Waratah on York is a beautiful heritage building. My daughter and I stayed for 6 nights in the King Suite and loved it.

Dear three trekkers, Thank you for the great review! More than happy to serve the breakfast in the room for people leaving early, as we do not want any of our guest leave hungry. A good start of the day always makes a difference. So glad you enjoyed the stay and hopefully you had a fantastic hike. We look forward to accommodating you again in the future. Kind regards, Piia Waratah On York

The steps and walk down to Brisbane street are pretty formidable and should be mentioned on the website; the bedside light could not be wor43kd- not sure why. WE liked the breakfast.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! I am so sorry that you found the stairs to be an issue. They are however mentioned on all of our booking platforms. I am so sorry that your bedside lamp was not working, I will check now to ensure that everything is working as it should. I am so glad you liked our breakfast and I hope you got the chance to try our pancakes! See you next time! Yours kindly, Renee

A beautiful piece of history which was a pleasure to stay in. We were in room 10, the 3 bedroom apartment and everything was absolutley gorgeous. There is more than enough space in this mini-mansion and it had wonderful views over Launceston to boot! Only downside was that there was only one bathroom but, in a historical home, we were lucky to have a bathroom so no real complaints there!

Dear Guest, Thank you for the excellent review. We are delighted you loved our Three Bedroom apartment! It was fully renovated less than a year ago and we have been receiving great feedback from our guests. Yes, it does have just one bathroom, which is a downside, but you are right, it is because of the heritage building status. Thank you for your understanding, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we will have a chance to accommodate you soon again. With best regards from Launceston, Piia
