We booked our 3 nights stay at the Highbury apartments directly with the owners and found the communication to be very friendly and efficient. A bit unusual not to be greeted upon arrival but Kate did pop by the following day. This house is a "grand old lady" which has been nicely converted to guest accommodation. The spotlessly clean apartment...

We stayed 2 nights in the "penthouse" - apartment 2. What a great experience and a perfect stay it was. The views from the veranda over Launceston were breathtaking and the sun streaming into the lounge and bedroom was a delight. Very spacious apartment. The attention to detail was exceptional, EVERY possible item placed to perfection and well thought through...

We stayed over a weekend in apartment 6 on the top floor with a balcony that has a wonderful view over the city, Tamar River and estuary. Kate was very helpful and the apartment had everything we needed. Beautifully renovated with very tasteful decor. Bright and clean. An easy walk down into town (healthy climb back up). On site parking...

Highbury has so much space, right in the middle of Lonnie. We stayed with another couple in Apartment 1. It has 2 good size bedrooms... lounge, good dining table, outside deck with views to the city and river. This apartment has been renovated but still has character features.. high ceilings, wood floors, new carpet, its crisp and white. With 2...

Almost at the top of the hill in Arthur St, Highbury Apartments is walking distance to the CBD but the last 200 metres up the hill are not for the faint-hearted! The good news is that, on one occasion we gave-in and took a cab from the Pennyroyal district on the other side of the city centre and it was...

We stayed here inadvertently after a major Launceston hotel bungled our booking. The apartments are in a good position overlooking Launceston and our apartment was huge with adequate facilities and an ideal working area with great views. The manager was the friendliest, most helpful lady. The price was more than reasonable. Most attractions are within a 10 minute walk and...

The Highbury Apartments are in a fantastic location with off street parking. The apartment we stayed in was very clean and and there were views of the river and city. The per night rate seemed quite high compared other places we have stayed at. There was no cable TV (which is a must in our opinion) and some of the...

one of the beds here was so terrible, i had to use pillows to sleep on! The place is tired and in need of a reno. Enough supplies for 3 people for 1 day, although 4 people were staying 3 days.
