Lovely house. Jenny our was welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The supplied continental breakfast was high quality and more than ample,including fresh fruit, yougurt, orange juice, museli, toast, muffins. Comfortable bed, well appointed en-suite. Located in walking distance of restaurants and the Cataract Gorge.

Beautiful house, conveniently located.

Location: Very close to the city and Cataract Gorge.
Jenny was a most pleasant and helpful hostess. The house was beautifully restored and the garden was lovely. Jenny was only too pleased to show us around the house and tell us about it's history. The breakfast was extremely generous and more than enough for two people. We would love to go back and spend some more time in Launceston.
