The hotel, which is an ex-convent, is very clean and comfortable, with super-comfy beds - and the best stocked bar fridge we've ever seen! The manager is passionate about the hotel, generously sharing tips and knowledgeable about the local area. In fact, he shared a couple of fascinating stories with us from when the hotel was the Presentation Sister's Convent. The room we stayed in the first night held a king-size bed, with clean, white sheets and comfortable mattress. Fluffy white towels also provided in bathroom. On the second trip, we had a larger room with bath and QS bed. I would have preferred another KS bed, as room was larger, however, bed was again very comfortable and we both had a good sleep. Hotel is located on west side of Launceston, with Cuccina cafe a quick walk down the road. This same street (Frederick) leads up to Cataract Gorge and some of the amazing architectural gems of Launceston. Would definitely stay again and recommended to other travellers.

It's a pleasant guest house with spacious rooms (well, ours was) - once a convent - and good facilities. We hit a warm spell in Launceston and were glad of the (silent) aircon. The manager is very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local sights and eateries. The building has the well worn characteristics of a grand Victorian house, so allowances need be made. Pity there's no breakfast; the nearby Cuccina cafe does a good one, but it will delay the start of your day.

When in Launceston, take Hamlet’s advice to Ophelia and stay a night or more at Auldington. Once a three-storey convent but now very much a quality boutique hotel. The transition reflects thought, care and vision. We had a most comfortable and enjoyable four night stay here. Our City Spa Suite was spacious with high ceilings and with two large opening windows overlooking an expansive balcony and lovely city views. It was immaculately clean and was as described. We enjoyed the comfortable bed, the hot shower with plenty of pressure, the generous ensuite bathroom, large fluffy towels, the included onsite parking and a sense of space and gentle ambience. The guest reading room was comfortable. It was wonderful to spend time on the large balconies sipping a G&T and taking in the beautiful view and enjoying the gentle breeze. We met like-minded people there on the balcony who said that they always came to Auldington when visiting Launceston. “A no-brainer”. We could understand this. On arrival, we were sincerely welcomed by James at Reception, comprehensively briefed on local attractions and quality eating venues for all tastes. We were led up to our room and familiarised with operational things such as air conditioning, TV and housekeeping. James was keen to see that we were comfortable for our stay. Housekeeping staff were also lovely and respectful. James was very hands-on, personable and available to provide any assistance required. Everything was about making the experience a positive one. The room compendium (and website) is also comprehensive, informative and easily accessed. Reflects understated effort and thoughtfulness. We also enjoyed its proximity to the places we expected to visit. Cataract Gorge Basin is out the back and just up and over the hill. Great cafes, restaurants and supermarkets are within walking distance. Everything in town is only a short drive or a short Uber away. We enjoyed a morning coffee at Cuccina (over the road) and dined well at Cataract on Paterson, Pickled Evenings, Buddha Thai, Monsoon & Levee Food Co. Cuccina also do a great breakfast. We enjoyed our stay in Launceston. Good measures for accommodation are quality, personal service and location. Auldington has these in spades. Thanks James & Team.

We stayed here for a week and are very pleased we chose the Auldington. We were welcomed by James who was as helpful and informative as anyone can be, he is a very attentive host. The building is a character property which is full of charm. We were given a top floor room with a balcony which overlooked the town, it was a splendid view. The room was large and bright with a fridge, tea and coffee making and a small amount of crockery so that food could be enjoyed in the room. The bed was comfortable, we slept very well there. The location is good in that it is away from the main road, slightly up a hill. The shopping district is about 20 minutes walk away, the waterfront is about 15 minutes. The grounds were well kept and there is a car park for guests. We were sad to leave at the end of our week.

What a fantastic stay I had at the Audlington Park with my two mates at the start and finish of our 7-day hike in the Walls of Jerusalem. James was so welcoming and helpful, and the rooms are beautifully clean, comfortable and spacious with all conveniences. And there’s a wonderful cafe just 5 minutes walk away. Fabulous value. Highly recommended!

A very quaint , boutique hotel in Launceston. Originally a nunnery this hotel is beautiful and the manager/concierge is very knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms were very good . The views from the room are lovely. Located centrally, the Gorge is pretty close. The wharf with all the eateries is a 10 minute drive. Only drawback was limited parking on the premises.

An unexpected joy to stay. I visited Launceston, and my stay was with a sense of de ja vu, having lived and being schooled in the general area. The original convent has been converted to a very comfortable hotel, with an extraordinary panoramic view, especially from my room with a special balcony. The gardens in front of the building are especially delightful, and provide an instant welcome when proceeding to check in. James turned out to be an excellent host, and even escorted me to my room and to point out its features. An almost unheard of action these days. The room was complemented with a most comfortable bed, well stocked mini bar, tea and coffee set up, a great size tv and comfortable en-suite bathroom. I could not want for more, and reluctantly had to leave the next day, but with a promise to return as soon as possible.

My partner and I weren’t exactly sure what to expect and after a bad experience last time we travelled to launceston we had low expectations, but this place really surprised us. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and it’s in a great location. It’s close to the city but hidden away so it feels private. The car park is easily accessible and there are multiple so you’re guaranteed to find a spot. The exterior is so nice looking and the garden out the front is lovely, and it just gets better when you go inside. The interior is so welcoming and has a really homely feel, the tvs are modern and rooms come with complimentary wifi and netflix. The bathroom is incredible aswell, had a huge spa bath and a very spacious shower with great pressure and temperature. The room itself is incredibly spacious and the black out blinds and curtains keeps the room incredibly dark. Overall we are extremely pleased with our stay and will definitely be returning!

Our host James could not have been more helpful - help with suitcases, dinner options, anything. Our room was wonderful, with a comfortable bed, glorious city views, a desk overlooking those views (which were also visible from the bed), stocked fridge, internet with no data restrictions and a high quality smart TV with open Netflix access. We bought takeaway so we could sit on the balcony and enjoy the great view as we ate. The venetian blinds could be nicely adjusted to provide privacy and still enjoy the views. James helped again with the suitcases in the morning. We've got to get back for a longer stay.
