The room was very comfortable and clean and will definitely come back again. The stuff was extremely kind and helpful. I wasn't sure where to go for dinner. She recommended us a great place. Also free spirit to taste.

The house is well decorated with old fashioned items. All my friends were welcomed warmly by the lovely manager. The house is not very close to restaurant, but it's just 5 mins driving to the city. It's a nice place to stay again and highly recommended.

It's located within walking distance of restaurants, cafe and grocery stores. Vickie is the consummate host and you feel as though you are a welcome. The Kilmarnock House has been under new management , so is quite different than we stayed a year ago .

The house was very antique and old fashioned. The interior of ensuite was not very clean and housekeeping needs improvement. The parking was not enough. There was no official reception on duty and the staff was not friendly and a bit robotic when dealing with guests.

We stayed here a total of three nights at the beginning and end our honeymoon and were very happy with it. I loved the historical feeling of the house, and the service was LOVELY and so accommodating. Good little kitchenette in the honeymoon suites (we stayed in a different room on our second visit). Good bathrooms, plenty of room to...

The home is gorgeous, parking tight. The ensuite was very small and overall the presentation was a bit stuck in the 1980s. The hosts were very casual - not a very professional outfit. The location was good but Launceston is an odd place - very country town. Industrial/functional meets residential/commercial. Tamar River cruise great and we loved the Cataract Gorge....

We stayed at Kilmarnock House 25 years ago and have great memories of billowing lace curtains, gleaming wood and a warm welcome. Twenty-five years later and the host does not greet you but chain smokes out the back on their phone. We waited and waited and did not realise that he was the housekeeper. On top of our 2 night...

Stayed for 2 days. Check in was almost non existent. We arrived at 9pm. Called the number on the main door. Was given the password for the key box and we were in the building. Room smelled funny. We were in room 8. No housekeeping service offered. This place is managed by two young Chinese couple. Not very professional but...
