This was my favourite place I rested my car-journey-weary head in Tassie. It is smack bang in the middle of the nicest and most historical part of Launceston so location is a 10 from 10. The building itself is a stunning example of colonial Tasmanian architecture, but with all the modern essentials a traveler needs. Some may yearn for a "bigger tv" with "more channels" but this misses the whole point of traveling doesn't it now? This B & B offers the perfect contextual place to stay. The host and hostess are a faultless and loving couple who bent over backwards to accommodate our party, this included turning the radiator on in our room prior to our arrival "home" each night, deicing our windscreen every morning and answering any and every question we had about Tassie and Launceston. Each morning we ate breakfast which was a homely serve of eggs and toast, with muesli, cereals, fruits and tea and coffee till your hearts content. My girlfriend and I liked the place so much we stayed there at the beginning and end of our journey across Tasmania as we flew in and out of Launceston airport. Truly a delight and source of ever warm memories from a lovely trip.
