Convenient to the city and just minutes from the Cataract Gorge and all city attractions, Cottage On Thistle sleeps up to 7 people with a comfortable lounge and sunny kitchen and dining area.

Located near a 24 hour mini market as well as several trendy or family restaurants, Cottage on Thistle is great for the short or extended stay and self catering guests.

The cottage has been recently remodelled and renovated and boasts a new bathroom, modern kitchen and a new feel about it .... even though it was originally built in the early 1900's.

Comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

We chose the Cottage on Thistle as it was close to the Country Club where we attended a concert. We were very grateful that the owner emailed us directions prior to our stay and the cottage was easy to find. The outdoor area is well maintained and plenty of off street parking. The house itself was clean but as we had 6 adults staying we were a bit disappointed that the fold out bed was not made up prior to our arrival - and then we couldn't find sheets. The light in one of the bedrooms had a blown bulb. Small complaints. Overall the house was great - thanks for letting us stay.

Wonderful place to stay with a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Launceston. My 2 boys enjoyed the back garden especially after a week in a hotel - we all loved the extra space. Will definitely recommend this property to friends and hope to get back to Tasmania soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Jenny and thanks for booking with us. We supply instructions for the TV operation but it appears they've been removed accidentally or misplaced.. Our maintenance people have been advised of the need to replace some of the globes . The front lawn and garden is well kept but we do understand the large backyard is more difficult to maintain - especially at this time of year when growth does get away from you at times.
