Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2 nights at Thistle Cottage I don't usually write reviews. I booked this cottage for two Easter nights for very cheap price, almost half of the price other accommodation quoted. then read the previous reviews made me nervous about my choice. I was actually very surprised how nice, tidy and clean this cottage is, compare to other reviews, much higher than expectation. We felt in love straight away with the fruity backyard, each guest eats at least 4 apples a day and my sister loves the raw blackberries. It's closed to everything you needed. The only thing couldn't make my review to 5 stars is the noisy floor and squeaking beds, too noisy to have a good sleep. But overall. We are happy for what we've paid for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cottages. Quiet and convenient location! We stayed at Station Cottage and loved how it is nestled quietly at the back of the property. It is also very close to all that Launceston and surrounds have to offer! The train carriages and replica train platform outside add a real charm, while the interior offers a very spacious main room with all the amenities we required including fridge, microwave and stove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from our stay at Art Deco Cfottage Launceston We loved staying at Art Deco Cottage because it provided a comfortable, affordable home close to Hobart's many tourist attractions and restaurants. We could see from the car park, Mt Wellington covered in snow and looming above us. Wonderful
