The property sits atop a hill on High Street and while it is a 15-minute walk to the town center we usually drove as the trudge back uphill can be a little daunting - we are not big walkers btw. We've actually taken a walk around the neighborhood and it was lovely - peaceful and serene. It is set against a residential neighborhood and like much of Launceston, has a number of old, stone houses which really acts character to the surrounding.
We stayed in the Campbell room which is separated from the main house, which is like an annex to the main building. The bedroom and the living area are in separate rooms. What is immediately distinct is the meticulous care taken in decorating the room and making sure everything is tidy and in order. The room was tidied and the beds made everyday, which was a happy surprise for us as this was the first BnB that does that if we stayed more than one night. It is beautifully decorated with nice little touches here and there. What also stood out was the breakfast which had a good menu of hot items to order from. Breakfast hour is however short - between 8 to 9am, which is a little tight for us as there were three of us sharing the same bathroom. Nonetheless, I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone visiting Launceston.
