Wonderful comfortable property but........

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated in keeping with its vintage. It was v clean, well appointed and comfortable. The BUT is: the property was advertised as 4 bedrooms 2 bathrooms but only had a full bathroom (extremely good with shower, full bath & toilet ) and another separate toilet with hand basin. We managed with 6 adults but felt we were mislead. However after speaking with the owner she explained Stayz does not have the capacity on their web site to advertised 1 1/2 bathrooms so maybe Stayz needs to improve.Except for that disappointment the house is highly recommended.

Home away from home - plus a touch of luxury

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned home following my second stay at Twyford House. My first stay was in June this year with my mum, dad, husband and 3 year old son. The second stay was with my grandfather. Twyford was everything we could have wished for and more. It was certainly a home away from home, suitable for my extended family but cosy enough for two of us.

From the king size beds, beautiful garden, huge bathtub and snug sitting room nothing is overlooked in this beautiful historic home. And the kitchen – that stove – a cooks dream!!!

Thank you Bronwyn for your hospitality and for adding a touch of luxury to our Tasmanian holidays. We will be back.

Absolutely stunning, perfect and a must stay

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, cosy and homely cottage to stay at in Launceston. Close to shops and had everything that we needed. We loved the box of toys and high chair provided for our 16 month old, as well as a portable cot with linen for him. Our king size bed was so comfy and we loved the little finishing touches in the rooms making the house feel homely and welcoming. The kitchen was so inviting, and great to cook up a nice warm dinner in, on the cold winter nights during our stay. It was well equipped, which made cooking a homely meal easy. We also loved the claw foot bath in the bathroom, so nice to relax in after a day of exploring Launceston. The home was very tidy, comfortable and located in a very handy location. Free wifi was also another plus for us. This home definitely ticks all the boxes for a perfect holiday. We will always remember our stay at Twyford, and we highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Launceston. We hope to return again one day and thank Bronwyn for providing such a warm, welcoming home for us to stay in.

Owner's Response: HI Karita, Thanks so much for your beautiful review. it was a pleasure having you stay at Twyford and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We have tried to include everything to make the house a home away from home (with a few special touches) for guests. There is so much to see in northern Tasmania and would love to have you visit Twyford again , or our other property, Ellie's Place on City park Kind rgards Bron and Darren Bishop

A gorgeous home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous and spacious, so nice to stay in a house which feels like you've turned back time but still have all the modern comforts beautiful furnishings, a great central location to everything the shops being only walking distance is so convenient, the kitchen is also impressive and we enjoyed cooking meals very well equiped also the bathroom with the claw foot bath and beautiful windows overlooking a private garden was such a relaxing treat, booking with Bronwyn was easy and super friendly couldn't help us enough with information and places of interest, I don't think anyone would be disappointed in Twyford and we would love to stay again.
