We had the misfortune of a cancelled night flight which turned into a very fortunate stay at this beautiful property. After calling all over the city looking for a room, our host Jennifer checked us in far past her normal hours, gave us a tour of the house, and made us comfortable in a lovely room. The entire property is...

A group of friends booked 5 rooms for a 2-night stay in Launceston. We could not have chosen a nicer place to stay. The rooms were all well maintained and spacious, as you would expect given the age of the house. Bathrooms were modern and well equipped. We used the lovely period furnished lounge room for a drink before strolling...

We visited Tasmania to complete the Overland Track, and needed to base ourselves somewhere in Launceston both before the Track and after. Ashton Gate is conveniently located within walking distance to the heart of the Launceston city centre, was the perfect base for us. The house and rooms were beautifully appointed, with every detail carefully considered. Breakfast was beautifully offered...

One of the things my wife and I really love about Launceston is the large number of Victorian style buildings that have been retained in the area. My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in the Jennifer Cottage at Ashton Gate Guest House in Launceston in early February this year. Jennifer the owner, made us feel very welcome....

I stayed here in December 2016 with my partner for an evening, we found our spa suite to be nice and well featured. We appreciated such touches as the big mirrors and the electric towel racks in the bathroom. However, you don't come here for the spa but rather the hospitality and the small touches of warmth the place has...

Good location and easy to find. Meticulously maintained property and friendly welcome. Room was very comfortable with is beautifully prepared breakfast in the morning. Easy to walk into town but a tough walk uphill to get back. Easy to get a taxi and fares very reasonable.
