“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Ellie's with our family. It is a wonderful place, full of warmth and charm. It is spotlessly clean and has everything a family could possibly need. Good internet was a hit with our children. Perfect location and Bronwyn is very easy to work with when booking. We will stay here again for sure.

And Yes, good WiFi certainly keeps everyone happy!
We would love to have your group stay again

“A Voyage to Yesteryear”
Reviewed 28 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

A charming and well appointed residence directly across the road from the main city park at Launceston. We had a very enjoyable stay at the place for 5 days whilst attending an international sporting carnival held nearby. The residence was creatively decorated with household items from last century which complemented the heritage look and feel of the residence (it included an original wood/coal stove still in situ, the obligatory out of tune "honky tonk" piano and an impressive collection of old kettles/water jugs). There were plenty of bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms were very large and comfortable (one even included an old fire place to provide some visual entertainment). The main kitchen/living area was large enough to entertain the family and other members of the group and there was a quite lounge room retreat in the front of the house. The main advantage of the house is its location. You can walk straight out the front door and across the road to the city park which is a traditional heritage style park from the Victorian era but also includes an imported colony of snow monkeys from Japan. A short walk further and you are into the cafes in the main street of Launceston. On one evening, we organised a BBQ for an extended group in the park using the BBQ facilities and play area which are conveniently located directly across the road from the house. The price was on the expensive end of the spectrum but represented good value in the context of another family staying with us.

HI Guys, thanks so much for your great review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Ellies Place on City Park. We think Ellies is a pretty special place- the location is the best in Launceston opposite the wonderful City Park (one of Australia's top ten parks)and the Heritage listed building has lots of hints of yesteryear but of course with all the modern amenities, including WiFi, ducted heating and plenty of home entertainment (besides the heirloom piano which is seriously out of tune!) Hope to have you visit again one day
Kind regards

“A wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We have just spent 4 nights at Ellie's Place. My husband, our 6 yr old daughter and my parents (81 & 77yrs old). A fantastic location, with the park across the road, we walked to mall, museums, restuarants and to Cataract Gorge. The house was spotlessly clean and was just like a home away from home, reminiscent of "Escape to the Country". It had everything you would need and more. Bronwyn, the owner was very helpful even assisting in putting some supplies in as we flew in Xmas Day. We could highly recommend Ellie's Place we all loved staying there. We would definitely stay again if returning to Launceston.

Charming historical house in an ideal position in Launceston. Beautifully furnished and impeccably clean. Our family of four were very comfortable with room to spare. I would highly recommend Ellie's Place and we are already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you Bron.

“Gorgeous Family- Friendly House”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

I must say I have always wondered what it look like inside these cute Victorian houses and I am so glad that we managed to stay in one that is as gorgeous and family friendly as Ellie's. The house is as beautiful and lovely as Bronwyn and filled with her wonderful family heirlooms. Most of these "antique" houses will never allow kids to stay but not for Bronwyn. . However seeing so much love and care has been put in this house, we were also extremely strict with our 10,8,6 yr old kids too as we don't want them to inadvertently damage any antiques :) But All in all, it was a truly wonderful experience for the children .
Yes the carpeted stairs is a tad narrow but not a issue for my reasonably fit parents-in-laws in the early 70s. It would be tough to lug up your large luggage up the stairs so we left them downstairs. But it is after all a 1800s house . In fact, the kids had lots of fun "sliding" down the stairs and they now fondly remember Bronwyn's house as the house with the sliding stairs.
Oh, and the city park across the road was simply divine with the playground literally a stone's throw away. Also there is a huge Coles supermarket down the road. We stayed for 2 nights and really didn't want to leave.
BTW, Browyn had a new heating installed , plus all beds have electric blankets and portable heaters.
If you are in Launceston, do yourself a favour and stay here for a truly memorable stay.

Dear Suan
Thank you very much for the lovely review and I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Ellie's Place. Although the house has lots of little treasures we like people to enjoy them and only ask that our guests treat the house as they would the house of a friend. It was a pleasure to meet your lovely family and perhaps "my friend" we will see you again one day!
