Ashton Gate Guest House offers historic bed and breakfast accommodation in Launceston, Northern Tasmania. Built in 1880, the house is decorated in period style and surrounded by a delightful rose garden.
There are seven well-appointed ensuite rooms in the house and a self-contained cottage. Rooms are appointed with king-size, queen-size, double and twin single beds. There is a deluxe spa suite, one room has a separate bedroom and several have comfortable armchairs within the room. The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, a sitting room with day bed ensemble and fold-out single sofa bed as well as a separate queen bedroom. There is a generous living space exuding provincial style. The house and cottage overlook a lovely green park filled with oak trees.
After a hearty cooked breakfast in the stately breakfast room, a short walk takes you to the city centre where you can visit museums, art galleries and the magnificent Cataract Gorge. Enjoy a cruise on the stately Tamar River and take a short drive out to the cool-climate wineries of the Tamar Valley. Return to the comfort of Ashton Gate's guest lounge and cosy log fire or enjoy a pre-dinner drink on the outside deck.
Typically an Ensuite Room has bed/s and own bathing and toilet facilities accessed from within the room.
'Jennifer" was formerly the servant's quarters and exudes provincial style and practicality. A large, sparkling fully tiled bathroom with separate shower and bath, a sitting room with a day bed ensemble, a separate and romantic queen bed room and a fully equipped kitchen/dining room combine to make this as many have remarked - 'a haven away from home'.
