“Beautiful Relaxing "Attention to Detail" B & B”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

My wife Lisa and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ashton Gate Guest House. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and it was the best B & B we stayed in. It was immaculate. The accommodation showed great attention to detail. After a long day we enjoyed relaxing in the sitting room infront of the fire!
The cooked breakfast was delicious!
Our host made us feel at home.
We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

We have once again had a wonderful night at Ashton Gate. We stay here several times a year, drawn back by the wonderful hospitality, the beautiful period furnished rooms, the friendly guests common room, and of course, BREAKFAST. While parking is on the street, it is not the main road, but a service road for the buildings along it, and has always been easy. We most often choose to take the room "William", but all the rooms are comfortable and spacious and beautifully decorated. Tea, coffee & biscuits are available in the room if you want to watch tv. The common room also has coffee, teas and biscuits plus decanters of port, sherry and muscat free for residents to enjoy on arrival or after dinner in the city. In winter, there's a friendly wood stove. Breakfast is a classic B&B. Cereals, homemade breads, unlimited tea and coffee, and a menu of cooked ingredients. Plus homemade jam and lemon curd. I will be back soon.

Stayed in cottage this time. Lovely, great breakfast and Jennifer is a lovely host. Stayed in campbell room last year with spa bath. We travelled around Tasmania for two weeks so the kitchen in the cottage was very handy.

I have been coming to launceston for the past eight years on business. Have stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts and hotels and this is the best by far. Should be ranked number 1 as have stayed at kurrajong twice and this is far superior. Great breakfadts cooked with homemade bread,unobtrusive host, able to use sitting room as board room for my meetings with clients, extremely clean, able towork in my room which was large and spacious throughout the day. Very good free wifi. Definitely recommend value for money and will stay here on my annual trip from now on.

Ashton Gate would have to be one of the nicest Bed and Breakfast I've every Stayed at. Jennifer the host was extremely helping sorting a taxi for me and her local Tasmanian knowledge was extremely helpful, If fact we stayed 2 extras nights, just from her recommendations.
Breakfast was cooked to perfection, just the way I liked it. Thanks Jennifer

We stayed 3 nights in Room 5, David room, which has a separate lounge area overlooking the courtyard and away from the traffic noise. The bed and rooms were comfortable and everything was clean. The breakfasts were copious with lots of choice. The rooms are tastefully decorated with large fireplaces but beware of the mantelpieces that stick out so are easy to walk into. Tea and coffee tray in the room and a fridge with fresh milk. There's also a large guest lounge with drinks, including an honesty bar. The property is about 15 minutes walk from the river and walking into and out of Launceston could be a problem for some guests because of the very steep hill.

Room Tip: Choose a courtyard facing room to ensure to a good nights sleep.

Gorgeous house - so much victoriana you saw something different everytime you looked. Spotlessly clean (must require an awful lot of dusting). Beautiful bone china tea cups and plates in the rooms, and the set in the dining room dresser is amazing. Jennifer was very helpful - she opened the dining room early for us (6.00am!) for breakfast as our airline had brought our flights forward so we were going to miss breakfast at the normal time. Not a cooked breakfast, but she did supply everything needed, including home-made products, for a lovely continental breakfast.
Furthermore, I left a bracelet in my room, which she readily forwarded to me, and even supplied a small jewellery pouch.

Room Tip: "Andrew" has a king size bed, but bathroom is rather small. "Emma" has a double...
