“Kids are still reminiscing about their stay...”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We had the best time! Everything you could need when travelling with children and more, was thoughtfully provided, including toys and craft materials, DVDs and last but not least, Pebbles and Bear, the pet rabbits. We had many activities planned for our trip to Launceston but we shelved many of them because the kids were having such a wonderful time at the apartment! We have travelled extensively as a family and i can honestly say that this place tops our list.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a fabulous time. The kids made muffins, fed the animals and did lots of craft. Given free choice of what to do for the day, doing craft and making muffins at the flat topped the list above sightseeing and tourist attractions !! We didn't have to worry about what was for breakfast; and on the few occasions it rained, the kids were never bored if we stayed in. Spacious, homely, and comfortable. By far the best self-contained accommodation we have ever stayed at. Fabulous views and great location. Just wonderful.

We stayed at Forest Rd apartments half way through our fortnight trip around Tasmania with our two daughters - aged 7 and 9. The girls absolutely loved it and it was difficult to get them to leave to go sightseeing. The fully stocked craft cupboard, toys, books, DVDs, games, and being able to feed the bunnies and chickens was wonderful for them. Us adults loved the views and making the beautiful muffins for which Jo provided ingredients and a recipe. The apartment was so large and beautifully decorated, and the beds were so comfortable. Thanks Jo for making us so welcome!

This was by far the best place we stayed at in our two weeks travelling around Tasmania. My teen and tween boys loved it too, wifi and lego, too good to be true! Clean, comfortable, everything you could possibly need or want in a self-catering apartment and what a view. The attention to detail is superb. Would recommend to everyone.

I had the good fortune to spend a couple of nights at forest road apartments recently and can only highly recommend a stay here if you were travelling to Launceston. Great views, very clean awesome attention to detail and a lovely feeling accommodation would be what awaits you. Absolutely brilliant.

Room Tip: Apartment 92A is the one to beat as far as I'm concerned.

What more could we ask for! So close to the shops and CBD, with a beautiful view each day. It was the little things that set this apart from other accommodation- the flowers and fudge, a welcoming note, everything that you needed to know in a book (where is Woolies, things to do, etc!), a comfy bed, with good parking! Washing machine and dryer included in the apartment was an added bonus! A well stocked kitchen as well. Loved the stay and recommend it to others, with or without kids! Jo added those little things that make it a home away from home!

From the moment we walked in the front door, we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. The views are spectacular, especially at night. The apartment has everything & i mean everything. From a well stocked pantry, to toys & crafts for the kids, toiletries, dvd's, foxtel, internet, i could go on and on. The owner Jo was so lovely & thoughful, leaving fudge as a welcome gift, recipe & ingredients to make muffins. She has thought of everything. The kids absolutely loved playing with the rabbits and chickens. The apartment is well located only about 5 mins drive from Launceston. We loved it here and would recommend Forest Rd Apartments to anyone looking for a place to stay in Launceston. You won't be disappointed. Thomson Family, Sydney
