Dear John, Thank you for reviewing our property. We are so glad to hear you were pleased with your room, breakfast and our service. We understand the challenge to park large vehicles here. Launceston is hilly with narrow streets. At the same time we are glad to provide parking for free for our guests. We hope the steep driveway did not impact your stay too negatively and you enjoyed your time on Launceston. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you here again one day. Kind regards, Piia
