Hideaway on George
Ranked #15 of 33 Launceston B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed 1 night but you really need at least 2 nights in Launceston. It was nice, very central right in town and very nice breakfast (hot and cold). The only down side for us is that it was a little more like a hotel rather than a more personal B&B as there are several houses/units/rooms all together that are used rather than the regular feeling of a B&B in someone's home/property with just 1 polite young man at reception and cooking.

Stayed: May 2014

We spent 2 nights at Fiona's B & B. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom townhouses (#12) and were really happy with our choice of accommodation. It is 5 minutes from town, there is ample parking, free wifi and a great cooked breakfast is included in the rate. The townhouse was spacious, with a living area and kitchen downstairs and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. The downstairs furniture could do with a makeover: a better lounge and a table and chairs instead of the single bed; and some more kitchen ware. Overall Fiona's was good value for money and gave us plenty of space and a homely feel instead of a bland motel room.

Five minutes walk from the centre of town, this B&B is excellent value. It is set back from the street so it is quiet and has plenty of parking spaces.My room was sparkling clean, comfortable and warm. Breakfast was good though let down by pretty ordinary coffee. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room not above the kitchen/dining room.

Stayed 2 nights in unit 2. This property has real potential but feel it has become a little run down by owner of 7 years. The courtyard at our unit was a disgrace. . Would say has not been swept or any sort of maintenance in months. Noticed on another balcony area outdoor furniture table had rotted. Carpet needed cleaning - even spot clean would help. Gardens need maintenance. Laundry done on site and that is a bit of an eye sore to see that on way to reception/breakfast room.
Rooms are excellent size and if you choose a suite with lounge it is very comfortable. All in all good value but a shame that the "care" factor has disappeared.

Room Tip: Room 2 satisfactory.

Really, this is good value for money and walking distance to the town centre. Cheeky little hill on way back at the accomodation itself.
No welcome except a key in the envelope outside the office...was after 5 though.
Lovely freshly cooked breakfast and local newspaper to mull over. Staff great. Very pleasant outlook from the breakfast room.
Cleanliness was good. My only negative observation was the bathroom venetion blind didn't shut properly and the towels were thin. Otherwise ideal for a few nights stay.

Room Tip: I had a delux room because I wanted a courtyard. Having been there I might opt for a room with balco...

What a great B & B, we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in the Loft and we had a wonderful view of the city. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is in town so very handy and easy walk to look around. We even walked to where we had dinner. We wished we could've stayed for another night. The loft was very comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities and 2 beautiful chairs to sit in also there were 2 window seats. The breakfast was great and also you could choose just cereal and toast or and cooked breakfast. We would definitely stay there again and great value for money.

Room Tip: If you don't mind walking up stairs and want a great view definitely book the loft.

I normally avoid bed and breakfast accommodation. I prefer the privacy of a hotel or apartment. I could not find such in Launceston so booked into Fiona's reluctantly.
And am very glad I did. Fiona's is in fact a little mews arrangement with various types of accommodaton set around a quiet courtyard with plenty of parking,
My room was a well laid out and nicely decorated spotlesslessly clean and quiet.Free wifi and free breakfast. The breakfast was hearty and when I got distracted by reading at the table the waitress offered to cook me a fresh one!
The location is great, near to centre of town.
I will be returning for and with pleasure next time.
