“Decorated to charm and please.”
Reviewed November 20, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Nothing but praise for this property. From very personal introduction by Liz and Shane on arrival to the charm of the whole house, from bedrooms to living areas, enhanced by artwork and sophisticated room accessories. Meticulously clean, every thing functional and advice re Launceston City and attractions. Home from home, Loved the unique shower recess. It is a city property, so the only drawback is that it is amongst the traffic and that has some drawbacks, at least on a Saturday night. Conversely, so easy to walk to the shops and waterside attractions eliminating need for a vehicle to get around.

We've stayed in self contained accommodation in many parts of the world and feel qualified to say that 2 up on York rates very highly. Liz and Shane are a delight and take obvious pride in presenting a spotless and comfort-laden residence to you. They were so easy to deal with when we had to change our booking due to a sudden illness, and it was like being greeted by old friends when we finally got to meet them.
The location is ideal for a visit to Launceston as it is right on the edge of the town centre.
Book 2 up on York with confidence. You'll thoroughly enjoy all of the little surprises the place has in store for you.

Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was everything we'd hoped for....and More!
The entire Townhouse is pristine, quality Bedding and Manchester, and every possible comfort is catered for.
Liz and Shane were waiting, during a downpour, for us to arrive, and what a lovely, warm welcome it was!
Easy 5 minute stroll to CBD, Restaurants, Cafes, City Park and Cataract Gorge.
After a days adventuring, it was delightful to return to this inviting Home away from Home.
Will stay again and highly recommend !

“Excellent accommodation in the centre of Launceston - great presentation!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed one night in Two Up for our overnight stay in Launceston. Beautifully presented - a great option for honeymooners or friends travelling together, especially those who prefer self catered accommodation. The pictures do not lie.

Close to Cataract Gorge, cafes and restaurants. The town house was cosy but also replete with modern comforts including 2 televisions, a DVD player, a Nescafe machine, a new bathroom (I am very particular about bathrooms). Shane and Liz have taken great care to put lovely finishing touches such as an information desk, magazines, books, maps, DVDs, playing cards and chess. Even the spare toilet paper ends were folded into lovely bunny rabbits.

The cherry on top to the entire experience was the couple themselves. Liz and Shane were very warm and welcoming, generously giving us Tim Tams to greet our arrival and beautiful fresh flowers. Such a great check in experience and much much better than our experience at Peppers Cradle Mountain.

A beautiful place to stay in launceston - a real home away from home. Shane and Liz are wonderful and have done a great job on this accommodation.
The apartment literally has everything you need - plus attention to all the small details as a bonus! I would definitely stay here again!

“The best holiday/business rental in Launceston”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed for three nights and it was our second choice as another property could not accommodate us. I am so pleased that we did as this was perfect for us. It is so close to everything and we even had off street car parking . The house has been renovated extensively to a very high standard, the interior design and furnishings are beautiful and every room has so many creature comforts . A special touch is the hand made soaps and plenty of towels were supplied ( often overlooked in other accommodations) . Flat screen tv and a fully equipped kitchen with quality crockery, glass and crystal wear a lovely touch. There were even some pantry items for us to use. Liz and Shane are great people and gave us a very warm and friendly welcome. We will be back!

“Launceston- excellent roomy townhouse: city walking: friendly owners”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Two Up on York in May 2014, and had the very nicest of accommodation experiences. This beautifully appointed and roomy refurbished colonial townhouse has everything, including obliging, down to earth, friendly owners, Liz and Shane. It’s so well appointed, stocked and fitted that we felt we were living in someone’s own house. The two bedroom, two level townhouse was a wonderful warm, snug home away from home in a chilly week. Off street parking (6 feet from back door), but you can walk to almost everywhere. It is 15 mins stroll to the CBD shops, and about the same to the best Launceston restaurants. The internal stairs could be a challenge to old or frail guests (such is the nature of historical architecture ), but bathroom facilities are on both levels. We were very happy with the whole stay.
