Once again a great stay at Elphin Villas. John, Anthea & the team at Elphin Villas go above and beyond when you stay. We made a late decision to go to Launceston, but a phone call had us booked in without a problem. We stayed in the Queen Motel room which has all we required for our overnight stay. What always impresses me about Elphin Villas is the rooms are always very clean and the welcome is sincere, with nothing a problem if you ask for something. I know we will definitely stay again when we go to Launceston. Thank you, you are the best!!

Location is why I booked Elphin Serviced Apartments. We had stayed previously and found the apartment to be quite comfortable, clean and met our needs. Access to the property and parking is great. Kmart and Coles is a 2 minute walk away. We will stay again.

Clean, comfortable, quiet. Just what we needed after long hard days work. The management are really pleasant and helpful (with good sense of humour too). That last please we were booked into was a real bomb of a place, so it was a great relief when we arrived here. Will be adding this to our list of preferred accommodation for when we down Launy again. Oh, and the rooms even have decent size bath and not just a shower! Really good after a hard day.

When travelling what makes a difference to your experience apart from how clean a place is (it was very clean), is how helpful the staff are and how willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible. This is the case at Elphin Villas, they could not have been more helpful. I had an electric car that needed charging and the manager bent over backwards to sort out an outlet for me to charge overnight. His wife was so very friendly as well.

Miss Polly Dolly, I know your real name but we will go with this. It was our pleasure to be able to help you with your Electric car recharging. It was great to know when you sleep no matter we’re you are all you need is a power point to recharge the car. I really want to buy one now. We really try hard to get our guests experience as homely as it can be. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with other guests. From the Heart of Launceston John, Anthea & the Elphin team
