“All you could ask for...”
Reviewed 22 November 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My wife and I (with 8 and 11 year old boys) loved our stay at Ellie's place. Communication with the owner was flawless. The home is positioned nicely in town. We enjoyed runs along the river and playing in the park across the street. It was easy to find food nearby and to navigate ourselves in and out of town for exploring. The house is spacious, comfortable, and well stocked. The kitchen was a particular delight since we were traveling for nearly a month and here we felt like it was our home. Stay here!

Thanks so much for your great review, I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay and it's great to see families spending time together exploring the neighbourhood. The park and the trail along the river bank are great fun aren't they!
Kind regards

“Be transported back in time.....”
Reviewed 12 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

So lovely to stay in a beautiful and evidently much loved historical property. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who showed us around and gave tips and advice. If you want to stay somewhere that is charming, caters for every need and allows you to feel completely at home, then Ellie's Place is a must. A delightful change from slick, modern properties.

Great location, across the road from a lovely park which has a great play area, a regular train ride, monkeys in an enclosure and beautiful orchids in the conservatory. A for minutes on from there you are in bustling launceston.

The children were open mouthed at staying in such an 'old property' - they loved that it had stairs and a big old clawed bath. We had to fight over who got to soak in the bubbles first!

We were lucky enough to have glorious sunshine - so sitting amongst the flowers in the pretty back garden with a cuppa was a wonderful start to the day. All bedrooms had extremely comfortable beds.

I really can't fault this magical place and will definitely revisit again in the not too distant future.

Big thank you to Bronwyn for making us feel so very welcome and for sharing your beautiful property with us :-)

“Everything we expected and more!”
Reviewed 14 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Thanks Bronwyn for sharing your beautiful home with us. A cosy retreat in the middle of a Tassie winter, seven of us were accommodated in complete comfort for two nights. It was a shame we couldn't stay longer.
Close to everything, but quiet, a lovely walk through City Park into town or down to the Seaport.
Bronwyn couldn't do enough for us. She even threw in a win for Hawthorn. Perfect!

It was a pleasure having you all stay- nothing nicer than seeing families and friends get together for a great weekend. So pleased you got the Hawthorn win- I'll be just as happy when the Tiger's Trent Cotchin wins the Brownlow medal!
Hope to see you all again :)

“Best place to stay in launceston”
Reviewed 29 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Excellent location and a large comfortable home with fantastic decor. highly recommended for anyone going to launceston. Easy walk in to town for dinner or drinks, yet out of the main streets so nice and quite.

“Exquisite property where everything is thought of!”
Reviewed 22 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We spent two nights at Elle's Place because we saw it rated highly in reviews. We expected something special, but were blown away! This home has been beautifully decorated and the details are amazing. From sitting in the cosy front lounge, to cooking in the beautiful kitchen and relaxing in the claw foot bath! Ellie's place has it all... even a study with an old piano (beyond tuning... but fun anyway:) and you even get monkeys across the road! Only disappoinment is we'd only arranged for two nights in Launceston. We'll certainly be coming back! We'd highly recommend Ellie's Place and the warm hospitality of Bron:)
