Good location and easy to find. Meticulously maintained property and friendly welcome. Room was very comfortable with is beautifully prepared breakfast in the morning. Easy to walk into town but a tough walk uphill to get back. Easy to get a taxi and fares very reasonable.

Launceston is a charming and lovely city in north center of Tasmania. The city is quaint and inviting. We were the only guests for the night during our stay, so that made our experience all the more pleasant. The guest house brings you back in time once you step into the front door. You feel the love the owners have...

Can highly recommend the Ashton Gate Guest House! We stayed two nights. Definitely our accomodation highlight whilst in Tasmania. There's a reason these guys are rated number one on TripAdvisor! Very professional and yet very personal as well. The guest house is exceptional in every detail. Breakfast was superb! Well done guys! Keep up the great work!

We stayed for 3 nights recently. The room was large and had a separate living area. The bathrooms were nice and modern. There was variety in the breakfast choices and was available between 8-9 am. We left early on the last day and the hosts were accommodating, opening up breakfast early at 7:30. The house wasn't too far distance wise...

This is one of Launceston's best kept secrets and Craig the Host is a true hospitality professional. My parter had left her handbag behind in the room after we left and Craig's efforts to return this to her was very much appreciated. Highly recommended if you don't like staying at boxed in motel rooms as it has a guest lounge...
