We could not have received a warmer welcome and received all the information we needed to make the best of our stay. The house and in particular our room - the Newton was tastefully decorated, retained original features, was clean and spacious. The bathroom was small but provided everything that we needed. Breakfast was on communal tables and it was good to talk to the other guests - all of whom were friendly wanting to share information on what to do and offer us advice on what we should do on other elements of our trip. My only criticism is that I hate full English breakfast and there was no option for poached or boiled eggs as an alternative and fruit was in syrup rather than fresh. There was a choice of cereals.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kurrajong House. Linda is such a lovely person and she was so kind to upgrade us to the Emily Room as it was available. The room was so beautiful! Breakfast was also good and hearty.

This B&B is in excellent hands with the new owners Lin and Andre. Elegant heritage home with spacious and comfortable rooms. A good night's sleep is important to me, so we appreciated the quality bed and bedding. We loved the ambiance and the décor. Excellent breakfast too! Our hosts were friendly and helpful.

This is a fantastic place to base your stay in the area. The house is spacious and we'll looked after. Lin & Andre are lovely and friendly , have some great tips and experiences to share. Highly recommended for a quiet, peaceful stay. Also try Pickled Evening for a fab Indian meal, Andre will give you directions.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms.

We stayed at Kurrajong House for 2 nights in one of the King size rooms.

The house is absolutely gorgeous, the rooms are well appointed and the area is residential and quiet. The owners only just took over the property and are still finding their way around the area, but are really lovely and overly helpful. they pointed out several interesting activities to do and recommended restaurants to try. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: We stayed in Emily, one of the King size rooms and it was very beautiful. My parents stayed in Newto...

We arrived at Kurrajong House on Australia Day, with no notice, and needing accommodation because a tiger snake had moved into the accommodation we had booked! The hosts were so very kind, finding us a room and welcoming us and our daughter. The rooms are exquisite and breakfast is gorgeous. This is superb accommodation within easy walking distance of the city, parks and restaurants. We couldn't fault this accommodation and will definitely stay there again any time we visit Launceston.

Room Tip: There are heritage rooms within the main house - just beautiful. There are also two rooms that have...

Lovely light and good sized bedroom in a beautiful old B&B, modernised whilst still retaining lots of the lovely original features. Cold and hot breakfast was very good. Very steep walk up/down from the town but easy to drive there if needed.
