We have stayed at many guest houses, hotels, and B&B's throughout the world and this is one of the best anywhere. We have been staying here, roughly twice a year, for around 7-8 years with my daughter and her family and never once has it failed to delight. Brilliant hostess, Jennifer Beevers, great breakfasts with home made delights, wonderfully appointed,...

Stayed only one night at this lovely B&B. Warm welcome from the owner, very comfortable room (LOVED the mattress) and very generous breakfast, all added up to a very enjoyable stay. Will stay again - thank you folks :-)

Loved, loved, loved this place. Our biggest regret was that we were so booked with tours we didn't get to spend enough time enjoying this beautiful home! Andrew room was very nice. Enjoyed the guest lounge too. Hostess went above and beyond to help me try to track down a bag left in a taxi. Highly recommend!

We had the misfortune of a cancelled night flight which turned into a very fortunate stay at this beautiful property. After calling all over the city looking for a room, our host Jennifer checked us in far past her normal hours, gave us a tour of the house, and made us comfortable in a lovely room. The entire property is...

A group of friends booked 5 rooms for a 2-night stay in Launceston. We could not have chosen a nicer place to stay. The rooms were all well maintained and spacious, as you would expect given the age of the house. Bathrooms were modern and well equipped. We used the lovely period furnished lounge room for a drink before strolling...

We visited Tasmania to complete the Overland Track, and needed to base ourselves somewhere in Launceston both before the Track and after. Ashton Gate is conveniently located within walking distance to the heart of the Launceston city centre, was the perfect base for us. The house and rooms were beautifully appointed, with every detail carefully considered. Breakfast was beautifully offered...

One of the things my wife and I really love about Launceston is the large number of Victorian style buildings that have been retained in the area. My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in the Jennifer Cottage at Ashton Gate Guest House in Launceston in early February this year. Jennifer the owner, made us feel very welcome....
