“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 25 April 2011

We stayed in The Studio apartment over the Easter weekend and loved it. It really is a home away from home and beautifully furnished (the iPod docking station and pillow menu is a nice touch). The attention to detail is so thoughtful, loved the breakfast provisions with local produce, and the local area information with suggestions for tours/restaurants/attractions. The apartment is just near several cafes (the bakery is amazing) and a major supermarket and only a 5-10 minute walk into the centre of town. The modern kitchen is stocked with everything you could need if you wanted to stay in. The chill-out vibe was just perfect for the long weekend and had the best nights sleep in ages. Couldn't fault Two Four Two and will definitely be back.

I stayed here for one night before heading up to Cradle Mountain. This place was so nice. I had the upstairs studio and it was perfect. They had breakfast that you could eat, but I didn't...I traveled alone, so I prefer to eat at restaurants.

It is in a perfect location. It's within of walking distance of downtown area and plenty of bars. For an American traveling alone, I couldn't ask for more. Next time I'm in Tasmania, I'll be staying here for a little bit longer. I do recommend that you stay here. They go by the honor system on what you drink, should you choose to drink from what they have in the room. Bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was clean and very nice appointments.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Two Four Two on a trip to Tasmania with my husband, two small children (ages 4 and 6) and my 78 year old Mother-in-law. We started and finished our trip with stays at Two Four Two and were very happy with this choice. We stayed in 'The Bakehouse' which had ample room for all 5 of us. The kids and the Mother-in-law stayed upstairs in a mezzanine style bedroom and my husband and I were very accommodated in the main bedroom downstairs - the room had a wonderfully comfy king size bed. Everything was just lovely. It was like your own little home away from home. Guest laundry (no extra charge) on site, breakfast supplies provided. Good supply of wines and beers to choose from (full size bottles too)! The apartment was spotlessly clean and had lots of thoughtful little touches. A lovely courtyard to enjoy time outdoors complete with potted herbs to add to your morning omlette! Baskets of books and toys added to the childrens room. Shiny red apples left on pillows had our children convinced that Tasmania was home to an apple bunny! Hot water bottles and plenty of throws to keep you nice and warm. The apartments are located just off Charles Street - which is a lovely spot with plenty of restaurants to choose from and a wonderful pastisserie Tant Por Tant just metres from your doorstep! Katie (one of the owners) was lovely coming to meet us upon our initial check in and leaving a welcome note for us second time around. Katie very helpfully provided us with suggestions of what to do whilst in Launceston. Launceston is a lovely spot and I would absolutely recommend Two Four Two as the perfect spot to stay whilst exploring all that the city has to offer. We will be back!

Katie met us on arrival and was very helpful,her attention to detail shows in the high standard of 242 and we felt right at home.
Breakfast provisions were excellent and 3 of 4 eggs I cracked were obviously free range double yokers ....the size of duck eggs !

My wife and myself love Launceston of all our stops because of its fine heritage buildings its tidiness and accessibility on foot ...a car is not essential when staying at 242.

A must is a coffee and cake/croissant at Tant por Tant which is better than most boulangeries in France. They received an award as the best bakers of croissants in Australia.

Walking to the city and the Tamar river gorge is very pleasant as is the weather in Launceston at this time of year.

Glad we had more than one or two nights. 5 nights was just the right amount of time to enjoy the wonderful accomodation, the location and the surrounding delights of the Tamar Valley (the wines and the cherries) and the restaurants of Launceston.

A perfect and relaxing break and a pleasure to get away from the humidity of Sydney.

This place is fantastic!

All the little details have been thought of from the wonderful food magazines in the apartment to the bowl of washing powder & softener in the laundry.

We stayed in the studio and it was a fantastic! It is best suited to couples, as there is a tight staircase to the apartment.

The coffee shop next door made a fantastic cappuccino & we enjoyed a terrific breakfast.

The location is a an easy walk to all amenities.

The only downside is that we didn’t get to stay longer.

My husband, daughter and I stayed for 2 nights before Christmas and were absolutely delighted with The Bakehouse apartment. Stylish and comfortable with absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, overlooked (there were apples on the pillows). Convenient to great eateries and town. Thanks Katie for the beautiful breakfasts and home made biscuits. Would absolutely stay there whenever we're in Launceston.
