We loved our stay here. It was a beautiful old building with lots of period features. Comfy room with lots of space. The accommodation is on the side of a steep hill but the view is spoilt a bit by the newer motel built out the back but overall a good location near city park and close to city centre. The continental breakfast was good but finished a little early (9am) for our liking.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Waratah on York. Spa overlooking Launceston city was a lovely bit of luxury and perfect for unwinding after long days sightseeing. Bed was firm but comfortable, fresh cooked breakfast each morning was really nice. All in all a good experience that made our holiday a little more special. Thank you

Very pleasant, helpful staff. The room is in need of some TLC to make it the perfect colonial room. However the room is very large, comfortable 4 poster bed and a perfectly positioned spa bath in a west facing sun room.
WiFi is free with a very good connection. Breakfast is freshly cooked and with good quality and quantity fare.
Disappointing to have the full payment for the 2 night stay taken from our account 4 weeks prior to our stay.

Room Tip: Spa room facing west

Lovely decor heritage furniture. Really charming. Big spa bath fitted two comfortable. Gorgeous four poster bed. Quite and close to CBD. Parking would be difficult for people with mobility issues along with the entrance. Breakfast was yummy. Will definitely stay again.

From checkin, everything was amazing. Upgrade to Honeymoon Suite with incredible views and such a comfortable bed. Spacious room, quiet, gracious surrounds and wonderful, substantial breakfast. Would stay again anytime.
