We came over for our wedding anniversary Wow what a amazing hotel, we were in the honeymoon suite it was fantastic!! The host could not be anymore accommodating if she tried. Waratah on York is a must stay when in Launceston.

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...

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...

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!

Our stay in the room with the balcony was a most pleasurable experience throughout our two nights there. The hospitality shown to us by the staff was of the highest standard. Breakfast was very nice and more than enough to eat, cooked and otherwise. It was a well kept room and the cleanliness was superb. Would like to stay there...

We stayed in a downstairs room which was extremely large. It was what we expected from the description of the establishment and in keeping with the heritage listing of the property. The linen was lovely, pillows exceptional if you like a thick pillow (my friend said they were too high for her - but a pillow is a very personal...

We stayed in the Elegant Heritage Suite I am afraid to say it needs refurbishing. Room was large enough and clean, the furniture was soiled and some of the furniture had scratches and gouges in them, the bed was like sleeping on concrete, no where to put anything. The cooked breakfast in the morning was barely enough to feed a...
