The Apartment

Protea Hill offers luxury B&B accommodation at a perfect location. Very quiet and yet very close to the city of Launceston. Especially the cottage in the garden offers you all the privacy you want.

Protea Hill is a B&B accommodation in a very quiet area, with magnificent views over the Tamar River. It is only a couple of kilometers away from Launceston City. Half an hour's walk (or three minutes by car) brings you to the Cataract Gorge.

The Apartment has two bedrooms, one with a Queen Size bed, the other one with twin beds. If you book the Apartment as a couple, we don't rent out the second room to ensure your privacy. A spacious bathroom is part of the Apartment.

In a corner of the big garden is a very private and cosy Cottage with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. It has a glorious view over the river. Our website provides more details. Our prices are very reasonable, according to many of our guest way too low for what we have to offer. See for yourself!

This was a superb location and the accommodation was lovely. The hosts were kind and friendly, enjoyed the breakfasts. Lovely to think that such nice folk would share their beautiful home with others. Sitting out in the late afternoons was lovely, the scenery and nature were so peaceful after busy days.

The privacy and the breakfast provisions - loved the fresh strawberries & raspberries. Owners were great and even considered our needs in bringing over a fan when the weather turned hot. Convenience of location was excellent as were the views. Homemade biscuits were a real treat.Loved it.5/5 by ,
The only problems with Protea Hill was the lack of adequate living space for four adults and the absence of cooking facilities other than a microwave oven. The service provided by our hosts was very good and the view was fantastic. The property is also very well located with regard to Launceston and it's attractions.3/5 by , ACT

Convenient location with lovely views of the Tamar river, very friendly hosts; nice continental style breakfast. The fresh homegrown peaches and raspberries were a nice treat. Firm bed that I did not find uncomfortable. My partner has a bad back and was a little uncomfortable.4/5 by , QLD

A very comfortable stay with beautiful views, very helpful and accommodating hosts. Would highly recommend 'Protea Hill.'5/5 by , SA
Our stay was absolutely lovely. The rooms were nice and very clean as was the bathroom. The breakfast was great with fresh-baked bread daily. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and even provided some toys for our two-year old, as well as some valuable information about local facilities, such as restaurants, places to go etc. Great value for money and one we will definitely recommend to everyone we know.5/5 by , NSW
Lovely cottage with good views of the lights of Launceston at night. Very comfortable bed and nice breakfast. Great hospitality. You would need a car- although it is not that far out of centre of Launceston.5/5 by , VICTORIA
