Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After "offering" a cancellation a few weeks earlier (that we did not accept) this "lady" sent an abrupt text to say our booking was cancelled one week out from our stay Extremely inconvenient considering we wre travelling from interstate. The "Cheers Pam" at the end of the text was an added insult (no apologies to think of). Her subsequent responses were lies and hyperbole. Beware any bookings here or any of the many other properties she manages in Launceston including Elsmere Apartments and Leichhardt Farm Cottages.

Response from Pam von Stieglitz, Owner at Apartments At York Mansions
Responded 13 Mar 2021
Thirty succesful years in the hospitality industry has given me the confidence to choose what type of guests I have to stay at my properties. Justin Smith is not one of these. His threatening, aggressive, bullying and abusive behaviour towards me was relentless and ongoing over several conversations plus text messages. From time to time in this business you have cause to move bookings to alternative properties. If I need to do this I do it in consultation with my guests to arrange a better quality alternative and I cover the cost of these upgrades. On experiencing the appalling behaviour towards me I made the decision not to offer Justin Smith the considerable upgrade that I had arranged for him as an alternative. He simply did not deserve it. I am pleased that I did not have Justin Smith as a guest - he's not the type that I want to welcome as a guest in the property.

we have just tayed at the york mansions apartments - this was a 2 bedroom apartment which was very comfortable and clean, and enjoyable stay. Only thing if you are on the 2nd or upper floor there are stairs. Excellent stay well recommended, handy for most conveniences. Sheila - Adelaide SA

I have stayed in Launceston on many occasions, but this time I had a different need. There were 3 single adults each seeking a room in the same apartment. My search arrived at the Apartments at York Mansions and we received a very pleasant surprise. The York Mansions are in a very old building (1840),located in the CBD within easy walking distance to everything. The climb up the stairs is steep before you get to the apartment, but then you enter a very spacious 2-floor apartment, with a very generous living room, large master bedroom and 2 well-sized single bedrooms in the loft above. The views fro the living room and it’s attached small balcony over the Launceston CBD and beyond into the Tamar Valley are fantastic. We will certainly return.

This was the worst accommodation we had after circumnavigating Tasmania. We couldn't check in waiting in the hot sun until a lady decided to drive over and give us the key about 1.5 hrs later, rude response with no explanation. There's literally on 3 car parks for the ENTIRE building with the back of your car on the footpath. The toilet ran continually, the 2nd bedroom wasn't actually usable, it was in the attic with no headroom or space to move about. The first flight of stairs are very dangerous and don't comply with Australian Standards. Don't be fooled by the online photos .. don't stay here!!!!!

We have never stayed in an old place like this one. It was a different but overall good experience. It was a little impractical with the low head clearance, and it creaked and moaned, but it was full of character. The only downside was the smell of what seemed like cat urine which was hard to ignore

Response from Pamvons, Manager at Apartments At York Mansions
Responded 16 Jan 2019
Hi Andy I can assure you there is not cat urine odour in any of the apartments and I can only assume that if there was an odour such as this you would have rated your stay as much less than good which is the rating you have given as well as writing this in your comments. I expect that the low head clearance you a referring to is the corner in the second bedroom which is specific to my third floor apartments and the reason why I describe these apartments as having loft style second bedrooms. I also show the sloping corner ceiling in my photos. It is good to read that your first stay in an older style building was overall good and I hope you will return to stay at Apartments at York Mansions when next in Launceston.

I took my family on a weekend getaway to Launceston last weekend. We stayed at York Mansions. The location is perfect - very central. We all loved the accommodation - a real home away from home. The decor was beautiful with lovely gardens outside. Spotlessly clean. Highly recommend.

This place is unique & lovely. We stayed in the Duchess Apartment, perfect for our family of 5 and it was everything we needed... and more! Clean and big with a great bedroom in the roof space that the kids loved (one queen & one single). The downstairs bedroom has a queen and enough room for the cot that was set up for us. Heaters are provided which helped keep the rooms warm during the chilly nights. Self check-in was seamless, shower is hot, there is a bath for the kids & the shared garden outside is just glorious to walk through! Loved our stay in this well kept character apartment! Just be careful with parking outside - we thought the free parking out the front was on the street but the free parking is literally in front of the building (not on the street) which we only realised after getting a fine (having not seen the street signs when arriving late at night). Didn’t dampen our stay but just a warning. Would definitely stay again!!

Stayed at York Mansions in late April early May with my husband and my mum. It is an old house (1840) that has been converted to six apartments. Upon arrival we opened the bottom door and were greeted by three flights of steep narrow steps (mum was quite intimidated). We were staying in the duke of York apartment (top floor). I would recommend that if you are unable to manage stairs that you ask for grd floor or even the 1st floor (1 flight up). We managed to haul the luggage up and then my mum realised that her room was up another two flights, lucky she was a good sport. The apartment was very comfortable, good roomy lounge area, good bedroom with electric blankets, serviceable kitchen with everything you need, good bathroom only negative that it needs a shower curtain to stop the floor getting very wet. We did wonder how it would be in mid winter, there was a gas fire which we were using in April/May and we thought it would be a bit chilly in mid winter. There is a lovely garden out back and a little Juliette balcony in front, unfortunately our apartment had a big power pole right in front so pics from the balcony were not as nice as they could be, we saw a few fab sunsets whilst there. It’s a really good location, walking distance to restaurants and some nearby attractions like the park with the monkeys. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again b7t would ask for grd or first floor.

Very good position to walk into the city . The apartment is comfortable and well set up retaining the period charm of the building . Very good high speed wifi is provided . The bedroom is quiet and has a comfortable very pretty brass bed . The kitchen is fully equipped and there are laundry facilities . The gardens are lovely to walk around with pretty secluded tables to sit and enjoy a barbeque or quiet drink, surprising terraced space so close to the city . The staff are extremely helpful and friendly .
