heritage accommodation with a fresh new edge
LAUNCESTON | Tasmania
Nestled away on a quiet Launceston street, our heritage-listed, self-contained cottages for two are the perfect balance of luxury and cosiness. Each is uniquely and tastefully themed with just the right touch of nostalgia and old-world charm.
The English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh cottages each pay homage to the property’s rich history, whilst our newly added Ironbark celebrates our own Aussie farming heritage. The theatrical French and Outlander cottages simply whisk you away to another world.
Each unique self-contained cottage for two includes:
hearty breakfast basket for two | spa or claw-foot bath | fire place | reverse-cycle heating and cooling | welcome drinks | convenient on-site parking | free wi-fi | guest laundry
The Alice's Cottages Experience...
Our accommodation is a little different to most – we sit somewhere between a bed & breakfast and a hotel... you could call us boutique self-service cottages!
Our aim is to take the cold and stuffiness out of hotel accommodation and breathe a very homely, stylish and welcoming feel into our cottages, without being in our guests face like old-school bed & breakfast stays!
We own and run two properties, so we cannot be everywhere at once – but it has made us a little creative and innovative in how to streamline our processes and ensure your stay is very smooth, even without us being present… and at the end of the day… it is great on your pocket in terms of lower pricing being passed on to our wonderful guests! Basically it allows our guests to be able to stay in our grand historic properties at extremely affordable prices!
