Stayed one night at this gorgeous B&B recently. Lovely room with all inclusions at a high standard. Continental breakfast was more substantial than at most other places with fruit, reasonable coffee and eggs on top of the standard fare. Location is good with views over Launceston. Great value. Highly recommend this place.

Unfortunately, we only stayed one night in this magnificent B & B but will definitely be back. It is in a great location with the most comfortable bed l have ever slept in, a very extensive breakfast option for such an exclusive small place. I can not speak highly enough of this place, can't wait to return.

This is a lovely B & B with quaint and comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. Near to the town centre and parking. Confusing check in! Well, it wouldn't be if I had read the confirmation email but I hadn't.

From the moment we walked up to the front door, Highfield House exceeded all expectations. Not only is the house a visual delight but the fabulous aroma from candles, salts and reeds diffusers throughout adds to the senses. There is no detail overlooked in the rooms. Exquisite bed linen, towels, toiletries and even a linen robe add to the experience....

We stayed for 2 nights and would highly recommend it. The Elizabeth Suite was private and so welcoming, the candles throughout the house make it smell beautiful. We had afternoon wines on the front balcony with blankets and binoculars provided. Breakfast was very sufficient and all of the city sights were in walking distance.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our room and the breakfast!! Easy walk to the CBD and great restaurants. We had a "picnic dinner" in the front room with a beautiful view of the city at sunset. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Happy to recommend.

We stayed with a group of eight - 4 couples and it was great to have the house to ourselves. The inside of the house was decorated lovely and modern and very comfortable. Bed was super comfortable and the additions of candles to burn and the electric blanket were great. Didn't need it though as we were very fortunate to...
