Waratah on York in Launceston is gorgeous - inside and out. We were moved to a brighter room with airconditioning as they were experiencing a heat wave. The bed and the pillows in our room were like sleeping on a cloud - literally. The chef Michael was very pleasant and happy to cook whatever you could want for a hot...

Total disaster from the time we entered our room. Room was dirty, carpet stained, television wouldn't work, faulty power switches in the room making lights flickering on and off through the night felt unsafe. Manager advise was she was unable to get electrician as it was the weekend. No apologies and no offer for another room. No hair dryer in...

The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. It had an unusual mix of old and chinese furniture. Could have done with a carpet in the hallway to cut down on the noise of people walking past our room. Breakfast was in the building behind but was very good. Would recommend.

This is the second time we have stayed at this great place.

The carpet was heavily stained and the room was a bit musty, but the bathroom was very clean and the bed comfortable enough with very clean sheets. breakfast is very generous in the modern part of the premises, but it felt a bit strange going from old wordly to...

We were totally disgusted with our room. The room smelt awful. The carpets were stained and the bathroom was clean but boring. Spa totally uninviting. How on earth it ever got a 4 star rating is beyond me. My rating 3. It is not pretty or luxurious in any way. Just a large spartan room.

We came over for our wedding anniversary Wow what a amazing hotel, we were in the honeymoon suite it was fantastic!! The host could not be anymore accommodating if she tried. Waratah on York is a must stay when in Launceston.

I was so excited about arriving at a 4.5 star B&B....but was a little disappointed. We were in the Heritage suite room. The strange thing about this room is that people entering the B&B from York street have to walk along a path that was right up next to the house and therefore could peer direct into the room AND...

We stayed at Waratah on York the weekend the AFL was in Launceston, which we now realise was the main reason for all the noise - but Waratah on York have an old and a new section. We stayed in the new section and you could hear every group that arrived home - it was quite loud as there are...

This is a quaint, homey place to stay with lovely people. The breakfast (included) was varied and delicious. The jet tub and cozy Victorian feel was exactly what we needed after several days of driving and hiking. It is an easy walk to the park and downtown restaurants. I would highly recommend Waratah on York!
