable and convenient B&B, and we would happily recommend it to other travellers.

Fiona's is a great stay for couples and it is conveniently located but well off the street and away from the noise of the city. The hospitality and assistance in finding the best things to do and where to eat are provided by your hosts, Juanita and Steve. They also serve a great breakfast. The room is comfortable and even photo worthy.

Room Tip: Some have a view of the houses located on the mountainside.

Have stayed at Fiona's several times and love their suites. On this occasion we were with another couple so were offered one of the town houses. It was explained to us on booking that they weren't quite up to the standard of the suites.
They aren't but they were fine and for an extended stay in Launceston would be perfect for three or four people. They contain all that is required, full size fridge, microwave, full size oven and washing machine, flat screen TV, DVD player etc. Considering that you get your cooked breakfast include it is very reasonable at $120pn per couple,
The standard breakfast each day is eggs and bacon so if staying for a while this could become monotonous.
We were catching up with old friends, so it was perfect for us and in a great location.

Room Tip: Townhouse great for family or two couples.

In a quiet spot despite being in a central Launceston location, wonderfully tended gardens, a quirky cinese-aussie decor, nicely-cooked breakfast served with a smile. We went there in January with our three kids - all very good!

We stayed in the "loft" and were pleasantly surprised at how lovely the room was. We are tall people(over 6') but had no problem fitting in. The breakfast was excellent and the staff friendly, we would not hesitate staying there again. The place is very close to downtown Launceston and we had no problem walking to shops and restaurants. The weather was very warm while we were there and the room did get quite hot during the day, a small fan was provided but perhaps air conditioning would be needed by some to make it more pleasant.We would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: The Loft was private and warm.

We had a lovely two day stay at Fionas and found it to be comfortable, clean and well equipped. Very quiet due to being set back off the street, although right in the middle of launceston. Plenty of parking too. Hosts were very pleasant and helpful and cooked great breakfasts. Our only criticism is that the matress was too hard for our liking and we have never been a fan of two single beds joined together to make a large king. Overall, a great place to end our tour of Tasmania.
