Hi George
Ranked #6 of 33 Launceston B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 March 2017

The cost is moderate and the location convenient. The room is adequately sized, the bed comfortable, the TV and wifi work, and the bathroom is very clean. As a tip to the budget price, there's no room fridge (there's a communal one outside the room). One bonus was the off-street parking.

Breakfast is a little unusual as it's taken in the generous kitchen/dining space of the owners' unit at the back of the hotel. A range of cereals and some fruit and yoghurt, which you have while chatting to David (a.k.a. George) as he cooks your breakfast of choice on the kitchen hob - and after 20 years in the business he knows how to get eggs just right!

David was also very helpful with odd details such as printing boarding passes after online check-in, and getting an airport taxi. Very much recommended.

Room Tip: We had a room at the front. Street noise was high by day, but quiet by night, and we slept very well...

What a wonderful 5 nights staying with David "aka" as George and wife Fiona.
From the spacious spottless room c/w ensuite to the magic buffet or hot breakfast presented by Fiona, enhanced by conversation with fellow guests around the 10 seat table .
George is "Tassie" from way back and a fountain of knowledge.
From the first welcoming smile to the hugs all round as we left !! they had made us feel like part of the family. 5 big Stars

We recently spent four nights at Hi George which is a very comfortable and cosy place. We were booked on two day tours which started at 7.15 am and normal breakfast time started at 7.30 am.
The owners insisted that they cook us an English breakfast at 6.30 am on both days. We had a wonderful breakfast which included delicious home made blackberry jam, toast, cereals, eggs, bacon and tomatoes, bananas, orange juice and coffee.
The owners are very friendly and charming and a great source of local knowledge. Highly recommended.

My partner and I very much enjoyed our one night stay at Hi George. Reasonable rate, great service, great location, nice clean rooms and good breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We would definitely stay again.
