Launceston is a nice small city. It has a great layout with lots of central downtown dining options, sites and shopping. 242 is located immediately outside that center, but is still very accessible to it, even by walking. 242 is made up of a few apartments, each is unique and named. We stayed in The Studio. Ours had nice woodwork, a modern, but tiny, kitchen, and a sizable bedroom and bathroom. Main complaint is that it can be challenging lugging suitcases up the narrow spiral stair case to the bedroom. I also wasn't a fan of the smell which seemed to be due to the various soap & lotion products based on Tasmanian botanicals that were provided.

There is limited, free parking accommodating 3 cars in a tight fit. There is also a shared laundry facility on the premises.

242 has great proximity to local grocery stores, big ones, as well as a produce store and a butcher shop in case you want to make use of your kitchenette. There are many restaurants within walking distance. Note the Burger Got Soul restaurant had 30-45 minute waits the two times we tried. If you don't like what you see near you, just walk along Charles St. to the city center and you'll find many more. The walk into the heart of the city (such as the visitor center) is a solid 15 minute walk. You'll pass by some nice churches, and a park or two. There are lots of shops and restaurants there. Feels like a much bigger city although that's because its quite compact. While you can walk to Cataract Gorge from 242, it's a little hilly so I'd advise driving to that although they charge for parking there.

We really enjoyed our stay in Launceston. It feels like a great place to live.

Room Tip: Read the room descriptions carefully for what suits you as each is unique.

We spent two nights in The Terrace. What a delightful place to stay in Launceston. The apartment is beautifully appointed and Pam (owner/manager) has thought of absolutely everything - top quality tea/coffee/breakfast products, even yummy cookies in the cookie jar. Deliciously soft bath robes. Fabulously deep, hot spa bath. The BEST bed and pillow - the best sleep I had on the entire holiday. The apartment is well located - a pleasant walk to the main shopping area, but far enough away for some quiet and privacy. Pub, green grocer, cafes and a Coles just around the corner. I highly recommend The Terrace (and assume that the other properties which make up TwoFourTwo apartments are just as good). Thanks Pam.

We stayed for one night in The Terrace...what a beautiful apartment!
The modern kitchen was equipped with good quality items with everything we needed. A great range of coffee and tea, and very generous breakfast provisions. Upstairs, the bed was beautiful and comfy and the little balcony was a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine and take in the view.The bathroom was spacious and spotlessly clean and the toiletries provided, which are made in Tasmania, were just divine! Lots of little things that make this a great place to stay, like homemade biscuits,quality linen, late checkout, a lovely selection of books,a great little wine list, even a picnic basket with a list of suggested shops to buy beautiful local produce to fill it with! And there's a pair of great bikes free for guests to use,we had a fabulous early morning ride before breakfast! Being Tasmanians, we visit Launceston from time to time and this lovely apartment will definitely be our go to accommodation choice in the future.
Highly recommend it!

We stayed for one night on a quick weekend getaway. It was a comfortable stay and Pam was very accommodating with ensuring the apartment was ready for early check in for us. The apartment is in a convenient spot, we was able to walk to aurora stadium and also to our dinner in Paterson Street. We will recommended this apartment to our friends and family if they are having a short stay in Launceston. Thanks Pam!

We visit Launceston as often as we can, mainly to visit the Pinot Shop, and we always stay at TwoFourTwo. As others have noted the apartments are spacious, warm and very well equipped. There are a number of coffee shops and restaurants almost next store and it is a very short walk into the centre of town. Highly recommended.
