Loved our stay in Apartment 2, very clean and comfortable with awesome views over Launceston, felt like a local staying here. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. The attention to detail throughout the apartment make this a special place. Very close to town, the brochures and information about Launceston were much appreciated. Thanks and we look forward to staying here again in the future.

The apartment itself is pleasant and clean. However, apartment 4 where we stayed was *extremely* noisy. We literally could hear every footstep from the apartment above us. At some points I thought the lounge room windows were about to break because the simple act of the people walking in the apartment above us was shaking them so badly. We could hear every conversation they had and it sounded like they were dragging furniture around non stop. The location was great as it was very close to the CBD. But it was like living in a tent without the bugs. Booked through Expedia. Would never book this place again purely due to the extremely excessive surrounding noise.

Hello Hmmmm Its always surprising how some people love an apartment like the guests before you and some people don't , some people are positive and some are negative . Maybe a phone call to the manager could have helped ?

Stayed here with three adults and a child and it was fantastic for our needs. The city is in easy walking distance and the set up of the apartment was just what we need. Well laid out and clean with good cooking facilities. Free parking also a good bonus so close to the city.
