“Filthy disgusting hole.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2012 via mobile

We were totally disgusted with our room. The room smelt awful. The carpets were stained and the bathroom was clean but boring. Spa totally uninviting. How on earth it ever got a 4 star rating is beyond me. My rating 3. It is not pretty or luxurious in any way. Just a large spartan room.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

I was so excited about arriving at a 4.5 star B&B....but was a little disappointed. We were in the Heritage suite room. The strange thing about this room is that people entering the B&B from York street have to walk along a path that was right up next to the house and therefore could peer direct into the room AND bathroom. So during the day we had to keep one bedroom bland down. Plus the bathroom only has a thin lace curtain. So needless to say it was a bit disconcerting. The rooom showed quite a bit of wear and tear. But it felt large and spacious due to the lovely high ceilings. Breakfast was huge and generous. Location was good. Overall a nice stay but not 4.5 star.

We stayed at Waratah on York the weekend the AFL was in Launceston, which we now realise was the main reason for all the noise - but Waratah on York have an old and a new section.

We stayed in the new section and you could hear every group that arrived home - it was quite loud as there are only tiles on the corridors (high heels - so loud).

In the morning we could hear everyone pulling out their chairs at the breakfast area which was just down stairs and there were so many people eating at once it was quite noisy.

The old section was much quieter and way more nicely styled. However the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was nicely cooked.

Room Tip: Choose the older section for a better room or the new section for a little bit of a view.

This is a quaint, homey place to stay with lovely people. The breakfast (included) was varied and delicious. The jet tub and cozy Victorian feel was exactly what we needed after several days of driving and hiking. It is an easy walk to the park and downtown restaurants. I would highly recommend Waratah on York!
