Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place to stay We really enjoyed our stay. Very clean and spacious. Located on a quiet street close to Launceston city. No complaints. Suggestion, oven mitts would be a great addition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Cottage Well appointed cottage. Comfortable beds, good kitchen and laundry facilities. Single bed in alcove off the entry is open to the living area, meaning no privacy for the occupant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good old house with character We stayed at cottage on thistle in early January with 2 adults 2 kids, I thought it was clean and neat house with old style character, plenty of room and quiet location. You will need transport to get to the city which was about 5 -7 minutes away by car. The only small thing I can pick about our stay was we had 1 roll of toilet paper for 4 days but overall a comfortable house to stay in and fairly good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Large pleasanr home close to the city We enjoyed our stay at Cottage on Thistle. The property was clean and spacious and the location was quiet and suburban although just a few minutes drive to the city. There were a few little maintenance issues. Quite a few light bulbs in the property didn't work, including the one in the fridge. There was no hairdryer provided and although there was a lot of shampoo there was no conditioner. The bigger issue was that the lock on the back door didn't work meaning each time we went out we took our technology and valuables in the car with us. Non of these are major concerns (except for perhaps the non locking door), but these little things are what makes the difference between a good property and a great property.
