Good location and off street parking. There was a lot of stairs and some challenging access

Hello, Thank you for the review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and were pleased with the location of the property. Waratah On York is located on top of the hill and there are stairs to get to the building from the car park. Hopefully the stairs did not impact your stay too negatively. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to welcome you back again next time you are visiting Launceston. Kind regards, Piia
