Lovely decor heritage furniture. Really charming. Big spa bath fitted two comfortable. Gorgeous four poster bed. Quite and close to CBD. Parking would be difficult for people with mobility issues along with the entrance. Breakfast was yummy. Will definitely stay again.

Good afternoon Catherine B,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for Waratah on York. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your time here and took advantage of the luxe spa bath. Please rest assured that any potential guests with mobility issues are accommodated in our sister property across the car park, as we empathise that the stairs can be tricky for some.

We'd like to take a moment to introduce ourselves as the new owners as of Jul 2018, and let you know that we will be updating a few things around here... including refreshing the rooms and updating the bookings terms and conditions so that people simply pay on arrival.

We hope you will return to Waratah on York to experience the difference for yourself, and look forward to accommodating you in the future.

Kind regards,

Clare & Bart

From checkin, everything was amazing. Upgrade to Honeymoon Suite with incredible views and such a comfortable bed. Spacious room, quiet, gracious surrounds and wonderful, substantial breakfast. Would stay again anytime.

We stayed here on a quick visit to see family. Staying here for 2 nights was great,the breakfasts we to die for in a separate building, the view was great overlooking city centre.
The room its self was Victorian style, old building with high ceiling and antique fittings. Just beautiful. would recommend.

Room Tip: Old building , but very well fitted out.

We spent two nights at the Waratah on York and loved it. The gorgeous old building is appropriately furnished to theme - loved the canopy bed,the spa on the verandah overlooking Launceston, the antique chairs and art work to match. Breakfast is served in the adjoining modern premises and is delicious - thanks for sharing the secret of your yummy mushrooms. Guests note - Launceston is hilly - expect stairs everywhere!

Room Tip: Treat yourself to the honeymoon suite - spa with a view

Great view from the room with friendly staff that are supportive but not in your face. Plenty of space in room 8 with a small balcony that adds a nice touch. Bed was comfortable and the breakfast the next morning was freshly cooked and very tasty. Would stay again.
